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.
