Why should you be concerned?
Years of toxic buildup—from exposure to heavy metals, pesticides, alcohol, pharmaceuticals, etc.—can seriously damage your health. This can lower your resistance to stress and compromise your natural ability to repair your body.
How likely is this?

According to Dr. Nan Kathryn Fuchs—a nutritional authority with a thriving private practice in Sebastopol, California—your individual level of toxicity depends on several factors including your age, your lifestyle, and your habits.
Why is detoxifying the body so important?
Toxins are unvited guests who create stress in your body. Chronic stress leads to inflammation, the cause of many diseases.
Elimination of toxins allows your organs to work more efficiently, especially the lymphatic system & skin. As a benefit your immune system is strengthened as well and naturally!
NOTE: When detoxing, you may experience symptoms as the toxins are expelled from your body. This is perfectly normal and is not a sign that you’re getting sicker. This is often connected to detoxing too fast.
"Low and slow" has become a slogan regarding BioMat use. Used on the lowest setting for short duration allows the body a gradual adaptation to detoxification and oftentimes prevents detox symptoms. The more inflammation in the body = the more toxins present therefore the slower the increase in heat settings and duration on the BioMat.
Common Detox Symptoms
Detox can create a number of symptoms in your body as your body goes through the process of purifying itself and eliminating toxins. Some common and temporary detox symptoms include:

Plan on drinking clean pure water to help flush out the toxins. Many people have also found that adding Detoxi Bamboo salt to their water further assists in the detoxification process.
