Detoxification: daily activities

Although you hardly thought about it, every moment and every day your cells breathe, work and produce waste. This is the law of life: the body constantly performs an incredible number of functions in every moment of your existence.
Disposal of waste
Internal waste is constantly eliminated in order to survive the body. You probably know that if you don’t get rid of:
· Carbon dioxide, you can suffocate;
· Uric acid, can develop cardiovascular diseases and gout;
· Homocysteine, which is formed as a result of the breakdown of certain amino acids, can develop cardiovascular diseases and Alzheimer's disease;

· Toxins, there may be overload in the mechanism of inflammation;
• food debris, intestinal disease may develop, or at least constipation may occur;
· Anxiety, complications can manifest as cardiovascular and cancer diseases, as well as many other ailments.
Jesus fasted 40 days and 40 nights. Mohammed, Gandhi and Buddha also fasted.
Starving to know the essence of being is part of many spiritual traditions, and the history of this practice goes back several thousand years.

Detoxifying a healthy human body is a complex web of various activities controlled by its natural mind. Each of the trillions of cells that make up the human body is like a miniature factory that produces a wide range of products - from hormones to cartilage, hair, enzymes, proteins, serotonin, and so on. As a source of energy, each cell factory uses sugar from food and oxygen from the air. After burning sugar, slags remain, which should be removed. They enter the circulatory system and are then captured by other cells whose function is to neutralize them.
After neutralization, this waste becomes non-toxic and is eliminated from the body through the skin (with sweat), lungs (with carbon dioxide), kidneys (with urine), liver (with bile), and intestines (with feces). Disposal of toxins is as important as the production of energy. Without it, slags accumulate and become so toxic that it ends in death. Therefore, detoxification is a process that takes place continuously in the body.

The body's energy economy
In order to understand the essence of detoxification, it is necessary to get acquainted with the body's energy economy. Energy is a valuable resource for the human body as it is for the planet. The total energy expenditure of each cell is called metabolism. Each cell consumes fuel to produce energy, and then uses this energy to fulfill its function. Thus, metabolism is the energy cost of maintaining life.
Some cells perform functions that are more expensive than others - they require large amounts of energy. Like a city with a financial budget, distributed among many city services, the body has an energy budget. Energy reserves are limited, so the body must determine priorities every second in the distribution of energy capital. If he spends too much in one area, he has to, respectively, reduce costs in another. The body cannot issue energy loans; when energy reserves begin to dwindle, he must suspend his activities. You may experience fatigue or drowsiness, because when you relax and stop contracting muscles, one of the most energetically expensive activities stops.

  2. Making decisions in everyday life
    When making decisions in everyday life, the mind map helps you balance competing factors. Take as an example the situation when you decide whether or not to buy a new car. You would like to have a sufficiently comfortable and reliable car, but do not have large funds. In this regard, you may have to contact the seller of used cars - and
  3. Dwelling and other everyday matters
    Addressing such a multifaceted topic, one can hardly give universal recommendations suitable for all patients with multiple sclerosis. For many questions, one can give really relevant and useful advice only taking into account the individual conditions and circumstances of the patient's life, the severity of the disease, his physical and mental state. In some cases, certainly more appropriate.
    The daily maintenance of high combat readiness is one of the most important tasks of sailors. Not to mention its military significance, let us note the psychological — permanent, not immediately detectable — influence that steadily affects the views, interests, aspirations, relationships, qualities of the personnel. Everything matters here: the organization of the service, its conditions, the work style of the officers, discipline,
  5. Implementing a crime prevention work system in everyday practice
    Under the system of work to maintain law and order and strengthen military discipline is understood to be a set of measures and actions of officials for the prevention of crimes and misconduct, coordinated in time, strength and means, forms and methods. To develop such a system in a school environment, the fulfillment of a number of requirements is mandatory. First of all, on the basis of analysis and forecast, it is necessary
  6. Ayurvedic detoxification programs
    Compared to other cleansing practices of the Ayurvedic detoxification program, toxins are released more slowly because they use heat-treated products. But slowly does not mean ineffective. Many health problems are more successfully resolved with the help of long-term low-intensity detoxification methods. In addition, the ancient practices of Panchakarma reach
  7. Classification of methods of extracorporeal detoxification
    Above mentioned the main groups of methods of extracorporeal detoxification. In the classification of A.M. Sazonov, L.A. Ender considered in detail two of them. 1. Methods of enhancing natural detoxification systems: a) infusion therapy; b) hemodilution; c) forced diuresis. 2. Methods of artificial detoxification: a) hemodialysis; b) peritoneal dialysis; at)
  8. Correction of the detoxification process
    Purification and detoxification programs speed up the process of eliminating toxins and increase its scale. But the acceleration of its first stage (release of toxins) does not at all entail an automatic acceleration of the second stage (neutralization of toxins). Different mechanisms operate at these two stages, and therefore they must be implemented in a balanced way. To avoid discomfort at the same time
  9. How to enter detoxification mode
    The body, designed to meet all these needs, is forced to prioritize, redistribute and reorganize. Since digestion consumes so much of the energy budget, detoxification is partly delayed. All additional modern toxins, to which we are exposed, penetrate into the circulatory system and body tissues, are delayed

  12. Active detoxification methods
    1. Patient S., 19 years old, was admitted to the intensive care unit. From the anamnesis: 15 minutes before admission drank 100 ml of vinegar. Admission: BP 80/60 mm Hg, tachycardia up to 110 min, hemolysis of blood up to 500. Choose the sequence of application of detoxification methods depending on the stage of exogenous poisoning and justify your choice. 2. Patient K., 80 years old, was in the intensive care unit
    Among a large number of methods for treating various diseases involving toxicosis, intoxication, as well as in cases of poisoning, extracorporeal detoxification methods are widely used, aimed at accelerating the elimination of toxic substances from the body, protecting and maintaining the functions of organs and systems of the patient. Despite the high importance and active use in the complex
  14. Periodic detoxification
    The next most common question that arises after the program is completed is “When should I repeat the program again?” How often and how long you should do detoxification depends on how clean your diet and lifestyle remain and what results you intend to achieve. But with the modern lifestyle in large cities it is impossible to completely avoid
  15. Detoxification program: basic mechanisms
    The process of food processing is completed approximately 8 hours after it is taken. Only then can the body begin to collect debris that has accumulated not only for the current day, but also for weeks, months and years (if not decades). Due to lack of energy or time to cleanse the body, deposits of waste are formed. When food is completely digested, the start of detoxification signal is activated, and toxins
  16. Extracorporeal Detoxification Techniques
    Based on the above classification, we consider the main methods of extracorporal detoxification. Infusion therapy The task of infusion means is the binding and neutralization of toxic substances. One of the most effective means of detoxification is serum albumin, produced in the form of a 5, 10, 20% solution. It has significant oncotic pressure and contributes to
  17. Body detoxification support
    The second important factor in the success of the program is to support detoxification of the body. You can render it in different ways. INCREASING THE EFFICIENCY OF DISPOSAL OF SLAGS The success of the program largely depends on the effective removal of slags. Spending less energy on digestion, absorption, transportation and assimilation of food, the body will direct more of it to its internal
