Detoxification

Your body normally tolerates a low level of toxins in the blood. The toxins are absorbed everyday through the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. At the same time, your body tries to expel the toxins through urination and bowel movement. As a result, the level of toxins in your body is kept at a low tolerable level.

Problems arise when the toxin level increases past the threshold. The threshold is not an absolute number. It varies from person to person due to different degrees of immunity. Two reasons cause the toxic level to increase. One is higher toxicity in the food and the environment. The other is the liver, kidneys, and the blood losing some ability to expel the toxins.

What are the symptoms of high toxicity? Skin itch or rash are most common. Organ dysfunction or cancer are serious that may kill. There are many other symptoms in between.

A Chinese prescription for detox involves:

  • Cleanse the blood, meaning using herbs to expel the toxins in the blood.
  • Strengthen the liver and the kidneys which are the main detox organs.
  • Strengthen other organs if necessary.
  • Nourish the skin if necessary.
