(NaturalNews) Why should we care about detoxification? Because millions of people are needlessly (unconsciously) suffering from fatigue, headaches, insomnia, allergies, depression and a host of degenerative diseases due to excessive exposure to toxic substances. And, I believe, it's time to shed light on the cause and provide simple solutions that work.
On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Susan Smith Jones talk about the dangers of toxicity and how to naturally cleanse the body including lots of simple, at-home remedies for detoxification and rejuvenation.
I eat "organic" - why should I care about detoxification?
We're all toxic - in one way or another. And, if we don't address this challenge to our health, it will eventually take its toll on our wellbeing. The air, food and water supply are being constantly polluted with unwanted (toxic) chemicals. Politicians bow to corporate interests and allow these horrible substances to be legally used in every aspect of our lives.
Even most "healthy" foods in the supermarket have synthetic vitamins, genetically engineered ingredients and un-natural additives hidden under terms such as, "natural flavors" or "proprietary blend". So, the next time you hear that inflammation is the "root cause of all disease" - don't get distracted - and focus on removing the toxins in your life.
7 natural foods to help cleanse the body and increase your energy
Blueberries can help block toxins from crossing the blood-brain barrier into fatty tissues of the brain.
Cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, kale, broccoli, etc.) neutralize some of the damaging compounds found in cigarette smoke and contain a compound that helps the liver produce adequate amounts of enzymes for detoxification.
Carrots have beta-carotene which helps to cleanse the body of heavy metals. One of my favorite juices is carrot, apple, lemon and ginger.
Grapefruit has pectin which binds to heavy metals, helping to neutralize them for safe elimination.
Lemons have got vitamin C which supports the production of glutathione, which helps ensure that "phase 2" liver detoxification keeps pace with "phase 1" - thereby reducing the likelihood of negative effects from environmental chemicals.
Onions cleanse the blood and help detoxify the respiratory tract.
Seaweed binds to radioactive waste and heavy metals, helping to eliminate them safely from the body.
To optimize our detoxification efforts: buy organic food (as much as possible); take high-quality, nutritional supplements (as needed); exercise (sweat) and try juice feasting or fasting on a regular basis. Simply focus on expanding your knowledge and improving lifestyle habits for amazingly good results.
