Highly Recommended Detoxification Methods
Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph glands, and skin. As a matter of fact, our bodies naturally detoxify every single day.
Detoxification is something our bodies do on a daily basis. It is the process of eliminating toxins through the five eliminatory channels: Liver, colon, lungs, kidneys, lymph and skin.
Just as our hearts beat nonstop and our lungs breathe continuously, so our metabolic processes continuously dispose of accumulated toxic matter.
However, the environmental toxins of modern-day life — the pollutants, chemicals, other synthetic substances — are more than the average body can handle. The body doesn’t know what to do with foreign substances, so it will store them outside of the regular elimination system, so we don’t get poisoned. Those poisons start building up in our body fat.
The following are two highly recommended detoxification methods
1. Juice fasting
Juice fasting is a safe and easy way to detoxify the body. Fasts have been recorded in ancient history, and have been a part of many religions since time immortal. Many people with various medical conditions have discovered, that going on a short-term juice fast is an excellent method of eliminating accumulated bodily toxins.
This is due to the fact that, during raw, fresh juice fasting therapy, the eliminative and cleansing capacity of organs of elimination, namely lungs, liver, kidneys and the skin, is greatly increased and masses of accumulated metabolic waste and toxins are quickly eliminated.
The theory is that, since fresh fruit and vegetable juices are excellent body cleansers, one should undertake to drink only fresh fruit and vegetable juices for a short period of time [approximately three to seven days], in order to release the toxins that are accumulated in the body, and at the same time give the body a hefty dose of much needed vitamins and minerals. Various different juice combinations have been recommended for this initial fast period. The most common juices recommended are carrot-apple-celery, carrot-beet-celery and grape juice.
Be aware that juice fasting is not starvation; it is just a liquefied salad. The juices do provide super amounts of minerals and vitamins, plus much needed fluids.
What Does a Typical Juice Fast Involve?
A juice fast literally means drinking juice and nothing else. Between 32 and 64 ounces of juice is usually recommended per day during the fast. The juice is sipped throughout the day. Typical fruits and vegetables include celery, carrot, kale, cabbage, apple, pineapple, cranberry, spinach, beet, and greens. Citrus fruits are often avoided.
How Long Does a Juice Fast Typically Last?
A juice fast typically lasts for one to three days. A longer fast requires medical supervision and possibly monitoring to ensure that nutrient deficiencies don’t result.

Note: Due to the fact that the juices dislodge large amounts of accumulated toxic sludge from the body cells, it is usually recommended to take one or two warm water enemas daily, to help draw out the large amount of waste matter that has accumulated in the colon. Without the enemas there is the real possibility that the exiting waste matter will become reabsorbed in the body cells.
Be aware that, it is very normal to experience some distressing symptoms while undergoing a juice fast such as headaches, nausea, etc. This is due to the fact that the poisons are passing through the body.
It goes without saying that fasting is only a temporary solution; the goal should be to permanently keep your system clean and fit.
2. Liver cleansing diet
Obviously, for many people fasting is just not possible or is not recommended. For example, those with fatigue, anemia, immune weakness, nutritional deficiency, or underweight people. Nor is it suggested for pregnant or nursing mothers, or for youngsters.
Therefore, instead of undergoing a juice fast, the patient follows a specific diet that will eventually cleanse and flush the toxins from the liver and various other body cells.
We are routinely exposed to approximately seventy thousand different chemicals and – according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – over two thousand new ones are introduced into our environment each year; they’re in our cosmetics and other personal care products, medicines, the air we breathe, the surfaces we touch, the water we drink, and the foods we eat.
These chemicals make up a large part of the toxic load our liver has to deal with. A liver cleanse diet, liver cleanse supplements, or regular overall detox diet can help your liver to navigate this chemical wasteland optimize your liver’s functioning.
