Detoxify Your Body, Lose Weight

Toxic America We are bombarded with toxins, whether in the foods we eat (pesticides and processed foods), the health and beauty products we use or in over the counter drugs we take.  Our liver and kidneys can filter out  a certain amount of toxins, but many toxins are stored in our fatty tissues and other major organs, even our brain.   Aluminum has been found in brain tissue of Alzheimer’s victims, dioxin in breast tissue and synthetic musk (from cologne & perfume) in the cord blood from newborns.  Many synthetic chemicals like those found in products with synthetic “fragrance”  are stored in fatty tissue.  Your body will not let go of fatty tissue until the toxins are cleansed from the body.   Essential oils can help with that cleansing process.

Green Up Your Home One place to start cleansing your body is to eliminate any chemical laden household cleaners,  air fresheners, unnecessary over the counter drugs and health and beauty products containing “fragrance” in the ingredients.  Use only therapeutic grade essential oils  to scent  your body and home.  Next,  assess your food intake.  Try and eliminate as many processed foods as possible and replace them with whole fruits and vegetables and whole grain products.   Simply drinking lemon essential oil or peppermint essential oil in your water is gently detoxifying your body.  Simply eating fruits and veggies for a couple of days is a gentle way to start cleansing your digestive system.   Digestive enzymes may help keep the bowels regular so toxins can be eliminated quickly and comfortably.

Naturally Detoxify Citrus oils like lemon and grapefruit are especially beneficial to cleansing the body.  These citrus oils can be applied directly to the skin aNatural ways to detoxnd massaged into areas with  cellulite.  Combine 2-3 drops of therapeutic, food grade essential oil with a teaspoon of V-6 carrier oil and massage directly to area.  The essential oils will help to increase circulation and gently detoxify the tissues.

Citrus oils can cause photosensitivity, so avoid direct sunlight 12 hours after applying citrus oils to exposed skin.  

Simple Cleanse Ingesting food grade essential oils like grapefruit in particular can help to combat cellulite as well.  The natural limonene in citrus oils will also help to boost the immune system as it gently detoxifies and may help decrease fat stores when combined with regular exercise and a diet based on whole foods.  Drinking 6-8 glasses of purified water with citrus essential oils each day will help move toxins out of tissue and boost your energy.    Simply add 1 drop of citrus oil of choice to an 8 ounce glass of pure water.  You can refill this glass several times without adding more oil.  You could also add 4-5 drops of lemon or orange oil to a 64 ounce glass pitcher and keep this in the refrigerator to drink throughout the day.   Just 1 drop of peppermint essential oil can infuse a large pitcher of pure water as well. 

Make sure to use only glass for oil infused water, many of the oils will dissolve plastics into your water.

    Cleansing changed my son’s life. He was born with pneumonia and was in the neonatal intensive care unit for three weeks. The doctor said he may not live through the night. He had a collapsed lung and infection filled both lungs. God was gracious. Up until he was 10 years old, he had come down with bronchitis several times and had been very susceptible to colds. Today he rarely gets sick. He is slimmer and robust. Cleansing made all the difference. Natural doctors showed us his blood under an electron microscope and revealed how toxic he was. The doctor’s recommended a three month cleanse which included Young Living Essential Oils. He ate mostly fruits and veggies and some protein. I noticed his thinking and speech improve as well. I’ve learned a lot about cleansing products from this experience and am excited to try Young Living’s cleansing products. I already love Sulfurzyme for regularity. The ingredient called Bentonite in ComforTone helps to grab toxins and hold on to them so they are not reabsorbed into the body before elimination. The psyllium seed (not just the husk) helps to break up encrustations along the colon wall. There are 19 other wonderful ingredients in ComforTone capsules that help to relieve constipation, enhance colon function, and dispel parasites and toxins. Cleansing is a gift you can give yourself and your family. My son is now very active and loves to play basketball. Young Living offers quality cleansing products that are affordable.
