Alcohol Detox and Getting to Know Your Limits

Detoxification is removing the harmful chemicals that are trapped inside your body. Every time you take a breath of air you are inhaling toxins. Every time you take a bite of food you are eating toxins. No matter what you do in this life there are toxic consequences for your body. In most cases our bodies have natural defenses that are good enough to cope.

Of course, some things we do allow more toxins into our body that others. Consuming alcohol or taking drugs or smoking cigarettes, all these things push vastly more toxins into your body than you would otherwise have. Prevention is better than cure, so don’t consume these products in the first place.

It’s an easy thing to say about smoking cigarettes. Everyone knows there are bad for you, and I don’t think anyone could give any benefits to smoking.

The same cannot be said for Alcohol Detox and drugs. Some people will say alcohol and drugs are bad for you and there is no positive benefit to using either. Other people will give you a list as long as there arms about the benefits they get for taking drugs or using alcohol.

We live in a society where it is perfectly acceptable and indeed socially essential in some areas to drink. So what is this sensible level for drinking alcohol?

If you’re a man, you are at low risk from drinking up to 21 units of alcohol per week. This drops to 14 units of alcohol a week for women. One units of alcohol is the equivalent of half a pint of beer or a single glass of wine. And, the units cannot be drank in one session, in other words, you can’t go out on a Saturday night and drink the whole lot in one go.

You should also adjust these figures if you are young because your body has not yet had time to develop properly. Also if you are elderly you should be careful.

Women should be extra careful because they have more fat spread around their bodies relative to men, so the alcohol becomes more concentrated. Women should avoid alcohol altogether during pregnancy and breastfeeding, because the alcohol is passed on to the baby.

If you feel you are exceeding these limits then you should consider going on an alcohol detox. There are many ways to do this, depending on your level of addiction.
