Effective Detoxification Made Simple

Do you want more energy? Do you want increased focus and clarity of mind? Do you need help to lose those extra pounds? Do you have sugar and caffeine cravings? Do you desire a more joyous life and improved quality time with your loved ones? Imagine how you would feel and function if you had optimal health and a balanced lifestyle.
It seems that over the past few years certain buzz phrases like leaky gut syndrome, celiac disease, gluten intolerance and sensitivity and gluten free are mentioned frequently in everyday conversations. What does it all really mean? Could your chronic fatigue, extra pounds, food cravings, headaches, food allergies, joint pain and lack of focus all be due to what’s happening in your belly? And if so, what can you do about it?
Leaky gut syndrome occurs when there is an increase in the intestinal permeability of the lining of the gastrointestinal system. It is caused by an overall overload of toxicity in the body. Toxins increase free radical production and free radicals cause damage to cellular structures such as cell membranes (for example in the lining of the small intestine), DNA and mitochondria. Toxicity produced by the food we eat, pathogens (bacteria, viruses, parasites), chemicals, heavy metals, pollutants and increased stress cause a chronic state of inflammation in the body.
Inflammation causes the tight spaces in the lining of the small intestine to become “gapped” or wider so the selective protective barrier between the outside world of food ingested and the internal space of nutrients absorbed into the bloodstream becomes compromised. With the widened gap junctions, nutrients and toxins that are not supposed to be able to cross this selective barrier, such as gluten, larger proteins and pathogens, can now cross over into the bloodstream and are consequently not recognized by the body. The body will then create an immune response to these unrecognized triggers and, before one knows it, they are complaining of fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, food allergies, generalized pain and autoimmune problems because the body is now reacting against itself.
 
Optimal Belly Health: A Step-By-Step Approach
Healing the belly in order to heal the body should initially include a detailed analysis of overall health through lab testing, hormonal system analysis, adrenal and thyroid panels, neurotransmitter function, heavy metal evaluation, genetics, live blood cell analysis and much more. That should then be proceeded with changes that include looking at one’s nutrition, lifestyle and emotional state of being.
Once the initial data is collected, the body must be rid of toxicity such as candida, parasites, heavy metals and chemicals. This can be done through specific detoxification modalities including dietary modifications, parasite and candida cleanses, liver flushing, intravenous vitamins, ozone therapies, colon hydrotherapy, biomagnetism, etc. 
Perhaps the most overlooked but integral piece to create optimal health is self-love/self-care practices, including meditation, journaling, breathwork and affirmations. Understanding the connection between mind, body and spirit is important to achieve a balanced life with joy and wellness.
An ideal detoxification and complete healing program would include:
Self-love, self-care practices
More water
Improved belly health
Alkaline dominant diet
Decreased simple sugars, increased healthy fats
Implementation of regular detox programs
Removal of pathogens
Opening of the channels of elimination, e.g. lymphatic system
Balance of the hormonal system
Stillness and reconnection of the mind, body and spirit
