What Is Detoxification? Detoxification is the process of clearing toxins from the body or neutralizing or transforming them, and clearing excess mucus and congestion. Many of these toxins come from our diet, drug use, and environmental exposure, both acute and chronic. Internally, fats, especially oxidized fats and cholesterol, free radicals, and other irritating molecules act as toxins. Poor digestion, colon sluggishness and dysfunction, reduced liver function, and poor elimination through the kidneys, respiratory tract, and skin all add to increased toxicity. Detoxification involves dietary and lifestyle changes, which reduce intake of toxins and improve elimination. Avoidance of chemicals, from food or other sources, refined food, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and many drugs helps minimize the toxin load. Those lifestyle changes are a direct result of choices you make in your life. Transcendental meditation has helped me make marked improvements in not only my health and behavior but also all aspects of my life. I highly recommend you look into it. When detoxifying your colon, it is also important to incorporate probiotics in your diet to replenish your intestinal flora. Colon cleansing Bowel movements are the basis of your health. If you do not have at least one bowel movement per day, you are already walking your way toward disease. Man’s body has not changed very much in the past several thousand years… however, man’s diet has certainly changed a lot. All the refined sugar, white flour, hormone/antibiotics-filled meats we constantly ingest constitute an assault on our bodies. We are continuously violating our bodies by eating terrible foods. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. Therefore, all congestion and toxins must be removed, and it must begin with cleansing of the bowel. One of the most frequent bowel problems that people experience today is constipation. A constipated system is one in which the transition time of toxic wastes is slow. The longer the “transit time,” the longer the toxic waste matter sits in our bowel, which allows them to putrefy, ferment and possibly be reabsorbed. The longer your body is exposed to putrefying food in your intestines, the greater the risk of developing disease. Even with one bowel movement per day, you will still have at least three meals worth of waste matter putrefying in your colon at all times. Disease usually begins with a toxic bowel. Those having fewer bowel movements are harboring a potentially fertile breeding ground for serious diseases. Infrequent or poor quality bowel movements over an extended period may be very hazardous to your health.


Even a thin layer of mucoid plaque weakens the body. Nature intended mucoid plaque to be sloughed off. However, due to stress and diet, most Americans have many hardened layers of mucoid plaque. The healthy colon weighs about 4 pounds. One autopsy revealed a colon choked with 40 pounds of impacted mucoid plaque! A proper colon cleanses and detoxification program prepares your body for optimal health by removing the mucoid plaque.

Begin transitioning to a diet rich in raw fruits and vegetables with very few cooked or processed foods to help keep your digestive system free of mucoid plaque. Regular and easy elimination will be the rule, toxins will not build up and foods will be fully digested and utilized. This optimum nutrition allows rejuvenation and peak vitality. Of course, it was a process of years or decades to get the body so full of plaque and toxins, so it will be a process, although faster, to detoxify and get your body pure and back to its highest possible state of health.

Colon cleansing is a procedure, which may include the use of many different supplements, and few days of FASTING. A good intestinal cleanse will also include a parasite cleanse.


More often than not, natural colon cleansing means following a colon cleansing diet along with taking some colon cleansing supplements which may include herbs which are known to kill parasites and worms, contain digestive enzymes, contain probiotics (beneficial bacteria), contain herbs that stimulates liver, gallbladder and intestines, also psyllium husk or seeds, Cascara Sagrada, or flax seeds, or slippery elm, and others.

The person on a typical American diet holds eight meals of undigested food and waste material in the colon, while the person on the high fiber diet holds only three. The herbal colon-cleansing page and the colon health page explain in detail how you can embark on a good colon-cleansing program for yourself.


A good cleansing program should always begin by removing the waste in your colon, the last portion of your food processing chain. If you attempt to clean your liver, blood, or lymph system without first addressing a waste-filled bowel, the excreted toxins will only get recycled back into your body.


Constipation and diarrhea are also indications of foul matter in your intestines. Furthermore, the much more serious problems of cancer and immune system dysfunctions begin with a toxic bowel.

Once we truly understand that the “single greatest challenge our bodies face is the effective removal of wastes and toxins”, we will never again undermine the importance of frequent bowel movements.

As the colon becomes impacted with dry putrefactive waste, its shape and function are affected in numerous ways. It may stretch like a balloon in certain areas, or develop something called “diverticula” (pouches on the intestinal wall which may become infected), or fall down upon itself (prolapsed colon). All of these colon malformations greatly impair your large intestine’s ability to function, which in turn places severe strain on your digestive organs and glands and affects nutrient assimilation and absorption. The colon is the body’s “sewer system”, and if not treated properly can accumulate toxic poisons, which are absorbed into the bloodstream. This in turn can cause many diseases.

A standard bowel cleanse contains:

Bentonite clay and flaxseeds assist with the colon cleansing process. Bentonite is a type of edible clay that acts as a bulk laxative by absorbing water to form a gel. It binds toxins such as pesticides and helps to carry them out of the colon. Flaxseeds also absorb water and expand in the colon, allowing toxins and mucus to be removed. In addition, flaxseeds have been found to lower cholesterol levels.

As part of your colon-cleansing program, take 1 tablespoon of liquid bentonite and one tablespoon of ground flaxseeds in a glass of water first thing in the morning (wait at least 1/2 hour before eating) and before bed. Drink at least eight glasses of water per day or constipation may result. You should take the bentonite separate from medications or supplements because it may interfere with absorption. I find the best price for a high quality colon-cleaning product containing bentonite clay is here.

An important component of a colon-cleansing program is the use of probiotics to help replenish the population of friendly bacteria, which resides in your colon.



Now let’s turn to kidney cleansing. Did you know that your chances of developing a kidney stone in your lifetime are 1 in 10? More than 300,000 people in the U.S. suffer from renal failure each year and undergo dialysis or await a kidney transplant.

Your kidneys are two bean-shaped organs, each about the size of your fist. Although the kidneys are small organs by weight, they receive a huge amount – about 20% – of the blood pumped by the heart. Every day, your kidneys process about 200 quarts of blood to sift out about 2 quarts of waste products and extra water.

The actual filtering occurs in tiny units inside your kidneys called ‘nephrons’. Every kidney has about a million nephrons. In the nephron, a glomerulus–which is a tiny blood vessel or capillary–intertwines with a tiny urine-collecting tube called a tubule. A complicated chemical exchange takes place, as waste materials and water leave your blood and enter your urinary system.


The large blood supply to your kidneys enables them to do the following tasks:


Regulate the composition of your blood

Keep constant the concentrations of various ions and other important substances

Keep constant the volume of water in your body

Remove wastes from your body (urea, drugs,toxic substances)

Keep the acid/base concentration of your blood


Help regulate your blood pressure

Stimulate the production of red blood cells

Maintain your body’s calcium levels

Your kidneys receive the blood, they process the blood by removing the wastes and then return the processed blood to the body and the unwanted substances end up in the urine. Urine flows from the kidneys through the ureters into the bladder. In the bladder, the urine is stored until it is excreted from the body through the urethra.


The easiest way to do a kidney cleanse is to purchase 20 to 100 pounds of watermelon (a few huge melons), sit in a bath filed with water, eat as much of the watermelon as you can throughout the day, while regularly emptying your bladder. Using this procedure, people have dissolved big stones, and then passed small kidney stones out of their body. Note that this kidney cleanse is not suitable for diabetics.

An effective kidney cleanse is discussed in more detail here.



A massagem de drenagem linfática manual é um método de massagem altamente especializado, realizado com pressões suaves, lentas, intermitentes e relaxantes, que seguem o trajeto do sistema linfático (Awada, 2003), mobilizando a linfa até os gânglios linfáticos. (Garcia, 2004). Ela drena o líquido acumulado em determinadas regiões, melhorando a circulação e a oxigenação desse tecido, seja abdome, coxa, glúteos, etc. (Bassalobre, 2004).
A drenagem linfática pelo método Dr. Vodder utiliza pressões graduadas e constantemente alteradas, imitando as contrações próprias da musculatura lisa  dos vasos linfáticos e acompanhando o ritmo dos mesmos; objetivando diretamente o aumento do volume de linfa admitido pelos capilares linfáticos e o aumento da velocidade de seu transporte através dos vasos e ductos linfáticos.
A linfa desempenha um importante papel no transporte de algumas substâncias, ajuda a eliminar o excesso de líquido e produtos que deixaram a corrente sangüínea, tendo ação imunológica, isto é, a linfa é enriquecida por anticorpos, funcionando como uma verdadeira “lixeira” do organismo. Quando o sistema circulatório e/ou linfático não cumpre corretamente suas funções, o corpo fica sobrecarregado por excesso de líquido que não consegue absorver. Na maioria dos casos, esse fenômeno se traduz por sintomas como celulite, retenção de líquidos, peso nas pernas e aparecimento de edema (inchaço), mais conhecido como linfedema. (Bassalobre, 2004).
O surgimento de edema está ligado à circulação linfática, seja diretamente em conseqüência do aumento do aporte líquido ou, indiretamente, em conseqüência de uma patologia linfática específica.

Em pessoas sedentárias ou com uma alimentação muito tóxica, a linfa é mais espessa e o fluxo se torna mais lento, levando a formação de edemas, celulites e até uma baixa imunológica geral.

As manobras de drenagem linfática exercem influência sobre algumas estruturas e funções biológicas, direta e indiretamente, tais como estimula a contração da musculatura lisa dos vasos linfáticos, aumenta a velocidade de transporte da linfa, aumenta a capacidade de processamento da linfa no interior dos gânglios linfáticos, melhora as condições de absorção intestinal, melhora a atuação do sistema nervoso vegetativo, aumenta a captação de oxigênio pelos tecidos, fornece a nutrição celular pelo maior aporte sangüíneo, fornece a eliminação dos produtos finais resultantes do metabolismo tecidual, aumenta a absorção dos nutrientes e princípios ativos através do trato digestivo, aumenta a quantidade de líquidos a serem eliminados.(Winter, 1973).

Em conseqüência de todos estes fenômenos temos o aumento do grau de hidratação e nutrição da célula, aumento da velocidade de cicatrização de ferimentos pelo aumento da vascularização arterial e venosa, aumento da capacidade de absorção de hematomas e equimoses, melhora do retorno de sensibilidade em cirurgias plásticas, diminuição de retenção de líquido nos tecidos prevenindo a formação de celulites, produz relaxamento. (Bassalobre, 2004).

A drenagem linfática manual é indicada em linfedema primário e secundário, celulite, linfedema de braço posterior a mastectomia, edema pós-operatório e pós- traumáticos, problemas circulatórios, pós-cirurgia plástica, pós-lipoaspiração, sinusite, rinite e otite, enxertos, varizes e pernas cansadas, edemas da gravidez e síndrome pré-menstrual, enxaquecas, artrose, artrite e gota, tendinite;tratamento de acne e rosácea, envelhecimento cutâneo.(Winter, 1973; Guirro, 2000)

As contra-indicações são trombose venosa profunda, tromboflebites, erisipela,infecção aguda, neoplasias malignas e diagnosticadas em atividade, insuficiência cardíaca congestiva (descompensada), história de hipertensão arterial e sintomas vagotômicos, asma brônquica de evolução grave e crises freqüentes, arteriosclerose em processo avançado, hipertireoidismo.(Winter, 1973; Guirro, 2000).


Germes, Fungos e Micróbios à Espreita

por Patricia Campos Mello,

Abro o The New York Times e descubro que um certo Simon Sassoon de Nova York está ganhando a maior grana com o seguinte produto: um desinfetante de maçanetas de portas de banheiro. Trata-se de um aparelhinho que fica borrifando desinfetante hospitalar na maçaneta. Aparentemente, as pessoas morrem de nojo de encostar em maçaneta de porta de banheiro em restaurante, escola, escritório, etc.

Outro produto muito vendido, diz o diário, é uma alça portátil, para que você não precise encostar naquelas barras do metrô ou ônibus. Naquelas onde TODO mundo segura, eca….

Mas o meu favorito é um chamado Excuse Me – trata-se de uma bandeira com uma hastezinha, que a pessoa fixa na cintura. Se alguma pessoa se aproxima demais de você, leva uma bandeirada na cara – “O Excuse Me cria um espaço de 90 centímetros entre você e um possível espirro”, esclareceu ao NYT a criadora do artefato, Emily Beck. “O produto permite que você não tenha que encostar em ninguém e nem falar com ninguém em Nova York.” Presente perfeito para misantropos e hipocondríacos – ou talvez para altruístas que têm mau hálito e não querem que a humanidade sofra.

Os Estados Unidos são uma nação com fobia de micróbios. Trata-se de uma enorme aglomeração de Monks (aquele detetive obsessivo-compulsivo, que passa a vida limpando tudo, da série homônima de TV a cabo). Eles já têm teoria de conspiração para tudo, os hackers das urnas eletrônicas (culparam até o Chávez), o assassino do John Kennedy, a mídia sionista….e também os fungos, vírus e bactérias terroristas…. estão todos à espreita….os germes e o bin Laden querem te pegar…..

Eu já tinha vivido essa histeria anti-germes antes. Morei com uma colega de quarto da Pensilvânia que tinha verdadeiro pânico de infecções variadas. Ela desinfetava tudo a cada cinco minutos. Depois do 11 de setembro, quando houve a ameaça de antraz, eu fiquei encarregada de abrir toda a correspondência por meses – ela tinha certeza de que todas as cartas estavam contaminadas.

E ela me contou – depois descubro que é bastante comum por aqui, segundo o NYT –
que enrolava o dedo em papel higiênico antes de apertar a descarga.

Veio-me à cabeça uma palavra interessante: anal retentive, ou seja, indivíduo que tem retenção anal. Eh, parece um pouco rude, mas as pessoas falam isso aqui, normalmente: Fulano, você é anal! A origem é de fato psicanalítica. Segundo o Webster, uma pessoa anal tem fixação na fase anal, e, como conseqüência, é metódica, com mania de limpeza, compulsiva.

Pois é, Excuse Me pra esse pessoal com retenção.


Germophobia is Out of Control

I think we’ve gone a little too far when we feel the need to have our doorknobs automatically sanitized every 15 minutes to feel clean.

SIMON SASSOON saw the future in a dream. Mr. Sassoon, a former watch designer, dreamed he was standing in a women’s public restroom, which his hygiene-conscious girlfriend had just left. Attached to the door above the knob was a white plastic box.

As Mr. Sassoon’s dream self watched, the box made a gushing sound. Out from the bottom sprayed a fine dry mist, which bathed the metal knob and killed every germ on it.

The girlfriend is now an ex, but two years and $250,000 of investment capital later, the HYSO, an acronym for Cantonese words meaning “happy hands,” is starting to roll off production lines. Mr. Sassoon, 49, a nephew of the hairdresser Vidal Sassoon, is betting there is a vast and rapidly expanding market for a $60 device that sprays a hospital-grade disinfectant on doorknobs every 15 minutes.


I sure hope this spray dries quickly because I’m not real keen on touching wet doorknobs, regardless of what the fluid is.

For this and other crazy sanitary gadgets, go here . . .

The thought of having cancer can be scary. But what exactly is cancer? And what does it do?

Cancer refers to any one of a large number of diseases characterized by the development of abnormal cells that divide uncontrollably and have the ability to infiltrate and destroy normal body tissue. Cancer can spread its abnormal cells throughout your body.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be frightening. But understanding what’s going on inside your body can help you be aware of what’s causing your feelings of anxiety. Knowing more about cancer may also help you feel more in control of your disease.

What causes cancer?

Cancer is caused by damage (mutations) in your DNA. Your DNA is like a set of instructions for your cells, telling them how to grow and divide. When a mutation occurs in your DNA, normal cells will repair the mutation or simply die. In cancer, your cells continue living with this mutation. As a result, they grow and divide in chaotic fashion.

Mutations in your DNA can be caused by:

Your own habits.
Certain lifestyle choices are known to cause cancer. Smoking, drinking more than one drink a day (for women) or two drinks a day (for men), being overweight, damage to skin unprotected by sunscreen, and unsafe sexual behaviors can lead to the mutations that cause cancer. You can break these habits to lower your risk of cancer — though some habits are easier to break than others.

Your environment.
The environment around you may contain harmful chemicals that can cause mutations in your genes. Even if you don’t smoke, you might breathe secondhand smoke if you go places where people are smoking or you live with someone who smokes. Chemicals in your home or work environment, such as asbestos and benzene, can also cause cancer.

Your family history.
Some mutations in your DNA can be traced back to your parents. If cancer is common in your family, it’s possible that mutations are being passed from one generation to the next. You might be a candidate for genetic screening to see whether you have mutations that might increase your risk of cancer. Keep in mind that having an inherited genetic mutation doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get cancer.

Chronic conditions.
Some chronic health conditions, such as ulcerative colitis, can develop into cancer. Talk to your doctor about your risk.

Much is still unknown about cancer. Some people with many risk factors don’t develop cancer, and some people with no apparent risk factors develop cancer nonetheless.

How does cancer grow?

Cancer cells grow in an uncontrolled manner. One malignant cell becomes two, two become four, four become eight, and so on, until a mass of cells (a tumor) is created. The tumor interferes with the normal functioning of healthy tissue and can spread to other parts of your body.

Not all tumors are cancerous, and not all cancers form tumors. For example, leukemia is a cancer that involves blood, bone marrow, the lymphatic system and the spleen but doesn’t form a single mass or tumor.

Cancer invades and destroys normal tissue. It can also produce chemicals that interfere with body functions. For instance, some lung cancers secrete chemicals that alter the levels of calcium in your blood, affecting nerves and muscles and causing weakness and dizziness.

Cancer can also spread (metastasize) and invade healthy tissue in other areas of your body. Cancer can take years to develop. By the time a cancerous mass is detected, it’s likely that 100 million to 1 billion cancer cells are present, and the original cancer cell may have been dividing for five years or more.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has a different approach to treating cancer patients compared to modern medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine is to strengthen and build a patient’s Qi (energy) to fight the cancer.
Acupuncture has also proved to be effective in treating cancer patients side effect symptoms from radiation therapy and chemotherapy.


What is the stress response?

Often referred to as the “fight-or-flight” reaction, the stress response occurs automatically when you feel threatened. Your pituitary gland, located at the base of your brain, responds to a perceived threat by stepping up its release of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), which signals other glands to produce additional hormones. When the pituitary sends out a burst of ACTH, it’s like an alarm system going off deep in your brain. This alarm tells your adrenal glands, situated atop your kidneys, to release a flood of stress hormones into your bloodstream. These hormones — including cortisol and adrenaline — focus your concentration, speed your reaction time, and increase your strength and agility.

How stress affects your body

After you’ve fought, fled or otherwise escaped your stressful situation, the levels of cortisol and adrenaline in your bloodstream decline. As a result, your heart rate and blood pressure return to normal and your digestion and metabolism resume a regular pace. But if stressful situations pile up one after another, your body has no chance to recover. This long-term activation of the stress-response system can disrupt almost all your body’s processes, increasing your risk of obesity, insomnia, digestive complaints, heart disease and depression.

                          Digestive system. It’s common to have a stomachache or diarrhea when you’re stressed. This happens because stress hormones slow the release of stomach acid and the emptying of the stomach. The same hormones also stimulate the colon, which speeds the passage of its contents. Chronic stress can also lead to continuously high levels of cortisol. This hormone can increase appetite and cause weight gain.

                          Immune system. Chronic stress tends to dampen your immune system, making you more susceptible to colds and other infections. Typically, your immune system responds to infection by releasing several substances that cause inflammation. In response, the adrenal glands produce cortisol, which switches off the immune and inflammatory responses once the infection is cleared. However, prolonged stress keeps your cortisol levels continuously elevated, so your immune system remains suppressed.

In some cases, stress can have the opposite effect, making your immune system overactive. The result is an increased risk of autoimmune diseases, in which your immune system attacks your body’s own cells. Stress can also worsen the symptoms of autoimmune diseases. For example, stress is one of the triggers for the sporadic flare-ups of symptoms in lupus.

                          Nervous system. If your fight-or-flight response never shuts off, stress hormones produce persistent feelings of anxiety, helplessness and impending doom. Oversensitivity to stress has been linked with severe depression, possibly because depressed people have a harder time adapting to the negative effects of cortisol. The byproducts of cortisol act as sedatives, which contribute to the overall feeling of depression. Excessive amounts of cortisol can cause sleep disturbances, loss of sex drive and loss of appetite.

                          Cardiovascular system. High levels of cortisol can also raise your heart rate and increase your blood pressure and blood lipid (cholesterol and triglyceride) levels. These are risk factors for both heart attacks and strokes. Cortisol levels also appear to play a role in the accumulation of abdominal fat, which gives some people an “apple” shape. People with apple body shapes have a higher risk of heart disease and diabetes than do people with “pear” body shapes, where weight is more concentrated in the hips.

                          Other systems. Stress worsens many skin conditions — such as psoriasis, eczema, hives and acne — and can be a trigger for asthma attacks.

Individual reactions to stress

Your reaction to a specific stressor is different from anyone else’s. Some people are naturally laid-back about almost everything, while others react strongly at the slightest hint of stress — and most fall somewhere between those extremes. Genetic variations may partly explain the differences. The genes that control the stress response keep most people on a fairly even keel, only occasionally priming the body for fight or flight. Overactive or underactive stress responses may stem from slight differences in these genes.

Life experiences may increase your sensitivity to stress as well. Strong stress reactions sometimes can be traced to early environmental factors. People who were exposed to extreme stress as children tend to be particularly vulnerable to stress as adults.

Reducing the effects of stress

Stress develops when the demands in your life exceed your ability to cope with them. It follows, then, that you can manage stress by:

                          Changing your environment so that the demands aren’t so high

                          Learning how to better cope with the demands in your environment

                          Doing both

Here are some helpful techniques:

                          Look after your body. To handle stress, your body requires a healthy diet and adequate rest. Exercise also helps, by distracting you from stressful events and releasing your nervous energy.

                          Learn to relax. It’s the polar opposite of the stress response. Deep-breathing exercises may put you in a relaxed state. Follow these steps:

  1. Inhale through your nose to a count of 10. As you inhale, your upper abdomen should rise — not your chest.
  2. Exhale slowly and completely, to a count of 10.
  3. Repeat five to 10 times. Try to do this several times every day, even when you’re not feeling stressed.

If you have persistent trouble relaxing, consider taking up meditation or studying yoga or tai chi, Eastern disciplines said to focus your mind, calm your anxieties and release your physical tension. Therapeutic massage may also loosen taut muscles and calm frazzled nerves. Acupuncture can unblock the energy channel of the body and help the body to relax


Depression is a disorder that affects your thoughts, moods, feelings, behavior and physical health. People used to think it was “all in your head” and that if you really tried, you could “pull yourself out of it.” Doctors now know that depression is not a weakness, and you can’t treat it on your own. It’s a medical disorder with a biological or chemical basis.

Sometimes, a stressful life event triggers depression. Other times depression seems to occur spontaneously with no identifiable specific cause. Whatever the cause, depression is much more than grieving or a bout of the blues.

Depression may occur only once in a person’s life. Often, however, it occurs as repeated episodes over a lifetime, with periods free of depression in between. Or it may be a chronic condition, requiring ongoing treatment over a lifetime. The disorder affects more than 18 million Americans of all ages and races.

Until now, modern medicine could offer people with depression only a pill or the prospect of talking it out, sometimes for years. Soon, though, doctors may offer an alternative – the 5,000 year-old Chinese art of Acupuncture.
In a recent University of Arizona study, clinically depressed women received eight weeks of acupuncture, in which practitioners gently pressed needles into specific body points to correct imbalances believed to trigger illness. The results: After getting treatments aimed at relieving depression, about two-thirds were cured of the condition, a rate similar to that achieved with antidepressants and psychotherapy.
(Researchers ruled out the placebo effect by giving one group acupuncture at points believed to be unrelated to depression.)
Although the study, which was funded by the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Alternative Medicine, is preliminary, author John Allen, Ph.D., believes acupuncture eventually may benefit people for whom other treatments fail. Unlike antidepressant drugs, for instance, acupuncture has no side effects. And Allen predicts that it may offer the best way yet to forestall future episodes of depression. That’s a significant worry, since people who’ve suffered one bout of depression have a 50 percent chance of enduring another.

The TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) model of the body is a culturally based philosophy of how the human body works.

The elements of the TCM model of the body are the Fundamental Substances; Qi, Blood, Jing (Essence), Shen (Mind) that nourish and protect the Zang-Fu organs; and the meridians (jing-luo) which connect and unify the body. Every diagnosis is a “Pattern of disharmony” that affects one or more organs (such as “Spleen Qi Deficiency” or “Liver Fire Blazing” or “Invasion of the Stomach by Cold”), and every treatment is centered on correcting the disharmony.

Unlike the Western anatomical model which divides the physical body into parts, the Chinese model is more concerned with function. Thus, the TCM Spleen is not a specific piece of flesh, but an aspect of function related to transformation and transportation within the body, and of the mental functions of thinking and studying. Indeed, the San Jiao or Triple Burner has no anatomical correspondent at all, and is completely a functional entity.

Chinese medicine is a coherent and independent system of thought, it has been developed over two millennia. Based on ancient texts, it is the results of a continuous process of critical thinking, as well as extensive clinical observation and testing. It represents a thorough formulation and reformulation of material by respected clinicians and theoreticians. It is rooted in the philosophy, disease is caused by an unhealthy relationship with nature and that treatment lies in establishing balance with nature, Yin/Yang and five elements.

Traditional Chinese medicine is holistic, based on the idea that no single part of the body can be understood except in its relation to the whole. A symptom, therefore, is not traced back to a cause, but is looked at as a part of a totality. If a person has a symptom, Chinese medicine wants to know how the symptom fits into the patient’s entire bodily pattern. A person who is well, or “in harmony”, has no distressing symptoms and expresses mental, physical, and spiritual balance. When that person is ill, the symptom is only one part of a complete bodily imbalance that can be seen in other aspects of his or her life and behavior. Understanding that overall pattern with the symptom as part of it, is the challenge of Chinese medicine.

People all over the world are using TCM including acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.

What is foot reflexology?

Reflexology is an ancient natural therapy which utilizes energy zones on the hands and feet to provide relief for a variety of illnesses as well as to energize the body system. It has been in practice in China for thousands of years and till today, remains a popular and common therapy in China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and Thailand and is also increasingly popular in other parts of the world including Europe, Australia and USA.

foot reflexology

The Chinese believe every meridian point in our foot reflex to a part of our body system


How does foot detoxification work?

It is widely known that the waste products(toxins) accumulated from the food we eat and the polluted air we breathe in contribute to many health problems to our body. When the waste products in our body reaches an excessive level, they can cause fatigue, lethargy, restlessness or other health problems.

These health problems are virtually undetectable and the doctor will continue to give you a clean bill of health despite you knowing somewhere, somehow, things are not quite right with your body. Afterall, who knows your body better, yourself or the wise doctor who probably think that you are imagining things!

There are various methods to clear the build up of these waste products(toxins) in our body; including fasting, dieting, sweat out in a sauna, regular physical exercise or even colon-cleansing. Some of these detox and cleansing methods are costly, some are difficult to maintain and some are plain dangerous!

Detoxification patches are totally natural for the body, safe, easy to use and provide rapid detox.

These tree extract plaster helps to cleanse your body’s waste products in an easy, trouble-free and painless way. Just wrap one sheet of plaster on the sole of your foot before going to bed, and allow it to work while you are asleep. The color of the sheet will change according to the condition of your health. Those with health problems will notice the sheets are initially darker the following morning. With regular use, the sheets will progressively get lighter and lighter, indicating a steady improvement in your health. The patch can also be applied to specific problems on localised parts of the body, such as the wrist, knee, shoulder, ankle, and groin.

rapid detox through the night

Apply a foot detox patch to each foot before sleeping every night

The product works on the principle that tree trunks, which are composed of numerous tiny tubes, are able to draw water and nutrients through the roots and up to all other parts of the tree. Expanding on Reflexology Concept, that different parts of the foot are connected to every other parts of our body, the flexi-patch are applied on the sole to help dispel wastes products from the body, very much alike the way the tree trunk operates.

See with your own eyes how much yucky toxins are expelled each morning!

Why does foot reflexology and detoxification
work so well together

Traditionally, the Chinese and Japanese have known about the detoxification effect of certain tree extracts and the meridian pressure points of relexology and accupressure. Combined with other herbs and when applied to the sole of the foot, it has been found to vastly improve circulation and promote detoxification of the human body leading to general better health and well-being. This combination of toxin cleansing and reflexology has made this formula a favourite among Asians, young and old, healthy and weak.

Today, this beneficial formula is packed in plaster pack using modern, hygiene packing methods and sold worldwide.

World’s easiest – and safest – detoxification method!

Detoxification is not a new health concept. In fact, it has been around for a long, long time. Popular detox methods in modern time include the suana, dieting, colon cleansing, detoxification pills and solutions etc.

However, non of these detoxification methods are as natural, easy, quick, cost effective, safe and effective as detoxification foot patches. In fact, some of these artificial detox methods are even downright dangerous and had even accounted for a death or two.

If you believe in the beneficial health effect of detox, use Nutriwork foot patches. Do not play with your own or family’s health.
