Detoxification, comment

April 6, 2011

I use massage therapy to assist with a detoxification process. This combination is enjoyed and useful by many of my clients. What type of water flush is to be used in the article Detoxification, comment is my question. I use water in multiple sessions for the colon flush, oral/gastrointestinal flush, and/or external skin flush in a shower.

Title: Detoxification, comment
I agree that we need to focus on lymph and blood also, not just the liver and colon. There are several ways to accomplish this such as massage therapy with large water flush afterwards to help with the toxins that are mobilized during the massage. There are also many botanicals that work on restoring/cleaning the blood. Even yet another way that is commonly forgotten is through the skin. I always become alarmed when someone tells me they don’t sweat much anymore. I get this mental image that everything is blocked up inside not just pores. I always tell them they need to promote sweating to help rid themselves of toxins, especially plastic and dioxins that build up so much from our environment. I further recommend that they first off stop using anti-perspirants that stop this process. I also recommend they try botanicals and hydrotherapy that promote diuresis and diaphoresis like dandelion and nettles and increase their water intake tremendously. If that does do enough there is the far infrared sauna with high temperatures that can be tolerated by even clients with lung and heart disease and promote the removal of many toxins. Of course we are not to forget ways to rid our bodies of heavy metals that can build up and cause illness like the use of increased fiber to decrease transit time in the gut and chelating agents both orally (if not severe or IV EDTA for those with severe heavy metal poisoning. All in all, detoxification warrants our attention to assure our bodies are functioning at optimal levels and to prevent future illness with the ever increasing toxic load from our environment.

Title: Detoxification
Detoxification refers to the elimination of poisons or toxins. Detoxification programs include a vast variety of treatments aimed at getting rid of body toxins and improving health. Many organs in the body such as liver, lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, and skin all work to eliminate toxins that we take in. These organs detoxify toxins in a perfect manner. However, the huge amounts of today’s environmental contaminants attacking the immune system and it would be too tough to challenge for these detoxifying organs to eliminate the toxins and do their jobs. The toxins remain in our bodies and accumulating each day.

When the food we eat and the water we drink leave the stomach, they enter the small intestine where they mix with digestive enzymes. These enzymes break down the food’s fats, proteins, and carbohydrates into simple compounds. Some of these simple compounds go to the liver to be metabolized. Others are carried away by the lymph, an important part of the immune system. What’s left travels on through the large intestine, or colon, where water is removed and bowel movements are formed.

But if toxins in the food we eat and the water we drink cannot be destroyed by the digestive enzymes, or detoxified by the liver, or eliminated by the immune system, they begin to build up. As these toxins accumulate, they will affect every part of our body: slow our metabolism, rob us of energy, reduce our immunity, and can even lead to serious chronic illness. Therefore, the body needs a serious method of cleansing system.

Most detoxification supplements focus only on the liver and colon. That’s because significant amounts of our body’s own detoxification method happens in these important digestive organs. However, the only way to make sure that detoxification is truly successful, is to cleanse the whole body. Therefore, the detoxification of the blood and lymph considered very important. These two organs considered very important in nourish and protect the liver, colon, and every other organ, tissue, and cell. If toxins are present in blood or lymph, every organ, tissue, and cell will be exposed to these toxins and contaminants, too.

Detoxifying the colon and liver without cleansing the blood and lymph is considered nearly nothing. Therefore, in order to have the best result for detoxification program both organs and the blood and the lymph system must be in attention for detoxification plan. In this way we expect that the body working in its best performance.
