Toxins are real and we, with our modern lifestyles, are constantly being bombarded with them. When our natural detoxification system is not able to keep up with the onslaught of toxicity, we begin to experience symptoms such as:
Many people chose to lessen their toxic burden through cleansing your body, i.e. a detoxification protocol. This is one of the best ways to elevate your health and allow your body to function as God intended it to!
Here is the tricky part: there are a million and one detox systems/protocols/supplements. Which one will give you the deepest cleanse and leave you feeling ten years younger?
The options range from $8.99 Walmart herbal foot pads to spending a few months out in the Himalayas to live with the monks and meditate your heart out. Most of these options waste your time, energy and money without giving you real detoxification.
In the simplest sense, true detox must happen on two levels.
The two levels for effective detox include the micro (cellular) level and the macro (body) level. Most detox protocols address either one level or the other. That is a big problem because both levels must be addressed for effective detox and long-term results with weight loss.
If we only work with the cells, we run a high risk of something called autointoxication. As soon as we get the toxins out of the cells, they get dumped into the bloodstream, the liver, and the large intestine. If they are not safely taken out of the body, eventually they get absorbed back into the cells. And we end up where we started.
On the other hand, if we only work with the detoxifying the body level through cleanses, we are missing a critical part of true, long-term detox — the cellular level, which is where most of the toxins reside. Colon cleanses, liver cleanses, gallbladder cleanses, etc are great. However, if we don’t address the cellular level — it will be a short, temporary fix and it will prevent us from truly detoxifying our body.
