A popular subject of discussion lately is Marie Kondo’s “KonMari” philosophy about decluttering one’s home in order to increase one’s joy. A paradox of modern life is that many of us have so much excess stuff that it becomes a stressful burden. Kondo and most mental health experts assert that having a tidy, clutter-free home helps us destress and clear the mind of this unnecessary burden.
Equally important to clearing and organizing our home is cleansing and detoxifying our bodies. Much like clutter in our home can feel overwhelming and kill our joy, toxins can build up in our bodies and overload our liver and cells.
Why not take the KonMari method and apply it to our bodies? Just as Kondo advises us to eliminate anything in our home that does not “spark joy,” let’s try to eliminate as much as possible from our diet that does not bring us genuine nourishment, energy, and health. After all, our physical body is also home for our mind, consciousness, and soul. Why not keep it as tidy and clean as our house?
WHAT TO PURGE
To declutter our homes, we must purge unneeded clothes, books, documents, decorations, etc. In our bodies, this translates to reducing highly processed foods, sugary drinks and snacks, “empty” foods with no nutritional value, and meats full of steroids or antibiotics. It also means avoiding skin and body products that contain synthetic fragrances or chemical preservatives, toxins like nicotine, BPA, Teflon toxin PFOA, and pesticides, among others.
HOW TO DETOX
Fortunately, the human body has a “housecleaner” that is continuously removing toxins from our blood — the liver. In fact, the liver filters our entire blood volume every 3 minutes or so, or about 500 times per day! Don’t you wish you had a housecleaner for your home that was that efficient?
So, a great way to cleanse our bodies is to simply nourish and support our liver. SuperPure® Milk Thistle Extract has 50 years of European research and over 100 clinical studies backing it as the standard-bearer for healthy liver support and detoxification.
Another way to support deep cellular detoxification and nourish healthy liver function is with Cell Protector™ and its synergy of 20 antioxidant-rich organic sprouts, herbal extracts and superfoods.
