Family Of Light,
Welcome to our Health and Wellness series.
This is segment 1 of 2, focused on the elimination channels of the body. If you missed our introductory blog post, click here.
In 2007, I was diagnosed as being Gluten and Lactose intolerant. With the birth of my first child in 2010, I developed issues with my thyroid and liver and no clinician could understand why.
Over the years I’ve progressively become more and more sensitive to food. Now I follow a mostly plant, fish, chicken-based diet that is gluten and lactose-free and low in FODMAP’s.
Over the years I have been teaching myself how to appreciate my body like a messenger. I’ve realised that our bodies have an incredible potential for restoration and regeneration.
As unique beings, we all have individual responses to different medicines and therapies and we also respond uniquely to various foods so it’s important to listen to your body.
Many elements have been contributing to the toxic load on our bodies. They range from;
- Overuse of pesticides leading to soil degradation, causing depletion of nutrients in our food
- Over-processing and chemicalization of fast food
- Fluoride in water
To assist our bodies in clearing this toxic load, we need to have a basic understanding of the elimination channels.
The main Elimination Channels are the bowels, the blood, the liver, the Kidneys, the colon, the lymphatic system, the lungs, and the skin. So the first step is to improve every elimination channel in the body to help with detoxification. The body will produce energetic and metabolic waste that translates into physical levels of detoxification that need to move through the elimination channels. When the Elimination Channels are overloaded, they become inefficient and congested.
In 1904 a Russian Naturopathic Physician by the name of Elie Metchnikoff discovered that the body would recycle any toxin that it was not capable of purging. In the recycling process, the body would utilize all channels of elimination to try and get the toxic substance removed from the body.
Let’s take a closer look at elimination channels and how we can support them.
Overall I see that there are three simple things we can all do to help our elimination channels;
– Consider plant medicine.
Although these methods alone won’t solve all our issues, they are a step in the right direction.
Here are two meal ideas that will support your wellbeing journey.
Remember to stay in conscious co-creation with your body.
