Chuck Norris' 12 ways to detox your body

Mr. Norris, after a month of eating holiday sweets immersed in sugars and saturated fats, I’m ready to flush my body’s system for a new year. Any advice on how to detoxify? – The Florida Filter
Detoxify? That is a big word that basically means “get rid of the toxins in your body.” And there are solid reasons for detoxifying as we enter the new year that go far beyond holiday binging.
For starters, Mike Adams, aka “Health Ranger,” an outspoken consumer health advocate and award-winning investigative journalist, reported, “Today, more than 95 percent of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.”
According to Dr. Don Colbert, who is the author of many health books, we all have toxins in our bodies. Believe it or not, there are about 80,000 chemicals registered in the United States, with 2,000 being added each year. They are used for everything from food additives to prescriptions drugs, supplements, personal products – such as makeup and lotions – cleaning supplies and lawn care.
Most people are aware that our food supply is polluted by herbicides, pesticides and chemicals, but not everyone knows that up to 2,100 chemicals are present in most municipal water supplies.
And it is nothing short of criminal that an American Red Cross sample study of babies’ umbilical cords discovered an average of 287 contaminants, of which 180 are carcinogenic.
Some ailments caused or exacerbated by these toxins include chronic fatigue, heart disease, memory loss, premature aging, skin disorders, arthritis, hormone imbalances, anxiety, headaches, emotional disorders, cancers and autoimmune diseases.
The first thing we must realize about detoxifying is that our bodies are continuously filtering out contaminates and corruptible elements. Some of the major filters in our bodies include our kidneys, liver, lungs, intestines, urinary tract, skin and sweat glands.
Chris Kilham, Fox News integrative alternative medicine hunter and global researcher promoting plant-based medicines, explained last week: “Our bodies (naturally) detox all the time. If we didn’t, we’d die.”
Though we cannot completely avoid toxins, we can reduce the number of contaminants we put into our bodies and ensure optimal health and operation of our filtering organs.
Here is some expert advice from Kilham, Colbert and others on how to detox your body:
God created an awesome filtering and waste management system in our bodies, but our organs are being tapped out and damaged by the extensive use of chemicals and contaminates throughout our society.
If we want to preserve these amazing human machines, there’s no getting around it; we must better guard the entry points in our bodies from toxins and other adversaries and then optimize our organs to filter out the bad that infiltrates our bodies’ systems.
In short, if we plan to be around to see and enjoy future New Year’s celebrations, we must reset our bodies and detoxify!
