Cleansing--A Self-Help Guide to What To Do
If your body is dehydrated, it can't function well in general, let alone trying to detoxify itself. Your body is 4/5 water and getting enough of the right kind of water is important.
Drink purified water (filter it the best way you can; anything is better than nothing, but look this would be far better:
Berkey Water Filtration Units- A stand alone system for home owners and renters, filters a tremendous amount of bad things, is easy to use, just pour water thru, let it drip down into reservoir and lap it up! No power or water pressure needed.
For even better effects with water use MegaHydrate, to structure, alkalize and lower the surface tension of water. This allows water to get into the cells better. Often people drink water that is relatively pure but because of all the steps it had to go through to become pure it lost much of its hydrating qualities, and it seems like it just runs through them. And it does.
FORMULA TO CALCULATE HOW MUCH WATER TO DRINK PER DAY:
Take your body weight in pounds and divide by 2. This is the amount in ounces of water you need to drink daily, with regular activity.
Example: 150 lb divide by 2= 75
75 ounces (that’s 2 quarts and another big glass) Whoa!!
Open The Avenues of Elimination
Now that you got some water to dilute the toxins, let ‘em out. This will enhance what you should be doing, daily: pooping, peeing, sweating and deep breathing. Most people don’t have a bowel movement after each meal, and don’t drink enough water to flush the system daily (most beverages are coffee, sodas fruit juices, and tea sweetened w/ high fructose corn sweetener, or worse yet aspartame…don’t exercise to break a sweat or deep breathe.
This usually requires the help of some herbs and fiber to help the bowels move more matter out, that been dehydrated and stuck on its walls; and get the kidneys and bladder to start cleaning their filters, so-to-speak--dissolving the junk that they’ve been filtering out, and the lymph moving the crap out of the bloodstream.
There are several products that we carry that can assist:
Cleanse max is a nice 2 product formula, that is taken at bedtime and upon rising. The evening formula moves the bowels good without any gripping or discomfort, just nice smooth movements, multiple times daily (you may have to adjust the amount of cleanse max1 to achieve thisrecommended to start with 2 then 3 or 4 usually does it at bedtimeNotethis product is marketed separately as a stand alone called Colonmax, because so many people need to use it regularly to get the bowels in better shape. The colon is a big muscle and it is usually out of shape in people, thus requiring a daily “trip to the gym” (2 or 3 colonmax at bedtime)
First detox is a little different formula, in that the evening formula won’t bring as much water into the bowel to liquefy the stool, but contains some fiber in the formula. It is better for a child or someone who has never cleansed before or and elderly person of frail constitution.
7 Day Total Body Rapid Detox is a combination of herbs that specifically assist in liver detoxification as well as amino acids for precursors to the body making glutathione, the major detoxifying component the body uses. It also contains the great colon moving product in cleanse max (aka colonmax), and acacia fiber to more rapidly expel the toxins being eliminated into the colon from the liver. A real good formula, especially if it follows an initial all over cleansing like cleanse max, but it does a quick “wiping out” of a lot of toxins, burdening the body.
Organic Total Body Detox- is similar to the 7 day in that it has 3 parts; 1) supports all over body elimination, 2) a fiber blend that contains, flaxseed, oat an acaci fiber (aka Organic Triple Fiber Max) and a poop pill that contains rhubarb root. But all these ingredients are certified organic.
Eat well, as in fresh, as much organic as possible, salads, lots of veggies, fresh made vegetable juices, easy to digest meals, no refine white flour foods, sugar, fried foods, heavy carbs, like pastas or most breads, or heavy animal protein; Use instead cultured foods like yogurt, raw milk or raw cheeses, sprouted seeds and breads, lots of veggies both lightly cooked, steamed and raw, low glycemic fruits, and nutrient dense organic as much as possible and SUPERFOODS; like spirulina, chlorella, green foods etc.
Of course more intense or milder cleanses can be done, like liver-flushes, gall-stone-flushes, kidney coral removal, and heavy metal elimination, just to name a few.
The body needs nutrition in order to be able to properly detoxify. BioMax Multi is a whole-food-based multiple vitamin/mineral supplement that contains all of the enzymes and co-factors. It is composed of basically dehydrated foods high in a broad-spectrum of vital nutrients that the body uses every day, nutrition from food sources, not from isolated, chemically-derived sources.
Drinking fresh, raw vegetable juices and grass juices will provide the body with the correct slightly alkaline pH necessary to prevent cleansing reactions during the process of eliminating acidic wastes, as well as live, vital enzymes necessary for both metabolism and catabolism.
