It is important to cleanse your organs of elimination so that your whole body can function properly. The organs of elimination are the channels that will allow you to cleanse your body. These are the skin, lungs, intestine, liver and kidneys. Thus, the skin most often eliminates toxins. This is materialized by dermatological problems such as pimples. The lungs partly eliminate gases and other toxic substances such as malt or alcohol. The intestine allows the elimination of fibers and food waste such as those found in certain fruits or legumes. The liver eliminates fatty substances such as oils or corn. The kidneys eliminate acidic substances that can also be found in certain fruits and legumes. Therefore, it is recommended by naturopaths and traditional doctors to do a week-long detox cure once a year. There are several types of cures. Our favorite is the vegetable juice cleanse. Squeeze your vegetables at home or buy a juice extractor, and put some spirulina in it!
5- On your personal development you will focus
Banish negativity from your life and focus on your goals! You do not have any ? Create some! We have not all arrived on earth to follow the same path. Also, your fate is in your hands. It is important to realize yourself, because it is one of the main factors of good health.
