"Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;...
and not today's pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man."

Detox!

Lisa Cutforth - Monday, March 30, 2009
To Detox or not to Detox that is the question! The body is designed to detoxify itself, in fact it does this constantly, through excretion, secretion, urination, exhalation and defecation. Some of the organs that are particularly vital for “cleansing” your system are your kidneys, your liver, your lungs, your lymphatic system, your colon. Sometimes the body can become overwhelmed with toxins due to our toxic lifestyles. Why not give your body a chance to detoxify itself by simplifying its work load and supporting it with these 7 easy steps over seven days. Follow these 7 steps to detox, and live simply for a week! You will feel great afterwards! Here is a Simple 7 day “detox” plan Step 1: Start by cleaning out the waste! Let’s start with the colon! Cut out the junk and simplify your digestion… Start your day with a glass of water and freshly squeezed lemon (room temperature at least or warm, not ice water!). Enjoy only fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, (soups or salads are fine), brown rice, lentils, beans, pulses, flavoured with fresh herbs and spices (ginger, garlic, chili, turmeric, chives, basil, coriander, thyme, cloves) and flaxseeds. Eat mostly raw food, and don’t have any preservatives, colourants, artificial additives, tea, coffee, sugar, yeast containing products, alcohol, drugs, or over the counter medication like pain killers, head ache tablets, no wheat, and no animal products (dairy, meat, eggs, butter included) for 7 days. You may experience headaches or nausea as a result of your system detoxing. Step 2: Assisting colon cleansing: Add a teaspoon of psyllium husk into a ¼ cup of water and drink it down (you could add a teaspoon of bentonite clay to this as well.) Do this first thing in the morning and last thing at night for the 7 days. Have a big glass of water or freshly pressed fruit juice afterwards. Step 3: Drink between 2 and 3 litres of water everyday. Drink parsley tea (bunches of fresh parsley infused in hot water), 1 per day for days 4 to 7 to help cleanse the kidneys. Step 4: If you are very toxic you may wish to supplement milk thistle and vitamin C and MSM to help support the liver and the immune system through the detox process. You could also consider taking a deworming course, if you have pets (remember to deworm the whole family at the same time.) Step 5: Walk or jog for 30 minutes at least once a day, twice a day is better, do 20 star jumps on the spot morning and evening and do dry skin brushing in long strokes towards the heart on your limbs and in circular motions on the rest of your body to assist elimination from your lymphatic system. If you can lie with your bum against the wall and your feet up for at least 5 minutes in the evening to help with lymphatic drainage. Step 6: Get rid of toxic emotions. First thing in the morning, write down a list of everything you can think of to be grateful for 5 minutes, set a timer and don’t stop. Last thing at night, dump down any grumpy or unpleasant thoughts onto paper for 5 minutes, be willing to let them go, then tear up the pages and burn them or flush them down the toilet or throw them in the rubbish bin. Meditate or sit quietly for a few minutes every day. Step 7: Have a candlelit Epsom salt bath, (either Epsom salts or sea salt in hot water) every evening. Don’t use any moisturizers or skin care products for the week, if you can only use natural shampoo, skincare etc. for at least the week of your detox).
