Lets find out more about detoxification in the body.
One of the body’s primary self-defence mechanisms is the conversion and neutralization of metabolic products and toxins into soluble and safe by-products, which can then be eliminated.
All ingested and microbially produced toxins are presented to the liver, the body’s primary detoxification organ for clearance.
The liver has two related processes known as phase 1 and phase 2 in its ability to detoxify pollutants and associated chemicals.
Associated with each phase are a number of reactions, which are reliant on certain nutritional vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
It is common, that generally, people will have low levels of one or more nutrients, or an accumulation of toxins, which will slow down the overall detoxification pathway.
When we rapidly destroy and remove, from our bowel or body organs, certain microbial pathogens – such as yeast, Candida albicans, parasites, viruses and other bacteria, we do this by breaking down their cellular wall (endotoxin) as part of the removing process.
Processing the proteins in the cellular wall for excretion through the liver produces some individuals with a detoxification reaction. At times one may feel like their health is progressing downhill rapidly. This reaction is kinwn as ‘die off’. This reaction will improve over a period of time as the detox process is completed.
If you are suffering with die off symptoms, adopting the following suggestions, drinking more water and contacting your health care professional, to get advice about adjusting the dosages of the supplements you are taking during your detox should help. Remember it is vital to increase the amount of fluid you are drinking during a detox. This will help your body to eliminate the toxicity more easily through your urinary system.
Some foods are of major benefit while completing a detox. The vegetables found in Lifestream Ultimate Veggies are of major benefit while completing a detox, as they contain certain vitamins and minerals, as well as different phyto or plant nutrients that can help support the liver during this time. These are not always essential, but at times helpful to assist with the eliminative process.
Phyto-nutrients are plant substances found in various fruits and vegetables, such as those in Ultimate Veggies, which support detoxification pathways and promote general well-being. These nutrients exert powerful nutritional and antioxidant actions and are useful modulators of toxic reactions.
Foods to increase while on a detox, to help reduce toxic/die off symptoms/reactions
- Broccoli and watercress – Contain powerful activators of phase 1 & phase 2 detoxification pathways
- Lemon and lime – the peel and pith of these citrus fruits contain limonene, which activate phase 2 enzymes
- Soya bean isoflavones – assist in cholesterol clearance & the hormonal metabolism associated with detoxification
- Green Tea – helps neutralise free radicals, which could contribute to toxic reactions of liver cleansing
- Spices turmeric and ginger –contains important components that activate phase 2 enzyme detoxification
- Beetroot, carrot, garlic and grapes – all possess valuable phytochemicals, which support detoxification
More food choices to help support detoxification
The following foods have small amounts of naturally occurring beneficial phytochemicals, which help support the detoxification process. Purchasing organic foods helps the process and, if organic produce is unavailable, then it is recommended that fruits and vegetables are washed thoroughly, and, where possible during the program, should be peeled.
Vegetables & Fruit - Asparagus, Red Cabbage, Pumpkin, Lettuce, Sweet Potato, Capsicum, Parsley, Chives, Tomato, Mango, Kiwifruit, Tamarillo, Pawpaw, Banana
Protein Foods - Skinless Chicken and Turkey, Fresh Fish, Tuna, Salmon, Lean Lamb, Whey Protein
Fat Foods - Avocado, Flax Seeds, Olive Oil, Macadamia, Sunflower & Pumpkin seeds
Other Foods - Almonds, Buckwheat, Garlic, Lentils, Sea Salt, Rice, Millet, Corn, Gluten free Pastas and Breads.
General Guidelines for detoxification
Eat regular meals, selecting from a variety of foods but attempting to consume at least 6-8 foods on the desired lists. Avoid any foods that are going to stress the liver - fatty foods, alcohol, coffee, preservatives, MSG etc. Preferably, eat foods raw and as fresh as possible. Otherwise lightly steamed.
It may be necessary to purchase a high quality whey protein supplement to provide adequate amounts of the amino acids needed for detoxification (Taurine, Glycine, Methionine and Glutamine), and to enhance your liver’s production of glutathione, your premier liver antioxidant.
It is also important to ensure a minimum of 3 litres of water is consumed daily. Water is essential for supplying oxygen, which combats toxins and enriches the blood. Water also is a medium for the removal of wastes from the body. It only makes sense to drink ample water each day to help the detoxification process.
