Detox: Your Key to Health and Weight Loss

Detoxification means cleansing your blood. This is done by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin. But when these systems are compromised or overloaded with toxins and waste, impurities aren’t properly filtered and the body is under duress. 

I recently listened to Joel Osteen on SiriusXM as I was driving. He told the story of a remote village in Africa where the people suddenly started getting very sick, some even died. A team of investigators were sent out from the closest major city to determine what was making the people sick. When they tested the water, they found that it was contaminated. They looked and looked for the source of the contamination but could not find it. Finally, they sent divers up the mountain to the source of the stream to see what they could find. They discovered that a mother pig and her piglets had fallen in and drowned. They were stuck right at the opening where the water flowed out.

Detox Toxic Fat & Lose Weight

Detox Toxic Fat & Lose Weight

When you remove toxins, you will lose weight and feel better. Fat soluble toxins are more difficult to remove than water-soluble toxins that can be flushed from the body easily. Fat-soluble toxins include heavy metals, pesticides, preservatives, food additives, pollutants, plastics and other environmental chemicals. They must become water-soluble for the body to eliminate them completely. These toxins get stored mostly in the fat cells and the liver. With toxins stored in the fat cells, it is difficult to lose weight. The body will hold onto the fat as much as possible to protect your delicate tissues and organs. If the pathways of elimination such as the intestinal tract or the lymphatic system are not functioning optimally, this makes it even harder to get the toxins out of the body. If your diet is deficient in fiber, up to 94% of the bile – along with its toxic baggage – gets reabsorbed back to the liver to be recycled.

March Detox Contest

The winds are blowing. We just rolled our clocks forward. Spring is virtually here! And spring is one of the best times to cleanse your body.

If you look at Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), spring is the best time to detoxify the body—specifically the liver. The primary biological reason is that nature supports cleansing the body during the spring season. As spring approaches, most people notice changes in their sleep and eating habits, along with their energy levels, mood, and even their senses. As these changes take place, the organs of the body are ready for cleanse, so any efforts to detox the liver and other organs are enhanced. Historically, people would eat lighter and would include wild foods such as nettles, dandelion and sorrel in the spring, which cleanse the liver and other organs of elimination.

Estrogen, Fibroids and the Liver

Any hindrance of the detoxification process resulting from poor diet, alcohol, drugs or toxins can cause estrogen dominance. The liver has a two-step detoxification process, which filters hormones and toxins in the bloodstream. In phase I, the liver converts substances into toxic free radicals before they are converted into a water-soluble form in phase II. If phase II isn’t operating up to speed, the toxic free radicals build up in your system. Both phases must be in balance in order for proper elimination of waste to occur via sweat, urine, stool or from the lungs.

Foggy Brain and the Gut-Brain Axis

Do you have a hard time focusing, or forget simple details, or mix up your words, or feel scattered or confused, don’t blame it on your brain— blame it on your gut.

Brain fog is considered as a loss of mental clarity, difficulty concentrating, and forgetfulness. Though you may feel this way before your first morning coffee, brain fog is actually a symptom of a deeper issue—inflammation in your body— and in particular, your digestive tract. Fogginess and slower cognitive function is more closely related to digestive conditions such as leaky gut, candida, and bacterial dysbiosis. This connection exists between your gut and nervous system, called the gut-brain axis.

What causes disease? It comes down to two things: an overload of toxins and deficiency of nutrients. If we keep cleansing our bodies and feeding them superior nutrition like we get from fresh vegetable juices, we have an excellent chance of staying healthy.

Want to avoid fall sniffles? Some health practitioners say that if you cleanse with the seasons, you won’t get sick. This is your opportunity to clean out the toxins before the holidays season is upon us. Cleansing your body not only helps you flush away the toxins, you can flush away fat too.

30-Day Detox/Liver Flush

Our stressful carb-filled lives cause abuse to the liver and overtax it.  Illness or disease are inevitable if we don’t cleanse and rejuvenate this hard working organ.To rebuild and repair the liver, it’s imperative that we:

  • Remove excess fat from the liver
  • Support the flow of bile
  • Flush out the toxins that have been stored in the liver
  • Dissolve or pass stones that are stored in the liver (yes the liver can get stones just like the gallbladder)
  • Regenerate damaged liver cells
