Liver/Bile Duct Support
You always want to make sure your liver and bile duct are functioning well if you’re experiencing die-off. Here are some general detox practices that you can use any time you’re experiencing die-off.
Coffee Enemas: Read Coffee Enema: The Detox and Bile Flow Superstar for specific instructions on how to perform a coffee enema.
Castor Oil Packs: Soak unbleached cotton flannel in organic, cold-pressed, hexane-free castor oil. Place it over your liver, cover in a thin towel, and apply heat.
Infrared heating pad: a good infrared heating pad has all the incredible infrared technology of an infrared sauna, but it’s portable and inexpensive.
Dandelion root tea is another great liver support agent.
Since your lymphatic system helps process the toxins and waste and remove them from your body, give it some extra TLC while on a parasite cleanse. Here are some tips for keeping your lymphatic system moving.
Massage: Your lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump like your heart to keep it flowing, so it relies on movement. Try a home lymphatic drainage massage or get a professional lymphatic massage.
Rebounding: Purchase a personal-sized trampoline and jump on it for 5-10 minutes a day. Not only does it strengthen your cardiovascular system and provide a good workout, but it also stimulates your lymph to move. For you, this means the toxins are being pushed through at a faster pace, lessening unwanted detox symptoms. (Cogoli)
Dry Skin Brushing: Using a natural bristle brush to brush your skin, always toward your heart, to stimulate lymphatic flow.
Contrast Showers: Turn your shower water very warm (careful not to burn yourself) for three minutes, followed by cold for one minute. Repeat the cycle 3-4 times.
General Die-Off Support
Epsom Salt Baths: These can help draw toxins from your skin. If you’re sensitive to Epsom salts, your body may have trouble with its transsulfuration pathway. Epsom salts are Magnesium Sulfate, which can be hard for a small percentage of the population to process. In this case, you can try Magnesium Chloride flakes instead. Taking certain forms of magnesium, like Magnesium Citrate, can also keep your bowels moving. (Portalatin)
Binders: BioActive Carbon binders made of humic acid and fulvic acid extracts can safely escort toxins out of your body.
Infrared Sauna: Infrared saunas can help you sweat out toxins and eliminate them faster. Just be sure to restore electrolytes and minerals you lose through sweating.
Green Juice: Flooding your body with nutrition in the form of green juice or green smoothies will help your digestion, energy, and immune system.
Stress-Relief: Practicing forms of stress-relief, like yoga or meditation, keeps your body out of fight-or-flight mode and encourages your parasympathetic nervous system to take over. Your parasympathetic nervous system is the “rest and digest” encourager, which allows your body to relax and heal.
Hydration: Staying hydrated is incredibly important during a parasite cleanse. Dehydration slows down your organs of elimination, like your lymphatic system, and keeps toxins trapped in your body longer. Add some trace minerals and lemon to your water for additional benefit.
