How to boost your immunity and reduce toxins

Detox is vital in this toxic world.

For a long time as a health coach I have focused on digestion because I believe that good digestion leads to a healthy life. I still absolutely believe this, but it’s also important to remember that to have good digestion you must be detoxing properly.

You see, detox is a natural step toward a better digestion. Good digestion leads to less inflammation, and less inflammation leads to less disease in this world. Let me say it again, decrease the inflammation and prevent disease.

Hippocrates said it best: “All disease begins in the gut.”

If this is true and disease begins in the gut, aka your digestive system, then having a healthy and strong digestion is key. But let me share a secret with you – when the body is toxic, your digestive system is weak.

So even if you eat “clean” and only buy organic and hormone-free foods, you are still breathing toxicity in this world.

We live, eat and breathe toxicity every day. Look around your home and think of the paint on the walls, the rugs, the pesticides sprayed on your green grass, the exterminator to get rid of the bugs. Even if you are chemical-free in your home, is your makeup chemical-free?

Even if you are doing your best to live a chemical-free life, we are still alive, and that means eating, breathing, and sleeping in a toxic environment.

Unless you feel that are ready to live in a bubble or a hyperbaric chamber, then it is time to wake up to what I call daily detox.

Now detox is not a curse word or anything to be scared about. Instead, it is exciting to think about your body and cells actually functioning. I don’t tell people that detox has to be living on only juices, water, smoothies, salad, or soup. Detox is about lessening the toxic load in your body. As I say, “taking out the trash.”

When we are toxic, our body cannot perform its job. The body cannot metabolize properly, detox properly, absorb nutrients and minerals, or stay hydrated. It is a vicious cycle. Detox is necessary to be healthy, happy and free of disease. We all have some low-level inflammation because we simply breathe, but even more so because of the stress in this busy world.

Every time you stress you create acid in your body. Your body is then forced to pull minerals to buffer the acid waste. The liver, lymph and kidneys begin to work hard to filter out the toxic load.

But what happens when the body is tired and clogged? When your digestive system is not working and can’t break down these foods, it can’t focus on getting RID of TOXINS. That means you cannot get rid of bloat and fat and skin breakouts and all that junk that keeps you tired.

TOXINS=>WEAK DIGESTION=>WEAK IMMUNE

  • Difficult weight management
  • Constipation/diarrhea
  • Gas/bloating
  • Headaches
  • Low energy
  • Low sex drive
  • Bad skin
  • Heartburn/reflux
  • Moodiness/depression

Get where I am going with all of this?

By detoxing you will improve digestion and free your body of inflammation and toxins in the process.

The foundation of this detox is NOT to ever feel deprived or starved.

The goal is to help you do what I have learned to do in my own life: learn how to EAT CLEAN and learn what foods are IRRITATING your body.

Join me for my detox and cleanse starting on July 21.

Now that you’ve learned a little more about the benefits of detoxing, how can you start bringing it into your daily life?

 

Here are a few of my favorite ways to stay healthy and detox naturally:

 

  1. Upon waking, drink warm or room-temperature water with lemon and 1 tsp raw apple cider vinegar (if tolerated) and add a dash of cinnamon or cayenne.
  2. Start your day by being positive. Find a scripture, prayer, or daily affirmation that gets you fired up.
  3. Try getting quiet within yourself even just for one minute and say, “I release what does not serve me.” Place your hand on your heart as you say this out loud. A more tangible way to do this is to write down what you want to release in your life and then crumple it up, tear it up, or even burn it.
  4. Drink fresh green juices, smoothies, or make your own green juice with 1 tbsp. chlorophyll and lemon and lime and water.
  5. Aim for one meal that is super easy on your digestion per day like a smoothie, green juice or soup. Give your digestion a rest.
  6. Get moving and shaking. Yes, exercise is one of the best ways to detox your body.
  7. Drink plenty of water and add lemon, lime or grapefruit to flush the toxicity.
  8. Skin brushing is my favorite way to support the liver and get rid of those toxins.
  9. Tongue brushing.
  10. Be happy and grateful for life.
