What is Detoxification and why should you care?
Detoxification, according to Wikipedia, is the physiological or medicinal removal of toxic substances from a living organism, including the human body, which is mainly carried out by the liver.
We live in a world where we are exposed to toxins on a daily basis.
Most of the food we eat has been grown with pesticides, injected with hormones, or contains chemicals (unless we consume largely organic produce).
The water we drink and the air we breathe has become more toxic as pollution has increased all around us.
Chemicals found in detergents, shampoos, deodorants, and other personal care products can be hazardous.
Our bodies naturally detox daily to remove ‘unwanted materials and toxins.’ The kidneys, skin, lungs, and lymphatic system are all involved in detoxifying our bodies of harmful byproducts. The liver, however, plays the most important role. But only when these organs are in good health are they able to effectively eliminate any unwanted substances.
With that being said, it’s clear that detoxification is a vital function. But are detox practices really effective?
The Myth of the Detox Diet
Common detox diets, or undergoing a detox cleanse, are one of the most popular means of self-administered detoxification. However, these practices rarely identify the specific toxins they seek to eliminate or the mechanism by which they ostensibly do so. There is also no evidence to support the use of these diets for toxin eradication.
Marketing programs taut the benefits of eliminating alleged toxins that are responsible for a range of symptoms, including headache, bloating, joint pain, fatigue and even depression and anxiety. You’ll find detox juices, detox teas and specific detox from alcohol programs all available in retail stores, at spas or over the internet.
There’s an array of products and diets sold under the label of detox diets to restore energy and even more for weight loss. There are risks associated with extreme fasting and calorie restriction and much of the weight lost through this method often resumes with normal eating habits.
PEMF Therapy for Detoxification
PEMF Therapy (or Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy), is different. It’s not a detox diet. It supports the body to detox on a cellular level.
Pulsating Magnetic Fields stimulate the mitochondria and increase the cells’ oxygen-carrying capacity. This results in natural detoxification and is a significant advantage of using PEMF therapy on a regular basis.
PEMF helps the cells in the body to regenerate and detox of its own accord more efficiently.
How does PEMF work for detoxification?
The liver is the body’s natural detoxifier, cleansing it of toxins and producing bile to aid in digestion. A healthy liver can detoxify almost everything that a person comes into contact with.
So when the liver is not healthy, the body is unable to filter out toxic substances effectively.
PEMF can improve the liver, and not just that but also the bowel, kidney, and skin function by energising these elimination organs, allowing the body to achieve and maintain internal cleanliness.
Aside from improving liver function, PEMF aids in the opening of all four major detoxification pathways: 1- the Lungs – CO2, 2- the Skin – we lose several pounds of waste every day, 3- the Kidneys, and 4- the Colon – removes blocks and stimulates peristalsis.
PEMF also improves lymphatic circulation, which is important because one of the lymph’s functions is to act as the body’s sewage system.
Can PEMF help with detox for weight loss?
Using detox diets to lose weight is common, but it is not always healthy. According to the UK’s National Health System, ‘The concept of detox diets is irrational and unscientific’ while PEMF therapy, according to Dr. Stephen Stokes DC, works by ‘shaking the cell’ to remove harmful toxins. We rely on our cells to perform and function properly throughout our bodies.
PEMF therapy repairs and restores cells, which play an important role in detoxification.
Is there anything PEMF can’t do?
PEMF uses pulsed electromagnetic frequencies and intensities to provide a wide range of health benefits and improvements, including detoxification.
PEMF is also known for the following benefits:
- Immunity Strengthening
- Pain Relief
- Sleep Enhancement
- Stress, Depression & Anxiety Reduction
- Muscle Recovery
- Increasing body alkalinity
It is a non-invasive treatment that has been shown to be effective in both humans and animals.
PEMF therapy improves the body’s self-healing and self-regulating abilities. It is one of the safest and most effective non-invasive therapies available today for treating a wide range of conditions, but it is important to note that is not curative by any means.
To be clear, using PEMF will not cure the underlying condition. It is used in an energetic and fundamental sense to provide more energy to the body so that it can heal itself by achieving homoeostasis.
