Maintaining A Clean Bill of Health
By Liz Barrington, Natural Body Healing

Positive health care seeks not only to provide the body with a nutritious diet, but also to ensure our channels of digestion, circulation and elimination are working effectively and that our body has sufficient rest and recuperation.  In fact, our ability to absorb dietary nutrients is only part of being healthy.  The body essentially needs to eliminate toxic bulk waste regularly - that is 2-3 times throughout the day. The body endeavours to eliminate increasing levels of toxicity through the actions of the liver, lungs, lymphatic system, kidneys, bowels, sweat glands and pores in the skin.

Good intestinal health is central to preventing illness and disease in the body. Whenever your colon is clean and healthy, you experience a greater feeling of well-being. However, whenever there is inadequate digestion and elimination, or when your colon is sluggish and congested with stagnant waste, toxins start backing up and contaminating the intestinal tract with poisonous substances that get re-absorbed back into the bloodstream.

If you eat a diet that is high in refined foods and low in fibre (primarily consisting of meat, eggs, dairy products, sugar and white flour), you are more likely to suffer from intestinal problems. Toxic food substances found in most processed foods, cause considerable stress to the body and their elimination consumes much bodily energy, so you should avoid these types of food whenever possible.

Plenty of dietary fibre found in whole-grains, fresh fruit and vegetables, pulses and seeds help promote good health by maintaining bowel regularity and help to shorten the time that toxic substances remain in the body.  Exercise also plays an important role in the health of the intestinal system. Without sufficient exercise, bowel action slows down and the normal circulation and movement within the digestive system is reduced.

Special cleansing diets and herbal detoxification supplements are very supportive in the process of toxin elimination and should be undertaken regularly throughout the year.  Following a cleansing programme, you usually feel a sense of general well-being and you have much more energy and greater clarity of mind.

If you follow a healthy, organic, whole-food diet with a good intake of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protective phyto-chemicals and plenty of filtered water, you are less likely to have long-term health problems than you would if you were to eat a poor diet of processed, fried foods and take-aways that contain excess fat, salt, sugar and chemical additives.

To help you maintain positive health, here are a few recommendations:

  • Change to a well-balanced, wholesome and organic diet:

  • Avoid processed food, caffeine, sugar, artificial sweeteners and salt;

  • Greatly reduce your consumption of alcohol and unhealthy saturated fats (found in cream, cheese, butter, biscuits, red meat etc);

  • Eat healthier protein such as fish, chicken, spirulina, soya and plenty of high-fibre whole-grains, beans, pulses, fresh fruit, root and leafy vegetables - only natural whole-food rich in important vitamins and minerals.

  • Drink at least 2 litres (4 pints) of filtered/mineral water per day (avoid tap water which contains chemicals and hormones).  Drinking magnetised filtered water and then add Liquid Chlorophyll which are so much better for you and can help establish balance and harmony in the body and encourage healthy bowel flora.

  • Stop smoking and keep away from any kind of social drug.

  • Exercise regularly to reduce stress and improve blood and lymphatic circulation. Practise yoga and meditation regularly - these are great for relaxation and for increasing alkalinity in the body.

  • Get at least 7-8 hours of good quality sleep every night.

  • Ensure you have a good work/social life balance, enjoy your leisure time and pamper yourself regularly.

  • Look for natural alternatives rather than rely solely on prescribed medication - unless this is absolutely necessary.

  • Surround yourself with friends and family - positive people who you enjoy being with, and who can support you whenever you need help.

  • Always be kind, helpful and respectful to others - simple gestures are easy to make and often go a long way.

A balanced diet and lifestyle will enable your key bodily systems to function as they were designed to. A body that has total balance, harmony and happiness will become much healthier and stronger in fighting off infection.
