The Safest, Best Way To Detox – Carolyn Dean MD ND
Detox diets, popularized in recent years by many celebrities, involve taking “powerful formulas” that promise to leave your insides feeling squeaky clean. And, they are usually accompanied by very restrictive diets. Aside from the obvious discomfort of consuming nothing but cayenne pepper and lemon juice or cabbage soup for a week straight, these diets have enough harmful side effects that they should come with a big warning label.
If you’re thinking of starting a detox diet, here are 5 common risks you should know about.
1. Vitamin and mineral deficiency
Highly restrictive dieting can leave your body short on essential vitamins and minerals, which can lead to a number of problems including fatigue, shortness of breath, hair loss, muscle cramps, and numbness in the extremities.
2. Muscle loss / fat gain
A sudden drop in caloric intake can send your body into starvation mode. The body will preserve fat cells even as it goes into ketosis using ketones and fat for energy. After a while, your metabolism will slow down, making it even harder to burn calories once you return to your normal caloric intake.
3. Heart problems
By knocking your electrolytes out of balance because you are no longer taking in minerals, you can start to experience heart issues like palpitations which, in the long term, can even lead to arrhythmias.
4. Mood swings
Missing meals can make you irritable and moody. Detox diets exacerbate low blood sugar and lack of nutrients can lead to low energy and melancholy.
5. Weakened immune response
Vitamin and mineral depletion can cause immune system slowdown, making your body less resistant to bacteria, illness, and parasitic infection. In fact, if you’re already very ill or toxic, detoxing can make you worse and your immune system may not be able to handle the reaction.
There is no practical way to protect yourself from all the toxins in the environment. You would have to live the rest of your life in a hermetically sealed suit (and it would be a short life since you couldn’t eat or drink.) Fortunately, there are ways to counteract some toxins and pollutants.
Your body’s natural detoxification processes exist to deal with the ones we can’t avoid. It uses the liver, kidneys, lungs, and skin to remove waste and toxins when and where detoxification is needed. Supporting the liver, kidneys, lungs and skin on a daily basis is the practical solution to counteract the ill-effects of faddish detox diets.
We start with proper hydration with sea salted water, Yeast Management using Flora ReVive and Pico Silver along with our gentle detox formula, ReAline.
