Remember the old saying, “You are what you eat?”
There’s certainly truth in it.
More accurately however..
You are what you…
Digest (break down)
Absorb (take into the bloodstream)
Take In (take into the cells)
The problem is that not all the food you eat is properly used. Even assuming you eat the organic, grass fed and highest quality food available, you still won’t have optimal health unless your digestive system is functioning at its peak.
Effectively eliminating the waste, toxins, and maybe even parasites that are in your body is essential to good health.
So what do you do?
Remove the Waste and Junk
Your body needs to properly digest nutrients and eliminate waste. The more efficiently your body digest and eliminates, the healthier you will be. In other words, if you aren’t “pooping” at least 1-2 times per day….your body isn’t doing its job and you are walking around with excess waste in your stomach.
The first sign of your body not digesting
The result of not digesting over months/years
If you aren’t “going” at least once daily, it’s past time for some…..internal cleansing of your organs!
Maybe this seems too close to home for some…but humor me for a minute….
Imagine your kitchen as if it has never been cleaned in the past 20 years.
(Maybe this is too close to the truth for some.)
Dishes piled to the ceiling, molding food on the counters, grease covering the stove, your cats filled the litter box in the corner years ago, the kids have tracked mud in from outside…
Now comes the REALLY scary part… Imagine fixing dinner tonight for your family in that very same kitchen.
Dirty pots and pans, used plates, glasses, and silverware… do you think that some of the contamination from the kitchen would be spread to the food and to your family?
The truth is the intestines are the “kitchen” of your body.
Every tissue in your body is fed by the bloodstream, which is supplied by the intestines. When your intestines are dirty, the blood is dirty, and so are your organs and tissues. It’s the intestines that must be cleansed first before any effective enhancement in your health can take place.
You Can Feel it in Your Gut…Are You Full of It?
Waste that doesn’t get eliminated, builds up on the intestinal walls clogging the absorption of vital nutrients, and creating a breeding ground for pathogenic bacteria, fungi, viruses, and even parasites. These pathogens excrete toxins, acids, and gases, which cause inflammation to the intestinal walls. The small, inflamed capillaries, that line the colon wall, begin to absorb the toxic byproducts of your own waste—right back into your own bloodstream—which poisons all the organs in your body.
This blocks your intestines from fully absorbing nutrients from your food and supplements, it also lowers your overall energy, health, and vitality while setting the stage for disease….think cancer.
What Should You Do?
Detoxing and internal cleansing is one of the most important steps—and usually the most overlooked—when attempting to lose weight, shape the body, flatten the waistline, improve the immune, digestive, and elimination systems, and achieve optimum health.
There are several ways you can cleanse internally..
- eat more fiber regularly
- drink at least 2 quarts of water
- dry brush your skin lightly to remove toxins
- try a master cleanse
- cleansing tea
- add more green veggies to your diet
- if you don’t like veggies, you can still get your greens here
This may have been a little “gross”, but it’s a serious matter that deserves your immediate attention…..your body and your livelihood depends on it.
I’d highly recommend that everyone detox at least once a year and cleanse at least twice a month. I wouldn’t recommend you start another weight loss program or take anymore supplements until you detox and internally cleanse your intestines and other digestive organs so your body will be ready to absorb the nutrients and vitamins that you will be taking and then you’ll finally see the weight loss results you desire.
