Every time i see the word "detox" on a blog or facebook, i gag a little bit.
It's usually promoting some kind of product to "flush your liver," and at other times to urge a vegetarian diet. A lot of sincere and wanna-be-helpful people have fallen for the BS, and encourage it. It's still BS.
The body is DESIGNED to filter and discard toxins. What it has trouble dealing with, it sequesters instead. Your conscious part of the process is primarily to AVOID CONSUMING TOXINS IN THE FIRST PLACE. Subsequently, when successful dieting may set some free, your power lies in knowing that your nasty symptoms come from the released substance and not that LCing itself is at fault for making you feel bad.
Like candida die-off symptoms, it can happen. Does this mean we need to increase our sugar intake, so the candida can be fat and happy again? ...Hardly.
Analogous to "new vegan high," when you change your input, some of the results are not direct cause-and-affect. Do you REALLY want to make your liver happy? (...'Cause it's actually pretty easy and pleasant.) Lay off the omega-6 oils. Avoid fructose and be careful with the alcohol. Eat plenty of nice clean saturated fats. Go for the organic and grassfed end of the "healthy foods" spectrum.
Apparently, traditional cultures have been cognizant of the importance of the liver for a long time -- only the modern world has come to neglect it so horribly. What i see when i go out in public ... right and left, people with fatty livers hanging out from under their ribcages, pushing their subcutaneous fat stores out even further. Not a healthy sight, and it's ALL OVER the produce section of Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.
