Join me in this video to discover which natural herbs and supplements can help your body detox harmful estrogens, toxins from dead bacteria and support your liver.

Big Question: Do I need to do a "cleanse"? 

Short Answer: You do want to support your body's natural elimination pathways, including your liver function, while you heal your gut but you may not need to do anything too radical like fasting or juicing unless you really want to try it! 

In the video, I go over these 5 natural supplements for liver detox support: NAC, Glutathione, Turmeric, Dandelion and Milk Thistle.

Plus, I talk about what you can do to support elimination naturally such as hydrotherapy, infrared sauna and dry brushing. These things work! 

 

Ok, so a bit about detox first ...

Chronic toxic exposure can lead to insomnia, digestive issues, fatigue, skin disorders, food allergies, weight gain and joint pain.

Detoxing means either clearing toxins from your body or neutralizing and transforming them to be eliminated. 

 

Due to the number of toxins and chemicals in our food, water, air and through metabolism itself, these toxins build up over time.

External toxins are from your environment: alcohol, pesticides, tobacco, heavy metals and medications.

Internal toxins are where the body, through its normal metabolism, forms by-products which are toxic if not neutralized or excreted.

 

 5 Signs You Need To Detox Better: 

1. YOU'RE ALWAYS TIRED

2. YOUR MEMORY IS FOGGY

3. YOU'RE CONSTIPATED

4. YOU'RE SENSITIVE TO FUMES, DETERGENTS, OR COSMETICS

5. YOU HAVE AN AUTOIMMUNE CONDITION (THYROID, RA, IBD, PSORIASIS)

These are 5 clues that your liver and digestive system need support with elimination.

So, how does your body actually detox every day?

5 Organs of Elimination:

  1. Skin: sweating promotes removal of soluble toxins through the pores
  2. Intestines: fat-soluble toxins leave the liver and are excreted 
  3. Kidneys: water-soluble toxins leave the liver and are excreted in urine
  4. Lymphatics: removes wastes from tissues and is responsible for immunity to infections
  5. Liver breaks down, neutralizes, detoxifies, and removes chemicals, poisons, body wastes, bacteria and undigested food from your body. A poorly functioning liver can lead to toxic overload and contribute to chronic disease. The liver uses a 2-step detoxification process to neutralize & remove toxins from your body:
    • Phase I reduces fat, glucose, carbohydrates, proteins and toxins
    • Phase II is where they are reduced to water-soluble products. Then they are able to leave the body through bowel movements or urination.

If gut inflammation is causing more toxic burden (which it probably is), start by grabbing my step-by-step guide to food sensitivities here: The Ultimate Elimination Diet Starter Kit.
