Sweating is good for you! How it ever became popular to market stopping one of the most vital detoxification systems our body has is a mystery to me, and frankly, quite absurd! Sweating is our body’s natural way of eliminating harmful toxins that build up over time. This is important for proper immune function and preventing diseases caused by toxic overload. By trying to prevent this much-needed cleansing process, we are causing our bodies much more harm than good.
