Generally, body detoxification while you are pregnant is not recommended and most doctors will even advise against it. Pregnant women are in a natural cycle of detoxing and do not need to attempt or perform any type of detoxing regime or program. However, you are allowed gentle herbs if you would like to add more nutrients to your daily intake. Most herbal teas are safe but always consult a physician before adding anything new to your diet.
Trying to detoxify your body while pregnant can create serious and possibly fatal risks for your baby. In the process of detoxification your body will release toxins from your body through any of the elimination channels of your body. For a woman, the uterus is one of those six channels.
You can see why this could potentially be fatal to your fetus. There are herbs normally used to detox your body that can stimulate the uterus and cause it to expel toxins. If this is done while the woman is pregnant it could cause serious harm to the growing baby. There are also herbs that can cause uterine contractions and will most likely cause the body to induce a spontaneous abortion.
However, there are simple ways that pregnant women can get the healthy benefits of detoxing without any herbal or chemical program. The most common and healthiest way is to eat plenty of raw fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and to drink plenty of water. This might seem like a ‘generic’ path to health but it remains the only absolute sure way of keeping toxins out of your body.
If you continue to follow the raw food path along with your prenatal vitamins, you will be providing your body with everything that it needs to cleanse itself naturally. Also, don’t forget about fruit and vegetable drinks! They can be a healthy addition available to you while you focus on the valuable nutrition that your baby needs. This is the best, and safest, way of detoxing your body while being pregnant and keeping your unborn baby safe at the same time.
Need a colon cleanse? Have you been feeling ‘sluggish’ lately? Tummy feeling a bit off? Your bodies and especially your colons get clogged up if your diet consists of fried food, caffeine, sugar, processed food, in other words, a modern diet. Perhaps then it’s time for your colon to have a ‘spring clean’! Now you are asking yourself – how can I spring clean my colon? The answer is simple:- a detox.
Spring cleaning your colon with a colon cleanse two or three times a year offers your body an opportunity to clean out the poisons of modern day living. Your liver, kidneys, blood and especially your colon become rejuvenated and function at their optimum level. This increases the prospect of having a longer life as your body is fitter, healthier and happier.
The most important thing to remember is that you are ‘cleaning your colon’ and dumping the rubbish in the ‘bin’ – the toilet. Always ensure that you follow the instructions precisely for best results, and stay near a toilet! Don’t be embarrassed, this is exactly the results you want. You will feel so much healthier, energised, fresh, full of life and ‘cleaner’!
There are also many books and articles written and published about Colon cleansing and detoxing. One of the most popular is the ‘Do It Yourself 5 Second Colon Cleansing’ e-book which discloses a ‘stunningly simple secret’ for cleansing your colon by Shanthi Immanuel. Her e-book has loads and loads of information about how to eradicate or ease the symptoms of constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Bowel Cancer which can and often makes life so hard. Don Hutson of Ohio actually sent a testimonial only 3 days after receiving the e-book! Over 1 billion people have used the method. What can you say! These are some recommendations!
Theresa Cheung has written one specifically about the Lemon Juice Diet which is very popular and comprehensive. She offers an effective and safe way, using lemon juice, to detoxify, reduce cholesterol, lower blood sugar and increase your levels of immunity and brain function. (Something we all definitely need to keep up with modern society). Of course, I have only mentioned a few of the benefits she advocates so I recommend strongly that you have a look at her book, there is so much, much more. It is a wonderful source of information that you will use it time and time again.
So go on, do it! What have you to loose!!!! I know, lots and lots of ‘rubbish’ that is fermenting in your colon, in your body. A detox two or three times a year will change your life. ‘Stand the pain and live the gain’ I wish you well and know that you will begin a life of perfect health and happiness.
A note of warning: Please seek medical advice from your General Practitioner prior to starting any detoxing programme.
I just can’t resist giving you this beautiful and wonderful start to your detoxing day! I know that the connection to detoxing tenuous but ……. Remember, detoxing is only part of the process of bringing your mind and body back to health and well being. Gentle sounds, flowing sensations heal and rest the mind. So listen as many times as you can and enjoy. And girls! – What about the ‘eye candy’ Does your heart good too..!
I expect you have heard the word detoxification many times and probably have the idea that it usually involves eating less, even starving for a few days, drinking lots of water etc. Well it actually encompasses other methods. There are many ways of cleansing your body and some of them are discussed here. Detoxification has been the subject of lengthy discussions for many years and there is a long history of cultural fasting/detoxing as religious rituals and worship. However, today detoxing is more or less identified with modern health issues and natural health lifestyles. Even though you are ‘healthy’ this does not mean that you don’t need to detox. Obviously our body does this on a continual basis, our kidneys and liver (our filters) are constantly working cleaning out all the pollutants (smoke, caffeine, chemical-based products etc) in our body. Detoxing strengthen our organs back to optimal function. Basically, as mentioned before, this is mainly done through fasting, which rests the organs and stimulates the liver by pushing away the toxins from the body. Nourishing the body with healthy nutrients is also done to maintain optimum health. Although a lot of people want whole body detoxification, detoxing a particular organ only is also popular. These are usually the kidneys, the liver or colon. During kidney cleansing, herbal supplements and juices are used to dissolve and wash out kidney stones. Particular foods are consumed in liver cleansing which cause the gall bladder and liver to remove fatty deposits and toxins out of the body. Colon cleansing on the other hand, gently flushes the colon with water providing a pathway for the release of toxins. There are also other techniques used in whole body cleansing such as: Fasting – Water or juice fasting is applied for a period of time to lessen toxic loads in the body causing the body to heal itself and nourish inside out. Parasite cleaning – Right amount of pills or tinctures made out of bitter herbs are consumed to build an unreceptive environment for the parasites inside the body. Contrast Shower – The contrast among hot and cold water enhances circulation, helps in detoxifying thus having a stronger immune system. This also helps by bringing oxygen, nutrients and immune cells towards damaged and stressed tissue and flushes metabolic waste and other toxins. Other popluar methods include: Saunas, yoga, exercise, raw food dieting and dry skin brushing. These also enhance the body’s natural cleansing process. Other Detoxifying aids: There are a number of safe products that helps in the cleansing process such as cleansing supplement packages (with easy-to-follow instructions), detox foot patches, commercially prepared detox teas, Epsom salts, high-class multivitamins for daily intake and antioxidants like Q10 and E that can be found at health food stores. Before and after side effects: As the procedures differ, so do the benefits. During the detox, you’ll most likely feel the side effects that take place during the first few days such as headaches, feeling weak, sore muscles, cranky moods and unable to sleep soundly. There are also a number of positive side effects days after the cleansing process. You will feel energetic, mental clarity improved, skin is clearer, improved sleep, and have a positive attitude in life for a fresh start. Detoxification is safe and beneficial for our health. It is suggested that each one should at least have a short detoxification program yearly. However, children, nursing mothers, and patients with cancer, chronic degenerative illness and tuberculosis should consult their physician first for approval and supervision or find someone who is familiar with detox. If you decide to award your body with holiday, find a nutritional therapist who is familiar with detox. Here’s how: You can call your friends who are into health foods and alternative medicines, ask them for a person who they can refer. Another way is to search in the yellow pages under nutrition or by looking for ads in health publication in your locality. Get the name of someone you found whose name appears in more than one place and check for his profile, like from which school he/she attended the training and if it’s an accredited one. Also ask how long he’s been in practice. A further thought: I have also noticed in some of the magazines I read that there are an increasing number of hotels that are offering ‘green’ services. Amongst their services ‘detoxing’ is included. There is also a number specifically based around everything ‘detox’ and they appear to becoming very popular. So have a holiday with a difference and look for these particular hotels and please come back and drop a comment on the blog. I think we would all be very interested in what you have to say.
