Also known as Detoxification, it is a program of fasting and elimination of toxins to maintain body health.
Body cleansing therapy can be a part of supplementary alternative medical treatments, and proponents maintain that a cleansed, detoxified body will not only be able to heal itself from a variety of common ailments, such as acne, allergies and colitis, but will also promote general health and longevity.
Some techniques of body cleansing focus on the entire body, while others aim to detoxify specific organs, such as the colon, kidneys or liver.
A variety of body cleansing systems are available on the market today involving both internal and external cleansing methods.
Externally, body cleansing through milk baths and mud masques can remove unsightly impurities from the skin that showering alone cannot.
Internally, body cleansing systems that involve a spa-like treatment are detoxification treatments. These treatments involve colonic cleansings through the use of coffee or saline solutions injected into the rectum to flush out the colon. Such procedures are usually very time consuming and often painful.
Another option to the internal body cleansing systems is to use natural body cleansing through water showers. Using a bidet shower head attached adjacent to the toilet can serve as an alternative to abrasive toilet papers. Also a bidet attached to the toilet provides a warm, cleansing sensation that is not harsh or harmful.
