In order to clean the body of harmful substances and strengthen the immune system, more and more people are swearing by detoxification cures. But as popular as detox, purification and fasting cures may be – opinions on body detoxification differ widely. While many orthodox doctors completely doubt the effectiveness, experts from naturopathy and alternative medicine trust in the healing abilities of detox cures. Even if there are so far no clear studies for effectiveness, a positive effect of such treatment methods cannot be denied completely. To detoxify the body does not mean to remove any nutrients from the body, but has above all one goal: to bring the organism back into balance through a healthy and low-pollutant lifestyle.
An unhealthy diet, alcohol, nicotine, exhaust gases – all these things burden the human organism and present the metabolic apparatus with unexpected challenges. The immense strain does not pass the body by without a trace. On the contrary: permanent contact with harmful substances from the environment, cosmetic products with microplastics, chemically treated textiles, nicotine, alcohol, caffeine and food with additives brings your body to the limits of its capabilities.
