It has become a common feature for couples and families to go on a detox holidays or a yoga retreat for their vacation. Many destinations which offer comprehensive detox packages have sprung up all over the world.
The inherent natural systems of the body’s organs are responsible for cleansing the body of the various toxic buildups, but the immense bombardment of polluting factors from the environment makes it unable to fulfill this function effectively. Hence, the liver, kidneys, colon and the lymphatic glands are burdened with toxic accumulations and a detox facilitates the cleansing of each, individually.
