Oil Change! – Liver Detox Health

Liver Detox Health
Natural oils and fats are an important substance for the body and brain.

Healthy fats and oils are best sourced from eating whole natural foods as opposed to getting them from bottled oil products.

Eating fat foods in their original form (whole fruits) ensures that they go into the body ‘complete’ with all their associated natural substances intact and unaltered. These all help the body to absorb, digest and assimilate the oil fat properties. Isolated bottled oil products are not the same.
You can use good natural healthy saturated fat oils to push out the bad oils in the body. And overweight people can use good fats to replace the bad fats in their body in this way too.

Chole-sterol is an antioxidant and anti-fatty acid that protects against cancer and heart disease. It is manufactured by many cells in the body, not just the liver.
It’s place is in the cells and only becomes a problem, in the arteries for example, when it moves from the cells into the blood. Bad oils in the body help to create this problem too.
Cholesterol, both LDL and HDL are not the villain and it is more about having the right cholesterol in the right place rather than lowering it.
If you don’t change your oil regularly, cholesterol can oxidize and fats can go rancid in the body. Dandruff is an example of a rancid oil in the body.
Interestingly, a little exposure to the midday sun helps regulate our cholesterol and sweet fruits, particularly oranges, increase the production of good cholesterol, as do eggs.

Bottled oils
When an oil is extracted from a fruit or plant it is separated from the other compounds in that fruit that would help with the digestion and absorption of the oil fat. It is not exactly the same now, being refined. The further processing of the extracted oil will also have an effect on how usable it remains. When heated for example, some oils are altered chemically. Certain oils are more delicate than others and don’t last well when taken out of their natural bound state in the whole food. Many bottled oils are blended and mixed with other cheaper oils and are no longer 100% pure from the original extract. Bottled oils should be stored in glass, and of a dark colour as oils are affected by exposure to light and will degrade over time.
Oils should not be overheated as this alters them to become toxic in the body.
Bottled oils are second best to first generation fat oils from the original fruit or plant and are vulnerable to being degraded further.

Oils best avoided
• Flax seed oil – ages very quickly and deteriorates. Linoleum (floor covering) was made
from linseed oil (the old name for flax seed oil)
• Sunflower oil – breaks down too fast
• Fish oils – break down and go rancid much faster than any other oil and are not essential for
our body at all which was known a long time ago.
• Cooking oils – many cooking oils sold today are more of a plastic type substance than natural
oils and can be made even worse by overheating them.

One of the most damaging things for health and aging is putting bad oils, rancid or chemically altered oils, into the body.

 Good Oils
A good source of healthy oils for the body can be sourced from eating these fat fruits in the morning:
• Avocado – goes well with pine nuts
• Coconut – drink the water inside and/or eat the white flesh meat. 100% pure coconut oil can
last a long time though many are not pure being mixed with other oils. Pure coconut oil can
be heated to a high degree without altering it making it ideal for cooking with.
• Durian – a strong tasting fruit so can also be blended into a fruit smoothie.
• Olives and olive oil (look for oil that is dark and heavy, not light and clear)
• Nuts have good oils in them too and go very well with fruits in the morning.
• Butter and cream – both very good fats. Butter can be used liberally throughout the day.
• Clarified butter (Ghee) – an excellent fat
Clarified butter (the yellow butter fat) takes the cholesterol that hardens and is damaging in the body and removes it as the ‘yellow butter fat’ is good lubricatory cholesterol. It is the white factor of normal butter that causes trouble. When u clarify butter by making ghee you take out the bad cholesterol (hardening cholesterol) or ‘white fat’.
Butter/Ghee is a food that can be eaten at any time of day and can be heated to a high temperature without altering it which makes it ideal for cooking with. It is simple to make by melting butter and separating the yellow fat from the white fat. Ghee has a long history of use in India.

By getting your fats and oils from nature directly and unaltered it is hard to go wrong and this will protect you from the potentially damaging effects of bad or altered oils.

Pure coconut oil is good for you. It is the oil of the fruit so what grows in nature must be good for us as it is natural. Most coco oils in the shop are maybe 30-50% pure coco oil with some not so good other stuff added, to make more profit. Some of them taste pretty bad. Once you have tasted the real stuff you will know immediately by smell or taste if it is pure coco oil or not, which is the only thing you want to put into your body.
Pure coco oil is much more expensive than the poor quality ones so this is a guiding factor too.
Same with massage shops they mostly use cheap coco/chemical oil mix. Bring your own oil. What goes on the skin goes into the body. If you can’t eat it don’t put it on your skin.
Bad oils are very damaging to the body and will age you very quickly. Most cooking oils are more plastic than natural oil and are chemically altered again when heated to a high temperature.
Coco oil is one of the few exception to this as it can be heated to a high temp without altering despite being labeled wrongly in the food industry as an unstable oil.
Changing over from bad oils to goods oils is a big step towards your good health.
Natural oils are best eaten in their original form (first generation), ie. in the whole fruit (olive, avocado etc.). Second generation is when it is pressed out of the fruit and stored in a bottle. This is second best but we need oils so sometimes this is the only way we can get them. Oils are delicate and when taken out of their natural suspension so to speak they are vulnerable to being altered by being exposed to light, heat, being stored in plastic instead of glass etc.
Fish oils are said to be very delicate and don’t keep well outside of the fish.
Good oils: Olive, coconut, avocado, flax, sesame etc. Ghee (clarified butter) is said to be excellent for cholesterol. Nuts have good oils for the brain which is mostly fat (lecithin)
The best oils should ideally be labeled: stone ground (a rare thing), cold pressed (no heat involved in the extraction process), first press (not the second press), pure extra virgin oil (not mixed or blended with any other oil). In a dark glass bottle (protected from oxidation by daylight). Taste is everything and should be your guide.
Bad oils: most cheap cooking oils in the store, especially in clear plastic bottles. Oils are light sensitive and best stored in dark bottles.
Good fats push the bad fats out. Oils keep the liver and gallbladder flowing so the gallstones don’t build up. They are necessary for the vascular system also. We need fats (plant fats) in out diet.
1-2 tablespoons per day is good. More for a therapeutic dose.
Plant oils are best for our body
