Our environments are full of pollutants and toxins that our bodies must fight off every single day. It's not just in the air around us, it's in the water supply, the chemicals and pesticides used on our foods, and in the
household cleaners and plastics we use. But what does all this really means as far as our bodies are concerned?
It means that our immune system fights overtime to keep us healthy. It means that we sometimes suffer from unexplained weight gain, odd headaches or other body-aches, as well as lethargy and brain fog. It
means we need to be vigilant about our health habits. A detoxification diet is essentially a tool that aids your body in cleaning itself out and keeping healthy. Like a tool, it should only be used at certain times - once or twice a year to be precise.
The diet will contain supplements that support your body's immune system during the cleanse. Though every person's body is different, most will end up losing a few pounds because of a detoxification diet, which is a great bonus if you're looking to lose weight.
Cleansing and detoxification encourage the body's natural internal processes, which eliminate toxins from our system so that we can feel our best. In any cleansing program, diet and exercise should be emphasized
in order to ensure optimal results.

Exercise is a major detoxifier. It sheds waste and lifts your spirits. With exercise you clean all of your internal organs at the same time. Exercise accelerates the detoxification process. As you exercise, the blood circulates throughout the body, bringing nutrients to all the organs and muscles. Exercise also helps lymph fluids circulate
the body, which removes toxins and other harmful materials. When exercising you breathe deeply and take in more oxygen, which helps all the cells to perform their jobs, including removing toxins. At the same time you exhale carbon dioxide, which is a byproduct of the various functions performed by the body. As you do aerobic exercise you build up a sweat and toxins are released through the pores of the skin. Exercising also helps you to lose weight by reducing the amount of fatty tissues in the body. As the fatty tissues grow smaller the toxins stored in fat are released into the body.
The combination of gentle moving, stretching and twisting together with deep breathing, speeds up the detox process. The lymph and blood transporting the released toxins are pumped through the body at a faster rate, improving drainage of toxins and speeding up the elimination process. The state of relaxation brought about by yoga causes the healing, restorative parasympathetic nervous system to take over from the autonomic nervous system, and the body starts to clean and heal itself.
The practice of yoga helps boost energy levels, as you take in and store abundant amounts of prana (energy) whilst holding postures and doing pranayama. The more you detox, the clearer the energy channels become, and the greater the effects of the yoga practice. Not only is this highly beneficial both short term and long term, but it also makes the detox process easier and a lot more enjoyable. You feel psychologically uplifted, and the mind is strengthened to carry on... It also gives you a clear indication of the energetic effects of yoga.
