Why and How to Detox Your Body from Harmful Chemicals

No Comments

We are born with chemicals from our parents, and we are then exposed to attack from chemicals through the lungs, mouth, intestines, and skin. Trillions of pounds of chemicals are manufactured each year, much of which will enter our air, water, and ground. Chemicals may also travel for thousands of miles from other geographic areas, where there are less stringent environmental controls. Our foods are laced with chemicals. Our bodies naturally produce toxic substances. Our clothes, lotions, soaps, shampoos, and other personal care products contain toxins absorbed through the skin.

Due to this exposure, it is wise to detoxify regularly as a routine, even in the absence of symptoms. For those with existing symptoms, it can be crucial. Detoxification starts with choosing healthy foods (natural, organic fruits and vegetables and minimal animal-based products), adequate consumption of fiber and clean water, and maintaining a clean home environment (e.g., natural household products, chemical-free building supplies, stainless steel or glass cookware, natural cleaning and laundry products, minimal plastics, and of course, no tobacco smoke). Exercise and perspiration in fresh, clean air are also important.

How to Detox Your Body

When I have patients who need to detox, I suggest the following. Treatment may vary from person to person. Refer to your doctor’s instructions.

Bathe in a bathtub of water with one cup each of baking soda and Epsom salts. In one week, increase this to two cups each. Soak in the bath for 20-30 minutes. Continue to do this unless it causes skin irritation. Once you have a routine down, increase the baths to two to three times per week.

Liver Life is a natural liver support formula that strengthens the liver to prepare for chelation, NDF, prescription antifungals, etc. Begin with your prescribed dosage mixed with water or organic juice, and gradually increase per your instructions every three to five days, twice daily. After two weeks, add NDF plus or NDF, if instructed by your doctor.

NDF plus and NDF are natural chelating agents that gently remove heavy metals, such as lead, mercury, and aluminum, and other chemicals from the body. Begin with your prescribed dosage mixed with water or organic juice, and gradually increase amounts as instructed every three to five days, twice daily. After two to three months, you may want to advance to the regular formula if you start with NDF plus.

Detox Skin Formula is another treatment that we recommend if you are learning how to detox your body. Take one dose daily for the first week, then increase to two doses the second week and three doses the third week for six months or longer.
