A true detox must target four main areas of the body (kidneys, lymph system, endocrine glands – esp. the adrenals, and the GI tract). Weakness in these areas leads to ILC (Interstitial lymphatic constipation) and systemic acidosis (inflammation) and the degeneration of tissues. An overall lymphatic detox always involves working on these four areas at the same time no matter what conditions you have. This is the “Golden Key” to healing.
Specifically, the Kidneys need to be cleaned and strengthened because they filter the lymphatic and blood systems. Herbal kidney formulas are best but good kidney detoxifiers are Corn Silk, Juniper Berries, Saw Palmetto Berries, Pipsissewa, Uva Ursi, Parsley, Dandelion Leaf, and Burdock Root. Getting the kidneys to filter lymph (Kidney Filtration) is the most essential thing you can do to detox the body.
The Endocrine Glands (pituitary, pineal, thymus, thyroid/parathyroid, pancreas, adrenals, testes/ovaries) control many of the body’s functions. Gland herbal formulas are best but top herbs are Siberian Ginseng (Eleuthero), Parsley, Kelp, Chaste Tree Berries, Saw Palmetto Berries, Astragalus, He Sho Wu, Schizandra Berries, & Dandelion Root. You can add other specific formulas or “glandulars” to strengthen your weaker glands.
The Lymph System (your body’s sewer system) needs to be stimulated so it can move and be cleaned. The lymph nodes (the body’s septic tanks) are where many pathogens are destroyed and acids neutralized so they need to be strong. Move stagnant lymphatic fluids with herbs, exercise, massage, hot/cold packs and more. Good lymphatic herbs are Plantain, Chaparral, Cleavers, Poke Root, and Echinacea.
The Stomach & Bowels are the major area that eliminates toxins from the body so we need to make sure they are clean and free of mucoid plaque. Most bowels are chronic and have been toxic for a long time. It’s time to really get in and clean and detox them so they can be restored.
