Detoxing the body – especially liver detox and cleansing the colon and/or intestines – has become a central focus of complementary medicine. Those with specific health ailments or those wishing for improved general health or to prevent future illness can equally benefit from different options for natural detoxification of the body.
In our fat tissue, our liver, the intestines, and other organs of the body we constantly accumulate heavy metals, industrial chemicals, pharmaceutical drugs, and other potential toxins from our foods and exposure to the environment. Long-term exposure to all of those pollutants in the body can negatively effect the immune system, DNA expression, and general health. For that reason, many health practitioners recommend that we undertake slow and deliberate detoxing diets or supplementation to expel toxins safely from the body without causing negative side effects.
Home Remedies: Among other detoxing remedies, milk thistle is one herb commonly recommended for liver detox. Likewise, bentonite clay, colonics, and enemas are promoted for cleansing the colon and intestines.
Hi, I tried molybdenum after suffering from and battling candida for a long time, and after around 2 days of taking a high dose recommended by many websites I felt miraculously cured of many of my symptoms, most significantly aching and slow muscles and brainfog. It became very clear that many of my problems were caused by the acetaldehyde produced by the vast amount of dying yeast in my body. Unfortunately after taking molybdenum for over a month I began to develop new symptoms of extreme tiredness and sleepiness during the day. When I described my latest symptoms to friends and family they thought it sounded similar to anemia. I researched the effects of molybdenum and it tured out molybdenum massively depletes copper in the body and, copper defficiency causes a different form of much less common anemia in which the iron levels are normal but fail to be carried in the blood. I have struggled to cure this copper deficiency with copper supplememnts and dietery alterations, for a long time and due to anemia allowing candida to make a come back as the immune system is lowered my candida alas returned. This time I am too scared to use molybdenum again and after just trying pantethine and having some very terrible reaction to it, I am desperately seeking new more safe natural methods of excreting acetaldehyde from the body. I'm hoping there are some herbal remedies that may help. If anyone knows of any other ways of dealing with acetaldehyde, please get back to me.. And BE CAREFUL if you're taking molybdenum in large amounts. It could have been the best thing that ever happened to my health since becoming ill if I had only known to stop after a couple of weeks. Be careful.. It can be dangerous as I've learned the hard way.
