Why We Need A Full Body Detox
Jon Barron and The Baseline of Health® Foundation have touted for years that regular detoxing your body - ALL major organs - is essential to maintaining health. It is simple: you can down all the vitamins, herbs, and antioxidants but you won't see your health turn around if your colon is filled with putrid fecal matter or if your liver can't clean toxins out of your blood and perform its daily functions.
Naturally Detoxing Your BodySome of you may know about different types of water or juice fasting, but very few have incorporated a full body, organ specific cleanse that Jon Barron has designed in this program. Although general fasting definitely provides overall benefits, targeted detoxing takes advantage of certain herbs, nutraceuticals, or alternative health protocols to greatly accelerate the process – particularly in regard to specific body systems and/or organs. The combined fast with an organ-specific detox offers the most powerful cleansing program for overall health of the body. The specific detoxes include the colon detox, heavy metal detox, gallbladder & kidney cleanse, and finally the liver & blood detox (specifically in this order). Let's look at all of them in detail:
Why Do A Colon Detox
There is an old saying, "Death Begins In The Colon." Although an oversimplification, the road to health begins with intestinal cleansing and detoxification—no matter what the disease or problem. And, you miss the big picture when you think it is just about drawing out old fecal matter. We are talking about enhancing each function from your mouth to your anus: digestion, nutrient transfer, waste processing, metabolic functions, toxic drainage, and boosting your immune system. For this program, you MUST do a colon detox before a liver detox or you risk having major toxins push back into the blood stream (since your drain pipe is plugged).
Why Do A Heavy Metal Cleanse
Many health ailments—headaches, exhaustion, and muscle cramps—are coming from heavy metal toxicity. It has been implicated in everything from increased risk of Alzheimer's and cardiovascular disease to mental retardation and cancer. And, with today's environmental pollutants, everyone around the globe is at risk.
Why Do Kidney & Gallbladder Cleanse
The National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse estimates that each year, nearly 100,000 Americans are newly diagnosed with kidney failure. More than 100,000 currently have End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) due to diabetes, and an astounding 7.7 million have physiological evidence of chronic kidney disease. Yikes! Paramount to good care of the kidneys is reducing the toxic load they have to deal with, especially proteins and chemical contaminants which can build up in the kidneys, slowing their function, increasing acidity and raising blood pressure. However, the more important reason for doing a kidney cleanse in this program is that it softens gallstones, making the Liver Detox much easier.
Why Do A Liver Detox
The liver is so important to our well-being that many healers maintain that most diseases cannot develop in the body (that, in fact, no form of cell degeneration can occur) if the liver is functioning in an efficient, healthy manner. Things that harm the liver: protein in the diet, simple carbohydrates, overeating, drug residues, alcohol, toxins, heavy metals, pesticides, lack of exercise, and more. Liver problems can result in digestive issues, constipation, low energy, allergies, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and infertility.
