Body Detox – What Is Detoxing and What To Expect

Doing a body detox is a way to improve your health and wellness. Detoxing is a way to get rid of bad toxins in your body. This alone will raise your energy level by eliminating these toxins that make you feel sluggish and tired. Doing a detox will give you energy and at the same time help you lose weight.

There are two types of toxins: controllable and uncontrollable. The controllable ones come from what you take in via food, drinks, etc.. You can reduce your intake of these toxins by a body detox. Uncontrollable ones are from things such as the air you breath and what environment you subject your body to like bath water.

You will find all kinds of diets and articles all over the internet about detoxing. Some claiming to complete the process in 2 days and some claiming to within 10 days. However, they are all very similar. The length of time to detox depends on the level of toxins in your body and how strict you stay to the process.

The basis to detoxing your body is living and eating healthy also known as cleansing and refreshing. Refreshing refers to the process of restoring the electrolytes and other nutrients your body loses during the cleansing process. Eating healthy refers to eating organic, nutrient-dense, and minimally processed foods. You should eat less animal protein and eat more alkaline with fresh vegetables. Eliminate alcohol, sugar, processed foods, sodas, and trans fat. All of these items puts harmful waste in your body.

Sleep is another important process to detox. Sleep at least 7 to 8 hours a night. Sleeping is a way to allow your body to rest and heal. It allows your body to focus more on the detoxification process.

You should drink lots of water. This helps your kidneys flush toxins out of your body. At the same time it keeps you hydrated and it will also help suppress your appetite. Purified water is better than regular tap water.

Exercise is also another important part of. This helps with your circulation and breathing. It will also help your skin to sweat and stretch. Exercising will also help with weight loss.

Taking a detox bath can also help with the process. Put 2 cups of Epson salt and a half a cup of baking soda in your bath water. Some people add their favorite essential oils too.

Hope this helps and good luck with your detoxing process.

Why Aren’t You Paying Attention to Your Colon?

Most of us didn’t learn a doggone thing in school that was in-sync with everyday living, especially when it comes to life and health. And you ask why? It’s because it just wasn’t taught. Period.

Somewhere, a long time ago, some NON-visionary individual implemented a lifetime of subjects, that MOST people NEVER use, threw them into dull, un-imaginary classes, and called it school (Sidenote: We actually ONLY needed a few of these subjects, really).

In someone’s estimation, this was WAY more significant than teaching us ‘how to think by using our OWN creative intelligence and how to take proper care of our bodies. So, here we are just starting to “catch on” to what’s REALLY important!

I said ALL OF THAT, to say this, “Who ever informed you how important it really Is to keep your colon clean and protected from disease?” And I already know the answer. NOBODY!

Our colons are basically the most important part of our entire digestive system. This is where DISEASE BEGINS, if it isn’t taken care of properly.

According to Health Line, your colon is responsible for absorbing the body’s nutrients and minerals, and absorbing the body’s water. It also eliminates the waste. In other words, the colon takes out the body’s garbage.

Your digestive system is your colon, your mouth, your esophagus, your stomach, and your small and large intestine. They’re all connected.

If any part of your digestive system doesn’t work properly, it means HUGE problems for you, all the way from CONSTIPATION through DIARRHEA, and everything in between.

Most people don’t ‘give a hoot’ about their colons, until they get sick. However, according to Health Line, again, colon issues can include Leaky Gut Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chron’s Disease, Diverticulitis, Ulcers and Colon Cancer, to name a few. People who already have some of these diseases could give you an earful of what they go through everyday. You don’t have to let this be you!

So, if you have any colon or digestive issues, listen up! Now’s your time to be educated and to be more aware of keeping your colon and digestive system safe. It’s your INTERNAL INSURANCE POLICY that will keep you out of doctor’s offices and hospitals for years to come.

GREAT COLON STORY FROM THE COLON WHISPERER:

Why is the colon so important? by Toni Schumacher Lund

One day the body got together and decided to have a board meeting. Here’s what went on behind closed doors. There was intense discussion to determine:

WHO WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE BODY.

The BRAIN was the first to speak. “Without me, nothing would be accomplished.”

Then the HEART spoke up. “Without me, pumping blood to your brain you could not function.”

The ARMS laughed. “You’re both wrong, without me to put food in the mouth, nothing would work.”

The LEGS quickly added. “Without me you couldn’t get your food”

The STOMACH said, “Without me, your food would not digest.”

The LUNGS bellowed back, “Without me, you couldn’t breathe.”

The EYES blinked, “Without me you could not see.”

The KIDNEYS snorted, “Without me, you could not detoxify and eliminate.”

The COLON meekly spoke up. “I am important. You need me to eliminate all of the garbage from your systems.”

Everyone laughed and made fun of him. “How can you be as important as we are. You’re just a smelly old sewer.”

The poor colon… his feelings were hurt. He turned away, and thought, I’ll show them. HE SHUT DOWN!! Then he sat back and watched what would happen.

The BRAIN was stupefied.

The HEART’S beat was weak.

The ARMS and LEGS were weak and couldn’t move.

The LUNGS breathing was shallow.

The EYES became cloudy.

The KIDNEYS quit.

Then the COLON looked around and decided it was time to call another meeting.

It wasn’t too lively this time, but everyone was in total agreement.

The COLON WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT ORGAN.

SO HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOUR COLON?

Here are the 6 quick excerpts given by Cancer.org:

1). Get screened for colorectal cancer

2). Eat lots of vegetables, fruits and whole grains

3). Get regular exercise

4). Watch your weight

5). Don’t smoke

6). Limit alcohol

Now, for a more in-depth HOLISTIC (whole body approach) to protecting your colon, here are some significant things to be aware of and to take action on:

Very Well Health, on the internet, says some very key studies say to prevent colon issues, the body needs:

1). High blood levels of Vitamin D. If you don’t know what food is giving you Vitamin D, buy a ‘whole food’ Vitamin D tablet from a trusted source; NOT Vitamin D tablets from a commercial drug store. You can also get plenty of Vitamin D from early morning sunshine bathing for about 10 minutes or so. Since we’ve destroyed our own ozone layer, after 9:00 am or 10:00 am, the sun is “too hot” and more lethal for sunbathing. That’s our society’s fault; not nature’s fault.

2). For colon protection, Very Well Health continues to say you need more Folate or Vitamin B that comes from foods like asparagus and spinach. How many times have you had asparagus or spinach in the last year? Unless you’re vegan or vegetarian, I bet you haven’t had any of these things more than once or twice. Just guessin’! And if you don’t like these foods, you can drink them. Fresh juices with vegetables taste WAY better than they do for some people than eating them. Besides, you get the benefit of them faster (straight into the bloodstream) and they are FAR easier to digest. Personally, I drink the powder, full of greens, from PurityProducts.com daily, called the Organic Juice Cleanse. It gives you a whole day of Vitamins and Minerals you never get from having to eat them. I put a big scoop of green powder into a Green drink and I’m good to go. Find a powder with Kale, Spinach, Wheatgrass, Greens, Spirilina and stuff like that, that you know is GREAT for you, and “DRINK UP!”

3). Very Well Health says ‘Quercetin’ also stalls the growth of colon cancer. Bet you never even heard of this one? It’s an anti-oxidant you can get in pill form and is naturally found in apples, onions, and berries. Once again, you can drink these things. Homemade smoothies or juicing allows you to put in A LOT MORE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES that you can actually like, while getting a full day of supreme vitamins and minerals, along with protecting your colon.

4). White Tea and Green Tea is great for inhibiting colon issues, too. Your herbal teas, which you can get at health food stores and many commercial stores (these days) are very beneficial to overall health. They are full of anti-oxidants and they go directly into the bloodstream.

5). Very Well Health also mentioned the

Screening B) Healthy Diet C) Exercise and D) Limiting Alcohol, similar to the Cancer organizatioon.
My MAIN man, Dr. Mercola (who you can Google for his informative Articles) says up to 50% of colon cancer cases are preventable through a healthy diet, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight. 50% guys! He also says you can optimize your Vitamin D levels by having more vegetables, garlic and fiber and avoiding processed meat, which also lowers colon cancer risks.

Dr. Mercola says that research has found people who eat red meat have a 24% greater risk of colon cancer. However, he also says that grass-fed beef is far better for you and actually has some cancer-fighting compounds.

So, he recommends that if you’re a meat eater, to stick to organically raised grass-fed meats ONLY and cooked fairly rare to medium; not well-done, due to carcinogens.

Dr. Mercola says Garlic and Tumeric (raw or in pill form) have many medicinal properties for your colon, as well. In other words, it’s your REAL medicine, without the side effects.

One of the MAIN PRODUCTS I recommend for COLONS, as well as, overall body health (your INTERNAL INSURANCE POLICY) is GEORGE’s ALOE VERA JUICE. Read a little about it’s benefits on my website at foodsthatcauseconstipation..com, under Articles. Every one in the family can benefit from George’s Aloe Vera Juice… babies, seniors, parents, students, you name it. No side effects. Tastes like Spring Water. The ONLY brand that I know, which takes out the bitter taste. You only need 2 or 3 capfuls in the morning and 2 or 3 capfuls at night before sleep. No crying babies at night. No more stomachaches. No more constipation challenges, either. It’s a plant from heaven. The Aloe Vera Juice is a drink, not to be confused with, the Aloe Vera Gel, which is used on the outside of the body.

Our bodies are our precious instruments that we were graciously given at birth, to take special care of. Just being more aware and more active in doing that is a 1st step. Even if it’s a baby step; it’s a step, nonetheless. No one is telling you to give up everything you like. The suggestions are there to simply help you become more balanced and to give yourself more Tender Loving Care (TLC). A little TLC never hurt anybody and TLC for your COLON is a MUST!

All Natural Antioxidants to Help Keep Your Body Toxic Free

In the western civilization and beyond, healthy eating habits have hit an all time low. In its’ place are meals (if you can call it that) packed with toxins and preservatives. From the fast food burger to the greasy pizza’s packed with imitation cheese. From the greasy french fries that literally take more than two weeks to digest completely to the soft drink with artificial sweeteners. Since our bodies are not equipped to handle such abuse, it has to react in some way. So, it does… negatively. Because it has been poorly treated, the body needs help purging this ‘trash’ out of its’ system. That’s where natural antioxidants can come to their rescue. While it cannot cure the ailing, it can help aid in keeping the human mechanism healthy by cleansing it of free radicals.

Let us first give the definition of an oxidant, free radical, toxin, and antioxidant…

An oxidant is a living organism. When it is mixed with oxygen it oxidizes. The result is the creation of free radicals. These free radicals are made up of incomplete molecules and atoms. When oxidizing is over done, the extra oxidants divide and become free radicals roaming aimlessly throughout the body until it has attached itself unhealthily to an organism to feel complete. The organism in which it attached itself begins to deteriorate.

Toxin is formed once the extra oxidizing process explodes sending free radicals to disperse where they may. The body needs a way to rid itself of these radicals.

An antioxidant is the living organism that oxidizes when it comes in contact with oxygen. We now know that this is a good thing unless it is over done to the point of ‘blowing up’ so to speak sending particles of the oxidant all over the place in the body (free radicals). Thus, the true definition of an antioxidant is to fight against the process of oxidation that cause free radicals to form and causes harm to the physical body.

Natural antioxidants are found in health foods such as fruits and drinks. Organic foods are best since they have no pesticides or preservatives to strip away their nutrients. They are commonly called ‘super foods’ due to their ability to combat free radicals from attaching themselves to otherwise healthy organs. In short, it helps to rid the human body of toxins that eat away at healthy tissue causing the body to become less healthy.

Here are eight super foods you may want to store up on: white tea, green tea, pomegranate, strawberries, cranberries, apples, red kidney beans, and plums.

There are many more, but this can help get you started to combat those free radicals before they become toxic to your system. Taking all natural antioxidants to help keep your body toxic free is the wisest option. Keeping your diet natural is always best. Even doctors can attest to that!

Why Detox Should Always Be Step One

Detox is the first step in my Today is Still the Day plan and book. We use those first two weeks of the plan to do a gentle detox. People have, over the years, questioned why this is step one. It’s pretty simple – we live in a very toxic world and toxicity really messes up how our body functions.

Recent research now shows that toxicity is implicated in a host of other conditions, including neuro-degenerative disease, obesity, autoimmune illnesses, as well as cancer, arthritis, gout, lupus, and fibromyalgia.

We are inundated with toxins from fluoride in dental products and water supply to glyphosate contaminating our food supply, artificial preservatives and sweeteners, drugs, cosmetics and personal care products, flame retardants and EMF’s (electromagnetic fields) from cell phones, computers and other electronics. Let’s not overlook toxic emotions, thoughts, beliefs and relationships as they all impact our physical health as well.

Because we live in this world, we will be impacted by all or some of these to some degree. So what can we do? Plenty! We can be intentional in choosing the highest quality, organic, grass-fed and finished foods we can find and afford. A study done at the University of California found that eating organically grown food for just 6 days significantly decreased toxins in the body by an average of 60.5%. I don’t know about you but that is amazing to me and seems like a very simple step to take for such an impactful result.

Avoiding artificial preservatives, additives, sweeteners and fake, packaged, processed foods will go a long way to reducing your toxic load quickly.

Of course increasing clean water and fiber will help sweep toxins out of your body. Increasing intake of healthy fats including omega-3 fats like fish and krill oil, pasture butter and coconut oil and eliminating toxic fats like margarine and seed oils like canola will also help the body detoxify and heal.

Being aware of stressful, negative, toxic emotions, thoughts and relationships and finding effective ways to deal with them, like EFT, will also reduce your toxic load.

By cleaning up your diet and lifestyle in some intentional ways, you can gently detoxify yourself and jump-start any other changes you want to make. Aren’t you worth two weeks of clean eating? It is such a simple, doable step and you will be surprised by how much better you feel. I invite you to contact me and we can discuss how I might help you to do this.
