Toxins in Body

Our body is accumulating hundreds of toxic matters everyday. They enter our body through our food, drink and exposure to environmental pollutants. They damage our self-healing mechanism and thus lower our immunity. As a result, we often fall sick or have minor health issues. These sicknesses and minor health issues are symptoms given out by our body warning us that it is over loaded with toxins. If we do not remove them, the sicknesses or health issues will become chronic diseases.

Listed below are some symptoms of toxicity in the body:
Acne / boils
Bad breath (Halitosis)
Frequent cold/influenza
Furry coating on tongue
Hair falling off
Joint pain
Long ridges on nails
Migraine / headache
Mood changes
Poor appetite
Post menopause syndrome
Pot belly or obesity
Skin problems
Sleepy after meal
Tired with minimum exertion
and thousands of other symptoms

If you have one or more of the above symptoms, you need to detox your body.

The first step in the basic detox is the colon cleanse. It helps to purge out the accumulated toxins and pollutants in the intestines and colon. They must be purged out every 3 to 4 weeks, otherwise the toxins and the mucus plaque formed in the intestinal and colon walls, will cause a host of diseases from our mouth to our anus. Further more, the toxins and the acidic fluid accumulated in the congested gut, will leach into the blood and lymphatic systems. When this happens, our organs and body systems will become damaged and lose their functions. They will also be defendless against viruses, bacteria and parasites. This will lead to chronic diseases.

The second step is the parasite cleanse. We must have at least two bowel movements per day, if not, we are having constipation. The accumulated fecal matters will become acidic and is a condusive environment for the parasites to live and breed. The parasites can leach into the blood system and migrate to various parts of our body. Some of the health issues caused by parasites are migraine, headache, backache, diarrheoa and pain in the joints and body.
The parasite cleanse helps to remove or kill the harmful parasites in the body.

The third step is to do a liver and gallbladder cleanse which should flush out the liver and gallbladder stones.
The liver performs more than 500 functions.

Below are some of their functions:
Filters toxins from blood so that they are not sent to the heart to be pumped to various parts of the body

Produces urea for urine so that there will be less uric acid in the body
Stores vitamins & minerals so that they can be released when required
Produces hormones for many types of body functions
Produces amino acids for body usage
Bile to emulsify fats so that they can be utilized by the body
Maintains glucose level so that there won't be too much sugar in the blood
Produces 80% cholesterol for body activities
Produces bio-chemicals for digestion

One of the major functions of the liver is to use the cholesterol to bind the toxins, chemicals and other environmental pollutants into stones. But unfortunately, our modern diet and lifestyle cause the formation many stones. The stones can congest the ducts in the liver. Liver stones can also find their way to the gallbladder and be stored there. When there are too many stones, the liver and the gallbladder functions will be affected.  Every adult has liver and gallbladder stones ranging from 2,000 to 20,000. They are the cause of 10,000 types of health issues.
The liver is just like the oil filter in our car. Every time we service our car, we change the oil filter. Since we cannot change our liver, we should at least service it once a month by flushing out the stones.

There are many detox programmes and detox products sold in the market. Most programmes only cleanse the colon. But the more important ones are parasite, liver and gallbladder cleanse.
Some detox programmes make you purge once or none at all. Some make you purge more than 10 times. A good detox programme makes you purge 3 to 8 times. A good basic detox programme should include a colon, parasite, liver and gallbladder cleanse mention above.

Performing the basic detox monthly can help you prevent or even cure chronic diseases. It is also the first step to taking control of your health.
