What are toxins and why do we care?
We live in a world full of toxins. Recent research has shown that new born babies have as many as 173 toxin substances in their blood stream. The toxins come from chemicals in our environment, from air pollution, water pollution, pesticides, preservatives, food additives, flame retardants, to name but a few of a very long list. Toxins can affect our health in many ways, from weight gain to disease. Removing toxins from the body can lead to more clear skin, loss of inches, loss of weight and may improve general health. The simple ways of ridding ourselves of toxins include drinking plenty of clean water or use of a steam room or sauna. There are toxins that require more direct action to release them. The body protects itself from toxins surrounding them in water and sealing them in the fat cell that lie just under the skin. These are the stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to normal diet and exercise programs. Only release of the stored toxins will allow the fat tissue surrounding them to collapse.
