Can Your Body Detox By Exercising?

Sometimes our bodies can be so weighed down with toxins,we just need to hit the re-set button. That's when you need a body detox. It's a way for the body to naturally cleanse itself by eliminating harmful toxins, which in turn allows the vital organs to rest and work effectively again. And because we all want to feel our best, we often find ourselves constantly searching for the perfect 'detoxification' process.

The most natural and easiest way to eliminate toxins from the body is through sweat and exercise. Our bodies use the liver, kidneys and our pores to get rid of by-products that we can't use. Primarily, we sweat in order to regulate our body temperature, and we generally release water, as well as small amounts of sodium, lactate, urea, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper, iron and copper to name a few.

This method of detoxification doesn't work overnight and is definitely not a quick-fix solution. Exercise allows the body to detoxify itself through perspiration; however, this occurs in extremely small doses. The best way to rid the body of toxins is to exercise then relax for 20-30 minutes in a sauna afterwards. Using a sauna to increase the body's need to sweat not only lowers blood pressure, but also decreases stress levels and reduces body weight.

Sauna therapy has been used for centuries to relieve joint pain, asthma and other common ailments. More recently, hot-room yoga classes have become extremely popular because the body is working and releasing toxins, while the muscles still feel relaxed and not over-loaded.

If you're new to sauna therapy, it's important to take it easy at first. Drink lots of fluids, so that you don't become light-headed. Personally, I feel amazing after a gym & sauna session. There are so many short-term and long-term benefits, I love the fact that my skin looks better and my body feels lighter. And that's always a good thing.
