We all need to do sensible detoxing periodically. Most of us are taking in a heavy load of toxins. Think about what’s in the air we breath, water we use, food & drinks we consume, skin & hair products we put on, and chemicals we encounter at home, school, work – out on farmland or in big cities. This blog post is not primarily about why we need to detox or how to choose the type of detox program that’s best for you. Those are very important and need to be examined thoroughly prior to detoxing. Here I’m pointing out that detoxing can be an emotional roller coaster. It’s good to prepare for that as you plan the suitable detox program for wherever you are on your wellness journey.
If we not know about principles of holistic wellness modalities such as the use of essential oils or homeopathic remedies versus the actions of allopathic medicines, we may not know that commonly prescribed drugs, such as antibiotics and steroids, drive disease processes deeper into the tissues and suppress them. The disease process will have to manifest at some point in the future if suppressed with pharmaceuticals. We are very fortunate that methods and technologies exists to balance the body, so it can heal itself.
