If you want to
reduce the toxins that are already in
your body, the best thing you can do is
give your body's natural detoxification
system the tools it needs. Here are some
ways to do that:
What exactly is
body's natural and constant process of
eliminating poisons or toxins through
the liver, kidneys, colon, lymph and
skin. Although our bodies do it
naturally every day, we do sometimes
need an extra step to flush our
systems. Through detoxification, we
can successfully assist the body to
eliminate dangerous toxins, chemicals,
metals, parasites and other unwanted
Basically, detoxification means
cleaning the blood. It does this
mainly by removing waste from the
blood in the liver, where toxins are
processed for elimination. It's all
about cleaning and nourishing the body
from the inside out. By removing and
eliminating toxins, detoxifying can
help protect you from disease and
renew your ability to maintain optimum
If the toxins we consume cannot be
destroyed by our digestive system,
detoxified by the liver, or eliminated
by the lymph system (an important part
of our immune system), they begin to
build up. As they accumulate, they
start to affect the body which can
result in slow metabolism, low energy,
reduced immunity, and can lead to
serious chronic diseases.
A detox cleans out body waste
deposits. After a cleanse, when the
body starts rebalancing and energy
levels rise, people tend to feel
healthier, younger, more lively and,
in general, better about themselves
and their lives.
The list of health issues that can be
helped by detoxifying the body is
endless, but here are some of the most
common reasons why people choose to do
- Purify liver, kidney and blood
- Eliminate years of built up
- Increase energy and focus
- Lose weight
- Ease chronic pain
- Look younger
- Boost immune system
- Cure high blood pressure
- Get rid of acne

and cilantro extract: when
used in a team can make a dent in your
level of aluminum, a metal notoriously
difficult to remove from the body.
Once cilantro binds to aluminum, the
chlorella will then hasten its exit
through your kidneys. Chlorella also
supports your liver's detoxification
you want to try chelation, you'll need to
eat cilantro every day. Try eating two
tablespoons of cilantro pesto each day for
at least three weeks. When you add chlorella
with the cilantro, it will bind to the
mercury and help flush it from the system.
You can try garlic for this also. You can
also simply add fresh cilantro to your food
each day. You can cook the cilantro into
soup and pasta, add it to salads or use it
as a topping for meat dishes. Or try this

1/3 cup Brazil nuts (selenium)

2/3 cup flaxseed oil
4 tablespoons lemon juice (vitamin C)
2 tsp dulse powder

Process the cilantro

percent of your immune system. Low levels
of glutamine are associated with impaired
To get enough glutamine, use food sources
that include beef, chicken, fish, beans,
eggs, spinach, and two excellent
detoxifiers-cabbage and beets.
Garlic: contains large amounts of
sulfur, a hard-working element required
for successful detoxification of unwanted
chemicals in the liver. Garlic can aid
your detox system by safely reducing
harmful gut bacteria and parasites. If you
don't want to eat it raw - which I think
is best - you can take Garlic supplements.
Other sulfur-containing foods include
meat, fish, chicken, and the cruciferous
vegetables that I mentioned above.
To support your liver in its
detoxification efforts, try milk
thistle and alpha
lipoic acid. Milk
thistle's active ingredient, silymarin,
has been used to reduce the toxic effects
from a wide variety of liver poisons such
as death-cap mushrooms, alcohol, and
acetaminophen. It also reduces liver
inflammation, is useful in fatty liver
disease (which now affects over 70 million
Americans), and improves glucose
lipoic acid, the "universal
antioxidant," recycles other important
antioxidants, such as vitamin C, vitamin E
and glutathione. It has been used in its
high-dose intravenous form to treat acute
liver failure and can also help with
blood- sugar control.

mini-fasts There is more evidence to
support the health benefits of 12-
to-24-hour fasts as often as once a week.
For example, for a 12-hour fast, you might
wake up Saturday morning and just sip
herbal tea and water until dinner, which
could be a light meal of chicken or fish,
salad and a piece of fruit.
The key here would be to consider your
short fast as an opportunity to slow down.

Plan ahead and get your chores done before

detox-body wrap using essential oils, herbs
A homemade detox body wrap contains soothing
clay, herbs and oils work by drawing toxins
out through your skin pores and by helping
improve circulation and lymphatic drainage.
You can make the blend at home a
do-it-yourself detox body wrap will take
just minutes to prepare and will leave you
Be sure to drink plenty of water before
and after a detox body wrap.
Step 1 Heat 2
cups water to boiling.
Step 2 Add 1/4
cup sea salt to the boiling water and stir
until the salt dissolves completely.
Step 3 Pour 2
tbsp. olive oil, and 2 tbsp. of an
essential oil such as lavender,
into the hot salt water solution.
Step 4 Mix in 1
bentonite clay and stir. Let the clay
dissolve to create a paste. If necessary,
add more clay to reach the proper
consistency. As an alternative, use green
clay instead of bentonite. Let the clay cool
just enough so it's tolerable to the skin.
Take a 10 -15 minute warm shower before
applying the wrap to exfoliate the
skin and open the pores in perpetration for
the body wrap. Use a gentle exfoliating
scrub to remove any dead skin. (Make your
own exfoliating scrub - mix 1/2 cup of raw,
granulated sugar with 1/4 of sea salt, 5-6
drops of English
Lavender and 1 tablespoon of good,
extra virgin olive oil.) Exfoliate the
entire body, gently scrubbing the skin in an
upward, circular motion, then pat yourself
dry. Dry out the tub after your shower.
Step 5 Cover
your naked body with the clay paste. Wrap
yourself in a clean sheet, pulling the sheet
tight and securing it.
Step 6 Lie down
and relax in the tub for one hour while
Step 7 Rinse
off in the shower, initially with the sheet
on until most of the clay runs down the
drain. Take the sheet off and shower
normally. Place the sheet in the washing
machine and wash it twice. Use it for your
next body wrap to avoid staining a new
sheet. Rinse the tub out thoroughly.
Both sea salt and Epsom salts
are excellent choices for body wrap
solutions. When Epsom salt--the common name
for magnesium sulfate--is absorbed through
the skin, it can reduce fluid build-up and
tissue swelling, promote the release of
toxins from the body and act as a natural
exfoliator and calming agent. Use
approximately 1/4 cup of salt for every cup
of clay used.
Epsom Salt Scrub Recipe
Massage a handful of epsom salts, mixed
with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and
a drop or two of your favorite essential
oil (my favorite is Eucalyptus
over wet skin to cleanse, exfoliate and
soften the rough spots. Rinse well.
Add 2 tbsp. of lavender,
essential oils to the primary mixture for an
added skin stimulating boost. These natural
oils support circulation and toning of the
skin, they also support skin health and the
reduction of inflammation on the skin that
may increase inches on the body. These
essential oils in particular have muscle
relaxing properties, as well as acting as
skin cleansers and conditioners. Typically,
a body wrap solution using 1 cup of clay
includes up to 2 tbsp. of one or more
rose petals and rosehips
are all herbs traditionally used in body
wrap mixtures. You can add as much as 1 cup
of the powdered herb to the clay paste
before applying. Or some recipes - 1 cup of
herb steeped in a sink of hot water - soak
towels wring out and wrap your self, rest
for 10 minutes - then apply the clay mixture
of your choice. These herbs have a
calming effect on the nervous system and are
traditionally used to decrease muscle pain
and tissue inflammation.
Cellulite Body Wrap
Combine 8 drops of grapefruit
essential oil with 2 drops each of thyme,
berry essential oils. Add 2 cups of almond oil, mix
well, and then pour the mixture into a
plastic squirt bottle. apply wrap yourself
and relax for 30 to 40 minutes.
Prepare the room by placing the
drop cloth over your bed or sofa. Light
scented candles and choose soothing
background music. Make sure the room is
comfortably warm and that you are creating a
relaxing environment for yourself.
Fill the sink with hot water,
the cup of herbs and 2 tbsp. olive or almond
oil. While the mixture steeps, get
into a warm shower and gently exfoliate with
a sea sponge or loofah to open your pores.
Use a gentle exfoliating scrub to remove any
dead skin. (Make your own exfoliating scrub
- mix 1/2 cup of raw, granulated sugar with
1/4 of sea salt, 5-6 drops of English
Lavender and 1 tablespoon of good,
extra virgin olive oil.)
Place two of your towels in the
herb mixture and let soak for 1 to 2 minutes
after your shower. Wring out the towels,
wrap yourself up and go lie down. Relax and
enjoy for 10 minutes.
