The goal of this series of articles and the goal of the Health Restoration 101 programs are to help you maximize your chances of living a longer, healthier life. Our programs are simple, comprehensive, well documented and easy to follow. “It’s not magic, but it can change your life.”

Not a day passes that someone does not ask about detox-ing.

Today, we live in an environment that is totally toxic, our foods are contaminated and even the air we breathe, and the water we drink has many know and unknown toxic chemicals. Therefore, we all need some type of detoxification to maintain life and good health.

Detox-ing is the removal of toxic chemicals from the body to allow the body to work more efficiently, and to strengthen the immune system.

We are easily able to do a basic detoxification by cleaning up our diet, taking deep breaths, and the daily shower. But after years, and in some cases, many years of poor food choices and stress, we need to fortify our internal organs which have suffered from a great lack of essential nutrients. Fortification of the liver, lungs, kidneys, bowels and blood will support these organs performance.

The liver is our filter for removing poisons and waste from the blood. The kidneys filter wastes from the blood into the urine, while the lungs remove waste as we exhale.

Our bodies are designed to use natural substances, including organic whole foods, herbs and phyto-chemicals. Foreign substances serves to stimulate the immune system to find and remove these substances. The problem is we over work the immune system doing this busy work until it wears out, and is not able to do the life saving work of saving our lives from chronic diseases, and poor stress management. Keeping our organs of elimination in good working order is essential to health.

There are many ways to detoxify the body, the most common are: Bowel cleanse, liver cleanse and blood toners. Others may aid the kidneys, lungs or the skin in their functions. By combining a good detox program with a total health program, one can effectively restore health and look younger in the process. When the body is able to remove toxins easily, health can be restored. For the detox program to be effective we must incorporate it into a healthy lifestyle program which includes good nutrition, lots of fresh clean water, exercise every day, rest, sunshine, and fresh air.

With the right plan persons with heart disease, diabetes, and with cancer can use a detoxifying program to reverse the disease process and create the life we all want, great health so that we can enjoy living.

Many clients tell me, after two or three months on the Health Restoration program that they didn’t realize how bad they felt, until they didn’t feel bad any more. Well, it took me a while to get my brain around that, ‘ How do you not know you feel bad?, because we get used to it! ‘.

The way our bodies were created allows us to live in this toxic environment and not be affected by it. However we must live right, eat right, get enough sleep, rest and fresh air, clean water and of course find good effective ways to manage stress.

Yes, we all need to detox, its like a tune up for the body.
