I’ve always been fascinated with the human body. Our body is a miracle. It’s an amazing machine that heals itself all day long. However, our body needs the right ingredients to do its job. It needs the right ingredients to heal, too.
You’ve heard the expression garbage in, garbage out. Well, the body is the perfect example of a machine. If you put good things into the machine, you get good things out of it, like health, happiness, strength, and a good life. The reverse is also true, though. If you gunk your body up with garbage and things that are bad for it (like cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, chemicals, and empty calories), the result will be health problems, injury, stress, pain, fatigue, and even depression or anxiety.
You are what you eat is most certainly one of the truest clichés known to woman.
There are three essential, basic points that are crucial to any physical detox, once we’ve eliminated smoking, alcohol, and other toxins:
• Drinking good clean water and drinking lots of it
• Eating organic, unprocessed foods
• Taking herbs and supplements that boost your immune system
It’s simple. Eliminate the bad stuff and replace it with the good stuff. If it comes from the Earth, there’s a very good chance it’s good for you. If it comes from a box, it’s probably lost a lot of those qualities that make it so amazingly healing.
