Today, we live in an environment that is just full of harmful chemicals and toxins that can only damage our body. Also, eating the unhealthy diet, that most of us follow, just makes things worse.
This means that our liver and colon can easily get blocked so they will not be able to eliminate the toxins from the body which will start accumulating and cause various problems.
Toxins come in 2 types – fat and water soluble. Our body eliminates the water-soluble toxins through urine and sweat. However, it is more complicated with fat-soluble toxins.
To be able to eliminate them, these toxins need to be turner to water-soluble toxins. This is the job of the liver. Fat-soluble toxins include food additives, pollutants, preservatives, pesticides, plastics, and heavy metals.
The liver is responsible to transform these toxins into lighter toxins which can then be eliminated.
Well, the liver is an organ which had many functions that it performs every day, so it can’t always turn the fat-soluble to water-soluble toxins. In other words, they may start accumulating in the body.
When there is a blockage of the liver and digestive tract, these two are not able to perform their function. So, the toxic fats pass through the digestive system into the small intestine, where small villi sweep them.
GALT or the body’s Gut Associated Lymphatic System which surrounds the GI tract and is very important for the removal of toxins supports this process. If the villi and GALT are performing their functions well, the toxins and chemicals will be eliminated.
However, our diet and the air pollution can cause blockage in the GALT system and villi, which leads to accumulation of toxins in the tissues.
The main symptoms of congested GALT include bloating, swelling in the breasts, hands and feet, irregular bowel movements, skin irritation, joint stiffness and hypersensitivity.
Add the dry villi to these problems and there you got- a disaster! When the GI tract produces enough mucus, we have a normal stool and we can eliminate all the toxins and chemicals.
Excess mucus causes diarrhea. If you have excess mucus in your stool, make sure to address the problem right away to prevent bigger problems.
The villi are extremely important for the process of elimination. In order to function properly, they should not be too dry or too wet.
However, their function can be disrupted by various factors including stress, coffee, unhealthy diet, hyperacidity, and additives. Proper bile production is crucial for the elimination process as well.
Our liver produces the bile, and it is responsible for processing fats, acting as the immune system of the GI tract.
High level of toxins will cause congested liver that will allow fat-soluble toxins into the bloodstream.
Eventually, they will find their way to your fat cells, accumulate there and cause various serious problems. These toxins are life-threatening and they can even reach the brain.
