Cleansing Toxins In The Body by Living Green
There are hidden substances all around you, in the air, in your food and water. Not to get paranoid about it is a good call. You would have a hard time living, if you knew and dwelt on all the ramifications. But a good housecleaning once in a while is a good plan. As you learn to reduce, reuse and recycle in your own home and environment, you learn to reduce toxins and waste in your world. You learn to do things a different way and you learn to do without things that are potentially harmful. You can do that inside, too, in your internal environment.
Just as our world has become piled with garbage, polluted with industrial chemicals, wastes and filled with smoggy air, so is our inner world filled with the remnant of toxins that we take into our bodies unwittingly or unknowingly, day after day. These toxins suppress our body’s natural ability to function causing disease, chronic fatigue, anxieties, weight gain and many other break downs in our ability to self heal and keep well. Research is showing that over 90 percent of the pollutants that enter the body do so through the intestinal tract. The colon is the major place where absorption takes place. The rise in diseases of the colon is alarming. Colon cancer is becoming an ever increasing statistic.
Toxins are acidic, our diets are acidic, our drinking water is acidic and the stress that fills our lives is acidic, as we rush around coping with our busy schedules. Colitis, Acid Reflux, Chrone’s Disease, IBS, Diverticulitis are all based on the acidic terrain in our bodies. Arthritis, headaches, high blood pressure, and diabetes are also a result of an acidic body state. pH is key.
An acidic body terrain is called acidosis. We get like that because of our life-style choices and chronic dehydration which affects over 90 percent of the population. We’re the coffee generation, not the water generation. That’s why we’re so dehydrated.
A lot of people with an acidic body terrain are also overweight which can add to the body’s burden. The body shunts toxins off to the fat cells for storage to keep them away from your vital organs. Toxins and your vital organs are not too compatible. This fat is actually saving your life. But you don’t have to be fat to be toxic. Even Robert Bateman who eats organic food, drinks spring water and watches what he uses in his household had 42 chemicals, not related to his painting, in his body when he was tested in a national survey. I have a copy of that survey if you would like it.
There are many ways to detoxify the body, lose weight and restore the body’s natural ability to heal itself. There are lots of cleansing products on the market. They are available at any health food store. It is also a really good idea to do a parasite cleanse once a year or so, especially if you eat pork or travel to places like Mexico.
One of the easiest ways to cleanse and lose weight at the same time is with Cerra alkaline, ionized water. Because the water is alkaline, it reduces the acidic load on the body. The body is then able to hydrate properly and the osmotic pumps at the cell gateways begin to function and pump the toxins and waste into the blood stream and lymph to be eliminated. The important point about this amazing water is that it helps your body return to balance. Whatever is “wrong” is where the alkalinity, minerals, negative ions, extra oxygen and antioxidant qualities goes. A whole chain reaction starts. Your body knows how to fix itself, it just needs the right tools in its tool box. And, those tools aren’t lotions, potions or pills. All of the magic juices are acidic and contribute to acidity in your body. Your saliva needs to be 7.4 pH when you wake up in the morning. A 6.4 pH reading is ten times more acidic than it should be. A pH reading of 5.4 is 100 times more acidic than it should be. The pH scale is logarithmic so even small changes in pH can have huge consequences in the body.
When you put anything in your mouth it will have an acidic or an alkaline consequence in your body. Of course you want to enjoy life and indulge once in a while is something special to eat or drink. You don’t want to be worried about what negative consequences ” it “ is going to have on your body pH or on your toxic load. So drink some extra Cerra alkaline, ionized water to bring your body back to balance and to a more “green” state.
