Detox – Traditional Cleanses

teaSince your body naturally cleanses it self from 12 midnight to 12 noon, why not support the cleansing process. Setting up a simple, economical morning routine will turn your health around very quickly. Remember, it must be simple or you won’t stick to it. There are (4) things you can do every morning.

1.  Oil Pulling
2.  Drink herbal tea and raw juices
3.  Apply and inhale PTPH essential oil formulas
4. Body Movement

Getting Set Up:

Purchase your organic coconut oil or sunflower oil for oil pulling.

Makeup or buy your tea bags in advance using the herbs that suppress cravings and help to cleanse the liver, kidneys and blood. Herbs that cleanse are:  licorice root, ginger root, burdock root, cilantro leaf, red clover, stinging nettle leaf, dandelion leaf, celery seed, and chaparral leaf.

If you don’t already have a supply of PTPH essential oils look into purchasing a sample set for support during your detox/cleanse. Essential oils that offer your body/mind support as you cleanse are: Crave, Addiction, Pain, Body Balance, Detox, Headache, StomachHot Flash and Stress formulas. If you have trouble sleeping, use Deep Sleep formula. Maintain focus during the day simply by inhaling specific Alert formula. You may feel a bit weak during a cleanse so be sure to use Protection formula to support and strengthen your immune system.

Eliminating the morning stimulants: caffeine, sugars, fats and salts is always a good idea, but it might be harder than you think. Be prepared and keep it simple. Once you have your cold pressed oil, a collection of tea bags and a supply of essential oils that help with the cravings and detox symptoms, it will be very easy to stick to a cleansing routine. All you have to do is add the exercise.

Morning Routine:

oil pullingFirst thing in the morning on an empty stomach, put (1) tablespoon of organic, cold-pressed oil in your mouth and swish it through your teeth, without swallowing any of it. Swish it for 15-20 minutes. The oil acts like a magnet, pulling out all the disease-causing microorganisms that hide down in the crevices of the gums, and in the pores and tubules within the teeth. Oil Pulling is a simple and very effective treatment, that renders immediate results.

During the 15-20 minutes of swishing you have time to brew your morning cup of detox tea and apply the Path to Perfect Health Essential Oil Formulas and Skin Care. After 15-20 minutes of swishing, the oil in your mouth will become thin, milky and full of bubbles. Spit it out! ALL OF IT, and rinse your mouth several times with warm water. For extra support rinse your mouth with hydrogen peroxide. Brush your teeth and gums really good with baking soda and a couple of drops of Protection essential oil formula or a natural toothpaste.

Tips: A cleanse is a total body/mind experience. As you break out of the junk food eating patterns, emotions will be triggered. Due to the level of emotional stress, environmental toxins and negative beliefs systems floating around out there, it’s best to load your body with nutrients as you transition from the processed food products, into more of a raw food diet; ‘live’ fruits, veggies, herbs, and sprouts. Be prepared with essential oil formulas before you get started on a serious cleanse, because headaches, stomachaches, fever, nausea are common, depending on the level of toxins that are stored in your tissue. Most importantly – Don’t get discouraged when you experience the detox symptoms, because you are on the right track. Welcome these symptoms and use the opportunity to learn how to support your body/mind to heal. Path to Perfect Health products were engineered specifically to help with any uncomfortable symptoms during a detox, and to speed the healing process along.

Some of us store more toxins than others, but these days we are all over exposed to dangerous chemicals in our food, personal care and cleaning products, in the environment and our water. The body stores toxins in the connective tissue, if and when the kidneys and liver are over burdened. The fat cells rush in to save your life by wrapping around the toxin. The blood and body fluids carry the toxins as far from your vital organs as possible. A little tear is made in the connective tissue and the toxic gel ball is stuck into the tear for safe keeping. Then these amazing fiber-blast cells wrap around it. Fiber-blast cells are like elastic bands. Their main purpose is to repair tendons, but during toxic overload, many body systems work together to save your life. The longer you take in toxins by way of eating, absorbing them through your skin, inhaling them or producing them within your own system, such as stress hormones, the more toxins will be stored in your connective tissue; cellulite.

The minute you give your body a rest from consuming toxins the body gets busy with eliminating those dangerous, old, stored toxins through the skin, breath, bowls and urine. This abrupt elimination of toxins can cause headaches, hot flashes, skin rashes, bad breath, flatulence and increased mucus. These uncomfortable symptoms can instantly be relieved by loading the blood stream with “raw & live nutrition” and using specific essential oil formulas and skin care products, that were intentionally formulated in order to help the natural cleansing and healing process.

NOTE: If you have trouble finding organic produce, soak your produce in cold water. Dissolve a 1/4 tsp. of the  Himalayan sea salt in the water to hydrate the produce with 96 “live” electrical minerals. Add 3 drops of Protection essential oil formula to pull out all the toxins.soakingvegetables
