3 Key Herbs in Detox Teas to Promote the Cleansing Process
The body has its own system for cleansing and eliminating toxins on a daily basis. However with the change in the way we process our foods, the additives and chemical used, the increased pollution and pills, medications and drugs we put in our systems, its no wonder why our liver may need some extra help. If our bodies become overloaded, especially with chemicals, toxins and pollutants then our excretory system, which includes our kidneys, liver, and lungs can slow down or become backed up. If these toxins remain in our body then they can be reabsorbed which can cause harm. A detox tea made of beneficial herbs can cleanse your body and stimulate the elimination process.
Herbs have been used for thousands of years in cultures all over the world. Their benefits are seen in helping conditions ranging from constipation to stress to cancer. The right kind of herbs in the right combination can target the problem and strengthen the immune system to prevent further damage or reoccurrence. A detox tea is good for all types of liver ailments i.e. Stagnation or deficiency. It will stimulate liver function by protecting and strengthening liver cells. Detox tea also acts as a skin cleanser through liver cleansing, bile stimulant to increase fat digestion and protein synthesis, inflammation reducer by breaking down cortisone and a strong blood cleanser. Detox tea is all natural, caffeine free and very mild on the body. There are no known side effects and you should not experience any harsh effects while your body adjusts to the cleansing process. It is important to continue with regular elimination of stool and urination during times of detox as this will assist in ridding the body of toxic substances.
There are three primary herbs used in detox teas: Echinacea, fenugreek and ginger. Each has its own properties for promoting the cleansing process, but in combination they have a whole body effect. Echinacea is one of the best cleansers for the lymphatic system. However it is also known for fighting both bacterial and viral infections. Fenugreek helps to expel toxins through the lymphatic system. It promotes cleansing through the lungs by helping to expel mucus and phlegm from the bronchial tubes and sinuses. Ginger helps to cleanse the bowels and kidneys. It also promotes cleansing by increasing the bodies temperature to require perspiration. It opens up the pores to expel bacteria and toxins through the skin. In combination these herbs have a powerful effect on the body to help detox your whole body.
