365 Ways #146–The REAL Master Cleanse Posted on September 21, 2010, 0 Comments
#146–The body can eliminate toxins directly via the skin (the biggest organ of detoxification), the lungs, the kidneys, and the colon; OR by converting these toxins into substances which can be safely excreted or, if necessary, stored in adipose tissue until nutritional resources make elimination possible. These resources (i.e. antioxidants, minerals, etc) are only provided by a high quality diet. Thus, eating the S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) foods most of us eat leave our detoxification systems unable to work properly. The result is weight gain and decreased vitality/health.
Some people’s solution for a crappy diet is the occasional fast. Unfortunately, the breakdown of fats through lipolysis causes a surge of toxins to pour into circulation. Since detoxification is both energy and nutrient dependent, these toxins cannot be eliminated. The resulting damage to your health make further detoxification less likely than before. So not just your colon but all your organs of detoxification get constipated. Think about that next time you’re going to do something stupid like the Master Cleanse. I’ve got your Master Cleanse for you–it’s called REAL FOOD and copious amounts of CLEAN WATER!
