ANTIAGING DETOXIFICATION PLANS

 

Due to the high levels of toxins our bodies are exposed to every day, we benefit greatly from regular detoxification. Toxins are built up in fat stores to levels beyond which the body can rid them using its normal levels of cleansing activity.

Common signs of toxicity indicating the need for more detoxification action include:

  • Fatigue, Dizziness, Nausea
  • Low immunity
  • Heartburn, Offensive breath and/or body odour, Bloating, Gas – Wind, Liver problems, Constipation, Worms
  • Mucous build up
  • Skin disorders
  • Poor circulation
  • Hormone imbalances, Depression, PMS etc

Cleansing can either be done over a longer period with foods known to have detoxification properties, or you can use a commercial kit of detox herbs.
Adding detox foods to your general wellness diet can be effective in keeping these cumulative toxins at reasonable levels, but I still recommend a 2 week liver and bowel cleansing program every six months.

For simplicity I have approached the detoxification programs in three levels:

Level One – is a long term food based diet that can be maintained indefinitely. Used longer than 3 weeks, special consideration must be given to iron and protein levels.

Level Two – concentrates on raw cleansing foods and is recommended for 2-3 weeks only

Level Three – are rapid detox diets and should only be used for short periods of up to 10-14 days. Rapid detox diets include:

There are many versions of these diets, with information readily available online, so we have only included brief outlines to give you a general understanding of what each program entails.

 

Special Considerations During Detox Diets

Water a critical role in a good detoxification diet.

Niacin [Vitamin B3] plays an important role also in the detoxification of fatty tissue.

During rapid detox, certain side effects may occur. These include:

  • Bad breath
  • Digestive system responses like: stomach ache, gas, diarrhea and constipation
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • Cold and flu symptoms, fever, cough, sinus congestion
  • Skin rash or itchy skin
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Unpleasant body odour – as the body releases ketones, so it is best to plan these level of programs during times of low social engagements.


Although these symptoms are not pleasant they are a sure sign that the body is ridding itself of harmful toxins. Usually increasing water intake helps however, should they become problematic, consult the program instructions for suitable remedies that will work in with the diet plan.
