Detox Your Body to Begin Your Transition to Wellness
Over the period of your lifetime, eating a typical ‘Western style’ diet, your body has become highly contaminated with a lot of very nasty substances, much of which you are hauling around with you every day, and will remain in your body indefinitely. If your typical diet consists of dairy, white bread, meat, French-fried potatoes, processed packaged foods, or street-corner junk food, you can be assured that your colon is compacted with undigested particles of putrefied food mixed with mucous and pus, called mucoid plague, that has firmly entrenched itself into the lining of your colon. Some of this disgusting poison is making its way into your blood stream every moment. It is common for autopsies to reveal 20 pounds of this junk, or more, in a typical case.
In some notable autopsies, such as Elvis Presley and John Wayne, the impacted plague stuck in their colons exceeded 30 pounds. This is not the record, as others have had over 40 pounds of junk in their colons at death.
This mucoid plague is toxic in the extreme and is the root cause of a great deal of human disease, including cancer, colitis, Crohn’s, absorption problems, digestion problems, psoriasis and even the common cold.
Your Digestive Tract
Like the epidermis, your outer skin covering, you have an inner skin that extends from your mouth to your anus. This inner tract keeps whatever you ingest through your mouth separated from your body, except for those certain digested molecules that can pass through this skin by a process of osmosis. These molecules that pass through the inner skin are supposed to be viable foods that your body needs for energy and cell replacement parts. These viable molecules are separated from the nonviable food components, which remain outside your body, to be moved along and discharged from your body via the anus.
If all of the matter that you ingest through your mouth is clean, pure, viable food and water, this process will sustain your body’s needs for energy and replacement parts without creating any health problems and the waste will be moved out with the assistance of fiber and roughage, leaving your inner skin nice and clean. This process will be very nice and regular, based on the frequency of your meals. Humans have a very long digestive tract due to the nature of extracting all available nutrients from plant foods, which can take up to one day in passage. You should have a bowel movement, releasing the waste material, once for each meal that you consume. The bowel movement should be an easy natural process that relieves any pressure built up in the colon. The discharge should be relatively soft, moist, light in color and weight, and relatively odorless. If you eat three meals each day, you should have three bowel movements during the course of each day.
Ideally, you should eat your largest meal in the morning, consisting of fresh fruits and fruit juices. Fruits begin the digestive process while in your mouth, as most contain their own digestive enzymes which react with the saliva in your mouth and move through the stomach quickly. This meal will be processed by your body’s digestive system very quickly, as fruit is the easiest food to digest. Do not combine with any other type of food for at least 45 minutes from the end of your fruit breakfast. Food combinations is something that must be controlled, as categories of foods require differing digestive processes using different bile acids and enzymes. Mis-combining can result in fermentation and gases.
If you have a morning exercise routine, you can either perform this routine before or after your fruit breakfast. Some people feel that exercising before eating any food is the most beneficial for them. I do not argue this point one way or the other, but morning is an excellent time to do your daily exercise routine. If your lifestyle permits, you can eat a brunch or lunch later consisting of something like oatmeal, eggs, whole-grains or vegetables. Later, after work, but within 8 hours of breakfast, eat your last meal, which should be the lightest meal, consisting of more vegetables, legumes, seeds, fatty vegetables, avocados, squash, egg plant, zucchini, or whatever you prefer.
In the ideal case, your meals should be eaten within an 8-hour time period, or as close as possible, leaving your body with an 8-hour period of digestion and another 8-hour period of cleansing. Many people make the mistake of leaving insufficient time for their body to complete its digestive process, followed by a time for detoxing. Eating too much over too long can stress your body and contribute to many health problems. Your body needs to detox, even if your diet is very sound. Your body produces much waste material and dead cells that have to be discharged each day.
You are not going to enjoy life until you completely rid your body of the putrefaction and obstructions in your colon and digestive tract. It is always a good time to modify your diet towards improvement, but, essentially, the first order of business is ‘get clean’. Your colon, the large intestine, is about as long as your body height and has a diameter about the size of your wrist. But, it you have been eating a poor diet and not giving your system sufficient time to clean out prior to putting more in, you may be shocked to find your colon distended to over 12 inches in diameter, but the passageway for feces is less than pencil thin. If your bowel movement patterns differ from the above description, you are in need of a good cleansing. The mucoid plague in your colon may resemble a hardened blackish-green truck tire. You have got to get this problem fully corrected to even get started on your path to wellness. Because we are not regularly confronted with the sight of this problem, we find it easy to pretend it does not exist. But the health issues that result from it are sure reminders that do not alleviate, but worsen over time.
This source of contamination can be poisoning your body 24/7, causing a host of problems. This root cause alone, can account for over 200 documented allopathic diseases, when it is really only one and the same. In fact, for all the thousands of diseases of allopathy, there are only 5 root cause pathologies, in reality. But all the doctors like to have a syndrome named after themselves so they can celebrate their fame and importance. Drug companies and medical researchers love all the names, because they can specialize more products as each one needs a separate research grant and more new shots and pills. Remember, allopathy claims that every symptom is a new disease caused by a new germ that requires a new pill, shot or surgery, etc. Ironically, they never seek the root cause, because this would reveal the scam and severely reduce sales.
Furthermore, no allopath would have the first clue as to how to rectify this problem, even if they ever did find it, because it is not a germ, therefore not even supposed to be a problem, so there is no pill. Meanwhile, the germs in your body are what are keeping you alive and trying to resolve your real health issues for you.
Cleaning out the colon is not a rapid process. You must start with intermittent fasting. Fasting has been a medical practice dating back to as far as written history exists. It is a well-known and effective remedy known since ancient times, all throughout the world….known to all except allopathy. If your dog gets sick, you may notice that he/she will not want to eat. This is fasting. Your dog will quickly return to health, because he/she has been following this practice life-long, thus has no mucoid plague build-up, and because he/she has a very short carnivore digestive tract that does not retain foods for long periods of nutrient extraction. You may notice that your dog has a bowel movement about one hour after eating.
The detox cleanse starts with giving your body a break from digesting food. Many people will not find it easy or comfortable to begin fasting for long periods, so, to begin, we start with daily intermittent fasting periods of 4 hours. The fast is broken with fruits initially, then later with vegetables. This dry-fast is total elimination of both food and water during the 4 hour period. It will put the body under stress to come up with both nutrients and liquids from within itself. The endogenous water that your body comes up with is from a process of metabolizing fat cells. This water is quite different from the exogenous water that you would normally drink, were you not fasting. It is of superb quality, containing no negative imprints of any kind. Using this unique water, your body’s cells start to experience a miraculous rebirth.
During this type of total intermittent fasting, your skin changes function, from being an organ of excretion to one of absorption, taking in any water that is available from the air, as well as carbon dioxide and nitrogen for manufacture of amino acids. Since there is no water available to wash away endogenous toxins, each cell uses a dormant process of burning its own trash. Bacteria consume the remaining wastes.
Inflammation Needs Water to Manifest
During a total fast, there becomes a state where no water is available for inflammation to manifest. In cases where imbalance of bacteria are a problem, fasting can cause rebalancing to occur due to water starvation of hungry cultures. Fasting also stimulates the immune system function, activates anti-inflammation mechanisms, purifies the blood, clears blood vessels, cleanses the GI tract and renews its mucosal lining. In addition, it promotes tissue regeneration and eliminates parasites. Each of the 100 trillion cells comprising the body literally undertake a ‘house cleaning’. Only the strongest and healthiest cells survive, while unhealthy cells, cysts and tumors dissolve through autolysis, a process whereby the body sacrifices its weakest cells for the survival of the organism.
People who are heavily impacted and toxic may experience discomfort during initial periods of fasting. Each individual will have a pace at which they are capable of progressing through this initial detoxification. This pace must be determined and taken into account in scheduling the process. Everyone will want to purify their body as fast as possible, but it is best to set a pace that can be sustained without undue discomfort. You cannot expect to totally rectify a problem that may have taken a life-time to accumulate by an overzealous approach. It is going to take time, depending on the extent of the problem and the tolerance of the individual. A transition diet in conjunction with a custom fasting program will get the job done in the most effective manner.
Pus is an ugly term that no one likes to think their body may contain a lot of. It is a thick, viscous slippery discharge comprised of dead cells, mucin, inorganic salts, infected tissues, white blood cells, bacteria, tissue debris, serum and other nasty ingredients. It is commonly found in areas of infections which the body is trying to eliminate by isolating and discharging the trash. It is also considered to be the same as dead animal meat that is rotting in the colon after being eaten, in an already decomposed state from ‘aging’. Dairy is also a pus producing product when in the colon, due lack of digestability. On feed-lot dairy farms, over-milking of animals is common and the teats are infected, discharging cow pus into the product. This is all very disgusting and everyone would like to pretend this is not the case and some how the junk just disappears once it passes the lips. Unfortunately, this is not the case and the junk just gets more rotten the deeper it goes into our body. Much of it is trapped and remains in the colon for the duration. This is one of the five fundamental pathologies of all disease and is usually chronic, manifesting in the form of hundreds of different symptoms. You go to the allopath and get some pills to sedate you, or block nerve function or kill all your gut flora indiscriminately and, because the symptoms abate, you think you are cured of something. Meanwhile, you’re a disease-ridden body that is just getting sicker by the day. Other symptoms appear and you go to get more pills. This is a vicious never ending cycle that goes on until you are dead.
Pus and mucous forming foods are acids, free-radicals, that scavenge everything that is good or healthy in your body and cause all of the thousand diseases of allopathy. As we have discussed before, acid is sickness, alkaline is health. This state is determined by the foods that you eat. No one can or should eat all acid-forming, or all alkaline-forming foods. We need to eat both types, but find the balance on the side of slight alkalinity. This does not mean that you can or should eat meats or pepperoni pizzas or Big Macs. You should never ever eat this type of junk under any circumstance. But you need the essential oils and other vitamins and minerals found in some acidic foods. You must make sure that you are safely on the side of alkalinity in the balance.

As we discussed above, fasting is the way to alleviate colon-related problems. Fasting is not something that you do for a week or a month and then stop. You must go through a clean up process by following the above instructions and increasing the duration of your fast as well as the clean-up of your diet. As you get your problems a little more resolved, you will find that you have the capacity to fast longer periods, more frequently and to exercise more discipline in your eating habits. You will know when you have achieved your first objective of colon cleansing and repair. You will feel the difference in your energy, clarity of thought, bowel habits and general state of health and well-being. Now, at this point, it is imperative to maintain your program to avoid falling back into the old habits.
Do not wait for your autopsy to cleanse your colon. When you are living in accord with Nature, you will definitely know the difference. Now you know why and how to stay well.
