Doctors talked about the unpleasant side effects of this trendy way to detoxify the body. Many people resort to detox diets because they consider it not only fashionable, but also healthy for losing weight and removing undefined toxins from the body. However, experts warn that the liver, kidneys and other organs of our body do a great job at this task, and they don't need any additional help. Detox diets are not only ineffective but also hazardous to health. And none of them at all provide the benefits that advocates of this type of nutrition say. The fact is that every part of our body is cleansed of toxins on its own. This applies to the liver, gastrointestinal system, as well as the kidneys. For example, the gastrointestinal system filters waste products, which is why there is no need to cleanse the intestines with regular enemas or any other technique. When food passes through the digestive tract, the nutrients are absorbed by the upper intestine. Then the unnecessary part of the food passes on and is removed from the body through feces. People think that by flushing the intestines, they are removing some harmful toxins. But if something enters the rectum, then it should go out by itself, and there is no need to speed up this process. The kidneys filter toxins from the blood, saturate them with urine, which subsequently leaves the body. The liver detoxifies by altering the chemical nature of many toxins, allowing the body to get rid of them more quickly. If the kidneys can't do their job, then we need hemodialysis, not apple cider vinegar and some smoothies. Even the lungs are equipped to remove toxins. On inhalation, they take in air, and together with exhalation they release what they do not need, that is, carbon dioxide, which is toxic to us. The only benefit of detoxification is that it can be the start of a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods.
