What does it mean to detox? How safe is detoxing? Have you even thought about what the body is doing when you are initiating a detox?
Could all the man-made powders for detoxing be irritating the crap out of your intestinal lining and aggravating the liver and gut? That’s not a detox reaction. That’s is just plain hurting and over taxing the body.
Removing processed food is a way to detox.
Safe detoxing is about lowering the fats in the diet, including good fats and oils, nuts and seeds, cheese, butter, and CHICKEN, yes, chicken has fat…animal proteins have fat. You can’t really cleanse on a deep level with fats in the diet.
When you lower the fats you start to cleanse, you start to heal. Your body then finds a rhythm and starts to heal, without it being a shock to the system. You won’t get sick if you do it right and then if you want to do something more radical you can and your body will be in a good place for it.
If you even think about detoxing and ingesting all these powders and formulas on the market, please think about your LIVER first and have some respect for your liver. Please. It’s better to support and attend to the liver versus an intense detox that can hurt the liver.
Fruits and vegetables cleanse us…
If you are doing an intense detox and get “detox” symptoms…it might be that you have activated a viral load or activated something in the body from the harsh detox you are on. The objective is the cleanse gently.
When you do a harsh cleanse or detox, your liver will dispel toxins, BUT, BUT, BUT it has to bring the toxins back in. Literally it will bring the toxins back in to protect you and the kidneys. Then it will learn (from your teaching) that it can’t let anything out again. The liver will then shut down from you forcing it to release toxins and it backs off because it knows it will hurt you to release all those toxins that fast.
You have to respect the body and detox slowly and gently. When you are doing a cleanse also be sure you have some downtime to rest. Let the body detox and heal…don’t run around like a crazy person and expect the body to cleanse and detox while you are exerting all that energy for errands and other things. You will actually HINDER your detox if you do to much while trying to detox.
Detox symptoms can be a funny taste in the mouth (maybe a metal taste), a mild headache, being irritable, sleeping better, sleeping worse, eyes tearing up, spasms in the body, maybe some loose stools, little bloating, and then those subside. You will feel better and stronger!
Be sure to eat enough food (energy) of the right things so your body has energy to detox.
When you shock the body the immune system CRASHES. People doing a cleanse that already have aches and pains, IBS, gluten issues, headaches, migraines, dizziness, autoimmune, etc…you shock your body and can get a re-ignition of shingles or viral infections and more.
Treat your body with respect so it will respect you back!!!!
