Feeling tired, run-down, fat, bloated, depressed, sore or just plain blah? It might be time to give your body a rest from the toxins that it battles every day because of pollution, allergies, flour, sugar, nicotine, alcohol, fast food and pesticides.

Detoxification can be very simply defined as the process of reducing the buildup of various poisonous materials in the body. The accumulationSigns-Youre-Exhausted-1 of toxins can lead to all kinds of physical problems including —


  • Arthritis
  • Back Pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Immune Disorders
  • Kidney Stones
  • Prostrate Cancer
  • Respiratory Problems
  • Sinus Problems

At the Pinewood Natural Healthcare Center we offer all kinds of options that can assist for detoxification process later but first of all let’s look at why a periodic cleansing of the body is crucial in this day to keep your body happy and healthy.

Is The Cure Worse Than The Disease?

It seems that when it comes to illness that the cure might be worse than disease. One of the primary reasons for the need for detoxification is the need to mitigate the effects of bombarding our bodies with synthetic drugs such as antibiotics, antidepressants or pain relievers. Antibiotics, in particular, can cause an overgrowth of candida yeast in the intestine and cause all kinds of unpleasant secondary symptoms such as a constant “hung over feeling”, fatigue and intestinal pain and bloating

The environment itself is so toxic thanks to toxins in the water, air and food that we eat. Even if we are eating organic it is often necessary to consider ways to periodically take a load off of our internal organs so they can cleanse and heal themselves.

Organs like the liver, kidneys, lungs, intestines, and blood work continuously to clean out every cell, organ and tissue. This internal process keeps us from stewing in our own waste products that are the inevitable result of our bodies working overtime to fight free radical damage to our cells. Although this internal cleansing system is very efficient it is true that it gets overloaded very easily because of the sheer amount of toxins in our environment – everything from hormones in our milk to estrogen from plastic containers to cyanide from other people’s cigarette smoke.

Common symptoms of a body overburdened with toxins include skin and hair problems, along with a general deterioration of health, and an increase in episodes of sickness.

Beauty Comes From the Inside

Have you ever heard of that saying – “Beauty comes from the inside?” That is what detoxification is all about. If your internal organs are working properly (unburdened by mucus, inflammation and other problems) then the result is usually also a beautiful complexion, a slender body and clear and healthy outlook on life.

Many doctors and researchers believe that toxicity can result in immune suppression and chronic diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s. Among the benefits of internal cleansing are disease prevention and treatment, weight loss, clean skin, improved flexibility and slowed aging.
