Every day we are exposed to external toxins from our environment and internal toxins produced as the byproduct of our digestive and metabolic processes. Toxic and unwanted chemicals are found in our foods, water and air in the form of pesticides, heavy metals and other pollutants. Working in climate controlled environments is a source of airborne microorganisms and home and work environments expose us to paint and carpet fumes. Everything from plastic containers to dry cleaned clothes to skin and haircare products bombard our bodies with unwanted pollutants. All of these fall in the category of environmental toxins. Our bodies also produce unwanted substances as the normal byproduct of our digestion and metabolism.
We can accumulate waste products of any infectious microrganisms living in our bodies. If our body has the proper nutrition in sufficient quantities to provide a healthy biochemistry and if the organs of elimination and detoxification are functioning at optimal levels, our body is able to eliminate these unwanted substances safely and efficiently through cellular processes via the main organs of detoxification; skin, bowels, liver, kidneys and lungs. However, if the body is producing and taking in more toxins than it can safely eliminate, a state of chronic toxicity may occur.
Most chronic illnesses are the result of a combination of factors. When the body has been over burdened with external and internal toxic substances for a prolonged period of time, it loses its capacity to detoxify at the same rate that toxins are being produced and ingested. It is under these unnatural conditions that we begin to manifest symptoms of being overloaded with toxicity and our organs are weakened. It is thought by many health professionals that this prolonged state of toxicity undermines organ and cellular function and is the underlying cause of many chronic diseases.
The presence of unwanted substances in the body is a very common root of illness. The process of eliminating unwanted substances from the body at the cellular level addresses and corrects this imbalance.
