Detoxify Your Body
Abridged Version (part 2)
A Ten-Day Colon Cleanse
There are many ways to do a colon cleanse and the 10-day cleanse is a good one for beginners. For the first seven days, eat only organic and plant-based foods and drink fresh carrot/apple/beet juice, along with two ounces of wheat grass juice every day. Also, take a colon cleanse herbal supplement every day. Starting on Day 4, replace dinner with bentonite clay and psyllium husk drinks. From Day 8 through Day 10, eliminate all food and instead alternate between the herbal supplements and the bentonite clay and psyllium husk drinks throughout the day, concluding with an enema. Continue to drink the fresh wheat grass juice every day. On Day 11, eat an organic salad to break your fast. Also, take probiotic supplements to jump-start your colon. You’ll be astounded by how much stuff came out of you and how great you feel because of it.
Parasite & Worm Cleanse
Systemic parasites and worms are a greater problem than most people think, including medical doctors. And getting rid of them isn’t easy. Some symptoms of these organisms include a voracious appetite, weakness, a withered yellow look, abdominal pain, diarrhea, gas, constipation, cravings for sweet or burnt foods, grinding teeth while sleeping, and a host of others. Worms and parasites enter our bodies in a variety of ways, but one of the most common is through uncooked and undercooked meats. We may also be exposed through our pets. Some herbs and supplements used to fight parasites and worms include black walnut, pumpkin seeds, wormwood, cloves, garlic, raw onions, raw rice, colloidal silver, prickly ash bark and thyme, to name a few. You can find parasite cleanse products online and at natural food stores.
The Lemonade Diet
Natural Living advocate Stanley Burroughs developed the Lemonade Diet, which is also known as the Master Cleanse. The lemonade diet consists of drinking fresh-squeezed organic lemons, water, organic maple syrup and organic cayenne pepper for ten days, without food. Additionally, a daily salt-water flush and / or an herbal laxative tea are advised. The lemons provide citrus juice for cleansing properties, the pure maple syrup supplies numerous minerals and vitamins, while the cayenne pepper not only provides many B and C vitamins, but also loosens mucous and warms the body. The salt-water flush and the herbal tea help the colon evacuate unwanted debris. Approximately 6 to 12 glasses of lemonade are consumed per day. After the third day or so the digestive system shuts down and the body goes about the business of removing toxins. On the 11th day the fast is broken with fresh organic orange juice.
The lymphatic system is part of our internal “garbage-disposal” system and is also part of our immune system. The lymph system transports nutrients to cells and removes waste from cells. Unlike blood, lymph fluid can dig deep into tissue to remove toxic waste such as acids and mucous. Lymph glands then collect the waste material and dump it into the bloodstream for delivery to the colon, kidneys, lungs or skin for elimination. Unfortunately, this valuable system is often severely neglected. When not properly cared for, the lymph system can be overloaded with toxins, and then health is compromised. However, there is a simple treatment you can do to help your lymphatic system function properly, and that’s exercise. Daily exercise, especially bouncing on a mini-trampoline, will stimulate the lymph fluid and help eliminate harmful toxins from the body.

Apple Cider Vinegar Cleanse
Pure, organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar has been used successfully for thousands of years to cleanse and purify the body of toxins. Organic apple cider vinegar has numerous vitamins, minerals and trace minerals, especially potassium, which aids in the cleansing and healing process. With potassium, which is the master mineral, toxic poisons are literally placed “in solution” so they can be flushed out of the body. Plus, apple cider vinegar is a natural antibiotic that fights germs, bacteria, mold and viruses. Drinking a few teaspoons a day will be of great benefit and will aid in the detoxification process, making it an excellent compliment to the colon cleanse. Just be sure to get pure, organic and unfiltered apple cider vinegar, found in the natural foods section at supermarkets or at natural foods stores, because the highly processed varieties do not have these health benefits.
Chelation therapy is the preferred method of removing heavy metalssuch as cadmium, lead, mercury, and arsenicfrom the body and the brain. Chelation therapy involves the use of substances that can bind to a toxic metal and then help remove it from the body. Chelating agents can be taken orally, through the skin, or as an IV drip. The phrase “chelation therapy” usually refers to the use of a few substances specifically designed for heavy metal detoxification. The most popular are EDTA, DMSA, and DMPS, which are acronyms for synthetic amino acid substances. Diagnosis and use of these chelating agents must be performed by a health care professional. However, they are highly effective and if you suspect that you or your child has neurological challenges and/or behavioral issues, including Attention Deficit Disorder and Autism, chelation therapy is strongly recommended.
Sometimes we can neglect the largest organ in the body, which is our skin. The skin is considered the third kidney because it expels toxins, which is why you want to keep it in good working order. Keep your skin properly functioning by using a stiff, natural bristle brush to exfoliate dead cells. This process will allow your pores to breathe and eliminate properly. Another popular way of removing dead cells and promoting skin health is through a sugar or salt scrub at your local spa. While there, you may want to relax in the sauna or steam room to perspire toxins out of your body. And epsom salt baths, along with sea salt and pure essential oils, is a relaxing way to draw toxins out of your body. A number of manufacturers sell pre-packaged mixtures that you can add to your bath water, and they can be found online or at natural food stores.
