Detoxify thru Cleansing, Fasting and Juicing
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 body.

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 toxins.

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 tired.
