How To Cleanse The Body

Dr. Tom’s Easy and Natural way to cleanse, detox, and lose weight.

How to cleanse the body?
“The only transformer and alchemist that turns everything into gold is love.  The only magic against death, aging, ordinary life, is love.” Anais Nin

There are many methods to cleanse the body. Many choose water and juice fasts, colonics,  or popular “fat burning” products (which often contain detrimental or overstimulating herbal ingredients). Some are billed as colon cleansing programs or liver cleansing programs. Some programs last a weekend or are 21 or 28 Day Body Cleansing Programs.

Not only have I tried many of them but I have also seen many clients over the last 15 years who have also tried them. As a physician, I have come to realize that many many people are just too toxic, overstressed, and overwhelmed to do many of these intensive “extreme” programs like fasting or even juice cleansing by itself. Many simply do not make the time to  do longer programs. Many simply do not like the taste of “Detox and Cleansing Shakes”. I have taken notes from all these cleanses and taken the best aspects from each and weaved them into a very easy & natural total body cleansing program.

That is why I have put together my Easy and Natural Detox and Weight Loss Cleanse Kit. This 10 Day Body Cleansing Program is an easy to use kit containing products and my cleansing guide FREE when you order the kit. Its easy and natural and you eat plenty of foods. You do not fast, nor are you deprived of healthy foods. Its also is a nice length of time to discover cleansing for the first time without being overwhelming. Its also great for those have busy lives.

Popular cleanses:
•    Sea salt cleanse
•    master cleanse
•    lemonade cleanse
•    juice cleanse
•    clear cleanse
•    blueprint cleanse
•    clean detox
•    blue cleanse
•    3 day cleanse
•    21 day cleanse
•    colon cleansing
•    yeast cleanse
•    parasite cleanse

All of the above, in my opinion fail to look at the whole picture of health, which is: what is the person going to be able to complete successfully that will target the whole body and all the detoxification organs in the body while being simple, easy, and natural.Some I feel are too harsh, some are not thorough enough, and some might be too challenging for people to succeed at…I want people to succeed and complete there cleanse..that’s why i developed my Easy and Natural Detox and Weight Loss Cleanse Kit

What is Cleansing?
“Let food be your medicine” –Hippocrates, doctor and proponent of cleansing and fasting

Cleansing or detoxification is simply reducing toxins and chemicals in your body by increasing metabolism so that your body functions better. If your body functions better, you will notice more energy, vitality, and a general sense of wellness. You may also prevent age-related diseases like cancer, obesity, heart disease, arthritis, and depression.

Cleansing changed my life and it can do the same for you. Its a simple process with many benefits (although it may be challenging changing unhealthy behaviors.)  All it takes is the courage to take a leap and belief you can do it! You will soon realize that not only can you make changes, like giving up coffee and bread, but you can thrive without them.

What are toxins in the body? Are we all toxic?
Toxins may be external or internal in origin. External toxins can put undue stress on our detox organs and overwhelm them especially the liver and kidneys. Internal toxins result from improper digestion and metabolism of toxins in the gut.

Examples of external toxins are: pesticides on non organic fruits and vegetables, herbicides, food additives, dyes, cosmetics, household cleaning products, plastics, paint fumes, solvents, perfumes, second hand smoke, industrial air pollution, water pollution (fluorine, chlorine, heavy metals, other chemicals), heavy metals like arsenic in mass produced chicken, formaldehyde in vaccines/clothing/carpets, dry cleaning chemicals, molds, viruses, bacteria, parasites, pollen, EMF’s, radiation for flying or medical diagnostic testing, prescription medications, plus many more unfortunately, hydrogenated oils in processed foods, hormones and antibiotics in milk and animal products, caffeine in excess, sugar, alcohol and other drugs, Iron overload (hemachromatosis), and now possibly genetically modified foods (GMOs)

We are living in a dirty world. There are approximately 100,000 chemicals that are used commercially and 25,000 (25%) are known to be hazardous to human health are possibly linked to cancers, autoimmune disorders, and obesity.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that hundreds of these chemicals are present in our bodies. Research shows that 100% of human fat cell biopsies show elevated levels of toxins, some of include heavy metals, benzenes, PCBs, organophosphates, and many others. Research has shown that many of these chemicals can disrupt our immune, endocrine, nervous, and reproductive systems.

Examples of internal toxins are:
•    Food allergies such as gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, corn, peanuts, nightshades
•    Waste by-products that are not completely metabolized in the gut because we lack the proper good bacteria or flora (probiotics)
•    Free radicals
•    Hormonal overload (estrogen, insulin, cortisol) that overwhelms our liver
•    Toxic Emotions that are not expressed such as worry, grief, fear, regret, anger, jealousy, greed, attachment, heartache
•    Toxic Memories which are buried and not processed such as: loss, rape, embarrassment, abuse, shame, violence, abandonment, guilt

Our bodies have three options when it comes to dealing with toxic chemicals:
•    Remove them from the body (via the liver, lungs, kidneys, skin, and colon)
•    Bury them in body fat (thus those that are obese are probably more toxic)
•    Deposit them in tissues (possibly contributing to aches, pains, weakness in the body)

WE ARE equal to  WHAT WE EAT, DRINK, BREATHE, INGEST, AND TOUCH         minus WHAT WE CANNOT ELIMINATE

Cleansing can fundamentally change who and what we are.

Our natural ability to detoxify becomes impaired:
•    when we have on overwhelming toxic load and we do not regularly cleanse
•    when we cannot excrete properly as in constipation, kidney problems, lymphedema
•    when we do not have the proper fuel (healthy foods, antioxidants, proteins, quality fats, and other nutrients and vitamins) to promote the detoxification pathways in the liver

How do our bodies naturally detoxify?
Our bodies detox continuously as a natural function. It’s only when our detox mechanisms become overloaded with external or internal toxins that the process becomes less efficient and symptoms may occur. Our major detoxification organs in the body are the liver, kidneys, colon, lungs, and skin. They all work together and when one works harder than it should, the other organs pick up the slack and thats when you might get symptoms of toxicity

Liver:
•    filters toxins and helps to balance all our hormones
•    helps us metabolize fats, protein, and carbohydrates,
•    helps transform many toxins into harmless agents. Its the most important “factory” in the body filtering two quarts of blood each and every minute
•    metabolizes all medications, drugs, alcohol, etc

If the liver gets overloaded with toxins, you may experience increased sensitivities to medications or drugs, hormonal imbalance like PMS, and the emotions of anger, irritability, impatience. DO YOU NEED A CLEANSE?

Kidneys:
•    filter waste and excess fluid from the blood and body
•    regulates and helps balance your electrolytes in the body such as potassium, sodium, and phosphorus

If kidneys get overloaded with toxins, you may retain water, gain weight, and have more emotions of anxiety, worry, or fear. DO YOU NEED A CLEANSE? Take Dr. Tom’s Cleansing and Detox Quiz

Colon:
•    helps to digest food and absorb vitamins and nutrients
•    is only one cell layer thick barrier between you and outside world. This barrier lining holds the vast majority of your immune cells we need our colons to be healthy
•    absorbs water and electrolytes, and fat soluble vitamins.
•    produces antibodies for our protection
•    contain hopefully good bacteria which help to manufacture Vitamins B, K for entire body
•    helps eliminate yeast, bacteria, viruses and parasites if properly functioning

If you have a history of or are currently constipated, I would encourage you to correct this as your risks for serious disease go up dramatically for things like cancer. Chemicals that are metabolized by your liver end up in the colon and will be reabsorbed if you do not eliminate daily. One way to help prevent breast cancer is to NOT be constipated. DO YOU NEED A CLEANSE?

Lungs:
•    help to filter our blood and release  toxic free radicals

If you your lungs are overloaded, you may be also have be more prone to grief and disappointment. Lungs are very much connected to your colon as well. So if your colon needs cleansing, your lungs probably do as well.

Skin:
•    is by surface area your largest detox organ in your body
•    through sweating, you have one of the only ways to detoxify heavy metals in the body.
•    has to work harder when the other organs of elimination (detoxification) are overwhelmed by toxins. You most likely will be prone to more skin rashes if this were the case. DO YOU NEED A CLEANSE?

Why do I need a cleanse?
“For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death. In the less than two decades of their use, the synthetic pesticides have been so thoroughly distributed throughout the animate and inanimate world that they occur virtually everywhere.”
                    Rachel Carson, Silent Spring.1962

This was written in 1962, imagine now our situation. As a Naturopathic Doctor, I firmly believe that cleansing is vital to our health and longevity. Cleansing and detoxification is one of the oldest self healing traditions we have and still one of the absolute best. Cleansing is about letting go on all levels of “stuff and things” that do not support your health, happiness, and vitality. Those that argue the validity of cleansing probably have never done one and are coming from a place of what they were told.

“All I know is that when I see someone come to one of my workshops or retreats or does a supervised cleansing program with me, they generally feel a lot better and many of their symptoms clear up. “

Ask yourself these questions:
Would you drive your car for 10 years without an oil change?
Would you live in your house for 10 years without once cleaning it?

The answers to these two questions is simple. In fact, most of you would not even consider not cleaning your car or house.

Cleansing is this same process…its an oil change, it’s spring cleaning. You have ONLY one body,which houses your brain and spirit. If you do not regularly cleanse, you will be overloaded with toxins and you will feel this as symptoms in your body. We must treat our bodies with the same attention as we do our cars and houses. We can loose our car and house and still survive and thrive, but we cannot live without our bodies. Even though we may live in a dirty world, we do not have live in a dirty body.
