What You Need to Know and How to Avoid the Pitfalls
1. Why Should You Learn How to Detox? 
Learning how to detox your body is one simple skill you can learn that can improve your health in major ways, including:   
  • decreasing puffiness, 
  • clearing of brain fog, 
  • diminishing achiness in joints, 
  • increased vitality, 
  • clearer skin, 
  • better resistance to colds, flu, and infections, 
  • reduction in sluggish colon, 
  • reduced stiffness on awakening, 
  • lower irritability, 
  • declining cholesterol levels, 
  • less gas and bloating,  
  • fewer sensitivities to allergens, and 
  • reduction in weight.  
2. What is DETOXING do - why do you need it? 
 All these seemingly magical results are obtained by putting your body into its discharge mode. This is the process through which your body rids itself of accumulations of all descriptions: mucus, congestion, extra fats, toxins, chemicals and decaying matter.  Just as your household has a need for you to collect up, take out, carry away  and dispose of the garbage, so your body needs regular times to do the same.
3. What are the consequences of failing to DETOX?
If you don't arrange times for your body to discharge, your inner garbage collects in your cells, creating stiffness and heaviness, overloading your immune system's ability to keep things clean.  
Then, when you least expect it, at some inconvenient time, your body succumbs to the attack of all these collected free radicals and decides to go into discharge mode anyway.  
Instead of enjoying that Holiday party you'd been looking forward to, that vacation for which you paid so dearly, you spend your time in bed.  'I have a cold," you say, or, "I have the flu - there is a lot of it going around."  
But really, your body has determined that, like it or not, cleaning your internal house takes precedence over any other agenda.  "It can't be helped," you might think.  But that would be untrue because you can take charge of the process, carrying it out in smaller increments that don't cause symptoms.
4. How does a regular DETOX schedule help prevent colds and the flu? 

Regular detoxing is how you support your body to keep up with it's healthy need to discharge, and that means you're lowering the likelihood that you'll be sideswiped by unwelcome visits of pain and achiness, fatigue, swollen joints and congestion.
And the less you keep up with it, the more likely you'll be knocked down when "the flu's going around."  Why?  Because you have allowed your body to become a walking environment where bugs love to grow and multiply. 
After all, the role of 'bugs' in the ecological system of the world is to prepare things to return to the earth.  And in allowing your body to become toxic, you have become the proverbial living, breathing swamp: warm, moist, dark, and full of rich, decaying matter to feed on. 
"Well," you might say, "my immune system should take care of this."  And if your immune system could talk, it would likely reply, "I've been doing my best, and I can only do so much. Give me a break!" 
Detoxing via the body's discharge channels is the way your immune system gets that break.
