Health Alert 147
Have you ever worked out after a night of drinking? You can smell the alcohol seeping out of your pores. This is evidence of detoxing through exercise. The more you exercise the more efficient perspiration becomes.
In this letter, you’ll learn why sweating is more than just a means to cool your body. It’s the best way to purge your body of accumulated toxins. You’ll learn how to use your P.A.C.E. program to not only burn fat and strengthen your heart, but to detox as well.
P.A.C.E.: The Fast Lane to Detox
If you are a regular Health Alert reader, you’ve read how to use your program of Progressively Accelerating Cardiopulmonary Exertion (P.A.C.E.) for burning fat and strengthening your heart. Now detox is a 3rd reason to get moving 20 minutes every other day.
The critical issue when using exercise for detoxification is to work up a good sweat. Working up a sweat will rid your body of many toxins. P.A.C.E. works very well for this. The principles of short duration and progressively increasing intensities allows for quickly adapting to high levels of exertion. I have never perspired so quickly and heavily as when I condition myself with P.A.C.E.
Hundreds of my patients are using it with great results. Tom Dzurko, a subscriber to our newsletter recently wrote me thanking me for the program. He said he wouldn’t mind if I passed his words on to you:
“Got the chance to do my first P.A.C.E. workout on the elliptical cross trainer.
WOW! I have never achieved that kind of workout before! Heart rate was the highest I have ever seen. Calorie meter was incinerated, and the distance was more than I ever achieved before. I have never worked up a sweat like that ever.”
P.A.C.E. Yourself in 10 Minutes a Day
Make a commitment to 20 minutes of exercise every other day and you will realize your fitness goals not just this year, but for the rest of your life. You will also realize the cheapest and most natural way to detoxify your body.
Chose one or more activities you enjoy. My favorites are swimming, bicycling, walking, and using an elliptical machine. Review Health Alert 28 for specific details of designing your own P.A.C.E. program.
Here are a few other tips to make your exercise more efficient detoxification:
- Drink plenty of water before, during, and after you exercise.
- Wear loose-fitting clothing of natural fibers that breathe.
- Skip the deodorant, so your sweat glands are not inhibited.
- Take a hot shower afterwards.
