Everyone is created to heal. However, there are things that can block our healing and these factors need to be handled first before any treatment can be effective. The most common reasons for blocked healing are food sensitivities/allergies. Other common reasons are heavy metal toxicities, chemical toxicities, or various organisms challenging our immune systems such as yeasts, fungi, viruses, bacteria or parasites.
Our bodies are meant to handle all of these things, by the way, but with our lifestyles and toxic environments, our bodies often need help to get back into balance. Part of getting the body back into balance is strengthening the elimination channels. These are the pathways by which our bodies eliminate waste and other toxins, including the bowels, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Let’s go over some points on keeping these elimination channels functioning well.
Bowels: Everyone knows that constipation is not good; however, very few people know when they are constipated if it isn’t obvious. Every time we eat, our colon is stimulated to eliminate waste; therefore, we should have a bowel movement after each meal. Yes, that is correct. It is not an extreme view; that is what’s normal. We have gone so far away from normal that we no longer recognize or accept normal. I think that is a shame…. so do our bodies think it is a shame, evidenced by rising diseases and health disorders.
Lymph: The lymphatic system is almost like another circulatory system and it is the means to remove waste from our cells. You know of lymph nodes; that is part of the lymph system. One of the very best ways to stimulate lymph is a few minutes every day on a mini-trampoline. You don’t have to jump hard, as even the slightest spring or stepping on a trampoline will stimulate the lymphatic circulation.
Skin: We are meant to sweat. Don’t stop sweating with antiperspirants; that will hold toxins in. Don’t wear synthetic clothing if at all possible; wearing natural fibers routinely allows our skin to breathe. Dry Skin Brushing with natural Tampico fibers helps the skin eliminate toxins properly.
All of the above elimination channels and the lungs have one thing in common that they need to properly eliminate toxins: the need for water. The rule of thumb is to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water per day. (If you weigh 200 pounds, you should drink 100 ounces of water per day; a gallon is 128 ounces.)
