It’s a fact that an increasing number of people, including younger generations, are becoming affected with chronic conditions such as cancer and autoimmune diseases. The human body is a system that has its weaknesses too. When its immune response is weakened, the human body becomes easily susceptible to external factors like environmental toxins, which not only change your cell DNA, but also lead to a number of physical disorders.
And, that’s not all. There’s a long list of factors that lead to genetic derangements and the most common include stress, hormone disrupters, parasites, viruses, bacteria, refined carbs and products, pesticides, heavy metals, and similar. Your mind and spirit play as important role for your overall health as your body.
The thing is your health largely depends on your immune system ability to expel toxins. This normally happens through bouts of fevers, diarrhea, and vomiting. But, if toxins remain in your body and your body is continually exposed to their effects, this will trigger an autoimmune condition.
An autoimmune disease is a disorder in which the immune system has been compromised, and causes the body to turn on itself. It’s the toxin that remains in the body that continually makes the body to give an immune response.
A diet rich in sugar, wheat, pesticides, gluten, heavy metals and GMO can easily trigger an autoimmune condition. In addition, antacids like Pepcid, Nexium, and Prilosec can also disrupt the pH balance and inhibit the release of pepsin, an enzyme responsible for protein breakdown.
This leads to protein buildup in the gut. These proteins eventually leak through the permeable gut wall and being mistaken for a foreign body, they alert the immune system. Then the body gives an immune response through inflammation.
Generally, short-term inflammations are the defense reaction of the body against foreign intruders. But, when this inflammation becomes chronic, it triggers a number of serious conditions, including:
- Blood-leukemia, lupus, hemolytic conditions
- Nerves-diabetic & peripheral neuropathy
- Muscles-fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy
- Thyroid-Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease
- Brain-MS, autism, Guillain-Barré syndrome (caused by flu shot or a virus)
- Bones-rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, polymyalgia rheumatica
- Lungs-Wegener’s granulomatosis, asthma
- GI tract/pancreas-Celiacs, IBS, Crohns, ulcerative colitis, diabetes
- Skin-eczema, psoriasis, scleroderma, vitiligo
According to allopathic medicine, weakening the immunity through immunosuppressant therapy instead of addressing the exact cause that triggers these conditions is a completely false approach. What happens in such cases is inhibiting the body’s immune reaction to foreign intruders rather than eliminating the intruders. This bypassing of the main culprit for an autoimmune condition inevitably results in a number of side effects.
Fortunately, natural medicine has plenty to offer when it comes to detoxifying the entire body and strengthening the immune system in order to prevent diseases of this kind.
Read on to find out how to detox your vital body organs and strengthen your immune system function.
Wheat, gluten, soy, dairy, processed and fried foods, and GMO can all trigger false immune responses in your body. Although many of these foods are safe to consume in their unprocessed, natural state, once refined, pasteurized or genetically modified, they become highly inflammatory. That’s why avoiding sugar, aspartame, MSG, trans fats, hydrogenated oils like canola or vegetable oil is highly recommended. Excessive caffeine and alcohol intake can also be harmful.
On the other hand, organic foods should become your priority along with healthy fats like coconut, and avocado oil, omega-3’s, olive oil, nuts and seeds, and probiotics. A Berkey filter or reverse osmosis filter can help you eliminate toxins, metals, and fluoride from your tap water. Alkaline diets, which have low sodium and high potassium content, are also highly beneficial.
The best liver cleanse comes from using burdock root, dandelion root, milk thistle, beets, Jerusalem artichokes, garlic, turmeric or curcumin, fermented foods, and castor oil packs on the abdomen. It’s important that the liver cleanse always contains ornithine. Some sorts of tea, such as tulsi and dandelion, are extremely beneficial for compete liver detox. Lugol’s iodine is another compound to be used for stimulating metabolism and liver detox.
