less radical cures should throw off old baggage
to come to terms with yourself.
But it's not that easy.
Fasting and Detoxing
The doctor and inventor of therapeutic fasting, Dr. Otto Buchinger
(1878-1966), was the first to use the term
Purification based on cleansing
of combustion residues in blast furnaces or
Fire boilers used by steam locomotives.
What exactly is meant by that, of which substances
the body being cleansed is never precisely defined
been. «Today we know that it ... only to a limited extent
is possible to discharge harmful substances », so the
Medical Association for Therapeutic Fasting and Nutrition e.V.
in a recent statement.
When fasting, a distinction is made between therapeutic
Fasting in a clinic (e.g. for obesity, rheumatic
and allergic diseases) and that
one-week fast for healthy people. Ultimately, both should
lead to a healthier way of life.
Most detox regimens aren't fasts:
You are not primarily interested in burning fat,
colon cleansing is not mandatory
necessary and on solid food does not have to be entirely
be waived. However, both have one thing in common
(temporarily) renouncing luxury foods.
What detoxifies during fasting, should during detoxing
be the detox. It is postulated, man
treat the organism to «a deep cleansing ...
of toxic substances »from the environment, food
and luxury foods such as heavy metals, pesticides,
Nicotine, alcohol, flavor enhancers, color and
Is Detox Really Possible?
In conventional medicine, the term describes detoxification

The most well-known measure is colon cleansing
by douching or laxatives
- the purification and detoxification therapy par
excellence. Some colon cleansing providers
paint a gloomy picture of our body's interior. There
there is talk of a “completely polluted one
Organism "and by the kilo" of waste that is in the intestine
rotted for weeks, months or even years ».
It is logical that there is trust in the Creator
or nature can lose and the «oil change»
in the truest sense of the word.
The organs of detoxification do this in healthy people
our body like liver, kidneys,
Intestines, lungs, skin and also the lymphatic system unite
optimal job. Edzard Ernst, Professor of Complementary Medicine
at Exeter University, says:
«Improvements are not necessary and can be made by
Detox therapies also cannot be done »because
the various organs function extremely well
effective - unless someone is seriously ill.
Prof. Colin Berry, pathologist at the University of London,
sums up the result of the aforementioned
Detox products investigation of the nonprofit
"Sense about Science" foundation as follows:
«It's very easy to detox: just leave
Your body will use the great systems that it
Over thousands of years it has evolved to be anything
get rid of what makes you sick. "
It becomes dangerous when one believes the sins
a year or a festive glitz with help
to be able to wipe away a detox treatment. Prof.
Ernst says that detoxification concepts could lead to
to happily fill your stomach full, to
smoking and drinking alcohol, that is, one's own
"System" to burden with toxins, and through
the use of this or that detox regimen
to be able to rectify everything afterwards.
The hard (and wrong) variant
Detox cures can be very different. The
Gazettes report, Naomi Campbell, Madonna, Demi
Moore, Denzel Washington and Beyoncé practiced
«Lemon Detox» (also called Master Cleanse),
what this "detox and fat burning diet"
earned a lot of attention and popularity.

If you feel drained and tired, the complexion is pale and dull, unwanted love handles have spread -
then a spring cure that deviates from the usual lifestyle and eating habits is good for you.

must be from this extreme fasting method
strongly discouraged. The French
national supervisory authority Anses has them as dangerous
classified, and in Australia "crowned" 50
Nutrition experts «lemon detox» to the wrong
