According to the latest world statistics, a large percentage of various diseases are caused by malnutrition. This is due to the low quality of many products, as well as the use of certain processing and storage methods that reduce their nutritional and biological value. In addition, many products are contaminated with mineral fertilizers, large doses of preservatives, chemical dyes. We are often unable to control the content of aggressive toxic substances in the food we eat, and when they enter the body, they poison and destroy it.
The human body is made up of approximately 100 trillion cells;
The brain contains ten billion nerve cells, between which there are over a trillion electrical connections. In other words, the number of these compounds is calculated as 10 to the eighth power. At the same time, the human brain, many times more complex than the most modern computers, consumes only 10 watts of power during operation. This is less than what is needed to operate the weakest electric light bulb;
A 2-centimeter piece of skin 0.1 cm thick on the back of the hand contains: three meters of blood vessels, 600 pain receptors, 300 sweat glands, 9000 nerve endings, 36 temperature receptors and 75 pressure receptors;
If you sum up the contractility of all the muscles in your body, they could lift 25 tons of weight;
The glands of the human body produce about 3 liters of digestive juices per day;
The ears can distinguish over 300,000 gradations of sound;
The eyes can distinguish almost eight million shades of color;
The total surface of the lungs is 300 square centimeters; it is 20 times larger than the surface of the entire skin;
The bone marrow produces one billion new red blood cells every day, replacing old ones at a rate of two and a half million red blood cells per second;
Blood plasma is almost identical to sea water in chemical composition;
The total length of the body’s blood vessels is more than 100 thousand kilometers;
The human heart makes approximately 2.5 billion contractions during a lifetime;
Every 500g of excess weight requires an additional 400km of blood capillaries;
The digestive tract is 9-15 meters long;
2.5 cubic cm of the bones of the human body can withstand a load of 2 tons;
The number of bacteria on the skin and inside the body exceeds the total population of the Earth. Most of the bacteria do not cause any harm – on the contrary, some of them are necessary for the full absorption of food;
As mentioned above, we are constantly exposed to various harmful substances, the so-called toxins. There are two main types of pollution – external and internal.
External toxins enter our body with air, water, food and direct contact with toxic substances. Many synthetic drugs, food colorings added to foods and drinks also have harmful effects.
Something similar happens inside our body. All cells, glands, internal organs, in the course of their activity, secrete products that must be removed from the body. This is a normal physiological process, and under normal conditions does not cause difficulties. However. If a person is weakened, does not receive the necessary nutrients, the cleansing process is disrupted. Waste products accumulate, free radicals are formed. As a result, the activity of many organs and tissues is disrupted, which, in turn, can be the beginning of a disease.
Psychological factors also play a significant role. Negative emotions. Unpleasant events also suppress biochemical and physiological processes.
Under optimal conditions, our body maintains a balance between the process of intake of external and internal toxins and their removal from the body. Maintaining this balance is called homeostasis, a state of fluid equilibrium. Homeostasis is disturbed if an excessive amount of food enters the body, with which the gastrointestinal tract is not able to cope. If substances with high toxicity, such as pesticides, enter the body, we quickly feel the symptoms of poisoning. If toxic substances accumulate in the body gradually, the signs of their action do not appear immediately, but lead to sluggish, chronic disorders.
Our body eliminates toxic substances either by neutralizing them, or by converting them into other, harmless forms, or simply by removing them. For example, antioxidants trap and bind free radicals; the liver converts some toxins into harmless substances, which are then excreted through the gastrointestinal tract; the kidneys filter our blood and remove waste through the urinary tract, etc. Many harmful substances leave our body through the skin, with sweat.
Cleansing, or detoxification, allows not only to establish the normal functioning of all body systems – at the same time, rejuvenation occurs, aging and degeneration processes are suppressed.
It is important to remember that physical detoxification alone is not enough – “mental detoxification” is equally important. We must learn to get rid of unpleasant thoughts, fear, hostility and suspicion and replace them with positive emotions.
Signs of intoxication include a lot of different symptoms that can appear together and separately, have varying degrees of severity. For example, it can be headaches, fatigue, muscle pain, indigestion, increased sensitivity to smells. Allergic reactions to foods, plants and synthetics. Many harmful substances accumulate in the subcutaneous adipose tissue – overweight, obesity are almost always associated with intoxication.
The following are the most typical symptoms:
- Pain behind the sternum
- Weakened immunity
- Joint pain
- Circulatory disorders
- Hypersensitivity to environmental factors
- Pain in the spine
- Increased irritability
- Sore throat
- Frequent runny nose
- Limited mobility in the cervical spine
- Irritation of the mucous membrane of the eyes
- Frequent mood swings
- Fast fatiguability
- Bad breath
Looking back over centuries of medical history, we see that the so-called killer diseases used to be infectious diseases: diphtheria, measles, polio, tuberculosis, pneumonia, hepatitis, and varieties of sepsis.
In our time, the situation has changed. Now the list of the most serious diseases (in other words, the causes of death of the adult population) is headed by coronary heart disease, pathology of the large intestine, cancer, lung diseases (including tumors), gallstone disease, obesity and diabetes and diabetes. Such diseases are associated with the type of nutrition characteristic of the economy of developed countries. The population of these countries has switched to a diet low in dietary fiber and high in fat, sugar and refined foods. In third world countries, for example, the average consumer provides 70% of his body’s energy with carbohydrates and starch. Fats are responsible for only 10-15% of energy, and the protein consumed is mainly of plant origin.
The daily intake of dietary fiber in Third World countries is about three times that of industrialized countries.
Dietary fiber affects every stage of food intake and digestion. Their reduction in the diet reduces the need for thorough chewing of food. Foods poor in fiber are digested faster, which leads to obesity. Nutrients from fiber-rich foods are absorbed more slowly into the intestines. Research shows that this reduces the likelihood of overweight and the development of diabetes. The slower absorption of glucose from fibrous foods is especially important in diabetics, and if there is a risk of developing diabetes, this essential prevention method significantly reduces it.
With a decrease in the total volume of food entering the gastrointestinal tract and a decrease in the amount of plant fibers in the diet, favorable conditions are created for the development of a number of diseases. These include:
- Diverticula of the intestine;
- colon cancer;
- Disease of the coronary vessels of the heart.
Purification is a very broad concept. Anything that helps remove harmful substances from the body promotes detoxification. First of all, you need to increase your fluid intake: best of all, through natural juices and herbal teas. For example, juices based on pure aloe have a positive effect. These are not the juices we are used to, which are now presented in abundance.
There are many varieties of plants known as aloe vera. For such juices, aloe grown on environmentally friendly plantations is most often used. Leaf processing, removal of the outer layer of plants is done manually. Further, the pulp of aloe is processed in a cold way to preserve enzymes and vitamins. Aloe vera is a natural cleanser that enriches the body with vitamins, trace elements, amino acids and enzymes. Aloe juices normalize the metabolism in the body, have a beneficial effect on the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines, healing erosion and damage. These juices are recommended to everyone – both children and adults.
Green tea is also very useful for cleansing the body. Various herbal infusions are an effective means of cleansing and healing.
Well, for example, if the cleansing collection contains ginger. It contains potassium, which is important for the functioning of the heart; manganese, which improves immunity; silicon, which tones the body as a whole and ensures good condition of the skin, hair, teeth and nails; vitamin A; vitamin C; vitamin B complex; magnesium; phosphorus; sodium; iron; zinc.
In conclusion, we want to say that the choice of cleansers is still an individual process, so be more sensitive to your body and do not neglect prevention and wellness procedures. Be healthy!
