The Oil Change for Your BodyThe "Oil Change" for your body
by Dr. h.c. Peter Jentschura
Just as every car needs oil change, our body also requires purification. Especially for high-stamina sportsmen, it is important to get “the sand” out of the system and to refuel after tough conditions. For athletes there is often an over-accumulation of carbonic acids, lactic acids, acetic acids, and uric acids; coupled with an acidic diet consisting of much sugar, sweets, white flour products, soft drinks, coffee, fast foods and animal products. This results in hyperacidity, which decreases overall health and well-being.
Acids slow down our power and our capacity to regenerate, as they consume vital substances like minerals, which are essential in the regeneration process. Our metabolism has to neutralize the excess acids and waste products with our own vital alkaline substances. If these vital alkaline substances are not abundant in our diet, our body’s’ own reserves– such as skin, hair, teeth, bones, joints, and tendons– will be “targeted”. This quickens the wear out process. Additionally formed neutral salts will be deposited as waste products, which create a bottleneck in our excretory organs. Performance declines and increased risks of injuries are inevitable.
The key to maximum regeneration and permanent productivity is through internal cleansing and purification. For the body, detoxification always occurs in 3 steps, which we will refer to as a "triple jump of purification":
1. Removing waste products
Herbal teas, especially those designed specifically for removing waste products, reactivate deposited acids. Start with a small amount of tea in the beginning, and then increase step by step. Everything that is soluble by tea has to be metabolized in the end.
2. Neutralization and Removal of Acidity
Our body needs the whole spectrum of vital nutrients derived from plant foods like vegetables, salads, sprouts, and seeds in order to remove the freed acids. These plant foods optimize the natural systems and enzymes for de-acidification and are essential for energy production, regeneration, and increased efficiency. They take care of strong muscles, stable tendons and joints as well as strong bones.
3. Elimination of Acidity
Finally the soluble acids have to be eliminated. In this process the skin plays a central role with its countless sweat glands and sebaceous glands. The substances that our kidneys, intestines, and lungs are not able to eliminate can be eliminated through the skin with alkaline body care. Alkaline baths and foot baths, peelings, and massages have all proven to be extremely effective in the purification process. They also have the added benefit of making the skin velvety soft and smooth, and able to eliminate effectively.
The result of the "oil change" is a revitalized, taut and beautiful body—both internally and externally.
