The end result of detoxing is relief from stress. Whether we believe our organs need help eliminating toxins or not, most people agree that a change from our usual diet and a fresh look at our health lifts a weight from our minds.
Annie Cap, a British author has written a book suggesting that what comes out of our mouths has equal significance to what we put in them. The diet of food that we eat can be changed as we become more educated about vitamins, minerals, toxins and other elements of our diet. But the beliefs we have been brought up with and the thoughts that pass through our heads every day can cripple any efforts we make towards living a healthy life.
Annie Cap believes that hearing the words and thoughts that we use every day can reveal the harm that negative thought patterns do and can begin to reverse the negative effects. Here’s a quote from a recent article in the Daily Mail:
“We live in an age in which everyone is concerned or even slightly obsessed with what they put into their bodies in the form of food or drink.
We’ve all heard ‘You are what you eat’ — and many of us probably have the book — but shouldn’t we be just as concerned about what comes out of our mouths as what goes into them?
The words you use show where your mind is focused. Your language points to the reasons why you perform as you do. It shows you what you believe, what you think is possible and, ultimately, what experiences you are likely to encounter.
I believe that across British society we are suffering from an epidemic of self-attacking thoughts. Many people spend their entire lives silently telling themselves that they’re stupid, fat, rubbish or boring.
Hour after hour, they inform themselves that they’re too old, no good and not clever enough. They repeat phrases such as ‘You can’t have everything’, ‘No pain, no gain’, and even ‘Let’s not get our hopes up’.
Even at a wonderful moment of success, there are many who will be smiling, but inwardly thinking: ‘Pride comes before a fall.’ I call these your ‘iceberg words’ — they represent the ‘tip of the iceberg’ of what’s going on inside your mind.
With these constant mantras going in, we manage to hypnotize ourselves into believing the worst about ourselves.”
