A good example is the skin condition known as psoriasis. This condition is occurs because of the overreaction of the body's immune system to a specific stimulus. This in turn causes the immune system to push new skin cells to the surface at a much faster rate than should be normal. In turn, this causes an excess of skin on the surface of the body, which leads to flaky, scaly sore spots on various areas of the body.
The main focus of most modern day medication treatments for psoriasis is on trying to minimize and slow down the scaly buildup. Some psoriasis treatments even try to suppress the body's immune system to help the problem. From an herbalists point of view, this can often to further problems down the road.
When the human body's normal waste removal system becomes stagnated or clogged, it can cause toxins to leak right back into the blood stream. This in turn can cause all kinds of problems for many internal organs. This also can lead to a variety of conditions, symptoms and diseases caused by the body's frantic attempts to clean out wastes and toxins that are polluting it.
If the body is unable to eliminate these toxins by the normal method (like elimination through the colon), one of the few options left is to eliminate the toxins through the skin. At this time a thorough colon cleansing might be one of the body's last defenses. Of course, the body is not able to cleanse the colon itself. It body needs help during this stage.
Detoxifying the body is often accomplished through the use of enemas. Enemas will help quickly flush out any stagnant waste within the colon.
There are also many body detoxifying products and supplements available that focus on cleansing and "flushing out" the colon. These products are a great way to naturally cleanse the body from toxins and parasites, which also are common problems within the colon.
This addresses just a sample of one of the major problems that can occur due to the buildup of toxins within the body. Detoxifying the body can and should be done naturally by making the right dietary choices, addressing vitamin deficiencies and through the use of herbal remedies and supplements.
