we are all Toxic?
Yes, we are all poisonous. It is impossible to prevent the toxins in our environment without being in a bubble. So, what are these toxins and where can you find them?
- Food contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and additives
- Air pollution from diesel, carbon monoxide from fuel combustion and industrial plant emissions
- homes contaminated with lead, asbestos, toxic cleaners, mold and dust
- Chronic food allergies and diseases that cause toxic byproducts
- Drugs stress system of detoxification
Fortunately, you have several body systems that have been designed to protect you from the harmful effects of environmental toxins.
how the body detoxifies
- Breathing: breathing helps to eliminate metabolic byproducts such as carbon dioxide which helps to balance the pH of the blood
- Liver: filters the blood, and then disposes of the toxins in your gut is excreted in your stool or tissue as fat to protect yourself from harmful levels of toxins in the blood
- Kidney: they filter and eliminate toxins and metabolic byproducts through urine
- Sweat, sweat our help to eliminate toxins such as heavy metals and metabolic by-products
- disorders: digestive system process and eliminate toxins and metabolic by-products through defecation
Reducing Toxin Exposure
- Eating organic versus conventional foods to avoid pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics and hormones
- Eat Whole Foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, vegetables, organic meat, wild-caught fish, nuts and seeds rather than processed foods to avoid food additives and toxins such as high fructose corn syrup and nitrates
- Add indoor air quality by calling the American Lung Association of www.lungusa.org or a city or county health department for your local environmental toxins
- Identify and remove food allergies by calling a naturopathic doctor (symptoms of food allergies and toxicity may be fatigue, congestion, by nasal drip, frequent infections sinus headache, plugged ears, gas and bloating)
Simple One Week Detoxification Guide
- Start by drinking half body weight in ounces of fresh lemon juice. I juiced lemon half a day and add it to my water.
- Eat only organic whole foods (see above). This does not mean fast food or highly processed foods including organic prepared meals that have additives and preservatives. Avoid meats preserved with nitrates as lunch and cured meats. Lunch meat that has nitrates is fine (Quick Tip: wrap nitrate lunch meat Romaine lettuce with oil soaked olives and fresh tomato and avocado).
- avoid refined sugar, alcohol and caffeine including chocolate and coffee. Sweeteners like honey, agave nectar and stevia is fine. Do not use artificial sweeteners as equal, Splenda or NutraSweet that they are toxic to the liver and nervous system.
- Take a fiber supplement such as psyllium or flax meal (found in health food part of most supermarkets) from food at night before bed. The serving size should be approximately 5-8 grams of fiber and should not have any sugar or food coloring added. If you need extra flavor add that fresh juice.
- show anything to increase blood circulation and increase perspiration for the release of toxins. Sauna or hot Epsom salt baths (4 cups a bath for 30-60 minutes) in additions to exercise are great ways to increase perspiration and release of toxins. Remember to hydrate well if you are sweating in the sauna, bath or exercise to prevent dehydration. I recommend 30-60 minutes of exercise 3-5 times a week. If you are just starting out, start slowly and work up to this point. If you have circulatory problems, consult your doctor before starting an exercise program or go to the sauna or hot bath for a longer time.
I love this bomb because it helps you to explore different foods and lifestyles. This program also helps you to live like this everyday eating foods that the body was consumed; leaving you feeling energized, clear and life every day!
