The detoxification circuit consists of the immune system, interstitium, and the liver. Together, they get rid of excessive, unwanted, reactive metabolites that come from stress. Remember that stress can be physical or emotional. It represents an exertion on the body that requires energy expenditure to normalize. When this circuit is working well along with other circuits, stress is automatically resolved in the background without you knowing it.
However, if there is detoxification circuit dysfunction (and it is not functioning as it is supposed to be), clinical symptoms can be devastating.
Problems usually come when foreign or synesthetic compounds, such as pesticides, pollutants, medications, and herbs, are introduced in excess. The body does not have a built-in detoxification mechanism robust enough to do the job completely, especially when it is weak. Metabolites may not be removed properly or quickly enough. Some of these metabolites are not inert but active. Active metabolites are also called reactive metabolites because they react with other things in the body and can become toxic. In most cases, the build-up of chemically reactive metabolites is temporary, and the body gets rid of them after multiple passes through the system. In some cases, such as with toxic metals like mercury, the toxin never leaves the body on its own.
