Chronic conditions, autoimmune diseases, and cancer are becoming increasingly common, and, worst of all, there’s a growing number of young people affected. Excessive exposure to environmental toxins is considered the main culprit for these illnesses, all of which occur as a result of genetic imbalances.
Other risk factors include stress, hormone disrupters, parasites, viruses, bacteria, as well as sugar, refined carbs, highly processed foods, emulsifiers, pesticides, heavy metals, and similar.
The immune system is brilliantly constructed to be able to expel toxins with fevers, diarrhea, and vomiting. Yet, if a rather silent toxin is continually exposed to the system, it will lead to an autoimmune condition.
An autoimmune disorder occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys healthy body tissue by mistake. The toxins inside the body continue to trigger the immune system.
In fact, a number of autoimmune disorders are caused by the diet rich in sugar, wheat, gluten, GMO, pesticides, and heavy metals, which prompt distention and pH imbalances.
Moreover, acid blockers including Pepcid, Nexium, Prilosec or various diets can raise the pH higher than 3, thus stopping the release of pepsin, which is essential for protein breakdown.
Consequently, these excess proteins leak through the permeable gut wall, thus alerting the immune system, which identifies them as foreign bodies. Inflammation, which is the defense reaction of the body, is also common at this point. Although normally short-term, inflammations can cause chronic conditions.
Some commonly known autoimmune conditions include:
– 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 rheumatic – Lungs-Wegener’s granulomatosis, asthma – GI tract/pancreas-Celiacs, IBS, Crohns, ulcerative colitis, diabetes
– Skin-eczema, psoriasis, scleroderma, vitiligo
Allopathic medicine suggests that immunosuppression or reducing the activation and efficacy of the immune system instead of identifying the cause is more beneficial when treating these diseases. An example of this is Humira or Prednisone. But, this approach must be considered seriously prior to treatment because, in this case, the body’s natural response to a foreign body is inhibited. In fact, what you’re doing is addressing the result rather than attacking the root cause. This eventually brings a side- effects on its own.
What proves to be more effective in the treatment of these conditions is using natural remedies to cleanse your entire body of toxins and strengthen your immune system thus enabling it to fight off diseases of any kind.
Here’s how to detox all body organs and boost your immune system:
You should avoid consuming food products, such as wheat, gluten, dairy, processed and fried foods, all kinds of GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) and focus on organic foods only. You may know that many of these foods are not inflammatory at all in their unprocessed and natural state. But, the cause of the refining, pasteurizing and genetic modification, they are now disease-causing foods.
So, you should definitely avoid sugar, aspartame, MSG, trans fats, hydrogenated oils, like canola or vegetable oil. You should avoid consuming alcohol and caffeine in excessive amounts, as well.
It would be of help if you keep a food elimination journal.
On the other hand, you should consume healthy fats like coconut, avocado, omega-3’s, olive oil or nuts and seeds, and probiotics. Buy a Berkey filter or reverse osmosis filter to remove birth control, toxins, metals, and fluoride from your tap water. Alkaline diets can be of great help- they are low in sodium and high in potassium foods.
You can use burdock root, dandelion root, milk thistle, beets, Jerusalem artichokes, garlic, turmeric or curcumin, fermented foods, and castor oil packs on the abdomen to pull out toxins from your body. Omithine should always be a part of the liver cleanse. The liver is also supported by some sorts of tea, such as tulsi and dandelion. Lugol’s iodine is also supportive of metabolism and liver detox.
Olive oil cleanses for liver
If you want to soften your gallstones and to prevent them become dislodged while you are in the detox process, you should drink carrot juice and eat tart green apples for a week. Then, take a shot of olive oil with lemon juice and do a castor oil pack at night.
These herbs are especially beneficial for kidney cleansing: horsetail, Flor-essence tea along with Uva Ursi capsules, Ginger, Goldenrod tincture, Vitamin B-6, Black Cherry Concentrate, and Vegetable Glycerin. Other methods can also be very helpful for flushing your kidneys: lukewarm lemon water, magnesium, organic cranberry juice, apple cider vinegar, and Epsom salt baths. Foods treated with pesticides should largely be avoided as these chemicals cause kidney failure.
Regular bowel movements (for example 2-3 times a day) are essential for keeping your colon free of toxins. Indian gooseberry or Triphala is an excellent colon cleanse as well as coffee enemas. It’s also advisable to drink plenty of distilled or fluoride-free water, aloe Vera water, consume plant-based organic diet, coconut kefir, ginger, garlic, fennel, bentonite clay or activated charcoal to bind & remove toxins, magnesium, and vitamin C.
Zeolite clay and activated charcoal are great chelators. Furthermore, cilantro, chlorella, high sulfur foods like cabbage, onions, garlic and brussels sprouts are amazing natural chelators. You can get a professional IV chelation. Also, avoid unnecessary vaccines which contain heavy metals.
What’s more, mercury is not safe, as it is a neurotoxin and can lead to autoimmune conditions, mood disorders, and mental degradation. Hence, you should see a biologic dentist who specializes in removing Mercury amalgams safely.
The most important “tools” in this type of cleansing are wormwood, black walnut hull, cloves, cinnamon, garlic, coconut oil, psyllium husks, bentonite clay and coffee enemas. It’s extremely important for you to get organic coffee, distilled water, complete sterility and lie on your right side for at least 20 minutes.
This is the sewer system of the body, but it does not have a pump like the heart. Therefore, for a proper lymphatic movement, you need to be physically active, walk, practice yoga. Also, deep breathing, rebounding, and dry brushing is other excellent methods for the same cause. Lymph massage can remove toxins from the body through soft massage.
Aside from your internal organ, your skin absorbs a lot of toxins in the form of parabens, BHT or other endocrine disrupters through regular use of body lotions, makeup, deodorants or fragrances. These can trigger hormone misbalance, PCOS, endometriosis, and fibroids.
Other methods to stimulate your lymph system into removing poisons and toxins from your body include infrared saunas, sweating, hot yoga, Epsom salt baths, and dry brush.
Doing regular exercise and sweating is also highly advisable as a lot of toxins are eliminated through sweat. Organic toiletries should be used instead of synthetic ones. And, make sure you ingest sufficient amounts of D vitamin as there’s been mounting evidence that vitamin D prevents breast and prostate cancer.
Taking proper care of your body is essential to maintain proper function of all body organs, which in turn results in good overall health. And, to keep your organs working properly, it’s important to detoxify regularly.
