We are excretion machines. We take in food and liquids, process them, use what we need, and excrete/eliminate everything that is left. Hopefully. Sometimes, we take in stuff that the body can’t process. If the body doesn’t know what to do with it and doesn’t remove it, it will put it in storage (such as fat). Other times, there is a blockage. The stuff doesn’t get stored, doesn’t get eliminated, and it just sits in the gut. This is not good if the stuff sitting there is toxic, especially if you have damage in your intestinal lining (leaky gut).
What do you do when that happens? For some, the solution is a purge. They want to clean the system out. This comes with both positive and negative benefits. If you are interested, do your research.
A purge for your body may be beneficial, but have you ever considered these words from a great French philosopher…
Get a purge for your brain. It will do better than for your stomach.Michel de Montaigne
What needs to be purged?
- Old belief systems that are no longer valid.
- Too much clutter clogging and slowing down your internal computer. Link: Remove the Clutter
- The truly useless information.
- The garbage you see and hear from TV, social media, news, and radio.
- Needless fear and anxiety.
Imagine all the stuff you take in mentally. Much of it may be good. But how much of it is toxic? Without a good filtration system in place, you could be letting all the crazy in. And if you are not purging that out of your head, you might be worse off than having a leaky gut?
