Do You Think You Need A Detox?

If you have been struggling with excess weight, a sluggish metabolism, or unexplained symptoms of poor health, often the best initial thing to do is a detox or a cleanse.

Toxins overload the detoxification pathways in your liver, block enzymes that burn fat and cause fat cells to swell. Toxins not only increase your risk of cancer; they also slow down your fat metabolism.

Today’s world is loaded with toxins. They are in your soil, packaging, furniture, clothing, home, water, air, food, cosmetics, cleaning agents and all sorts of other items. Did you know the average person ingests a credit card size worth of plastic every week as well as small amounts of heavy metals and petrochemicals?

These pollutants bind to your fat cells and are mostly stored in fatty tissue. Many toxins are fat-soluble and must be made water-soluble by your liver to be able to be eliminated from your body in water-soluble fluids such as bile, sweat and urine. These toxins keep building up inside your body, year after year.

A big problem is these toxins – sometimes referred to as “obesogens” – are also creating a cascade of metabolic damage that leads to easier weight gain and difficulty in losing weight.

Obesogenic compounds (fat-soluble toxins and heavy metals) make your fat cells grow bigger and damage the mitochondria in many body cells including the beta cells (insulin-producing cells) in your pancreas. This creates the perfect storm for weight gain.

Many of these pollutants are also considered hormone disruptors. Fat tissue releases hormones such as leptin that regulate your appetite; toxins can disturb this, so you are always hungry.

If your fat cells are loaded with toxins, when you diet and exercise, not only do your cells burn fat, but they also release these obesity-causing toxins back into your bloodstream. This is where a healthy liver becomes vital to break down these toxins into less harmful water-soluble forms, so they can be eliminated from your body before they damage your endocrine glands.

It is no wonder so many people hit obstacles in their weight loss; however, there is a way to overcome this seemingly unbeatable problem.

Flush toxins from your fat cells

There are nutrients and herbs that can help clear toxins from your fat cells more quickly. The green pigment in green leafy vegetables, known as chlorophyll, has the ability to bind with a variety of toxic substances and remove them from your body with your bowel movements. The alkaline powder in the Dr Cabot 15-day Cleanse is very high in chlorophyll.

You can drink more water, eat more organic leafy greens and grow a herb garden – thyme, basil, oregano, parsley, rocket (arugula), coriander (cilantro), radicchio, cabbage, and spinach are all excellent sources of liver cleansing chlorophyll. Add these raw greens finely chopped up in your salads. Use a dressing of cold pressed olive oil, lemon and lime juice. You can also add these herbs to your raw vegetable juices. Add some lemon, ginger and carrot for extra cleansing.

The Dr Cabot Cleanse is a 15-day total body detoxification program designed by Dr Cabot and her medical team to improve the health of your liver, gut, and immune system. It reduces inflammation and acidity in the body, protects cell health and strengthens the immune system.

Excess inflammation, fatty liver and toxic overload is often present in those with weight excess. A fatty liver is a huge obstacle to weight loss because it is storing fat and toxins.

The 3 Cleanse powders will increase the elimination of the toxins that cause inflammation and unhealthy cells.
