AIM Herbal FiberBlend ™ Cleansing and Detoxification
Digestive problems compromise the #1 health problem in North America. Hemorrhoids to colon cancer; digestive problems are on the increase. No wonder too! The food we eat is not like the food our grandparents lived on. Refined in every way, one constituent of most of the food we eat shows up less and less. FIBER. Studies have shown that in populations which have a high fiber diet, diseases like colon cancer, appendicitis and diverticulosis are very low. Industrialized countries show a much higher incidence of these and other digestion-related diseases.
Fiber in the diet has long been shown to be one of the cheif constituents in the diet that manitains regularity and reduces transit time, eliminating constipation. Fiber in the diet results in a more thurough evacuation of waste materials. It is said that fiber causes starches and sugars to be absorbed more slowly into the bloodstream, reducing the amount of glucose in the blood, and so the pancreas has to work less to produce enough isulin.
Fiber removes bile acids from the body, and bile acids are made from Cholesterol. In order for the body to replace these bile acids, it pulls more cholesterol out of the blood. This lowers Cholesterol.
Fiber is low in calories, and so can be added to your idet to give you a feeling of satiety without significantly increasing your calory intake. In other words, you will find yourself eating less. Many peole use this feature in weightloss programs.
The concept of body cleansing is not new. For centuries health practitioners have strived to keep the body in harmony, traditionaly by diet, internal medicine, purging, vomiting, bleeding, cuppng and other methods.
Many modern health practitioners recognize the importance of keeping the body in harmony; referred to as cleansing or detoxification. We believe that this is particularly important today, as our world is becoming increasingly polluted with toxins found in the environment and in the foods we eat.
Toxins undermine our health. Elson Haas, M.D., in his book Staying Healthy with Nutrition, defines a toxin simply as “any substance that creates irritating and/or harmful effects in the body, undermining our health or stressing our biochemical or organ functions.”More specifically, a body overloaded with toxins can result in a number of symptoms. These include constipation, stomach bloat, poor digestion, gas, fatigue, weight gain, excessive mucus, poor concentration, headaches, poor skin, poor memory, depression, body odor, and bad breath.
Some health practitioners relate toxins to specific diseases. R.A. Buist, M.D. (International Clinical Nutrition 8, no. 4 ), states that chronic fatigue syndrome may be related to toxin exposure. Multiple chemical sensitivity and fibromyalgia (muscle and joint pain) may also be environment-related diseases. Indeed, there is a new medical category, clinical ecology, which deals exclusively with how toxins in the environment affect our health.
The body does have a system in place for detoxifying these harmful toxins. The most important cleansing organ is the liver. Eliminative channels include the bowels (the digestive system), kidneys, skin, lungs, and lymphatic system.
When the body is doing its job, and is not overburdened with toxins, the blood carries toxins to the liver, which uses enzymes to detox the harmful substances. They are rendered harmless or converted into a water-soluble form that is then eliminated via the urine or feces.
Unfortunately, this system can handle only so many toxins and was designed for “natural”toxins, not the man-made ones we have to deal with today. For example, protection against an age-old toxin- alcohol is built into our genes. One gene codes an enzyme to convert alcohol into substances that the body can use or excrete.
Our body does not, however, always know how to handle the new toxins in our lives. It cannot understand how to excrete them, and they may accumulate to harmful quantities or be converted to odd, unknown substances that can interfere with metabolism. According to the textbook Nutrition, Concepts and Controversies, this can result in cancers or birth defects.
Today, there are different ways to cleanse the body. Among these are baths and hydrotherapy, diet and nutrition, herbs, chelation, and exercise. Using herbal supplements, often in conjunction with other methods, is one of the most popular ways to cleanse the body.
Herbs in cleansing
Herbs have been used for cleansing purposes for ages. Herbs are said to promote cleansing by eliminating toxins from the organs and systems of the body.
Two thousand to three thousand years ago, herbal medicine was practiced in both China and India. About 2,000 years ago, the earliest Chinese pharmacopoeia, the Pen Tsao, appeared. It tried to give an authoritative survey of the medicinal preparations available at the time.In the West, in the first century a.d., the pharmaceutical guide De Materia Medica was written by the Greek physician Dioscorides. In it, he describes the use of more than 600 different herbs, as well as 35 animal products and 90 minerals.
