The Benefits Of Body Cleansing

The Benefits Of Body Cleansing
By Stacey Zimmerman

The idea behind body cleansing is to neutralise and eliminate toxins that have built up in the body. A toxin is a compound that changes the structure of cells and tissues in your body, as well as change how the body cells and tissues function. Toxins are in the environment everywhere and can be caused by such things as tobacco, pesticides, food additives, and pollution. To properly maintain how your body is functioning, a body cleansing can be done to clear the toxins out of the body. While not everyone cleanses their body regularly, the benefits of body cleansing are many and this should be done regularly. The following are just some of the ways in which body cleansing can benefit you.

Helps Prevent Diseases
When the body is prolonged to certain chemicals or hormones over a period of time, there are diseases that take over the body due to this build up of chemicals or hormones in the body cells and tissues. For example, a woman who has prolonged exposure to the hormones and chemicals of oral contraceptives is more prone to get certain types of cancer than a woman who has never used oral contraceptives.

Another example would be smoking cigarettes. Chemicals from the tobacco and nicotine build up in the body's cells and tissues. Research has proven that the chemicals from the cigarettes can cause lung cancer.

Treat Diseases
Body cleansing has also been helpful in treating several diseases, including those of autoimmune diseases, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and digestive disorders, as well as heart disease and other degenerative diseases. While body cleansing will not cure the disease, it is very helpful in treating the symptoms. An example of how this can treat a disease is if one is suffering from a digestive disorder, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, a body cleansing or colon cleansing can help to reduce the symptoms such as constipation or diarrhoea. When toxins build up in the colon, nutrients that your body needs are restricted from being absorbed. Not only do nutrients get blocked, but water that is in the colon that should be filtered back into the bloodstream, is also blocked. This can lead to dehydration, as well as autointoxication. A thorough cleansing of the body, the colon included, will help to eliminate the toxins within the colon and thereby allow it to function better.

Increased Energy
By cleansing the body of toxins, your body will be functioning at its best. This can only lead to a vast improvement in how your body absorbs nutrients. In turn, you can look forward to increased energy and stamina after a body cleansing. These are just a few of the benefits of body cleansing. Not only will you feel better, body cleansing is known to help you lose weight, which will make you look better, as well. Your skin will both look and feel healthier as harmful toxins can prevent your skin from being healthy. Many individuals practice detoxification of the skin through a combination of diet, hydrotherapy, and sauna. As the skin eliminates as much as ten percent of the body's elimination, you'll see why individuals that have chronic constipation will quite often have skin conditions, as well. However, with regularly scheduled body cleansings, you can enjoy a healthier and more active lifestyle while feeling better and looking great.
