Why is detoxifying so important or do you really need to detoxify at all?

The body is like a car. You take in fuel, burn it and get energy and exhaust. If this exhaust is not vented from your car it will begin to run poorly and eventually stop running altogether. If you went extended periods of time without changing your oil filter your car would not run efficiently and eventually would stop working (just ask my sister). We get our lines and other parts of the car flushed (cleaned) on a regular basis.

Your body also has lines and filters. Your kidneys and liver are two very important filters. Your veins, arteries and lymphatic system are like the lines in your car. If we do not vent or remove the toxic “exhaust” from our body we will begin to run less efficiently and perhaps stop working completely. Since we cannot roll into our doctor’s office and ask them to change our filters and flush our lines, it is important to detoxify naturally and on a regular basis.

I cannot stress it enough-we are like our cars-without regular maintenance we will not function optimally. Using the best oil, gas etc., is a waste of money if your car is not maintained, because it will not be able to utilize it the way it was intended.  If we do not detoxify, the supplements, diet, exercise and everything else we do to produce wellness will not be utilized and absorbed properly.

Detoxifying is suggested two times a year.  […]
