Often times we are diagnosed with one thing but we still have the symptoms long after the diagnosis and/or medications that we have been prescribed. This can be frustrating and alarming.
It’s often not just one thing that is making us feel sick day after day. There are multiple items that can affect your health.
Research shows that the only truly effective and comprehensive type of detox is a cellular detox also known as cellular cleansing. Cellular cleansing is designed to remove harmful toxins from the body where they are causing the problem: at the cellular level.
A few common toxins that we encounter daily are household cleaners, mold, foods, plastics, carpets, drinking water and air quality. Prolonged exposure to these toxins can cause fatigue, brain fog, dizziness, headaches and depression to name a few. Many people feel the effects of these toxins but don’t know what the cause is or how to fix it.
To help eliminate these toxins from your body we highly recommend doing Cellular Cleansing. What exactly does that consist of?
Here are a few tips to get you started:
- Avoid Glyphosate. It is used to kill weeds, especially annual broadleaf weeds and grasses that compete with crops. This is why we recommend that you eat organic. When you choose to eat organic it eliminates the chances of having these poisons in your food. It is also a cause of “leaky gut” or intestinal permeability which can drive toxins deeper into the tissues.
- Increase good healthy fats. Good fats also support a healthy brain and cell membranes. Examples are Avocados, Cheese, Dark Chocolate, grass-fed butter, ghee, coconut oil, MCT oil, Whole Eggs, Fatty Fish, Nuts, Chia Seeds and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
- Eat NON-GMO. NON-GMO stand for Non-Genetically Modified Organisms. GMOs are novel organisms created in a laboratory using genetic modification/engineering techniques. Scientists and consumer and environmental groups have cited many health and environmental risks with foods containing GMOs
- Avoid processed sugars/foods that cause inflammation. Excess amounts of added sugar and refined carbs have been linked to inflammation. While the small amounts of fructose in fruits and vegetables are fine, getting large amounts from added sugars is not. Eat foods that help your body remove toxins naturally and decrease the amount of processed, junk foods in the diet. Including “healthy” whole grains and excessive fruits.
- Avoid bad oils – vegetable oils (soybean, canola, and safflower) and trans fats. Vegetable oils often contain massive amounts of trans fats. In one study that looked at soybean and canola oils found on store shelves in the U.S., about 0.56% to 4.2% of the fatty acids in them were toxic trans fats.
