Detox and I Love Lucy: How Toxic Overload Effects your Liver

Written by Ritamarie Loscalzo on September 14, 2009

I’m always asked questions like, “What’s the best way to cure Chronic Fatigue“  or  “How can I get my hormones in balance?”  The strategies for both are amazingly similar.  In fact, when it comes right down to it, adrenal exhaustion, irritable bowel, eczema, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, thyroid problems, arthritis , depression and just about any condition you can name all have at least one thing in common.  All of these conditions can be traced back to a body overloaded by toxicity.

In our modern world with its modern conveniences, we are constantly inundated by “modern” toxins.  There are chemicals in the air, plastics in the food, pesticides and drugs in the water and toxic emotions spurred by watching the news.  Then there’s all the processing that takes what once was a real food and leaves it filled with empty calories, oxidized fats and enough  free radicals to cause a revolution!

I recorded a video clip on cleansing to  answer the questions I get all the time.  Cleansing is something your body knows how to do, as long as it doesn’t get overloaded.  And when it does, it’s time to take a break and allow healing and cleansing to take place.  Listen in for some tips and tricks.  Then afterward, have a look at my favorite I Love Lucy clip.

” I Love Lucy”  – Lucy and Ethel show what happens when the liver gets overloaded with toxins.  It gets caught up when you do  a Deep Tissue Detox , a Green Smoothie Cleanse or a Juice Cleanse.

When I first learned about toxins and how to eat, breath, think and feel to eliminate them, (almost 25 years ago) I did my very first cleanse.  It changed my life.  I now do mini cleanses at least 4 times a year.

Give cleansing a try.  It will change your life.

Love, Health and Joy,

Dr. Ritamarie
