Biological detoxification of your body can be accomplished in many different ways.. Healthy people with no issues have a much easier time doing this than people with chronic health concerns. The results can vary.You can experience fantastic results or you can be marginal. It depends on what you decide to do and how it affects you. This is one of those mind body spirit things. Most people are healthier after a few months. Everyone is different. It is kind of like getting a facelift. You can be fabulous when its over or not so much.
The first thing to know before you embark on this path is that it is a journey. Please do not do this alone. Do not go to the health food store, look at a few brochures, buy the named detox supplements and head home to detox on your own. You will be in for a very unpleasant surprise. It includes a stomach ache, a headache and diarrhea. First, find out what a detox will actually do for you.
The professionals on the forefront are chiropractors, alternative medicine doctors, nurses, massage therapists and professional trainers. Interview them carefully before deciding on a professional. What they should do is provide complete instructions, guidance and advice for the entire procedure. Expect them to be available to you for months if needed. The prices they charge for this service vary a great deal so shop around. Get testimonials.
Have your blood chemistry tested before starting a plan to see what toxins are affecting what organ systems. Be informed about what toxins are present and also learn about heavy metals. Our air, food and medicines are laced with heavy metals. Getting blood tests for toxins can cost thousands of dollars. I wanted to find someone locally but the prices were over the moon. Costs are more than the professional charges because you must purchase a variety of supplements.
My chiropractor’s explanation of the detoxification process helped me to understand that doing a supervised program is essential. His testing costs were reasonable and he was online. He used supplements from a certified company and everything was pharmacy grade.That can make an enormous difference.
I started the program knowing that it could affect me negatively. I felt achey and tired the first week. I knew to exercise to feel better faster. I took a walk every morning. Everyone is different but because I was informed, I knew what to expect. I knew how to adjust it to alleviate symptoms so that I could function. Each week of detoxifying will bring you different symptoms to manage. Hang in there and keep your professional informed. You should notice new strength and deeper sleep.
So how do you know your detoxification worked? You have to retest. You must be willing to change your protocol as you progress. No professional will be able to help you do that without follow up testing. Detoxification can take months depending on the individual.
Drink plenty of water. It needs to be at least two quarts. Make sure it is filtered water. What will you eat? Most of the professionals will have easy to follow diets. Invest in a skin brush from a health food store. Brush your skin as this is one of the main areas toxins are released. Instructions come with the brush. Taking an epsom salt bath is also helpful. Some people reported some swelling in different parts of the body as toxins are released. Resting on an incline board was also suggested to relieve swelling.
Would I go through this process again? Yes. It is an education about your physiology. It will give you the best way to relieve symptoms you may have had for a long time. One great side effect is that obese people will lose weight. As they progress through detoxification, diet management is an important facet. You will know what works.
