How many times have you gone out to dinner and drank a little too much? Unfortunately, this happens to the best of us. Many of us may only have this happen a couple of times a year, however, many individuals may do this once a week or more. They're not drinking everyday and they don't go too far overboard with alcohol and they don't consider themselves to have a problem with alcohol. However, alcohol does in fact harm the body regardless of how many times each month you drink. The more you drink, the more you damage the organs in your body. Even if you don't drink that much, cleansing the body of toxins should be done on a regular basis.
The fact is if you drink alcohol, the cells in your body are trying to fight off the toxins from the alcohol. Often, after only drinking session, the liver cells can become swollen from an overload of fat globules and water. This “fatty liver”, as it is called, can also be the result of other things, such as diabetes, obesity, and there are certain drugs that will induce this condition. If you do have a fatty liver caused by alcohol consumption, it is reversible when you discontinue using alcohol. While there are generally no physical signs that one has a fatty liver, it can be diagnosed with blood tests. Cleansing the body of toxins will help your liver to function more efficiently and help you to reverse the fatty liver condition.
Your kidneys can also not function properly when you consume alcohol. The kidneys help to regulate the fluids and the electrolytes in your body and help filter out waste that is in your body. As alcohol induces urination within a short time, the body may become dehydrated and the kidneys will not be able to perform their functions properly in regulating the electrolytes. While the kidneys are not “directly” damaged by a moderate amount of alcohol once in awhile, it will stop them from functioning properly while drinking. Heavy drinking can lead to kidney failure. Cleansing the body will help your kidneys to be able to properly filter out the waste that has accumulated in your body from drinking alcohol.
Cleansing the body will also help you to increase the functioning of your intestines. Alcohol, even a moderate mount, can prevent the intestines from absorbing and breaking down nutrients. As the intestines eliminate waste from the body and absorb necessary nutrients, it is very important that your intestines are doing their job efficiently and effectively.
The fact is while moderate drinking does not necessarily “damage” any of your organs, it can prevent them from functioning properly. Cleansing the body should be a regular part of your life if you consume any alcohol, even a moderate amount. When cleansing the body, you can start with the colon and move on to a kidney cleanse and liver cleanse. By cleansing the body, you will make sure your body is functioning at top performance.
