Toxins are a word we hear on a daily basis from commercials, social media, the news and even warning labels on products. What damages or modifies a biological system are physical, microbial or chemical agents (toxins) like medications, heavy metals, personal care products, pollution, pesticides and more. A Neonatal Toxicity Study in 2005 by the Environmental Working Group tested random umbilical cord blood. Can you believe 287 chemicals were found on the 10 they tested. 217 found were toxic to the nervous system and the brain, 208 were connected to birth defects and 200 were known toxins from things like garbage, coal and oil burning.

With our toxic world, it is important to give your liver and kidneys extra love twice a year with a drainage. Shampoo, conditioner, deodorant and sunscreens started to become a problem for my body, as I would lose hair, breakout with rashes and fluid filled bumps. This is when I turned to creating more natural products for my body. I created a natural cream that helped with my pain and inflammation. Even the specific oils I chose help with tissue repair. It amazing how mixing organic oils with organic butter and herbs has created a product that has helped people in different ways. You can email me for more information on my arnica & turmeric butter on my website.

It's no secret that the liver is the 'metabolic gatekeeper' where blood sugar and cholesterol are balanced. It breaks down vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, proteins, red blood cells, white blood cells, bacteria, alcohol, hormones and so much more. If you have hormone, digestive, immune or metabolic problems, then look at your liver first. The exit (eliminator) for toxins from the body is through the intestines, kidneys, bladder, lungs and sweat glands. But drainage of toxins can be problematic if one of these organs aren't functioning optimally.

Supporting natural body drainage involves promoting the efficient removal of waste and toxins from the body through its natural systems. Here are some ways to support natural body drainage:

  1. Stay hydrated: Adequate water intake is essential for supporting natural detoxification processes in the body. Water helps flush out toxins through urine and sweat. Aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, or more if you are physically active or in a hot climate.

  2. Eat a balanced diet: Consume plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, which are rich in fiber and nutrients that support digestion and elimination. Avoid processed foods, excessive salt, sugar, and unhealthy fats, which can contribute to inflammation and sluggishness in the body.

  3. Exercise regularly: Physical activity stimulates circulation and lymphatic flow, which helps remove toxins and waste from tissues. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week.

  4. Practice deep breathing: Deep breathing exercises help stimulate the lymphatic system, which plays a crucial role in removing waste from the body. Practice deep breathing exercises such as diaphragmatic breathing or yoga regularly.

  5. Dry brushing: Dry brushing involves gently brushing the skin with a dry brush to stimulate the lymphatic system and improve circulation. Use a natural-bristled brush and brush towards the heart in long, sweeping motions before showering.

  6. Massage therapy: Regular massages can help stimulate lymphatic flow and promote detoxification by manually moving fluid through the body's tissues. Consider incorporating lymphatic drainage massages into your wellness routine.

  7. Reduce stress: Chronic stress can impair the body's natural detoxification processes. Practice stress-reducing activities such as meditation, yoga, deep breathing, or spending time in nature to support overall well-being.

  8. Stay regular: Maintain regular bowel movements by consuming an adequate amount of fiber, staying hydrated, and leading a healthy lifestyle. Fiber-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes can help promote regularity.

  9. Stay away from toxins: Minimize exposure to environmental toxins such as pollutants, chemicals, and pesticides. Choose natural cleaning and personal care products, and try to limit exposure to harmful substances whenever possible.

  10. Consider herbal support: Some herbs and supplements, such as dandelion root, milk thistle, and burdock root, are believed to support natural detoxification processes in the body. Consult with a healthcare professional before adding any new supplements to your regimen, especially if you have underlying health conditions or are taking medications.

By incorporating these practices into your daily routine, you can support your body's natural drainage and detoxification processes, leading to improved overall health and well-being. Sometimes the cells need something more aggressive for cleansing when chronic disease is intracellular. Numbered UNDA compounds help with many stages of draining toxins; cellular, hepatic, secondary catabolization, renal & pulmonary, and emunctory stages. Just when you thought drainage was a simple process.

Good news! I have a program that incorporates all of these steps, teaches you how to implement better sleep, less stress and keeping regular bowel movements are all included in my weight management program. My dad follows this program for over 3 years now (he is 88), where he manages his weight, cholesterol, glucose and other lifestyle factors with an average of 2200-2400 calories daily. Managing your weight is more than calories, it is a holistic lifestyle made easy through my program.
