Colon: e colon is the final place in the body where waste (food residue) travels before being eliminated. It is critical that bowel elimination happens daily. Kidneys: e kidneys filter out water-soluble wastes from the blood that flows to them from the liver. ese wastes are then stored in the bladder before elimination through the urine. Skin: As a protective covering, it keeps toxins from entering the body. Simultaneously, because of its size and area, it actually eliminates more cellular waste than the colon and kidneys combined. Blood: e blood that moves through the cardiovascular system is the key transportation system in the body, bringing nutrients and oxygen to the cells and flushing away waste products and toxins. Lymph: Lymph, a clear fluid filled with immune cells called lymphocytes, moves around the body in a series of vessels that parallel the paths of the veins. Lymph delivers nutrients as well as collects cellular waste and helps destroy pathogens. T he Seven Channels of Elimination We need to nourish and support all of our channels of elimination as oen as we can. Doing this requires modifications to your lifestyle and diet, which help reduce your exposure to toxins and aid in your body's expulsions of current toxins hiding out deep in the body. Lungs: e lungs dispel toxins with every exhalation. Chief among these toxins is carbon dioxide, a by- product of respiration, the body's release of energy. e muscular contractions involved in breathing also help to transport lymph and blood, which also convey toxins. e lungs' lining of mucus and cilia (small hairs that capture airborne particles) help prevent toxins from entering the body. Liver: In today's polluted world, health researchers believe the added toxic burden on our livers contributes to chronic fatigue, high cholesterol, irritable bowel syndrome, cognitive difficulties and high blood pressure. A major organ of elimination, the liver serves as the manager of the entire detoxification process in the body. Page 50 | Abby's Magazine -
