So, how do you know that you need to be detoxified? Well, it’s a safe bet, that if you live in an industrialized society, you do.
Of course, prevention and clean living is the first resort, but what if the damage is already done, and the body is stuffed with noxious gunk? there is still something you can do. You can detoxify.
Alas, the Ayurvedic concept of detoxification is a bit hard to define in medical terms. The traditional concept is metaphorical, not a well-defined process of physiology. The signs of a need to detoxify are well known, the practical process of “detoxification” is well understood, we know when it has been accomplished, because the signs go away, people feel a lot better after being “detoxified”, and on the whole clinical and laboratory sign of disease improve with the process.
