Throughout the last century, advances in industrialization, manufacturing, and technology have resulted in ever-increasing amounts of toxic elements being released into the environment. From air pollution, tooth fillings, skin creams, and paint dyes, to batteries, seafood, vegetables, tap water, and dietary supplements, toxic exposure now commonly occurs through a multitude of diverse vectors. Most of these elements remain in the environment long after the original exposure source is gone.
Over a lifetime, these toxic elements may accumulate inside the human body in tissue such as fat and bone, being broken down and eliminated very slowly. Eventually, this increasing toxic burden can trigger a variety of physical and cognitive disorders, including depression, anxiety, memory loss, and fatigue.
Even at relatively low levels, toxic elements have the destructive capability to damage nerves and tissue; strong clinical evidence points to their potential role in early neurodevelopment disorders, such as Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, as well as in neurodegenerative conditions of aging such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
Heart disease, impaired kidney function, respiratory illness, weakened immune function, gastrointestinal dysfunction, and increased cancer risk have also been linked to chronic toxic element exposure.
Symptoms of toxicity include:
▪ difficulty losing weight;
▪ allergies or intolerance to certain foods;
▪ bad breath and foul-smelling gas and stools;
▪ constipation, diarrhea, and irregular bowel movements;
▪ recurrent respiratory problems;
▪ flatulence or gas and frequent intestinal disorders;
▪ frequent headaches for no apparent reason;
▪ general aches and pains that migrate from one place to another;
▪ intolerance to fatty foods;
▪ feeling tired, sluggish, lethargic;
▪ trouble sleeping;
▪ loss of vitality for no apparent reason;
▪ lower back pain;
▪ lowered resistance to infections;
▪ needing to sleep for a long time;
▪ difficulty concentrating and staying focused;
▪ pain in your liver or gall bladder;
▪ premenstrual syndrome (PMS);
▪ breast soreness; vaginal infections;
▪ skin problems, boils, pimples and acne;
▪ sinus problems
Given that we are exposed to various toxins daily – from foods, or environment, and products we use, everybody may benefit from undertaking an internal cleanse, or as we like to call it, a shower on the inside!
