Eliminating and neutralizing toxins (a.k.a. detoxing or detoxification) through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymphatic system and skin is one of the most important things we can do for our body and our overall health! Due to the increased pollution in our air, water, and food, as well as the consumption of processed food and the consumption of GMO’s, our bodies are overloaded and have become inefficient in doing this without proper assistance.
Simply put- our systems and organs that were once capable of filtering out unwanted substances are now completely over-burdened to the level where toxic material(s) continue to remain in our bodies. Detoxing through specific processes is a way to help the body get rid of poisons/toxins. By following certain protocols those who are immunocompromised with ailments such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, systemic lupus, and many other diseases will greatly benefit by the following suggestions:
1. Drink Water! Our bodies are comprised of over 70% water; drinking helps flush out toxins and helps the body function at a more optimal level. Dehydration causes cell death…remember that! Not all water is the same, tap water is contaminated with chlorine, fluoride, and many other chemicals; it is advised to drink clean filtered water. Drinking purified water helps to pull toxins out of the system, and it is advised to alternate drinking purified water with pure clean water with natural minerals.
2. Keep it GREEN! Add green juices to your arsenal; use kale, cucumber, celery to juice. These are filled with chlorophyll and antioxidants.
3. Add fresh lemon to your water and your salads. Lemon is a natural detoxifying agent; it is also an alkalinizing fruit with strong anti-carcinogenic properties. Lemon also helps with the digestion.
4. Eat enough fibrous vegetables to help absorb and push out the toxins from the body.
