In theory, detoxification diets sound good in that they want you to feel better, eat healthier and purge your body of toxins (chemical, poison or other substances) that are harmful to your health. Some even provide a jump start toward nutritional awareness, as well as a significant—and often temporary—weight loss. In reality, they are generally narrow in their nutritional focus, may have harmful side effects (diarrhea, fatigue, muscle loss, potassium loss, dehydration, others), and are not a long-term solution to better health.
I cannot recommend one plan over another since everyone’s medical condition and current state of health is different. Even healthy adults should first check with their physician to ensure their bodies are up to the challenge. If side effects occur, they will be better able to understand the situation and take measures to correct the problem(s). And, pregnant or lactating woman, children, and those with kidney, liver or heart disease, are best advised to avoid detox plans and consult a registered dietitian.
Detoxification diets, just like other types of diets, vary in their approach. While some limit a person to filtered or distilled water for a day or two of fasting, others may have their own special concoctions (lemon juice, herbs, high fiber, others) and allow a narrow range of fruit, vegetables, nutritional drinks and vitamins. Some even advise laxatives, enemas or colonics in an attempt to rid the body of toxins. These diets can last several days or several weeks. Solid foods are often discouraged during the majority of the diet, and are slowly reintroduced when the detox phase is completed.
Many proponents of detox diets support the view that our bodies are exposed to and accumulate toxins in everyday life. This may occur from the foods we eat (highly processed or others containing chemicals, preservatives, hormones, antibiotics, etc.), liquids we drink (refined sugars, artificial sweeteners, chemicals, other additives), air we breathe (air pollutants), cosmetics we use, and the indoor or outdoor environments in which we live and work. As a result, they theorize the toxins end up accumulating in our bodies (liver, skin, hair, fatty tissue, digestive, lymph and other systems), leading to a loss of energy, health problems (acne, arthritis, depression, headaches, others) and a decreased quality of life. So, their hope is to help a person feel better by utilizing various (and scientifically unproved) methods to rid our bodies of these potentially harmful substances.
However, it is important to know that our bodies have their own built-in ways of dealing with these exposures. In most instances our colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph glands and skin have the ability to filter, neutralize or eliminate these toxins. And, by consistently eating a healthier mixture of fresh fruits, vegetables, complex carbohydrates containing fiber, and protein (fish, lean meats, poultry, soy products, etc.) in the proper amounts, you are fueling up for a better state of health.
But that’s not all. By adding adequate amounts of water, stress reducing regimes such as Yoga and meditation, hobbies that you enjoy, nourishment for your soul (spiritual beliefs, walks in nature, etc.), as well as enough sleep so you won’t be sleep deprived, and you have your own natural way to live a fitful and healthier life. And that, my friend, is the true way to “detox” your body.
The work of Environmental Science describes the environment, interprets the impact of human actions (anthropogenic effects) on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and develops strategies for restoring ecosystems. In addition, environmental scientists help planners develop and construct buildings, transportation corridors, and utilities that protect water resources and reflect efficient and beneficial land use
Since most environmental issues deal with human activities, study of economics, law and social sciences are often applied in conjunction with environmental science.
Environmental science encompasses issues such as climate change, conservation, biodiversity, water quality, groundwater contamination , soil contamination, use of natural resources, waste management, sustainable development, disaster reduction, air pollution, and noise pollution.
While the environment has been studied for at least as long as there has been science, the recent interest in putting the pieces of understanding together to study environmental systems has come alive as a substantive, active field of scientific investigation starting in the 1960s and 1970s. This has been driven by the need for a large multi-disciplined team to analyze complex environmental problems, the arrival of substantive environmental laws requiring specific environmental protocols of investigation, and growing public awareness of a need for action in addressing environmental problems.
Can you give me any life advice?
Here are some:
>>Every person has some bad habits, weaknesses or weirdness. You
won't know until you spend much time with them. However, despair not, some of these make them rather unique or interesting. Learning to tolerate them makes us stronger individuals. So just smile, laugh, etc and accept that this is Life.
>>Be actively involved in a couple of meaningful hobbies that can be shared with a few friends, relatives, colleagues. One great way to spend time in a healthy way, reduce stress or depression.
>>Work hard during the weekdays in whatever pursuits, job, etc you are in, and let your hair down during the week-end. Another way to
be happy or to avoid insanity.
>>Acquire some of these qualities/characteristics--focus, passion, sincerity, responsibility, willingness to share, initiative, humility, friendliness and diligence. They are powerful traits that bring positive results to any relationship, career, etc.
>>Do daily reading to acquire an awareness and general knowledge of current affairs, health, safety, some sports or entertainment, etc. They make great topics for opening up conversations with strangers, acquaintances and friends.
>>If you drive, the safe and generally ideal speed of a car is 90-115kph. A head-on collision with another vehicle travelling in the opposite direction or with a tree or building, at speeds beyond 130kph results in certain death or serious disabilities. Even with safety belts or air-bags available, there is a minimum chance of survival. Bodies have been crushed or thrown out through the windshields. Statistics and experiments have proven this.
>>Never court or marry a beauty queen, unless she has proven to have positive inner qualities. Or you are wealthy enough to support/satisfy her in emotional, moral or material ways.
>>Life will always throw us many moments of loneliness and boredom. It is up to us, our ideas and positive attitude, to make it meaningful and interesting. A sin or two won't harm the intellect or emotions, neither would one be sent to Hell. I really don't know where the hell this place is, nor believe that any god would be so mean to have created it! ;-(
Hope some of the tips would help in changing your life in a most enjoyable, safe and fulfilling way. Best of luck! :-)))
