DYour ability to eliminate toxins do NOT seem to be a problem
Your liver and or large intestine may be in jeopardy. You may want to add a green drink, some additional fiber to your diet and reduce the refined sugars in your diet.
The Metabolic Assessment Profile confirms liver function and your ability to detoxify and remove toxins
Are you accumulating or eliminating toxins?
Internal pollution as a result of poor elimination is a major problem that needs to be addressed. Additional fiber, green drinks, and a good detoxification, cleanse program is recommended. A colon cleanse would be recommended to help get the bowels moving. If there is a history of antibiotics, birth control pills, steroid hormones and poor diet…I would recommend a yeast/parasite cleanse.
Do NOT begin a cleanse without first strengthening your adrenals first…this will reduce the negative effects caused by most cleanses. Additional magnesium would help keep the bowels moving.
Tips to Improve Your Elimination Function:
- Fiber is needed to pull out the toxins and poisons from our body. Fiber is like the railroad carts…they carry out the toxins from our body.
- Before beginning a good cleanse to help get your bowels moving…make sure your digestive system is functioning well.
- A good cleanse to overcome constipation and stay regular should include lots of water, fiber, raw fruits and veggies…and less or NO processed refined white sugar and flour.
- A yeast/parasite cleanse is different than a cleanse to move the bowel…the goal is to eliminate the overgrowth of yeast, fungus, candida and parasites that have overgrown in your large intestines.
- Yeast/parasite overgrowth is a huge problem and effects more women than man for two simple reasons. First, women take birth control pills – men don’t.
- Second, women use more antibiotics than men. Birth control, antibiotics, and steroid hormones kill off the “good” bacteria that lines our intestines and allows the overgrowth of the harmful “bad” bacteria.
The overgrowth of the “bad” bacteria pollutes our bodies from the inside.
There are over a trillion cells of bacteria in your intestines, which do many things…
- they digest your food
- they make your B vitamins
- they account for over 50% of your immune system…VERY IMPORTANT
- Simply stated, the bacteria in your intestines digest your food and “poop” it out…the ones that “poop” out or excrete waste material that is good or beneficial for your body we call “good” bacteria. The ones that “poop” out waste material that are toxic to your body are called “bad” bacteria.
- You should have a lot more of the “good” bacteria, than the “bad” unfortunately the use of antibiotics, birth control pills, steroid hormones and poor dietary choices contribute to an imbalance of the “good” and “bad” bacteria.
- There are specific herbs to help eliminate the bad bacteria (garlic, oregano, grapefruit seed, black walnut, caprylic acid, pau d’arco, etc)
