Detox? Why Should I?

Recently, Time Magazine published an article stating that detoxification is unnecessary and not helpful. I strongly differ with Time based on the following considerations: In 1989, over 6 trillion pounds of chemical toxins were dumped in North America in one year, alone. Can you imagine what havoc we have wreaked on this planet over several decades? 100% of adults today have synthetic and industrial chemicals like dioxins (bleach) and PCB’s stored in our bodies. Heavy toxins like lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic, pesticides, pollutants, pharmaceuticals, plastics and food additives are being dumped into our rivers and streams daily, and carried by air currents around the globe. Polar bears are dying from eating seals with toxins in their fat. A recent televised news report stated that “the tissues of the Inuit peoples of Greenland are classified as toxic waste.” Your body is divinely designed to keep surviving as long as your spirit needs to be here and will do whatever it can within its design to handle stress and keep you surviving. With such toxic overload, your body must store what it cannot get rid of that will cause you harm and death if allowed to be assimilated. So, where does the body store toxins? In your fat cells, just like little storage sheds. Your body is protecting you by building those fat cells around your middle that you can’t seem to get rid of. You know — the flat tire that hangs over your belt even though you have tried every diet aide and get-slim-quick trick in the book. Wisely, your body will not dump fat cells unless you...

Foods That Detoxify

The word “detoxification” conjures up all sorts of reactions these days. It has been interpreted to mean different things to different people. Medically, detoxification is most often viewed as a withdrawal method for drug or alcohol dependency. To others it might mean a spiritual ritual or a way to lose weight (fat cells store toxins). For most of us, however detoxification is a healing strategy– particularly if we suffer with chronic pain, fatigue, allergies, immune disorders, musculoskeletal problems, depression, brain fog, digestive complaints, headaches, cancers, arthritis and many other ailments. Did you know that your body goes through its own natural cycles of detoxification, mostly during the night? While you are resting, the body’s job is to repair, replenish, and replace parts so that you are ready to go in the morning. So, if you are waking up stiff and sore, or are not feeling rested, alert and ready to go in the morning then your body has not been able to do its proper job during the night. Your body, if given the correct raw materials and not over-burdened, is an amazingly efficient waste treatment plant. The problem is that in our modern world we are living, breathing and eating in a toxic soup. The best way to detox the body is to provide quality raw materials it needs to clean out the elimination pathways and filter and convert the toxins to water soluble compounds that can be eliminated There are certain foods that help the body’s natural detoxification mechanisms. They are, of course, naturally grown foods in the form of vegetables and fruits. Here are just some...

Why Detox? Part 1

Never before, in the history of the world, have humans been exposed to such a magnitude of chemicals, toxins and pollutants with devastating effects on our health. In Way back in 1989 the EPA reported that 6 trillion pounds of chemical toxins were dumped in the U.S. in one year, alone. Can you imagine what havoc we are continuing to wreak on the planet? Studies show that 100% of adults have synthetic and industrial chemicals like dioxins and PCB’s stored in our bodies. There are also heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic, as well as pesticides, pollutants, pharmaceuticals, plastics and food additives and too many others to list. These are being dumped into our rivers and streams and carried by air currents around the globe. Polar bears are dying from eating seals who store these toxins in their fat. A recent televised news report stated that “the tissues of the Inuit peoples of Greenland can be classified as toxic waste.” Your body is divinely designed. It is designed to keep surviving as long as your spirit needs to be here. As such, it will do whatever it can within its design to handle stress and keep you surviving. With a toxic overload what it must do is store what it cannot get rid of or what substances will cause you harm and death if allowed to be assimilated. So, where does the body store toxins? In your fat cells, just like little storage sheds. Your body is protecting you by building those fat cells around your middle that you can’t seem to get rid of. You...
