Awareness of the importance of fitness and good health is improving amongst the general public. People are becoming more aware of the habits and lifestyle choices that they have to change in order to maintain optimum health. While exercise and watching one’s diet are important, health-conscious people are also becoming increasingly aware of the importance of detoxification. Though the body has its own methods of eliminating toxins and waste products, detoxification aims to enhance the body’s own methods of self-purification.
The Need For Detoxification
Western medicine does not recommend that a person would need any kind of extra detoxification since the human body functions to eliminate toxins naturally through the liver, kidneys, skin, lungs and digestive system. However, Western medicine also agrees that certain good habits can enhance the body’s toxin elimination efficiency. The recommendations of Western medicine with regard to toxins and maintaining the body’s natural detoxifying abilities are:
- Drink Enough Water
Water has a myriad of different functions to keep the human body functioning optimally. One of these functions is the elimination of toxins and waste products through sweat, breathing and urination. Water is essential for these functions.
- Get Enough Sleep
When a person is asleep the brain is able to naturally detoxify and refresh itself. Poor or insufficient sleep is an underlying factor that contributes to poor health and may trigger multiple ailments
- Limit Alcohol Intake
Most of the alcohol consumed is metabolised by the liver into acetaldehyde that is harmful and cancer-causing. However, the liver converts this into acetate that then gets eliminated from the body. Excessive intake of alcohol causes the buildup of fat in the liver as well as damage by scarring the liver tissues and inflammation, thereby reducing the efficiency and detoxifying abilities of the liver. So, keeping one’s liver at optimum health ensures that the body’s natural detoxifying system works well. Avoiding excessive alcohol intake is one way to avoid straining and damaging the liver.
- Eat A Good Healthy Diet
A diet that is high in sugars and processed foods put a strain on the body and cause weight problems as well as diabetes. High sugar intake also causes fatty liver. Eating food that is rich in natural antioxidants protects the body from damage and oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
The digestive system is a very important part of the toxin elimination system of the body. An imbalance of the good bacteria in the intestines may weaken the immune system and may lead to poor elimination of waste from the body. To maintain optimum gut health, a healthy intake of probiotics is advised to keep the good bacteria functional.
Excessive intake of salt causes the body to retain more water. This is compounded when there is an insufficient intake of water causing the body to produce less urine thereby not eliminating toxins. So, one must reduce the intake of salt and increase the water intake so that there is enough elimination of urine and toxins with it.
- Exercise And Be Active
Regular exercise helps the body to maintain optimum health and body weight. It also helps combat many diseases and health problems by increasing circulation and reducing inflammation.
Ayurveda’s View On Detoxification
Ayurveda considers Ama and Amavisha as the primary toxins in the body. Ama is defined by the Ayurvedic system as the undesirable waste product that is formed when the digestive process is inefficient or when the food that is ingested is unhealthy or hard to digest. The type and quality of a person’s digestion depend on the Dosha type of their body. A person with Pitta Dosha would be able to digest rich foods as well as large quantities of food more easily. However, a person with Kapha Dosha has weak digestion ability and eating unhealthy food may lead to improper digestion and the formation of Ama. For a person with Vata Dosha, the digestion abilities fluctuate and is especially sensitive to seasonal changes. Ayurveda acknowledges that stress also has a negative impact on the digestive ability.
Ama is formed when there is a lack of balanced diet, the seasons as well as the time and frequency of meals. This can be a temporary phase. However, stressing one’s digestion over extended periods of time can cause Dosha imbalance as well as the conversion of the accumulated Ama into the more dangerous Amavisha that is a root cause of several diseases.
Ayurveda recommends that the most important step in keeping the body free of toxins is to maintain good digestion. One must ensure that the Agni or the digestive fire is at its optimum and also maintain an intake of food that is suited to the person’s body type as well as the season. One must maintain a proper schedule and a healthy lifestyle with adequate exercise and sleep. One should reduce stress and practice habits that reduce stress.
Ayurveda also prescribes certain formulations that are made from ingredients that help enhance the body’s waste eliminating systems and balance the Doshas. These ingredients also serve as immunomodulators in facilitating optimum removal of toxins and the prevention of the formation of Ama naturally strengthens the body’s immunity.
