Have you ever heard of toxins build-up? At first, when I was looking at many detox program claims, I was a bit skeptic. I mean, our body has been designed to get rid of our metabolic waste and foreign substances naturally. However, after having read the book “Alimentation” by Jean Seignalet (in French), I understood exactly what is toxins build-up and why it can occurs even if our body is naturally well equipped to get rid of toxins.
Toxins build-up happens when some waste migrates from the gut to the extra-cellular matrix (between our body cells). This happens when the gut surface is damaged. When the gut flora is strongly modified, the new bacteria can alter the gut surface and make it less efficient at blocking toxins from entering the rest of the body.
If there’s too much waste, some substances can migrate through the leaky gut and build-up before it can be eliminated.
While the physical consequences may vary from one person to another, toxins build-up can awake some genetic predispositions to specific health problems and increase the risk of autoimmune diseases.
Toxins build-up can lead to:
- Digestive problems
- Premature Ageing
How to prevent it?
By protecting your gut flora, avoiding toxins exposure and supporting your body’s natural detoxification process. All this can be done easily with a high raw, whole food based diet that excludes what we can call “modern” foods.
