Cleansing your body of the toxics is like un-telling your life’s story of consumption and exposure.
In fact, it all began in vitro. Yes, that’s right, your mother likely started you off, and then your surrounding environment—the air, food, water, emotions, etc.—took over, and over, and over….
It’s not personal! It just is what it is. And what it is, simply, is the world we live in.
Just to be clear, this particular topic is about cleansing the physical body (Part 1) — cleaning or purging our body of toxins…
Can toxins really affect your health? Well, this is a heavily debated conversation… in my opinion, yes. And, I base this on my own personal experience, but you will come to your own opinion on this and decide accordingly.
Now that I have my disclaimer out of the way, here are my thoughts for however you perceive them and may want to apply them to your life and lifestyle:
- When you free your body from having to deal with the ill effects of toxins day after day, you may increasingly enjoy enhanced function and more abundant energy and mental clarity.
- Be patient, un-telling you physical life story requires time. Also, accepting that somethings may just be made “better”, but not “fixed”. For example, I have had a spinal injury (or a few), and by using my preference to detox and cleanse, I was able to minimize the pain without using opiates.
- Our bodies are designed to detoxify daily by engaging the five elimination organs—skin, lungs, kidneys, liver, and colon—to neutralize and eliminate toxins. Toxic or excess foods, beverages, medications, emotions, and lifestyle choices may reduce your body’s ability to detoxify efficiently and effectively.
- If metabolic wastes are not eliminated properly, they remain inside us—either stagnating along the digestive tract or being reabsorbed.
- When waste is reabsorbed through the intestinal walls, the body transports it via the bloodstream to various cavities, organs, and joints.
- These toxins may then be stored in fat cells and mucus, form crystals, or bind to proteins in your tissues.
- Cholesterol may develop into gallstones or bind to artery walls. The crystals or minerals may form stones in the kidneys, and the proteins may form deposits in the connective tissues.
- Think of it like this: “Peek-a-Boo Syndrome”:
- We chew, we swallow, and it’s gone! Well, not exactly. It’s easy to get lulled into the belief that if we cannot see something, there is no need to concern ourselves with it anymore. But the reality is that if you eat something and it does not come out, it is still in there! Eventually, allowing food to stay inside the warm, wet environment that is your digestive tract may, well… make the nose wrinkle, that’s for sure!
Our natural instinct is to ignore potential problems and hope they go away. But picture putting food inside a plastic bag and leaving it in a closet, for days—especially “indulgence” foods like alcohol, fried foods, processed foods, and sugary desserts. Yuck! Dis-Ease is undoubtedly brewing.

Needless to say, there are many compelling reasons to cleanse! I hope this got you thinking about adjusting your lifestyle or choices to minimize toxins and maximize your body’s natural detoxification and determination to renew itself!
