- A detoxification bath helps to cleanse your immune system including allergens, infections, environmental toxins and stress. The detoxification baths relieve heat from the body and release stored toxins from fat cells into the blood. The bath is effective in decreasing and even preventing allergic symptoms, especially for those who are overloaded from chemicals.
- For detoxification bath, first take a bath or shower to remove excess oil and dirt from your skin. Scrub the skin with a rigid washcloth and then rinse thoroughly. Next, fill the tub with water as hot as you can tolerate without discomfort and deep enough to immerse your body, including your hands and arms. Stay in the bath for five minutes, and then take a brief but thorough warm shower to wash the toxins off your skin so they won’t be reabsorbed.
