You may have heard, one way or another, about
toxins and chemicals. Their presence is everywhere, from the food we eat
to the air we breath and everywhere in between.
But do you know how toxins and chemicals can be linked to many chronic, weight-related diseases threatening our health today?
Here is an opportunity to learn what you can do to prevent ill effects of toxins on you and your family.
We live in a toxic world
Studies show that, on
average, there are 72 different insecticides, pesticides and herbicides
on our fruits and vegetables. Our drinking water contains chemicals,
heavy metals and, in some places, prescription medication and there are
poisons in the air we breath. One of these poisons is Polycyclic
Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH). PAH is what is released in the air from
anything that burns, including cars, BBQ grills, truck fumes, cigarettes
and fire places. PAH has been linked to the breakdown of the protective
genes that protect women against breast cancer.
Humans are at the top of
the food chain and we are consuming meats that have been injected with
antibiotics and hormones. This use of hormones has been linked to the
increased number of young girls reaching puberty at a much younger age.
If this is not enough, chemicals and toxins can also be linked to many cancers and health conditions. One that is sweeping the nation now is the epidemic of obesity.
Toxicity and Weight Gain?
Here are some alarming statistics:
- 81% of the population is overweight
- 31% meet the criteria to be obese
- The CDC reports over $75 billion a year on weight-related diseases
- 350,000 deaths a year are linked to OBESITY!
are now learning that in addition to exercise and eating habits,
chemicals and toxins are major contributors to obesity and related
enter into our bodies, its natural response is to coat these chemicals
with fat and water in order to excrete them. This is a protective
mechanism innate to our bodies. As more toxins enter, more fat is
produced. The problem arises when our bodies have to eliminate more
toxins than it can handle at one time. We end up storing and carrying a
few extra pounds of fat and water to harbor toxic waste. With time, we
become more and more toxic and this slows the metabolism down, puts a
strain on our internal organs and leaves our body feeling sluggish,
unmotivated and vulnerable to more weight gain and diseases.
Therefore, regular maintenance and cleansing of your internal health can keep your metabolism up, maintain a healthy weight and feeling superb!
How do YOU cleanse and maintain your internal body health?
If you are like most
people, your answer may be "I am not doing anything, I feel perfectly
fine and I do not have any symptoms of diseases." Though you may be
feeling fine, if you are not addressing your health to maintain it, your internal organs may be slowly clogging and deteriorating and you may not even know it! Many of the health
problems in this country are not genetically mediated and do not show
up overnight. They take years to develop. How are you maintaining your health?
real answer when addressing the issue of toxicity is that you need to
cleanse and nutritionally replenish so your body can be the miracle it
was intended to be.
After all, we routinely clean and change many things in our daily lives. We clean:
- the filters in our heating and air conditioning unit, if not it would clog
- the oil in our cars, if not it will break down
- our pool & spa because if we don't they would turn green
- we brush our teeth because if we don't they would rot and fall out
We clean and maintain everything, EXCEPT our most important asset, our INTERNAL ORGANS.
