This has a dramatic affect on our health and well-being.
Our every second our bodies are detoxifying, or trying their best to, for example our breath, but due to the massive amount of toxins we come in contact with daily in this modern world – through our air supply, water supply, the food we eat – especially processed foods – our body can’t keep up with the toxin load that gets thrown at it. And it definitely can’t detoxify efficiently with out some help!
