We eat fiber-poor, nutrient-poor diets, while being chronically dehydrated and stressing our bodys to the limit until we feel tired, sluggish, or we start having other ailments. A detoxification program should be about having good energy, improved mood, and allowing your body to change naturally as you support it.
The First Rule: Stop the Exposure
Limiting your exposure to toxic food & chemicals, toxic relationships, and toxic thoughts, can be the first step before doing anything else. If you are still exposing yourself in the workplace, in the home, or an the environment, you can harm the body by following a detoxification program if there is still an exposure present.
The Second Rule: Optimize body’s ability to Eliminate Toxins
The body excretes via the the following organ systems:
Skin (skin cells, sweat, hair, nails) – therapies like sauna therapy can be helpful.
Liver & Digestive Tract via bile, and the microflora or bacteria
Kidneys – These filters that naturally keep your blood from building up with waste by products of metabolism, are key to keeping a healthy blood pressure, and urinary tract
Lungs – We breath ever second of the day, and actually blow off excess CO2, and other chemicals that are expressed through the lungs. Preventing exposure, and maintaining a healthy breath practice also helps balance the nervous system and relax the mind.
Breast milk, Tears, Saliva, etc.
We don’t use these routes of elimination nearly enough on a regular basis, or often one area is neglected, and require another area to take on some of that detoxifying burdon. Developing a plan that maximizes all of these areas, helps eliminate different types of chemicals, metabolites, and optimizes your body’s ability to handle the naturally and unnatural exposures you may or may not know you are encountering.
The Third Rule: Hydration
Good clean water is the tool that helps facilitate the body’s ability to move your circulation, and help facilitate your body’s ability to move various nutrients and waste products around in the body.
The Fourth Rule: Move the Body
Moving the body, helps facilitate movement of core muscles and postural muscles that facilitate improved bowel movements, improves circulation, and helps encourage the body to sweat and express toxins through the skin and breathing. consider following an exercise program at the Olympic Athlethic Club across the street or biking along the Burke Gillman trail in Seattle.
