We all have our own personal internal housekeeping service – our detoxification system.  Sadly our internal “housekeepers” get over scheduled, overused and abuse- so much that they can’t keep up with their job description, responsibilities and assignments.  Our detoxification system gets overwhelmed from the constant toxins we breathe in everyday, put on our skin, drink and eat plus more sources are created inside of us from a digestion system that has become dysfunctional or too much stress.  A well done detoxification program as the “7-Day Miracle Detox” can help you fight disease and promote your health from the inside out!  You will strengthen your body from the inside out by improving the function of every cell and its function- while revitalizing the body’s ability to heal it’s own self!

As I say in my book “LIFE IS NOT A RACE“- too much of anything can be TOXIC and too little of anything can lead to deficiencies.  We need to find our own individual tipping point of how much of anything we can tolerate before we break something as over heating our engine in our car.  We are surrounded by toxins- so many these days that our natural detox “housekeeping” service can’t do the job on it’s own without taking a vacation.  

We take our car in for a tune up and oil/lube job to keep our car in good shape…we go to the dentist every six months to get our teeth cleaned – so why don’t we do a better job about taking charge of our own health by clearing out the excess toxins left in our body?  As they talk about in the “7-Day Miracle Detox Program”- we need to take ownership of our body and nourish every system, organ and cell in order to properly function on full capacity- not on our reserves or back-up engine.  The air, water, soil, foods, lotions, body products, swimming pools, household products, mold, stress and more toxins build up in our body- and we need to help our liver to remove them.

Our liver has over 500 jobs to do and detoxing the toxins in our cells, tissues and organs needs to be a priority.  We need to make sure our detoxification elimination pathways are functioning correctly and “open for business” before we dive into a serious detox program as the 7-Day Miracle Detox program or my The WHOLESTIC Method 5-Day Detox Jumpstart Challenge .  If you want to help improve the health -at a cellular level- of your organs including the brain, kidneys and liver plus the immune and cardiovascular system then we need to detox our body to ask for it to operate at peak performance- or else we risk disease:

Disease is a state in which certain cells in the body cannot perform the job they are meant to do.  Symptoms are a sign that cells are damaged and function has been lost…proper cellular function is expressed as optimum physical, mental and emotional performance” -source “The 7-Day Detox Miracle” by Peter Bennett and Stephen Barrie.  

Remember that we don’t need to eat three meals a day plus snacks… we want to train the body how to become fat burners and not rely on sugar to keep us fueled up for the day.  Think of it as burning kindling in a fire – or a large type of Duraflame log that is slow burning and long lasting energy!   After your 5-7 day detox where we eat more vegetables, juices, water, detox tea and one meal per day, then you can move to phase two of The WHOLESTIC Method to help break our past habits and transform the WHOLE person from the inside out.

In Phase Two, we eat two meals a day of nutrient dense whole foods then snacks as needed- while continuing to eliminate common food allergens as gluten, grains, soy, peanuts, cow’s milk and of course SUGAR!

  • Drink lots of clean water throughout the day- but not to over consume that you are up all night in the bathroom!
  • Add sea salt or electrolytes to your water if not feeling hydrated plus add more water (12 oz) for every diuretic beverage you consume!
  • Add some relaxation breathing exercises and mindfulness before bed if you struggle with sleep- plus avoid eating a meal before bed.

The next The WHOLESTIC Method 5-day Detox will be week before Memorial Day—and will be slightly different as it will include more detox exercises to do in the five days as cleaning your closets, dry brushing, hydrotherapy and detox sauna sessions.  

Now focus on proper digestion as poor digestion is the root cause of my health problems as it leads to fermentation of your food, gut inflammation, fungal and parasite type of infections in the intestines.  Fermented foods become bacterial infections or poisons in the gut- impacting the immune system (60% in your gut and where feel good hormone serotonin neurotransmitters are produced).  Leaky gut is something that most all of experience and need to heal based on our past eating habits and types of food we eat.  If our digestion is dysfunctional- then we probably have more toxins in our body as our body’s natural detoxification system is altered.  We ignore the symptoms or don’t even realize the signs of poor digestion!

We want to slow down the aging process- not speed it up!  So make sure you keep up with our The WHOLESTIC Method 5-Day Detox Challenges each time we offer them in the future as we should continue doing an occasional type of detox- from the inside and out!

Read the book “The 7 Day Detox Miracle” to really learn WHY we need to detox frequently throughout the year as well as how our detoxification system is supposed to work- as well as what frequently goes wrong with our detox system.

Symptoms of a sluggish or dysfunctional digestive system include:

  • Uncomfortable sense of fullness after eating
  • Flatulence, abdominal pressure, belching or burning sensation in the stomach after eating
  • Headache, congestion, sleepiness or mental dullness after eating
  • Depression and brain fog
  • Speed up aging
  • Body aches and pains (food allergies)

If you continue to ignore these signs then the conditions can get more serious over time when ignored… then we find more and more people experiencing:

  • Obesity
  • Food allergies
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Increase leaky gut (intestinal permeability)
  • Intestinal bacteria overgrowth (as Candida and SIBO)
  • Bowel Diseases
  • Constipation
  • Prolapsed abdomen
  • Headaches
  • Sinus infections and other allergies
  • Anemia
  • Cancer
  • Immune disorders
  • Liver disorders
  • Accelerated aging
  • Colic
