How often have you felt exhausted lately, lacking in energy, bloated? Have you noticed dark circles under your eyes? Is it hard for you to lose weight? Do you feel on the verge of collapsing?
One of the common reasons for these phenomena are toxins that accumulate in those systems of the body that are responsible for eliminating toxins – the liver, the gall bladder and the kidneys.
This time of the year is an ideal time for toxic cleansing, which will result in renewal and give a push to weight loss. You will have less weight and renewed energy for the summer days ahead.
Effective detox requires giving the body a rest from the daily burden that has gone on for years.
The liver is the largest mechanism for breaking down toxins in the body. The liver filters the blood and produces and excretes bile juices. The role of the bile is the digestion of fats and the elimination of toxins through the digestive system. This regulates the metabolism of toxins, neutralizes them and eliminates them.
Medications, pesticides, preservatives, chemicals in the air, in cigarette smoke and in almost everything else to which we are exposed in the modern world end up in the liver. Thus, the liver works very hard and overtime in order to eliminate the waste. Some of the toxins are eliminated through the anatomical systems; others accumulate in the liver and affect its normal functioning and that of other systems as
well. This is the same as debris that accumulates on the filter of the air conditioning system in our home, which as we know has a direct influence on its efficiency and requires periodic cleaning.
Many of the symptoms that we experience as a normal part of our lives, such as weight gain, digestive problems, skins problems, headaches and migraines, mood shifts, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and others are related to the toxins in our bodies.
There are many ways to eliminate toxins: Some are intensive, others less extreme. My extensive clinical experience has shown that methods need not be drastic and my extensive clinical experience has shown that methods need not be drastic and that those which most of anyone can tolerate can work quite well and can significantly reduce the symptoms described above.
The diet for detoxification is primarily natural, vegetarian and based on monotonous foods like rice, which is a neutral and antiallergenic food, and foods that are high in chlorophylls. These activate the intestines, assist in eliminating heavy metals and other toxins from the body, help enrich the blood with oxygen and cleanse the liver of problematic materials so that its mechanisms can work effectively.
It is important to follow a specific mild plan.
