Turbo Detox: Top 5 Most Powerful Detox Protocols

Detox, Fitness, Health, Uncategorised By November 22, 2021 Tags: No Comments

Hold onto your Oh Shiznit Handles!

Get ready to be a little uncomfortable at times (detox symptoms). . .

but you already don’t feel so great anyway, so what do you have to lose?

(hint: inflamation, indigestion, joint discomfort, fatigue, etc would be some nice things to lose)

When I tap into something that I feel is cleansing my body and bringing me to a different level of awareness/fitness/wellbeing, I test the limits of the symptoms I can tolerate to get the toxins out as quickly as possible.

This article is a high level overview of the most powerful detox protocols I’ve experienced on the healing journey that will most likely get updated with more detail as I have more time to spend on it. For now it’s important to just get the info out there.

Let’s also get it out of the way to say . . .

I’m not offering any medical advice . . .

just the “pudding proofs” of my experiences going on a quest to find health, peace, balance, and well being. Take from it what you may, seek advice from the people you trust regarding your health and wellness, and most importantly. . . Listen to your body.

The first thing that made me pause and realize I had stumbled upon the truth was Urine Therapy. After 10 years of trying at the very least hundreds – if not into the thousands – of natural health products, I was tested by an Ayurvedic practitioner and found to be CHOCK FULL of PARASITES and HEAVY METALS!!!

This was shortly after having discovered and having begun urine therapy. The deep knowing that my teeth were now on a path to healing themselves after lifelong challenges permeated my being with the first sip…

Leading me into the first healing modality . . .

1 – Distilled Liquids

Drinking distilled liquids, and plenty of them, is a great way to detox. Any time you find water in nature, or water is re/created in nature, it’s in a structured/distilled state.

Precipitation(snow, rain, dew, etc), Distilled Water, Water in raw fruits and veggies, Golden Elixir of Life (Urine)

The golden number to make a habit is a gallon per day or more. Think of a flowing river; when it’s not flowing very fast, sediment and silt gather on the bottom, but when it’s raging from a storm, anything that may have gathered gets washed out and you have only clean clear large rocks that remain on the bottom.

Regardless of the type of detoxing you’re doing, proper hydration is doing yourself a big favor and showing some major self-love.

Some more info on distilled liquids

2 – Fulvic / Humic Acid – The BOO – Get Magnetized!

Fulvic / Humic acid is a powerful magnet for toxins in my experience. I liken it to Bentonite Clay in some ways, with the way it sticks to dirt and toxins. Toxins have a positive charge and things like fulvic/humic acid and bentonite clay have a negative charge, drawing them out like magnets.

There are different types and strengths of magnets and likewise different levels off toxin scrubbers. So far in my experience, the stickiest most powerful toxin scrubber is the BOO (Black Oxygen Organics Fulvic/Humic acid).

Something that I feel about the BOO is that it not only pulls toxins powerfully, but also provides nutrients and building blocks for our bodies and cells.

I also feel these types of magnetic detoxifiers increase circulation and blood flow, which is always beneficial to health.

3 – DMSO – Super Anti-Oxidant and Penetrant

DMSO is a powerful anti-Oxidant and deep penetrant capable of crossing the blood brain barrier.

scavenges free radicals

increases blood flow

decreases pain

penetrates the blood brain barrier

The thing I noticed with DMSO, other than the lovely aroma, was my eyesight improving. I noticed my eyesight improving before I looked it up and discovered it was a common side effect, so I know it wasn’t the placebo effect in action.

I drink it, I have several 70% creams mixed with Aloe and some other herbs. It get’s rubbed on after my aged Orin rub down before getting some sun medicine. It gets rubbed on sore muscles / joints if there are any. It get’s appled to any cuts/injuries.

Here’s an article I found on FitTipDaily with some more info until I put together my own page on the subject.

4 – Zalmanov Pine Gum Turpentine Emulsion – Capillary Action!

It’s all about the FLOW baby! This was another product I ordered and let sit around for 6-12 months before actually trying it.

The basic concept is that capillaries die off and shut down and then certain cells and tissues stop getting proper blood and energetic support and that’s what causes aging.

Zalmanov Turpentine Emulsion baths restore capillary function and thus theoretically reverse the effects of aging.

Here’s the best source I’ve found for info on the emulsion baths. https://zalmanov.info/

I don’t know that I can say anything specific about the Zalmanov emulsion experience other than that it felt like it SuperCharged everything I was already doing that much more as it was one of the last protocols I implemented.

Everyone pretty much agrees that sweating is an awesome detox, and this definitely made me sweat, so that’s a pretty good sign to me some awesome detox is going on.

5 – Bone Flesh and Cartilage powder – Bone Knit

This is a product I use by Dr. Christopher. It has several ingredients, and one that shouldn’t be used internally according to the FDA. Ultimately, if there’s any natural plant or herb or seed that’s restricted by any regulatory organization, that’s something I want to try, because it must be very healing. At least that’s been my experience when researching any plant that is restricted.

Again. . . I’m not promoting, or even suggesting, anyone else try what I’m trying. Just sharing my experience.

I tend to jump in with both feet and see what happens . . .

The first time I started using BF&C powder was after having participated in several Spartan Races and having had very sore feet during most of the races. Once I started having BF&C Tea about 30 minutes before the race started, NO MORE PAIN !!! Totally blew my mind.

I now have BF&C Tea most days taking a break here and there as a natural flow and cycle.

Dr. Christopher’s general philosophy from my inner-standing with most things is to:

  • cycle 6 days on 1 day off
  • cycle 6 weeks on 1 week off
  • cycle 6 months on 1 month off

This gives the body a chance to re-balance without the external input and also for you to get a sense of what it’s actually doing for you.

The ingredients are as follows:

  • White Oak Bark
  • Comfrey Root
  • Marshmallow Root
  • Mullein Leaf
  • Black Walnut Leaf
  • Gravel Root
  • Wormwood Herb
  • Lobelia Herb
  • Scullcap Herb

Each one of these ingredients is a powerhouse on it’s own.

There will always be a bag of BF&C powder in my medicine cabinet. Period.

The first thing I reach for with any type of pain.

Research the ingredients and decide for yourself.

Here are a few neat testimonials about Comfrey . . .

https://www.earthclinic.com/herbs/comfrey-editors-choice.html

What’s interesting about the testimonials on this site is much of it has been REDACTED because people in the natural healing arena find it wise not mention specific conditions for which there is a medication providing profit to the pharma industry.

Here’s a good article with some more info on internal vs external use to help make your own decisions . . .

6 – Bonus Foundational Medicine – Magnesium Oil

Magnesium Oil was the first product I would share with people as Healthy Keith. Having forgotten to be consistent with it and recently being reminded to do so when advising someone else to start the practice, magnesium oil is a foundational type of element of which most people find themselves deficient.

Simple test. Spray magnesium oil on your skin. If it itches, you’re pretty much low and could use a top up!

It’s great for sore / crampy muscles, it’s calming for anxiety and great for headaches, it makes many functions of the body more in balance and in the flow.

Bonus is that it’s super simple to make and very cost effective for the maintenance of your health and well being.

What have I discovered after all this Detox ?

The less food I eat, the better I feel.

We’re eating ourselves to Death.

Deep Breathing and Sunshine and Standing Barefoot on the Earth is much better nourishment than a chocolate chip muffin.

Our bodies are not meant to get burned by the Sun . . . It’s only because we have dirty blood unable to absorb the abundant energy.

The most powerful medicine I’ve experienced comes from within . . .

Our thoughts and intentions and vibration are ultimately what determine our state of being regardless of the supplements we’re taking.

Choosing to Feel the Feeling FIRST of Joy, Peace, Health, Abundance is the key.

I feel better and more fit with much less effort at 48 than I did at 18 when I was running 50-60 miles a week for x-country and working out in the weight room.

I feel like I have more testosterone flowing through my body and recover/heal more quickly than at any time in my life.

The best part . . . I already feel this amazing and know there are so many more levels of feeling awesome still ahead of me.

I’ve just tapped into the tip of the iceberg and things are opening up exponentially now.

It’s all actually very simple. The truth is never complicated.

Supercharged Elderberry Fennel Ginger beverage for immune support

Herbal Remedies, Organic, Recipe, Tea By February 8, 2021 Tags: , , , , , 1 Comment

I love Ginger! I love Elderberry! I can feel the healing spiciness soothing my throat just thinking about it!

So grateful for teas and their multitude of healing properties. Here’s one of my favorite alchemical combinations to have chillin’ in fridge for boosting he immune system all year long.

Recipe

  • 5 quarts – Water
  • 2/3 cup – Elderberries
  • 1/4 cup – Fennel Seeds
  • 1/4 cup – Coriander Seeds
  • 1 Tbsp – Cardamom Seeds
  • 2/3 cup – Ginger – thinly sliced/diced
  • 1 1/4 cup – Honey (this can be adjusted according to your taste)

Directions

Add 3 quarts/liters of water to a 5 quart or larger pot and bring to a boil.

Grind the dry ingredients – elderberries, fennel, coriander, and cardamom – and add them to the pot. I haven’t seen people say to grind the elderberries before cooking elsewhere, but I feel like it helps extract all the goodness.

Dice/slice the ginger thinly and also add to the pot. I appreciate using a mandolin slicer for this task.

Once it’s boiling I tend to let it simmer for 30-60 minutes. Add the extra 2 quarts when done to bring the temperature down before adding the honey. This also saves energy as you’re heating less water for the cooking process.

I use a measuring cup to add it to mason jars leaving some space at the top so I can scoop the mash from the bottom of the pot into the jars to continue marinating.

– The tea in my 5 qt pot after simmering for an hour –
One of the five mason jars I filled getting energized by the sun!

Would love to hear comments and experiences of anyone who tries the recipe.

Remember to breathe deeply today and dwell on some things you love about yourself!

Healing Foot Soak/Detox: Bentonite Clay and Epsom Salt

Detox, Health By December 1, 2019 No Comments

Bentonite clay is something I feel should be in everyone’s “Natural Medicine Chest”. A powerful healer and magnet for toxins, it also boosts blood flow for expeditious and miraculous healing.

The first time I witnessed the miracle of Bentonite Clay was when I accidentally stepped on my daughter’s big toe, bending it back so badly it swelled right up and she was walking on her heal the rest of the night. We had a Spartan Race to run in 3 days. Devastation. Racking my brain I recalled having ordered Bentonite Clay for the first time the week before. After a quick search revealed a plethora of testimonials, I went about mixing some mud. The bentonite mud was applied liberally (about 1/2 inch thick) and secured with paper towel and plastic wrap. She went to sleep and when I messaged her the next day from work about how her toe was doing, the response was, “Other than being very wrinkled from being wet, it’s as if I hadn’t even stepped on her toe!” Totally healed overnight! The swelling had gone down and she ran the Spartan Race 3 days later without noticing any pain from her injured toe. I was convinced!

Since that time I’ve ordered many bags of bentonite clay and take weekly baths/soaks with bentonite and epsom salt. I’ve also taken bentonite internally with psyllium husk to cleanse the system with powerful results. In this article, I’ll share a basic recipe for a detoxing/healing foot soak.

Foot Soak Recipe

1/2 cup Bentonite Clay
1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 cup Epsom Salt
6 quarts Hot Water ( or enough to fill foot soak bucket)

There are two methods I’m aware of. One is to mix the bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar separately and apply the mud to feet and let set on feet for 15 minutes before submerging in the hot Epsom salt water for another 20 minutes.

The other option is to just put everything in the bucket, blend as well as possible and then soak your feet for 20-30 minutes.

You can also mix some mud and leave it on overnight for additional healing/detox.

Please comment to share your experiences with the soak and the healing/benefit you observe.

How to Make Magnesium Oil – the Master Mineral

Uncategorised By August 24, 2016 No Comments

Magnesium oil is typically what I introduce people to first when spreading health and wellness.  It’s an easy sell.

Someone mentions an ache or a pain, sore or cramping muscle, anxiety, a headache, grey hair, odorous feet or underarms . . . there are countless opportunities to interject  “magnesium oil would likely provide some relief”.  Plus, it smells nice (at least the way I make it).

Presentation and formulation appear to be paramount to people being open to trying new things.  They want to be healthy, but not if it’s a bit too uncomfortable for moments.  My belief is you’ll find my method of preparation quite agreeable.

Background –

The standard recommendation for magnesium oil is to mix equal parts distilled water and magnesium flakes.  Obviously deficient, the first time I tried it full strength it did a little more than tingle, rinsing my arm with water vigorously to quell the burning sensation.  It didn’t help that I tried it on the tender inner forearm skin.  Testing on less sensitive skin areas first to gauge sensitivity is highly recommended.

I dialed it waaaay back from there to quarter strength and mixed it that way for quite some time.  Modified my formula again because it didn’t feel quite strong enough and mix about half strength now to portion into blue glass spray bottles.

What you Need – 

Magnesium Oil  –  1/2 cup
Distilled Water  –  1 1/4 cup
Essential Oils (optional)
Mixing Vessel (I use a mason jar)
Funnel
Spray Bottles

Buying vs DIY – You can always go to the health store or online to buy a bottle of magnesium oil, but personally would find that difficult to swallow considering the savings involved when mixing yourself, unless in a pinch and that’s all that’s available.  To each their own.

Essential Oil – From the beginning I’ve added essential oil to the bottles I create.  I find the aroma is pleasing and experiment a bit with different oils.  My standard formula is several drops each of cedarwood oil, lavendar oil, rosemary oil, and .  I add 2 drops of each per bottle.

Benefits – 

  • Reduced risk of heart attack and stroke
  • Excellent for muscle cramps and muscle soreness
  • Calming effect on the mood
  • Helps build strong bones and teeth
  • Promotes restful sleep (massage on feet before dream time)

Risks – Skin can itch/burn and feel quite irritated if you’re deficient in magnesium, especially in areas where the skin is tender like the inner forearms.

If the magnesium is irritating the skin,

  • it may be washed off with simple water.
  • Dilute the spray with distilled water until you build up enough magnesium in your system to reduce your reaction for a stronger concentration.

My Formula –

I use a 2 cup mason jar to mix with measurement marks on the side.

Anecdotes –

I decided during this article I’ll try to format for now of getting to the meat of things quickly, positioning more lengthy anecdotes toward the end for those who care to scroll.

I hope you enjoy my prose and point of view.

Hello world! An intro to Healthy Keith.

Fitness, Health, Herbal Remedies, Natural Remedies, Organic By September 22, 2015 No Comments

Who is Healthy Keith?

A man who has been called many things:  “Dr. Keith”, Life Coach, Herbalist, Father, Friend, Crazy, Generous . . .

I found the default “Hello world!” subject of the first post appropriate and amusing considering my career as a programmer.

The journey began a few years ago on a quest to fortify teeth and quell anxiety.  Sprouted bread and grass-fed butter became a staple and lemon balm capsules were taken for anxiety only to discover they also aided allergies.

The fitness/strength revolution began with an invitation to participate in a Spartan Race.  A runner when younger, I never appreciated the need for strength training and had the revelation fairly recently that strength training and flexibility are paramount to any fitness regimen.

Self diagnosed high-functioning Aspergers with low latent inhibition, so I absorb/analyze everything, distilling the truth and sharing it with those open to hearing it.

It all comes down to a desire to help and heal people, preferably using the “teaching to fish” model so nutritional awareness spreads like wildfire.

We also live busy lives, so I focus on identifying non intrusive habits to implement that don’t impact our lives other than to make them healthier and more awesome.  #IntegratedFitness

My hope is that people will learn how to heal themselves through proper nutrition, spread that knowledge, and live more fulfilling lives.  Everything is more fun when you’re fit!
