Exercise can kick-start the natural detox process as it flushes out the lungs, and cleanses the skin as we work up a sweat. It also increases blood flow promoting better circulation pumping white blood cells through the body in turn helping organs cleanse themselves effectively. Exercise such as aerobics at least three times a week for 20 minute sessions is all you need, as during the detox process you don’t want to over exert yourself.
Our hearts speed up the cleansing process
When we rest our heart sends oxygen and nutrition to all parts of the body pumping 10 litres of blood in every minute. With exercise this amount increases incrementally and nutrition and oxygen from the blood are enriched. As the cells are filled with this enriched blood our body is able to eliminate toxic waste faster and these extra nutrients are used in fixing the structural and chemical damage in the cells. This process continues even after the body turns to sleep mode.
Supports waste cleaning system
Our lymphatic system works with blood vessels and together they clean the waste piled up in the cells and toxins are transferred into the veins of the lymphatic system . When the cells are free from toxins, they function more effectively and have less risk of sickness and disease.
Flush out toxins through sweating
We start sweating when we exercise due to increasing body temperature – this is the cooling mechanism of our body. Sweating is the best way of unclogging the pores, which lightens the work-load of kidneys by letting extra acid and other toxins out through the skin. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water to re-hydrate during exercise.
Exercising also regulates the digestion enabling food wastes to be washed away from the body. Aerobic exercise helps the food we’ve eaten move along through the gastrointestinal tract by strengthening the abdomen muscles.
The increasing amount of oxygen that reaches the cells along with toxin elimination enable alkalization and renewal of the cells, which effectively supports the body in all stages of detox. You can join a fitness retreat at TheLifeCo centers.
