Here are few body cleanses routines I practice periodically to remove body toxins and help the organism with one of his maintenance mechanisms. I have mentioned them to several people and they have got awesome results and I have received awesome feedback for them.
Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor. I don’t have former medical or botanical training. I do these procedures to myself for keeping a healthy body and my body needs it and it works for me. If anyone do this do it at your own risk, you should consult your doctor… anyway, you get the idea. I have to put this disclaimer here.
I have several cleansing procedures, from simple to very very powerful and I apply them depending on how I feel my body or on a schedule. These procedures comes from folklore, traditional medicines, herbal based etc. they are not stablished medical practices or have been indicated by doctors, but again, they work on me and I have seeing them working over and over again.
Digestive teas (several times a week, low power)
This is the most basic cleansing: help digestion a lot and keeps the bowel movement.
I use Chamomile and Anise tea and Ginger, which is known for having lots of health benefits but I like it for body balance. Chamomile is my favorite for digestion, also can be applied to skin for heat rash and similar for its refreshing and antiseptic properties.
I regularly order the organic Ginger Aid from Traditional Medicines, from Amazon:
It’s fabulous, as well as their entire products line. I’m regular customer of their Echinacea Plus for boosting immune system, I have been 2 years without common cold and with no flu shoot by using the Echinacea plus when I feel something is coming.
Throat cleansing (several times a month, powerful)
Our tree big body filters: tonsils, kidneys and skin. They fight for us very hard, I have my tonsils removed putting extra stress on kidneys. Tonsils are part of the lymphatic system and fight infections, they are a very good security guy in a highly transited entrance to our body.
In my view, your immune system is great and you never complain from your tonsils, except maybe once a year with common cold; or your immune system is weak and you get lot of infections in your throat consequently.
It’s underestimated the impact on your body by the well or bad functioning of your tonsils, more on this later as I will pull together several affections for throat/tonsils only.
Procedure: Gargles with water, salt and lime.
- Half a lime, (the green lime one, not the yellow one) I tell because in Spanish both are called “Limón”.
- 1/3 teaspoon of salt. Iodized salt is better. More about iodine on the throat post later.
- 5 to 6 tablespoons of water.
I mix it and I do gargles with this, it should be enough for 4 – 5 gargles. It it’s too strong I add more water. I don’t want it soft, I want to feel it scratches my throat.
Under common cold or a throat infection I do this several times a day. And I repeat it several times a month when I feel the throat complaining a bit.
After doing the gargles I keep calcium pills around and I chew a little bit of one pill to help the teeth. This combination is very acid and can work on tooth very hard causing sensitivity, so chew the calcium right after it will neutralize that effect. Also when I do it in the morning I put a little coconut oil in the mouth before and apply it to the teeth as a protection for the same effect.
Blood self purification (quarterly, very powerful)
Kidneys purifies the blood, but I help mines with this cleansing often. My schedule is quarterly for few days.
One common sign of blood needs cleansing is increasing veins in the feet with itching.
Usually it could be due to low circulation or any circulation issues, no necessary to adding toxins by the body or food or the body inability to keep up removing. circulation issues is key candidate for this purification.
I have seeing ulcers in a feet that never heals and this procedure will speed up healing tremendously, because blood gets purified and the body can heal the ulcer better without the old dirty blood down there.
Surprisingly several feet related issues gets fixed with this procedure.
Procedure: This one is very simple:
- 1/2 cup chamomile tea, room temperature, not hot!
- 1 teaspoon of milk of magnesia
- tree times a day 15 minutes before breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
I do this one for 2 – 3 days or up to 5 days depending on how long is needed.
Milk of magnesia is a laxative, so 1 teaspoon is enough, I have seen people using 1 full spoon and you just go to the bathroom too much. I use this one:
This procedure will clean all intestines in a gentle way thanks to the cold chamomile tea, which also helps the magnesia milk to move down faster. The key here is to take it before meals so you keep a supply of fresh nutrients right after otherwise would weaken the body too much. The body will get rid of old stuffs in the intestines, will get super fresh nutrients and will have time to detoxify by it’s own.
Doing this for long time weakens the body, I even lose weight when I do it.
Liver cleansing (twice a year, extremely powerful)
This product I found over the counter, it’s also a powerful laxative but has a cleaning effect on the liver, very powerful, weakens the body and cleans deeply.
- 1 tablespoon of Colefilaxe
- 1 tablespoon organic brown sugar
- 1 glass water, room temperature slightly cold.
I take this one once every 8 days and repeat 3 times. I do this one or twice a year but far from any other cleansing because it’s strong on me.
Gallbladder purification (every couple of years, extremely powerful)
I got gallbladder issues and discovered this procedure. It’s plant based and phenomenal results after no other medicine worked for the gallbladder. In synthesis my gallbladder got crazy and I had strong digestions issues, I ruled out dairy as the trouble maker but still, it was this treatment what got it back to normal.
The plant used is commonly called Porterweed (Stachytarpheta jamaicensis)
- one handful of branches including flowers, branches, leaves, everything
- 2 cups olive oil
- 2 cups honey
I cut the plant in small pieces, and deep fry it in olive oil until it gets a “fried look”. The result is in some bitter oil, darker than olive oil.
I took one tablespoon of the oil followed by one tablespoon of honey, right before breakfast, lunch and dinner for 7 to 9 days.
This is detoxes the gallbladder, and saw effects after few days. Usually this is followed by The King Cleansing right after because of the whole oil thing and the plant itself seems to be complex.
Here are some pictures I shoot the last time I did it.
The king of cleansing
This is my favorite, and this is like the most powerful medicine that will ever be created. There is a plant called “Palo Caja” (Allophylus Cominia). Very effective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
The procedure with this is to take the branches and cut 4 –5 inches long pieces. Then slitting each piece when dry into many thinner sticks in a way that the interior of the wood is exposed, I discard the shell.
Then I use 3 – 4 sticks and put them into water 4 – 6 hours and drink that as common water. The water will continue being odorless and tasteless but will get slightly pinkish or pale-brownish.
Those sticks will slowly release small particles into the water that will travel the intestines, get absorbed and travel the blood and enter the smallest parts in the body, similar to any NSAID but with slow and gentle effect, no chemicals no side effects.
Unfortunately this plant doesn’t grown in Florida, but this is really the best health benefit I have ever get from any medication or treatment.
