In conventional medicine, detoxification can be achieved by removal of ingested poison and the use of antidotes as well as techniques such as dialysis and, in rare cases, chelation therapy.
In natural medicine, detoxification is essentially about taking the waste matter and toxins that are in the body and, using natural methods, extract them from the body. Atypically, this process involves using a combination herbs, homeopathic medicines and remedies to first cleanse the colon, and then cleanse the blood so the toxins can be properly filtered out of the body through natural filters like the kidneys, liver and even your skin.
Before entering into any detoxification process, it is important to consult with your physician to let them know what you are doing; they may have questions or concerns about the process, especially if you are somehow health compromised.
What enters your body through eating?
Aluminum – if you are zinc deficient in your diet, you will absorb more of this into your body. Aluminum is found in many types of food packaging and cooking utensils, but is also in substances like antacids, toothpaste, deodorants and water. It has been linked to kidney problems and can affect brain function.
Copper – found in cooking utensils, water pipes and fixtures, jewelry, swimming pool anti-fungal treatments and birth control and fertility treatments. High levels of copper leech zinc from your body. Symptoms of high levels of copper exposure include fear, paranoia and hallucinations.
Mercury – The coal-burning industries over the years have dumped large amounts of mercury into the air, which has found its way to the ground and water via rain. Pesticides also contain mercury and typically wash into the waterways during rainstorms. This mercury is found not just in the water we drink, but also in the fish we eat – the larger and fattier, the more mercury it has accumulated in its body. Mercury was also found in indoor latex paint used up until the 1990s.
Many neurological disorders are caused by mercury poisoning, but it can also lead to coma and death.
Other toxins including cadmium and lead combine with these others in a kind of toxic brew swirling around in your blood stream. Detoxing your blood is the only way to effectively remove these unfriendly elements from your body before they can damage your organs and neurological systems.
When cleansing the colon, foods high in fiber help to facilitate this process as well as other natural substances. A healthy bowel should empty about three times a day.
Knowing this, it is easy to see constipation can have an adverse affect on your body’s ability to rid itself of toxins. Healthy colon and bowel health are a vital part of the detoxification process. Once you have achieved this, cleansing the blood will more easily rid your body of toxins through the natural filters of the body.
Clinical studies show Hirudin to be the most effective non-drug blood cleanser available. It not only cleansed your blood of over 1,000 toxins found in the typical human body, but it improves blood flow and circulation. Eliminating the harmful and debilitating toxins from your blood is one of the healthiest things you can do for your body.
Cleanse the colon and then cleanse the blood. Homeopathic doctors recommend doing this at least twice every year to optimize your health and reduce the risk of disease and bad health due to toxic buildup in the blood, tissues, and organs of the body. An effective detoxification of the body will take 7-10 days, but maintaining good colon health is vital to your body’s ability to continue to naturally flush toxins from your system. Hirudin will help to eliminate the excess that can build up from the inundation of toxic elements in the environment we live in and the food and water we consume.
