Cleansing & Detoxifying: The Key to a healthy Lifestyle
Cleansing & Detoxifying is the height of focus in the Herbal Products Industry, because it directly address maintain of good health. The body was made to get rid of toxins and stress, via proper digestive function, sweating, etc.
In the modern world, the stress put upon the body has increased significantly for multiple reasons. Much of the food we eat is farmed for mass markets and has lower nutritional value. There are increased toxins due to additives in food and water and increased exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (electric and radio waves). The use of birth control, HRT, and other regular medications decrease the body's ability to exude toxins. Potentially, the biggest change is the increased production expectations in the work place and the associated occupational stress.
Is Your Mass Transit Running on Schedule?
Are you one of those individuals that believe just because you have one bowel elimination a day your mass transit is running on schedule? Or, worse yet, have you been lead to believe that eliminating once or twice a week is "normal?" Have I got news for you!
The toxic matter that builds in our colon requires daily "brushing" and periodic "deep cleansing." Just consider this: An adult colon can have as much as 20 to 25 lbs. of impacted fecal matter at anyone time-not a pretty thought, but a realistic and common condition. If you don't experience two to three effortless, odorless bowel movements each day, you're setting your body up for failure. A toxic intestinal environment is at the "gut" cause of many disorders not heard of until recent years, yet physicians and patients do not consider that a toxic colon (auto-intoxication) may be to blame.
Intestinal-toxic-load is not a condition to be taken lightly-it becomes deadly poisons that can be recirculated throughout the body via the bloodstream. Consequently, this places an extra burden on the liver, the organ most relied upon to neutralize substances in order to maintain health and preserve life. All blood leaving the intestines goes through the liver first before it is sent out to the rest of the body. When toxins are being "dumped" into the liver, faster than its ability to neutralize them, chronic and degenerative diseases are created.
Shortening the Commute
Without daily supplementation with sufficient fiber, the transit time of what we consume takes longer and toxic waste matter is allowed to remain in the bowels. This process allows proteins to putrefy, fats to rancid, and carbohydrates to ferment. The longer the body is exposed to rotting food in the intestines, the greater the risk of developing a disease. As the illustration shows, even with one bowel movement per day and consuming a high-fiber diet, there are still at least three meals worth of waste sitting in the colon. A comprehensive colon-cleansing fiber supplement shortens the mass transit time-safely and effectively lessening the risk of intestinal pollution becoming a catalyst for disease.
A Health Barometer
The reality is that bowel transit time is one of the best barometers of your overall health. Americans, with their standard diet of over-processed and refined foods, have an unhealthy, low fiber diet with a transit time of up to 100 hours as illustrated. However, those on a high fiber diet, along with a comprehensive colon cleansing fiber supplement, can shorten the commute of what they've consumed down to 20 hours or less.
Fiber, particularly, plays a vital role in preventing many degenerative diseases, primarily heart disease, diabetes, colon and hormone-related cancers. Because our modern day diets are devoid of the fiber and nutrients our grandparents' benefited from, supplementation is a must. It is unreasonable to think we can eat our way to a faster commute without additional supplemental fiber. If we did, we'd have to eat the equivalent of 2 large platters of raw vegetables daily. I don't know about you, but my teeth and jaw get tired just thinking about that much chewing-not to mention the fact that most of us don't take time to chew properly for maximum benefit.
Roadblocks to a Short Commute
An additional consideration is the amount of time our modern society spends sitting on the commute to work, at computers, watching television and behind a desk in general. This sedentary lifestyle does not assist in exercising the waste out of the body, if anything; it lengthens the commute time in the intestinal system, from lack of movement.
Cleaning and Detoxifying products support the body's natural function in exuding these stresses from the body. It is like giving your car an oil change. You are flushing out the daily build up and bad element to increase daily performance. Cleansing & Detoxification is something that should be done regularly as a part of health maintenance.
Products work in a variety of ways to improve the body's health functioning. Products such as Body & Sole Patches increase circulation in a manner that helps to release toxic build up in the muscles and joints.
BodyCleanse and work on the digestive function helping to support the liver function and stomach enzymes. It can also help clear out build up in the intestinal tract. For the particularly toxic environment, Milk Thistle supports liver, kidney, and spleen function.
Symptoms that can be helped by Detoxification:
Poor Immune Function
Poor Digestion & ExcretoryFunction
Muscle Cramps & Joint Pain
Lack of Energy & General Well being
The Environmental Protection Agency has determined that the amount of environmental toxins in the air, groundwater, and soil has increased significantly in the last 40 years. In fact, the use of pesticides has doubled every ten years since 1945. Americans are increasingly exposed to heavy metals, pesticides, fossil fuel emissions, sulfur oxides, hydrocarbons, and other harmful chemicals. The Environmental Protection Agency reports that traces of toxic chemicals can now be found in nearly every American.
How Has The Modern World Increased Toxins In The Body?
There have been numerous changes in modern society that have created additional stress on the body's cleansing system. Among those are:
Changes in agricultural production and food packaging lead to decreased nutritional value
Increased ingestion of preservatives
Expanding usage Of chemical additives in food and water can have a negative toxic effect on the body over time
Increased usage of common hormone prescriptions such As HRT and those used for birth control decrease the body's ability to exude toxins
It is also believed that the increase in Electromagnetic Field (EMF) bandwidth from radio and electric waves in the air and continuous exposure to combustible materials such as oil and gas from automobiles disrupt and add stress to the body's digestive and cleansing processes.
