There are so many things in the environment that can introduce toxins in our bodies - from the food we eat, the water we drink, alcohol, smoking, stress, drugs, traffic and work pollution. Constant exposure makes the natural detoxification process in our body sluggish and if left ignored can give way to a number of health issues. This is one of the reason why is it good to detox your body now and then help the body to get rid of toxins. The easiest way is to exercise often.

Doing exercise actually helps the lymph fluid, which is responsible for removing toxins and other harmful materials, circulate through the body. A good example is when you are doing cardio-vascular exercises. As you do exercise programmes such as aerobics, you tend to build up sweat which helps to remove toxins through the pores of the skin.
When you are losing weight through exercise, you are also able reduce the amount of fatty tissues in the body. And as these fatty tissues reduce in size, the toxins which were initially stored in fat cells are released in the body.
To bust out toxins effectively, programme your exercise for at least 40 to 60 minutes of either slow to moderate intensity or 30 to 40 minutes of high intensity sessions every now and then. Alternate the number of times you work out by having rest periods in-between for your body to recover from burn out.
There is no specific exercise that is more likely to trigger this process. The important thing is to get active physically. If you like dancing, especially the upbeat dances like zumba, belly dancing or salsa, keep moving. The exercise will not only help you relieve stress but help you detox easily.
You can still decide to brisk walk, jog, swim, play active sports or even use the cardio machines in the gym. The most important thing is to choose an activity that you enjoy most and break some sweat. Increase your workout intensity, frequency or time to boost your toxin removal process.
If you love swimming, swim in a pool that is not too chlorinated because chlorine is easily absorbed by the body therefore increasing the toxic load on your body. Swim in a pool that has been cleaned properly. If you are walking or jogging outside, make sure you avoid areas with heavy traffic. Reduce your alcohol intake while making sure you are always hydrated.
Our body has amazing capabilities to self-heal, all we have to do is to assist it by finding its own natural healing process by giving it the right diet, being physically active and abstaining from things that are not healthy.
