Cleansing, Balancing, and Supporting Your Body, Mind, and Spirit

My dear friends,

My husband often asks me why it is so important to take care of your colon and digestion, when he has a cold,  sinus, or any other imbalance.

A simple answer is 

your stomach is where most action happens: 

  • there are more nerves in your stomach than in your head, (your stomach is your second brain) 
  • ten times as much bacteria than cells in your whole body 
  • your digestive system constitutes 70% of the immune system 

Your intestines are folded and bent, and have 2 valves on each side.  If they're not closed properly, guess what happens to your whole body: your lungs, your blood, immune system, and so on?  (It happened to me!)

Poor lungs and esophagus have to endure the stomach acid, which is meant for the strong intestinal membranes.  Bad bacteria (Candida is one of them) proliferate other organs.  

When the colon/intestines is congested with putrefying, bad smelling food,  where bad bacteria and fungus naturally proliferate, where do you think it all goes?  

                             BLOOD  --->  EVERY-                           
                            IN YOUR

ALL THE TOXINS, BAD BACTERIA, AND FUNGUS, and even undigested food in some, end up in your brain, your eyes, hair, heart, and so on.

In fact, by a very early age, our colon's shape changes from what it should be.  It is congested, does not function properly, and presses on other organs.

So then, why take antibiotics and other medications, instead of cleansing, changing diet, and supporting internal organs, systems and your mind?  Your body is trying to burn what it does not need (INFLAMMATION).  WHY NOT HELP IT?!!

When you take a medication to suppress the inflammation, where do the toxins go?  They stay in your body, adding toxic medications insult to your body, harm and weaken your immune system, kill your intestinal flora, and clog up your receptor sites.

What do I do to feel good?    That's a better question - enough being negative.  I did not know all of this many years ago myself.  And I am still far from perfect.  

  • I always get up early - around 5:30 am.
  • I cleanse my colon by drinking home-made kefir, raw apple cider vinegar with water, rejuvelac, essential oils with water - whatever I feel like.  I have at least 3 bowel movements in the morning before everyone else wakes up. 
  • I do some yoga, and always go for a walk in the morning, and do some running with my dog
To sum up - cleanse, fresh air and movement.  I enjoy doing it, and would feel tired if I didn't.

Here are a few videos and posts I have written earlier related to staying healthy.

"The time from 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. is controlled by Vata. Its early morning cycle is responsible for moving the body’s waste products from the liver, the cells, the intestines and all other areas of the body toward the organs and systems of detoxification and elimination. Accordingly, the lymphatic system neutralizes harmful microbes, metabolic wastes, cellular debris, worn-out cells and cells damaged by disease. The rectum solidifies fecal matter and prompts the emptying of the bowel. The kidneys pass urine to the bladder, which causes urination. The skin also receives waste products that begin to surface at this time. Hence, the importance of washing or showering in the morning. The entire body is geared toward the excretion of useless waste material. About 70 percent of the body’s waste is eliminated through the lungs, 20 percent through the skin, 7 percent through urine, and 3 percent through feces. Regular and complete waste excretion from these organs is vital for the smooth and balanced functioning of all the cells in the body. Any long-term congestion in the colon, liver and kidneys turns the body into a sewer reservoir.
At the end of the Pitta period, which marks the beginning of Vata time, the body temperature begins to drop and reaches its lowest point at about 4:00 a.m. (the peak of Vata time). After that, it gradually rises again. Toward the end of Vata time, when nature begins to become more active, both body temperature and stress hormone levels (such as adrenaline and cortisol) will be sufficiently high to jumpstart the day with a thorough cleanout. To support complete and efficient waste removal, though, the body needs to be awake and in a vertical position. Gravity plays an important role in the body’s circulatory and eliminative functions. Therefore, Ayurveda recommends that we get up preferably before sunrise or at dawn, but not after sunrise."
(from Timeless Secrets Of Health And Rejuvenation, Andreas Moritz)

To produce the right amount of bile each day (1–1½ quarts), which the body requires for proper digestion of food, the liver needs plenty of water. In addition, the body uses up a lot of water to maintain normal blood volume, hydrate the cells and connective tissues, cleanse out toxins, and carry out literally thousands of other functions. Since the body cannot store water the way it stores fat, it is dependent on regular, sufficient water intake.
To maintain proper bile production and bile consistency, as well as balanced blood values, you need to drink about six to eight glasses of water each day. The most important time to drink water is right after getting up: First, drink one glass of warm water to make it easier for the kidneys to dilute and excrete urine formed during the night. This is of great importance because urine is highly concentrated in the morning; if it is not diluted properly, urinary waste products may settle in both the kidneys and the urinary bladder. Second, drink another glass of warm water to which you can add the juice of 1 slice up to ½ of a fresh lemon and 1 teaspoon of raw honey. This helps to cleanse the GI tract.
Other important times for drinking a glass of water (not chilled) are about ½ hour before and 2½ hours after meals. These are the times when a well-hydrated body would naturally signal thirst. Having enough water available at those times ensures that the blood, bile, and lymph remain sufficiently fluid to conduct their respective activities in the body. Since hunger and thirst signals use the same hormonal alert system in the body, if you happen to feel “hungry” during those times, it is more likely that you are actually running out of water. Therefore, it is best to drink a glass of room temperature or warm water first and then see whether your hunger has subsided or not.
