Title: Detoxing

  • Truth or dare?

Detoxing from foot baths to diet to energy
  • The basic premise is to take something out of the
    body that has build up.
  • Nature has an innate sense of surviving by
    natural detoxing the liver.
  • With pollution comes eventual build up (remember
    the Native American?)
  • With Technology, Post-War Chemicals, Food
    Industry, Transportation, Antibiotics-
    (pharmaceuticals)comes indulgence and
    exposure..but lets concentrate on food-

  • When you take in for nutrition, you eliminate
    anything that cant be used (1,2)
  • Humans hunt and gather and follow the
    herds/seasons to keep close to a food source.
  • With civilization, no need to move/wander with
    the seasons food can be found in distant places
    and brought to you. (first intro to inactivity)
  • Now, average produce travels 2000 miles before
    you purchase it-and it still looks shiny and
    fresh! (just like Joan Rivers)

The Bodys Own Detox Plan
  • Liver- bile, cholesterol, (sterol), drug
  • Kidney- urea, major toxin (drug) path
  • Skin- secrete perspiration, electolyte
  • Lung/nose- bacteria, gas, water
  • Colon- nonfiltered particle, fiber, bact
  • Lymphatics- provider of transportation
  • let the body do what it knows!

Common Detox Methods
  • Liver herb/diet -(mostly herbal milk thistle)
  • Colon colonics/fiber- (coffee from Gerson)
  • Sweat exercise/lodges (bikram?)/10-2
  • Blood letting leaches/george washington
  • Foot baths electric current
  • Fasting (withdrawal dieting)
  • Spiritual exorcism/vodoo bone/medicine m
  • Energy reiki/crystal/sound/intuitives

Medical studies
  • RCT
  • Double blinds
  • Retrospective
  • -all say no change in before and after
    measurements..but anecdote ! (More on Einsiein

The Saguil Approach
  • The sooner it dies
  • .the better it is for you!?

  • no
    preservatives.imagine bread with a shelf life of
    12 minths?!!!

Oxidative Build Up
  • Inflammation
  • Overindulgence
  • Poor nutrition
  • Poor activity
  • Poor spirit /-

What happens in oxidation?
  • Oxidation-Reduction reaction-
  • think cleavage!!!! )
  • Unchecked oxidation leads to free radicals
  • Think of free radicals as energy sources but not
    good energy like ATP, glucose, oxygen ---think
    of it like radiation, heat, pain, cell wall
    damage, unchecked swelling, chromosome damage,
    defect unmasking.
  • Body can handle some but for the bulk it cant
    handle, you are now exposing yourself to damaging
    energyremember Hiroshima?

  • Trauma
  • Infection
  • Food proinflammatory food
  • Medicine side effects
  • Poor sleep/altered healing
  • Chronic pain
  • Chronic emotional trauma/stress

Inflammation-its not all bad
  • Inflammation is necessary for healing but..
  • To much unchecked inflammation will lead to acute
    pain, movement limitation, chronic pain, poor
    lymph and blood flow, organ and gland
    dysfunction, alteration of the sympathetic and
    parasympathetic systemspoor homeostasis

Infection-its bad
  • I dont like it but inevitable
  • I believe a well oiled machine will fight and
    recover quickly
  • Antibiotics and vaccinations work but have side
    effects that lead to more inflammation,
    resistance or poor homeostasis (Saguil Approach
    -wait 5y)
  • Herd Immunity

FOOD! (and here we are!)
  • Hippocrates Food as Medicine
  • 2000-2500 calories daily ok for average
  • Transfats daily? (labeling says 0 for anything
  • lt 0.5)
  • High glycemic foods?
  • Empty Calorie Diets poor nutrition
  • Food treated poorly- Kobe Beef, Salmon Farms,
    GMOs, Hormone fed chicken and beef, antibiotic
    resistant animals.

Glycemic Index (just know the concept!)
For more info
  • American Diabetes Association 2006
  • Johanna Burani, MS, RD,CDE
  • http//

Food Side Effects
  • Alteration of insulin, gh, glucagon, serotonin,
    oxytocin!!!!!!to start inflammation and damage.
  • Filling with average teen diet leads to satiety
    and lack of want for moms home cooking
  • Caffeine addiction and hyperstimulation/hormone
  • Alcohol addiction/liver congestion now and later
  • Fat in steak/pork, antibiotics in salmon, genetic
    virus in GMO, high hormone levels in chicken also
    cause poor thriving, immunity for animal
  • Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations -Poop!

Food Good Effects
  • Well oiled machine -homeostasis
  • Excellent hormone cycles
  • Tolerability to stressors
  • High functioning mental capacity
  • Faster wound healing
  • Killer immune system
  • Great sex, sleep, productivity (Moses) and

homeostasis broken down
  • If the cell is bathed in oxytocin, serotonin it
    will want to function at its peak
  • Parasympathetic system is the rest, digest, love
    system-Maximize on this!
  • (Sympathetic is necessary but not for 8 hours a
    day- maybe just 3 times a year)
  • --Allow a cell to function and give it a healthy
    environment and it will fix itself- See how
    nature would do it -Andy Weil

Concept changes in food
  • 1973 Imitation Food erased from labels
  • 1977 Eat less red meat Sen. Mcgovern
  • . now all was a calorie, , portion, carb,
    protein or a fat. Industry took off from then,
    consumers got unhealthy with the new idea of
    food, no longer for community -(filipino plate at
    the door habit), ritual, culture, pleasure,
    identity. Micheal Pollan

The Food Pyramid (how politics influences health)
The Western Diet
  • Refined grain (no bran, no germ, lasts long GI)
  • Pure sugar
  • Red meat
  • Processed meats
  • Little whole grains
  • Little fresh fruits and vegetables
  • fast
    food dietnational eating disorder

Diseases associated with WD in other countries
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Certain cancers
  • our WMD.

Killers in the US
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Stroke (CVD)
  • Chronic lower resp diseases
  • Accidents
  • Alzheimers
  • Diabetes

Harvards Pyramid Walter Willet Lyon Diet Heart
Lyon Diet Heart Study
  • The type of diet described by the Healthy Eating
    Pyramid really does seem to be healthier than the
    currently conventional Western diet since a
    Mediterranean diet similar to the Healthy Eating
    Pyramid was trialed in the Lyon Diet Heart Study.
    This French study20 of patients who had survived
    a heart attack had to be stopped early after just
    two and a half years because the trial diet was
    so effective compared to the control diet (a
    mildly modified Western diet). All-cause death
    was 70 lower in the trial group than in the
    control group.

Fight the Killers with Fads? No, just for looks
  • The ZONE On the plus side, The ZONE encourages
    people to exercise, drink lots of water, and
    limit carbohydrates while balancing proteins and
    fat. It distinguishes between good and bad fats
    and better and worse carbohydrates. However, I do
    not like its suggestion that food should be
    regarded as a drug to manipulate your hormones
    and metabolism - that is not a healthy attitude
    toward food and eating. Overall, however, the
    ZONE is one of the better diets out there for
    healthy weight loss.
  • The Perricone Diet Touted as "the wrinkle cure,"
    this diet, devised by a dermatologist, holds that
    eating high-quality animal protein (excluding red
    meat) as well as healthy fats, lots of fresh
    berries and pure-water will reduce inflammatory
    changes in the body and thereby prevent wrinkles.
    These recommendations are good, but there is no
    scientific evidence that any eating plan can
    prevent or eliminate wrinkles. Also, Dr.
    Perricone tells you to eat an immoderate amount
    of salmon and fails to warn about the dangers of
    farmed salmon.
  • The Ornish Diet Mainly a very low-fat,
    vegetarian plan, this diet, in combination with
    group support, stress reduction, and moderate
    exercise, was devised to halt (even reverse)
    coronary heart disease. In my view the emphasis
    on very low-fat intake is obsolete and fails to
    take note of the important distinction between
    high and low glycemic-load carbohydrate foods.
    Most people not facing invasive cardiac
    procedures will not have the motivation to stick
    with this restrictive diet.
  • The South Beach Diet Devised by a noted
    cardiologist, this diet requires you to eliminate
    carbohydrates for two weeks and then add back
    specific, low glycemic-load carbs. Its weaknesses
    are that you don't count calories or control
    portion size, exercise isn't addressed, and I
    think there is too much emphasis on meat. The
    underlying assumption is that if you're
    overweight, you must be insulin resistant, which
    isn't true for everyone.
  • The Atkins Diet Here you also eliminate most
    carbs and don't count calories. My major
    objection to this one is its failure to
    distinguish between good and bad fats (olive oil
    and other monounsaturates being the good ones and
    saturated and polyunsaturates the unhealthy
    ones). Similarly, there isn't enough emphasis on
    fiber, vitamins and minerals, all of which are
    important in disease prevention. If you're on
    Atkins, you miss out on health-protective
    phytochemicals found in fruits and many
    vegetables and don't learn to differentiate
    between healthy low glycemic-load carbs and less
    healthy high-glycemic load ones. Some studies
    have shown that short-term use of the Atkins diet
    is safe and effective for healthy weight loss.
    Many physicians are concerned about long-term
    health risks.

Diets that have lasted
  • Paleolithic.just kidding, no f v
  • Japanese diet seasonality, high fish, high plant
    land and sea, presentation
  • Mediterranean diet low meat, high plant, high
    monosat fats, wide variety, grain
  • Vegan/vegetarian/raw B12, iron, fats
  • labor
    intensive but healthy

  • Vegan -no meat,dairy,processed,egg
  • Raw Vegan unprocessed veg, not gt115
  • Lacto Vegetarian dairy ok, no eggs
  • Lacto-ovo vegetarian -dairy egg ok
  • Flexitarian/semi-vegetarian
  • Pescatarian all meats but fish ok
  • Pollo Vegetarian poultry ok (chik,turk,du)

The Ornish Program
  • Plant based diet (vegetarian diet)
  • Meditation
  • Exercise
  • Group support
  • -Dr Dean Ornish has published studies showing
    that a low-fat (10 fat) vegetarian diet resulted
    in a 60 reduction in adverse cardiac events in
    patients with moderate to severe coronary heart
    disease - and soon prostate cancer!
  • -approved by Medicare last summer!
    Hopefully the shape of things to come!

The 21 day Wellness Program
  • Red meat, pork and chicken (fish allowed)
  • Wheat and Sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Dairy products (eggs allowed)
  • Yoga (movement) and Meditation

    (this is why it works!)

Draw backs
  • The headaches and insomnia that will come from
    body not getting its fix
  • -caffeine, hi GI foods, taste association,
    courage in a bottle, saturated fat-butta and
    grissle, high sugar, low fiber, extra cash for
    cool clothes by buying 7 family value pack!
  • -WARNING, you will spend more money since
    healthy eating, movement and spirituality is not
    covered by insurance
  • -luckily bypass, back surgery, radiation,
    chemotherapy, post stroke therapy, chronic
    rehabilitation and life long prescriptions are
    covered by insurance!!YEAH, HOORAY!

  • Weight loss from mindful eating
  • Decreased pro-inflammatory foods (spark)
  • Liberated energy from the gi tract
  • More room for good foods (color,fiber,oil)
  • Less bloating, more physical movement, better
    breathing, more colonic movement, less
    stagnation, more meridia/chakra flow
  • Better mentation, happier cells, better dna

  • -The incorporation of a healing tradition from
    5000 years old to modern day medical practice.
    It sets a framework to allow the physical body
    unrestricted utilization of energy. It allows
    the mind a calming technique to champion
    especially in times of stress. When both body
    and mind are allowed to function with unlimited
    expression, health and happiness are experienced
    and love is found.

  • Enrique Saguil

..then comes the yoga part!
  • Movement -(not necessar-ily flexibility)
  • Breath control -(stress reduction, oxygen, 355
    cutoff, internal massage)
  • Mindful clarity (stillness doesnt mean not
    moving), CELLS WORK BETTER!!
  • Herb Benson found meditation could control blood
    pressure, heart rate, respiration
    temperatureAND GENE EXPRESSION!!
