WHO SHOULD DEFINITELY NOT ATTEMPT DETOX ON THEIR OWN

Although there are many a great benefit to be had from these processes and procedures of ridding your body of harmful toxins, caution is the name of the game all-round! Those that should rather consult with a physician or treatment professional PRIOR to starting a DETOX, include:

 taking a PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION
 chronically ill
 compromised immune system or blood disease
 Infants, young children
 kidney or liver issue patients
 pregnant and/or nursing women
 the elderly
 those addicted to drugs or alcohol
 those suffering from a serious disease
 those who has been exposed to dangerous chemicals, heavy metals or radioactive material

Do not be blind to the risks, see the potential, promise and seize the opportunity to DETOX! Ready yourself and plan, stacking the odds in your favor to succeed and stick to your plan, reach your goal.

Manage your DETOX symptoms and manifestations as your body reaches its optimal balanced state yet again, getting rid or and expelling the toxins. This could include minor discomforts, like headaches, fatigue, queasiness and discomfort. They will pass or in some cases, yours will not even be that profound or may become severe. If you feel at any point during your detox process that you are uncomfortable or at risk, seek out the help of a medical practitioner to see you through it and/or stop giving your body time to re-adjust and change gear!

Educate and empower yourself as to what you and your family are using and putting into your bodies on a regular, daily basis and over time and choose to live healthy!

Every day use and products we are surrounded with pose dangers we are either unaware of or do not pay enough attention to – this proves you’re your system will be in serious need of periodic, initial and regular detoxification to CLEAN, CLEAR, CLEANSE, flush and rid your system or these harmful elements.

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!

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!

HERBS FOR THE LIVER

• 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.

TIPS and recommendations for choosing, using and tapping into natural or herbal supplements for DETOX and healthy living

 Be SMART about which ones you take

 Be sure to check the expiration dates to ensure potency and results

 Do not overdose or take more than the recommended amount

 DO NOT USE EXPIRED products.

 Ensure you know the source, manufacturer, contents, label

 High doses of certain elements can have negative effects on the body

 Interference and interactions with other things that you might be taking

 List the active ingredients and all other fillers, additions or other ingredients nutrients and dosage

 Look at the details on the label regarding its strength, purity, disintegration and dissolution.

 Marketing ploys, promises and packaging is not what you end up putting in your body – treat with skepticism, care and caution.

 Serving, size and storage

 Store and keep out of reach of children, non-humid and high-up is best.

 Supplements may not be suitable for all individuals, those suffering from certain illnesses.

 They are BEST taken in addition to diet and nutrients, NOT MERELY AS substitutes.

 They are not good replacements for real food.

 You need to know what and why you are taking supplements

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."

People follow the routes and rewards of detox for different reasons:
Health
Rejuvenation
Healing
Weight loss…

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
Antioxidants,
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.

WHAT DOES YOUR LIVER DO?

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.

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.
