Detoxing is ridding the body of toxic substances. We live in a world full of toxins – some of them we are aware of including smoking and alcohol. There are also unknown toxins in the world which people aren’t aware of. For example we aren’t aware of the toxins in our toiletries. Parabens are chemical preservatives within many toiletry products and these have been linked to breast tissue tumours.

Other toxins are in pollution – living in big cities. Household products also have toxins in. These are things like your washing up liquids and detergents. All of these things have a toxic effect on the body.
