Elimination of these toxic substances from the body is called detoxification. The essential organs in our body that detoxifies our bloodstream are the lungs, kidney, liver and skin. Lungs detoxify by exhaling the carbon dioxide from deoxygenated blood and supplying pure oxygenated blood to the heart, liver breaks down the complex compounds into smaller fractions and these are given out by the kidney in form of urine and the skin in form of sweat.

Acupuncture detoxification, chelating and detox diet are used for normal essential detoxification whereas dialysis and detoxes are used when there is a serious need and the body cannot eliminate the toxins on its own.
