Post-Holiday Detox Plan

We are exposed to dangerous pollutants, synthetic medications, chemicals, processed foods, alcohol, diseases, and so on in today's world. This may not appear to be a serious threat, but the truth is that toxins from these sources can seriously harm our health. Even if the body eventually adapts to the exposure, this does not indicate the toxins have left our bodies. Toxic substances gradually build up in our bodies over time, causing injuries. If this is the scenario, it is our responsibility to remove the toxins and keep the body healthy.

The foreign substances (referred to as antigens) can be microbes such as bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi or harmful environmental contaminants like heavy metals, allergens etc. Once the body recognizes the antigens, the immune system takes appropriate action by generating an immune response to either eliminate or neutralize the antigens.Interestingly, the immune system is subdivided into two categories based on the function: innate and adaptive immunity. It is believed that both types are closely integrated and work together to trigger an immune response.
