We have just created a very advanced self diagnostic test that you can administer to yourself to see if you have toxins in your body. You ready? We are about to beam you this advanced diagnostic tool…here it is:
If you answered YES to any of those three questions, sorry but you have toxins in
your body. If you answered NO to any of the above three questions, well, you are a
robot and that poses a whole set of other problems… but let’s deal with our human audience for now…
Toxins are all around us – in the air, in our food and in our water.
The really bad news is that of the 85,000 new chemicals developed in the last 60 years, a whopping 90% of them have never been tested for their effects on human health. More than 9,000 of these chemicals are food additives. Scientists currently estimate that humans carry at least 700 toxic chemicals in our bodies that have not been studied. Most of these toxins are persistent organic pesticides, such as PCBs and dioxins. Even though they’ve been banned from the US since the 1970s, they are still prevalent in our food supply (persistent!). Many new chemicals, such as BPA, phthalates, and flame retardants (PBDE) have entered our food supply and are also contributing to our bodies’ chemical burden.
I Eat A Clean, Organic Diet – I Should Be Toxin Free, Right?
Well, we have some good news and some bad news – which do you want first? The good news? Great. By eating an organic diet you are feeding your body the nutrients it needs and avoiding many of the harmful chemicals in conventional food. Well done, you are definitely doing your part to live a healthier life.
Now for the bad news…yeah, you have toxins in your body. A whole lot less than a person who smokes and eats highly processed artificial foods, but unfortunately toxins are everywhere.
They are not only in our food, but also in our water, body care products, packaging, air, oceans, streams, river, and wildlife. And, sadly, they are in us – all of us. Toxins enter our bodies from our environment, including our food supply, and are stored in our fat and muscles. Some sea mammals at the top of their food chain have levels so high that they are actually qualified as toxic waste under US law!
What Are These Toxins Doing to Me?
Not helping you in any way, that is for sure! Toxins in the body can lead to:
- Joint Pain
- Sinus Congestion
- Digestive Disturbances
- Environmental Allergies and Sensitivities
- Neurologic Dysfunction
- Food Intolerances
- Elevated Cholesterol
- Skin Disorders
Wow, just reading that list can lead to depression! Does everyone who has toxins in their body experience all these problems? No. However, just experiencing any of the problems can be very disturbing.
Doesn’t My Body Have A Way to Eliminate Toxins?
Yes…but talk about a system that is overworked! The liver is our body’s major detoxification organ, and its healthy function is vital to our wellbeing. It has the most varied and vast job of any organ in the body. With lots of work to do daily, it can become burdened and congested. A healthy liver will neutralize and transform toxins through two phases of detoxification. It will metabolize carbohydrates, help regulate blood sugar, store and transport nutrients, and synthesize amino acids, fats, and cholesterol. It’s busy cleaning house 24 hours a day!
Simply put, in most cases we are taking in more toxins than our liver can eliminate and that is a recipe for disaster.
