The human body is a perfect but complex system, designed to run on food, and eliminate any waste that cannot contribute to our health.
Yet, the modern era is unfortunately rich in unhealthy and processed foods, which contain certain toxins and substances which remain longer in the body, and eventually buildup in the fat cells.
The body easily eliminates water-soluble toxins through the urine and sweat, but fat-soluble toxins are not that simple to remove, and they end up accumulated in the fat cells.
According to Power Of Positivity:
“Water-soluble toxins are those expelled from the body via the blood and kidneys. Our body has the capability of eradicating water-soluble toxins effectively via urination.
Fat-soluble toxins are a different story altogether. These toxins which include food additives, pesticides, pollutants, preservatives, and even metals, must undergo a chemical transformation in order to be eradicated from the body. For this to process to be optimally effective, it is important that components of the gastrointestinal system – particularly, the liver – are healthy and functioning properly.”
“The National Health Adipose Tissue Survey (NHATS) sampled fat cells in the US [starting in 1967 and concluding in the late 1980s] and found over 20 toxic chemicals in a regionally diverse sample of the population.
Since the green revolution and better living through chemicals in the 1940s, many fat-soluble chemicals have been introduced into the environment and thus the food chain.
Many of these are foreign to the detoxification pathways of the body, and so the body is unsure how to respond and will store them in the fat cells. If the toxins are in the body for a short period of time then it is unlikely that they will do much harm, but when they are stored in the fat cells, their effect on the body is not positive.
As they continue to accumulate, the oxidation and free radical damage that they cause can lead to metabolic and systemic dysfunctions.”
The most common symptoms of toxic fat storage in the body include:
- Skin issues
- Digestive Issues
- Swelling or Extra Weight Around the Belly Area
- Joint stiffness
- Swollen Hands or Feet
If you experience these symptoms or eat foods that contain pesticides, preservatives, additives, pollutants, heavy metals, or other environmental chemicals, you need to occasionally detoxify the fat cells.
Here are some useful tips to help you:
— You need to ensure a healthy digestive system, that will eliminate toxins easily. Start consuming ghee to help the body naturally burn fat, strengthen the immune system, and improve the healthy function of the digestive tract.
— You need to detoxify the liver in order to help its function to eliminate toxins
— Drink plenty of water and exercise regularly to keep the body hydrated and boost the function of the lymphatic system and the circulation of blood
Additionally, LiverDoctor.com advises:
“There are a few nutrients that can help clear toxins from your fat cells more quickly. The green pigment in green leafy vegetables, known as chlorophyll, has the ability to bind with a variety of toxic substances and remove them from your body with your bowel movements.
You can eat more organic leafy greens and grow a herb garden – thyme, basil, oregano, parsley, arugula, cilantro are all excellent sources of chlorophyll and antioxidants and natural antibiotics.
The main compound in green tea, EGCG, is also a powerful weapon when it comes to relieving your toxic load. It helps reduce your body’s burden of polychlorinated biphenyls and other pollutants.
It’s also essential to boost levels of your “master antioxidant”, glutathione which is made in the liver. People who show high levels of pollutants in their bodies often have depleted stores of this antioxidant.”
