If your body is out of balance and has toxic overload then you will probably suffer from excess weight, joint pain, headaches, acne, food allergies, depression, insomnia, or fatigue. Stomach fat and weight gain can be connected to toxins in the liver. This organ has 2 very significant functions: it detoxifies the body and metabolizes fat. When it becomes overworked and fatty, you start gain weight and go through health issues.
When the body is stressed, the toxins are released from fat cells, leading to cellular damage and more toxins that the liver is not able to process. Toxins can also be stored in the muscle tissue, brain tissue, nervous tissues, as well as cellular membranes.
According to Dr. Paula Baillie-Hamilton, the main cause of weight gain is connected to our own natural weight control system which becomes overloaded and poisoned with toxic chemicals that we come in contact with thorough skin care, food, cleaning products, and general environment. You may read about the link between the current fat epidemic and toxic synthetic chemicals in her book “The Detox Diet – Eliminate Chemical Calories and Enhance Your Natural Slimming System.
Toxins clog up the liver, preventing it from burning fat. A healthy and natural way to help your body get rid of harmful toxins is through detoxification. When the body eliminates all the harmful toxins, the fat which is stored to help protect the body will be also eliminated. This detox drink will help you in this process.
