How to remove neurotoxins and strengthen your senses

We listed the ways nerves can be damaged. Today, we focus on nerve care.

This is a two-step process. First, you need to detoxify your body, then your nerves need nourishment. The detoxification process works through the body’s natural organs of excretion: lungs, kidneys, bowels and skin.

LUNGS: Perform pranayam in fresh air, surrounded by greenery. Pranayam relaxes and calms the nervous system. According to Ayurveda, blocked air circulation in the lower body can result in problems of excretion, fertility and ovaries.

SKIN: The skin is the largest organ of elimination. After a detoxifying massage with medicated mud, take a full body steam bath to further cleanse the channels.

LIVER: Milk thistle, a very powerful herb, helps the liver break down and rid pesticides from the body. These are excreted via the bowels.

BOWELS: Mix a teaspoon of triphala powder with a teaspoon of wheat bran and drink it in warm water every night. To strengthen intestinal health with the help of friendly bacteria, introduce probiotics into your diet. For a deep cleanse of the stomach and lower intestine, try panchakarma’s vaman and virechan medical purging and enema under the supervision of an ayurvedic doctor. Follow with a khichri made with organic ghee, rice and moong dal.

KIDNEYS: Burdock root is a kidney cleanser.

 

HERBS THAT HELP

Chlorella: An algae that rids the body of toxic metals.

Cilantro: Detoxifies the body of metals.

NERVE NOURISHMENT Make these a part of your diet: Virgin oils. Nuts and dry fruits like almonds, walnuts, pine nuts and figs.

Organic ghee or white butter once or twice a day with meals.

Tonics like ginko biloba, jatamansi and kava. REDUCE EXPOSURE TO NERVE TOXINS

Avoid: Hair spray. Hair colour. Cleaning sprays.
