The majority of people’s bodies come equipped with an in-built ability to “detox”. Your liver and kidneys are prime examples of this – flushing out toxins on a regular basis.
Below are 6 top tips on boosting your body’s natural “detox” capacity:
1. Drink Coffee – there have been recent studies showing that 2-3 coffees a day can un-do alcohol related liver damage – https://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=CV_1u&m=lAuTegHur6icE4Y&b=4EaHpOs48ziYXqJ5fsnsgg.
Drinking coffee can also increase levels of your body’s own master antioxidant Glutathione which plays a major role in detoxification – https://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=CV_1u&m=lAuTegHur6icE4Y&b=DZnt0HacFelyVBVgzitJOQ
2. Sweat – whether it be via a sauna or from strenuous exercise – sweating can excrete toxins from your body. Sweat has been shown to contain arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury. Sweating also assists your kidney by restoring nitrogen excretion in people with kidney disease. To prepare your skin for your “sweat session” scrub your skin with a soft brush, luffa, or a rough wash cloth to remove dead skin See:
3. EDTA Chelation – EDTA, or ethylenediamine tetra-acetic acid, is a synthetic amino acid (search EDTA in Amazon). When you take EDTA it dissolves heavy metals in the body. This study set out to disprove it and was won over – https://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=CV_1u&m=lAuTegHur6icE4Y&b=5fwAtgjOPaw.eD2CPpMzDQ
4. Support Your Liver – Your liver is the chemical processing plant in your body involved in most your body’s detox activities. To keep your liver in tip top shape – avoid refined sugar, avoid too much alcohol (and if you do imbibe eat saturated fat with it and avoid polyunsaturated fat), eat egg yolks and animal livers, and avoid refined polyunsaturated oils.
5. Support your Kidney – The kidney excretes the toxins that you accumulate. The key to keeping your kidneys in good condition is to avoid refined sugar and in particular high levels of fructose.
6. Eat Cruciferous Veggies – Cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussel Sprouts. They contain a compound called sulforaphane which in turn activates a very important antioxidant within your body called quinone reductase. This compound protects your cells from toxins and boosts the master antioxidant in your body called Glutathione.
