There are many faces and iterations, forms and processed to DETOXIFICATION

Some, any or all of the following might be at play and considered, at work and even
interacting, complementing and supporting the overall process, outcome, success and
results, level of efficiency :

 improving the body’s overall abilities to handle toxic substances and harmful elements

 applying to BOTH elements from within and without metabolic and/or environmental,

 strengthen immune and other internal organs and system

 protecting the body and health

 Avoiding toxins

 Mastering on-going and improved detoxification processes

 improving and/or protecting healing, health and well-being

 Totally avoiding all harmful or potential allergens or toxins might not be realistic or even possible, healthy or feasible and should NOT become and obsession of sorts

 Healthy eating, balanced living and good nutrition, supplementing, activity and exercise are all part of this recipe and equation for success As we continue to learn about refining and improving efficient detoxification mechanisms, we make it a priority to holistically and deliberately work on our health and well-being, NOT JUST FOCUS ON TOXINS AND GETTING RID OF THEM.

 Individualized supplementation, diet and choice also matter

 Optimal and peak performance will have different meanings for different people and NO TWO DETOX processes and procedures will be the same for any individual!

 Collaborate with an expert! DO NOT GO THE JOURNEY ALONE. Educate and empower yourself with knowledge, skill, know how and how to’s to detox successfully. Have a plan of action and prepare your body for what lies ahead.

 You can even try and select a holistic healing practitioner or wellness partner who is experienced with detoxification techniques

 Review and evaluate your reasons, rationale, need and timing for your detox and cleansing processes.

 Be realistic in your expectations about detox and do not expect instant miracle cures!

 Pick the technique of detox that works best for you and your situation. Just because it works for someone else, does not necessarily mean that it will work for you. There are no guarantees.

 Schedule time for your detox and be aware of the symptoms that you might develop and things to do during this time, what to do in case of discomfort or feeling lousy!

 Make sure you have support throughout the process

 Allow yourself some rest and relaxation in-between and after a detox or purge.

To optimize your chances at successfully DETOXIFYING YOUR BODY

 Plan and prepare well

 Spend some time, attention and effort on getting the Food and Nutrition aspect of your diet, habit and life ready, real and HEALTHY!

 Focus on your overall well-being, doing the DETOX for the right reasons, Enhancing, enjoying and ensuring your quality of life, taking issues with nurturing yourself regularly as a top priority! (we normally take it for granted or do not pay any attention to it at all – find some middle ground!)

 Accept yourself and your body, loving what you see and making the most of what nature has given, has to offer and will continue to provide you, tapping into those reserves and bio-chemical strengths that you have, your body’s natural ability to heal itself for example is under-rated and under-estimated!

 In your life, environment, products, purchases, personal and body care products, foods, home and work life and environments, pay some closer attention to and considering MORE the presence and avoidance of toxic substances. Focus on your overall health and well-being as well, exercise, eating healthy, drinking lots of water, supplementing, natural foods, balanced diet, activity you enjoy, maybe even some yoga and/or breathing exercises to keep you on the fast and inside track to continued DETOX success!

Here are some other negative effects DETOX can spare you and protect you from:

 granulomas

 hyper secretion of mucus

 imbalance in bacteria and fungus

 microscopic ulcerations

 pH imbalances

 liver and kidney difficulty, malfunction, breakdown or failure and many other health related issues and problems, even disease, putting you at increased risk over time.

You can opt for a systematic, gradual removal of toxic substances from the body and intervention will be necessary to effectively RID YOUR BODY OF THESE TOXINS FOR GOOD! It cannot just be left up to random change. You cannot, should not and dare not gamble with your health – you just get one edition of that!

There are numerous studies on detox that proves that it gives your body and your health a fighting chance, boost and even enables healing and recovery BETTER!

BUT, how would you know which DETOX is BEST FOR YOU, when and where to do it?

The answer is probably as unique as individuals and their case! Yet, here are some general guidelines that might put you on the right track finding a solution for you:

 Practically work out what you need and want to achieve

 Consult your doctor, detox-specialist, identify and discuss your need, plan and select a detox routine, process, technique and regimen that works and will make a difference for you

 Ensure that you are healthy, not nursing, pregnant, extremely tired and do not have to function full-tilt and can afford to give your body some time to get back to its natural balanced state, get rid of the toxins as the processes involved might have some ‘side-effects’ considered natural and part of the normal process!

 Whom you are, where you are in your life, schedule, career, personal life and more might affect your preparation, detox process and follow-up. Choose some detox method that you know will bring about change and results

 Naturopaths and holistic healers, medical and well-being practitioners will all be able to assist you in this process – YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TAKE THE JOURNEY ALONE.

 Cleansing, cleaning and clearing, flushing and DETOX takes planning, timing, persistence and discipline.

 If at any time during, or even after your DETOX you experience difficulty or discomfort, stop and consult your physician immediately. Each area of your body will require special attention as well as your whole health, which is reflective of you being so much more dynamic than the mere sum of your difference parts. There are different cleanses and routines recommended for different parts of your body like skin, liver, lymph, nervous system, heart, lungs, kidneys, stomach, bladder and other.

 You can choose one general one or take them one at a time to ensure success and results that address the concerns and issues that you might have effectively, affordably and reliably.

 Resting and allowing your body, mind and soul to reload, replenish, restore is essential too! Also, have periods of non-cleansing, just enjoying life and not necessarily undoing all the good you did, but not obsessively purge, flush etc. making your whole life center and surround it! It is unnatural, unhealthy and not necessary to maintain a healthy living balanced life.

Different people might have different sensitivities and responses to DETOX. Here are some of the symptoms, discomforts and/or things to be on the look out for as you move through these detoxification and cleansing routines:
 Dry mouth
 Emotional irritability
 Fatigue
 Fever
 Gas
 Headaches
 Loss of appetite
 Low energy
 No interest in sexual relations or intimacy
 other aches and pains
 Skin eruptions
 Temporary constipation or diarrhea
 Temporary stopping of menstruation or missed periods
 Tight muscles
 Yawning

Some would recommend you start with something simple like a colonic cleanse or enema, getting the liver to work better and dump all the toxins in your body OUT, FOR ONCE! Activated charcoal can clear the GI tract with varying degrees of efficiency for individuals as it binds and absorbs the harmful elements and your body excretes and gets rid of it. Powder, capsules or tablets are available for this purpose. Bentonite clay, hydration and supplements, comprehensive foods additions to your diet are great ways to accomplish lots in a short period.

You will see short-term results, but rest assured the work continues from the inside out long after these initial detox days have passed. You will reap the benefit for days, weeks and years to come, if done right and effectively, for the right reasons!

 Include all food-groups

 Hydrate – drinks lot of water

 Keep the portions small and more meals more frequently to get and keep your metabolism engine revving!

• Chamomile: Results have confirmed that the chamomile extract has reversal effects on the levels of paracetamol hepatotoxicity, and the authors concluded that the extract served as a hepatoprotective agent and that this hepatoprotective activity of chamomile might be due to the normalization of impaired membrane function activity.

• Milk thistle: The seeds are well known for liver protection properties. Milk Thistle helps repair of
damaged liver tissue and aids liver detoxification. A well known hepatic antioxidant, silymarin, from the milk thistle (Silybum marianum), inhibits liver damage by scavenging free radicals among other mechanisms. This powerful antioxidant protects the liver against alcohol and pharmaceutical injury and even poisoning from extremely toxic compounds. 

Milk Thistle is one of the most investigated plant extracts, with known mechanisms of action for oral treatment of toxic liver damage. Silymarin has been used as a protective treatment in acute and chronicliver diseases. 

It also acts by stimulating liver cell regeneration and cell membrane stabilization to prevent hepatotoxic agents from entering hepatocytes.

• Golden seal: The root contains substances that protect the liver, aid liver function and are antimicrobial. Another great liver stimulant and protector. One study demonstrated that berberine (from golden seal) possesses hepatoprotective effects against liver toxicity and that the effects are both preventive and curative. Berberine should have potential for developing a new drug to treat liver toxicity.

Results of another study show that Golden seal reduces acetominaphen (paracetemol) toxicity, and related acute liver failure.

• Dandelion: The leaf and root gently support liver, gall bladder and kidney function. Results of one study suggest that the extract of Dandelion root has protective action against alcohol-induced toxicity in the liver by elevating antioxidative potentials and decreasing lipid peroxidation.

• Wormwood: bitter properties in the leaf stimulate liver secretions and kill parasites. It is long known that the bitter constituents stimulate the gustatory nerves in the mouth and increase the secretion of gastric juice and bile, thereby promoting appetite and digestion.

• Turkish Rhubarb: Moderate doses stimulate a sluggish liver and bowel helping your liver to detoxify it’s own cells as well as the blood passing through it. There is some evidence of the protective potential of this herb against liver injury due to multiple causes.  In another study Turkish Rhubarb targeted liver metabolic and immune pathways and may be beneicial for complex metabolic diseases such fatty liver disease.

• Kiwifruit: As an antioxidant it protects the liver and has been shown to inhibit certain cancers. Use only organic kiwifruit to completely avoid the heavy sprays normally used. Data reported in one study suggested a beneicial effect of kiwi fruit peptides on the physiology of human intestine.

• Barley grass: A good source of superoxide dismutase (SOD) a group of enzymes important to a healthy liver. SOD aids in Phase 2 liver detoxi ication. Barley grass supplementation sustains liver anti-oxidative enzymes, catalase, glutathione peroxidase, and superoxide dismutase, at transcriptional and enzymatic levels, thus suppressing oxidative stress markers. 

• Spirulina: Liver examinations have revealed that Spirulina is potent in protecting the liver from toxic lesions and preserved the liver cell (hepatocyte) structure. Lesions including necrosis, lymphocyte in iltration, ballooning degeneration, and hepatocyte injury, as well as irregular lamellar organization, dilation of the endoplasmic reticula, and the presence of great numbers of cytoplasmic vacuolizations, were reversed by Spirulina. In other words, Spirulina heals the liver.

In the environments we live and function in, there are many contaminants present that we need to cope and deal with effectively to avoid their build up interfering with our health, well-being, longevity and balance. WE need to rid our systems and bodies of it and this is often called detoxification as we have seen. Anyone and everyone can do it, if you proceed with caution. Polluted air, additives in our foods, pesticides on our fruits and veggies, genetically altered food and more need to be clean, cleared and cleansed from our systems, tissue and being !

You do not have to believe that your intestines, colon, and blood stream are at risk or somehow plugged up with toxins, but there seems to be evidence that there is MORE of it in our systems than before. Fasting, laxatives and flushes are quite common BUT they are not necessarily good for you and could put you at risk if you do not understand the processes, goals and functioning of this "cleaning out of the system."

Things to bear in mind to optimize your DETOX

· In general to boost the effectiveness and results of this procedure and treatment, avoid caffeine, sugar, fried fatty foods, soda drinks, and alcohol directly following and a couple of days after. YOU WILL SEE AND FEEL THE DIFFERENCE.

· It can be messy and take long, so divert your attention and make it practical and comfortable.

· Stay hydrated and you can even take a shower before the procedure in order to prepare your skin for what is to come.

· Thermal blankets can enhance the experience and wrapping somewhat tight (NOT TOO TIGHT) can do the trick!

Many would also advise that a great way to rejuvenate and detoxify is to take a steaming hot epsom salt bath.
As part of this process, the harmful toxins or build up is excreted out of the body by natural processes and organs, like the skin to get rid of it for good. It helps with easing swelling and enriches your skin. This is not recommended for sufferers or patients with high blood pressure, heart, diabetic or kidney troubles.

Medications, supplements and other herbal, natural products to consider for detoxification
Apart from naturally occurring nutrients and good detox-enablers, like:
Whole foods
other natural products and substances
Fresh fruits and vegetables
Greens or phytochemical-rich foods and groups
Foods that protect you against cancer, heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure
there are also supplements and pills to consider – also for DETOX processes and results.

In our pop the pill type culture and habits, it is so easy to think that there is a magic bullet for everything. A tablet or capsule, gel-tab, mixture or potion for everything
under the sun – ailment and cure!

Sometimes we do not eat enough, eat the wrong things, too much, not a balanced diet, food on the run, and then take multivitamins and mineral supplements to ensure that we get our daily dose of what our bodies require. Others who may benefit include seniors and pregnant women.

Weighing in at 1.5 kilos your liver is the largest organ of your body. It is like a busy chemical-processing factory that performs over 500 functions for the body.

The healthy functioning of your liver is vital to the continued life of your physical body.

The Liver is responsible for over 250 functions including:
• Breaking down and eliminating every toxic substance that enters your bloodstream

• Processing and sorting all the blood and nutrients returning from the digestive process (except fat)

• Producing bile for digestion

• Balancing cholesterol

• Balancing your hormones (especially estrogen)

• Storage of some nutrients ready for the body to use

• Synthesizing substances essential for the immune system

The list goes on, and truly testifies to the benefits of maintaining a healthy liver.

Benefits of a healthy liver
There is much you can do to improve your health, simply by giving a little TLC to your liver.

If you have high cholesterol, then rather than taking a harmful statin drug, nurture your liver!

For a sluggish bowel, acne, poor immune system, bloating or menopause supporting liver function is key.

Benefits of a healthy liver
There is much you can do to improve your health, simply by giving a little TLC to your liver. If you have high cholesterol, then rather than taking a harmful statin drug, nurture your liver! For a sluggish bowel, acne, poor immune system, bloating or menopause supporting liver function is key.

How about your immune system?
Let’s say you eat a healthy balanced diet with only occasional alcohol but suffer from frequent chest infections, headaches or skin irritations. Nothing to do with your liver you think until you connect to dots.

You stay up too late at night then perhaps wake in the middle of the night. This is the time your liver is the most active, dumping toxins and producing such things as natural killer cells for your immune system. However, an active liver requires you to be resting at this particular time so it can get to work.

If you wake during the nights sweating or feeling uncomfortable, tossing and turning or getting hot feet then these are signs pointing to a disturbed liver function.

Hidden danger
Many substances including medicinal drugs commonly thought to be safe, are bombarding the liver with extra workload, acidity, inflammation and tissue damage. For example, thousands of people around the world think nothing of taking painkillers on a regular basis yet acetominaphen (paracetemol) toxicity is common.

It is so dangerous it can completely destroy the liver function if taken only slightly above the dose stated on label. Known by various names in different countries this is panadol, tylenol and other over-the-counter cold and flu, fever and pain remedies.

Experience shows that even when prescribed appropriately at the usual therapeutic dosage, paracetamol can be toxic to the liver (hepatotoxic).

Drug-induced liver injury has become a leading cause of severe liver disease in Western countries and therefore poses a major clinical and regulatory challenge.

Overloaded Liver
According to recent reports oxidative stress plays a pivotal role in the initiation and progression of hepatic (liver) damage following insult to a variety of hepatotoxins. The role of oxidative stress in viral hepatitis and autoimmune related liver diseases has been extensively documented. Moreover hepatotoxic chemicals damage liver cells.

The liver is the largest and most vital organ of the human body. Besides its crucial role in the metabolism of nutrients, liver is responsible for bio-transformation of drugs and chemicals thereby protecting body against toxic foreign  materials. In this process the liver is exposed to high concentration of toxic chemicals and their metabolites which may cause liver injury.

There are more than a hundred well known liver diseases with diversified pathology. The most frequent causes of hepatic disease include infectious agents (especially hepatitis viral A, B, and C), obesity related fatty liver disease, xenobiotics (alcohol, drugs, and chemicals) induced liver injury, inherited and genetic defects related liver diseases, autoimmune hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, and primary or secondary liver cancer.

Tying Into Ancient Philosophies:

Does Chinese Medicine Work?

You have had a head cold for over a month. No matter what type of medication you try, you simply can’t get rid of the problem. It continues to linger, knocking you out of your ability to have the energy you want to and function at the level you want every day. Getting desperate for an answer to get rid of the illness, you begin to look for alternatives.

A friend recommends an acupuncturist to you in order to help to cure the problem. There happens to be someone that she has also gone to who could probably help you to be cured of your cold. Even though you laugh at first, the cold has dragged on long enough, and you are willing to try the alternatives. You schedule an appointment and get ready to try something a little different with some alternative.

For most, there is some cynicism on whether the ideas of Chinese medicine really work. Even though it is an ancient practice that has been developed through both the physical and spiritual aspects, it doesn’t tie into much science that Western thought would give a second look at.

Chinese medicine, even though it is not a proven science, is a good alternative for those that are dealing with any type of illness. For about 90% that use the method, they will say that there are positive results that come from the practice. All you have to do to see if this is true is to look at the amount of time that it has lasted. You can also look at the growing popularity of various holistic methods that are now being used. Most of these come from Chinese medical philosophies.

If you are considering an alternative to your health, you can start to turn to ancient philosophies to better your energy. Even though science hasn’t proven its validity, time and people have. Chinese medicine, no matter what level of health you are working towards curing, can be effective if you walk in with the desire to finding the best healing alternatives.

Twisting Back Into Health:

Yoga as a Chinese Medicine

On the Western side of the world, Yoga is considered an exercise that helps with strength, cardiovascular and weight loss. However, in ancient Chinese medicine, Yoga was also used as a practice in order to cultivate health. If you are interested in Yoga, or have begun the practice, you will begin to recognize that the health related to Yoga also provides nourishment for a better balance towards health.

The idea of Chinese medicine is to create a balance of the flow of energy that is happening in one’s body. The incorporation of this medicine doesn’t just include the balance of the body. It also includes therelationships of the mind and the spirit that relate to the body. All areconsidered to be intertwined. When the energy flow of one area is off, it changes the energy flow of the entire system.

The basis of this idea in Chinese medicine is also the ideal behind Yoga. This form of exercise was used as a method to help with healing and balance in one’s life, and can be considered one of the ways to use Chinese medicine. The practice of Yoga, while it can help to treat ailments, is recognized more often as a way to prevent disease and imbalance. By practicing Yoga, one can keep their health on all levels.

The way that this is done through Yoga is through the opening of thevarious points in the body with the practice. Every Yoga move is directly linked to various chakras, or points in the body that help with energy flow. Yoga helps to open these chakras, and to help in keeping them open. By doing this, one is able to increase their energy and begin to stay in better health. Yoga is especially known for helping with problems such as insomnia, and in the functioning of internal organs.

If you want a natural alternative to healing, Yoga as a practice can help. This particular method is known to help increase energy as well as clear blocks that may be in your system. Over time, your energy will begin to increase and flow naturally, allowing you to stay in the best of health without the unnatural twists.

Sample Detox Recipe

Dr. Kiki Sidhwa recommends going on a monotrophic diet after a three-day fast. By monotrophic, we mean eating only one type of fruit for every meal. Example, for breakfast, you can eat apple. For lunch, try out oranges or pineapples. Eat until your hunger is satisfied. You can squeeze in a grapefruit juice at around 4 pm for your snack. And in the evening, eat only apples, pears, grapes or bananas.

Of course, this is just one of the do-it-yourself diet plans that you can take on when you are on a detox program. For most people, however, detox recipes are the best way to go. These detox recipes are especially designed to provide you with the necessary nutrient in the body and at the same time, providing you with the necessary antioxidants and substances that will cleanse your body from toxins.

For more fluid intake, you can try Ginger Healing Tea with Turmeric. What you need are the following:
2 cups of water
½ teaspoon of powdered ginger
½ teaspoon of turmeric
½ tablespoon of maple syrup and lemon extract

To make your special healing tea, add powdered herbs to boiling water and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the tea into a mug and add maple syrup and lemon extract. Stir and whalaaah--- you can start drinking!

For breakfast, you can try the Vegetable Super Juice. This juice gives you the needed energy boost for your senses, wakens your digestive system and can keep you going until lunchtime. You need:
1 whole cucumber
4 celery sticks
2-4 handfuls of spinach
8 lettuce leaves

You can also add other green vegetables like parsley and fresh alfalfa sprouts. The process is easy and simple, juice all ingredients and add distilled water. You can also add lemon juice for better taste.

And now for lunch, try the Alkalizing RAW Soup. All you need are:
1 avocado
2 spring onions
½ red or green pepper
1 cucumber
2 handfuls of spinach
½ clove of garlic
100 ml of light vegetable Bouillon
lemon or lime juice and Bragg Liquid Aminos for added taste.

Just like our vegetable juice, the recipe is simple and easy to do. Blend the avocado and stock to form a light paste. Add other ingredients and blend. And then you can start eating!

Our dinner treat is Warm Broccoli Soup. All you need is:
½ avocado
6-8 broccoli heads
1/3 red onion
1 celery stick
a big handful of spinach
inch of root ginger
cumin and Bragg liquid amino for added taste.

Lightly steam the broccoli for 5-6 minutes. After steaming, blend all the ingredients together and add garlic and pepper to taste. This is perfect for a cold winter night.

Feeling hungry still? These recipes are just few of the hundred other detox recipes available. You can find many more detox recipes at the cookbook section of your local book stores.

Tuning Into Opposites for Health:

The Principle of Yin and Yang for Medicine

Chinese medicine is not only a way of science that incorporates the discoveries made for holistic health. It also incorporates philosophies that are important for one to be able to stay in the best health. Along with these philosophies are practical principles that are applied with Chinese medicine in order for holistic health to be achieved.

The idea of Yin and Yang is one of the many principles that are at the root of Chinese medicine and it’s functioning. This particular method was applied through Taoism, one of the religious practices in the Orient. From this philosophy, the Chinese discovered that the laws of the universe could be applied to each individual in order to gain optimum health. The idea of Yin and Yang incorporates five major ideas that are then used in order to help one gain the best of health. The first of these is opposition. This means that everything and everyone has two polar opposites. When one is balanced, both of these are controlling each other. This opposition is essential to one being able to exist in the universe.

Not only is this opposition essential for existence, but it is also what allows one to be healthy. By balancing out these two opposites, one is able to nourish them as well as grow into new understanding and balance.

However, even if these are not balanced, there is still a little of one side into the other making the idea of Yin and Yang interchangeable. When one applies these particular philosophies to health, they can find that they are able to use the principles to help with health. With each side of your body is another side that is the polar opposite. A good example is your abdomen, which needs your back in order to remain balanced. By focusing on both sides, you will be able to gain balance, energy and a holistic approach to your life.

The idea of Chinese medicine is one that doesn’t just record symptoms through a scientific perspective. It takes into account the dark and light sides of everyone. By learning how to apply the principles of Yin and Yang to every part of your health, there is the ability to learn to exist with a new balance.

Towards a Well-Rounded Lifestyle: Defining Chinese Medicine

If you were ever asked about what Chinese medicine was, you could think of a variety of definitions, ideas and concepts that are used in the practice. Chinese medicine is not limited to a specific set of rules or processes that are used in healing and helping one with their ailments. However, there are specific concepts that are used with the practice of Chinese medicine that can be applied in any area.

Since the beginning of Chinese medicine, there has been an expansion into a variety of methods and ideologies that help to enhance one’s well being. Overall, Chinese medicine is an approach to a holistic lifestyle. This means that with the practice of Chinese medicine is also the unification of the physical with the mental and spiritual. When one has unified all three of these aspects, they are healthy.

Not only does Chinese medicine approach health through holistic methods, it also uses ideas of natural law in order to enhance the experience of this type of medicine. All of the laws that are in the universe are inversely related to one’s body. In this practice, they are considered to be a reflection of each other. Whether you are looking into acupuncture or Qigong as a practice, you can expect that natural laws will be at the basis of understanding how your body works.

After there is an understanding of natural laws as well as the holistic lifestyle, Chinese medicine will move into approaches towards energy. This is one of the major universal laws that are applied at all levels of Chinese medicine. Through any practice of Chinese medicine, it is also said that there are specific energies that are linked. The idea behind Chinese medicine is to find a way to unite the energies and to keep them flowing in a way that is complete and natural.

The idea of Chinese medicine is to create a lifestyle that is balanced and flows with the proper type of energy. No matter what area or aspect of Chinese medicine you are looking into, you can expect to see the practice with these foundational ideals. The goal of this is to allow one to move into a lifestyle that enhances all areas of living.

Where does your daily exposure come from, is it at its worst and how can you avoid and deal effectively with it?

You may wonder sometimes why your body seems to be heavy and you feel lazy to move, yet you are not sick. You are more than willing to be energetic but your body is not just up to it. To address the problem, you resort to eating a lot, gulp up cups of coffee and smoke, thinking that you will be lively after. For a while, you feel good and going. Unknowingly though, you are accumulating toxins in your body. With this scenario happening more and more, you might need to detoxify.

With our ever-dynamic world today, we want our bodies to be constantly active so we can move along with the fast paced lifestyles. Hence, we resort to body stimulants such as coffee, cigarettes, diet pills, drugs, and a lot more thinking that they will help the body to stay up all the time, but they do otherwise. These stimulants cause immediate loss of energy and emotional symptoms such as headaches, sickness, and depression. They are also considered as toxins in the body.

What are toxins? Toxins are agents that are able to cause body harm. There are two kinds of toxins, the Exogenous or external toxins, and Endogenous or internal toxins. The Exogenous toxins come from external sources such as car fumes, tobacco smoke, drugs, factory pollution, etc. On the other hand, the Enogenous toxins come from viral or bacterial infection. Due to metabolism, the body creates its own toxin called Autogenous toxins.

These harmful substances are eliminated in the body in a process called detoxification. Detoxification is the removal of stored toxic products from the bowel, the blood, liver, and kidneys including the great amount of toxic substances stored in body fat to cure chronic diseases such as cancer. The easiest way to detoxify the body is the body detox through a natural diet. To detoxify the body naturally is a change in the diet from a poor to a healthy one. A healthy diet includes raw food diet, specifically, fruits and vegetables.

Naturally, the body detoxifies itself all day. The peak of detoxification occurs when the body is rested during sleep until noon. This is a way for the body to eliminate the toxins acquired from pollution, stimulants and nutrients.

For the ever busy people, you can substitute your stimulants with natural diet to acquire a healthy and active body. Most common stimulants taken by people are refined white sugar, coffee, diet pills, cigarettes and red meat.

Sugar has a stimulating effect. Hence, we feel invigorated when we drink soda. What we do not know, refined white sugar has detrimental effects on the body. Examples of products containing refined white sugar are cola and ketchup. It is advised to cut down on it by using brown sugars like cane sugar which is natural. Fruit juices also give the same kick as to refined white sugar.

Late night workers resort to drinking coffee to keep them awake. As natural substitute to coffee with a detoxifying effect is Japanese or Chinese green tea. The Japanese or Chinese green tea gives the same kick because it also contains caffeine but it does not contain substances that are irritating to the stomach. Diet pills are also stimulants for the body to be kept alive. This may be observed among athletes specially, during time for competitions because they give more energy. They are being taken albeit the toxic effect in the body. In lieu of this, athletes must take fruits instead due to their natural detoxifying effects.

For cigarette smokers who think smoking stimulates their mind to think, they must think twice for smoking causes cancer. If they take carrots, they will experience the same effect in a more natural way.

The use of household cleaners that are chemical-based and personal health care products such as shampoos, toothpaste, deodorants, and cleansers should be reduced as well. These chemicals are inside us; we never really fully eliminate them unless going to a process of detoxification. These toxins and harmful chemicals, agents, free radicals etc. are ever-present around and even in us, the things we use, air we breathe, water we drink and more.

There are popular manufacturing compounds, chemicals and additives that abound in our environment, foods, water, commodities, products, domiciles, living and working spaces that are hard to deny or escape from. There are many published sources of these toxins, known carcinogens, poisons and contaminants. There is an eclectic listing of some of those, that you might not have considered at all, or deemed harmful included for your convenience at the end of the text, with some sources and products they might be present in.

For red meat lovers who really feel good and strong after feasting on meat, they better think about cutting on it. Fish is a better substitute. Now, we understand why our parents keep on reminding us to eat fruits and vegetables. They give us energy in more natural ways, and they keep us fit and healthy.

It is real, it is a top priority to get rid of it and the harmful effects it can have on your body, health, and future. Educate and empower yourself to identify and avoid them if at all possible. Ensure that you are aware of how to despite the fact that they are present in your environment, these toxins can be dealt with in a productive, pro-active fashion, corrective and preventative, even intervention type actions that you can take to safeguard yourself (and your family, loved ones, co-workers and society at large). You need to be aware of the different sources, scope and nature of the problem, intensity, severity, duration, risk and where to find them, how to avoid and get rid of them for good. FROM YOUR LIFE, FROM YOUR HOME AND ENVIRONMENT, FROM YOUR BODY! FOR GOOD!

That is the goal, target, purpose and direction you need to take with DETOX. Get your priorities, attitude and expectations real and ready and then go for it! The processes themselves are simplistic and the results immediate. You just need to recognize the importance, significance, and extent that these aspects can affect the quality of life, health and even you future and longevity and luxury quickly becomes necessity!

Where, what and how you are exposed to harmful toxins

So what about the world we live in and the things we are exposed to in the air, homes, workplace, cars, restaurants, malls, hotels, airplanes and other spaces that we frequent, find ourselves in and live, move, breathe and do in?

Some research and studies done recently, claim that there are increasing amounts and traces of these heavy metals to be found in our bloodstreams, tissue, urine etc. The experts and scientists attribute these numbers and increased incidence to what they call extensive environmental exposure. Some source examples of this might include things like:
 Treated Lumber
 Fillings (mercury) in teeth
 preservatives in vaccines
 unspecified sources
 even the foods we eat
 pesticides
 polluted air we breathe in
.. and so on.

There are numerous identifiable side effects that can occur with the processes and dynamics of detoxification, including any, some or all of the following:
 stomach upset
 skin irritation
 Safety concerns
 nausea
 kidney toxicity
 joint pain
 Headaches
 fever
 feeling faint
 extreme fatigue
 diarrhea
 cramps

We all want to avoid the harmful elements and toxins in our bodies, want to get them out, not suffer side effects of have lasting damage, impact we did not bargain on. Therefore, YOU PERSONALLY need to weigh YOUR own risk/reward, rationale and decision to DETOX, PRIOR to engaging in any of these processes to clean, clear and cleanse the body.

Whether we want to believe it or not, eventually we all have to face the music and reality! WE regularly as part of our days and lives, take, make, get, breathe, eat, absorb and more, harmful chemicals and other toxins, even heavy metals, into out bodies, whether we want to , like to or not. Some of us even being oblivious to the harmful nature of them, that they exist and that we are surrounded by them in the foods we eat, products we use, places we find ourselves in, our homes etc.

To thrive and survive in our world, YOU personally need to be prepared, plan for and have the know how, to get rid of toxic build-up within your own body and system.

There are processes, as we have clearly seen, that we can easily tap into, to get our health, balance, and toxin-free body back! YOU NEED TO TAKE CONTROL OF WHAT IS, WHAT IS GOING INTO, AND WHAT COULD GET INTO YOUR SYSTEM. YOU NEED A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND STRATEGY TO COPE WITH, DEAL WITH, AND ELIMINATE THAT WHICH IS HARMFUL TO YOU AND YOUR BODY!

Toxic build-up within your body, can cause myriads of problems, manifesting itself in areas and systems like
 intestinal
 respiratory
 colon
 neuro-chemical
 key functioning organs
… and others.

Eliminating any harmful toxins and expelling them out of your body, FOR GOOD is the answer and solution here for healthy, balanced living.

Most will argue that merely following a healthier lifestyle will get you where you need to be, but that no longer rings true. YOU WILL NEED MORE! The environment we live in can fill our bodies with contaminants we ingest, willfully, unwittingly and/or totally unawares!

Here is how the DETOX process for metals and heavy metal residue deposits and toxins work

 These DETOX elements isolate and bind with the metallic ions
 They form several strong chemical bonds
 Making it reactive and bound tight
 It becomes water-soluble
 enters the blood-stream
 Is excreted harmlessly by the natural processes and organs of the body responsible for waste management as it were.

It is also a great way of getting rid of excess iron in the blood and system. There are three ways these elements can be given to a patient suffering from heavy metals, depending on the agent and the type of poisoning:
 orally,
 intravenously
 intramuscularly

When these different elements are used in the body to deal with heavy metals, they eventually get cleared, cleaned and cleansed, flushed from the system, excreted via the gastrointestinal tract or kidneys. These processes are also effective for effects from electromagnetic input. Think about all the electric appliances and vibrations we are submitting our bodies to every day.

When it comes to natural products and foods, like onions, garlic, green foods and seaweeds, sulfur supplements like MSM or NAC the detox-type characteristics and efficiencies are undeniably effective.

Herbs like cilantro, coriander fructus, etheric oil, coriandroleum, are identified as enabling agents in these processes as well. These processes and elements combine to effectively DETOXIFY the body of any harmful elements and toxins, by effectively stimulating and increasing the renal flux and the G.I. tract, even killing bacteria such as Salmonella typhi. Extreme care needs to be taken with these processes and detox elements, as they have the potential of permanently harming the kidneys, forcing them to shut down, fail and even cause death.

Some of the more recognized therapies and detox treatments in and from this field are

Contrast Shower
Here is one description of what a detox-process, from the outside in can do for your body and wellbeing. Contrast showers are showers that alternate between hot and cold water. This is believed to boost both your immunity and circulatory systems, recovering and restoring the body to its balanced and optimal state, reducing muscles strain and soreness, less lactic acid in muscles and refreshing the skin, the biggest organ of the body, carrying away the toxins excreted while sweating
and perspiring.

Alternating the cycles of heat/cold is highly effective and the varying of temperature critical for its impact and results. A couple of minutes of hot water, followed by an intense blast of around 1 minutes of cold water, then more hot water for around two minutes and again the wake-up blast of cold. This is often also referred to as water-therapy. Exfoliating (getting rid of dead skin cells, stimulating of the circulatory system can also be combined for this mainly external type of cleansing. However, there is more to detoxifying your body that dealing with the outer skin, organs and cleaning routine enhancements.

Master Cleanse
Many times detox is used as part of a recovery strategy to get back to optimal health. Our second example the ‘master cleanse’ is not new. It dates back to the early 1940’s. Quite simply drinking a liquid-mixture of fresh lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and grade B maple syrup is suggested to help the body and systems get rid of any toxin build up in tissue, blood, organs, flushing it through the system, getting rid of waste and harmful elements left behind so to speak, after nutritional elements have been absorbed and the body got all it needed from food and fuel sources. It also holds claims to getting rid of residue and unwanted, poisonous elements, too much of a good substance (that is never good to have in the body as it throws things out of balance and can easily cause illnesses and disease, discomfort or long-term problems, damage or even breakdown or failure).

While this is often called the liquid or lemonade diet, there is no solid foods eaten for the couple of hours or days that you opt to rid your body of all that is ‘bad’. Most take up to ten days on this type of process, with limited intake to get rid of toxins and give the body time to get back to its baseline, optimal, balanced state, with no toxins or harmful chemicals, deposits, residue, build up and more.

Advocates of these types of processes lay claim to the fact that it has helped them in many ways. For example:

 Losing, controlling and maintaining weight
 increased vitality
 feeling energetic
 curing chronic diseases
 could be restrictive, unhealthy or dangerous if not done and approached with care, under supervision, informed, empowered and realistically focused.

There are numerous claims to fame and success by celebrities and many swear by its
results. It is, however, primarily NOT recommended for weight loss at all. The real
purpose and reward lies in being healthier all-round, not shedding pounds.

Oil pulling
A third type of detox process is the so-called ‘oil pulling’ or ‘oil swishing’ . Basically, the process consists of rinsing, gargling and swishing around ONE tablespoon of cooking oil (olive oil, canola oil) and then spitting it out. This is a daily routine and rids your mouth of bacteria and harmful elements. If you take to heart how much harmful components, bacteria, viruses and more live and thrive in the human mouth, (yes, YOURS TOO), three to twenty minutes of this detoxifying discipline does not seem like too much to ask!

Here is a list of ailments and problems that might be alleviated, treated effectively with these types of detox processes and actions:
 blood health and circulation
 bronchitis
 diseases of nerves, paralysis, and encephalitis
 eczema
 fights adhesion to surfaces like teeth, gums, tongue, throat
 head-aches
 heals cuts
 heart
 Insomnia
 intestines
 kidney, liver, lungs
 less formation of dental plaque
 malignant tumor growth stifled
 reducing bacterial growth
 thrombosis
 tooth ache
 ulcers and diseases of stomach
 women’s diseases
…and many more.

The Waismann Method
The Waismann Method, rapid detox processes and medical procedures, acceleration for opiate addiction weaning is a hospital, medically-supervised treatment, where medications are used to rid the body in a safe environment of these ‘pollutants’, toxic build up and drugs in the system. It will involve a physical exam and hospital admittance up to 24-48 hours prior to the treatment. The body is stabilized and brought to the ready for this ‘shock’ treatment of sorts that expedites the withdrawal, without suffering for the patient or even memories of what they have been through. There are
risks involved in this process and every case and individual is and will experience it differently. A light anesthetic in an Intensive Care Unit is administered and medications pumped through the system of the patient to get rid of opiates. It deals with the dependence issue in an effective and safe way and environment, in a shorter period of traditional detox processes. These conventional detoxification procedures are not pretty once the withdrawal kicks in and can be dangerous, even deadly if not done or overseen properly.

Most advocate that this Wiasmann detox is more effective, dignified, safe and a humane alternative therapy to break the evil cycle of addiction.

Chelation therapy
The final introductory detoxification process, we can mention here to spark interest is, the so-called chelation therapy. This is a specialist DETOX focusing in on the elimination of toxins, harmful chemicals and heavy metals from the body. If you think of lead, arsenic or mercury, you are on the right track. Procedures, measures and components used in and through these processes of cleaning, clearing and cleansing are
 zinc salt
 The calcium salt of diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid (DTPA)
 D-penicillamine
 Dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA)
 Dimercapto-propane sulfonate (DMPS)
 Dimercaprol (BAL)
 Deferoxamine
 Defarasirox
 Calcium disodium versante (CaNa2-EDTA)
 Alpha lipoic acid (ALA)
.. and others.
