Detoxification, Toxic Substances, Alcohol, Drug, Body cleansing and detox.
In recent history, mankind has managed to drastically change the chemistry of our environment.
A report in 1989 stated, ( I wonder about the stats now) that a grand total of 5,705,670,380 pounds of chemical pollutants were released into the environment we eat, breath and live in, all in just One year.
To compound the problem of our toxic environment, we have refined away much of the nutritional value of our food supply and replaced it with artificial colourings, preservatives, flavourings, conditioners, etc..
Unfortunately, our Diet, combined with extensive use of Antibiotics, Hormones in medicine and agriculture, may have predisposed many of us to experience a kind of "Internal Pollution".
Internal pollution occurs when the healthful bacteria in the intestinal tract are overcome by unhealthy bacteria. But toxins not only come from external sources (referred to as exotoxins); they are also produced from within the body (endotoxins). For example; intestinal bacteria may release specific metabolic by-products, that when absorbed, have toxic effects, negatively impacting overall health...
Consequences of Toxicity...
When the body experiences an overload of toxic substances, the consequences can manifest in a number of ways: headaches; muscle and joint pain; fatigue; irritability; depression; mental confusion; gastro-intestinal tract irregularities; cardiovascular abnormalities; flu-like symptoms or allergic reactions, including hives, stuffy or runny nose, sneezing and coughing and even more serious; autoimmune disease, including inflammatory and rheumatoid arthritis and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
