I was told that the final phase of the detox is the best time to bring in colonics. I wasn’t so sure that it would make such a great video or picture for the post, so I made a unanimous decision and voted against it!
But I am happy to say I am on the last leg of the detox, and the final stage is all about the liver. So I wanted to share with you what this phase is all about.
The 2nd largest organ in the body
Just in case you are now wondering what the largest organ is, it’s the skin.
The liver is a main player and is extremely important to the body and digestive system. If you were to remove your liver and put it on a plate:
a. It could weigh up to 3kg depending on the person
b. You would not last very long
The liver is also very robust and can recover well from disease and illness if given the correct environment, like a healthy lifestyle. Very encouraging for those who enjoy the frequent jolly knees up!
Everything that goes into your mouth and is swallowed, goes into the small intestine and then onto the liver for further processing. The average person eats 25,000,000 kg of food in their life time! It’s incredible to think the body takes on such a diverse range of foods over time (pretty shabby diet with many) and processes all this. It’s not hard to see that, the greatest impact on your health would be improving your diet.
Along with processing food nutrients, the liver removes toxins from the body and helps regulate body metabolism.
With everything ingested passing through the liver (I’m sure it’s not too appreciative of the typical western lifestyle, along with fast foods, pharmaceutical drugs and alcohol), I am glad I’m giving my liver a break by changing my diet for the 6 week duration and also taking the metagenics Australia (pictured bottom).
These natural medicines support and enhance the capacity of the liver to take wastes from the blood stream, break them down and remove them via the bowels and urine.
The more I have looked into the detox and the thinking behind it, the more I’m grateful for taking it on and giving it a good go for the 6 weeks, especially as I am on the home stretch.
