Detoxification and Cleansing. Doesn’t ‘cleansing’ negativity and bad health remnants sound like the right thing to do physically and spiritually? And don’t we all want to Prevent Disease? How can we think of preventing disease if we don’t consider using tools such as Detoxification?
The cleansing or purging of the intestines–detoxification–dates back to 2500 B.C. with Egyptian bowel specialists. The Greeks also used it, as did the American Indians. Detoxification has been known and used for ages. But this is the time in history it is the most needed and the most important. Foods have become denatured, devoid of enzymes, overly sugared, and just plain poisoned. Food and water have become more toxic. And our digestive systems are overloaded. Detoxification is absolutely imperative.
Your elders most likely practiced detoxification with you! You may have memories of your grandmother or mother giving you a “clean-out” or “wash-out” every year right before the beginning of the school year… Or you may remember being ill and watching your grandmother, or some family member, walk into the backyard, pull some roots out of the ground, some leaves off a plant, wash them, and make you a potent tea that had you feeling light on your feet, energized, and brand new again in no time…
Detoxification has been called the ‘missing link to disease prevention’. Unfortunately, with the amount of toxins in our foods and the environment, our bodies have difficulty performing such an automatic function alone. The process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through vital eliminatory organs such as the liver, kidneys, lungs, skin, and colon, is something they were once capable of when they were not completely overloaded. If these toxic substances are not eliminated, our intelligent bodies push toxins to one side, and surround it in mucous and fat in order for us not to suffer an imbalance or immune reaction.
Our emotions are also affected by a toxic, congested body. The emotion of ‘Not Letting Go’ is associated with the health of the colon/large intestine. Negativity is more difficult to ‘let go’ of’ in life if a person is not having minimum 2-3 bowel movements per day. The colon when impacted in this way brings a person to suffer constipation. So consider a detoxification a step towards cleansing emotionally also…
For those who have considered Detoxification to manage their weight, or to lose weight successfully, you should know you’re perfectly right in doing so! Why? For the following reasons: The body surrounds toxins with MUCOUS and FAT. If the body is storing foreign substances in fatty deposits, this is a crucial reason for Detoxification. The more Fat the body is storing, the more Toxic the body is. And maintaining a low fat diet and low body fat in general is a form of disease prevention also. People can be carrying between 5 and 16 pounds of mucous and fat that carry toxic waste!
A cleansing and detoxification program should do the following:
- 1- to clean the digestive tract of accumulated waste and fermented bacteria
- 2- purify the liver, blood, and kidneys
- 3- clear excess congestion and mucous from the body
- 4- correct craving dependencies of nicotine, alcohol, drugs, sugar and caffeine
- 5- increase mental clarity
- 6- balance hormones
- 7- strengthen the immune system
- 8- and change bad eating habits in a person so their stomach reduces to normal size
In other words, I expect the best results from the program I choose to recommend. My favorite detoxification and cleansing programs help you achieve true core health, weight management/weight loss, energy, fitness and balance.
