Did you know that your body has a daily cleansing cycle?
It actually never stops working for us. Every exhaled breath is an act of elimination of toxic gases. The skin exudes some small amount of wastes continuously. But there is one time in each day when the body heightens its eliminative processes. This time is, roughly, from four o’clock in the morning until twelve o’clock noon.
The body’s stepped up elimination during this time is evidenced in many ways. A particularly toxic person may have a furred tongue upon arising. Hunger will not be in evidence. But, if the body is fed just the same, the eliminative processes are depressed though the tongue may still remain somewhat furred.
The body passes through rather distinct cycles daily.
These are roughly as follows:
- 4:00 a.m. to 12:00 Noon. — Eliminative = Detox and waste removal.
- 12:00 Noon. to 8:00 p.m. — Alimentary = Nourishment or sustenance. Your digestive tract is also called your alimentary canal.
- 8:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. — Assimilative = The process of absorbing nutrients beyond the tight junctions of the small intestine that enters general circulation.
In view that few studies of these phases of physiological activity have been made, little is known about them. The information presented here comes from studies made in Switzerland. These cycles are consistent, more or less, with the way things are with healthy humans who observe the natural norm of working days and sleeping nights. Thus we eat when hungry. This is followed by body assimilation and, upon completion, the body turns its energies to elimination of wastes.
