Your body is loaded with poisons which have been increasing since conception. What does the research show? What illnesses and health conditions are greatly increased by having these poisons in your body? Are there any safe ways to reduce your “toxic load” also referred to as “body burden”? Can reducing these toxins also reduce symptoms, extend life, and prevent disease? These questions and more will be covered in the paragraphs below.
In simple language, a toxin is a substance which is toxic or poisonous in any way to the body. Some toxins can cause death rapidly, such as a bite from an extremely poisonous snake or other reptile, or breathing in the vapor of an extremely poisonous gas in a high concentration. Most toxic substances to which humans are generally exposed are far more insidious and take years or decades worth of continual damage before the actual symptoms appear.
Poisons are always dose related. The same chlorine, fluorine or hydrogen sulfide gas that can kill someone in a matter of minutes, will cause far less harm, and symptoms from which a person can recover, at much lower concentrations. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is very poisonous in high concentrations, but in low concentrations and when mixed with adequate air or oxygen, has been used for decades as an anesthetic in the dental industry. The rotten egg smell which is observed with even minute concentrations of hydrogen sulfide gas becomes extremely deadly when this gas is in higher concentrations.
The second issue is that of exposure time. It is well documented that inhaling smoke from the chemically treated tobacco in commercial cigarettes can increase the risk of lung cancer. Will this risk increase if only one or two cigarettes have been smoked in a lifetime? I would highly doubt it. It takes many years of regular smoking before obvious damage generally becomes noticeable. Even after a decade, it is only seen in a small percentage of individuals and most often not in those with truly adequate intakes of protective nutrients. This is why Japan with its consumption of high nutrient seaweeds, and a per capita cigarette consumption far higher than in the U.S., has a much lower rate of lung cancer.
In addition to cumulative exposure, an even more important issue is interactive exposure of multiple toxins. In many cases, one poison may be only mildly toxic but when it exists in the body in combination with a second or third (or dozens) of other mildly toxic poisons, the effects become multiplied hundreds or even thousands of times. The best example of this was an experiment done with rats. The LD-1 of lead (the dose which would kill one rat out of a hundred) was mixed with the LD-1 of mercury, and these two combined to give a tiny lead and mercury dose which instead of killing just two rats out of 100, it killed the entire 100! This is why the few safety studies which are carried out on cleaning products, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other chemicals are almost totally useless. They always test only single chemicals and never multiple exposures in the way we are exposed to them in real life. Let me just take a moment to say that one of the best independent web sites of a nonprofit “watchdog” agency, where you can read more about our body burden of toxins, is the Environmental Working Group at www.EWG.org. Please support them as they are monitoring the polluters and looking out for our health and the health of those we love.
A few of the well researched poisons and some of the places they may be found in our daily lives include:
our drinking water, our laundry and, and many household cleansers-
Chloramines--in some drinking water in place of or in addition to chlorine-
Fluoride--in our drinking water, tooth pastes and still used by less knowledgeable dentists-
Toxic chemicals in our air fresheners, deodorizers and “plug ins”-
Pesticides, herbicides and fungicides--in and on our fruits and vegetables and in our air-
Heavy metals such as the mercury in every silver amalgam dental filling-
Hormones, steroids and antibiotic residues-in our meats, dairy and farm raised fish-
Numerous toxic chemicals--in cleaners, polishes and solvents we use in our homes-
Hundreds of poisons in small amounts in the air we breathe (worse indoors)-
Toxic chemicals- in the stain repellents on our new upholstered furniture-
The chemicals that give that “new car” smell-
Formaldehyde which out gasses from carpeting and press board in our homes-
Toxic vapors released from the toner in our copiers and laser printers-
Fire retardant chemicals in our furniture, mattresses, and children’s clothing-
Numerous different types of chemical “additives” in our foods and toiletries-
The list above is just the tip of the iceberg, but I wanted to be sure you understand how extensive and invasive these chemicals are in our homes and in our lives.
The conditions for which there is published research documenting the connections between some of these poisons and diseases include cancer, Parkinson’s, ALS, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and many neurological diseases of “unknown origin”. The MD, PhD experts at the scientific conferences I attend each year continue to mention a very important disease link. They keep saying that almost every degenerative disease, auto immune disease, mental or emotional condition and a plethora of others, are most likely caused or greatly aggravated by the numerous toxins in our bodies. These same toxic substances are the ones which our industrial society continues to generate more and more of every year. These same poisons are the ones which most of us unknowingly (or knowingly) use in our homes and businesses as well as on our bodies and in our mouths every day.
Luckily, it is possibly to reduce our risks by reducing our body burden of these chemicals through whole body detoxification. In most cases I, and numerous other professionals around the world, have seen numerous symptoms reduce or vanish completely as the individual’s toxic load is gradually reduced by proper detoxification.
Remember, in most people, these toxins have been accumulating for a very long time. Even though the symptoms may have begun only in the last couple of weeks (or years) this is simply due the body finally becoming so overloaded that it could no longer handle the poisoning that had been going on for a lifetime. It is because of this, that the detox MUST BE DONE SLOWLY! Imagine never cleaning your home for the last 20-50 (or more) years and then having someone with a commercial vacuum cleaner move through the house. You would stir up so much dust that you would have to stop immediately and would be coughing for hours. In the case of detoxification of the body, it might even send you to the hospital. Detoxification MUST be done correctly and slowly. The body must be “prepared” for the detox process. This is done by using special formulas to help support and detoxify both your liver and kidneys for a month or more BEFORE you begin to actually pull toxic chemicals from your tissues, into your blood, for elimination through these two organs. I always make it VERY CLEAR to my patients and students that the goal is to never rush but to always be moving forward. The direction (forward-less toxins) is what is important, not the speed. If you try to build a house in a month, you will have a mess and not a house.
There are so many benefits to reducing our toxic load that they are almost endless but a few may include (everyone is different); more energy, better elimination, less or no more headaches, better and more recuperative sleep, improved memory, pain reduction, reduced tingling in body parts, regulation of irregular heart beat, better hearing, improved smell or taste, and many others. The single most important benefit for many is the huge reduction in the risk of developing numerous degenerative and even fatal diseases.
If we continue to expose ourselves to all of the same toxins every day, then it will be a great deal more difficult (and slower) to rid the body of those which have already accumulated in our tissues. Learning where these poisons come from and what must be done to begin the detoxification process is not an extremely complicated educational endeavor. The education will take a bit of time and a commitment on your part just like any important thing you have ever decided to learn how to do. The application of this important knowledge can extend your life, reduce your risks of numerous extremely undesirable health conditions and make you a much happier healthier person. I have even seen the detoxification process save marriages and relationships as it can make huge differences in emotions as numerous emotion disrupting poisons are slowly eliminated from the body.
Since the process of detoxification MUST be carried out correctly, it is not possible to cover it in a short article. Since too many people will not read a long book, I have produced a very comprehensive 2 hour video (DVD) which teaches the process in a clear and easily understandable manner. Included with the DVD is a CD for your computer. I have found that it is simply too difficult for viewers to take adequate notes on a topic like this.
The CD I include contains all of the additional necessary information in printable PDF format. I have specified the products which I use in my office with my patients. I have included the doses and procedures I use and the order that must be followed. I have included companies from which you should be able to find the products that I discuss. In order to be certain that I DO NOT violate any FDA regulations I do not tell you which exact product to use. Since I often use a different kidney, liver, lymphatic or detox product with different patients, it would be impossible for me to specify your exact products on the CD and DVD and I might be violating the FDA’s treatment doctrine. I do however give you all the best products and methods of use. Whichever products you decide to use, if you should chose to begin a detoxification program for your health, you will benefit tremendously. I even give you information on learning the energetic testing method I use in my office to discover which exact product is best for each of my patients.

I put a great deal of effort and love into the production of my DVD’s. I sincerely hope that anyone who views them and makes use the knowledge I provide, will get all the benefits they are seeking.
I would wish you good luck, but it is my expert experience that luck has little to do with better health. Proper and valid knowledge combined with correct and orderly application of the knowledge are the keys to almost every goal in life. Improved health is no different and so I wish you the desire to improve your health and the necessary effort to carry out this important desire.
