The Top 7 Acupressure Points for Total Detoxification

Recurrent illnesses and chronic diseases, such as arthritis and joint pain, are often the cause of toxic overload in the body. Pollution, food additives, and processed foods all contribute to an increase in the level of toxins found within our bodies. This can lower our bodies' defense mechanisms, resulting in a number of aches and pains, lethargy, and even fever. There are quite a few ways to detoxify your body, but reflexology is thought by many to be one of the best. Below, you'll find 7 simple reflexology points to help detox your body, and allow you to live a healthier and happier life.
