Environmental Toxins

Environmental toxins are ubiquitous - everywhere around us. It is almost impossible in today's world to avoid exposure to some level of toxic substance. Even the most pristine wilderness is suffering from the impact of industrial waste.

One of the greatest concerns we have is avoiding high amount of poisonous pesticides that are regularly sprayed on our food supply. By eating foods that contain high residuals of these insect killers we are taking poisons into our bodies on a daily basis. We encourage each person to buy organically grown (unsprayed) produce whenever possible.

Chemical exposure is one of the major contributors to low vitality. Chemical toxins affect individuals in vastly different ways depending upon their individual biochemical make-up. A person's constitution and state health has a lot to do with whether or not the immune system will be able to protect the body from the vast array of chemical assault. The immune system can become seriously impaired by over exposure to chemicals. Some chemical exposures acts to suppress immunity, while other cause the immune system to overreact.

In cases where the immune system acts to suppress immunity, it leaves one open to infections and viruses. When the immune system overreacts it leads to autoimmune diseases in which the immune system actually attacks the body's own cells. Arthritis, lupus, and some thyroid disorders are examples.

In order to combat the effects of our environment our bodies need to be saturated with the proper nutrients.

Recommendations to consider in creating a change towards better health include:
  • Reduce the total toxic load by removing toxins from your environment and offending foods and additives from your diet.
  • Restore your body's pH to its normal balance so that cellular systems begin to function normally.
  • Begin a supervised detoxification program aimed at removing toxins stored in body tissues.
  • Take a sauna whenever possible so that you sweat out toxins that are stored in the body's fat.
  • Support the endocrine, immune, and liver system.
  • Begin a program of stress management.
  • Restore gastrointestinal function.
  • Detoxification programs that attempt to lower the body's level of toxic substances are an important means of improving health and eliminating fatigue.
So Why Detox?

Have you ever washed greasy dishes without hot water or dish soap? The dishes don't get clean, do they? When toxic metals and chemical food additives get inside your body, it takes a strong "cleanser" to scrub your body clean from the inside out. The combination of vitamins and minerals through detoxification work in this fashion to remove toxins from your body tissues and body organs, from your water stores, fat deposits, and within your bloodstream. Natural cleansing is critical to remove body toxins, and protects from re-depositing them somewhere else in the body.

Toxins such as lead, mercury, and the side effects of aspartame's by-products of formic acid and formaldehyde, block nutrients from getting into normal body cells in the same fashion a lead shield blocks radiation during an x-ray.

If toxins are present within your body, oxygen and the body's "food supply" cannot get inside your cells to supply needed nutrients, nor can the cells' waste products get out. Diseases, such as cancer, now have an environment in which to form. When these body toxins are removed, your body can then restore a healthy balance.

Identify, Remove, and Restore

The basic philosophy behind any effective detox program is to identify, remove, and restore.

  • Identify what toxins are at the root of your health problems.
  • Remove the toxins by cleansing your body.
  • Restore lost nutrients.

    Like pealing the layers off an onion, as each layer is removed through detoxification, the underlying layers reveal what's really behind disease symptoms. The deeper you go toward removing the 'core' of the problem, healing becomes long-term reality.

    Ten Steps to Detoxification

    Begin with detoxing your body of all residual chemical toxins and see if any adverse health symptoms remain. Try these steps for yourself, and within 30 days your symptoms should improve if not completely disappear.

    The Ten Steps:

    • Remove all chemicals from your diet.
    • Learn to 'read' your body. Begin recording any health changes.
    • Get a hair analysis.(Click here for more information on Hair Analysis Kits)
    • Be happy with yourself.
    • Detoxify.
    • Restore depleted nutrients.
    • Exercise and get plenty of rest.
    • Eat 75% raw foods at every meal.
    • Drink water, water, water.
    • Get control of your life.

    Do not overlook the fact that healing from disease and illness takes faith, personal strength, and perseverance. Curing illness and degenerative diseases with a mind-body approach might be considered old-fashioned and ineffective when compared to today's high tech prescriptions, but it's essential that human beings remember that the roots of disease and their cures are as old-fashioned as the body itself, and healing begins with SELF.

    What is a Hair Analysis?

    A hair analysis determines exactly what chemicals are inside of you, including radiation. Generic medical lab tests don't identify deep tissue toxins nor nutrient depletions the same way a hair analysis does.

    The protein in hair fiber holds the composition of the body tissues for a permanent period. By analyzing your hair fiber composition, you can tell what toxins have accumulated in the body tissues and what vitamins and minerals are depleted or too abundant causing imbalances in body function. By detoxifying unnatural chemicals and by replacing specific vitamins individual to your needs, proper health can be restored using nutrition. The human hair analysis points out these levels, making the hair analysis the BEST tool out there.

    Good Nutrition works.

    • Take the time to determine at which point you may have gotten off track nutritionally and what 'poisons' you have been exposed to.
    • Detox your body of all environmental and food chemicals you have been exposed to throughout your lifetime.
    • Restore depleted nutrients through proper supplements and whole foods.

    Toxins are at the root of most diseases, and once they are removed, health and well being return. An effective detoxification plan removes the source of disease symptoms, such as aspartame or radiation poisoning, detoxifies toxic residue from the body, and replaces specific nutrients to regain a state of wellness. Detoxing the body removes toxins from chemicals quickly and can actually remove most chemical toxins from your body tissues and body organs, from your water stores, and from fat stores within your bloodstream, along with assisting in the elimination of those toxins via the bowels and pores of the body.
