For thousands of years, body purification has been a part of our ritual for health and well-being. It was used in ancient times as a way to reconnect with the divine and purify the body. Detoxification is imperative for us just to stay healthy today! Purification allows us to clean out all the collected waste matter, environmental pollutants, and residue from all the drugs and chemicals that become trapped in our bodies.
Many of the toxins we are exposed to an environmental in nature. We accumulate them from the air we breathe, water we drink and food we eat. Many of the air toxins originate from man-made sources, including mobile sources (i.e., cars, trucks, buses) and stationary sources (i.e., factories, refineries, power plants), as well as indoor sources (e.g., some building materials and cleaning solvents).
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is currently working with governmental agencies to reduce 188 toxins which are currently being released into the air. The EPA indicates that there was 1.2 billion pounds of potentially damaging chemicals that were released into the air and water nationwide in 1998. According to the Environmental Campaign Organization, “Pollution from toxic chemicals threatens life on this planet. Every ocean and every continent, from the tropics to the once-pristine Polar Regions, is contaminated. We have been learning about this first hand with the oil spill which recently happened at the hands of BP.
Americans use more chemicals than ever before. The “average American uses about 25 Gallons of toxic, hazardous chemical products per year in their home.” (Prosperitywithout Pollution) These toxic chemicals found in household cleaners are three times more likely to cause cancer than air pollution. This is directly stated by the EPA! Consumer Product Safety Commission states that of all the 150 chemicals found in the home can be linked to allergies, birth defects psychological abnormalities, and cancer.
Not convinced yet that we have not gone chemically crazy? “During the past 50 years more than 75,000 chemicals have been introduced into the environment.” “Today 300 synthetic chemicals are found in the bodies of humans. Even newborn babies have synthetic chemicals passed on from their mothers.” This is stated by the REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals, a European Union Program.
How about what is actually in the typical American diet? Food laws require that all foods are labeled with ingredients, and preservatives explained with common names. Unfortunately, many manufacturers have found ways to avoid following these laws. Have you recently picked up a package and could not even pronounce half of the ingredients? How many of your patients do not realize that corn syrup is another word for sugar?
Have your patients asked why they gain weight every year, but swear they have not changed anything in their diet? In the past 20 years the average American has increased their calorie intake from 1,850 to over 2,000 calories a day. A McDonald’s Combo Quarter Pounder meal is over 2,000 calories. This increase is enough to add an extra 15 lbs a year! What has changed, is an increase in dense nutrient deficient food and drinks and a reduction in fruits and vegetables. If you survey your patients I would bet you will find less than half of them get the recommended 5-9 servings of vegetables and fruits a day. Sadly, the average American consumes only 3 servings of fruit and or leafy green vegetables daily.
Enough about food let’s talk water. Everyone seems to know that our water supply is toxic. It is full of bacteria, viruses, protozoa and parasitic worms that enter via sewage systems and untreated waste. Have you thought about what happens to all the drugs that have been flushed down the toilets or dumped down the drains for the past 20 years? How many people do you see with plastic water bottles to rectify this situation? I will tell you why this is not the best practice either.
Over 25 years ago someone decided formula was better than nature’s mother’s milk. Considering what I have already shared, you may think they are right. Let me tell what our youngsters are getting in their food. Enterobacter Sakazakii and phytoestrogens are just among a few of the contaminants proven to be found in formula. I will let you make your own conclusions about whether or not formula is better than breast milk. Some of the top formula companies are affiliated with pesticide or chemical companies that make hazardous chemicals. Other formula companies actually make products out of polyvinyl chloride plastic. In this country formula is an 8 Billion dollar industry. Is there any coincidence that all this toxic exposure might explain why so many of our children today have behavioral and learning disabilities?
We have been told that the introduction of industrial farming practices have saved this country from famine. In the 1920s, British and US Governments were warned by nutritional experts that the soils on which most crops were grown were deficient in their mineral content. The U.S. Government chose not to take any action to correct this problem. Instead intensive modern farming methods were introduced with no regard to nourishing the soil. As a result the fruits and vegetables grown here have little or no vitamin and mineral content.
Pesticides that are sprayed onto our foods are also grown in our foods so washing them does not completely eliminate them. According to the Pesticide Action Network of North America and Commonwealth states that Americans are exposed to 70 toxic chemicals daily. “Organic pollutants” or POPs, dioxin, and DDT are found in the foods we consume daily. Yes DDT! Even though DDT has been banned in the United States we sold this to other countries and guess where many of our fruits and vegetables are imported from? The countries we sold DDT to! Pesticides are designed to kill, so what do you think they do to humans?
You can changes things one person at a time. Teach your patients to purify their bodies every year with a Purification Program and teach them to clean up their environment. They can begin by using earth-friendly, natural cleaning products and reduce pollution. Eat organic foods that are rich in nutrients and colorful.
How do you know that your patients need to undergo a purification program? Ask a few simple questions about what they eat, where they purchase their food from and what kind of pollutants they are exposed to. If you are not comfortable asking these questions, simply listen to their common complaints.
These are just a few complaints we deal with everyday in our office.
- Weight Gain
- Joint/muscle pain
- Hormonal imbalance/Endocrine disruption
