It’s a fact that an increasing number of people, including younger generations, are becoming affected with chronic conditions such as cancer and autoimmune diseases. The human body is a system that has its weaknesses too. When its immune response is weakened, the human body becomes easily susceptible to external factors like environmental toxins, which not only change your cell DNA, but also lead to a number of physical disorders.
And, that’s not all. There’s a long list of factors that lead to genetic derangements and the most common include stress, hormone disrupters, parasites, viruses, bacteria, refined carbs and products, pesticides, heavy metals, and similar. Your mind and spirit play as important role for your overall health as your body.
The thing is your health largely depends on your immune system ability to expel toxins. This normally happens through bouts of fevers, diarrhea, and vomiting. But, if toxins remain in your body and your body is continually exposed to their effects, this will trigger an autoimmune condition.
An autoimmune disease is a disorder in which the immune system has been compromised, and causes the body to turn on itself. It’s the toxin that remains in the body that continually makes the body to give an immune response.
A diet rich in sugar, wheat, pesticides, gluten, heavy metals and GMO can easily trigger an autoimmune condition. In addition, antacids like Pepcid, Nexium, and Prilosec can also disrupt the pH balance and inhibit the release of pepsin, an enzyme responsible for protein breakdown.
This leads to protein buildup in the gut. These proteins eventually leak through the permeable gut wall and being mistaken for a foreign body, they alert the immune system. Then the body gives an immune response through inflammation.
Generally, short-term inflammations are the defense reaction of the body against foreign intruders. But, when this inflammation becomes chronic, it triggers a number of serious conditions, including:
- Blood-leukemia, lupus, hemolytic conditions
- Nerves-diabetic & peripheral neuropathy
- Muscles-fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy
- Thyroid-Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease
- Brain-MS, autism, Guillain-Barré syndrome (caused by flu shot or a virus)
- Bones-rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, polymyalgia rheumatica
- Lungs-Wegener’s granulomatosis, asthma
- GI tract/pancreas-Celiacs, IBS, Crohns, ulcerative colitis, diabetes
- Skin-eczema, psoriasis, scleroderma, vitiligo
According to allopathic medicine, weakening the immunity through immunosuppressant therapy instead of addressing the exact cause that triggers these conditions is a completely false approach. What happens in such cases is inhibiting the body’s immune reaction to foreign intruders rather than eliminating the intruders. This bypassing of the main culprit for an autoimmune condition inevitably results in a number of side effects.
Fortunately, natural medicine has plenty to offer when it comes to detoxifying the entire body and strengthening the immune system in order to prevent diseases of this kind.
Read on to find out how to detox your vital body organs and strengthen your immune system function.
Wheat, gluten, soy, dairy, processed and fried foods, and GMO can all trigger false immune responses in your body. Although many of these foods are safe to consume in their unprocessed, natural state, once refined, pasteurized or genetically modified, they become highly inflammatory. That’s why avoiding sugar, aspartame, MSG, trans fats, hydrogenated oils like canola or vegetable oil is highly recommended. Excessive caffeine and alcohol intake can also be harmful.
On the other hand, organic foods should become your priority along with healthy fats like coconut, and avocado oil, omega-3’s, olive oil, nuts and seeds, and probiotics. A Berkey filter or reverse osmosis filter can help you eliminate toxins, metals, and fluoride from your tap water. Alkaline diets, which have low sodium and high potassium content, are also highly beneficial.
The best liver cleanse comes from using burdock root, dandelion root, milk thistle, beets, Jerusalem artichokes, garlic, turmeric or curcumin, fermented foods, and castor oil packs on the abdomen. It’s important that the liver cleanse always contains ornithine. Some sorts of tea, such as tulsi and dandelion, are extremely beneficial for compete liver detox. Lugol’s iodine is another compound to be used for stimulating metabolism and liver detox.
Olive oil cleanse for liver
In suffering from gallstones, a daily regimen of carrot juice and tart green apples for one week is highly recommended as it will soften your gallstones and prevent their dislocation during the detox process. Follow this with a shot of olive oil and lemon juice and a castor oil pack at night.
A successful kidney cleanse includes using beneficial herbs such as horsetail, Flor-essence tea as well as Uva Ursi capsules, Ginger, Goldenrod tincture, Vitamin B-6, Black Cherry Concentrate, and Vegetable Glycerin. Lukewarm lemon water, magnesium, organic cranberry juice, apple cider vinegar, and Epsom salt baths can also be highly beneficial. Staying away from chemical-treated foods during the detox is highly recommended as these foods can lead to kidney failure.
Normal bowel function includes 2-3 BMs/day. To cleanse your colon of toxins, try Indian gooseberry or Triphala. A great colon and liver cleanse can be obtained with coffee enemas too. It’s also recommended to increase your intake of distilled or fluoride free water, plant based organic diet, aloe Vera water, coconut kefir, ginger, garlic, fennel, bentonite clay or activated charcoal, magnesium, and vitamin C.
The best chelators are zeolite clay and activated charcoal. Also, great natural chelators you can consider are cilantro, chlorella, and high sulfur foods like cabbage, onions, garlic and Brussels sprouts. Although you can get a professional IV chelation, be sure to avoid unnecessary vaccines which contain heavy metals.
Mercury, commonly found in tooth fillings, is a neurotoxin that can trigger autoimmune conditions, mood disorders, and brain deterioration. Finding a dentist who specializes in removing Mercury amalgams safely is highly recommended.
To effectively remove parasites from your body consider using wormwood, black walnut hull, cloves, as well as cinnamon, garlic, coconut oil, psyllium husks, bentonite clay and coffee enemas. Make sure you get organic coffee, distilled water, complete sterility, and lie on your right side, holding for 10-20 minutes.
Proper lymphatic function largely depends on movement, such as walking, yoga or any other physical activity. Deep breathing, rebounding, and dry brushing are also recommended to improve this system function. Plus, soft lymph massages are equally beneficial for removing toxins from the body. The lymphatic system is vital for your overall health as it acts as the sewer system of the body.
Your skin is the largest organ on your body. Chemical-laden lotions, makeup, deodorants or fragrances can easily compromise your hormonal balance and lead to PCOS, endometriosis, and fibroids due to their high content of parabens, BHT or other endocrine disrupters.
Infrared saunas, sweating, hot yoga, Epsom salt baths, and dry brushing are highly recommended for stimulating your lymphatic system into eliminating chemicals and toxins.
Last, but not least, regular exercise and sweating are particularly beneficial for removing toxins from the body.
As your overall health depends on the proper function of all body organs, detoxifying them every now and then is vital for maintaining good health.
