How Do You Feel?Whether you’re healthy and want to maintain your health, or one of the millions of Americans suffering from obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure or even just plain feeling crummy as a result of the Standard American Diet (SAD) , you’ll want to seriously consider detoxifying.
Why do you need to detox?Unfortunately, feeling lousy has become the “new normal” for many people. We dismiss things like carrying around extra weight, feeling achy, constantly being tired, having no sex drive, and increased risk for disease as natural side effects of aging. A healthy body, used to eating natural foods, needs around four hours to cleanse and detoxify itself from all the waste products of normal metabolism. This is without counting the toxic overload of modern life. Here is a quick list of what you may come in contact with on a daily basis, high fructose corn syrup and other food sweeteners and additives in your soft drinks, breakfast cereal, yogurt, bread bum, salad dressing, candies and much more(According to recent study by Princeton University, an average American consumes 60 pounds of high fructose corn syrup annually), residue of pesticides and fungicides on your fruits and vegetables, microplastics in your drinking water and the salt you use to season your foods, canola oil and vegetable oil just to name a few. What all of these have in common is that they contain various toxic chemicals that cause damages to the human liver and kidney. The toxins can damage the liver and impact the liver’s detoxification system causing it to malfunction. The liver's ability to digest fat can be impaired by these toxins, causing weight gain and fatty liver disease, which sharply increase risks of developing diabetes, heart diseases, and cancer. The onslaught of toxins may weaken the body's immune system. When this occurs, disease and symptoms will begin to present themselves. Look around and you will see evidence everywhere. Let us look at a few below.
