One Drink for Recovery and Energy – Minus the Chemicals
The first thing you need to do when you are trying to recover from any illness or injury is get rid of the toxins in your body. You can’t live without them, but they make it difficult for you to function normally.
If there’s no way out of your situation, then you have to start thinking about how you’re going to get rid of these toxins.
There are two types of toxins: cellular and chemical. Cellular toxins include things like alcohol, drugs, pesticides, heavy metals, and many others.
Chemical toxins include everything else that doesn’t fall into the category of “cellular” or “chemical.” For example, if you eat something poisonous (like a snake) then you’ve got a chemical toxin in your system because the poison is part of the food itself.
Toxins are bad, but so are detoxes. Toxins don’t just affect your health; they affect the whole body.
They cause inflammation, pain, fatigue, depression and other negative symptoms. When you eliminate toxic substances from your body, you remove those harmful effects from yourself and the rest of the world around you. Eliminating toxins is one of the most effective ways to heal yourself.
When someone says “detox,” what usually comes to mind? Going to the doctor and taking medicine or going to an “alternative” medicine place and getting a shot of something gross?
Neither one of those things actually eliminate toxins from your body. The first one just shifts the toxin from one place (your body) to another place (the doctor’s office). The second one puts more gunk into your body, which in turn just adds to the problem.
Many people think that they can’t eliminate toxins without help. The truth is you’ve been doing it your whole life.
You just need to get back to the way you were meant to live.
If you are eating junk food all the time and not getting enough exercise, your body isn’t going to work properly. You’ll feel tired, sick, or just plain worn out.
The solution is pretty easy: eat healthy and get some exercise! All that stuff your parents (or grandparents) told you about eating fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and plenty of water is true. Exercise doesn’t have to be going to a gym and lifting weights for two hours, either. Take a walk every day, do some gardening, lift something heavy like a child or a bag of groceries, or just dance around your living room like a crazy person.
These changes in the way you live will have an immediate effect on your body. You might not see it right away, and you might be tempted to go back to your old ways.
However, once you start feeling better and have more energy then it’ll be too late: you’ll be hooked on being healthy!
These changes in your life are also going to affect the world around you. Your friends and family will notice the change in you, and they’ll start asking what’s going on.
Don’t be afraid to tell them; you never know, they might have been wanting to make a change in their lives as well!
Saying Goodbye to Chemicals
If you’re like most people, you’ve been putting toxic stuff into your body for years. Most people don’t even think about the food they’re eating, the water they’re drinking, or the air they’re breathing.
These things should all be to be taken into consideration when eliminating toxins from your body.
The first thing you should look at is the food you eat, since that will have the greatest effect on your body. These days, most of the food available to us is grown with pesticides and herbicides.
In fact, between pesticide and fertilizer, the “natural chemicals” in these foods greatly outweigh the “natural chemicals” in your body!
That’s just the food you can buy at the grocery store. Fast food is even worse.
Most of the food at places like McDonald’s or Burger King is genetically modified, and it has been shown that these types of foods cause many health problems.
The next thing you’ll want to look at is the water you drink. Tap water often has fluoride and chlorine in it, two chemicals that are harmful to the body.
Bottled water is no better since most companies just re-bottle tap water anyway! If you can, get a water filter for your kitchen sink. This will allow you to have fresh, clean water any time you want.
One of the most important things is to avoid sugar. Many people think that they need sugary foods or drinks because they’ll tire out and get “hangry” (angry from being hungry).
Instead of eating sugar, eat some fruit when you feel that way.
