Look at those around you, what do you see?
Look in the mirror and tell me what do you see there?
Do you see a people/a person....
This is a bleak picture and it may seem a downer to ask you to look, acknowledge, become aware.
But, this is the first step toward a healthier you, a healthier community and a healthier world!
One of my clients seeking to undertake an upcoming Bridge toHealth On-line Seasonal Detox, asked me to explain detoxification. Prompted by his question I decided to post this blog to throw light on this subject. Starting with what will detoxification do for you and then moving onto to what is it..read on!
We DETOXIFY to HEAL!
When we take a break from richer heavier foods we are resting internal organs and allowing the body's natural defense force...IMMUNITY to take a break from cleaning up our daily indulgence, so this amazingly complex system can focus on "house "cleaning"
Regular fasting or periods eating lighter are an integral part of natural life for both animals and humans. However, we have insulated ourselves from seasonal fluctuations in available foods to the point that we fail to realize, sometime our bodies need a break from all this CONSUMPTION!
Detoxification, done regularly throughout the year and each month will restore body and soul to a cleaner lighter version of yourself, plain and simple. The clarity that comes from detoxing is the most remarkable aspect. All of my Bridge to Health Detoxers report an amazing feeling of being "high". Feeling empowered with a greater sense of purpose and higher level of energy!
We DETOXIFY to RAISE CONSCIOUSNESS
Maya Angelo said, "when we know better, we do better". This homey wisdom stated so simply is POWERFUL! The affect of knowing better is the ENLIGHTENMENT it brings! Enlightenment is the attaining of knowledge, insight and awareness. The more you have the better life is, for YOU, for YOUR FAMILY, YOUR PERSONAL COMMUNITY and the larger COMMUNITY of HUMANITY!
Think I'm getting carried away...
"Not Creating delusions is enlightenment." Bodhidharma
"Enlightenment means taking responsibility for your life" William Blake
"One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making
the darkness conscious." Carl Jung
What is detoxification?
To detoxify means to rest the body from your usual diet.
It can be a simple as skipping a meal if you tummy is out of sorts, to restricting food intake in a variety of ways.
Bridge to Health offers 4 Seasonal guided and on-line detoxes to support the development of regular detoxing as a part of a healthy lifestyle.
Detoxification is not...
This lovely passage from the Book of Isaiah sums up beautifully the reason to fast and the benefits that come to us as we dedicate ourselves to enlightenment!
Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed...
