With the harmful chemicals flying around, your body is in a constant state of toxicity. Those toxins are present all over our environments, where we ingest them from the air, through food, or through materials we use for cosmetics.
Thankfully, such harms are removed from the body in natural ways, such as through sweating and urination. Regardless, the natural body mechanisms may not be enough to clean our bodies.
Thus, it comes necessary to understand the toxins affecting our body in-depth, for proper disposal.
There are 2 types of toxins in the body. The first type is naturally removed from the bloodstream by the kidneys. Those are called water soluble toxins.
The 2nd variant are a little difficult to remove. Those are called fat-soluble toxins.
Those toxins are only removable from the body when they are turned into water-soluble ones. This is where the liver comes in, since it is highly essential for the cleansing process. The liver stores those toxins when it receives them after digestion, to ensure that it doesn’t reach the blood, brain, and body cells.
Because of that, the toxins can stay in the body for very long periods of time. To ensure that this doesn’t happen, it is necessary to regulate levels of stress experienced by individual, in addition to the food that is being consumed.
When digesting food, there are 2 forms of fats that you’ll see in the body. Those would be nutritional, and toxic. They come from food, and are found mixed in the stomach, which leads to the small intestines. They are in essence emulsified in the small intestines by bile cells coming from the liver.
The small intestines are responsible for the absorption of food. Thus, they need to differentiate between the toxic fats and the healthy fats, separating both before absorption. This is the function of the body’s villi, which when working properly, can detox the body from those toxins before they reach the blood.
If those pathways found in villi that detox the body don’t work properly, then toxins won’t be properly expelled from the body.
Examples of those toxic fats include:
- Preservatives and Additives
- Heavy Metals
- Food additives
- Pollutants and Environmental Compounds
The Lymphatic Tissue Associated with the Gut
This is called GALT in short, which is the portion of the lymphatic system found around the intestinal regions. After the villi separate the good and bad toxins, the good fats are sent to the lymphatic system on a route to the liver. The liver processes those fats for the production of hormones, brain cells and skin cells, and cholesterol. In essence, those fats are processed until they turn bad, in which case the liver discards them.
Congestions occurring in the lymphatic system has a negative effect of the absorption of good fats and disposal of bad ones.
The following is a checklist to diagnose a congested GALT system…
Congested GALT Symptoms
- Skin irritation
- Increased weight around the belly area
- Joint stiffness
- Hand and Foot swelling
- Breast swelling
- Irregular headaches
Your gut’s health can be shaped by many factors, the most important of those being stress levels and a bad diet. This harms the intestinal villi, as they tend to dry out fast when there is a long phase of constipation. As a result, there is production of mucus in order to remove the dryness, which leads to bloating of the bowels. The issue of mucus is easily uncovered if you have bowel problems, as you will find that quickly in your stool. Visit your doctor if that is your situation.
Now how does this related to toxins? Well, dried villi cannot separate toxins properly. The same thing applies to the excessive mucus increase, which obstructs the functions of villi.
It also causes problems for bile that helps digest fats. When the digestive tract is over-triggered in mucus production, bile does not function properly in the breakdown of toxins. This leads to both bile and harmful toxins being ingested by the liver. This issue also occurs when you lack enough fibers in your diet, where the liver will take in up to 94% of the produced bile.
Congestion of the Liver
Too many toxins can cause liver congestions for long periods of time, leading to a weak organ. It won’t be able to function properly in the breakdown of toxins. Additionally, those toxins can transform into neurotoxins overtime, getting stored in the brain. This will create a variety of health issues.
Elimination of Toxins.
The body should be detoxed through fat removal. Thus, improving the lifestyle, losing weight, reducing stress levels and having a healthy diet are important to this process.
Long Story Short.
If you end up suffering from loose excretions, bowel mucus, or constant constipation, then you may have issues with the pathways of your guts. Additionally, your body may need to be detoxified. You’ll notice this a lot as a result of pain that comes from eating specific types of foods.
Thus, taking care of the food that you eat will aid you in addressing the problems of body toxins. You should attempt to eat often the following foods, which will aid in the cleansing process.
- Grape fruit
- Green tea
- Olive oil
- Lime fruits
- Green vegetables
Treatment for Liver/ Cleaning the Gall Bladder
- 1 big grapefruit or 3 lemons
- Epsom salt (4 tablespoons)
- Virgin Olive Oil (1/2 cup)
- Apple juice
Before the start of this treatment, you should prep your body up a bit. Consume apple juice frequently, 4-5 days before beginning treatment. You should consume 8 ounces every 2-3 hours.
1st day of the treatment
Begin with a small breakfast, which should be fat free. This should force the accumulation of bile in the liver, causing pressure.
At 2pm the same day
The Epsom sale should be mixed in a jar with 3 cups of water. It should be refrigerated. Any food intake should be avoided after 2PM.
Consume ¾ a cup of the mix from your jar.
At 8 pm
Take another ¾ of the mixture. Don’t do anything after that, where you’re supposed to lie down and rest (preferably sleep).
Take another jar and the olive oil to it. Add in the lemons or grapefruit’s juice through a tight squeeze. You can use a fork to take out the pulp. Thus, ¾ of the juice should be mixed with the olive oil. You should keep the lid shut while shaking properly.
At 10 pm
Drink the entire mixture in the span of 5 minutes. Lie down on your right side, and bend your legs so that your knee is pointing to your chin. You can fall asleep in that position if you wish, just as long as you do not move.
The next morning
After waking up, take another ¾ cup of the Epsom salt mix and go back to sleep. The remaining salts should be consumed within 2 hours.
From there, simply wait to hours before consuming anything. You can start with fluids after that, slowly moving to fruits.
