We live in a toxic world, and its only getting worse, as more and more man-made synthetic chemicals and toxins are dumped into the environment.
Toxins make us sick, and they also make us fat.
Chemicals and toxins that accumulate in the body in the liver and kidneys, can trigger food allergies, headaches, inflammation, and chronic illnesses like diabetes and high blood pressure.
It's no surprise that studies have shown that the higher the levels of toxins in the body, the higher the risk of diabetes and obesity.
That's why many people fail to lose weight despite exercising regularly and dieting. Toxins prevent the body from releasing fat cells.
According to the medical establishment there's no cure for chronic illnesses such as diabetes and autoimmune conditions.
I'm here to tell you that that's false. These chronic conditions can improve and heal.
Without Detoxifying first, losing weight can be dangerous
FAT CELLS SERVE AN IMPORTANT PURPOSE. FAT CELLS NOT ONLY STORE FAT, THEY ALSO STORE TOXINS.
Normally the liver and colon are able to effectively remove toxins from the body, but, if the liver and colon are clogged up, then they cant do their job effectively. In other words, if your normal detoxification pathways are blocked, then fat cells will provide a temporary solution.
BUT THE PROBLEM IS THAT IF YOU DONT DETOX THEN THE BODY WILL HOLD ONTO THE FAT CELLS, PREVENTING YOU FROM LOSING WEIGHT.
In addition to weight loss, all of the symptoms listed above can be alleviated if not eradicated completely if a person undergoes detoxification followed by diet and lifestyle changes.
HOW TO DETOX
STEP 1: TROW OUT THE JUNK
Every day we accumulate toxins. Some of the toxin exposure is from the air we breathe and the water we drink, but a lot of them make their ways into our bodies through the food we eat. And our diet will also determine whether we have the nutrients and necessary to be able to detox.
We are exposed to chemicals in our environment, heavy metals (from fish, dental work, or vaccines), nitrates in meats, bleaching agents in chicken, preservatives in our foods, pesticides on produce, and one of the biggest offenders: prescription and non-prescription medications which clog the liver.
In addition, toxins are produced in the body when we eat acidic or sugary foods.
One of the biggest causes of acidity and toxins in the body is the consumption of animal proteins like meat, chicken or fish.
Farmed fish are pumped full of antibiotics and pesticides, and wild fish are full of heavy metals and chemicals from our contaminated oceans.
While detoxifying its important to avoid coffee and chocolate which tax the adrenal glands and cause dehydration.
Trans fats clog up the body and disrupt cell function particularly in the brain, as well as clog up the arteries, leading to heart disease.
Trans fats are in 99% of all processed foods in some form or other even if the label says 0 trans fats (theres an easy way for companies to get around labeling laws).
Trans fats are also labeled as partially hydrogenated oils, vegetable oil, and vegetable shortening.
Avoid trans fats while detoxing and in general.
Step 2: EAT HEALTHY
After you've thrown out the toxic foods, its time to focus on healthy healing foods. Eat as many vegetables as you can from all colors of the rainbow. Fruits specifically berries are full of antioxidants. Greens like kale, cilantro, dandelion greens, and parsley are detoxifying add them to your smoothies or juices.
Fresh juicing with lots of green vegetables is great for removing toxins.
Beets, carrots and celery also help with detoxing the liver.
Replace all refined flours and breads with wholegrain ancient grain breads.
