Detox

Pin It

When you think of Detox, do you think of some kind of kit you pick up at the health food store that will starve your body and give you diarrhea for the week? There are several ways to detox, how ever there is a natural and safe way to remove toxins. This can be achieved by simply focusing on creating a pH balance in your body. By Alkalizing the body through diet and also by simply drinking alkaline water, your body will remove those harmful toxins on a daily basis!

Toxin are all around us. Toxins contribute to all kind of diseases. Statics show us that Cancer, Asthma, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Alzheimer, Arthryritis, ,Diabetes, Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome, and various mental illnesses are linked to Toxins. 1 in 6 children in the US suffers from developmental, learning or behavioral disabilities such as Autism, Mental Retardation, ADHD and various birth defects that are also linked to Toxins.

16% of the US has chemical sensitivity and over 7% have been diagnosed with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. With over 70,000 chemicals being dumped into our environment, 65,000 of which are potentially hazardous to our health, it is obvious that we live in a virtual sea of pollutants and carry many of these toxins within us.

With all the pollutants in our outer environment and then the inner pollutant we ingest through poor nutrition and unhealthy lifestyles, we create a toxic environment and constantly compromise our immune systems. Most of us suffer from an excessively acidic PH level in our bodies. This creates an internal environment in which cancer and most of the diseases toxin are linked to, as well as viral, bacterial and fungal type infections thrive in.

So how do you prevent all this from affecting you and your loved ones? You need to make the right choice and begin your path to health and wellness today by choosing to balance your body in an Alkaline way.

By drinking Alkaline water, and choosing low acid, high alkaline foods you will find yourself feeling energized for life!

Holiday Detoxing

Guest Post on Happy Little Vegans, take a read:)

Five Holiday Detox Tips and Is an Alkaline Journey for  You?

We all know that it can be tricky to navigate holiday dishes and bevvy’s that don’t fall into your everyday lifestyle diet at this time of year.  Over Christmas if you managed to zig and zag from your everyday diet that’s okay!  You had fun!  However, you might want to consider some of these tips to get you back on track and do a little detoxing.   Here we go….

1. The first thing I like to do is return to a high daily water intake–2 to 4 liters/day– super hydrating is what it’s called and it works to flush out unwanted toxins and get your system flowing again. It also flushes fat cells if a few extra pounds are hanging about.  To optimize this tip I add super greens powder to my water for at least of 50% of my daily intake.  This energizes and nourishes while alkalizing to eliminate those toxins.

2. Next, I do my best to turn in early a few nights in a row giving my body some extra winks.  A good nights rest is mandatory for healing while eliminating inflammation and toxins in the body.  Late nights and an unhealthy diet over the holidays are a perfect recipe for illness in January.  Giving your body what it needs before it tips over the edge will hopefully curb the effects depending of course on how naughty you were!

3. Supplements are another effective way to assist your body to resume it’s healthful state–replacing lost nutrients with vitamins and minerals gives your immune system a boost.  I recommend a good multi-vitamin, vitamin C, B12, and my staple alkalizing mineral supplement —pHor salts- this works like a charm!  I don’t go a day with out this as it is the best source for 4 key minerals that keep you healthy and can make the detox much more bearable- take a read here for more details

4. Of course, I am sure to return to a lifestyle diet that is very high in vegetables.  The more raw the better with 80% alkaline foods and 20% acidic–I”l get to the alkaline details in a minute.  Fresh green juices and smoothies are a wonderful way to ease back into healthy foods.  Better yet, go 100% raw for a few days, your body will thank you!

5. Finally, I choose a weekend that I can relax at home to do a juice feast which involves 2-3 days of a diet that consists solely of fresh juiced veggie juices and lots of water.  This is the optimal way to nourish and flush your body and…  it’s the most invigorating way to begin the New Year.  Have you done this before?  Do your body a favour and give this a shot if you haven’t – it will thank you again!  A complete outline with recipes for this juice feast is here.

and pssst….. don’t forget to exercise daily as this is also very important in eliminating those toxins!

With New Years Eve approaching it’s a good idea to do a little maintenance with a few of  these tips in between celebrations. Then go easy on your self, but have fun ringing in the New Year.  As soon as you can, get back to your healthy routine so you don’t fall victim to the dreaded detox symptoms that the masses will be suffering from.  Essentially, the January flu is mistakenly considered to be a catchy illness that most people don’t realize is a self inflicted overload of toxic & unhealthy food intake over the holidays that surfaces in January.  You can’t catch this flu AND…. it’s NOT a coincidence that many people are sick–they just totally over did it for Christmas.  However, if you follow these tips you will save yourself the agony of toxic overload symptoms that go on for days and weeks for some poor souls.

But be aware, that when your body is functioning properly to eliminate toxins you will most likely have the typical cold like symptoms from a simple dripping nose with clear fluid to sneezing and some coughing that may last a couple days.  This is normal and to be expected and is a good sign that your immune system is working well. Toxins choose the route to exit the body-for most it is the common cold symptoms but for some it is a break out on the skin, or via the colon in an unpleasant manner, some even end up with violent stomachs that back fire if it’s over the top!  But the less you have to eliminate, the less you will suffer and the better that you are in assisting your body with this elimination with the tips above the less you will suffer, the quicker it will pass.  Take notice of those around you, and observe those that indulge more than others, then check in with them in January- you won’t be surprised to find them a little under the weather for some time, walking around blaming someone for spreading the so called “bug’!   Don’t worry about catching it, give them a hug, you’ll be fine, trust me–that is if you behave a little!!

Now to define the Alkaline Lifestyle – Is this a good option for you?
It’s pretty simple, really.  Essentially, the goal is to balance your body’s alkaline and acidic nature by consuming a high volume of alkaline foods and fluids.  Ideally 70 to 80% of each daily meal should be alkaline foods combined with 2-4 liters of alkalizing water with super greens in your water thru the day.  The 70-80% portion for alkaline foods is basically vegetables, mostly raw-some warmed and some either whole or juiced as well as low sugar fruits.  The 20%-30% balance is acidic foods that are made up of raw or cooked foods such as whole grains, seeds, nuts, legumes, proteins-plant or animal-preferably organic turkey or chicken and the sweeter fruits. Some alkavorians do consume a little tiny bit of dairy and eggs, many do not. The least processed food possible or none at all, is key.  In a nut shell, one could easily transition to this lifestyle diet just by increasing their raw greens or gently warmed veggies to 70-80% on your plate at lunch and dinner and adding fresh veggie juice in the morning. This is doable, don’t you think?

An Alkaline balanced body is healthy, vibrant, and energetic, free of sickness and disease.  It’s how our body was designed to function.  Wouldn’t you want to feel like this?  Conversely, an Acidic body is one that is degenerating, breaking down, showing many, many symptoms of ill health from the simplest form being a cold or a rash to more serious concerns such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.  We all know 1-5 people or more that are ill or dying of these or many other terrible diseases that can be solved with a change in their lifestyle and diet.  High levels of stress, negative thoughts, lack of exercise and poor shallow breathing (which most of us do all day long) all play a key role in this lifestyle and are acid forming.  Changing your diet will certainly improve your pH and reduce your symptoms.  However, it is important to note that one might reach a certain plateau in their alkaline health journey, and then need to manage and balance these other pieces of the puzzle to reach optimal health.  A balanced alkaline diet is key but a complete healthy lifestyle is the ultimate.

What I find to be the most amazing thing about the alkaline lifestyle is that it’s measurable because it IS a science.  A live blood analysis is the measuring device.  If you have your live blood analysis done you will see the nasty business going on in there.  This is done by a trained microscopist who can show you the state of your bodies health by the organisms that are surviving in your blood from yeast, to parasites, (we all have them to some degree if you eat meat), stress indicators, pre-cancerous crystals, and many other unhealthy organisms or tell tale signs of symptoms you probably have that are identified with specific organisms floating around in your blood that traditional lab tests don’t pick up.  Amazing, don’t you think?  With traditional lab tests most of the time we are left guessing or given too wide of a range for a blood screen to fall within giving inconclusive or generalized results–then handed a highly acidic causing prescription drug with a hope and a prayer!  Live blood analysis shows how your blood has changed or how unhealthy organisms have disappeared from one session to the next one, right on the computer screen, with only a 30 day diet adjustment and further more with healthy lifestyle improvements.  Healthy blood is mandatory for a healthy body-no ifs, ands, buts, or maybees!

If you want to take this measuring stick of your health to the next level, I also recommend a hair analysis, say every 6-12 months, which is phenomenal, for indicating your bodies current mineral make up, and how to supplement correctly–this is how DNA is measured so it’s very precise!  Knowing your mineral levels offers information for balancing and ensuring proper absorption making it possible to target problem areas with precision and results.  Together these are fool proof, non-invasive ways of seeing inside your body to determine a) where you are, b) what to correct and c) how well you’ve done.  No more doctors for me!!-unless of course I break a leg-God forbid- crutches are a real bummer!

The best way to alkalize daily is to have a nice collection of tasty recipes that you enjoy.  You can also adjust some of your favourites to reduce the acidic effect on the body or to make the recipe more alkaline.  Here you can see a few of the yummy healthy alkaline friendly options that I have created since I began my blog early this year and many more on my site at www.alkalinesisters.com

Reworking your pantry with healthy groceries like I did here and eliminating most of the naughty processed foods makes it easier to choose healthy when you are hungry.  If the acidic forming food isn’t in the house you won’t fall victim to it.  My passion is to create recipes so it is easier for you to adapt the lifestyle and with some practice you will easily be adjusting recipes like a pro.

What I did was….. eliminate dairy, meat(this is optional), highly processed foods, add in lots alkaline water, tons of greens via smoothies, daily juicing, salads with lots of raw and some lightly cooked veggies.  This may seem extreme to some but this lifestyle is your ticket to longevity and energy.  Everything you eat affects your body positively or negatively, acidic or alkaline.

There’s no doubt about it, change what you eat and the way you live to more alkaline choices and your symptoms will diminish and slowly disappear.  I am living proof and so are many others who have even reversed cancer and are living a vibrant life, well into their late nineties with very little degeneration.  For further reading I recommend picking up a soft cover copy for under $10 of The pH Miracle by Dr. Robert O. Young.  I challenge you to try it for 30 days and see how much you like the gain of energy and the positive changes that happen.  A food chart to help guide you, showing the value of alkalinity or acidity, is right here.  Good luck and a “green juice cheer” to a healthy New Year!

Hello!

I was wanting to get your perspective on colonics. I have read varying opinions on them. I have heard that after following a mainly raw lifestyle for a while, it can be a great way to detox further. I have also heard that a lot of pain in the body is related to buildup of toxic matter. Can you give your two cents on this matter?

Thanks!
Alison

p.s. I have realized in reading your blog for a while that you are in Victoria which is also where I am from!! I live in Toronto now but isn’t it funny that I found you through decor8! Small world!

Stephanie September 8, 2011 at 6:07 pm

So glad I found your blog! I’m a trained interior designer too on the road to alkalizing for better health! My husband and I just read the pH Miracle and decided to go all out! We ordered a water ionizer, tons of vitamins and have switched to a vegan high raw diet in the last month. We already feel great! Gearing up for a green juice cleanse soon. Thanks for blogging- already bookmarking you guys! :)

Mary December 26, 2011 at 8:50 am

My 4 year ols has Ulceratice colitis and I believe this is reversable if I get her to become alkaline. there is a lot of nice recipes on here but idk if I can get her to eat them. She is a bread and pasta nut. I am trying to reduce this but it is baby steps I am now giving her super chlorophyll and cal mag powder mixed into her peanut butter sandwich. I was wondering if you had any kid friendly ideas for her.

Julie December 28, 2011 at 11:27 pm

Hi Mary, I completely agree that this is reversible with an alkaline lifestyle. My number one suggestion is to get a juicer and or a good blender and start making her some green juices and green smoothies. My kids took a while to warm up to them but they drink green juice every single day. This is my warranty against illness even on a bad food day if we are out for meals or they go to a birthday party. Juicing provides concentrated alkaline nutrients in one single glass from whole foods instead of eating a heap of raw veggies which is near impossible to do. A green smoothie is also wonderful as you can put kale and spinach in them and hide them from them, but you won’t get the same volume of nutrients as there will be all the fiber to consume, which is beneficial as well and keep you full longer. What I do for myself to maximize nutrients in a day is juice first thing and then have a smoothie mid morning when i feel hungry again 1-2 hours after the green juice. If you can’t get her to drink these then get her involved and let her help you make them so she can see what is going in but insist that some of the green will help her tummy and must go in. If they seem to rich for her to digest you can water them down. If you keep the fruit in the smoothie to low sugar berries like blueberries, raspberries and strawberries with cucumber & avocado instead of banana (too much sugar) and some coconut water and stevia to sweeten you will be providing her with a really great meal. Put some fish oils in as well if she can handle them, small bits at a time.
I would suggest eliminating the peanut butter and get her on to raw almond butter instead. Peanuts are one of thee most contaminated foods that exist! They will surely be making her situation worse as they are highly susceptible to mold in processing and storing and this is present in all products as pathogens that our body then has to deal with. This is why so many people are sensitive to them because their body grows intolerant to the mold they are ingesting via peanuts!! My daughter has been eating almond butter for 3 years and she loooves it! Don’t use roasted nuts or nut butters as they contain rancid oils from the oils in the nuts having been heated with roasting and once again our body has to deal with these. If she is on any dairy at all I would completely eliminate this (replace with almond milk-not soy) as it is forming mucous in her intestines and colon and preventing her from properly absorbing her foods, digesting and detoxing. This is a huge factor in healing for her.
As for kid friendly ideas, making her veggies fun is important. Do your best to be creative with making faces on her plate with her cucumbers and carrots etc. Gently steam her veggies if she likes them this way but never boil and never over cook or the vitamins are completely damaged and minerals end up in the water that they were boiled in. Brown rice is nice, just steam fry some diced veggies with fresh garlic and ginger and season with Braggs liquid aminos (soy sauce alternative), and add the cooked rice, my kids LOVE this! This udon soup recipe with buckwheat noodles and organic edamamme beans (non-organic are GMO) is another favourite of my kids. A veggie chilli with lots of beans if she likes chili as well as hummus as a dip for veggies and guacamole or fresh salsa. I’m just rambling off a few of the things we make most often. I must admit it’s an on going challenge to keep them interested in healthy food cuz just when you are on a roll with a nice healthy new food they get tired of it and you need to find another and there are all the other temptations that they see either on TV on in other kids lunches that you don’t want them to even know about! I hope this helps, let me know how you do and hollar if you need more help. I know it’s hard but YOU CAN DO IT and you will change her life forever, for the better! All the best:)

ALICIA March 6, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Hello,

I have a random question. I love beans, but see them with a low alkaline number….is this something I can incorporate regularly for more protein as opposed to meats? How many times a week can I eat beans? I love lentil, black and pinto.

Also is brown rice considered alkaline? How many times a week is suggested to eat?

Thank you,
Alicia

Julie March 13, 2012 at 10:35 am

HI Alicia, the beans are alkalizing and can be eaten often but the rice is acidic and should be part of your 20-30% acidic ratio for the day. Most importantly one needs to balance their daily intake to include 70-80% raw and steamed veggies, low sugar fruits & legumes esp. if you don’t eat meat. The acidic balance is made up of proteins, grains, very little sweet fruits and good oils I don’t fuss too much about how often I eat brown rice, I use moderation with all of my acidic foods and mix it up lots for variety but always including delicious veggies prepared in a myriad of ways. I also use hemp protein in my smoothies as well as lots of avocados daily for bumping up protein intake. You can use both kinds of hemp protein, whole hemp seeds and isolated hemp protein for a more concentrated source. I also mix it up with Brazil nut protein powder. Eventually I hope to have a protein intake guide but currently am still studying to understand the needs and types I find most beneficial. All the best to you!

Oonu March 29, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Hi Julie,

I think I inadvertently started a cleanse… I was eating alkaline and was going to do a cleanse once I finished my 10k training which is in a couple of weeks. The last two days I’ve had head cold like symptoms, sneezing, runny nose, headache. I’ve been doing my ph test strips daily and I’ve been around the middle 7 mark, today being 7.6. In your opinion would you say I’m cleansing?
Should I continue since I’m on day 2 of feeling like this.

Fantastic site & information!

Shelley

Julie March 29, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Shelley, it sounds to me like you definitely are flushing and detoxing. If it were me I’d continue cuz the renovation work has already started. I’d rather run the race after the renovation cuz I think I’d perform better. I would certainly make sure that I load up on good essential fatty acids especially avocados and fish oil or flax/hemp oil in smoothies, salads or as supplements for energy building for the race. Some carb load before races but others load up on EFA’s for greater ATP(energy molecules) production. Drink lots of water to assist the toxins to flush more effectively, may speed up the process. And eat your greens! Keep up the good work and let me know how you feel and how the race goes:)

Oonu March 29, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Is there an approximate time for this to complete?

Julie April 2, 2012 at 2:57 pm

Oonu, because I support an alkaline lifestyle, living this lifestyle as close as possible all the time is ideal as a detox. One can do more than this if highly toxic by doing the 2-3 day juice feast to cleanse the system and then ultimately live the alkaline lifestyle. Hope this answers your question:)

Juqweis September 16, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Hi! I am getting a little confused about what foods are Alkalizing Foods and Acidifying Foods. I have been trying to research as much as I can about this lifestyle but on one site there would be a food that they say is Alkaline and then I would go on another site and it say that food is acidic. I recently went on the Greens Plus website and they’re list say that Cottage Cheese
and Chicken Breast are alkaline but your site say that those food are acidic. It also say that Hemp seeds and Quinoa are acidic but your site and other sites say there’re Alkaline. Sorry if I sound a little confusing but can you clear some of this up for me I don’t want to start this lifestyle off wrong.

admin September 22, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Juqweis, Please note that our chart was done with a calculation of how much alkaline ash is deposited by the foods once metabolized- it is the most scientific measure of how alkaline or acidic any food is thus it is the most accurate. Dr. Robert O. Young formulated these values so you would know the priority of highly alkaline versus low or acidic foods, the more alkaline the better. I don’t think other sites are able to qualify there recommendations in this degree. I know it can be confusing so thanx for asking:)

Sherri November 4, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Hi, firstly I would love to say I think your site is AMAZING!
I’m extremly new to this type of lifestly, still in the process of thinking could I really do this?I’ve been making random juices at home with my main ingredient being Kale, carrots, spinach and beets. It’s just what I like so it could be a big NO NO at this point. I’m currently a nursing mother, and my baby seems to be able to digest this juice too.
My question is, would this way of eating be okay not causing problems to my baby(gas) and provide me with enough of the nutrients needed? Does Dr. Robert O. Young book cover this?
Thanks
Sherri

julie November 6, 2012 at 10:02 am

Sherri, you are totally on track, keep it up! This is liquid gold for you AND for your baby! Maintaining your intake of fresh veggies, whole and juiced is totally ideal. Of course a 20-30% ratio of plant proteins (seeds, nuts legumes and organic whole grains), good fats and fruits makes up this balance. Your body will tell you what it needs as you eat more of this and you will crave more healthy food. Dr. Robert O. Young’s book is useful for every human body pregnant nursing or otherwise. Alkalizing is human nature, we’ve gotta do it to be healthy, period! Hugs to precious babe! Keep it up!

Nicky December 30, 2012 at 2:17 am

Can you use the Doc Brocs Power Plants powder for the cleanse? It says it has a ph of 9 on the front of the container but when I add the ph drops and measure it with a ph tester it is 9.5 but when I add the teaspoon of powder becomes more acid and the the ph is then 7.5 .

admin December 30, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Hi Nicky
It is important to remember that the true alkalinity of food is a measure of how the body metabolizes and the alkaline ash that it deposits in the body, and not how alkaline it is on the outside of the body. For example, lemons are highly alkalizing once consumed but are very acidic outside the body. The Doc Brocs are amazing greens and very alkalizing and are perfectly ideal for detoxing! So drink em’ up and good luck with your detox:) Let me know how you make out, I’d love to hear back from you:)

I appreciate the details on your web sites. Thanks.hotels carlisle

Nicky July 31, 2013 at 12:55 pm

Hi
I am unable to do juice cleanse for a few weeks and I live in Australia so can’t get the products but I do have a great vege garden and farm and a juicer and a water ionizer now and use barley grass powder. I have chronic reflux at present and so have gone off all meat and dairy and processed food . I am currently doing green juices and carrot juice to get my acid under control.
1)Can you drink ionised water any time of the day or should it be drunk away from food and juices?

2)I have read Robert O Youngs book and think I understand most things but not sure i understand why you continue to take the ph salts morning and night months after you have been eating an alkaline diet and water. Shouldn’t your body be alkaline by then and if you stick to alkaline foods should stay there?

Thanks Nicky

admin July 31, 2013 at 1:44 pm

Hi Nicky, I would just juice without the supplements if you can until you can get some. Keep the carrot to a bare minimum as it has a lot of sugar or skip it altogether. Greens will surely help you with your problem and help heal the digestive track. The water can be drank at anytime if you are just eating greens but if it is acidic food or cooked food wait 20-30 mins before or after to consume it.
Regarding the phor salts, they are for good measure to help balance the body since no one is perfect with diet including myself. But also, so many other factors contribute to acidity including: stress, environmental toxins, negative emotions, exercise (causes lactic acid to form) as well as many bodily functions that have acidic by products within the body. So the phor salts helps to balance and buffer excesses making it less work for the body to buffer these acids on it’s own in turn providing you with the available energy for other functions of the body creating greater health benefits- more energy, clearer thinking, more stamina, strength, better memory… the list goes on!
Hope this helps:)

Nicky July 31, 2013 at 8:28 pm

Thank you for your response.

After you have done a cleanse etc and onto a normal alkaline diet how many green juices from a juicer would you consume daily?

I am also wondering if the newer revised edition of the ph miracle book is much different to the 2002 edition?

admin August 23, 2013 at 9:52 pm

Hi Nicky, I juice once daily and sometimes a second juice in the afternoon. The newer version of the book has a new chapter on digestion which is interesting.

Alma September 29, 2013 at 10:47 pm

I have a 30-year-old daughter-in-law who just recently found out she is in Stage 5 kidney failure and is on dialysis 3 days a week. Her diet is very strict. Is this way of eating something that would be good for her?

admin September 30, 2013 at 8:11 am

Alma, so sorry to hear but yes…. absolutely! There’s nothing better than chlorophyll to build the blood as this blood of the plant’s molecule is identical in nature to the iron molecule except for the center nucleus. So they work in harmony together. If you can educate her she can better help herself by choosing 80-90% green veggies, most raw, some steamed. She can drink liquid chlorophyll from the health food store, blender her greens into smoothies- avoid fruit tho!! just lemon and lime. And do note that ALL animal proteins-including dairy will make her more acidic and sicker from this alkaline perspective. Big strong Gorillas exist only on greens, thus there are plenty of proteins in them!! Both of you should really read or listen to The pH Miracle, it’s on audio too with the app called Audible. If she is diligent she can beat this. She is too young not too! There are lots of inspiring testiomonials in the book that she will connect with. This lifestyle is for every single illness that exists. It’s how our body was designed to be treated!
But she needs to do the work. And also, resolve any emotional issues she has or stress in her life- this is HUGE! she won’t heal if she is struggling with these!! And look for environmental toxins in her life- cleaners, body products, perfumes and microwaves etc. All these are sooooo dangerous for her as she will by hyper sensitive to them all esp now. Wishing you both all the best.

Rosa February 20, 2014 at 10:33 am

Hello – you mention hair analysis, which intrigues me. Can you provide more details around the process and maybe even recommend a reliable service provider?

Thank you,
Rosa

Julie February 22, 2014 at 5:32 pm

Rosa, if you call most any holistic nutritionist or Natruopathic doctor they can take the sample and send if off to one of the few labs in the US that do the analysis and then mail a report back to them or directly to you. I suggest having one of them help you to interpret the results as they are more familiar with the read outs. The price ranges are from about $125-200. But well worth it as the information is so revealing and gives you markers to work from.

Juli March 18, 2014 at 5:26 pm
