Our bodies detox naturally every day through our organs – the colon, lungs, liver, kidneys, lymphatic systems and skin. But as the world population grows the number of pollutants in our environment and diets has dramatically increased. Our foods now contain traces of the chemical fertilizers used to grow them and the hormones that increase the yield in animal protein products.
Then, too, our diets contain many more saturated fats and trans fats than those of our parents, and tend to rely on stimulants such as caffeine and alcohol as well. So the organs that were once capable of ridding our bodies of toxins by themselves are now overburdened. This means our tissues store the toxins that the organs cannot eliminate. The body surrounds these toxins with mucous and fat to keep them from damaging the nearby tissues.
These fat- and mucous-wrapped toxins can become a burden to the body, often causing considerable weight gain, compromising our immune systems, and slowing organ function. A period of rest for the body that features Kamalaya’s all-natural detox cuisine and colon hydrotherapy is the perfect way to reset your body’s self-cleansing properties and revitalize yourself.
