How Does the Body Detoxify Itself?
The body has four primary systems that detoxify it and eliminate waste including the circulatory system, the lymphatic system, the digestive system, and the excretory.
The circulatory system is responsible not only for pumping blood throughout the body but also for delivering oxygen to the organs and collecting waste from the body’s cells.
The digestive system, on the other hand, is responsible for processing the food we eat, delivering the nutrients throughout, and separating the waste and then delivering them to the liver.
Meanwhile, the lymphatic system collects and transports intracellular fluids to the lymph nodes. In the process, it removes anything harmful before returning the lymphatic fluid to the bloodstream.
Finally, the excretory system gets rid of wastes, eliminates useless byproducts excreted from cells, eradicates harmful chemical buildups and maintains a steady, balanced chemical concentration in the body.
Apart from these main systems, the skin, lungs, and liver also serve excretory functions as part of the body's natural detoxification process.
