Toxins are everywhere!
If you are unaware of the importance of detoxification, please listen up. Toxins are everywhere. The food we eat, the products we clean ourselves with, as well as the air we breathe all contribute to the build up of toxins in our bodies.
Without effectively eliminating those toxins from our organs, they will eventually cause havoc and we will be led down the path of sickness and disease. In a society that relies heavily on chemically laden prescription drugs, psychotherapy and surgical procedures to “heal” the sick, it is more than time to put matters into your own hands.
Our society has become very curious about detoxification. In fact, nowadays there are so many products trying to get your attention, that it can be very challenging and overwhelming to know just what is best. If you search for detoxification online today, you will find everything from detox diet plans and fasting to high priced spa treatments, herbal cleansing pills and patches.
Far Eastern cultures have been using alternative treatments for thousands of years and still do so today. Even the most technically advanced countries such as China and Japan, appreciate the effectiveness and simplicity of natural medicine. So why not try a form of therapy that is effective, yet has no side affects? However, with so many products on the market begging for a sale, where do you begin? Maybe it is time to introduce you to reflexology.
Reflexology is the practice of strategically applying pressure to areas of the feet and hands as they correspond with specific body organs. By stimulating nerves on specific areas of the feet and hands, we can stimulate blood flow and eliminate toxin buildup in the corresponding organs and systems of the body.
Reflexology is not only effective for self-healing, but has made it’s mark as an effective detoxification procedure as well. And maybe most importantly in today’s society, it is free, depending on which therapy you use and very convenient. Yes, unlike our current healthcare system, reflexology therapy is available to everyone!
If you want to go the free route, learning the simple massage techniques is all you will have to do, outside of applying it. Each part of your feet and hands relates to a body system. By applying pressure and massage to those areas, you will increase blood flow and help push toxins out of the body. One of the major benefits here is that it is relaxing and therapeutic at the same time. I use reflexology to relieve tension headaches all of the time and it works!
If you are really serious about detoxification, and you should be, I would recommend that you not only learn the reflexology techniques, but you use them on a regular basis. Use it as a first line of defense. After all, you only have one body in this lifetime, treat it with care.
