Get Rid of It


Ok, so I talk a lot about detoxing.  If fact you may be one of the  many people  that  have  heard me talk about body detoxification so much that you are either convinced that this is something you need to do or you just think I have too much time on my hand.  Getting healthy  is very much in vogue, especially with celebrities. You might have wondered about the idea of colon cleansing and how it works. When you first hear about body detoxification, you may conjure up images in your mind that are unpleasant.   Visions of long parasites in your bowels.  Once you get to understand about body detoxification and how it works, however, you may not be so afraid. In fact, you may just become one of us; DETOXED.
Body detoxification concentrates on cleaning out your digestive system, usually by drinking a solution that is made to clear out your intestines and give the organs in your digestive system a boost or doing colonics which  manually cleanse the colon out.  Colon cleansing is subject that we just don’t want to talk about.  Think about it.  Who sits around and think about gut health?  I do!  I truly believe that death begins in the gut.  I believe it with everything I am. What impacts us in the colon attacks us in the body.  Diseases and dis-ease is something that has infiltrated the body and the body has not gotten rid of it.  As a medical scientist I have a bird’s eye view on most of the new drugs that come to market.  I’m the one that researches these drug and sends it to the FDA for approval or not. But, did you know that this allows me to see the mechanisms of action of many drugs in the body?  You would be amazed to see how our modern drugs work on our body.  However, equally amazing is how diseases work in our body.  You can’t study drug actions without understanding the how the body works.
Cleansing the colon  works to make sure that your digestive system is healthy. When your digestive system is in good working order, your whole body sings. If your digestive system is not healthy, then your whole body suffers. In order to have a healthy body, you must have a healthy digestive system.  For you  digestive system is the catch all for all the toxins that you take into your body. Even if you are a healthy person who does not smoke, does not drink and eat only organic foods, you are still taking in toxins daily. Toxins are in the air that you breathe, the water  you drink and … well, just about everywhere. Unfortunately we can escape this.   These toxins linger in the body and find their way to the digestive system – a vital system that you need to maintain good health.
The digestive system is comprised of organs such as the liver, pancreas, kidneys and intestines. Foods usually enter the digestive system through the stomach and are then passed for processing through the digestive tract. Some foods and drinks that you take in make the kidneys and pancreas work overtime in processing them.  Each organ in the digestive system have a job to do in order to keep your body running healthy. Once food and drink is processed in the system, it is then eliminated by way of waste. Liquids are eliminated by urine and solid waste is eliminated through the intestines as feces. Because of the inorganic and synthetic foods we consume, foods we consume end up lining the wall of  the intestines.  Do you know that there are cases where doctors have found child hood toys  in the intestines of adults?

What’s a colon to do?
The digestive organs take a beating when it comes to getting rid of toxins as well as some foods that can be difficult for these organs to process. Quite simply, the body sometimes does not know what to do with some of the foods we consume. Simple carbohydrates, for example, tax the kidneys and pancreas as well as the liver as they tend to pass through quickly and make these organs work much harder.  We breathe in toxins from the air which enters our lungs and goes through the circulatory system that brings blood to and from every vital organ. Did you know that smoking doesn’t just enter your lungs? The smoke is absorbed into your bloodstream and carried throughout your body.  I don’t support just one form of detoxification.  In fact, this year, I’ve just tried to EMPHASIZE the need to detox which whatever method you deem fit.  I just have a preferred method.
It saddens me when I see illness and I know that much of what we deal with as it relates to health does not have to be.  While, I’m not perfect with my diet, I’m have made definite changes.  I am still drinking wholefood smoothies, take probiotics regularly and consume fiber.   The bottom line is that everything needs to move in your body.  I want to arm you with as much education as possible.  We must grow together.  Let’s navigate our lives differently than we ever have before.  LET’S WIN!!!!!!!!!!!
