Secrets of Detoxification

Note from Carolyn:
Detoxification is an important function of our bodies. One way that is not mentioned is to keep your bowels moving freely. In our house we do this through the use of good plant enzyme and detoxification products. The combination keeps things moving, but also pulls toxins from other parts of our bodies. In addition to these we use an ionic foot bath, and this next weekend we are shopping for an infrared sauna.

Do you feel sluggish and low on energy? Toxic substances are all around us and today you'll learn how to detoxify your body and experience vibrant health.

Because of our modern lifestyle, you're exposed to more toxins than your body is designed to handle. The air you breathe, the water you drink and the food you eat may contain toxic chemicals. And if waste builds up, we get sick. It stands to reason, then, that detoxification should be your first step to a healthier you. Try the following five tips and this delicate process will put you on the fast track to a better sleep, consistent energy, clear skin, healthy organs, more clarity and a revved-up sex drive:

Fix your gut. Did you know that 70 percent of your immune power resides in your digestive tract? Unfortunately, because of our daily exposure to toxins, our intestinal health is under massive attack. Needless to say, you don't want that to happen. Eat real food rich in antioxidants and fiber, take probiotics and stay away from pesticides, preservatives, refined sugar and antibiotics.

Hydrate. "Drink enough water!" You've heard it a million times - and with a good reason. Each one of us is made up of over 70 percent water and that's why we need to drink enough fluids in order to help acid wastes flow out. And not just any fluids - remember that if you don't filter your water, your body will experience the negative results.

Detox your mind and spirit. Detoxification is not just about what you drink or eat - it's about what you think, too! Put some time aside to relax deeply every day to inhibit sympathetic nervous activity. Try meditation and deep breathing and replace online surfing with real-world activities. You'll feel more focused and enjoy a steady supply of energy.

Get moving. Sooner or later, your tissue will suffocate in their own waste products if you don't exercise regularly. So move your body (at least 35 minutes a day) and let your blood and lymphatic circulation do their job.

Try sauna. If you're walking around with toxins in your tissues, you'll never get a skin that glows. Fortunately, you can always utilize sauna to induce sweating and stimulate a deep cleansing process. The sauna heat releases both chemical and heavy metal toxins under the skin so that they can be purged through respiration - along with various other waste materials. As a result, you'll experience a level of renewal that is hard to surpass.

Detoxification is as invaluable for our health as the beating of the heart. Maximizing your body's detoxification capacity will soon bring a healthy domino effect, allowing you to take charge of your own health and well-being.
