Eat Clean,Live Toxic.. Detox Diets Just Might Not Be Enough

Eat Clean, Live Toxic…Detox Diets Just Might Not Be Enough

As a Crossfit athlete, you do EVERYTHING you can to make your body a TEMPLE to good health and super clean living, avoiding toxic food and toxic substances. Of course we all love to indulge in our vices from time to time, and I really believe for most people some indulging is super important for life balance. The most common was is by doing a DETOX Diet Link  but using a Liquid Zeolite may be a more effective way to gain an athletic edge and stay clean and clear of toxins.

But from time to time, we ALL are a little afraid that what you are doing is not enough to protect you from unseen toxic attackers, right? I mean, with the Japanese nuclear near-meltdown News Report  , the really poor air quality in our homes  Read , and the dangerous things going into our food  INFO it makes sense that we might be a little afraid of what is happening to our bodies without our knowledge.

So many people go on quests to “Detox” their bodies. Just do a search online for Detox Cleanse and you get over 6.2 million sites to wade through. But without really knowing what you are up against, how do you even begin to know what to do about it? Most people end up doing what a friend suggests or what you read in a health magazine. Here are some ideas about which cleanse programs address which problems.

It is widely known that environmental toxins get stuck in fat. So stuck in fact that your body does not want to risk releasing the fat because it will release the toxins into your body and your body does not want to deal with that. So it banishes the toxins to the fat cells to keep them from doing harm.

So many detox diets are based on that concept. The other premise is that there is a lot of bad “stuff” stuck in your poop in your intestines. Hopefully, your body is ridding itself of the toxins on a regular basis as a normal function of elimination.

Detox Cleansing is based on a system that will limit your food, promote hydration, and use of their products. They may help move water, poop, food and fat out of your body.People on the program feel lighter, cleaner and clearer thinking because they are limiting the types of foods that cause that sensation and replacing it with meal replacements and liquids that help MOVE waste out more often.

But the programs are often from 9-30 days of strict food restriction.  Once the cleanse is complete, many of the same problems return because it is not a lifestyle that is sustainable. Also, the cleanse acts primarily on the digestive system and cannot address any lingering toxins in the brain, blood, and other places in the body.

There are many others like the Ion Cleanse which uses a a process of osmosis to move toxins out based on the charges inherent in the body. Most likely, it helps, but it may be difficult to schedule treatments that keep up with the actual amount of toxins the body is fighting.

Because of most people's inability to maintain a strict detox schedule, several companies involved in the
development and manufacturing of all natural health and wellness products started studying zeolite.


Zeolite is a natural occurring mineral that is created when volcanic lava meets sea water. Its job in nature it to absorb VOC’s, Learn more, heavy metals More Info Here, and balance the body’s pH which can result in anti-viral, anti-bacterial and potentially anti-cancer environments in the body.

When using this product, it only requires taking the liquid zeolite daily. No special diet, and usually only requires additional hydration as the toxins will not get properly flushed without adequate water. The most important thing to remember when choosing is a Zeolite that is micronized (small enough to get into the bloodstream and the blood/brain barrier) and a source that is gone through the process of cleaning out the inherent "dirt" that zeolite has from being in the Earth.

One company has developed a deliciously sinful way to for everyone to benefit from the properties of Liquid Zeolite. Its called Chava Vital Chocolate. It has all the benefits of healthy dark chocolate, WITH the the powerful anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, pH balancing effects of Liquid Zeolite.
