(NaturalNews) Life in the 21st century is full of stress and environmental toxicity. We have over 80,000 toxic chemicals in our surrounding environment that we are interacting with regularly. A lifestyle of daily detoxifying strategies and periodic cleansing periods is essential to health in the modern world.

Researchers estimate through various studies that the average person living today is carrying a minimum of 700 known toxins in their blood, skin, fat tissue, brain tissue, liver, digestive and other organ systems. Some of the major contaminant agents are found in household cleaning agents, personal hygiene products, lawn care, food, water and other drinks as well as the air we are breathing.

The body burden

The body does everything it can to bind and eliminate these chemicals every day. The major elimination organs are the colon, skin, kidneys and lungs. These organs should go through a daily detoxification process. If this doesn't happen, the waste products and toxins accumulate in the cells and tissues of the body. This toxic bioaccumulatory process causes inflammation and damage that leads to chronic disease and abnormal brain and nervous system activity.

The digestive system, kinetic energy system and immune system all compete for energy. When we are eating throughout the day, it drives more energy into our digestive system and away from our immune system. This is especially the case if we are eating low-energy foods such as sugars, grains and other processed foods.

Low energy foods and environmental toxins cause a back jam in the digestive system and elimination organs. This creates an environment for opportunistic parasites to thrive. The parasites excrete more toxic substances that effect lymphatic function, cellular oxygenation and immunity.

The goal of cleansing

The goal of a cleansing program is to flush out impurities and optimize function. It gives the over-burdened internal organs time for physiological rest and rehabilitation. This frees up energy to enhance healing processes. This also allows the body to utilize enzymes for clearing out parasites and abnormal cell development.

During a cleansing period, most people will feel a myriad of different experiences. Many feel tired and weak for the first two days and then often feel clear and peaceful by the third day. Some people remark that they feel the best while they are cleansing while others feel awful.

The major results people experience with or after a cleansing period include:

- Excess weight loss and improved energy enhanced immunity
- Better skin and hair along with reduced pain and more restful sleep
- Mental clarity, better digestion and improved healing

Daily detoxification strategies include an anti-inflammatory diet that is low in sugar and starch. This lifestyle is loaded with fermented foods, anti-oxidant rich superfoods and herbs. The bulk of the calories should come from good fats such as coconut and avocados and clean proteins from organic and grass-fed animal products. Cycles of intermittent fasting with quality fluid intake for periods of 12-18 hours daily are highly beneficial for eliminating a majority of toxins consumed that day.

Periodic cleansing periods where solid food is eliminated for periods of 24-72 hours are highly recommended. Water fasting is not recommended as it can lead to key electrolyte deficiencies that can wreak havoc on the body. An appropriate cleanse should be supported with fermented drinks that provide potassium, enzymes, organic acids and B vitamins to resource the elimination channels.

It is also advantageous to use coconut oil during the cleansing period. Coconut oil feeds the immune system and helps provide medium-chain triglycerides that destroy parasitic microorganisms. It also helps to provide a clean energy source for the brain and reduces inflammation.
