You Really CAN Detox Fat Away!

You Really CAN Detox Fat Away!

Detox Toxic Fat 

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.

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.

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

Toxic Thoughts = Damaged Liver?

Toxic Thoughts = Damaged Liver?

Can Toxic Thoughts Harm Your Liver?

By detoxifying your physical body, you begin a process that will help you cleanse and transform your thoughts and emotions as well. As you pour fresh live juices and veggie smoothies into your body, they will push out toxic substances that have been stored in tissues, fluids, and cells.  Emotions attached to toxic substances often surface when you cleanse, especially during a liver cleanse. You can assist this process by allowing old thought patterns and emotions to come into full consciousness during detoxification and then release them and let them go. Sometimes, you may need to “dig up”  others and release them so you can be free.
