A detox bath is one of the easiest healing therapies that help to facilitate the body’s natural detoxification system.
Detoxification is the process through which the body removes dangerous compounds like toxins. This process is carried out naturally without even the body knowing it. However, the capacity of the body’s detoxification process is limitless.
Toxins are present in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink and can cause a great deal of harm if not checked.
In this day and age, we have been subjected to more toxins that ever.
The Detoxification Process
According to medical studies, detox baths help to relieve pain when used on a continuous basis. The toxin will start to find their way out of your body—through your pores-- within 20 minutes in form of sweat. Epsom salt is known for its sulfate properties, which is an essential mineral that is lacking in some people’s body. With the help of sulfate, the body is detoxified of environmental chemicals, food additives, some certain drugs and even toxins present in the liver and intestine. Additionally, the detoxification of built-up hormones is possible—thyroid and estrogen.
Ginger is used in the detoxification process to enable the opening of the body pores and expulsion of toxins. According to Quest Advance Condition website, ginger works perfectly well as a pain reliever. If it happens that you experience flu-like symptoms the next day, this is an indication that the body is getting rid of poisons. Baking soda provides an alkaline medium, which pulls the toxic substance from the skin at a much faster rate.
It is quite imperative that we enhance our body’s ability to detoxify and expel waste, while minimizing our body’s exposure to toxins. This is essential for good health, as so many of today’s diseases are toxic-related.
The expulsion of toxins and metabolic waste from the body is done by converting them into water-soluble compounds.
Once they are water soluble, elimination can be done forthwith from the body through the urine. Certain waste products are not water soluble, thus they are transformed by the liver and excreted in the bile. The bile is subsequently transported to the intestine, where it exits the body through our bowels.
Toxins that are not eliminated or totally removed by either of these processes may then be eliminated through our skin via sweat.
Detox baths helps in the elimination of excess fat and buildup of toxin. Furthermore, it helps in restoration and body rejuvenation. At-home baths are cost-effective and very assessable. Detox baths need no ingestion of any substance and can be carried out in privacy and at one’s leisure. Energy levels are accelerated, while digestion and sleep patterns are enhanced.
