Time for Detox

Is it time to detox?

If you’re continuously experiencing fatigue, indigestion, headaches, or body pain, then you may need to do a detox to reenergize your body. Problems like indigestion usually happen when your digestive system isn’t functioning correctly.

Here is a list of common signs and symptoms that your body needs a detox:

  • Trouble in losing weight. If you are facing difficulty in losing excess weight, then your body can be full of toxins
  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Headaches
  • Bloating
  • Skin rashes
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Difficulty in concentrating
  • White or yellow tongue
  • Puffy eyes

For centuries by many cultures around the world, including Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, detoxification has been the cleansing and nourishing of the body internally. The process would assist in removing toxins and then fueling the body with healthy nutrients to renew and achieve optimal health. Our body can eliminate toxins through the skin, kidneys, liver, intestines, lungs, and lymphatic system. If any of these systems are overworked, clogged up or compromised, then toxins cannot be filtered out properly, and every cell can be negatively affected.

A detox regime does not have to be invasive in any way. Instead, the most successful one is a regime that can be a lifestyle change incorporated daily.

Here are some DIY ‘Detox’ tips, aka ‘Lifestyle Factors’:

  • Start the day with pure water and a squeezed lemon and apple cider vinegar
  • Continue to keep hydrated throughout the day with purified water
  • Eat several servings of vegetables with every meal
  • Try a green vegetable juice with 90% vegetable and 10% fruit
  • Add some ginger to your water
  • Explore the technique of oil pulling
  • Pamper yourself to foot baths
  • Meditate as holding on to negativity or negative thoughts is toxic in of itself
  • Breathe deeply
  • Dry body brush daily before showering
  • Exercise, walk, do yoga
  • Get adequate sleep every night and go to bed on the same day that you woke up. Avoid staying awake for two days; this means if you wake at 7 a.m. and do not go to bed until 1 a.m. the next day, then you have been awake for two days.
  • It’s also important to do an inventory to determine where the toxins are coming in and replace with healthier alternatives so you can reach total wellness of mind and body..According to the Environmental Protection Agency, there are over 86,000 chemicals on their Toxic List and half are still found in Personal care products. such as shampoos, make-up, perfumes, and lotions. These toxins can be absorbed through the skin as well as breathing them in.  When your body experiences Toxic overload it can lead to a metabolic dysfunctions, weight mgmt. issues, as well as your immune, neurological and endocrine systems.
  • Take a functional medicine lab test to determine if you can detoxify and gain insight into 77 markers. This test has been invaluable to my members in reaching total wellness of mind and body. I’d recommend the Organic acid and glyphosate lab panel. If you are concerned about mold exposure then add in the Myctotox test as well.

Here are nine foods to accelerate detox:

  1. If you like tea, then sipping some organic hibiscus tea, may help with belly bloat. The flavonoids in the hibiscus plant counteract bloating by influencing how aldosterone, the hormone that regulates water and electrolytes balance, affects the body.
  2. Avocado, along with cilantro, the savory herb contains a unique blend of oils that settles an upset stomach and also helps prevent overeating.
  3. The bright-orange spice turmeric works as a potent anti-inflammatory in the liver and can significantly reduce bile duct blockage by interfering with chemical reactions involved in the inflammatory process. Wondering how to enjoy it? I mix it with daily wheatgrass, apple cider, stevia beverage, and sprinkle turmeric in. Another favorite during the cold weather is to warm unsweetened coconut milk and add turmeric and stevia!
  4. Asparagus is a natural diuretic helping flush out toxins. A study in the Journal of Food Science stated that the amino acids and minerals found in asparagus might alleviate hangover symptoms and protect liver cells against toxins.
  5. We all know that green leafy vegetables are superfoods and collard greens have an incredible ability to cleanse your system of excess cholesterol, especially when steamed. A study in the Journal of Nutrition Research compared bile acid binding capacity of steamed collard greens to Cholestyramine, cholesterol-lowering drug and collards improved the body’s cholesterol-blocking process by 13%.
  6. One of my favorite daily rituals is to start each day by drinking lemon water, which is squeezing one organic lemon into pure water. Citrus fruits are abundant in the antioxidant de-limonene, which is a powerful compound found in the peel that stimulates liver enzymes to help flush toxins from the body and gives sluggish bowels a kickstart.
  7. Wild salmon is rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and may then help to reverse arterial stiffness which inhibits the flow of cleansing blood through the arteries and to vital organs. 
  8. Beets contain a type of antioxidant called betalains that help repair and regenerate cells in the liver, the body’s primary detox center.
  9. Love those sweet potatoes! They taste great thinly sliced and baked or added to a soup or crockpot meal.
