Detoxification of the body is vital in order to maintain or to return to full health. The body eliminates toxins through the liver, kidneys, colon, lungs, lymph, and skin. In an increasingly toxic world, cleansing and detoxifying the body is critical to allow the body to heal itself. Remember that you are the creator of your health and the healer of your dis-ease. The body remakes itself every moment. Red blood cells replenish themselves every four months. Your liver regenerates itself in six weeks, your skin in one month. The lining of your stomach every five days, your DNA every two months. Your bones build a whole new skeleton in three months, and your brain rebuilds itself in one year. Your entire body remakes itself in less than two years. You could say that every day is a new opportunity to build a new you. The body’s wisdom heals itself if you give it the right tools. The most effective tools are the tools of nature (food, herbs, homeopathics, yoga, meditation). Detoxification of your body naturally gives you the opportunity to regenerate and repair your body safely.
As part of your evaluation, we assess the organs of elimination, including liver, colon, kidneys, lungs, lymph, and skin. When there is inflammation in the blood due to toxins that accumulate from our food, water, and air, often the liver is the first to be affected. There are many techniques available to detox gently and naturally including hydrotherapy, enema, herbs, clays, baths, sauna, rebounding, enemas, juicing, herbal tinctures, MSM, ALA, glutathione (lyposomal), vitamin C (lyposhperic), turmeric spices, etc. Drinking enough water (eg. lemon water for liver) to flush out toxins is important since most people are dehydrated. Fasting for short periods is also a natural way to cleanse the body and boost the immune system.
