When we talk about toxins in the body, most people first identify chemicals and contaminants that have been taught to be harmful. These can include things like cigarette smoke, pollution, and other environmental toxins. But substances that can create toxic buildup inside the body go far beyond these dangerous pollutants.
Did you know that even drinking water can deposit toxins in your body? As our health experts explained in one of our Hallelujah Diet video blogs, processed foods, undigested fats, and impure water can create an accumulation of toxins in the body over several years. This internal contamination can be detrimental to your body’s lymphatic system, blood, and nervous system. Reducing the accumulation of toxins in the lungs, heart and vascular system and removing waste is the equivalent of washing your face or combing your hair every day. Taking care of what is inside is as important as practicing the hygiene of what is outside.
To keep your health under control and your body systems working properly, make it a habit to eliminate toxins regularly. Please note the following:
While it is important to detoxify the body of harmful wastes, increasing nutritional intake is equally crucial. This is best achieved by following a mostly raw, plant-based diet, such as the Hallelujah diet. Rich in healthy raw vegetables and some fruits, supplements and vitamins, a diet based on Genesis 1:29 can help you consume and retain vital nutrients to energize, nourish, strengthen and heal.
“Refilling the body with nutrients is a key part of eliminating toxins.”
Most people, when they first start this diet, will be low in folate, potassium, magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin K, chromium and iodine. Consuming raw plants from the earth is the most effective way to recover these nutrients. Eliminating poison is most effective when the body receives all the vital minerals and vitamins it needs.
According to Mind Body Green, regulating your digestive system is one of the most effective ways to promote your body’s detoxification process. In addition, healthy, regular bowel movements, two to three times a day, are important for the overall health of your body. If you have trouble managing it, supplemental magnesium has been shown to improve regulation. In fact, Hallelujah Diet has a whole selection of products and digestive supplements that may be beneficial to you.
Remember the last time you sweated excessively after a workout or physical activity? If so, this is great because it means that at the same time you are removing the body of toxins through the skin. Not only did you do your usual exercise, but you also detoxified your body. Sweating is one of the best ways to eliminate the toxic buildup of contaminants in the body, the Global Healing Center reported.
Best of all, exercising is something you may already be doing anyway, so it’s a plus for everyone.
Focus on fiber
As Natural Health 365 explained, dietary fiber is the number one tool used by the body to eliminate toxins and heavy metals effectively and naturally. Proper detoxification is done with healthy amounts of fiber, which most people on the standard American diet fail to acquire. Natural options to increase fiber intake include beans, ground flax seeds and lentils.
At Hallelujah Diet, we offer a number of different fiber cleansers, all created with 28 intentional herbs that eliminate toxins and cleanse the colon. Through this process, optimal intestinal function is restored. Along with the Hallelujah Diet, a fiber cleanser can remove harmful toxins from the body while replenishing essential nutrients to help you feel better.
