Detox

It is the need of today’s individual to remain in perfect appealing shape. The mindset of an individual is inclining more towards his appearance rather than his health. The people with wide waist dimensions are laughed at and those with thin and perfect features are appreciated. This social pressure has made an individual fall pray to Detox. 

Detox is a kind of dieting. Detox can be defined as a “dietary regime” that promises to remove all the excessive fats and is said to create wonders in the appearance of the person following this Detox regime. However, experts do not agree to this. It has been found out that Detox can make an adverse impact on the physical health of an individual leading to “muscle break down” and the body is restrained from the useful and needed nutrients for its proper growth and functioning. This decreases the immunity power of an individual and makes him susceptible to “various infections and inflammation”.  

Any extreme habit is always fatal, whether it is related to drugs or the food-intake or dieting. The teens and adolescent are more prone to Detox due to the social pressure, but there is no such age limit. To avoid your child from practicing Detox, it is very important to induce self-confidence in your sibling. Timely help is necessary. There are various treatment centers that can help an individual keep away from such practice but it’s up to an individual to love himself and not feel inferiority complex of their own physic.
