hronic conditions, autoimmune diseases and cancer are becoming increasingly common, and, worst of all, there’s a growing number of young people affected. Excessive exposure to environmental toxins is considered the main culprit for these illnesses, all of which occur as a result of genetic imbalances. Other risk factors include stress, hormone disrupters, parasites, viruses, bacteria, as well as sugar, refined carbs, highly processed foods, emulsifiers, pesticides, heavy metals, and similar.
Although a person’s immune system is responsible for dealing with toxins in the body through various mechanisms like fevers, diarrhea, and vomiting, when its function is compromised, these poisons remain locked inside, and eventually trigger an autoimmune condition.
An autoimmune disorder occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys healthy body tissue by mistake. The toxins inside the body continue to trigger the immune system.
In fact, a number of autoimmune disorders are caused by diet rich in sugar, wheat, gluten, GMO, pesticides, and heavy metals, which prompt distention and pH imbalances.
Moreover, acid blockers including Pepcid, Nexium, Prilosec or various diets can raise the pH higher than 3, thus stopping the release of pepsin, which is essential for protein breakdown.
Consequently, these excess proteins leak through the permeable gut wall, thus alerting the immune system, which identifies them as foreign bodies. Inflammation, which is the defense reaction of the body, is also common at this point. Although normally short-term, inflammations can cause chronic conditions.
Some commonly known autoimmune conditions include:
- Blood-leukemia, lupus, hemolytic conditions
- Nerves-diabetic & peripheral neuropathy
- Muscles-fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy
- Thyroid-Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease
- Brain-MS, autism, Guillain-Barré syndrome (caused by flu shot or a virus)
- Bones-rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, polymyalgia rheumatica
- Lungs-Wegener’s granulomatosis, asthma
- GI tract/pancreas-Celiacs, IBS, Crohns, ulcerative colitis, diabetes
- Skin-eczema, psoriasis, scleroderma, vitiligo
Allopathic medicine suggests that immunosuppression or reducing the activation and efficacy of the immune system instead of identifying the cause is more beneficial when treating these diseases. An example of this is Humira or Prednisone. But, this approach must be considered seriously prior to treatment because in this case, the body’s natural response to a foreign body is inhibited. In fact, what you’re doing is addressing the result rather than attacking the root cause. This eventually brings side- effects on its own.
What proves to be more effective in treatment of these conditions is using natural remedies to cleanse your entire body of toxins and strengthen your immune system thus enabling it to fight off diseases of any kind.
Read on to find out how you can detox all internal organs and improve your immune system at the same time:
Stay away from foods containing wheat, gluten, soy, and milk, as well as processed and fried foods, and foods that have been genetically modified. Instead, you should focus on organic foods only. Although many of the above mentioned foods don’t cause inflammation or pH imbalances in their natural, unprocessed state, when refined or genetically modified, the same foods can cause a number of health issues, including serious diseases.
That’s why, it’s highly recommended to stay away from refined sugar, aspartame, MSG, trans fats, hydrogenated oils like canola or vegetable oil. Plus, you should also cut down on caffeine and alcohol.
Instead, increase your intake of healthy fats such as coconut, avocado, omega-3’s, olive oil, as well as nuts and seeds, and probiotics. A Berkey filter or reverse osmosis filter to remove toxins, metals, and fluoride from your tap water is also something you should consider. Last, but not least, alkaline diets are extremely health beneficial as they include foods that are low in sodium, but high in potassium
The liver is most susceptible to toxic deposits because it is the organ in charge for filtering and processing blood as it circulates through the body. In order to cleanse your liver of toxins, use burdock root, dandelion root, milk thistle, beets, Jerusalem artichokes, garlic, turmeric or curcumin, fermented foods, and castor oil packs on the abdomen. Make sure that any liver cleansing method you use should always contain ornithine. Tulsi and dandelion tea are also beneficial for liver detox, just as Lugol’s iodine is.
Olive oil cleanse for liver
Another thing to do during the liver detox process is drink carrot juice and eat tart green apples for a week so as to soften any gallstones and to prevent their dislocation. Then, take a shot of olive oil with lemon juice and finish with a castor oil pack at night.
These herbs are especially beneficial for kidney cleansing: horsetail, Flor-essence tea along with Uva Ursi capsules, Ginger, Goldenrod tincture, Vitamin B-6, Black Cherry Concentrate, and Vegetable Glycerin. Other methods can also be very helpful for flushing your kidneys: lukewarm lemon water, magnesium, organic cranberry juice, apple cider vinegar, and Epsom salt baths. Foods treated with pesticides should largely be avoided as these chemicals cause kidney failure.
Regular bowel movements (for example 2-3 times a day) are essential for keeping your colon free of toxins. Indian gooseberry or Triphala is an excellent colon cleanse as well as coffee enemas. It’s also advisable to drink plenty of distilled or fluoride-free water, aloe Vera water, consume plant-based organic diet, coconut kefir, ginger, garlic, fennel, bentonite clay or activated charcoal to bind & remove toxins, magnesium, and vitamin C.
Zeolite clay and activated charcoal are highly efficient in removing heavy metals from the body. Plus, cilantro, chlorella, high sulfur foods like cabbage, onions, garlic and Brussels sprouts are excellent natural chelators. Also, you can get a professional IV chelation. Avoid unnecessary shots which contain heavy metals like mercury is highly recommended. Mercury is a known neurotoxin that can trigger autoimmune conditions, mood disorders, and mental degradation, which makes it extremely unsafe. Mercury is also found in tooth fillings, so you should see a dentist who specializes in removing mercury amalgams safely.
These herbs and plants are especially beneficial for removing parasites out of the body – wormwood, black walnut shell, cloves, as well as cinnamon, garlic, coconut oil, psyllium husks, bentonite clay and coffee enemas. For the last one, make sure to use organic coffee and distilled water. Complete sterility is also a must. During the treatment, lie on your right side and hold for 10-20 minutes.
The lymphatic system resembles a sewer system, but as it doesn’t have a pump like the heart, for proper lymphatic function, physical activity, walking or yoga is essential. In addition, deep breathing, rebounding, and dry brushing are some other efficient methods for improving your lymphatic function. Gentle lymph massage can also eliminate toxins from the body.
Aside from your internal organ, your skin absorbs a lot of toxins in the form of parabens, BHT or other endocrine disrupters through regular use of body lotions, makeup, deodorants or fragrances. These can trigger hormone misbalance, PCOS, endometriosis, and fibroids.
Other methods to stimulate your lymph system into removing poisons and toxins from your body include infrared saunas, sweating, hot yoga, Epsom salt baths, and dry brush.
Doing regular exercise and sweating is also highly advisable as a lot of toxins are eliminated through sweat. Organic toiletries should be used instead of synthetic ones. And, make sure you ingest sufficient amounts of D vitamin as there’s been mounting evidence that vitamin D prevents breast and prostate cancer.
Taking proper care of your body is essential to maintain proper function of all body organs, which in turn results in good overall health. And, to keep your organs working properly, it’s important to detoxify regularly.
