According to the Center for Disease Control 7 out of every 10 deaths in America are diseases of long duration and generally slow increasingly degenerative progression. Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes, are by far the leading cause of mortality in the world, representing 63% of all deaths. Out of the 36 million people who died from chronic disease in 2008, nine million were under 60 and ninety per cent of these premature deaths occurred in low- and middle-income countries.
What is little known to the public is that many so called chronic diseases are actually reversible depending on a person's environment, genetic make up and lifestyle choices.
Feeling tired, sluggish, lethargic? suffering from headaches, or catching colds easily? Perhaps you have trouble concentrating and staying focused, Maybe its joint pain, bad breath, or you have trouble sleeping. These along with other symptoms such as frequent gas, bloating or indigestion, allergies and food sensitivities, skin problems, constipation and other gastrointestinal irregularities, can all be caused by inflammation and toxicity to the body, and one's bio chemical health. Even mood changes, irritability and depression can be caused by toxicity to the body. We are exposed to toxins everyday, both externally in the environment and internally through our body’s normal byproducts of digestion and metabolism. A toxin is anything that interferes with our normal physiology and has a negative impact on bodily functions. Humans have an amazing ability to adapt to challenging situations and environmental insults. Our own natural cleansing systems work constantly to keep our bodies healthy. So when we are exposed to chemicals, our bodies can generally process and metabolize them without affecting our health. However, a lifetime of exposure to these pervasive chemicals taxes our natural cleansing systems. As a result, our health is affected adversely. We reach a boiling point when our bodies show signs of toxic overload. It is this toxic overload that underlies many chronic diseases by affecting our immune, endocrine, neurological and cardiovascular systems Knowing why you are toxic as well as getting to the root of it is key to the detox process. But its not just simple detox, one also needs to be aware of the specific drainage pathways making sure that they are opened in precise and deliberate ways to insure the toxins are actually released from the body once they have been released from the organs and not just redistributed and stored elsewhere leading to further complications down the road.
