USING REAL FOOD TO DETOX
Adding nutritious foods and quality supplements are a priority and a great way to implement changes that allow your body to detox naturally through dietary protocol. This process is essential to sustain quality of life. Therefore getting the toxins that are in your body out “better out than in” as they say, this is just as important as replenishing what is needed going in the body. Toxic load can be the big reason why your body’s metabolism and function has slowed down this process. Symptoms that are related to excessive toxins in the body include chronic fatigue, inflammation, pain, constipation, irregular bowels, headaches, body odor and acne.
Our external environment, such as poor air quality and water, pesticides and other chemicals used on agricultural products, chemical preservatives and colors used in drinks and processed foods and food itself that has been chemically manipulated, like hydrogenated oils and high-fructose corn syrup all add to our toxicity. Many of these chemicals get inside us because we eat, drink and inhale them. And as the skin is the largest organ in the body which eliminates it also absorbs toxins easily. Toxic load can come from our working, living, recreational environment, fast foods and on our dinner plates.
I recommend the following three easy steps to detoxify your body:
Step 1. Maximize your body’s natural detoxification process
Step 2. Minimize your toxic exposure
Step 3. Getting tested for heavy metals
In our bodies the organs responsible to process and eliminate toxins are the liver, kidneys, and the sweat glands. Herbs that can support these organs are: aloe, burdock, cayenne, dandelion root, dill, ginger, horseradish, parsley, peppermint, rosemary, saffron, and turmeric.
Eating clean to minimize and eliminate toxins, this is a natural part of releasing toxins from body and choosing organic foods, and organic personal care products for the body as natural as possible.
