Let’s start with why it is important that we detox our bodies. This can be easily explained through the illustration of the bucket theory. The bucket theory states that every person is born with a toxin bucket. When someone’s bucket overflows, the manifestations of toxin overload become apparent. These could include eczema, autism, infertility, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, hormonal imbalances, and food allergies. Some buckets start out empty, some part way full, others are brimming at the rim. The initial fullness of the bucket all depends on the health of the mother when the baby is born. When babies are born with buckets partly or nearly full, it really doesn’t take as much toxin exposure to overflow the bucket. This is one of the reasons we see more and more conditions affecting younger and younger people. With the amount of toxins we are exposed to today, it is really only a matter of time before it fills up, even if we started with a relatively empty bucket.
