How do Internal Organs assist the body to rid itself of harmful toxins through detoxification?
Detoxification Programs stimulate specific detoxification organs to cleanse the body of impurities and toxic waste. The organs most likely involved include the liver, kidneys, small and large intestine, the skin and the lungs. These organs all have specific detoxification functions to insure that harmful toxins are removed. Sometimes the function of these organs is compromised due to overwhelming toxic burdens that we have been exposed to in our diet, air or water. At this point the body needs the help of a detoxification program to rid itself of harmful toxic substances. Using a detoxification program will reduce the toxic load and your body will concentrate its energy on purification and weight reduction. This will help you to achieve optimal health by cleansing the body from the inside out.*

Digests food so that nutrients can be absorbed into the blood and transported to the liver.
Provides a barrier that blocks toxins from the rest of the body
Absorbs water and electrolytes, forming waste that is excreted from the body
Produces antibodies for good health of the digestive tract
Contains bacterium that create fatty acids and some vitamins for additional nutritional support
Skin, Lungs and Lymphatic Systems
