In our industrialized world, food is highly processed and many compromises are made which can lead to health problems. Overeating and not following strict diet guidelines can further aggravate the situation. At times this can result in poor elimination or stagnation in the system. This can result in an overload of the system. Proper and regular elimination is a natural process to rid the system of unwanted waste and toxins. This buildup can be harmful and may show up as different ailments. Cleansing is an ancient method of correcting an overloaded system. One way to cleanse is to drink plenty of fresh, clean water. Another is the use of herbs and spices.
