Detoxification is something that our clinic knows inside out, literally. Many of our therapies are predicated on the idea of cleansing the body and purifying the body tissues. Adding electrolyzed ionized water is one of the most effective methods for detoxification and purification on a daily basis.
Electrolyzed ionized water (EIW) is the only water in the world that actually supports the body's normalization of pH. This takes the strain off of the buffering systems of the liver, the kidneys, the gut, the spleen and the lungs. By fully rehydrating the body at a cellular level, toxins, pollutants and chemicals that have long been stored within tissues can be removed by our pathways of elimination, often for the first time in many years. The result is clearer skin, brighter eyes, more energy, fewer chronic symptoms and hair and nails that are lustrous and shiny.
Detoxification Plan with Electrolyzed Ionized Water (EIW)
In order to receive the maximum benefits of detoxification with EIW, we recommend using it at least 21 days throughout your home. You can use this water for your plants, pets, cleaning, washing clothes, cooking, boiling, steaming and even making tea, coffee or ice cubes. In fact the micro-clustering properties of EIW will draw out the flavor of anything it is blended with. Download a guide to the many ways to use this water.
Many people may have a reaction when first drinking EIW. This is perfectly normal and the more toxic or dehydrated you are, the more likely it is that your body will react. The truth is that any time you begin a new therapy or a new healing process, your body will incorporate the change and then react.
The most common symptom you may experience is fatigue. Your body needs to use energy reserves for the healing process and to allow for change to take place. Your body will temporarily draw energy from your daily activities to put towards the changes your body is making. Sometimes people will begin to sleep 12-14 hours a night or take naps during the day.
The changes that your body is making will involve detoxification of long-standing toxic debris, releasing pathogens, reducing the load of undigested food and restoring normal function and body balance. These processes can temporarily produce uncomfortable symptoms such as headaches, loss of appetite, chills, slight fever, body aches, digestive changes, skin breakouts and nasal congestion. As elements that are toxic are being removed by the body, the body's systems will react to the presence of these toxins as though they are being handled for the first time. This is a great sign of removing years of waste from the system.
Often in the course of the healing process you will experience symptoms of illnesses and conditions that you had many years ago. This is the perfect example of Herring's Law of Cure, a basic tenet of most naturopathic physicians. It states that "All cure starts from within out, from the head down, and in reverse order as the symptoms have appeared." So you often have to retrace your steps back to the first time your body was challenged by something that it was unable to fully resolve. Those symptoms return as your body finally faces a long-standing issue that it simply adapted to instead of resolving. So to restore balance and health, your body may take you back before you can move forward.
EIW is also an amazing chelator of heavy metals because of its molecular bonding ability with the OH- molecules present in the water. This may cause you to experience a metallic taste in your mouth or a change in body odor. This will pass shortly and is a sign to you that you may want to incorporate some herbs or additional therapies to handle the heavy metal detoxification process.
This amazing water is powerful and effective in moving toxins out of the body. Although the accompanying symptoms may be uncomfortable, you have to remember that this is a good sign and that real health is just around the corner, down the lane and over the next hill. You may be tempted to try and reduce these symptoms with pain relievers, antihistamines and other over the counter preparations. Instead the best thing is to not interfere with your body's natural process and simply use natural options to manage your symptoms. Consider colonics for constipation or digestive distress, acupuncture for pain, fatigue or headaches, massage for sore muscles or lymphatic drainage for areas of swelling. We even have herbs and natural food concentrates to reduce congestion, dizziness or insomnia. Advice is just a phone call away!
