Crashing the Myth of Detox
Detox only works with a healthy liver
Got detox? - I am going to crash the detox myth... On every corner you can see it: Detox in a week, Detox Weekend, fast detox, detox yoga, detox machine, ect. ect... Than when you actually ask people what a detox is, nobody can really tell you. "Cleaning out dirt from my body." Question is: What dirt? What means actually to detox?
Gone myself though many cleanses and a few detox, I can tell the difference very well. Additional I have seen many people doing cleanses, but only a few people doing a real detox with me during many years of guiding people though the process of healing. For many the challenge of a cleans is already more than they can bare and many give up after one cleans - unfortunately. So how can you do a fast forward detox on the weekend, if some of my clients are already having a hard time to cleans? A process which does not yet pull toxin out of the body, only cleans out eliminating organs.
So what is actually a detox?
Detox means you are removing heavy metal and chemicals out of brain, bones, deep tissue and organs. The additional of chemicals is most of the time forgotten. Heavy metal detox is the new deal. That chemicals can do much more damage and kill you faster - within hours is mostly ignored. The important part is here that you aware what you are removing and what those chemicals and heavy metals are doing to your body. Here are a few examples (short cuts of the real facts):
Mercury - Get from: Fish, Vaccination, Amalgam fillings, Breathing in if you live close to a crematory - Can effect: Brain (Alzheimer, Parkinson, Autism, ect.), Bones (Osteoporosis, as mercury mimics calcium), Night Sweats, Hair Loose, Cancer and many, many more.
PCB's - Get from: Food, Air, Water - Can effect: Your whole body - stops the intake of minerals, stops function of liver and gallbladder, causes cancer, can lead to kidney failure, can cause miscarriage, as well as birth defects and many, many more. Today found in plants, animals, soil and water all over the world.
Aluminum - Get from: Air includes Rain, Water, Cooking Pots, Food, high levels today in soil worldwide (up to 60000 times elevated levels have been found in some places around the world) - Can effect: Function of brain (same as Mercury), is extremely attracted to the brain tissue and believed to be more toxic than Mercury, liver dysfunction, causes cancer, asthma and many more.
Fluoride: Water, Food that is prepared or even grown with fluoride treated water, Toothpaste - Can effect: Your whole body as it is a neurotoxin that effects liver, kidneys, brain functions (mostly pineal gland), causes cancer, depression, sleeping problems and can destroy your life by dumping you down and kills your spiritually and feeling of freedom. Accumulates in the body, hard to remove. As it accumulates it causes more and more health problems.
There is a total of 15000 or more chemicals know and produced today. One can have a "Cocktail" of over 1000 traces or more of the in the body. Some of them do potent up if they come together, such as Lead and Mercury. Means if you got one is bad already, but if you got them both together they can have up to 1000 times more effect on you. As those chemicals and toxin effect Spleen and Liver, they influence the function of them. Spleen has the function of absorbing nutrients from the colon, Liver has over 500 functions, one of them is to detox the body. Now you stop those two functions and your body is on red flag alert. It does not need more.
What does it mean when your body cannot absorb nutrients anymore? Simply: You are starving! Our body needs nutrients to keep the chemical functions in the body going. Without them those functions go down. So you basically can eat tons of good food, but if your spleen is full of PCB's, there is no way your body will get the amount of nutrients you need to function well. Now the liver is a high vital organ in the body, remember 500 functions, which works like a filter for blood and lymphatic system. As any other filter in the mechanical world, the liver needs to get cleaned out from time to time. Certain food can do this to the liver if the liver is functioning. The liver re-acts on the food and basically spills out the dirt, which can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea within 24 hours after. Now the liver can only function like this if it is healthy and vital and has not been polluted with toxin and chemicals as well as calcium for years and years. Just think of a pump which is totally calcified after many years of use. One day it breaks down if you don't clean it regular. So, the simple trick is to help the liver cleaning out regular. Once the liver and the body are cleaned and detoxed, the liver can function well again. And it does!
The process of cleaning out the body has to be done careful and with high nutrition support. A so called colonic fastening will not be able to help the body to function in its detox effects, as well as supporting the removal of toxin and chemicals out of the body. Yes, it even bares the danger of getting more chemicals and toxin right into the blood stream and from there into brain, bones and organs. Toxin and chemicals in your organs and bones can cause defects in the bone marrow and lead to cancer. A cleans based on the right diet, which would for example contain broccoli, a vegetable well known to attract toxin and transport them out of the body. Other food can function like a sponch and absorb toxic liquids released by the liver and gallbladder during a proper cleans. This way the body will not re-absorb those chemicals and toxin.
Once the body has been carefully cleaned out over a period of several months, a real detox process can start. Fact is: We need to give our body time to do this cleaning process, as it takes time to clean out long time of pollution. How can we even think that we can clear out 20, 30 or 40 years of pollution in a single weekend? Each time the liver is cleansed again, more old "dirt" comes out of the body, not just the colon. The real detox will pull and push out heavy metals and chemicals from brain, bones, organs and tissues. The push and pull and transport out is crucial to a detox and can sabotage the result. To much push can overload your organs, to much pull can give you strong headaches for a long period of time. To little supporting food in the colon will let the body absorb those chemicals again. A real detox can cause discomfort and can have many side effects, such as headaches, pains, dizziness when the detox moves chemicals and toxin. It is important that a detox is done the right way and that the circle of detox is not interrupted. A detox can take place over about 2 weeks and has to repeated 2-3 times. Over this 2 weeks good deal of rest is suggested. Once the detox process is done, you only have to maintain low toxic levels, which is than very easy.
One of the other thinking mistakes is that we getting sensitive. This is not right. Yes, our body is finally after a good cleans and detox able to re-act on anything wrong you put into your body, as it will be identified as "bad - must leave". From my personal experience I can tell if I had something wrong: Within 24 hours my body does everything to clean it out, which can make my tried, feeling nausea, diarrhea, dizziness and headaches. Once the bad stuff is out I recover without any other needed help. Simply letting the body to its job. The sad part is: If you don't re-act on a chemical and toxic loaded meal your body has than already shoot down the cleansing process. This is a clear sign that your natural detox process simply does not work anymore.
Gone though a real detox a few times, makes me questioning what is actually sold as detox today. Lets get deeper into this. Basically each of those methods contain the use of certain nutrients, often a colonic, physical exercise. When I looked closer to the nutrients, I found that the food given was often to plain, to low in real nutrients. When supplements where given, the fact, that supplements actually leave a so called "BIO-FILM" on the inside of the colon, making it even harder to absorb nutrients. Most supplements contain MSG and other harmful chemicals. After colonics often the after nutrient care was not taken care off. I often see people eating burgers and the same food as they use to eat before. The liver basically gets shocked by such an experience. Fastening can be very health compromising for some people, as it will destabilize their metabolism for a long time as well as stop the processing of toxin and chemicals. Watching carefully, I found that most with obesity had done several colonics, but never someone had a deeper look at their actually diet. I personally believe that any kind of fasting shall be only suggested to those on top of their physical, mental and spiritual peak.
Detox is a serious treatment and need to be done with the right preparation. A good diet has to be followed. And here comes another big myth: Most people think they are eating very good. I have not found a single person living on the right diet, but the right diet can make the big change from illness to health. And here I am breaking another myth: Healthy eating can be very, very delicious and to be honest, once you get used to it, you cannot understand how a plate of spaghetti Bolongnaise could every appeal as good food to you. So called slimming diets also do not work, as they do not take care of the source of the problem and often are based on a protein drink, which is based on soy: The biggest health hazard together with wheat in our modern world. I found many people who have been put by trained nutritionist on protein soy drinks with devastating effects as loose of libido, loose of menstruation, obesy, Thyroid problems, depression and many more.
One of the major misunderstandings in doing a detox is, that people do feel better once they did something - eating lighter food, drinking a lot, resting. Sure, if you improve the colon, you do feel better. But fastening can also put you in a stage of euphoria, which can last for several weeks. This has nothing to do with a real feeling of health. Once the euphoria wears off, you are gradually get back to the old feeling. On a real detox you improving more and more in long term with incredible health effects on your body. This misunderstanding in what a detox really is can be over long term the cause of big health problems for some people with real toxic problems, as the liver will be constantly overloaded with toxin and chemicals. The liver simply has no way to deal with them anymore. Even small children are effected of high toxic levels today and for many parents this seams very odd, over the top and not possible. It has been shown, that many who think their health is well and they "feel" good are not as healthy as it seams. Short time ago I examed a man who is a high skilled healer colleague. He had a dry hacking cough and I asked him if I can check him out. He told me he feels very well and strong, but got cold the other night. Once we checked his organs his confidence into his real health status was a bursted bubble: Enlarged and extremely sensitive liver, enlarged spleen, the colon full of sensitive spots, I was almost not able to touch his belly, which indicates inflammation in the lining of the colon. His physical condition was like I normally see in men age 50 - 60 years - he is only 37!
Similar to those colonic detox treatment is the way today anything is used to kill parasites, fungal, virus and bacteria, as well as cells, like in chemotherapy and antibiotic. What will happen with the dead matter if the liver is not able to clear it out? It simply will accumulate in your body and cause more harm in long term. Breast Cancer is highly connected with abortion. A process where a growing circle is suddenly interrupted. Cells in the breast die off and get stucked in the beast. After years the area develops cancer though high toxic levels, as the natural cleaning pathways are polluted with dead cells. Nonsense you think? No, withhold proven research. By cleansing the body, you are able to slowly wash out those particles and basically scrub out your blood vessels and lymphatic system. But a far better way is to clean out your body first and than kill all those nasty little creatures, such as parasites and bacteria. Than it is easy to get them out and they don't get stucked somewhere where you really don't want them.
Unfortunately I have seen many people suffering over the last two years who believed they lived a very healthy live style. Vegetarians, done many "detox", lived healthy, eat well, doing Yoga, doing retreats, has been said about them. Most of them believed in the power of what they did. I see many people around me suffering with terminal illness, but not willed to step aside and say: What causes this? Rather treating the outcome. Many of them lived a holistic live style and turn medical. I seen many who have high toxic levels and are totally unaware of their condition, yes even denial to be toxic. "I eat well!" "I feel good!" Toxin and chemicals are today's killers, more than anything else. Every single day! With a medical system totally unaware of the fact, yes even warning people of natural treatments. While many holistic Doctors such as Klinghardt and Hulda Clark are well aware of toxin and have involved them into their work as the main cause to health problems with high success rates in their healing. Klinghardt even warns people of homeopathic detox, but has developed incredible other ways to detox his clients. Hulda Clark did a tremendous job of research and awareness work, but her system by now is outdated with far better methods developed. A new/old generation of cleansing and detox has come now, but detoxing the wrong way can in long term cost your liver and with your liver your life!
I feel, we have to make a big turn over in our believes and how we approach health and healing today. The world has changed so much and our healing methods are still ancient, stagnated in the past. Our food, our water and the air contain so many harmful substances, how can they not? Most people are totally unaware, that 70% of the toxin we absorb today is though air. What you want to do? Stop breathing? Even living organic will not protect you from pollution, as the rain contains toxin and chemicals too. With the fallouts in Japan, we breathing in each day at least 4 hot particles, which can cause cancer in the long term. This is what causes the big trouble with the fallouts in Japan, not the background radiation everybody is talking about. Our bodies can deal with quite a lot of background radiation. Hopeless? No. Get informed what chemicals you have in your body. Remove them safely from your life and body. Increase the function of your liver by cleaning and detoxing the right way and eat very, very well - every single day. Sleep well and get lots of sun and fresh air. Keep doing your Yoga, Pilates or Gym if you like it and it makes you feel good, but be aware: It does not detox you! - The right way of healing, cleansing and detox has cured terminal illnesses and has kept people out of trouble even in areas highly contaminated.
For me there simply is NO fast detox. Detox is a live style. Health is a life style and a choice we make for our life. Detox is nothing we do over a free weekend. Detox is live saving if done the right way and not a FASION.
