In this video, we’re going to talk about how you can detoxify thousands of chemicals from your body safely with food. There are many toxins that we encounter in our environment—bisphenol A, PCBs, heavy metals, toxic plastics, and biosolids. Biosolids are treated sewage sludge.
This contains over 60,000 toxic substances—this is the stuff that goes into a sewage treatment plant. There are over 80,000 different toxins, known as xenobiotics, that you’re exposed to on a daily basis. Your body has a defense mechanism against these toxins. It’s a series of detoxification pathways that turns these toxic substances into harmless particles.
The particles are then eliminated through your waste and urine. The best foods for detoxifying your body are cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, arugula, and bok choy. You can also take bile salts, probiotics, and garlic. Rosemary, thyme, and clove are other good detoxifiers. Keep in mind that many toxins cause free radicle damage in the body.
Your body naturally creates antioxidants that help prevent free radicle damage—especially when you fast. Prolonged fasting and intermittent fasting are great for helping the body detox.
Fasting puts your body in a state of autophagy, which not only accelerates the repair of damage in the body, but it also helps clear out toxic pathogens.
