Having too much weight can cause heart problems, increased blood pressure as well as diabetes. That’s because even though the fat is dangerous, it is also full of toxins which many people aren’t even aware to have!
Why Are Their Toxins Stored In Our Fat Cells?
A discovery from the 1980s proved that all of the samples they had containing human fat were full of 1 dioxin and 4 industrial solvents. They also contained PCBs and furan.
How Can We Define Dioxins?
These are chemical contaminants which usually appear because of combustion processes like backyard trash burning, waste incineration, forest fires, etc. They were also found during herbicide manufacturing and paper pulp bleaching.
Our body has its own coping mechanism which prevents these dangerous toxins to destroy our organs, so it starts storing them in our fat cells.
There Are Two Different Types of Toxins:
- Toxins soluble in water: we can filtrate them through our kidneys and the blood very fast;
- Toxins soluble in fat: they have to be processed by our liver and then converted into ones which are soluble in water. They are usually full of pollutants, pesticides, heavy metals, preservatives, plastics, food additives, etc.
Our Liver Is The First Thing To Protect Us
Bile is produced by our liver. This fluid is green or yellow in color and is stored inside our gallbladder. We need it in order to eliminate blood and red blood cells which are worn out as well as digest fats.
In the process of digestion, the fats should be absorbed and carried to the liver. The good ones become skin or brain cells, as well as hormones, cell membranes and cholesterol.
The bad fats should be eliminated through our bile that goes out of our body in the form of fecal matter.
That’s why we need to make sure our diet is full of dietary fiber.
What Can The Lymphatic System Do?
Our complete intestinal tract is surrounded by lymphatic tissue.
This tissue is important for the processing of all fats, toxic and nutritional, The lymphatic and the digestive tissue have to be healthy if we want the process to be successful.
When we have a problem with some of the tissues and they are congested, we can have some of these common signs:
- Occasional headaches
- Swollen hands and feet
- Joint stiffness
- Skin irritations/itching
- Extra weight around the belly area
Why Does Our Body Store Toxins In The Form Of Fat?
When the lymph absorbs toxins, they become neutralized because of the white blood cells present in our lymph nodes. If our digestive system is unhealthy or our lymphatic system is congested, those toxins will go back to our liver, disturbing the process itself.
After this, the liver will become congested and the bile will be ineffective. The toxins will go into our blood stream and later in the fat cells. In time, they’ll start to degenerate and be the reason for oxidation.
What Are The Ways To Eliminate Toxins?
Increased levels of stress, obesity and food allergies can cause too much toxins in our body, but here are some natural ways to help us eliminate toxins!
1. Get Fit
Start living active! Only that will help you be healthy. You can eliminate toxins through the skin with the help of sweating. Your cardiovascular and lymphatic systems will be healthier too when we start exercising, so they’ll also eliminate toxins.
The process of detoxification can help us eliminate congestion and in this way, remove toxins. Try to use food products which are organic, but you should also try to buy cleaning products which are natural in order to protect your home.
3. Eat Well
Your diet should be filled with dietary fiber in order to have good resorption of the bile. You can intake whole grains like oatmeal, quinoa etc., calciferous vegetables, fruits and other nutrients.
Be careful in case you aren’t tolerant to some ingredients like gluten and milk since it will cause additional inflammation.
Inflammation is mostly caused by stress. Try to discover ways to help you relax so that you can avoid stressful situations that cause greater problems.
