Proper Diet & Nutrition
No detoxification program is complete
without the basic building blocks of proper nutrition. Stay away from
low-vitality foods, overcooked or processed foods, fried foods, junk
foods, etc. Refined products that contain sugar, salt, saturated fats,
caffeine, nicotine and alcohol are extremely detrimental to the human
that excessive intake of animal proteins (especially red meats) places a
tremendous burden on the digestive system.
Our bodies need live foods for optimal
fruits, raw vegetables and whole grains. Theses foods contain the
necessary enzymes to assist in proper digestion and assimilation of
nutrients, as well as important fibers to expedite intestinal transit
time. The old saying, "you are what you eat," is a fundamental
Enzyme Supplementation (From: The
Healing Power of Enzymes)
We need enzymes when we eat food that has
been cooked, frozen, processed, or altered in any way. Enzymes are
destroyed by the heat produced when we boil, microwave, or pressure-cook
food. If the temperature rises above 118 degrees Fahrenheit while
steaming, even that process can destroy enzymes.
Eighty percent of our body's energy is
expended by the digestive process. If you are run down, under stress,
living in a very hot or very cold climate, pregnant, or are a frequent air
traveler, enormous quantities of extra enzymes are
required by your body. Because our entire system functions through
enzymatic action, we must supplement our enzymes. Aging
deprives us of our ability to produce necessary enzymes. The
medical profession tells us that all disease is due to lack or imbalance
of enzymes. Our very lives are dependent upon them.
(In my opinion this is why most colon
hydrotherapist, including myself, believe: Improperly working bowels are
the cause of over 90% of all disease on the face of the earth. Let's face
it, if food is not being properly digested, assimilated, and eliminated
but instead remains in the colon as putrefied and fermented feces any
nutrients present would pass into the blood as polluted products. Thus
creating the disease)
The Importance of Water
Water is instrumental in the body’s cleansing
It flushes out
toxins, wastes and cellular debris from our systems, while transporting
nutrients, vitamins, minerals, proteins and sugars for assimilation. Water
cleanses the body inside and out. When the body gets enough water, it
works at its peak. It is very important that we drink at least one half of
our weight in ounces of water per day. Example: If you weigh 180
pounds you should be drinking 90 ounces of water per day.
The Importance of Exercise
Exercise strengthens the entire body and mind. It stimulates the
circulatory and lymphatic system, and it builds the muscles, the glands,
the lungs, the heart and the brain. Blood is pumped throughout the body by
a strong heart, but lymphatic fluid depends solely
on exercise to be circulated. The lymphatic
system is instrumental in the body's cleansing system. Studies show a moderate exercise
program involving heart-rate elevation for a period of 20 to 30 minutes
per day is all that is necessary for optimum benefits.
The Use of Herbs & Fiber
Herb’s are nature’s cleansers, rich in food-source vitamins,
minerals, amino acids and enzymes. Herbs are truly unique among
therapeutic elements in that they work with the body’s own
accelerating and stimulating internal cleansing processes, fueling
re-growth of cells and tissues, and building resistance to disease.
Fibers provide the roughage and bulk needed to sweep, clean and tone
the entire digestive tract. Fiber tends to quicken the transit time of
waste elimination, absorbing toxins along the way.
Fasting is one of the world's oldest cleansing therapies. Although
Biblical fasting also held religious significance, the healing principles
of a fast were well known. By abstaining from food, stress was removed
from essential organs and the digestive process, so that healing
and rebuilding could take place. Fasting
works by self-digestion. During a cleansing fast, the body, in its
infinite wisdom, will decompose and burn only the substances that are
damaged, diseased or unneeded.
There are dozens of in-depth books at local health food
stores. Before starting a fast, know what to expect. The body can go
through dramatic and sometimes alarming changes as accumulated wastes are
expelled. All interested individuals should thoroughly educate themselves on
Enemas & Colonics
Enemas & colonics both involve the use of purified water to
irrigate and flush out toxins from the bowel. Enema
bags can be purchased at any drugstore, and are usually self-administered
in the comfort and privacy of one’s home. Colonics
should always be administered by a trained
professional. Colonics, properly administered are more thorough
Both enemas and colonics are very useful
and in the opinion of Dr. Duncan, necessary for a
complete internal cleanse. They increase the release of old,
encrusted colon waste, encourage the discharge of toxins and parasites,
freshen the gastrointestinal tract and make the
whole cleansing process easier and more thorough.
Enemas and/or colonics are a mandatory part of Dr. Duncan’s fasting
programs with advanced clients. Although some persons are mentally
uncomfortable with the procedure, the positive results usually overcome
any preliminary hesitancy or fear. After passing mucous strings, hardened
fecal matter and old rubbery material from their bowel with the help of an
enema or colonic, nervous clients quickly become
converts. While Dr Duncan does not condone over-usage of these
therapeutic techniques, he firmly believes they are
important tools in the detoxification process.
Stress Management (The Emotional Connection)
Stress is a modern day evil that effects our
physical health in many negative ways. Stress
every cell and tissue in the human body, breaking down the immune system
as well as all of the major organs. It robs the body of important
vitamins and minerals, and over time, can cause severe acid build up.
Stress hinders proper digestion, absorption and elimination of nutrients
by throwing the digestive system out of balance. It interferes with the
body’s cleansing processes, and actually contributes
to toxic buildup.
An individual can eat a perfect diet, cleanse his or her body
internally and exercise regularly, but if he or she is in a constant state
of mental stress, the physical problems will not go away. The body and
mind must be treated "wholistically." Taking
care of oneself both physically and emotionally must go hand in hand.
