25 Detox Tips by Grail Springs Retreat

What exactly are toxins? Toxins are substances that have harmful effects on the body. They come from food, water, air, from chemicals used to grow and process food, coffee, sugar, pre-packaged foods and junk foods.   Normally, a person can process these toxins in the liver, kidneys and other organs and eliminate them in the feces, urine, and perspiration.

However dehydration, a lack of exercise, a lifestyle of stress and anxiety, a lack of dietary fibre and constipation, insufficient consumption of fresh vegetables and fruit, and the cumulative effect of chemicals in our food are just some of the common lifestyle factors that impair normal detoxification and cause toxins to hang around in our digestive, lymphatic, skin, and other places in our body where they can cause damage.

Detoxification is the missing link in modern health care. Grail Springs is a leader in educating and supporting clients in this important area of personal and planetary health.Elson M. Haas, MD, America's Detox Doc, advisor to Grail Springs
