Drainage pathways are key to detoxing efficiently. We are constantly being bombarded with toxins on a daily basis. The air that we breathe is becoming increasingly polluted. But it's not just the quality of our air that's responsible for adding toxins to our body.
Take a look at these primary sources of toxins:
Mercury (from seafood and amalgam fillings)
Mold and it's mycotoxins
Fluoride (tap water, toothpaste, mouthwash)
Pesticides (fruit and vegetables)
Lead (paints, tap water)
Aluminium (antiperspirants, foil, cookware)
BPA (plastic use)
EMFs from electronics
Cookware (teflon, aluminium)
Skincare/make up.... and so much more!
There is only so much our bodies can do to tackle all this until the toxin burden becomes overwhelming, and that's when our health starts to decline as we feel the symptoms of the overload.
So what can we do about it? We need to support our body's detox systems - this includes the bowel, liver, bile, gall bladder kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. When these drainage pathways become clogged and sluggish, there are ways we can support and improve their function.
What to do
Regular bowel movements, aiming for at least twice a day.
Sweating sessions - through exercise or infrared saunas, immediately followed by cool showers.
Increase bile flow, using supplements and/or diet changes, such as consuming bitters and adding bile salts.
Dry brushing and rebounding for lymphatic drainage.
Castor oil packs on the liver.
Supplements to support drainage.
Supporting and improving the drainage pathways will move more toxins out naturally, and best prepares your body before beginning any kind of detox. The last thing you should do is start a detox protocol before your body is ready to eliminate safely.
