spring clean for better healthFor those of you who joined us on the webinar on our 30-day detoxification program today, we want to thank you and hope you learned some new things!  Here are the notes in summary format for you to keep as a reference.  For those who missed it, please let me know that you’re interested and I can make sure to notify you the next time around.

What is a Toxin?

  • Any substance that produces a harmful or irritating affect on the body.
  • Toxins impact your body’s ability to function optimally.
  • In innate wisdom, the body stores them away and tries to sequester them (in adipose and other tissues).

Where Do Toxins Come From?

  • Air – pollution, coal-burning power plants, car exhaust
  • Water – heavy metals (lead), chlorine, fluoride
  • Food – pesticides, fertilizers, antibiotics, hormones, heavy metals (esp seafood)
  • Other – amalgam fillings, vaccines, plastics, pharmaceuticals, cleaning products, personal care products

Why is Detoxification Important?

  • Reducing chance of chronic disease
  • Faster recovery from chronic disease
  • More energy
  • Better quality sleep
  • Weight loss
  • Faster recovery from illness, exercise
  • Hormonal balance
  • Emotional balance
  • Feeling and looking more vibrant and energized

How Are Toxins Processed and Eliminated?

  • Lymphatic system brings toxins back into central blood stream
  • Liver – has to process majority of toxins and get them ready for elimination by other organs
  • Organs of elimination –
  • Skin – sweating
  • Lungs – breathing
  • Kidneys – urinating
  • Bowels – defecating
  • Having a healthy digestive system is crucial for healthy detoxification and maintaining a balanced system – “Healthy Microbiome”

Detox Programs vs Everyday Ongoing Detox

Detox programs (7-30 days) –

  • can be a good jumpstart
  • can reset dietary and lifestyle habits
  • be careful of ‘rebounding’ back to old habits at the end

Everyday ongoing detox –

  • sets people up to gently but consistently detoxify throughout their lives
  • makes people more aware of incoming toxins and ongoing healthy choices to prevent them

Nutritional Strategies to Support Detoxification

  • Minimize incoming toxins –
  • drink only filtered, clean water, preferably alkaline – not tap water
  • drink at least ½ gallon per day – add lemon or grapefruit oil
  • eat organic as much as possible
  • choose organic/ free-range eggs and organic poultry and meat that has not been exposed to any hormones or antibiotics. Grass-fed where possible
  • Sugar is a TOXIN!!!
  • Eat lots of dietary fiber – need to sweep toxins out of the bowel and eliminate them, not have them reabsorbed into the blood stream. Consider adding 1 tablespoon ground flax to a smoothie; other options are psyllium husk or ground chia.
  • Minimize foods that cause immune reactions and sensitivities –
  • test food sensitivities through blood testing
  • avoid foods that make you feel off, lethargic, bloated or sick
  • minimize inflammatory foods – gluten and dairy

Lifestyle Strategies to Support Detoxification

  • Sleep is key – at least 8 hours a night is ideal.
  • Essential oils for sleep – geranium, vetiver, marjoram, lavender, cedarwood.
  • Much detoxification happens at night when the body has a chance to rest and do it’s repair and regeneration.
  • Emotions – watch for toxic thoughts and emotions. Seek personal growth and development through counseling, journaling, Emotional Freedom Technique.

Use essential oils to support healthy emotional wellbeing –

  • Grounding Blend – grounding blend, calming for the mind
  • Calming Blend – calming and soothing
  • Joyful Blend – uplifting, joyful blend
  • Invigorating Blend – uplifting, energizing blend
  • Spiritual – prayer and meditation to detox the mind and spirit! Start with a few minutes every day.
  • Detox your home – non-toxic cleaning and personal care products to reduce chemical exposure.

Other Tools To Support Detoxification

Detox Baths

  • 1 cup Epsom salts
  • 4 drops each of lavender, geranium and lemongrass
  • Soak for 20-30 minutes.
  • Couple with drinking lots of water (with lemon oil added).

Massage

  • Lymphatic Drainage massage can be great for mobilizing toxins and moving them towards channels of elimination.
  • AromaTouch technique – a hands-on method of applying essential oils, created to combat four systemic constants: stress, toxic insult, inflammation, and autonomic imbalance.

Skin Brushing

  • Increases circulation and oxygenation of tissues; assists in the ‘sweeping’ of lymphatic fluid up towards the heart.
  • Use a boar-hair brush, only brush dry skin (before a shower best).
  • Always sweep towards the heart, except for across the chest area sweep towards armpits.

Rebounding

  • Also good for the lymphatic system.
  • Can be good for those who are not well enough to exercise.

  • Good for pain and fatigue too.
