Natural Detox

Health Body/Healthy Life

April 24, 2009

Toxification of human body occurs both due the external as well as internal sources. Some of the common external sources which build up the toxins in the fatty tissue related to inhalation are smoking, air pollution, dental amalgam fillings, related to ingestion are chemical residues in food, in water, drugs. The internal sources of toxicity are fermentation, purification from undigested food consumed, dehydration, malnutrition toxic thoughts and emotions. With the growth of chemicals in the environment, foods and medicines the ability to get rid of toxins has been greatly altered. The recovery of health and improvement of diet shows unpleasant symptoms. The effect of toxins on health doesn’t occur overnight, it is progressive. Similarly recovery is also progressive; it may take weeks, months or even year. Life is as series of cycle which is associated with production of energy, its storage and its discharge. This is a general cycle defining all organisms that are alive. The daily pattern of all creatures if studied shows similar pattern of rest and work and sleep. The body has some biological rhythms that decide the period of the tissue growth and repair, elimination of waste etc. In fact blood pressure, body temperature, hormone levels, brain activity and other functions obey this cycle which is called as circadian. These rhythms are interaction between external cues and internal clock related to earth’s magnetism, gravitation field, electrical fields, cosmic radiations and other planet’s motion. Our body has twelve acupuncture meridians each has heightened activity for two hours, totalling 24 hours hence the cycle called as circadian is similar to rotation of earth. The body has bio rhythms of 28 days for emotional, 14 days for physical, and then has 33 days for the mental aspects. The healing effect is found to be cyclic. Some days it is noticed that the body have high energy level and hence could rebuild tissues which makes us feel very great. Some other day body detoxifies and removes accumulated toxins, which makes us to experience low level of depression and energy. These days the life style led by most of the people and the diet pattern followed by them inhibits this body cycle of natural detoxification. Body cleaning itself through cold but the person takes medicine of cold that suppress the body natural detoxification process and the body abandons its effort of cleaning. When body cleans heavily we had a feeling of , but we feel great the very next day as toxins are cleaned. The feeling is so great that body digs more inside the body and remove some of the toxins which may be older, we feel again worse. This cycle of healing is a continuous process. Once the body achieves a certain level of health then these cycles are not noticed appreciably and hence they cause least discomfort.

Comment from Leslie

Most excellent article – we do not hear enough of how our bodies/minds/emotions are tied to the cycles of life that surround us.  Living outside of cycle  in my humble opinion,  is the root cause of “disease” (imbalance.)  A simple concept when you think about it.

Women are innately attuned to this ebb and flow through the hormone changes that occur in the menstrual cyclePlease see Female Mystique – The Three Phases of Eve for more information.
