Our body is able to detoxify itself thanks to its emunctories. However, overloading them during the festivities, winter fatigue or taking medication can cause them to slow down. These emunctories are the organs capable of eliminating waste products from our body. There are five of them: liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs and skin.
The liver is the most important emunctory. In addition to its role of filtration and elimination of waste, like other emunctories, it is able when it functions well to neutralize toxic substances. The kidneys eliminate waste by filtering the blood and diluting it in the urine. Their proper functioning will ensure a sufficient quantity of urine and a limited concentration of waste products in the blood.
