Cleansing and Yoga

Even modern science now believes that disease, decay and degeneration are due to the presence of free radicals in the body. But how are the free radicals created?

Free radicals develop due to the accumulation of toxins in the body. Toxins, themselves, are a product of our lifestyle, our diet, the environment and our emotional patterns.

With our unregulated and undisciplined lifestyle, the kind of food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and our emotional pulls and pressures, certain hormones are secreted that have a tendency to leave behind toxins.
