Why Should You Cleanse and Detoxify Your Body? [Infographic]

Why You Should Cleanse and Detoxify Your Body?
Infographic from Purify Your Body
Cleansing and detoxification programs are now being talked about, recommended or offered by just about every health and wellness practitioner - at local health centers and spas as well as online.

Entire online communities now exist around detoxification.  Hundreds, even thousands, of individuals sign up for detox programs offered by famous online doctors and weight loss gurus such as Dr. Sara Gottfried and Jon Gabriel.  The internet is teeming with detoxification and cleansing protocols, and the number of books written on the subject are numerous.

Still some individuals remain skeptic. Maybe they associate detoxing or cleansing with some alternative medicine woo-woo.  Or they point out that their parents and grandparents didn't have to undertake formal or structured detox protocols or cleanses.  Or they argue that the body detoxes naturally.

Well, yes, the body has detoxification pathways but those pathways can become overburdened.  And, yes, our ancestors may have not done formal detox programs but they lived in significantly less toxic environments. As for medical woo, scientific research and studies indicates that healthy detoxification pathways in the body are an integral component of optimal health.

This infographic entitled "Why Should You Cleanse and Detoxify Your Body?" illustrates major sources of toxins in our current environment, why its important to cleans, which organs and biological systems filter and eliminate toxins from our bodies, and a few of the benefits of detoxifying and cleansing the body.

15 Top Anti-Inflammatory Foods -
Infographic from Dr. Josh Axe
Many health professionals agree that chronic, body-wide inflammation affects every aspect of health and may even contribute to or cause various illnesses, diseases and medical conditions.  In fact, studies have shown that certain chronic diseases (such as atherosclerosis, diabetes and Alzheimer's) have an inflammatory component.

To reduce inflammation in the body, natural medicine doctors often recommend eating an anti-inflammatory diet.  An anti-inflammatory diet generally consists of eating 7-9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, eating 3-5 servings of cruciferous vegetables and alliums (garlic, onions, leeks) per week, consuming adequate amounts of fiber, consuming foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and other healthy fats, and avoiding processed foods and refined sugars.

This infographic entitled "Top 15 Anti-Inflammatory Foods" illustrates foods and herbs that are considered to be excellent at combating inflammation and also includes a brief explanation of the key vitamin and mineral content of each of these foods and herbs:

Green Leafy Vegetables
Bok Choy
Bone Broth
Coconut Oil
Chia Seeds
Flax Seeds (Flaxseed Meal)

A Guide to Candida [Infographic]

A Guide to Candida - Infographic
from the
Candida Albicans is a yeast that normally lives in the body in small numbers. It is estimated that 70% of people have Candida in their intestines, and as many as one in seven people have a Candida overgrowth.

Candida overgrowth is thought to be linked to many metabolic, digestive, mental, emotional and physical symptoms. Symptoms include weight gain and obesity, increased belly fat, indigestion, acid reflux, bloating, gas, hypoglycemia, thyroid disfunction, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, chronic fatigue, sinus inflammation, allergies, chronic joint pain, frequent infections, and ear, rectal and vaginal itching.

Tests for Candida overgrowth include a simple blood test to check for IgG, IgA and IgM antibodies, stool test, the urine Organix Dysbiosis test and the spit test.

Natural remedies and treatments for Candida yeast overgrowth include following a diet that restricts sugar, gluten, starches and certain other foods, taking sufficient number of high-quality probiotics from fermented foods and in supplement form, and using various herbal and other natural antifungals - such as raw garlic, olive leaf, oregano oil, grapefruit seed extract, caprylic acid, and apple cider vinegar.

This comprehensive infographic from The Candida Store entitled "A Guide to Candida" covers the main information that an individual who suspects Candida overgrowth should know - including the causes, diagnosis and treatment.

Probiotics and Good Gut Health [Infographic]

Probiotics and Good Gut Health - Infographic from Houston Methodist Leading Medicine
According to recent research and scientific reports, it is now thought that the bacteria that resides in our intestines may actually strongly impact various aspects of our health.

Some scientific researchers, medical doctors and other healthcare professionals have even stated that many chronic diseases, illness and and medical conditions may have their origins in the status of the gut - in other words, an impaired digestive system contributes or leads to a variety of chronic health problems.

It is believed that an impaired digestive system is often the result of an imbalance in the gut bacteria - "bad" (or pathogenic) bacteria outnumbering the "good" (or beneficial) bacteria.

To maintain a healthy gut bacteria balance, many healthcare professionals now recommend eating a diet rich in probiotic and prebiotic foods and probiotic supplementation.

Probiotic and prebiotic foods are thought to nurture and even heal the digestive system.

This infographic entitled "Probiotics and Good Gut Health" sheds some light on the nature of bacteria and where they are found on the body as well as probiotics and the types of medical issues that probiotics can help to treat.

The infographic also gives some specific data on Clostridium Difficile (C. Diff), a particularly aggressive and difficult to treat superbug that is quickly becoming one of our most urgent bacterial threats.
