Cleansing Response Part IV: What To Do “1-4”
These suggestions are good for everyone, regardless of whether you’re experiencing any discomfort.
1. Drink plenty water (purified, if possible) everyday. One quart per 100 pounds of body weight is a good rule of thumb. This helps flush the toxins from the cells, and it helps the kidneys with their natural cleansing function.
2. Include fiber-containing foods in your diet, especially fresh vegetables and whole fresh fruits. You maybe choose to use a dietary fiber product containing psyllium or other bulk-forming fiber source. The fiber helps to absorb toxins and “sweep out” the digestive tract.
3. Try to eat mainly fresh, whole foods. Avoid processed foods, refined foods and foods containing toxins and “anti-nutrients” (sugar, caffeine, alcohol, artificial flavor and colors, chemicals, etc.). This will reduce the work of processing unhealthy foods, and it will increase the available nutrition of the body to rebuild itself.
4. Reduce your exposure to environmental toxins and pollutants. Allow plenty of fresh air in your living and work places, avoid fumes from strong-smelling products, reduce your exposure to cigarette smoke, etc. Reducing your daily load makes it easier for your body to get rid of old toxins.
