How To Help Your Body Detoxify and Repair Itself
- The biological process known as autophagy plays a key role in your body’s ability to detoxify, repair, and regenerate itself
- By activating your body’s autophagy process, you dampen inflammation, slow down the aging process, and optimize biological function
- Three ways to do that are eating a high-fat, low high-fiber carb diet, intermittently fasting, and getting regular exercise, especially high intensity exercise
While there are many different ways to rid your body of accumulated toxins, from detoxifying foods and chemical and/or natural detox agents to saunas, a biological process known as “autophagy” plays a key role.
The term autophagy means “self-eating”, and refers to the processes by which your body cleans out various debris, including toxins, and recycles damaged cell components.
The video below provides a more in-depth biochemical review of the autophagy processes involved in health and disease:
