Dr. Aggarwal’s Health Tip of the Week

Weight Loss

In order for weight loss to happen efficiently, it is important to detoxify the body as well.

The body stores toxins in adipose (fat) cells, and has difficulty breaking down the fat cells because it would mean a release of toxins in the body. Therefore, it is important to first start detoxifying as you begin your weight loss program.

Detoxifying means making sure your bowel movements are regular, your liver is flushing out any toxins and your kidneys are eliminating any wastes well. Sweating through the skin is also an important detoxification process, since your skin is the largest organ in the body. Adrenal and thyroid function should also be supported, since these two organs keep your metabolism up and helps to burn fat.

Remember, diet and exercise are key to weight management, and these are your best starting points.

    Another doctor told me that detox is not necessary, because our bodies detoxify naturally with the foods we eat….especially the colon cleaning detox. How about going back to eating healthy and then maybe our bodies will be healthy. plus you have not indicated what we should take to do this…if you want to inform people give them full information.  what was the use of this anyway?
