CLEANSING THE BODY       

       We live in a very toxic environment.  Pesticides and herbicides are routinely used in agriculture and we ingest these poisons through the food we eat.  Thousands of chemical compounds are used in manufacturing.  Many of these chemicals have been found to be toxic to the body and associated with a variety of degenerative disease.

      Our bodies are designed to deal with toxins.  The skin, lungs, colon, lymphatic system, liver and kidneys do a fantastic job considering what they are up against.  Too often, however, these organs become overwhelmed and that is when we fall victim to the effects of toxicity.   We can assist our body's war against toxic overload with several proven cleansing products.

       Cleanse the liver:  The liver is the “chief chemist” of the body in that it performs more than 500 functions including the elimination of toxins.  The liver is largely responsible for eliminating the toxins we ingest through the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe.  The liver is also responsible for eliminating the toxins generated by pharmaceutical drugs we may be taking.  The product of choice for cleansing the liver is LiverCareLiverCare is used all over the world by health care practitioners.   It is composed of five herbs that have all been shown to have a therapeutic affect on the liver by increasing its ability to do its many jobs.  Over 300 studies have been done showing the beneficial effects of LiverCare.  So effective is this product that it is used in the treatment of serious liver diseases such as hepatitis C and cirrhosis.  

       Cleanse the colon:  The major route for the elimination of toxins is the colon (large intestine).  It is in the colon where the wastes of metabolism are accumulated.  If these wastes are not eliminated on a regular daily basis, they will begin to create toxins that will find their way into other areas of the body. Waste material that is not eliminated will also begin to accumulate on the walls of the colon creating the potential for a variety of colon diseases such as diverticulosis, diverticulitis, colitis, spastic colon, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Cohn’s disease and colon cancer. 

       The key to preventing colon problems is to increase transit time.  Transit time is the time it takes from the moment you eat a meal to the time you eliminate the wastes from the digestion of that meal.  The shorter the transit time, the less chance there is of waste material accumulating and sticking to the walls of the colon.  Increasing the amount of fiber in your diet will increase transit time.

       Psyllium seed fiber provides an excellent bulking agent and facilitates a soft and easy to eliminate stool.  Using psyllium seed fiber over an extended period of time will accomplish a slow and gentle removal of impacted waste material from the colon.  In addition to psyllium seed fiber, flax seed fiber and oat bran fiber will help facilitate good stool function. Ground up flax seed provides many nutrients plus good balance between mucilaginous (water holding) fiber and roughage (non-water holding) fiber.  Oat bran fiber, in addition to providing good mucilaginous fiber, has also been shown to help lower cholesterol levels.

       The product Herbal Fiber Blend has proven to be very effective in facilitating good bowel function and cleansing of the colon. This product consists of a variety of cleansing herbs along with psyllium seed fiber. Herbal Fiber Blend has been shown to effectively cleanse the colon of impacted waste material along with ridding the colon of parasites and other unwanted residents that may be present.

         An important point to remember when increasing the fiber content of the diet is to also increase the amount of water that you drink.  Water is a critical component of the entire waste removal process and fiber demands water for it to properly facilitate waste elimination.  Try to drink purified water!

       Cleanse the whole body: To do a total body cleanse, we recommend the product Ultimate Cleanse.  This product is designed to facilitate detoxification of the liver, colon, kidneys, blood, lymphatics and other tissue systems of the body.  This product is made up of a variety of herbs that have demonstrated effectiveness in helping detoxify the body’s organ systems.  Ultimate Cleanse provides herbs such as hawthorn berries for the heart and digestion, red clover, red raspberry and burdock root to cleanse the blood and milk thistle and skullcap to support the liver.  These are just some of the ingredients that make up this product.
