Elim-Tox and Elim-Tox-O: Natural Detox Remedies

Date Posted:20 April 2011 

If you seem to be particularly susceptible to flu, colds, coughs and allergies, you may have excessive toxins in your body. Toxins can make you feel constantly tired, particularly after meals, and lacking in appetite and energy. Many people put this down to having eaten too much, eating the wrong types of food, or not exercising enough. While these are certainly important factors, it may be that your body is simply in need of a thorough spring cleaning with natural detox remedies.

In Ayurvedic medicine, great importance is placed on the seasons and how they affect both body and mind. In Ayurveda, spring is known as the Kapha season, because the cool, wet weather mirrors the moist, cool Kapha dosha qualities that are in abundance during this time of year. The cleansing of the human body during this time is supported by nature, because the sweet, sticky "comfort" food that people turn to during the winter months is not always properly digested. As a result, the Ama (sticky toxins) build up. As cold winter is replaced with the warmer spring, the Ama begin to melt, and the body does not have a way to get rid of it. A spring detox is important to unblock the shrotas—the microcirculatory channels of the body—to prevent health problems and a general feeling of being unwell. Some of the common symptoms of too many toxins include painful headaches, dizzy spells, shaking limbs, muscle cramps and a furry tongue. It is common to notice dullness in your skin and a tendency to break out in spots or dry patches.

Natural detox remedies can help to detox and cleanse the vital organs, creating an altogether healthier, more energised self. Elim-Tox and Elim-Tox-O both help to improve digestive function, cleanse the liver and the blood, and disperse toxins from the colon and intestines. They can be taken on a daily basis; Elim-Tox is recommended for a whole month, immediately after each season change. It is more powerful than Elim-Tox-O, however, and can in some cases stimulate the liver, particularly in those people who have dominant Pitta dosha or eat a diet high in Pitta (strong, spicy, hot foods). For these people, Elim-Tox-O is formulated to pacify Pitta imbalances even as it detoxifies the body.
