3 Crazy Simple Ways to Remove Toxins From Your Body

Our modern environment is full of toxins that can act as endocrine disruptors, damaging your hormonal milieu over years of chronic buildup. Over time, these toxins can do serious damage. As a “bio-optimizer,” I enjoy looking at the different systems in the body through a lens that makes “manipulation” possible. Most people accept circumstances and never look for solutions.

This is the exact same mental process I used to naturally increase my testosterone levels from 11 ng/dL to 1200 ng/dL in 18 months. Understand a system, then bend it to your will. It’s paramount that we understand the systems we want to manipulate.

So, in that vein, today I’d like to set three main targets that we need to optimize in our body in order to eliminate toxins properly.

  • The liver
  • The kidneys
  • The colon

I’ve discussed common toxins/chemicals on this blog before. Most people — guys especially — don’t really understand how big of a negative impact these endocrine disruptors can have on your hormonal health, especially your testosterone levels.

It’s not rocket science. Endocrine optimization is actually pretty simple: you just need to pay attention to the right things and take consistent action.

Endocrine Disruptors Explained

In simple terms, endocrine disruptors are any type of chemicals that inhibit the endocrine system’s ability to function normally. For those a few years removed from science education, the endocrine system comprises of all the glands responsible for hormone production and circulation. Major glands include the pituitary and pineal glands in the brain, the thyroid gland in the throat and the testis in the genitals.

Endocrine disruptors consist of a wide range of substances, both manmade and found in nature. Examples include:

  • Lead
  • Arsenic
  • BPA
  • Mercury
  • Organophosphate pesticides
  • Fire retardant
  • Glycol ethers

How Do Endocrine Disruptors Work?

Through extensive lab studies, researchers have concluded that endocrine disruptors work in the following ways:

  • Interferes or blocks the way hormones and their receptors are naturally made
    • One way they do this is by altering the way hormones metabolizes in the liver.
  • Attaches to a receptor within a cell and prevents it from binding with the hormones
    • This offsets the normal signal that’s supposed to take place from the binding. Anti-androgens and anti-estrogens are common disruptors known to cause hormone and receptor binding.

How To Remove Toxins From Your Body: 3 Simple Ways To Eliminate Them

1. How To Eliminate Toxins From Your Liver

I recently suffered from a week-long bout of severe hives all over my body. It was completely miserable, and it was suspected to have been a liver issue (because of where they were specifically located, including up and down my spinal cord), with an overload of physical and psychological stress causing my liver to become over-taxed.

Besides resting, one of the key things I did to detox my liver over that week was consume a TON of lemon water with oregano oil and colloidal silver.

Make your own detox drink

  • Fresh filtered water
  • Organic lemon juice from full lemon
  • 3 drops organic oregano oil
  • 3 drops colloidal silver

2. How To Eliminate Toxins From Your Kidneys

Your kidneys eliminate waste byproducts via the urinary tract. After a trip to Mexico when I was 17 — where I tagged along with a group of GI surgeons giving away free bladder and kidney stone removal surgeries — I was scared stiff into keeping my kidneys healthy over my life.

A kidney stone removal is one of the most gruesome, bloody and dangerous procedures I’ve seen. And the stones themselves are disgusting. That’s what happens when you don’t take care of the detoxifying processes in your kidneys.

My favorite way to keep my kidneys healthy is eating and drinking watermelon. Watermelon contains high doses of a potent antioxidant known as lycopene, which has been proven to protect against toxic damage to your endocrine system, especially in men, preserving sperm count and testosterone levels even in the face of extreme toxic introduction.

3 Juice Recipes for Kidney Detox

Watermelon is 92 percent water by weight, which means that it will help your body to flush the kidneys, which can help to remove very small stones. It is also an amazing source of potassium, which is a mineral salt that can help to dissolve kidney stones allowing the residue to be passed.

Clear Kidney Watermelon Flush

2 cups watermelon
1 lime, peeled

Instructions: Blend together and enjoy.

Power of 2 Kidney Juice

Carrots and cucumber are a super-powered-up duo. Combined, they support the kidneys in flushing out excess uric acid (known to cause kidney stones), support the kidneys in flushing out excess toxins as well as load your body up with a mega dose of nutrients.

The kidneys filter your blood, so if they’re taxed or unable to function at full capacity, this can show up in the form of skin issues like eczema or acne breakouts. Drink this combination of veggies for a cleansing effect on the kidneys, and the skin, resulting in a glowing, beautiful complexion.

2 Carrots
1 large Cucumber

Instructions: Wash your produce and run all ingredients through a juicer.

Super Radish Kidney Detox

Radishes are super detoxifiers for the liver and gallbladder, and help the kidneys flush out excess toxins. They protect the body against infection, and they’re anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. Juicing radishes allows your body to absorb more of the nutrients than you would from eating them whole, due to the volume it would take to eat radishes vs. juicing them. If you suffer from kidney stones, drinking radish juice can help dissolve stones so you can pass them more quickly.

1 cup radish
1 cup purple cabbage
1 rib celery

Instructions: Wash your produce and run all ingredients through a juicer.

3. How To Eliminate Toxins From Your Colon

Your colon is responsible for a lot of detoxification (and enabling defecation) along with absorption of nutrients. The quickest and cheapest way to keep your colon healthy is to ensure you get ample micronutrients.

You can do this by taking a daily micronutrient support supplement like QuickFix. Or you can get those micronutrients from juice or food.

Here’s a quick-n-easy colon cleanse cocktail that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Natural Colon Detox Drink

Orange juice (with pulp)
Arrowroot powder
Vitamin C crystals powder
Grape juice (organic)
Ground Flaxseed Meal

So there you have it. Three crazy-simple ways to eliminate toxins from your body.
