I found a clean makeup line that I’m really liking @pacificabeauty. Cleaning up my makeup hasn’t been easy, but after reading and listening to many of Podcast and articles, I knew it had to happen. I attached a podcast that I really like from @onairwithella. She lists a number of brands like @vapourbeauty that are clean and still work well! @thinkdirty@environmentalworkinggroup are two great apps to help with the process, and if you want to cry about tossing your fav 💄we are here to listen. 😫#aipcommunity#cleanmakeup #cheerstoyourhealth#autoimmunepaleo #detox #cleanliving
I’ve been taking this for two months now – I’m a firm believer in trying it out for a while before sharing. @designsforhealth has made this “antioxidant formula using liposomal technology for superior absorption and delivery.” Why did I jump at the chance to try this? I immediately thought of the #MTHFR mutation that makes absorption of supplements and detoxifying more difficult. Then my liver damage from parasites. The need to detox while battling #candida. Glutathione is so imperative, and if I’m taking the time and spending the money on it I want to know my body is absorbing and utilizing it to its’ full potential. These past few months have shown much promise as blood test results all show I’m headed in the right direction. All good things when it comes to this supplement. 😍 #detox #liverdamage#parasites #hashimotos#digestivedysfunction #aminoacids#liposomalglutathione #GSH#deaignsforhealth #dnaprotection#thyroidhealth #heavymetaldetoxing#mthfrwarriors
To Answer more Questions about it from all of you:
- What is the purpose of Glutathione (GSH) ? -Glutathione is viewed as the bodies master antioxidant and it is most abundant in our liver making it critical in the bodies detoxification process. The depletion of Glutathione can be correlated with lower immune function and increased vulnerability to infection. Glutathione plays a major role in controlling the types of bonds formed between proteins and other substances in your body.
- What does it do for the body?- Some of the physiological functions of Glutathione are that is it responsible for redox and nucleophilic reactions that seen in the detoxification process. GSH has also been associated with assisting in combating cancer, atherosclerosis, as well as the aging process through preventing chronic low dose exposure to POPs to global hypomethylation. GSH plays a role in cell-cycle and stress oxidation regulation, as well as contributes to the mitochondrial function within our cells.
- How does it relate to Glutamine? Glutamine is an amino acid that is naturally created within the body, while Glutathione is made of three different amino acids within the body. Glutathione is correlated with detoxification and anti aging while Glutamine is correlated with immune system, brain function and digestive system.
- Why is this all important for auto immune diseases/disorders? Glutathione is a powerful defense against toxins and inflammation. It protects the body’s cells from damage, it helps detoxify the body, and supports optimal immune function.When Glutathione levels drop too low, this makes you more susceptible to autoimmune disease, multiple food sensitivities, chemical and heavy metal sensitivities, chronic inflammatory disorders, leaky gut, and other immune-related issues. Chronic stress, environmental toxins, diets low in nutrients but high in inflammatory triggers, sleep deprivation, smoking, sugar, excess alcohol, and other stressors slowly deplete glutathione levels. Glutathione levels also decrease naturally as a result of aging.
So much information is swirling around the effects of heavy metals and toxins in the body and how they affect our health and in some cases inhibit us from getting well. Examples of heavy metals include mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As), chromium (Cr), thallium (Tl), and lead (Pb). Although it’s not a heavy metal, aluminum should be included in this list.
In any given day we are exposed to toxins in our environment – second hand smoke, cleaning products, smoke from fires, vehicle emissions, etc. There’s also the consideration that most of us whom have tooth fillings have mercury in our mouths and of course the vaccine controversies. Let’s not forget our foods – fish, wheat, soda, baked goods, processed foods, canned food, chocolates, to name a few.
We are surrounded by toxins and eating toxins and heavy metals every day. So what do we do about it? How can we strip our bodies of toxins and heavy metals?
Take a deep breath, and start considering adding a few of the following to your daily routine:
Selenium, (found naturally in fish and accessible in pill form) is a great way to strip the body of heavy metals.
16 ounces of water in the morning with organic lemon juice is an amazing way to detox your body naturally.
Activated charcoal at night before bed helps strip the body of toxins. I use Bulletproof Coconut Charcoal.
Coffee enemas – although they are less than pleasant, they’re better than feeling “off” all the time. Give your colon a reset once in a while 🙂
Milk Thistle cleanses your liver (if you drink alcohol, you should always take this before bed to detox the liver).
Up your vitamin C intake.
Strive to eat 1/2 a cup of fresh herbs daily – I love sprinkling cilantro and parsley on all my food!
Raw Garlic – a few cloves a day, and it keeps the vampires at bay… 😉
Probiotics – consider SPORE based probiotics!
Chlorella – acts as a natural chelation therapy option, pulling heavy metals out of the body.
Replace household cleaning agents with natural, chemical free ones.
Replace shampoo/conditioner, face products, cosmetics, hair products, lotions, etc. with clean alternatives ALWAYS making sure they are gluten free as well. Unless a vitamin E is labeled otherwise, it is made from wheat germ – so pay attention to that and Tocopherol, Tocopheryl acetate – they are hidden gluten factors in MANY things.
Hoping this sheds some light on the situation. When you’re battling toxins and heavy metals, it can slow your healing and sometimes prevent it all together. Work a little more each day to feel your very best!
