How does the body detox?
Your body has its own amazing internal ability to cleanse and detoxify. The primary organs involved in these critical processes are the liver, colon, lungs, skin and kidneys. They work to filter wastes, protect the body from harmful invaders and eliminate toxins. Over time, dealing with poor dietary habits, environmental pollutants, stress, medications and lack of exercise can overwhelm the body’s ability to detox and eliminate impurities impacting the digestive system, joint health, immune function, hormone balance, skin health and more.
Four Key Processes to Health
Assimilation, Elimination, Circulation and Relaxation are integral to overall health. Assimilation refers to the body’s ability to absorb and utilize nutrients. These nutrients are used by every cell in the body to nourish and repair themselves. The body’s Elimination system uses a number of different channels to rid the body of wastes. The liver, lungs, lymphatic system, blood/ circulatory system, colon, kidney and skin are vital filtering and cleansing systems. The body’s Circulatory system is the key to sustaining life for the entire body. It works to carry the rebuilding forces to the body, as well as aiding in eliminations. Relaxation is fundamental to the health of the body’s nervous system. You may be familiar with the phrases: “thoughts are things” and “mind is the builder”. Harnessing the mind-body connection is a powerful tool for health.
Helpful Hints for Detoxifying, Naturally
1. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily.
The body is composed of almost 70% water. It is needed by every cell in our body to function properly. It lubricates joints, aids the body’s eliminations, supports healthy kidney functions, improves skin complexion, boosts the immune system, and improves energy levels.
2. Breathing Exercises
Slow, deliberate, deep breathing has wonderful benefits. It calms and relaxes both the body and mind, helping the lungs to release carbon dioxide as well as ease pain, enhance lymphatic flow and improve digestion.
3. Stretching Exercises
There are many styles of stretching, including static, yoga and pilates. Stretching exercises can help improve circulation, improve posture putting lease stress on our internal organs, ease muscle tension resulting in greater flexibility, support healthy nerve function for better relaxation and improve lymphatic drainage for stronger immune function. Try Peter Van Damn’s “Exercise for All” DVD for 15 minutes daily.
4. Take a Daily Walk
This simple practice exercises the heart, improves circulation and increases oxygen intake. It’s also a great stress reducer.
5. Natural Laxatives
While laxatives can relieve occasional constipation, they are generally not recommended for long term use. But when you need one, a laxative can bring fast relief. Laxatives have different modes of action, some adding bulk fiber and others helping with motility/bowel movement. Sulflax, Senna, Fletcher’s Castoria, Inner Clean, Baar’s Organic Olive Oil and Fig Syrup offer natural choices.*
6. Sauna or Sweat Baths
Get ready to sweat. Taking a sauna can mimic the benefits of mild exercise. It can improve blood flow, help the body get rid of stored toxins (detox), strengthen the immune system and improve skin health.*
7. Castor Oil Pack
The external use of this ancient oil is enhanced through the application of a pack. Castor Oil applied to wool or cotton flannel and placed over the abdomen helps focus the benefits of this therapeutic oil over the organs of assimilation and elimination, stimulating the gallbladder, spleen, immune and lymphatic systems as well as digestive organs. Adding mild heat from a heating pad helps to further concentrate the oil’s absorption.
8. Herbal Tonics
Formulated to help restore, detox, tone and invigorate various systems in the body, an herbal tonic is prepared from a specific blend of plants, known as herbs. These herbal tonics (from the Cayce Readings) use select herbs to support health and promote well-being. New Seasons™ Tonic 545, Optikade™ Vibratonic™ 3810, Herbal Tonic 208, De-Tense™, Respicol® and Herbal Tonic 636 are just a few of the formulations that help the body’s natural detoxification, assimilation and elimination processes.*
* As with any program, before you start check with your physician if you are on medications or have an existing health condition.

What are Others Saying?
“I just wanted to say that my entire family loves these products. The Palma Christi Bar Soap is the most amazing soap I have ever used.

I have very sensitive skin that dries easily. I skip my after bath moisturizer all the time. (Only really for right after shaving!!) My husband and daughter have used it and I can tell a noticeable difference after only one use!!!! I love it!!!” – D.C., Brooklyn, NY

“Just had to tell you how GREAT that skin lotion is. Yes, it was good on my hands, but when I got home I put it on my itching legs and the itching stopped almost instantly. That’s a first as I have tried everything Marge brings into the house for skin care. Your lotion is #1!!!!!! Nothing else is even close. Many thanks!!! – W.G., West Chester, PA
“I ordered one of your products about two months ago, I think, and was very impressed with the Palma Christi lotion. I have psoriasis which is a fancy word for excessively dry skin – and have found that the lotion is wonderful for my condition. Fortunately, my psoriasis is mild and usually clears completely in the summer sun, but the Palma Christi lotion has almost taken its symptoms away without exposure to sun. I also appreciate that the pump in the bottle works all the way to the last bit of lotion in the bottle. (Most pump-action dispensers give out with 1/3 to 1/4 of the contents still trapped in the bottle.) You can be sure that I will replenish my supply of that lotion.” – N.L., Kentwood, MI
