Maintenance Regimen
One of the prime causes of a toxic body is diet. It is hard to avoid toxins found in the air and in water, but we can do much to eliminate them from our diets. To improve your diet, eat less of some foods and more of others.
Processed sugar and flour, processed foods and other ‘junk foods’, should be eliminated. Processed foods contain many additives and sweeteners, which can be toxic, and overly refined foods can ‘get stuck’ in the intestinal tract, forming a sort of ‘paper-machine’ crust within. Needless to say, this makes it difficult for nutrients to be absorbed. This crust also slows down transit time – the time from ingestion to excretion. This is important, because the longer partially-digested food stays in the body, the better chance there is that carcinogens and toxins will be absorbed.
Eat less meat, as meat is more difficult to digest and contains unhealthy fat. It also may contain xenoestrogens (foreign estrogens) as a result of animal growth hormone shots. Eat more raw fruits and vegetables. They supply live enzymes, which ensure you get more nutritional benefits. The enzymes found in raw foods help the body’s digestive enzymes break down the foods we eat to free up the nutrients within. Helping the body’s digestive enzymes means they do not have to work as hard , which frees up energy, for other important tasks.
After the age of 40, levels of digestive enzymes begin to decrease. This means you do not digest food as well as you might, which can result in getting less nutrition, but also in more waste material remaining in the digestive tract. This, in turn, leads to accumulation of toxic elements in the body
After ACT , a maintenance programme can help in keeping the systems working in peak order. Here are some useful guidelines on maintaining a toxin-free body:
Eat plenty of fibre, including brown rice and organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables. Beets, radishes, artichokes, cabbage, broccoli, spirulina, chlorella and seaweed are excellent detoxifying foods.
Cleanse and protect the liver by taking herbs such as milk thistle, and drinking green tea.
Take vitamin C, which helps the body produce glutathione, a liver compound that drives away toxins.
Reduce sugar intake, a recent study at New York State University in Buffalo documented that within two hours of eating 300 calories of sugar, the number of free radicals increased by 140 per cent.
Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine.
Drink at least two litres of water daily.
Breathe deeply to allow oxygen to circulate more completely through your system.
Transform stress by emphasizing positive emotions.
Practice hydrotherapy by taking a very hot shower for five minutes, allowing the water to run on your back.
Follow with cold water for 30 seconds. Do this three times, and then get into bed for 30 minutes.
Sweat in sauna, so your body can eliminate wastes through perspiration.
Dry-brush your skin to remove toxins through your pores.
Exercise: Two forms of exercise are particularly beneficial in detoxifying the body. Aerobic exercise supports detox by encouraging sweating, increasing circulation, breaking down fat and stimulating the lymphatic system.
Yoga aids the detox process by stretching the muscles and releasing the toxins. It teaches proper breathing, balances inner body energy, and stimulates the lymphatic system.
A 20-minute yoga session, at least three times a week is very beneficial in detoxification. Cut out the stress.
Plan ahead: Manage your time and your duties.
Cut down on caffeine: Get your lift from ginger and peppermint teas, which boost energy and mental clarity.
Practice yoga: Even gentle stretching every day is beneficial.
B Vitamins: Include breakfast cereals, whole grain bread, milk, meat, yogurt, eggs and bananas.
Eat carbohydrates for lunch: one and half to two ounces of bread, pasta, rice or potato.
Exercise: Just 10 minutes of walking a day helps detox.
Supplement your adrenal glands: Ginseng is the most commonly recommended ‘booster’ in a dose of 500 to 1,000 mg per day.
Good sleep: Milk or dairy products and protein contain tryptophan, which helps deep sleep.
Take a sauna: The human immune system works better at slightly higher temperatures than normal. Europeans have documented that a sauna, at least temporarily, increases immunity. Take one whenever possible, 2 – 3 times weekly is ideal.
Take supplements: A host of nutrients can help repair some of the damage that improper detoxification causes. Vitamin B12, for example, helps rebuild cells in the lungs and Vitamin B3, open cells that nicotine has damaged. Take a good multivitamin that has mineral supplements.
