BOTANICAL SPA THERAPY: Whole Body Detoxification

Updated:  March 3, 2020

botanicalspatherapyebook

Every day provides you with many opportunities for a ‘healthier you’.

Pamper yourself with botanical spa therapy baths for ‘a healthier you’.  Add your favourite music, naturally scented beeswax candle (no synthetic candles or scents), your favourite beverage and book and relax while your body detoxifies.

The greatest gains that I made in my health recovery from body pollutiontoxicant induced loss of tolerance (TILT) and depression came from whole body detoxification using the botanical spa herbal therapy that I designed. I recommend whole body herbal detoxification baths that I have developed to my clients as a first step for all health challenges and they are amazed at the results. Botanical spa therapy herbal baths use your skin, your body’s largest organ, to detoxify your body.

Are some of your symptoms related to body pollution? If your olfactory bulb is offended by smells (you cannot stand the smell of scents even natural ones) or you have lost your sense of smell then you are probably showing the signs of body pollution and toxicant induced loss of tolerance (TILT).

Your body has a pretty amazing detoxification system which when working properly should be able to efficiently detoxify you.  The challenge is that we live in a world full of synthetic chemical pollutants and mass doses of natural toxicants that can overwhelm our detox pathways. Body pollution, which we all have, even as newborns,  interferes with the body’s normal healthy communication and signalling processes required for healthy body function including immunosurveillance, immunoresponse and tumor suppression.

“Chemicals have replaced bacteria and viruses as the main threat to health.  The diseases we are beginning to see as the major causes of death in the latter part of (the 1900’s) and into the 21st century are diseases of chemical origin.” 

Dr. Dick Irwin, Toxicologist, Texas A&M University www.lesstoxicguide.ca/index.asp

Your liver and detoxification pathways may at times when over burdened, need some extra help to eliminate body pollution.  Read my blog post MAINTAINING HEALTHY LONGEVITY: Keep Your Liver Happy in the Midst of Toxins, Distress and Happy Hour to learn more.

The pictures above displays some of my apothecary herb collection.  My study of the medicinal benefits of herbs while I was striving to recover my health, brought me the greatest gift.  After many trial and error detoxification strategies, mostly designed to be consumed; I had a light bulb moment one day while taking a bath. In my studies to become a nutritional consultant it was clear there were many body parts and systems involved in the detoxification process.  As a reviewed what I had tried so far to regain my health and the medicinal properties of herbs that I was drinking, I thought, ‘if my skin is my largest organ, why not use it to detoxify me more thoroughly?’ ‘What would happen if I used the medicinal herbs in a bath tea’?  Well the results were amazing.   The herbal bath tea mix was combined with sea salt, baking soda and apple cider vinegar.  You can learn about the individual detoxification properties of the botanical spa therapy bath ingredients in my book.  You will find the botanical spa therapy herbal bath recipe and detailed therapy instructions in Chapter 6, Detoxify, of my book and the Botanical Spa Therapy e-book.

YOUR BODY CAN HEAL ITSELF: Follow My Road Map to Get There

Featured

bodymindspiritwpwbhealth-map

Sometimes I forget how ill I really was. The forgetting is a blessing for sure!

I am revisiting my multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), toxicant induced loss of tolerance (TILT), environmental illness (EI), chronic fatigue (CF), multiple food allergies, irritable bowel, depression, seasonal affected disorder (SAD), stress sensitization and spasmodic dysphonia ‘past diagnoses’ today.  I am often reminded about how severely ill and affected I was by these conditions when I get inquires from all over the world asking for help from those still suffering.

All of the preceding diagnoses (plus more) were given to me in the past. I suffered severely for many years and I now have good health and feel good. I can eat all foods and be safe in previously toxic environments, obviously avoiding those that everyone should where possible. Like all humans, I share their vulnerability to the challenges of microbes, ‘wear and tear’ to body parts and life’s stressors.

On my journey to good health I tried many strategies, always looking for ‘the cure’.  Like many people I read every article about the latest supplement and cures and spent a lot of money on trying them.  From today’s view point it is clear to see that one cannot regain their health by merely supplementing/adding on something; one must start at the very beginning. The holistic health approach to regaining health is a series of natural strategies that help your body and mind to ‘peel back the layers’ of past physical, mental and emotional health challenges to allow healing.

One of the most impactful strategies in my health recovery was a series of herbal baths which I used to detox my body pollution, a major health challenge which most of us have even newborns.

Body Burden:  The Pollution in Newborns 

“Chemicals have replaced bacteria and viruses as the main threat to  health.  The diseases we are beginning to see as the major causes of death in the latter part of (the 1900’s) and into the 21st century are diseases of chemical origin.” 

Dr. Dick Irwin, Toxicologist, Texas A&M University www.lesstoxicguide.ca/index.asp

During my recovery I had tried many detox remedies with minimal results. Through my studies of herbs I learned about the potential detoxification and healing abilities of herbs. I used that information to create a ‘botanical spa therapy’ herbal bath recipe.  My clients have had incredible health improvements, like I have, as a result of taking a series of these baths. I now recommend this as a first step to anyone who asks me for advice.  Whole body detoxification requires a two step detoxification process, stop adding to your body pollution and remove your existing body pollution. You can find the recipe and instructions for botanical spa therapy herbal baths in my book below. Make you botanical spa therapy baths well deserved ‘spa events’, add spa music, an natural scented beeswax candle, and a new book.

CILANTRO: A Powerful Heavy Metal Remover

cilantro

Cilantro is one of those herbs that you either love or hate. When I was first introduced to cilantro I highly detested the taste. Now that I know it has powerful health benefits – I have acquired a taste for it. Research shows that cilantro is a powerful heavy metal and toxin remover. The chemical compounds in cilantro bind to the heavy metals, loosening them from the tissues, blood and organs allowing for easy elimination from the body. If you live in or commute through an area with air pollution or regularly eat fish – cilantro is a necessary ingredient to add to your diet.

According to the observations made by the internationally recognized medical researcher, Dr. Yoshiaki Omura, all cancer cells have mercury in them.

Benefits of Cilantro:

  • Powerful binding agent to heavy metals (e.g. mercury) and environmental toxins
  • Oils in cilantro aid digestion by promoting the production of  digestive enzymes, acids and juices.
  • Powerful anti-inflammatory
  • Antibacterial (salmonella)
  • Antioxidant
  • Disinfectant
  • Antiseptic
  • Antifungal
  • Hormone balancing
  • Blood glucose regulator
  • Boosts liver function
  • Immune system booster

Using Cilantro:

The reported health benefits of cilantro are based on using it raw. Organically grown cilantro is your best choice. Make sure to add it to your salads, dishes, soups and smoothies just before serving. It has a powerful taste that may take some getting used to for some people; so start with a small amount finely chopped and well blended.

In lieu of having a bunch of cilantro on hand at all times, you can add a few drops of cilantro essential oil to your recipes.  This is a cost effective way to have cilantro on hand at all times.  I add cilantro to my tartar sauce every time I have fish.  Contact me at elisabethlhines@gmail.com for information on locating quality cilantro essential oil.

Cilantro Pesto

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup almonds, cashews, or other nuts
  • 1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves and soft stems or 15 drops of cilantro essential oil
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea Salt to taste

Cilantro Dressing

  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped or 4 drops of cilantro essential oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon spicy mustard
  • 3/4 cup organic olive oil
Enjoy!

DETOXIFICATION: A Natural Body Process That May Need Some Help

“GOD made the earth yield healing herbs, which the prudent man should not neglect”.

Ecclesiastes 38:4

herbs

Detoxification is a naturally occurring process that takes place in the body automatically on an ongoing basis. So why is everyone considering detox strategies?  Should you? The finely tuned orchestra of detection, identification, communication and responding that are critical for optimum and effective detoxification can become compromised.  Interference, malfunction or damage resulting from multiple sources, including stressors, can seriously hamper natural detoxification.

There are many self-help strategies that you can implement to promote natural detoxification. I list these in my book, THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION. Adding herbs to your diet is one way to encourage detoxification of toxins and heavy metals from your body.

  • Horsetail binds with lead
  • Bladderwrack and turmeric bind with aluminum
  • Cilantro, chlorella and turmeric bind with mercury

Additional herbs bind with developmental toxins, hormone disruptors and carcinogenic chemicals. My research and study of herbs have provided me with insights into the right mix of herbs to synergistically remove body pollution common to your environments. With this information I have formulated BOTANICAL SPA THERAPY HERBAL BATH TEAS recipe; which use the body’s largest organ the skin, to promote detoxification through binding of harmful, foreign toxics. The bath tea approach can be more effective than taking internal supplements and cleanses. If the body’s detoxification systems, including the liver are compromised, the herbal bath tea method is the better choice.   Make your own herbal bath tea bags using the recipe in my book. Learn more about detoxification by visiting my webpage www.mybodycanhealitself.ca/detox.htm.

Essential Cleanse 2

Make your own herbal bath teas using the recipe in:

Consult your regular healthcare provider before using herbs therapeutically. It is important to be supervised by someone knowledgeable about body pollution as you transition through assisted detoxification. There may be contraindications due to health status, medications or other factors. Do not stop taken prescribed medication.

ENJOY better health today!

Thank you!
