Drink plenty of water, juice, gargle in salads and laxatives, with an enema, colonic irrigation and detox fasting to bring you into shape.
The word ‘detox’ is being heard more than ever. Mushroom Spa and Fitness Center offer special detox diets and programs. Promises of ‘detox’ include instant sanitation or system cleansing (literally such as washing away your sins), weight loss and even the magical cure of various ailments.
Detoxification refers to a treatment protocol designed to help the body rid itself of waste and toxins. The body excretes toxins through various systems, including the lungs, kidneys, skin, and colon. A key factor in liver detoxification. Its protective enzymes can oxidize and inactivate toxic compounds so that they can be excreted more easily. Some sensitive individuals lack important detoxifying enzymes, which makes them vulnerable to common drugs and toxins.
Drinking plenty of water helps the kidneys to work efficiently to cleanse the blood and excrete wastes. The average amount needed to urinate adequately is about 2-2 ½ liters and can vary for individuals, seasons and activities. Excessive amounts may not help.
Stimulant laxatives can damage the nerve cells in the colon wall, reduce the force of contraction and increase the tendency to constipation. Thus, strong laxatives can be reversed.
Strategies such as enema and colonic irrigation have considerable potential for damage. The procedure can be very uncomfortable, as the presence of the tube can induce severe cramps and pain. If the equipment is not adequately disinfected during treatment, germs from the large intestine can be transmitted to others.
Fasting for detoxification or weight loss is questionable. While it is wise to balance excess and enjoyment on routine days, fasting as a way to detoxify does not really help, especially when eaten after fasting.
What really works is regular healthy eating and living habits, non-stop fasting and a special detox diet for a few days instead.
A good diet should emphasize complete, minimally processed foods, including fruits and vegetables, and provide adequate antioxidants, including vitamins C, E, copper, manganese, selenium, and zinc, which are essential for the body’s detoxification enzymes to function optimally. Foods like essential fatty acids like oats, amla, aloe vera, alpha-alpha sprouts, yogurt, garlic, mushrooms may be good choices. The burden of pesticides can be reduced by eating organic products and washing and peeling fruits and vegetables.
