Daily we clean our bodies on the outside. How often do you clean the inside???
When you consider the fact that we are are so concerned about grooming, clothing and cleaning our hair and skin, it seems ridiculous that few of us contemplate the need to clean out our bodies, internally.
The Liver is an excretory organ, responsible for purifying the system, filtering out toxins that are present in ever-increasing amounts in our foods, water and air. The liver also clears medications and excess hormones from the blood. When this organ becomes overworked, our bodies become toxic. Sometimes this symptomizes as skin disorders. Other times, the effects are deeper and more difficult to detect.
Diseases of the liver, such as Hepatitis and Cirrhosis, are on the rise. This doesn't surprise me. Toxins, chemicals and medications are on the rise, too.
Sure, the body, largely thanks to the liver, has the inborn capacity to purify itself, much like a self-cleaning oven. However, it is difficult even for a self-cleaning oven to clean itself when it is always baking.
The Skin, like the liver, also functions as an organ of excretion. When the liver is overworked, the integrity of our skin may be compromised.
In order to improve our body's chances of cleaning out accumulated substances from our body tissues (including but not limited to medications, pollutants, pesticides and herbicides, toxins), it helps to give our digestive systems a rest. Better yet, a rest plus some extra nutritional support to facilitate the removal of accumulations and boost liver capacity.
While the most thorough detoxification programs include BOTH nutritional support AND a strict diet, extra support for your liver is not without merit.
Below are some of my favorite Cleansing Aids. Milk Thistle is unsurpassed as the single best herb for liver support. It is safe and it is effective. Unfortunately, the active compound in Milk Thistle, silymarin, is usually destroyed by the digestive tract before absorption in the small intestines, so teas are useless as are many capsule forms. We sell a pure liquid that easily absorbs in the mouth, bypassing the digestive tract.
We are thrilled to carry PROTOCLEAR, a medical detoxification protein powder that much to our surprise actually tastes pretty good. Mixed with fruits and rice milk, this rice protein based supports both Phase I and Phase II of Detoxifcation and is free of common food allergens.
Feel free to email us with any questions on these products or Detoxification in general.
