Intentional forms of detoxification, one’s that ramp up the body’s ability to eliminate waste are very common. The two most basic forms of intentional detoxification are: Colon cleansing, and basic liver cleasning.
In colon cleansing, a person may be using a few different methods such as colon cleasning herbs, coffee enemas or colonics. Liver cleanses are usually done through similar means, also by including olive oil, lemon juice and other similar food stuff.
While colon and simple liver detoxing can be very helpful, there are deeper, more powerful strategies for detoxing. These involve actually increasing the mobilization of toxic metals, chemicals and xenobiotics. Obviously, with the incidence of high degrees of toxicity in today’s environment, this subject is becoming increasingly more pertinent.
Advanced Detoxification Strategies
The following is a list of some excellent, advanced detoxification strategies, which have been proven to work exceptinally well.
- Coffee enemas
- Sauna therapy
- Chelation therapy
- Increasing Glutathione
- Temporary dosing with high amounts of Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C and Garlic
- Combiing protocols with highly concentrated froms of Chlorella
In order for these processes to work safely and most effectively, it is of critical importance to maintain high levels of health, eat extremely well and have normal, healthy bowel function. These basic pre-requisites will ensure that the advanced therapies won’t cause harm to the body.
Coffee enemas work incredibly well in a number of different ways. They are found in the 19th century medical literature. Coffee enemas are required by some of the top alternative cancer treatments including the Gerson method and the Dr.’s Kelley and Gonzalez protocols. Coffee enemas can detoxify the intestines, but they are primariy used for liver detoxification. As coffee is retained in the body for 15 minutes, a large amount of the coffee taken through the rectum travels to the liver through the hepatic portal. The coffee then stimulates the liver’s production of glutathione, by as much as 700%! The result is ramped up filtration of the blood of chemicals, toxins, and toxic metals. The coffee enema will also increase bile flow and carry out the conjugated xenobiotics through the feces.
In certain cancer protocols, coffee enemas are taken daily, along with high doses of certain pancreatic enzymes. Coffee enemas are generally considered to be safe, and very powerful. I have seen clients who after having used coffee enemas daily, had doubled their elimination of toxic metals, as monitored through hair tissue mineral analysis.
Here is the best site for purchasing coffee enema product.
Sauna therapy is excellent for increasing circulation, as well as detoxifying the largest organ of the body, the skin. Sweating is a major pathway of detoxification and sauna therapy can be an outstanding way to both detoxify the lymphatic tissue as well as to relax the body and mind.
The sweat contains several minerals and metals including zinc, copper, lead, iron and nickel. the lymphatic tissue is often congested with multiple chemicals and heavy metals, and perspiration assists the detoxification of lymph tissue.
Infrared saunas have gotten a lot of attention over recent years, and some preliminary studies may show they are capable of detoxifying metals better than conventional saunas.
An excellent, simple near infrared sauna can be purchased here. This site also contains instructions on how to make a sauna.
EDTA and DMPS chelation is the administration of a sulphur compound which chelates and binds to metals and minerals. This therapy has also been shown to be effective for the reduction and elimination of arterial plaque.
Chelation therapy is probably best done in a suppository form, although intravenous forms may be better in certain instances. The FDA has come down hard on chelation therapy, probably because it eliminates the need for bypass surgery and certain drugs.
if you opt to do this strategy, it is very important to maintain a very high level of nutrition, as many nutrient minerals can be eliminated as well.
- Glutathione is the body’s “master” antioxidant. It is the most concentrated intracellular antioxidant in the body
- Glutathione Is critically involved in phase 2 Liver Detoxification
- Glutathione is vitally important for the detoxification of heavy metals such as mercury and lead, chemicals and carcinogens
- Glutathione levels decrease when we are over-burdened with toxicity
- 6% of the body’s total ATP (biological energy) is used to create and sustain Glutathione levels
- Raising Glutathione is one of the most important factors for preventing the onset of disease
- Glutathione modulates immune function
- Glutathione slows the aging process
- Glutathione levels decrease as we age
- Over 76,000 medical articles have been written about Glutathione.
- Patients with Cancer, AIDS, Diabetes, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s tend to have very low Glutathione levels
A new and amazingly effective product has been proven in clincial studies to raise intracellular levels of glutathione by nearly 300%. Nutritionally oriented healthcare providers have reported huge mobilization of toxic metals with this product. if you are interested more in this product go here.
Vitamin C, Lipoic Acid & Garlic
A great way to keep antioxidants circulating is by taking high, short term doses of alpha lipoic acid with vitamin c and garlic. Lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant which the body produces, and taking high amounts of it, make its scavenging capabilities even more potent. Garlic contains sulphur which is a natural liver detoxificant.
One of the best forms of lipoic acid I have found is formulated by Premier Research Labs. This form is called DHLA, and its a special form of lipoic acid with powerful free radical scavenging capabilities.
Both chlorella and cilantro have been shown to pull heavy metals like mercury from the body. Most store bought brands may be capable of doing this to a lesser extent, but there are products available online that are far more potent.
Like with all other metal detoxification strategies, micronized chlorella therapy should be done very cautiously. i have worked with highly toxic patients, where only 1 or 2 drops of certain products caused detoxification reactions. The most potent form of chlorella can be found here,
A healing reaction is any number of symptoms that results from detoxification. Commone symptoms include: headahces, joint pain, numbness or tingling of arms or legs, chronic fatgue.
The best things to do in such cases is to drink distilled water, get rest and to do sauna therapy if tolerant. Additional antioxidant support may be necessary, in order to help facilitate detoxification from the blood.
Coffee enemas and liver detoxification can also be powerful in these instances, as they assist the liver’s filtration and detoxification of xenobiotics.
