Some notes on the importance of seasonal cleanses, from a recent seminar:
What is Detoxification:
Our bodies naturally detox every day. Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through our colon, liver, kidneys, lung, lymph system and skin. In fact, internal detoxification is one of our body’s most basic automatic functions.
But in our world today, body systems and organs that were once capable of cleaning out unwanted substances are now completely overloaded; therefore many unwanted toxins, heavy metals and mucous build-up in our colon, liver, kidneys and other body systems.
Ideally, we should live in a pollution-free environment, eating healthy foods and pure water. Unfortunately, we are exposed to environmental toxins, pharmaceuticals and overly-processed foods and drinks.
We are literally exposed to 1,000 of toxic chemicals on a daily basis, so doing a cleanse on a seasonal basis assures we are giving our bodies the best chance of ridding ourselves of toxic overload.
Do I Need To Detox?
1, Do you have digestive issues?
2. Do you have problems with regular bowel elimination?

You may need to do a seasonal cleanse!
Our bodies use several methods of elimination:

Epsom salt is made up of Magnesium & Sulfate, which can help improve health in many ways; used to treat tired muscles, minor aches and sprains. It has also been used to help draw out fluids and toxins to reduce swelling and promote healing throughout the body. Plain Epsom Salt may also be ingesting to the correct dilution as a saline laxative for occasional relief.
Magnesium helps regulate the activity of more than 300 enzymes in the body and the Sulfate helps to flush out toxins and form proteins in joints and brain tissue.
