Why Detox With Herbs?

Top 7 Natural Detox Herbs
Top 7 Natural Detox Herbs

Use natural detox herbs along with eating plant life to naturally support the health of organs in the body. This will supply the body with a natural and balanced concentration of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and phytonutrients that help to remove toxins from the body and strengthen the immune system. When we eat a lot of meat, dairy, and chemically processed foods, and take in toxins through the water we drink and the air we breath, we cause a toxic buildup in the body that compromises our immune system and we combat this buildup with natural detox herbs.

This unbalance of nutrients, toxins, and chemically altered foods cause havoc in our bodies which are geared to accept the natural balance of nutrients found in plant life. This balance strengthens the body and immune system and can compensate for the consumption of meat in small amounts, and toxins in our environment.

The problem is many of us eat very little plant life (vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes, and alkaline grains) and eat too much meat, dairy, and processed foods which make it necessary to use detox herbs to get a deep lasting cleanse. Eating a plant based diet in itself is a natural detox because it limits the amount of toxins introduced into the body and it will detox you up until a point, overtime.

There are some natural herbs for detoxification that are not part of the normal the diet and these detox herbs are concentrated to specifically address detoxification of our organs. Even with a normal plant based diet, cleansing will only be so deep when dealing with a body that has accumulated a lot of toxins, and a natural herbal cleansing detox will greatly help the cause.

Burdock Root – Detox Herb

Burdock root contains polyacetylene, an organic compound believed to give burdock root its antibacterial and antifungal properties. Burdock root is a detox herb used to support and clean the liver and gall bladder, and to treat a variety skin diseases such as abscesses, acne, carbuncles, psoriasis and eczema, through increasing circulation to the skin where the compounds in the root help to detoxify the epidermal tissues.

Burdock root’s inulin compound supports probiotic growth in the colon, and studies have confirmed that burdock root is a natural herbal cleanse detox.

Sarsaparilla is a detox herb and has anti-inflammatory properties to treat the liver, diaphoretic properties and binds with toxins which are removed from the body through sweating, and is used to to treat skin conditions such abscesses, acne, boils, and psoriasis.

Dandelion root increases bile production to break down fats and remove cholesterol from the body.

Mullein And Bromelain & Papain

I used these detox herbs together to clean my small intestine. Bromelain & Papain are vegetable digestive enzymes from pineapple and papaya. I used these herbs to dissolve proteins stuck in the mucoid layer lining my small intestine’s wall. I used mullein to then remove the mucoid lining to allow for better transport of nutrients from the small intestine into the bloodstream.

Elderberry is a detox herb because it removes mucus in the body. Excess mucus and a high acidic pH level support disease in the body. Traditionally, elderberries have been used to fight the flu and colds and now scientific research has indicated that its antiviral and antioxidants properties are the reason for its effectiveness. Research has shown that elderberry was effective against flu infections like H1N1 by binding to the virus and blocking it from entering host cells.

Cilantro is a detox herb that helps the body rid itself of dangerous toxic metals that accumulate in organ tissues.

Black Walnut & Wormwood are detox herbs but they are not herbal detoxifiers that remove toxins from the body as they other detox herbs do. They are detox herbs because they kill parasites that create toxins in the body.
