Cleansing for Optimal Health*
by Dr. Gaetano A. Morello, BSc., N.D.
Feeling sluggish? Weighed down?
Daily environmental toxins originate from the air, water, and even your food. Your liver, lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, and skin work to eliminate toxins. However, these toxins can be a challenge to your body's built-in detoxification systems.
Where do toxins come from? Unfortunately, toxins are everywhere. Even your body and the bacteria in your intestines naturally produce toxins known as free radicals. Other common sources include:
Undoubtedly, the liver is the workhorse of your body's detoxification system. On a constant basis, your liver performs three essential cleansing functions:
1. Filtering Blood - Every minute nearly two quarts of blood pass through your liver for detoxification.
2.Secreting Bile - Every day a healthy liver produces bile that carries toxins and cholesterol to the intestines to be absorbed by fiber. Without sufficient fiber in your diet, many toxins are reabsorbed into the bloodstream. Fiber also promotes the transit of waste through your intestines and regular bowel movements.
3.Neutralizing Toxins - Through a complexity of processes, your liver neutralizes toxins directly or converts into:
a) fat soluble forms to be eliminated through the bowel, or
b) water soluble forms to pass through the kidneys for urine excretion.
While your liver and other organs do a decent job of cleansing your body, Nature's Way Thisilyn® Cleanse with Herbal Digestive Sweep™ can add extra protection from environmental impurities.*
A Little Help from the Outside: Thisilyn® Cleanse*
A good cleanse should include supplements that work with your body to promote its natural detoxifying ability. It's the difference between effectively helping your body to detoxify and forcing your body to do so.
Thisilyn Cleanse with Herbal Digestive Sweep uses natural ingredients to provide a thorough, whole body internal cleanse.* The kit consists of three formulas that are uniquely balanced to support the following three phases:
PHASE I: WHOLE BODY DETOX
This formula provides Thisilyn® milk thistle, a popular supplement for supporting liver function and health.* It also contains artichoke, turmeric, dandelion and two proprietary herbal blends to support multiple cleansing systems including your liver, gallbladder, lymphatic system, skin, urinary tract, and bloodstream.* Whole Body Detox helps move toxins to your intestines for Phase II.*
PHASE II: 6-FIBER BLEND
This synergistic blend combines psyllium husk, oat bran, guar gum, LingaMax™ flaxseed fiber, grapefruit pectin and FOS. It is easily dispersed throughout the intestine where it captures toxins and other impurities. The FOS also provides a powerful prebiotic boost to support the maintenance of healthy intestinal microflora.*
PHASE III: HERBAL DIGESTIVE SWEEP
The final step of the cleanse promotes the elimination of toxins from the body.* The Herbal Digestive Sweep utilizes Cascara sagrada to effectively stimulate muscles in the intestines, which encourages healthy bowel elimination.*
After completing the Thisilyn Cleanse kit, two daily formulas can help you maintain the healthy benefits. A probiotic supplement like Flora Biotic Plus can help replenish healthy microflora to your intestines and maintain overall digestive health.* This super-potent, once-daily formula provides 35 billion active cultures and 14 different probiotic strains to promote microflora growth and intestinal integrity.*
For continued detoxification support between cleansing kits, use the Thisilyn® Daily Cleanse formula.* It combines the liver supportive herbals and the six-fiber blend from the kit into an effective supplement for everyday use.* Also, if you're concerned about not getting enough cleansing fiber in your diet, this is the ideal formula for you.
In addition to cleansing periodically, you can make other lifestyle choices to help lessen your exposure to toxins. Those include: not smoking, avoiding excessive medications, limiting alcohol consumption, eating organic foods, and exercising regularly. It's the smart way to purify, rejuvenate, and energize your health!
