Detox to Rejuvenate II


by Dr. Stewart Gillespie, D.C. & Osteopath & Diplomate of Nutrition*

In our last article we talked about how eliminating processed foods and harmful sugars were essential to get your life back and take control of your health. Once we remove this cause of disease we can start to eliminate the waste that is clogging up your system, to rid you of your symptoms. We’re living in a world that contains more man-made chemicals than at any time in history. Food, air and water contain pesticides, chemicals, residual industrial waste, petroleum discharges, antibiotics and xenoestrogens, processed dead foods. If you wish to live a long and healthy life, you need to protect your own body.

If You Experience One Or More Of The Following: Flatulence – Gas – Bloating – Excess Weight – Joint Aches and Pains – Impaired Digestion – Irritability – Mood Swings – Bad Breath – Foul-Smelling Stools – Frequent Fatigue – Low Energy – Recurring Headaches – Constipation – Protruding Belly (Pooch) – Powerful Food Cravings – Skin Problems – Metallic Taste in Mouth.


Your amazing body does countless functions to keep you going. With every second, eight million blood cells die off and another eight million are made. But your body requires nutrients and essential oils to do this. Each day your kidneys filter about two hundred quarts of blood. That’s seventy-three thousand quarts of blood per year! Your heart pumps more than one hundred thousand times per day, thirty-seven million beats per year. But does it ever take a break or a vacation? Never! Somewhere below, your liver is busy performing five-hundred different functions to detoxify so that it does not overload with waste or poisons and die -even in a healthy body.

Your liver is the hub of phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification. These phases require enzymes that the body itself does not produce. These enzymes are found naturally in green leafy cruciferous vegetables, like Kale, broccoli, celery. Without these in your diet your body accumulates toxins like inflammatory age inducing sugars, bad cholesterol and cancer producing estrogens.

What Is Detoxification?

Your body has its own natural methods of cleansing itself in order to rid the organs, blood and tissues of any by-products of metabolic breakdown and toxicity. When the poisons inside you have been purged, degeneration is stopped, aging is slowed. In this way, harmful germs and infectious pathogens cannot attack your bodies’ systems. Your body’s natural healing mechanisms repair and restore optimum health.

So Why Do You Need To Detoxify? When Is The Best Time For You To Detoxify?

This is very important! We do not live in a health care society; we live in a disease care society- meaning we do not do something until we find out we have a disease or a problem. Hence most people are detoxing wrong. We have to start promoting health to prevent disease. We think that we can cleanse twice a year and rid us of all that ails us. But in these cases what happens is that our body systems and organs that were once capable of cleaning out unwanted substances are now completely over-loaded to the point where toxic material remains inside our tissues.

Our bodies try to protect us from dangerous substances by setting it aside, surrounding it with mucous and fat so that it will not cause an imbalance or trigger an immune response (some people carry up to 15 extra pounds of mucous that harbors this waste). When we try and remove these in a short rigorous cleanse we quite often go through a healing crisis, as our bodies cannot cope with this toxic load. So rather than an elimination detox or cleanse I want you to think aboutre-nourishing a malnourished body. Rejuvenation as opposed to elimination is not just once or twice a year event but DAILY. You produce toxins and waste every second, therefore rejuvenate every day.

Stewart’s Personal Program

Essential oils are the volatile liquids in plants that contain oxygenating molecules which transport nutrients to the cells of the body. Without oxygen, nutrients cannot be assimilated, leaving us nutritionally depleted. One of these products is designed to aid in relieving constipation, bloating, indigestion and gas, as well as helping to remove toxic by-products from the body.

Start Your Day Right!

Eating slows the liver down. We want the liver to be firing on all cylinders. When you first wake up in the morning begin drinking a green juice of cruciferous vegetables. Add the essential oil lemon, which rehydrates your body from its overnight rest and cleansing. Your body continues to cleanse a least until mid-morning, so it’s important to aid this process by drinking several glasses. It’s essential to drink pure, good quality water because chlorine and fluoride destroy friendly bacteria in the digestive tract. Add a few drops of essential oils like lemon or beautifull to water, as it is absorbed much more readily and avoids the digestive tract.

The addition of essential oils may enhance the activity of the herbs in this product. It has been reported to have helped dispel parasites and enhance colon function.
