Detox Your Body and Your Mind

Let's Take a Life-Affirming Journey:


We may not think about this often, but our bodies endure a barrage of toxins, infections, parasites, chemicals, mold, and heavy metals from the foods we consume, the air we breathe, our environment and the stress we face every day.


For example, heavy metals like mercury amalgams in our teeth can harm our body's cells and interfere with metabolic pathways. They can act as mutagens, inhibit enzymes, interfere with aerobic respiration, and cause physiological and oxidative stress, leading to cell damage and potentially thyroid dysregulation.

 

Fortunately, the human body seeks to detoxify itself in two crucial phases. Initially, our liver breaks down toxins into manageable components. Then, through detoxification, these substances are metabolized and often eliminated from our bodies. 


I say ‘often’ because the liver isn't always able to eliminate toxins if they are not bound and excreted properly. If liver function is impaired, toxins can easily get reabsorbed back into our blood supply where they can damage nerve cells and other supporting cells. 

So, this journey requires more than a mere reduction of toxins; it demands holistic support tailored to individual needs.


Drinking ample water is just one step in aiding our detoxification system and facilitating toxin elimination. Hydration with electrolytes is foundational. Integrating and rotating specific supplements can offer much-needed relief for those grappling with chronic digestive and elimination issues.


Our bodies crave essential nutrients and minerals that are abundant in fresh vegetables and fruits. Juicing or smoothies are valuable resources to intake concentrated doses of phyto-nutrients which are vital for our well-being. Moreover, maintaining a balanced intake of macro-nutrients, especially protein, is vital. Eating plant-based protein sources like lentils, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds. Or animal sources such as organic, grass fed, free range, lean meats ensures our bodies receive the resources available to create amino acids, and in turn neurotransmitters. Amino acids are the building blocks necessary for optimal function, provided the body has proper digestion.

 

To further aid the detoxification process, we can eliminate inflammatory culprits such as gluten, dairy, coffee, alcohol, sugary and processed foods, granting our bodies a much-needed clean diet. Adding anti-inflammatory foods to our diet, like raw garlic, turmeric and ginger, can further support our health journey.

 

Beyond dietary changes, holistic self care practices like dry body brushing, castor oil packs and gentle exercise stimulates the lymphatic system, facilitating toxin removal.

 

Let’s also consider our mental health. Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you're sensing and feeling in the moment without interpretation or judgment. It is of enormous benefit. Mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, EFT tapping and other practices to relax the body and mind, rebalance neurotransmitters and help reduce stress. By fostering mindfulness and reducing EMF’s (like limiting time spent on electronic devices or social media), we embark on a mental cleanse that is crucial for holistic well-being.

 

The guidance of a holistic health coach is indispensable in any detox journey. With personalized support, a holistic health coach like yours truly will help you navigate the complexities of detoxification, empowering your body and mind to thrive.
