All You Need to Know About the Purification and Detoxification Methods

Detoxification Methods:- As per the science of Ayurveda, Ama is the source of all the diseases of the human body. Ama occurs due to the harmful toxins and it forms as a thick and sticky layer over the tissues. Bad eating habits, consuming harmful foods, and having an unhealthy lifestyle can cause the occurrence of these toxins.

The toxins from the body spread throughout the body via the body, and start accumulating. Once this happens over a period, the human body is affected. While some of the toxins can be cleansed by working out and through sweat, the fat-soluble toxins are hard to be released. These thus disrupt the regular bodily functions and can cause physical as well as physiological loss.
