Detoxification is a process that occurs within our bodies on a natural and continuous basis. Detoxifying is the process of releasing accumulated toxins and waste products that build up throughout our system. From birth, we are bombarded by toxins, externally from environmental sources and internally, our organs give off waste products that accumulate in our body. Imbalanced emotions also play a part in polluting our system with excess chemicals such as free radicals, homocysteine and cortisol.

Detoxifying is, in many ways, an easy process. Our body does much of the detoxification process through urination, defecation and perspiration. As our bodies age and our immune systems weaken from illness, poor diet and/or addictive substances, we sometimes need to give our system an extra helping hand. That is why conscious detoxing is a great way back to optimum health.

For some, counting on a few cups of coffee, having a cigarette, drinking excessive alcohol or doing recreational drugs has become a familiar habit. Between all the medications, refined foods, additives, alcohol, pesticides and other chemicals we are exposed to in the environment, the ability of our systems to adapt and detoxify can become challenged.

Symptoms such as frequent or reoccurring colds, feeling heavy, sluggish or tired, poor skin, acne or other related skin problems, allergies, a thick, coated tongue, bad breath, headache, and feelings of gas and being bloated after meals may indicate problems in the body's functionality and it's ability to process, digest and excrete properly. These vague symptoms that are often overlooked tend to be the results of a congested and sluggish body system.

Exposure or toxicity to food additives, solvents, pesticides, herbicides and other toxic chemicals can cause a number of psychological and neurological symptoms. Toxins produced by bacteria in the gut can be absorbed, causing significant disruption of body functions. Toxins that the body are unable to eliminate build up in the tissues, typically in our fat stores.

One of the best ways to start your detoxification is with the body's biggest organ, the SKIN. A detox diet strengthens the organs involved in detoxification and releases stored toxins, expelling them through the organs of elimination: the skin, as well as the intestines, liver, lungs, kidneys, and lymphatic system.

5. Nutritional and herbal supplements to protect and enhance liver function, the kidneys ability to process and the digestive system's regularity,(discussed below).

6. Improving our mental/emotional process by stopping the mental chatter, approving and accepting ourselves and loosing the emotional baggage that drags us down.

7. Taking a spiritual approach by looking beyond the little things that get in the way and accepting and trusting the "Universal Power" or energy to guide you. Take a look at the big picture!

8. Decluttering the toxic waste around you including the clutter in your home/office, the friends or loved ones that poison your thoughts and actions and the environment that is making you sick.

9. Knowing that YOU are in control of your life.

10. That you have the power to do something about that will make a change.


Managing Your Detox

Top 10 Tips for Detoxing

1. Eating a diet that focuses on fresh vegetables and fruits.

2. Eat whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.

3. Adopt a healthy lifestyle including regular exercise.

4. Avoiding drugs and excessive alcohol.

5. Taking a high potency multiple vitamin and mineral supplement.

6. Take nutritional/herbal supplements to protect and enhance organ functions.

7. Fasting is one of the quickest ways to increase elimination of waste and enhance the healing process of the body.

8. Go on a three day fast, four times per year (fasting at the change of the seasons is a good rule to remember).

9. Take care of your skin and know your skin type.

10. Consider a self empowering affirmation to clear your mind.

In general, it is usually recommended that you begin with the intestines (see detoxing the organs in Chinese Medicine). The reason for this is if you focus on the liver first, the stored toxic substances that are released from the body tissues may become reabsorbed if the bowels are not moving adequately enough to expel them and can monitor your progress throughout the program.

The most easiest, inexpensive and effective methods of detoxification are fasting and specific dietary regimens. Keep in mind that the goal is to achieve a healthier way of eating, not weight loss, or to rid the body of all bacteria. In fact, "the good bacteria," known as probiotics, is necessary in order to remain in good health.


Herbal Remedies

Consider herbs such as Alfalfa, Basil, Burdock, Dandelion, Garlic, Ginger, Gotu Kola, Hawthorne Berry, Milk Thistle, Red Clover and Yellow Dock, which are among the best for detoxing and cleansing the system.

Alfalfa alkalizes and detoxs the body. Can act as a diuretic, balances hormones, eases inflammation, may lower cholesterol. Must be used in fresh raw form to provide vitamins. Contains an antifungal agent. Its high protein and vitamin content make it a good nutritional source. Medicinal uses of alfalfa include treatment of stomach upset, arthritis, bladder and kidney problems, boils, and irregular menstruation.

Cilantro is the great metal detoxer! Leaves of the coriander plant (cilantro) can accelerate the excretion of mercury, lead, and aluminum from the body. Cilantro is considered the "poor man's chelation treatment." Simply add cilantro to your diet daily, for two or three weeks. Consider adding a handful of fresh cilantro to a salad, mix a couple of teaspoons of cilantro pesto with whole wheat pasta or have it with your favorite fish or soups.

Basil has been shown to kill bacteria on the skin surface. Apply this tincture directly to the skin surface on a compress. This works to kill the bacteria that forms as the detox process happens. It is also possible to steep two to three teaspoons of dried basil in a cup of boiling water. Allow the herb to steep 5-10 minutes or more in order to extract the healing oils from the plant. Then soak a washcloth or compress in the tea and apply to the areas where pimples, acne or skin eruptions are most present.

Dried root preparations in a capsule or tablet can be used at 1?2 grams three times per day.

Dandelion is a leading remedy for detoxing the liver. It stimulates the flow of bile, a fluid that aids fat digestion, which is why it's used for liver and gallbladder disorders. Dandelion has scientifically documented potent diuretic properties. It relieves constipation and eases bloating and swelling. Dandelion should be used for 4 to 6 weeks at a time. For it's liver benefits, dandelion is helpful for detoxing.

Garlic controlling free radicals, countering the tendency of the blood to clot, and possibly reducing blood pressure and cholesterol levels, garlic has many benefits. Preliminary evidence suggests that regular use of garlic may help prevent cancer. Garlic may be an effective antibiotic when it contacts the tissue directly, but there is no evidence that it works like a standard antibiotic, spreading throughout the body and killing organisms everywhere. Garlic has known antifungal properties,and there is preliminary evidence suggesting that "Ajoene", a compound derived from garlic, might help treat athlete's foot. Garlic has also been proposed as a treatment for asthma, candida, colds, diabetes, and vaginal infections.

Ginger is used for the prevention and treatment of various forms of nausea. These include motion sickness, the nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (morning sickness), and post-surgical nausea. Ginger has been suggested as a treatment for numerous other conditions, including atherosclerosis, migraine headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, high cholesterol, burns, ulcers, depression, impotence, and liver toxicity.

The feet are a "detox portal", and that keeping your body clear of toxins may help you live a longer, stronger and healthier life.

Hydrotherapy

The mysterious and amazing healing power of water has been utilized for centuries. Water cleanses, refreshes and restores all life. We are always drawn to water. Be it a soothing fountain or majestic waterfall. Water is a carrier. It flows. It moves along the line of least resistance to find its way to the ocean where comes and goes in the ebb and flow of tides and waves. The appeal is inexplicable! We crave water, maybe because our bodies are made up of a large percent of it. Maybe beacuse we instinctively know how it can heal us.

Hydrotherapy is the use of water in any form, in the treatment of dis-ease. Hydrotherapy was used by the ancient Greek physicians. The use of baths for such purposes as well as for religious purification, personal cleanliness, and private or social relaxation dates from at least the time of ancient Greece. A German, Vincenz Priessnitz, popularized the use of spas in Germany and elsewhere in Europe, where they are still popular today.

Hydrotherapy has a number of uses. Warm water will relax spasm; thus, hydrotherapy has been useful in treating such conditions as muscular strains and sprains, muscular fatigue, and backache. Heat is often used in conjunction with massage or other manipulative or stimulative treatments, such as the whirlpool bath. Sitz baths (sitting in hot water) are effective in the treatment of many disorders. Water is also useful in physical therapy because patients who exercise in a buoyant medium can move weak parts of their bodies without contending with the strong force of gravity.

The neutral bath has a balancing effect on anxious or irritable people. Instructions for a neutral bath: Fill your bathtub with water slightly cooler than body temperature, around 94? to 97?F (You can check the temperature of the water with a regular thermometer.)

As the tub fills with water add 2 spoons of Angel's Mist Deep Soak Sea Salts to the bath water for a soothing, muscle relaxing soak. Submerging as much of your body as possible, stay in the bath for at least 20 minutes, adding water as needed to maintain the temperature of the bath.

Consider a relaxing bath with the cleansing calming effects of Angel's Mist Lavender Fields Soap is a relaxing blend of Lavender, Chamomile, Clary Sage essential oil makes this soap wonderful for creating a soothing and calm complement to your bath.

Consider cleansing the nasal passages with a Neti Pot. This Ayurvedic solution has been used for centuries to keep the nasal passages clear of mucus and congestion.

Steam baths and dry saunas have been used as healing therapeutics for centuries. Perspiration is one of the best ways to detox our system. Sweating helps rid the body of wastes products, regulates body temperature, and invigorates our largest organ, the skin. Steam increases white blood cells which protects and strengthens our immune system. Medical studies show that frequent steam baths help reduce stress and keeps your circulatory system running smoothly. Warning: If you are pregnant, have diabetes or have heart disease, consult a doctor before taking a sauna or steam bath.

Processed food can rob your food of nutrients and vitamins that your body needs to fight off stress and promote good health. Try to buy whole foods, unprocessed foods and try and stay away from "instant" foods, preservatives, artificial flavors, saturated fat and MSG.

Reduce Sugar Intake:

Too much sugar can rob our body of essential nutrients. Yet don't be so fast as to replace the sugar with Stevia the natural sweetener from the Stevia plant. Artificial sweetener can also cause anxiety as well as other health concerns.

Reduce Alcohol Intake:

In small amounts, alcohol can be good for your heart but too much alcohol is not a good thing for your body and too large of an intake increases your body's need for extra vitamins. The body has a harder time using oxygen. As a result, you can become more sensitive to stress - which in turn can cause anxiety reactions. It can also cause depression.

Homeopathy

This medical system uses infinitesimal doses of natural substances to stimulate a person's immune system and body's natural defenses. Homeopathic remedies are named for the plant or animal ingredients they are made from. Homeopathy not only offers relief from temporary disorders but, can provide long term healing of a person due to its individual and "wholistic" approach. This often leads to a complete recovery from the dis-ease, as well as, providing an improved understanding of the patient's situation. This type of healing makes it easier and possible to avoid recurrence or relapses in the future and homeopathy stimulates the body's natural defense system by reestablishing normal immune system and cell functioning.

Detox and Fasting Suggestions

Water and Juice Fast:
Most experts recommend beginners to do one or the other over every weekend for a few months. A water only fast starting Friday evening and ending Sunday morning (or just all day Saturday, as an alternative) should be broken with a day of raw foods (fruit/salad only, plus water), not with a heavy meal. Make sure that not less than four, and not more than eight, pints of water are consumed during the fast.

Water/Juice Recipe
In an 8 ounce glass of water
squeeze 1/2 - 1 full lemon in the water
Then drink. Add ons include:
- 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- dropper full of milk thistle tincture
- dropper full of dandelion tincture

Juice Therapy
During juice therapy, the eliminative and cleansing capacity of the organs of elimination, specifically lungs, liver, kidneys and the skin, is greatly increased and accumulated metabolic waste and toxins are quickly eliminated. It affords a physiological rest to the digestive and assimilative organs. After the juice fasting or juice therapy, the digestion of food and the utilization of nutrients is improved.

As juices are extracted from plants and fruits, they process definite medicinal properties. Specific juices are beneficial in specific conditions. Besides specific medicinal virtues, raw fruit and vegetable juices have an extraordinary revitalizing and rejuvenating effect on all the organs, glands and functions of the body.

Raw juices of fruits and vegetables are extremely rich in vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes and natural sugars. The juices extracted from raw fruits and vegetables require no digestion and almost all their vital nutrients are assimilated directly in the bloodstream. Raw juices are extremely rich in alkaline elements. This is highly beneficial in normalizing acid-alkaline balance in the blood and tissues as there is over-acidity in most conditions of ill-health. Organic minerals in raw juices especially calcium, potassium and silicon help in restoring biochemical and mineral balance in the tissues and cells, thereby preventing premature ageing of cells and disease.

Weekend Mono-diet:
This consists of a full weekend of relying on a single food such as grapes, apples, pears (best choice if you have a history of allergy problems), brown rice, millet, or even potatoes (boiled only).

Alkaline-Detoxification Diet:
Developed by Dr. Haas, this three to four-week plan helps to detoxify the body tissues of protein and acid wastes and can also help to reduce weight, increase vitality, and promote healing. This plan involves the elimination of acid-forming foods from your diet and eating only fruits and vegetables (mostly vegetables), plus fresh sprouts and millet. The diet also focuses on particular eating principles, including exceptional chewing (thirty to fifty times each mouthful), drinking quality water plus the steamed vegetable water, and eating all food prior to nightfall.

Vitamin C Therapy:
Exposure to various toxins, like lead or benzene, will deplete your vitamin C stores. Evidence also suggests that vitamin C deficiency hampers the body's own detoxification process. Take 1,000 mg three times a day.

Chelation Therapy:
A synthetic amino acid known as EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) is administered intravenously and binds to various toxic metals in the blood. The toxins are then flushed from the body through the kidneys. Used primarily to treat cases of lead poisoning, many doctors have found that EDTA can remove the calcium and plaque present in the walls of arteries in atheroscelerosis. This therapy has yet to have FDA approval as a treatment for heart disease.


Exercise

Aerobics is very important for increasing circulation and cleansing the skin by increasing the oxygen intake ridding the body of toxins. Be sure to shower immediately to cleanse the oils and toxins that come to the skin's surface. Sweat.

Excretion through sweating releases fat soluble toxins such as DDT, and heavy metals such as lead. Cleansing the pores of the skin and allowing for the rejuvenation process, are all the great benefits of detoxing through regular exercise.

Talk to your doctor. If you have never exercised, talk to your doctor or therapist for guidance and support. Jointly assess your issues and concerns about an exercise program and how it fits into your overall strategy.

Identify what you enjoy. Figure out what type of exercise or activities you're more likely and less likely to do, as well as where, when and how often. For instance, would you rather garden in the evenings, jog in the pre-dawn hours, go for a brief walk in the woods or play basketball with your children after school?

Set reasonable goals. Your mission doesn't have to be to walk for an hour five days a week. Even a 10-minute walk can help lift your mood, get you into a more positive environment and refocus your thoughts, even temporarily, away from negative or self-critical thinking patterns. Custom-tailor your plan to your own needs and abilities.

Break it down. It might be good to have an overall exercise strategy. But focusing on the perfect plan or an ideal rather than what's realistic for you can sabotage your efforts. Don't start with the ideal and work backward. Start with the realistic and work forward. Break your program down into smaller parts. If you can't fathom walking for 45 minutes, what is possible? Fifteen minutes? Five minutes? Start there, and build on that foundation.

For many people, just getting shoes on and getting out the door is the majority of the effort. That's the hardest part. Once we're moving, though, it's often easier to keep moving. So put your energy into the front end ? into just getting started.

Have short-term coping strategies. You may have a structured exercise program that calls for activity several times a week at the local gym. But plan for active ways to cope immediately and quickly with unexpected negative moods, depression, anxiety or other issues. For instance, even if it's your day off from exercise, taking a 10-minute walk may quickly help lift your mood if you're sad or anxious or find yourself focusing on negative thoughts. Try to respond to a negative mood with physical activity.

Don't think of exercise as a burden. If exercise is just another "should" in your life that you don't think you're living up to, you'll associate it with failure. Reframe the way you think about physical activity. Don't think of it as just another thing that you should be doing, but can't because of all of the demands in your life. Instead, think of it as something positive that you can do now to help you meet your goals, including feeling better physically and emotionally.

Address your barriers. Identify your individual barriers to launching a program. If you're self-conscious, for instance, you might not want to exercise in public. If anxiety or depression makes you feel like you're carrying a heavy weight around, the idea of moving on purpose, doing something active, can seem absurd. The barriers may feel overwhelming. But when you have depression, it's easy to overestimate difficulty. Instead, develop a strategy to overcome or get around those barriers. If you don't want to go to a crowded gym, perhaps you can go to a quiet park or use a home treadmill or bike. If you're put off by the thought of spending 30 minutes jogging, aim for five minutes of walking instead of just doing nothing. If five minutes seems daunting, try two minutes.

Prepare for setbacks and obstacles. Exercise isn't always easy or fun. And it's tempting to blame yourself for that. People with depression are especially likely to feel shame over perceived failures. Don't fall into that trap. Give yourself credit for every step in the right direction, no matter how small. Chances are, you're going to come to a time when it gets really hard. If you say that you're a failure, that you blew it, that you have to start all over, you're more likely to quit altogether. Recognize that change is hard and setbacks are part of the change process. By learning how to cope with setbacks, you'll learn skills that will help you stay active over the long term.


Traditional Chinese Medicine:

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the oldest, continually practiced, and professionally administered health care system in the world. It is a documented medical system spanning over 2,500 years based on comprehensive philosophies, rational theories, clinically tested and empirically verified by over 100 generations of highly educated practitioners. Chinese Medicine is a total system of internal medicine which is comprised of a diagnostic procedure based on signs, symptoms and treatment styles including acupuncture, herbal medicine, exercise, diet and meditation. It?s foundation is based on the principles of balance; the interdependent relationship of Yin and Yang. Through this balance, health is achieved and maintained.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, an imbalance of energy or Qi in a particular meridian or organ system can cause physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. When emotions are held on to over long periods of time, or when they result from a particularly stressful or traumatic event, they can become causes of illness. Emotions also can result from an imbalanced flow of Qi or blood. Therefore, emotions can be the cause or the symptom of a disorder.

For example, prolonged anger may damage the energetics of the liver, the organ with which it is associated with. On the other hand, an imbalance in the energetics of the liver may result in your feeling either constant anger or the inability to feel anger. This is because each emotion affects the flow of Qi in a different way. When you are angry, the Qi rises to the neck and shoulders. When you are fearful, the Qi descends to the feet. We experience a sinking feeling when we are afraid. When we are angry, our neck and shoulders tightens.

Acupuncture is an effective therapy for detoxing. Acupuncture redirects your Qi or vital energy into a more balanced flow. It provides support to the underlying energetic spheres affected by your anxiety, helping to resolve the cause or effects of your stress. Acupuncture releases tension in the muscles. This allows increased flow of blood, lymph, and nerve impulses to affected areas, decreasing the stress experienced by you. Acupuncture also is effective in relieving the physical symptoms associated with stress-related and toxic disorders, such as:
*Diarrhea
*Headaches
*Constipation
*Insomnia
*Nausea
*Bloating
*Body aches...

The specific course of treatment depends on the nature and severity of your symptoms. Acupuncture treatment for detoxing, for example, may last approximately six to ten weekly sessions.

The National Acupuncture Detoxification Assocation (NADA)

As an acupuncturist, I have used the NADA protocol for controlling nicotine addiction, drug and alcohol dependency and sexual addiction on hundreds of patients, all with reasonable to great results. Not to mention great results with stress reduction.

The NADA protocol is simple, yet quite effective. Drug, alcohol and tobacco addictions are major problems that affect tens of millions of people in America. This is not just a problem in America, but is occurring worldwide.

The addition of acupuncture into the treatment for addiction seems to be very beneficial, and almost the single ingredient that helps the protocol succeed. There are numerous benefits for patients by using this protocol... Want to know more?

Traditional Chinese Medicine detoxifies the body system through the organs, primarily:

The Lung and Large Intestine
In TCM, the lungs are an organ system that opens directly to the exterior. It's function is to regulate and control the breath through inhalation and exhalation. Because of its opening through the nose, the lungs are easily susceptible to cold, heat, dryness, dampness, and most of all, heat and wind. This can effect the biggest organ of the body; the skin. The lung is closely related to the large intestine. The large intestine controls the transformation of digestive wastes from liquid to solid state and transports the solids onwards and outwards. It plays a major role in the balance and purity of bodily fluids and assists the lungs in controlling the skin's pores and perspiration. It depends on the lungs for movement via the expansion and contraction of the diaphragm, which works like a pump to give impetus to peristalsis by regulating abdominal pressure. The lungs expel toxins through breathing, especially deep breathing. Deep breathing stimulates lymphatic flow, which eliminates toxins. The skin eliminates waste and toxins through perspiration. The colon eliminates toxins from the liver and digestive tract. The lungs are our attachment to the breath of life and the large intestines is it's buddy. Incorporate deep breathing and exercise along with a tall glass of psyillium husk to get things moving.

The Liver and Gallbladder
In TCM, the liver is the "farmer who cultivates". It stores blood, governs and regulates the blood, organizes the "free flow" of Qi energy to promote circulation which cultivates our emotions, soothes digestion, regulates menstruation and bile secretion. The liver changes harmful toxins into substances, which can be eliminated safely the colon or kidneys. The liver is our master cleansing organ and the gall bladder is its mate. Enjoy a tall glass of water with a 1/2 lemon squeezed into it.

The Spleen and Stomach
In TCM, the spleen transports and transforms food and body fluids for transporting, for absorption, raises the body energy and controls the blood by keeping it in the vessels. When improper function occurs with the Spleen there is weight gain, high cholesterol, hypertension, bleeding disorders, dampness and a heavy sensation, muscle weakness and atrophy. The blood and lymphatic system transport waste and toxins to other areas for elimination, including cellular waste. The stomach is the center of our 'gut feelings' our immune system center and the spleen (pancreas) is it's associate. Eat the cleanest, purest foods, that are the least processed. Enjoy health probiotics found in yogurt and acidophilus. Avoid greasy, fried foods.

The Kidneys and Bladder
In TCM, the kidneys store our essence or the basic materials that make up our constitution and the reproductive fluids that create life. All organs are dependent on the Kidneys for proper growth, reproduction, water flow and control and the balance of "fire and water". The liver sends water soluble waste to the kidneys, where they are further filtered and passed through the bladder for elimination. The kidneys filter nutrients and waste from the blood. The kidneys are our major filter and the bladder is it's friend. Boil 4 cups of water and a handful of corn silk. Drink this tea for amazing results.

Counseling and Psychotherapy:

Issues that you want to "Let go of" respond to counseling and to a wide variety of psychotherapies.

Yoga Therapy:

The Yoga Detox is a 3,5, or 7 day plan that can be used to help the body to eliminate toxins from your body. Modern day lifestyles and environmental stressors can overburdened our body systems and make them weak. Below is an overview of the yogic detox as well as a 3, 5 and 7 day plan to cleanse the body, the mind and our emotional body!

Detoxing with Pranayamas

The Yogic Breath

This exercise can be done without instruction, without danger, and with a good chance that your discomfort and stressful feelings will be reduced. Relaxation Breath is the most powerful tool for stress management.

Sit up, with your back straight in any position. Place your tongue against the ridge of tissue just behind your upper front teeth and keep it there throughout the exercise. Exhale completely through your mouth.

Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose to a mental count of four. Hold your breath for a count of seven. Exhale completely through your mouth, to a count of eight. Repeat this cycle three more times for a total of four breaths. Try to do this breathing exercise at least twice a day. You can repeat the whole sequence as often as you wish, but don't do it more than four breaths at one time for the first month of practice. This exercise is fairly intense and has a profound effect on the nervous system.

Deep Diaphram Breath

Sit with your legs crossed in a comfortable position. Breathe slowly and evenly from your diaphragm, through your nose. Fill your lower abdomen, lungs, then chest with air. Hold for a four count then slowly exhale the air out from your chest, lungs, then lower abdomen. Repeat 3 or 4 times. That's it! Just allow your shoulders to drop and your face relax as you breath, deep.

The Fire Breath

This exercise can be done by first taking a seat in a chair or on the floor. Close your eyes and take your focus inward to the third eye focusing your attention to behind your eye lids, between the eyebrows. Raise your right hand. Touch the tip of your ring finger and thumb together, then close off the right nostril with the right index finger. Start a powerful "breath of fire" by rapidly inhaling and exhaling through the left nostril just like sniffing in and out in rapid succession. Do this for 30 seconds. Switch sides. With the right middle finger, close off the left nostril, then repeat the rapid fire inhale/exhales through the right nostril. 30 seconds. Then repeat the sequence once again.

This exercise boosts the immune system, clears the sinuses, tonifies the lungs and clears the mind.

Detoxing with Asanas

Your daily asana practice is a must. Slow, steady, rhythmic asanas allow you to concentrate, work deeper into each pose and sweat! This warms the body, moves blood and lymph and increases total body circulation as it tonifies the heart.

A great overall muscle toner, Chakra balancer, Aura cleanser, mind wakening and cleansing exercise is the Sun Salutation exercise. Learn how to do it as a great part of your detoxing yoga therapy.

Also consider Breath Exercises, Child's Pose, Cat, Head to Knee, Knee to Chest, Laying Down Twists, Standing and Seated Forward Bends, Standing Knee Squeeze, Seated Twists..

Detoxing with Diet

Be sure and follow the nutritional advise above. It is highly recommended to eliminate acidic foods and eat more alkaline foods.

Juice Therapy helps the eliminative and cleansing capacity of the organs of elimination, specifically lungs, liver, kidneys and the skin. Through raw forms of fruits and vegetable you can utilize the enzymes to eliminate metabolic waste and toxins. It affords a physiological rest to the digestive and assimilative organs. After the juice fasting or juice therapy, the digestion of food and the utilization of nutrients is improved.

Try this Detox Juice

Juice the following:
beet root, broccoli, parsely, apple, celery,
carrot, parsnips and wheat grass juice

Foods To Avoid: What you don?t eat may be even more important than what you do eat. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and sugar, because they tend to accumulate in the system. If you can?t avoid them, then at least cut down.

Reduce or Avoid Caffeine: Caffeine is something many people in America and Europe are used to bringing in their daily lives. Though many studies have shown that this addictive stimulant can help produce symptoms of anxiety, insomnia and the like. Caffeine is found in coffee, tea, chocolate, many sodas and even certain medications. Always ask your doctor about a medication before using it. Also, ask the doctor if there is an alternative medication if your medicine contains caffeine.

Reduce Processed and Refined Foods: Processed food can rob your food of nutrients and vitamins that your body needs to fight off stress and promote good health. Try to buy whole foods, unprocessed foods and try and stay away from "instant" foods, preservatives, artificial flavors, saturated fat and MSG.

Reduce Sugar Intake: Too much sugar can rob our body of essential nutrients. Yet don't be so fast as to replace the sugar with Stevia the natural sweetener from the Stevia plant. Artificial sweetener can also cause anxiety as well as other health concerns.

Reduce Alcohol Intake: In small amounts, alcohol can be good for your heart but too much alcohol is not a good thing for your body and too large of an intake increases your body's need for extra vitamins. The body has a harder time using oxygen. As a result, you can become more sensitive to stress - which in turn can cause anxiety reactions. It can also cause depression.

Detoxing Body Care

Hydrotherapy in the form of baths, steam or dry saunas and body brushing help the body to quicken the elimination process through the skin.

Steam baths are one of the most important time-tested water treatments which induces perspiration in a most natural way. The patient sit on a stool inside a specially designed cabinet or a steam room. Before entering, the patient should drink one or two glasses of cold water. The duration of the steam bath is generally 10 to 20 minutes or until perspiration takes place. A cold shower should be taken immediately after the bath. Very weak patients, pregnant women, cardiac patients and those suffering from high blood pressure should avoid this bath. If the patient feels uneasy during the steam bath, he or she should be immediately taken out and given a glass of cold water and the face washed with cold water.

Body Brushing helps our lymphatic system to remove toxins from the body. Five minutes of dry body brushing before your bath or shower helps to get fluids moving and boosts blood flow. Use a natural bristle brush and take long strokes. Start at your feet, brushing up your legs and thighs towards the groin. Work in circular movements over the tummy, then do hands and arms, back and across the shoulders. Use gentle downward strokes on your neck, throat and chest. Your skin may redden and start tingling as the body brushing increases the circulation in areas of greatest concentration.

Meditation Therapy:

Meditation is a time-honored technique that can take you into infinite dimensions of consciousness. One major principle to meditation is in the ability to completely quiet your mind. Quieting the mind comes as a result of meditating over a long period of time, but any time you are looking within, you are meditating.

There are many meditation methods. Some are passive and others are active -- not in the physical sense, but in the sense that you actually do something during meditation. Meditators learn to focus their awareness and direct it onto an object: the breath, a phrase or word: a mantra, repeated silently, a memorized inspirational phrase, an image in the mind's eye. Researchers have documented immediate benefits in terms of lowered blood pressure, decreased heart and respiratory rate, increased blood flow, and other measurable signs of the relaxation response.

Meditation will calm an agitated mind, creating optimal physical and mental health, undo our sense of separateness, which is the common root of fear and misery, unify consciousness, putting us in touch with our higher self and connect us to higher consciousness. Meditation restructures the mind, allowing us to achieve our full potential as human beings.

Fold your hands gently in your lap and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths. Then just sit. If you have never meditated before, you will probably feel as if your mind is full of thoughts. Don't try to stop the thoughts, just watch them. Imagine that you are on the bank of a river and that your thoughts are the river going by. Don't try to stop the river, just watch it. Within a week, you will see the river begin to slow down. You may become impatient, or even bored. That's okay. If you find yourself complaining, just watch the thoughts pass by. Do this for 5 to 10 minutes. You may find that you fall asleep because you are so relaxed. That's good because, in many ways, you have begun to let go. Continue at this pace and each day allow just alittle more time for yourself to meditate. Doing this allows you to relax and forget about time.

Consider the amazing power of the Deluxe Meditation Kit . Whether for meditation, quiet reflection or for creating a peaceful environment to be yours, the opportunity awaits those ready to explore the world of meditation!


Color Therapy

When you are balanced, you can more effectively fight dis-ease, rid your system of toxins, as well as, negative patterns. You can achieve balance through the vibrational remedy and application of color. Color inteacts with the human energy system in a unique way to stablize physical, emotional, mental and spiritual conditions.

Detoxing:

Do a complete color make-over! Start with the lowest Chakra energy center and work up through the rainbow colors, from red at the bottom of the feet to violet at the top of the head! Start Here

Determine what color you need. Learn more about your personal Color Therapy Analysis.


Music/Sound Therapy:

Vibrational medicine, which validates that everything in the universe is in a state of vibration and the frequency at which an object or person most naturally vibrates is called resonance. The chakras, bones, and organs in the body all possess a different resonant frequency. When an organ or part of the body is vibrating out of tune or nonharmoniously, it is called "dis ease" or disease. A body is in a healthy state of being when each cell, each organ creates a resonance that is in harmony with the whole being.

Music is a powerful tool that can be used in so many ways. It has been proven that the type of music that makes a person relax or become receptive is not any one kind. It all depends on the individual and their affinity with it.

Healing Music is recommended for stress reduction and mind clearing by soothing the sympathetic nervous system.


Metaphysical Remedies:

The power of your mind and your belief system has everything to do with the condition, the speed and the way that you heal.

* Our Belief System is one of the major factors that can get us through situations or can cause our life to crumble around us! I do believe that there is a lot of innate goodness and balancing our minds do subconsciously to get us through hard times. The other portion of this is how we "program" ourselves to deal with any given situation.

* Our self-confidence and self-love are often the key to opening and strengthening this portion of our thoughts which in turn emanates from ourselves!

* Energy follows thought. Program thought to be positive and your energy will reflect it!

* Really appreciating what we DO have as opposed to what we would like to have, sometimes makes a signifcant difference. This is always an important element in healing that is often neglected.


Crystal Remedy Reference

Crystals have both piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties. This means that the polarities of the crystal will change when subjected to pressure or heat (even body heat from the hands). This will radiate energy from the crystal due to this reversal of polarities. It provides the transfer, storage and transformation of energy.

Offering a balanced energy field, energy modification, amplifies both energy and thought, clarity in thinking, and harmony and alignment with the chakra energy areas.

The Complete Chakra Kit stimulates the seven main energy sources which govern all the major organs and psychologically alters and clears the body's energy in order to allow healing to take place.

Crystal Medicine Pouches are based on the Native American Medicine Pouches, each suede pouch comes with several crystals, sage for cleansing negativity and the best way to use, cleanse and energize them in order to get what you want out of life!!

Crystal Empowerment Pouches are individually filled with several crystals to strengthen and enhance the best energy for each situation. Each suede pouch comes with several crystals and best way to use, cleanse and energize them in order to get what you want out of life!!

Crystal Elixirs are wonderfully scented oils come in .05 ounce roll-on bottles and contain genuine crystals in vibrationally compatible essential oil blends. They are fantastic for Chakra work, energy healing, as an Aura Balancer, as a balancing perfume oil or simply as a "refresher" for your Gem Potpourri. Crystal Elixir oil blends are used externally.

Gem Essence are the infusion of crystals, spring water and the power of the sun/moon in a bottle! These essence work in harmony with the body by interacting with our bio-sheath and are natural and self-adjusting. When crystals are activated by natural sunlight, they transfer their vibrational signature into water, creating a remedy that is safe, effective and used in conjunction with all modalities of healing. Gem Essence waters can be used internally.

Crystals for Detoxing

Reducing stress levels is one of the most affective ways to "release" tension, negative energy and boost the immune system. Stress plays a major role in accumulated toxins and emotional garbage. Here are helpful crystals for cleansing and detoxing:

Amethyst is the great detoxer! Make a gem essence from amethyst and use it under the tongue, 8-10 drops under the tongue, 3-4 times a day. Use 2 droppers full in the bath. Blend 20 drops into massage oil and body/skin lotions. Add it to all acne cleansers.

Apophyllite calms apprehension, overcoming stess, worry and anxiety by releasing suppressed emotions. This crystal relieves mental blockage along with negative thought patterns, helping uncertainties to be tolerated.

Bloodstone: Useful in removing obstacles in life. This crystal is one of the most recommended stones for blood and circulation issues. Bloodstone is an immune stimulator and energy cleanser. It is believed to neutralize toxins. Believed to be helpful with menstrual cramps, anemia, bloodclots, hemorrhoids, birthing/reproductive issues and imbalance. It has been used for cleansing heart and blood circulation, marrow, thymus and lungs. Helps purify toxic blood and detoxify the kidneys, liver, and spleen. It can be placed in a bowl of water or in bath water to ensure peaceful sleep and protects against nightmares.

Chakra balancing and an Aura cleansing should be apart of any detoxing regime.

Danburite, Selenite and Lepidolite all locate problems within the body. Use these stones to scan for irregularities that can lead you to energy blockage. Lay these three stones in a grid on the floor. Selenite at the head and Danburite and Lepidolite to the left and right of your shoulders. Lay between them for about 15-20 minutes. Crystal grids are very appropriate for clearing negative energies, bringing more energy to the body, mind and spirit and revitalizing a person that suffers from poor assimilation, digestion and poor circulation.

Fluorite: is the stone of balance and coordination. It is a multi-level healing stone, encompassing all the other gemstones and their energies due to their rainbow of colors. Tonifies spleen, lungs, detoxification, anxiety, insomnia. This stone is an excellent stone for healing. It clears, cleanses, dispels, purifies and reorganizes anything in the body that is not in perfect order.

Do the NADA protocol, found under Traditional Chinese Medicine. Use a hematite pair, crystal wand or terminated crystal. Consider using your crystals in acupressure points, trigger points and for soothing the body with massage.

Quartz: is thought to amplify both body energy and thoughts. It can assist in the creation of power, clarity of thinking, meditation, cleansing, clearing the aura, spiritual development and healing.

Ruby: contains chromium (blood sugar balance). Stimulates the body's immunity, circulation, menses, and pituitary stimulation. This gemstone benefits the heart and circulatory system, and can assist in the filtration and detoxification of the body.
