Optimizing the Organs of Elimination in our Bodies on the HCG Diet, a Cleanse and Life in General

Aiding the Organs of Elimination on the HCG Diet and for a healthy life!
The main organs of elimination are the skin, kidneys, liver, lungs and colon. These natural routes of elimination may not be active and functioning at all times leading to an unnatural accumulation of toxins. These toxins in the body may be considered to be the cause of many different symptoms and diseases. That is to say that your present health concerns may be the result of toxic accumulations in your tissues. Below are some simple tasks that can be performed during a cleansing diet or at any time to aid these organs in eliminating toxic accumulation. We highly recomend that all of our patients on our HCG Weight Loss Diet be mindful that the routes of elimination are open. It is important to do all of these tasks during a cleansing diet such as the HCG Diet, so that the cleanse brings you closer to health, rather than just freeing up toxic build-up without a way to exit the body.
Five Effective Exercises to Assist the Organs of Elimination on the HCG Diet, a Cleanse or Daily Life
Below, we outline six very effective tasks. Many of these can be done on a daily basis n the HCG Diet, a cleansing diet or your life in general.
Dry Skin Brushing (1 minute): Obtain a loofa sponge or natural sea sponge from the medicinary or the local health food store. Before each shower, gently rub your dry skin with the dry sponge. Start at your hands and work towards your chest. Then rub from your feet, up your legs, abdomen and towards your heart. Don’t forget your back and buttocks. Use light pressure. Now you are ready to follow the hydrotherapy instructions for your shower.
Hydrotherapy (10 minutes): This is the simple application of alternating hot and cold water in the shower or bath each day. Perform three cycles of three minutes hot and 30 seconds cold. End the third cycle on cold just before you get out of the shower. You do not have to use extremes of temperature for this to be helpful. Use temperatures that you can tolerate. You may also want to start by just applying cold to certain parts of the body (arms and legs). Oddly enough, you may find the cold very invigorating.
Enema (1 hour): This is to be performed when advised by your doctor. It is specific to the type of cleanse you are doing. Follow instructions of your doctor or health professional.
Breathing Exercises: (3 minutes): While you are in bed with the castor oil pack on your stomach is a good time to do the breathing exercises. Place your hand on your abdomen and inhale in such a way that your hand rises. At the peak of your inhale, try to inhale three more times consecutively. Now, forcefully exhale. At the peak of the exhale, try to blow out the remaining air in your lungs with three short exhales. Repeat this for five cycles.
Exercise: (20 minutes at least): Walking, Yoga, Qigong, or other full-body, aerobic exercise is important every day.
