Why Detoxify? Is Cleansing Really Necessary?

In this day and age we are all exposed to thousands of toxins, chemicals, and parasites.  Through the air we breathe, at work, in our homes, through the food and water supply, and through the use of pharmaceutical drugs.

We are also eating more sugar and processed foods than ever before and abuse our bodies on a regular basis with various sedatives and stimulants.

Scientists have started to study the levels of toxins in the human body, and their findings are very disturbing. Research proves that our bodies are not capable of eliminating the multitude of toxins and chemicals we inhale and ingest on a daily basis.

The build up of all of this toxic internal waste causes several health problems.  These toxins accumulate in our cells, blood, tissues, organs, and remain there for an indefinite length of time.

If you experience at least one of these symptoms below, cleansing will benefit you.  Below is a list of some of the symptoms that a person who is due for a cleanse will experience.

Organ Detox

Colon Cleanse

The colon, in an adult is approximately five feet long, and is the primary method that your body uses to eliminate toxins, and wastes.  It is estimated that over 90% of diseases can be directly attributed to an unhealthy digestive system.

Dr. Bernard Jensen (famous naturopathic physician and master herbalist) once said, “It is the bowel that invariably has to be cared for first before any effective healing can take place.”

“Keeping your Bowel flora healthy is the single-most  important thing that you can do for your health!”

Many Naturopathic Physicians believe as Dr. Bernard Jensen did, that all disease start at the colon.  It has been said that if you don’t have at least one bowel movement a day, you are already walking your way toward diseases.  Autopsies often reveal colons that are plugged up to 80 percent with waste material.

Liver Cleanse

A liver cleanse helps to improve your digestion, which is essential for good health.  Bad skin, and cellulite believe it or not are a few symptoms of a sluggish liver.

We develop liver weakness after we have abused our bodies by long-term eating of acid-forming foods, processed foods and other unhealthy foods such as: meat, sugar, white flour, white rice, foods cooked in oil, foods containing a lot of artificial dyes etc.

Smoking cigarettes, using pharmaceutical drugs, acetaminophen, and drinking alcohol can hamper the liver.  All the food that is absorbed from our intestines goes directly to the liver, by way of the portal vein.

The liver and bowels then must filter all the harmful chemicals from the bad food. Food colorings, preservatives, heavy metals, fried oils, partially digested proteins, etc., all take their toll upon our liver.

Some symptoms of a weakened liver are; skin problems, rashes, acne, eczema, fatigue, general malaise, and digestive problems.

Also, blood sugar regulation disorders (such as hypoglycemia), high cholesterol, psoriasis, allergies, chemical sensitivities and constipation.  Extreme cases of liver problems could result in jaundice, hepatitis and cirrhosis.

Gallbladder Cleanse

Ninety percent of adults have intrahepatic stones, but the scary fact is that ninety-nine percent of them don’t know that they have them.  People can have upwards of 3000 stones inside gallbladder and up to 3000 stones inside their liver!

Even children can have gallstones.  It is estimated that 15 – 30% of children ages 14 – 18 have intrahepatic stones.  Ninety five percent of individuals thirty-five and older have intrahepatic stones & gallstones, but most of them have symptoms.

Almost 100% (99.95%) of people diagnosed with cancer have intrahepatic stones.   When the stones get bigger, and more form back pressure on the liver causes it to make less bile.

Also when you have gallstones, much less cholesterol leaves the body, and cholesterol levels tend to rise.  Gallstones are very porous, and can pick up all the bacteria, cysts, viruses and parasites that are passing through the liver.

Heavy Metal Cleanse

Many people have become aware of the mercury toxicity problem. But it would be a mistake to think that metal poisoning is unique to this particular toxin. Consider: silver colloid is an antiseptic and has been used since ancient times to inhibit bacteria in drinking water. If it poisons germs, it will poison you. Iron forms the most destructive free-radical of all (“hot iron”), very damaging to life.

The fact is that all metals are toxic and our bodies require special transport and handling mechanisms to keep them from harming us. This applies just as much as essential minerals, like iron, zinc and chromium, as it does to non-essential metals and metalloids, like cadmium and arsenical compounds.

Heavy metals and cancer

Metals can directly and indirectly damage DNA and that means an increased risk of cancer (we call this genotoxicity). There are also possibly non-genotoxic pathways, due to irritation or immuno-toxicity. Sure enough, a number of metals are known to be carcinogenic. These are:

  • arsenic and arsenic compounds,
  • beryllium and beryllium compounds,
  • cadmium and cadmium compounds,
  • nickel compounds and
  • hexavalent chromium (remember the movie “Erin Brockovich”?).

The usual target is the lung, though arsenic has a unique association with skin cancers that has been recognized for many years.

It is a fact that metal implants in the body (as, for example, in bone pinning or plates) may be associated with adjacent cancers, caused by irritation of the tissues. The late Patrick Stortebecker at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm also pointed out the frequency with which cancer of the jaw was found in association with metal amalgam fillings. That is disturbing, since this particular kind of “prosthetic” tends to be very long term and very common indeed.

A major development in dentistry is the titanium implant, to replace lost teeth. But it is an act of faith to suppose that titanium is inert.

Other metals which cause damage

The presence of toxic metals in our systems is highly significant for they are capable of causing serious health problems through interfering with normal biological functioning. Although they can be found in high concentrations in the body, a number of these heavy metals (aluminum, beryllium, cadmium, lead and mercury) have no known biological function. Others (arsenic, copper, iron and nickel) are thought to be essential at low concentrations, but are toxic at high levels. Generally speaking, heavy metals disrupt metabolic function in two basic ways:

  1. First, they accumulate and thereby disrupt function in vital organs and glands such as the heart, brain, kidneys, bone, liver, etc.
  2. Second, they displace vital nutritional minerals from where they should be in the body to provide biological function. For example, enzymes are catalysts for virtually every biochemical reaction in all life-sustaining processes of metabolism. But instead of calcium being present in an enzyme reaction, lead or cadmium may be there in its place. Toxic metals can’t fulfill the same role as the nutritional minerals, thus their presence becomes critically disruptive to enzyme activity.

Because their impact is at such a foundational level, heavy metals can be causal factors in literally any health problem.

If your job or living circumstances expose you to heavy metals, you would do well to minimize or eliminate your exposure as much as possible. Be aware that there are many ways these toxins can be absorbed into your body–through foods and beverages, skin exposure, and via the air you breathe. So, whenever possible, wear gloves, use protective breathing apparatuses, and be sure to obtain fresh air ventilation.
Avoiding Heavy Metal Exposure is Impossible

Such preventative measures are worthwhile and important , but ultimately futile. The inescapable reality is that it is impossible in this day and age not to be exposed to heavy metals. It is only a matter of how much and how often.

Organism and Foods Detox

Parasite Cleanse

It is estimated that more than 50 % of people in western world, have some parasitic or semi-parasitic animal living inside their body.  Our bodies are a collection of cells, which work together, and are kept working in harmony by chemical signals.  If an organism can manipulate those vital signals; an organism such as a parasite – then it can control us.

“Parasites have killed more humans than all the wars in history”, reported National Geographic in its award-winning documentary, The Body Snatchers.

Visible evidence of an infection is rarely apparent. Many laboratories fail to detect the presence of parasites even when presented with specimens from infected persons.  It is very easy to contract a parasite infection.

Improperly washed food is a common means of infection.  Antibiotics pose a risk because they interfere with normal intestinal flora, some which tend to control certain types of infection.  Contaminated water is one source of infection. Contact with another infected person is also a common route of infection. Travel can escalate the risks.

It is recommended that anyone who has pets do a parasite cleanse once a year.  Cats and dogs carry parasites and transmit them to their owners.  People who eat sushi, or any meat products, are almost certainly infected with parasites.

Candida Cleanse

Most people have an overgrowth of yeast, or candida.  This is caused primarily by the overuse of antibiotics, steroids, sugars, and alcohols.  Antibiotics get rid of bacteria, but in the process they also strip your body of good bacteria.

New research suggests the use of a full spectrum antibiotic (big guns) will completely deplete your good bacteria.  This can lead to yeast infections, acne, bloating, weight gain, illness, and a plethora of health conditions.

Why Detox?

As you can see we are exposed to numerous toxins every day. As you can also see, unless you get rid of these toxins from your body, they will stay there and cause many health issues.

The good news is that you can work on getting rid of all these harmful toxins. That is achieved by detox the specific areas that need cleansing.
