Lose weight quickly, get glowing skin, and create world peace by detoxing! Joking aside, I'm a big believer in cleansing when done properly (read: no starvation or drinking lemon water only all day). What is detoxing, exactly? Ideally, it involves cleansing the liver with supportive whole foods and herbs and reducing inflammation in the digestive tract and body. To elucidate why the time honored tradition of detox is necessary, let us first laud the liver. The liver is your second largest organ (behind the skin) and acts as a filter to neutralize toxins in everything you eat, drink, breathe, and apply to your skin. When it’s functioning optimally, you’ll enjoy good energy, good hormone balance, good sleep, good moods and clear skin. If you suffer from PMS, weight gain, acne, joint pain, skin rashes, high cholesterol, depression or irritability, fatigue, or just generally feeling puffy or inflamed, a congested and overworked liver could be the culprit. 1. 2.
Porridge aux flocons d’avoine Je vois vos grimaces rien qu’à lire le mot « porridge » … Mais avez-vous goûté avant de dire que ce n’est pas bon ? J’ai découvert cette spécialité anglo-saxonne servie au p’tit déjeuner lors de nos vacances au Canada et USA l’été dernier. Entre les donuts et les gauffres il y avait des petits sachets de flocons d’avoine à faire cuire au micro-ondes dans un bol de lait et le résultat était super bon (surtout celui à la cannelle). Alors après avoir bravé les douanes US avec quelques sachets piqués aux buffets des p’tits déjeuner cachés dans la valise (c’est marqué en gros et gras que la nourriture n’a pas le droit de traverser la frontière …), j’ai pris l’habitude quand j’étais en panne de pain de me préparer un porridge rapide pour le p »tit déjeuner. Et comme j’ai voulu persévérer dans mon expérience porridgienne j’ai tenté le vrai porridge cuit à la casserole, avec des petits flocons d’avoine achetés en épicerie bio. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

19 Foods To Naturally Help You Detox Radiation By T.M. Hartle We all remember the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March 2011 and damaged the Fukushima power plant, causing radiation to leak into the environment. Although it seems like it was so long ago, the health hazards are still real and happening today. TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Co) finally admitted in July this year that radioactive water has been leaking from the plant since the accident and new studies have also shown that it will likely reach the U.S. coastal waters by the beginning of 2014 and peak in 2016. “Hazardous radioactive elements being released in the sea and air around Fukushima accumulate at each step of various food chains (for example, into algae, crustaceans, small fish, bigger fish, then humans; or soil, grass, cow’s meat and milk, then humans). Luckily two ocean currents have diluted the radioactive material and have caused the concentration levels to fall below the World Health Organization's safety levels.

4 Tips For A Healthy Detox (You Don't Need To Starve Yourself!) Detoxification is a normal bodily process. Toxins are neutralized and processed for elimination through major organs like the liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph system and skin, all of which work together to cleanse the body of toxins on a daily basis. The ability of the body to rid itself of excess waste matter and toxins is critical to survival and key to good health. As long as the elimination system is in good working order, and the amount of toxic residue does not outweigh the rate at which it can be disposed of, in general, the body thrives. With that in mind, here are four simple tips to ensure a healthy detox. 1. During a detox program, the goal is to minimize exposure to toxins in the diet and the environment as much as possible. 2. When food isn’t processed properly in the digestive system, even good food can go bad. 3. Chronic, low-grade inflammation is thought to play a role in many of the chronic diseases so common in the Western world. 4. Photo Credit: Shutterstock.com
Why You Need to Detoxify 24 Hours a Day by Dr. Leo Galland I want to change what you think about detoxification. Let me explain. When I talk about detoxification, I don’t mean making an appointment to get your colon cleansed or going on a fast. Because detoxification is not some part-time gig. Detoxification is a full-time job for your body; a natural, ongoing process that happens 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And with all the toxins and stress in the modern world, it is a lot of work. You know that we are all exposed to toxins in the air we breathe, water we drink, and products we use. (1) But are you aware that how well, or how poorly, your body is able to detoxify will in a large part determine how well or sick you feel? I have observed that exposure to environmental toxins can promote a wide variety of ailments. My observation is confirmed in the New York University Medical Center guide Staying Healthy in a Risky Environment, which lists a vast number of symptoms and conditions that can be impacted by environmental factors. 18.)
5 Healthier Ways to Detox (That Aren’t Juice Cleanses) He might be 80, but former lieutenant governor Richard Ravitch, out with a new memoir, has the same gleam in his eye—and he’s still warning of crises. Andrew Cuomo, call your office. The man who rescue helped rescue New York City from bankruptcy in the 1970s says New York is in deep financial trouble again. And this time, it’s the whole state that’s in deep. Dick Ravitch, the longtime New York power broker and financial guru, can smell it when smiling politicians proclaim their governments’ budgets fully balanced. He’s been calling them out for years—but often finds his warnings unheeded. Releasing a memoir, Ravitch, 80, is trying to shake people by the lapels once again, with the next generations in mind. “While a generous society can and should provide the necessities of life to its poorer citizens,” he writes, “we owe it to ourselves to be honest about the costs.” Too much of this nation, he said, is eating its own seed corn, to use one of his folksy analogies.
Chlorella for Detoxification 60+% of Nature's Balance Chlorella is superior protein, providing all of the dietary-essential amino acids in excellent ratios. Chlorella is also a reliable source of essential fatty acids that are required for many important biochemical functions, including hormone balance. Nature's Balance Chlorella is cultivated outdoors in mineral-rich freshwater ponds. The entire process from strain maintenance in the laboratory to harvesting of the final product is monitored by microbiologists to ensure optimal nutrient value and product purity. Chlorella has been the focus of many medical and scientific research projects since the 1960s, many of which have been devoted to studying the mechanisms by which it accelerates the body’s capacity to detoxify heavy metal and chemical toxins. Another well-researched feature has been its ability to strengthen the innate immune response. In Japan, chlorella is by far the most popular nutritional supplement today, with over seven million daily users. Silav, V.
