A toxin is a substance which can damage a living organism. It seems that “toxins” have become a household word, since everything we eat, drink, breathe and lather on our body is potentially filled with foreign chemicals.
There are physical toxins like heavy metals, chlorine and most medications. Then there are biological toxins like yeasts, bacteria and viruses. If you don’t facilitate cleansing of these toxins, they can accumulate in your body and affect your health on a cellular level and ultimately compromise your Immune system. If you want to achieve or maintain vibrant health, you must be proactive about cleansing the toxins from your body.
Detoxification is a very broad and complex subject. Here are a few basic protocols to get you going in the right direction. Pick one method, apply it for several weeks then move on to the next adventurous step.
You will be pleasantly surprised to feel a renewed sense of energy and enthusiasm for life when you cleanse the toxins.
Before any type of cleansing occurs, the colon must be first in order. The colon can be likened to your body’s waste disposal system. A colon that is weak or spastic can create auto-intoxication, where numerous types of toxins are reabsorbed back into the blood steam and circulated throughout the whole body.
Seek out a licensed and board certified colonic therapist that can recommend the best program for you.
2. Coffee enemas
Enemas date back to the Egyptian times and until 1972, coffee enemas were described in the Merck Manual, a medical doctor’s text book. The caffeine in the coffee stimulates the bile ducts and helps to detox and flush out the liver. Green tea may also be used instead of coffee.
While we are on the subject of cleansing the colon, wheat grass implants are also very beneficial. Wheat grass contains concentrated levels of vitamins and minerals and has the highest concentration of chlorophyll of any other plant. Chlorophyll is a great detoxifying agent and cell regenerator.
4. Lemon and Olive Oil Shots
The liver is the main filter of the blood and thus can easily be burdened with physical and biological toxins. There are many types of liver flushes, but this simple daily shot can help you achieve great results.
1 organic lemon
1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Dash of cayenne
6 ounces of purified water
Chop up the lemon into pieces (rind and all) and add the water and olive oil. Blend at high speed in a Vita mix or powerful blender. Strain and drink and wait 1 hour before eating.
If you have never done any type of liver cleansing, start slowly with this and drink only a few ounces at a time throughout the day.
5. Parasite Cleanse
No one likes the idea of parasites crawling and living inside of our bodies, but the reality is that most of us have them, unless we have taken the time to do a parasite cleanse. Parasites dump their toxins into your body and feed off your cells and nutrients.
There are many parasite cleanses available at natural markets and on line. My favorite and most reliable cleanse is Dr. Hulda Clark’s Parasite Cleanse. I prefer it over others because the strength and purity of the herbs. The results i have personally experienced her program have been consistent.
There are many ways to cleanse the body from accumulated toxins. If you want to be proactive with prevention and help your body heal from any type of degenerative illness, cleansing the toxins is essential. Stay tuned for Part 2.
