Our modern world exposes us to an unnatural load of toxic substances. Many of these toxins, such as caffeine, alcohol and recreational drugs, we ingest on purpose. Other toxins are consumed unwittingly, in the form of pesticides on non-organic vegetables, or the many drugs and hormones fed to animals raised on factory farms. As soon as the body gets a chance to shed these wastes, it does so, often generating a painful headache in the process. The worst thing to do is to take a pharmaceutical painkiller, which just adds to the toxic overload. Instead, assist your body by embracing detoxification.
