It Is Time To Detoxify
We have attempted to make an irrefutable case for the vital importance and necessity
for comprehensive detoxification programs in light of the fact that we have systematically
altered and polluted our eco-systems..
Detoxification is the process of clearing toxins from the body or neutralizing or
transforming them, and clearing excess mucus and congestion. Many of these toxins
come from our diet, drug use, and environmental exposure, both acute and chronic.
Internally, fats, especially oxidized fats and cholesterol, and other irritating
molecules act as toxins.
Poor digestion, colon sluggishness and dysfunction, reduced liver function, and poor
elimination through the kidneys, respiratory tract, and skin all add to increased
Detoxification involves dietary and lifestyle changes which reduce intake of toxins
and improve elimination. Avoidance of chemicals, from food or other sources, refined
food, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and many drugs helps minimize the toxin
load. Those lifestyle changes are a direct result of choices you make in your life.
The Bottom line is that we are “toxic’ due to our lifestyles(poor dietary habits)
and the assualt on the environment...This awareness is deeply rooted in naturopathic
medicine and the other healing arts...
The art and science of detoxification needs to be brought rapidily into the mainstream
if we are serious about creating a health vibrant society... The allopathic medical
model is bascially ingnorant of the necessity for an individual to engage in systematic,
periodic cleansing and detoxification... The good news is that more and more Americans
are becoming aware of the vital importance to embark on thier own cleansing program(s)
knowing that this is an essential key for healing and regeneration..
Today most health food stores carry and promote various cleansing/detoxification
programs and all the necessary ingredients... these elements being bentonite clay,
flax seeds, fresh fruits and vegetables, various homeopathic and herbal remedies
etc..Today via the miracle of the internet all this information and a whole variety
of such programs and books are available. However the vast majority of Americans
are either not aware of this and/or have chosen not to take greater responsibilty
for their health...
Obviously we have a major educational challenge here. It is imperative to reiterate
the importance of preventative medicine if we want to lower the health care costs.
Ultimately, it is everyones best interest to promote vibrant health!
