Why do some doctors say detoxing can make you more toxic? Can that be true?
Many health practitioners promote detoxing, others do not!
You’ve probably heard it can remove pesticides, heavy metals and chemicals from your body and that it can help with fat loss and bolster your immune system.
But here’s something you should know:
Detoxing can actually make your body more toxic! That’s right, detoxing can actually make you sicker!
Here’s what happens…
Most toxins are stored in your fat cells.
That’s because most toxic chemicals are fat-soluble, which means they dissolve only in fatty or oily solutions, not in water. That’s why fat-soluble chemicals are attracted to your fat tissues. In fact, there are about 200 times more toxins stored in your fat cells than in your blood. Yikes!
When these toxins are trapped in your fat cells, they are contained. But when you begin a detox program… they enter your bloodstream and can travel through your body to your major organs causing what is known as the “Ping Pong Effect” and can make you feel sicker. Toxins can also invade your joints and tissues triggering pain and even more inflammation that you are currently suffering.
This why so many people who go on a detox program end up feeling worse afterwards! You may even know people who went on a detox program and had a bad reaction to it thinking it was a “healing crisis.” But this is probably not the case.
Some Reasons the “Ping Pong Effect” occurs;
- Not enough energy in the body to handle the extra stress from stirred up toxins.
- Detoxification is attempted while the elimination organs are stressed, toxic or sluggish.
- You may be lacking enough soluble and insoluble fiber to absorb the toxins. Toxins must first bind with fiber in your intestines. If you don’t eat enough fiber, the toxins are simply re-absorbed through your intestines, and sent right back into your body!
- Consumption of alcohol and refined carbohydrates such as sugar and white flour all interfere with the detoxification process. These should be eliminated from diet while wanting to detox.
I Found These Helpful:
After working with so many clients throughout the years, I learned that building our bodies up first before we diet or detox is very important. We must have higher energy levels for our bodies to be able to process fat metabolism and cleanse toxins. I use NuPlus and VitaShake (whole food regenerative formulas) as high vibrational live foods that give us the energy needed for our bodies to heal and cleanse naturally.
