Here is a detox drink that will allow you to get rid of toxins and treat all ailments they cause.
The impact of toxins on the body
The liver is the organ responsible for two important functions in our body: it metabolizes fats and detoxifies the blood. So if it is wrapped in fat, you are more likely to gain weight and have more health problems.
Also, when you are stressed, the fat cells release toxins. They damage the cells and concentrate in the blood. Once arrived in the liver, they submerge and affect its operation, hindering its ability to burn fat.
Toxins are stored in the muscle tissue, nerve and brain, and are released to the lesser episode of stress. According to Dr. Paula Baillie-Hamilton, one of the world leaders in environmental medicine, the weight gain problem is due to poisoning and the great pressure from toxic chemicals on our natural mechanism of weight regulation. These include products we use every day such as detergents and household products, cosmetics, and even some food products.
Besides, Dr Baillie- Hamilton published a book she entitled The Body Restoration Plan -Eliminate Chemical Calories and Repair Your Body’s Natural Slimming System in which she says and explains the correlation between toxic synthetic chemicals and the epidemic obesity.
The best solution is to detoxify your body and naturally eliminate all the toxins that have accumulated there, which impact its operation and causing the slowdown in the fat burning process.
