Week Three - Clean Your Garbage Disposal

A lot of the slowing down process – lack of energy, chronic pain and overweight - is not just due to the passing of years. It can be that our organs, tissues and joints are really clogged up with toxins and just need a good clear out. With detoxing, a good diet and regular exercise, your body and mind, can be like a well maintained and oiled machine, that lasts well past its normal lifespan

Think of the liver as your body's garbage disposal. It works nonstop to clean up and remove junk from your body. The liver is such an important organ that we can survive only one or two days if it shuts down. If the liver fails, your body will fail, too. Fortunately, the liver can function even when up to 75% of it is diseased or removed. This is because it has the amazing ability to create new liver tissue from healthy liver cells that still exist.

Everything you eat, drink, swallow, smoke, hormones, chemicals, bacteria, viruses, and parasites, is filtered through the liver for removal. And like a garbage disposal, the liver is vulnerable to overload. When that overload happens, the body then starts poisoning itself. This is often what's happening to people who are overweight, chronically sick with headaches and inflammatory diseases.

The Practice of Detoxification

Detoxifying your body is like moving to a new house. Before moving into your new home, you must first get rid of all the junk that has been sitting in the old house where you've been living all of your life. Likewise, before creating a healthy, fit and beautiful body, you must first clean out your old body. You start this cleaning by body detoxification. Body detoxification is the process of cleansing your body of waste and toxins. All cells in your body depend on proper nourishment and cleansing, without which they cannot function in a healthy way. Toxins will accumulate in your body if you eat poorly from things like junk food, preservatives, steroids, hormones, additives, waxes, dyes, coffee, sodas, and coloring. Junk food is a major source of body toxins.

The additives and chemicals that make junk food attractive and tasty are the same things that contaminate our internal organs. Fat from burgers and fried food is stored (as cholesterol) in our arteries and skin. If you carry excess fat, you are overloaded with toxins and more likely to develop obesity-related health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. Add to this contaminated water and air, and it's no wonder that so many people feel lethargic and lack the energy to exercise.

The Master Moves Detoxifying Juice Program is an excellent way to cleanse your body and winning at weight loss. The enzymes and nutrients that the Master Moves juices provide will clean out your liver, kidney, stomach and intestines; this will, in turn, make your bowel movements more frequent, helping you to flush out toxic waste. Drinking Master Moves fruit and vegetable juices also increases your fluid intake, helps flush your digestive system and regulate your bowel movements. Ideally, you should have at least one to two bowel movements per day and at regular intervals. Otherwise, toxins will accumulate in your intestines, contaminate your blood stream and pollute your entire body.

Your goal this week is to ease off toxic substances which can destroy the liver, slow your metabolism, interfere with your ability to burn fat, and create stress. When we think of our human garbage disposal the stomach and intestines normally come to mind. But the liver is just as important and this week we want you to focus on cleaning your liver. Like cleaning the gutters, detoxing clears the pathways that remove toxins out of the body. Here are some important facts:

  • The liver works non-stop to remove junk from your body. Everything you eat, drink, swallow or inhale is filtered through the liver which breaks down nutrients into forms that are easier for the body to use.

  • Some of the primary functions of the liver include: Storing vitamins, sugar and iron to give your body energy - Controlling the production and removal of cholesterol -Releasing bile to digest food and absorb important nutrients - Regulating the metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates - Clearing your blood of waste, drugs and other poisonous substances - Producing immune factors and removing bacteria from the bloodstream to combat infection.

  • A malfunctioning liver is one of the reasons for weight gain. As a regulator of metabolism, your liver governs the rate your body burns off calories. If your liver is in bad shape it's difficult to build muscle or burn fat and you won't necessarily reap all the benefits from eating nutritiously or exercising.

  • When you eat healthy foods containing essential nutrients, even if 75% of the liver is diseased or removed, it has the amazing ability to create new liver tissue and regenerate itself.

  • Like a garbage disposal, the liver is also vulnerable to overload and when this happens the body starts poisoning itself. This may happen to people who are overweight or who ingest excessive amounts of toxic substances.

Follow The Rules for Success

You have come a long way and your body will be reaping the rewards of your endeavor. You have established a routine by now and perhaps made some important changes in your exercise and meal schedule. During week 3 you will focus on Body Detoxification to restore optimal vitality in your body. Your desire to achieve this goal must be so strong within you that it must be your first thought when you wake in the morning, and your last thought when you go to bed at night.

Keep up with your daily workouts. Keep up with your healthy meals, even if you don't feel like it on some days. You will be able to do anything in this world you want to do, but you must be in top health and vitality. You really can have everything you want, if you restore vitality to your internal organs. During Week 3 avoid all of the following:

  • Alcohol - Alcohol not only adds sugar and calories to your system but forces the liver to work harder to eliminate the added toxins. Alcohol also prevents the liver from metabolizing fat properly.
  • Fatty meats - Fatty meats are high in saturated fat which cause the liver to work overtime to break them down. These foods also add unnecessary belly fat in and around your vital organs.
  • Non-organic milk and other dairy products - High levels of artificial hormones, antibiotics, and other toxins are found in most dairy products which cause the liver to work harder than it should. Unless milk is organic and fresh, stay away from it.
  • Junk foods - Junk food overworks the liver because it has to remove the chemicals, additives and fat found in these foods.
  • Refined carbohydrates - White bread, white flour, white pasta, white rice and white sugar are devoid of real nutritional value. Even in moderation, they force the liver to work harder than normal to filter.
  • Caffeine, tobacco and artificial sweeteners - These substances are toxic and put the liver in over-drive.
