Home remedies for detoxification: I need to know what is the best way to clean the respiratory and circulatory system of our body.

There are many popular books on the subject of cleansing and detoxification currently on the market. Don't be mislead by thinking you need to spend a lot of money, take expensive supplementsor undergo expensive therapies to help your body eliminate--unless you have a significant toxic load (from heavy metals, toxic chemical exposures etc.) The basic principle is to help your body ELIMINATE. Your primary organs of elimination are your lungs, kidneys, liver, and bowels. (Secondarily skin, and reproductive system for women.)

  1. Proper sleep. Your body's cells tend to eliminate toxins at night through the lymphatic channels.
  2. Exercise. At least 30 minutes of aerobic or deep breathing exercises daily.
  3. Diet. Ensure you are drinking at least 1/2 your body weight in ounces of pure/filtered water daily. One of my favorite cleansing drinks is 1 1/2 liters of filtered water, juice of 3 lemons or limes, a little honey, a little cayenne pepper, some grated ginger (to taste), and a tablespoon or so of organic apple juice concentrate. Mix in a blender or shaker and drink a couple of times daily. You should also avoid coffee, alcohol, soda pop etc. while you are undergoing this process. Foods should be primarily high fiber, vegetarian and "anti-inflammatory." (i.e. non-acid forming) to place less stress on the kidneys, liver and immune system.
  4. Natural Therapies. Castor oil packs, dry skin brushing, clay foot wraps, lymphatic massage, colon hydrotherapy, saunas, epsom salt baths etc. may be used tohelp the body eliminate.
  5. Mental/Emotional. Do not overlook the powerful aspect of eliminating mental/emotional garbage. Many people haverituals which they use to do this. Consciously, identify your "garbage" and look for meaningful ways to get rid of your mental/emotional poisonous thoughts.

A balanced diet with best biologically grown fruits and vegetables, less meat and little white sugars or carbohydrates. Plenty of uncarbonated water.

No alcohol and nicotine and a daily walk of minimum 30 minutes on fresh air.

To actively detox you may use coffee enemas and a liver flush that will detox the liver and also improve the whole system.

It is of prime importance that the spine is in proper alignment to ensure optimal nerve function to regulate the metabolism.
