One certainly feels “dirty” after working in the flower beds planting their spring flowers and tending to the rose bushes; all the while enjoying the beauty and fragrance. However, once we are done, a good shower, shampoo, and scrub is needed to remove the dust and debris. This isn’t much different from what the inside of one’s body needs as well.
Often I’m asked, “Where do these toxins you speak of come from?” From the air we breathe, anything that touches our skin and on foods we eat. It could be anywhere and everywhere. One evening I was driving home from a meditation group when I remembered that I needed to get a couple of cans of cat food, as the cabinet was bare. I knew I wouldn’t be sleeping if I didn’t show up with food for my two fluffy felines.
While I didn’t normally shop at this particular grocery, it was on my way home and it had later hours than most stores. As I parked my car in the lot, an exterminator truck pulled in and began unloading the equipment. My eyebrows went up and I scurried into the store, picked up two cans and made my way to the check out line just as the service man began his job. I took a big gulp of air into my lungs, grabbed my purchase and hurried out of the store without breathing.
One of my challenges has been allergies and sensitivities. I knew if I was exposed to this I would have challenges and need to do a big cleansing detoxification. So I hurried out before there would be much exposure. There are “studies” that show the pesticides are “safe” however they attack the nervous system of bugs, so who’s to say it doesn’t also affect us. I would rather avoid any exposure and be safe, instead of sorry. Fortunately, I didn’t have any bad reactions.
I just wondered, if I had arrived at this store 30 minutes later, I wouldn’t have known that I was walking into an area that could compromise my health.
The interesting thing about one’s body is the ability to store toxins as a safe guard against damage. There are both water soluble ones and fat soluble ones. We often store the fat soluble ones in fat. So when one cleanses, the fat and cellulite reduces in quantity. Getting fat to release isn’t as easy as water soluble toxins, which can be released by sweating.
Two of the easiest and most successful means of getting to the fat soluble toxins are using far infrared saunas and colon cleansing to address the bile. Let’s look at the far infrared sauna therapy first. This invisible band of electromagnetic light spectrum warms objects without first warming the air between the source and the object. The tissues of ones body selectively absorb these rays as the water in the cell reacts in a process called “resonant absorption.” The frequency of the far infrared matches the frequency of the water in the cell causing toxins to be dropped off into the blood stream. Then it is excreted in sweat, feces and urine.
The toxins excreted in the feces can be bound in bile which is a digestive component involved in fat and oil digestion, hence the binding of fat soluble toxins. When one cleanse the colon and dumps old bile, the toxins in the bile is also eliminated. However, one must be nutrient rich in minerals since it takes minerals to make new bile salts. One’s body recycles bile so that it is stored in the gall bladder and reused as needed during digestion.
A method of removing the toxins from the bile while not needing to eliminate the bile is reflorastation. This is the rectal introduction of probiotics in quantity, quality and variety to provide many varieties of lactobacillus and bifida bacterium to carry the toxins away in the feces without needing to remove the bile. We might consider this planting "flowers" in ones large intestine to bring health and beauty to it's soil. One must admit that our bodies are amazing in their ability to protect and care for us. Our job is to give it the opportunity and methods to do its job easily and effectively.
