Detoxify thru Cleansing, Fasting and
Copyright 2009 Heaven Ministries -- Angie Lewis
When we detoxify our body through cleansing,
fasting, green drinks, juicing and herbs we are ultimately getting rid
of toxic agents and impurities in our body that cause sickness and
disease. Toxins drain through the channels of the lymphatic system and
into the kidneys, liver, and the colon where they finally escape the
When the lymphatic system becomes blocked lymph
nodes become swollen and toxins canít escape.
Eventually if we allow toxins to build up in our body we will
become sick and diseased. The proper workings of the lymphatic system
are an extremely important part of overall health.
The Basic Job of the Lymphatic System
The lymphatic system works closely with the
circulatory system to provide nutrients and hormones to the cells.
Healthy cellsómeans healthy body. The lymphatic system works as a
drainage system to the whole body, releasing toxins and impurities. A
properly working lymphatic system is your best defense against
infections and disease. It must be kept free of pollution and blockage
for the body to function optimally.
The lymphatic system destroys pathogens and filters
waste into the bowels and kidneys, which ultimately aids in the
circulatory system working properly. If you often get swollen lymph
glands it means you are overloaded with toxins and the lymphatic system
is blocked. This also means that your circulatory system is not getting
the amounts of nutrients it needs to be healthy. This leads to weak
vessels and arteries that run through your body.
Diet And The Lymphatic System
Diet plays a huge role in how healthy your
lymphatic system is. Everyone has some amount of toxins within their
body, but some people have considerable more because they donít take
the necessary steps to stay healthy. Even if a person ate a natural,
whole foods diet, exercised, and stayed in great shape they still should
detoxify the system periodically just because of environmental hazards
and chemicals leaching into the system on a daily basis.
Some health advocates opt for a
"once a month", 24-hour
maintenance fast, to give the digestive system a rest. Lymphatic massage
is also a great way to get the drainage system moving and releasing
If you think your drainage system might be clogged
that means the nutrients from the foods you are eating are not getting
absorbed properly into your bloodstream to feed your body. There are too
many toxins blocking the way for the nutrients to enter. This is why
some people who do everything right to stay healthy seem to feel tired
and sluggish. The body needs adequate amounts of nutrients to sustain
it. But if the body is clogged and not releasing toxins you will feel
