Spring Detox

Posted on March 21, 2013 at 12:32 PM
     Well it is that time of year again, Spring.  The flowers, the warmer days (at least in some parts of the country), and the activities spring brings.  A lot of people begin the spring cleaning ritual.  They clean their house, their closets, have yard sales and just generally get rid of the old things that they no longer want or need.  This spring, why not include your body in the spring cleaning process.
     Actually, it is a good idea to cleanse the body with every season change, spring, summer, fall and winter.  Just like the principle of spring cleaning your house, the purpose of cleansing your body (or detoxing) is to get rid of the toxins that have accumulated over the winter.  Toxins that you have been breathing in from the air of your home, dust, chemicals from the off gassing from furniture and carpets, molds and mildew, and chemicals from cleaners.  Don't forget about the toxins that you have ingested through your diet, sugars, food colorings, food additives, animal fats, trans fats, and low nutrient foods.  Also, what about the viruses and bacteria that you have been exposed to throughout the winter months like the common cold and flu viruses and even bacterial infections.  What about the various parasites that you may have been exposed to? 
     My wife made me watch an episode of the Dr OZ show (not really,  I watch Dr Oz frequently even though I disagree with some of his practices, I'll save that for another day).  This particular episode dealt with parasites.  Most people do not believe that this is a wide spread problem however, it is.  One in ten Americans have some sort of internal parasite.  They come from the foods we eat, the water we drink, the environment we live and play in.  Those of us that eat raw foods are susceptible to parisites from those green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits from around the world.  If you own pet that go outdoors, if you work in a garden or on a farm, if drink well water or municipal water, you are susceptible to parasites.  A few of the most parasitic infections are:
  • Ascarids: (common name: round worm) this is a worm transmitted through the soil and in contaminated raw or undercooked foods.
  • Hook worm and thread worms: (there are a number of species) are normally transmitted through the bare feet or through drinking water.
  • Pin worms: Eggs of the pin worm can be transferred by touch from an infected person who has eggs on the fingers from scratching the affected area.
  • Tapeworms:  Transferred from raw or undercooked beef, fish, pork, or through inadvertently swallowing infested fleas or lice that live on pets.
   These are the reasons that you should do a little "Spring Cleaning" of your internal body.  I recommend a detox of the liver and intestinal tract every three months (corresponding with the seasons).  Now, don't get me wrong, cleansing the body doesn't mean that you have to drink nasty tasting smoothies or other fluids for any specified amount of time to detox the body.  Cleansing and detox does not have to be harsh or uncomfortable.  All that is needed is to follow the simple plan outlined below.  For the next seven days:
     You want to start your cleanse or detox program by stopping the toxins you are currently ingesting. 
  • Stop eating all forms of refined sugar, especially corn syrup and High Fructose corn syrup (HFCS). 
  • Stop eating fast foods, especially those foods fried in vegetable oils and foods that contain food dyes and msg.
  • Stop eating prepackaged foods, snacks, canned foods, boxed foods. 
  • Stop smoking. 
  • Stop drinking alcohol and caffeine drinks.
Start eating whole foods such as:
  • Lightly cooked vegetables and fruits.
  • Whole grains such as: brown rice, wild rice, quinoa, millet, teff, buckwheat, and kamut. 
  • Eat a small amount (4 ounces meat or 6 ounces of fish) of lean protein (thoroughly cooked) on  two of the seven days.
  • Drink natural fruit juices mixed with purified water (one half juice and one half water). 
  • Drink six to eight glasses of purified water daily.
  • Drink decaffeniated green tea.
Supplement with:
  • Probiotics (multi-stain) or with the pro-biotic S. Boulardii (great for parasitic infections).
  • Milk Thistle and Dandelion Tea to assist the liver in detox and regeneration (use for one month).
For detox of parasites supplement with:
  • Aged garlic supplement or raw garlic (two cloves daily) for 30 days.
  • Black walnut hull.
  • Wormwood
  • Black Cumin seed
  • Pau D" Arco
  • Olive Leaf
There are a number of combination products on the market for Parasite detox.  The one I use is "Para-Shield" from DaVinci Laboratories.  See my store page at  or just go to for all of your vitamin and supplement needs.
     Spring cleaning is a much need task that will make your life a more comfortable in the coming year.  It doesn't have to be a dreading task if you use common sense and a little help.
