Rate the topic:( Rating:

Spring is approaching fast and there is never a better time to spring clean your system with a Fast Detox. It is free, easy to do and did I say fast (10 days in fact)? Before I start, you have probably read about the various types of Detox that are available, The total Body Detox, The Liver Detox, A Colonic Detox, Green Tea Detox, the fluid only, so on so forth.

Sorry to be the one to tell but a Detox is a Detox pure and simple all the variations are simply commercial spins of a Detox, they are ALL based on the same principle, which is to eliminate as many Toxins and resulting Free Radicals from the body as is possible, there is no product or diet know to man that can target say, The Liver, the Brain or the Blood the free radicals are everywhere and we must tackle them as a whole.

So what is in a Fast Detox for me you may well ask?

- Lose weight more than you would think without trying.
- Feel & Look so much better, you will be amazed
- Boost your Immune and other bodily systems.
- Cleanse your Colon (without a pipe, nasty).
- Remove up to 70% of the toxins and free-radicals from your body. (pass drugs tests)
- Have more Energy.
- Sleep Better.
- Have an amazing sense of Euphoria after 5 days.

The list really does go on and on, "yea right!", I hear you say, my reply is, I am not selling anything here it is all free on this page, this is the very same Fast Detox we use at our resort and we ALWAYS see the results above, it really is that powerful.

Whilst absolutely everyone will benefit from undertaking a fast Detox and will feel just great, some people really do actually NEED to take a DETOX, the list is pretty long but I shall shorten to the more serious conditions that signal a high toxin level.

- Suffer Type 2 diabetes.
- Heart Disease or Angina.
- Having trouble Conceiving.
- Erection or low sex drive problems.
- Lethargic.
- Quick to Anger.
- Cellulite (toxins stored in fat cells)
- Easy to Upset.
- Many types of Cancer, especially lung, colon, pancreatic,and stomach.

The list really does go on, but all the above conditions and many more besides are caused by imbalances in your body caused by poor nutrition (heart disease and type 2 diabetes caused to a large degree by Obesity) or by damage to your system by ingested toxins and the resulting free-radicals, that literally scourge through your system killing healthy cells by the score, this is a very complex subject and this is an article not a book so you will have to take as read, or not of course!. The other group of people who will really need to take a Fast Detox are these that either, Eat a lot of processed or fast food, feel stressed at home or work, do not sleep well or feel not properly rested when they wake, drink more than the recommended levels of alcohol, smoke or take drugs (prescription or otherwise) on a regular basis, or constantly feel pessimistic.

Let me explain briefly how and why a Fast Detox works so well, most of us in Western Countries are constantly bombarded by man made toxins, by way of what we consume and the air we breathe not to mention the toxins we ourselves produce when we are subjected to undue stress, nearly all of these toxic substances are made by man and not found in nature at all, as such our bodies find it almost impossible to eradicate these toxins especially when we continue to ingest more into our system. Our liver is the first line of defence against toxins entering the bloodstream in the first place, however the liver being deigned by Nature and not a Chemist simply cannot recognise most of the Chemical toxins in which we partake in the 21st Century, alas not recognising them as toxins does not make them not toxic, our Kidneys will help eliminate these toxins but is simply overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of toxins we ingest.

Research has indicated, even without the inevitable breakdown of our body detox functions, the human body is simply not capable of eliminating the variety of toxins and chemicals that are ingested. The toxins will accumulate in our cells (especially fat cells), blood, tissues, organs and remain stored for an indefinite length of time bringing all kinds of eventual health problems as time goes by.

The effect of these toxins on the body is that they form Free-Radicals, in brief these are highly unstable atoms or compounds by way of being open shell configuration and unpaired electrons, very nasty indeed, these radicals run amok in the body damaging every healthy cell they cross the results of this damage soon start to show in the decline of our general health.

So what do I need to do on a Fast Detox?

With most things in life you only get out what you put in, not so with the Fast Detox you really will get so much more back than you put in, there are different levels of Detox there is the Ultimate Fast Detox then watered down versions to suit everyone.

Ultimate Fast Detox.

The ultimate Fast Detox is so effective because it starts with a bang, by which I mean absolutely No Food for 24 hours, now if you eat like most of us and finish with an evening meal it will mean you Can eat in the evening after 24 hours have passed, however if you can skip this meal and sleep for a second night so much the better it will help the initial boost enormously, when I say no food this obviously includes drinks apart from bottled water, during the course of the first 24 hours it is imperative that you consume no less than 2 litres of bottled water. Not fizzy water)

So why Fast.

Firstly this is to stop you consuming any toxins and to put your system into a cleanse mode, all of the major Organs which are involved in the assimilation and processing of food into energy and waste are given a break, possibly for the very first time in their life, the body having the ability to repair itself (with exceptions) will use this valuable time to start that repair process, and it starts by eliminating the toxins stored therein releasing them back into the blood stream for further processing by the body and eventual destruction and elimination.

Fasting is one of the oldest therapies in medicine with many great doctors of ancient times and old healing systems recommending the process as a vital part in healing and disease prevention. Nearly every religion in the world, including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and Islam, use methods of fasting for spiritual, physical and mental rejuvenation.

So After our 24/36 hour fast what do we do.

The Liver being the first line of defence against ingested toxins takes quite a battering over time, and we all know that alcohol is not good for the liver?, so this is the first thing to go for 10 Days. No Alcohol, None.

No Processed or Fast Food, includes fizzy sweet drinks. Most people are to some extent wheat intolerant so no wheat or wheat products, bread, pasta, pastry, biscuits or similar.

- No dairy, excepting eggs
- No Red Meat or Pork ( if you want to cleanse your colon)

That is it pure and simple, you can even eat a little chocolate ( high coco content is better contains antioxidants)

What to Eat on the Fast Detox

All things fresh especially if you can afford to go organic for 10 days, instead of pasta and bread try beans and pulses legumes are one of the best food groups available full of complex carbohydrates, proteins vitamins and minerals, try them instead of the more starchy carbohydrates such as potato, white rice, pasta or bread (bread and wheat products are quite toxic to many people who suffer wheat intolerance, what is not quite so well known is that over 60% of people are wheat intolerant) so it is important to try to eliminate wheat products as much as possible ESPECIALLY during the detox period.

Try to consume a wide variety of fresh organic vegetables or salads a simple rule from Ayurveda helps combine them well, "The more colours on the plate the better also try to get different types of taste, bitter, sweet, spicy, astringent, and pungent"

- Take as much of your vegetables raw or as lightly cooked as is possible,
- Take as much fruit as you like, try eating a raw carrot or other vegetables along with your fruit.
- Take as much of your vegetables raw or as lightly cooked as is possible,
- Take as much fruit as you like, try eating a raw carrot or other vegetables along with your fruit.

This is where the bulk of nutrients and antioxidants ( required during the Detox to clean up the excess Free Radicals that WILL be released) come from and will include all your fresh fruit and vegetables, when selecting these go for as much variety as possible, if you can afford to go organic and seasonal, when selecting choose as many different colors as you can, and different taste groups too, choose different taste groups to.

- Sweet tasting, helps build tissues, calms nerves found in fruit, grains, natural sugars, milk.
- Sour taste, helps cleanse tissues, increases absorption of minerals found in Sour fruits, yogurt, fermented foods.
- Salty taste, Improves taste to food, lubricates tissues, stimulates digestion found Natural salts, sea vegetables, fish and meat.
- Bitter taste, Detoxifies and lightens tissues found in Dark leafy greens, herbs and spices
- Pungent taste, Stimulates digestion and metabolism found in Chili peppers, garlic, herbs and spices
- Astringent taste, Absorbs water, tightens tissues, dries fats found in Legumes, raw fruits and vegetables, herbs.

Now you really do not have to worry about the list above, if you ensure that your 80% if a diverse mix of foods with fruits and vegetables making the bulk and your dairy, white meats, fish, a small minority you will have all the vitamins and minerals you require
