Detoxification Diet

Detoxification Diet

A Detoxification Diet is very important to help the body remove toxins and other waste products. It is urgent in cases of physical and mental diseases.

Following a Detoxification Diet is of the utmost importance. Most people can't avoid everyday pollutants, but they can take steps to protect their health using a healing Diet. Once environmental illness is diagnosed, the logical first step is removing the offending toxins from a person's environment and begin body Eating. Only then can getting well begin. A Detoxification Diet is the key to this process.
First, harmful foods - foods to avoid:

  • Margarine
  • Chloriated water
  • Aspartame
  • Sugar
  • Soft drinks
  • Pork
  • Junk foods

What should a Detoxification Diet consist of?

An important part of your Detoxification Diet should be water, healthy foods, vegetables, fruits, healthy fats (olive oil) and consume preferably alkaline foods (click here).

Eat primarily foods that contain live enzymes, life force and nutrients. "Foods" that lack these elements form acids, causing toxins and mucous, especially congesting the intestinal tract. Over time, if you keep Eating acid foods this congestion builds up, layer after layer, until you form a hardened layer of plaque. This substance is known as "mucoid fecal plaque" and is believed to contribute towards more than 90% of the obstacles to optimal health.

A good Detoxification Diet will get your body alkaline. The acid/alkaline balance of your body needs to be managed. Most people today have an over acid body, primarily from a Diet of acid-forming foods and stress. It's difficult to be acid and totally healthy. Becoming acidic is one of the first steps toward illness. It's almost impossible to find someone with a disease who is not over acid. More about the critical role of body PH.

You see here the advantage of Eating alkaline food. The benefits are:

  • May increase Physical vitality and stamina
  • May enhance mental clarity and acuity
  • May increase ability to get on with other people.
  • May increase optimism and vision.
  • May give faster recovery from illness, injury, and exertion (incl. colds, flu, sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, allergies,traumatic injury and surgery)
  • May give increased resistence to illness (colds, flu, sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumoia)
  • May reduce incidence of digestive problems such as heartburn, irritable colon, Crohn’s disease and colitis.
  • May reduces risk of and increases relief from urinary tract conditions such as bacterial cystitis, interstitial cystitis, and uric-acid kidney stones.
  • May reduce risk of gout.
  • May reduces risk of and helps in treatment of rheumatoid artritis and other autoimmune diseases.
  • May lower risk of osteoporosis and promotes bone and teeth growth.
  • May aid in prevention and treatment of diabetes.
  • May reduce hypertension.
  • May also reduce the risk of cancer.
  • Anytime the body drops from full vitality, weakened areas result. Stress alone may create the over acidity which leads to mucoid plaque. And stress often prompts deviation from a good Diet as the person seeks comfort or quick energy through acid-forming foods.

Other natural therapies, such as acupuncture, massage, and chiropractic may help in treating some problems so that we will not need drugs for them. Avoiding or minimizing exposure to chemicals at home and work is also important. This lessens our total toxic load. Substituting natural cleansers, cosmetics, and clothes is helpful. Use a pyramid to increase vitality of your food.

One form of the Detoxification Diet is one made up exclusively of fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, either raw or cooked, and whole grains, both cooked and sprouted; however, no breads or baked goods, animal foods and dairy products or alcohol are used. This Diet keeps fiber and water intake up and helps colon Eating. Most people can handle this well and make the shift from their regular Diet with a few days transition.

The next level of Eating involves a Diet consisting solely of fruits and raw vegetables, all cleansing foods. The green vegetables, especially the chlorophyllic and high-nutrient leafy greens, are very cleansing and supportive for purification of the gastrointestinal tract and the whole body.

A raw foods Diet is fulfilling for many people, very high in energy and nutrition. This type of cleansing Diet contains lots of sprouted greens from seeds and grains such as wheat, buckwheat, sunflower and alfalfa ; sprouted beans; soaked or sprouted raw nuts; and fresh fruits and vegetables. Cooking food is not allowed with this Diet; Eating foods raw maintains the highest concentrations of vitamins, minerals and important enzymes, and allows them to find their way into our body and cells. Many people feel that this is the best of Diets; it can be health supportive over quite some time if it is balanced properly.
