Eat your eggs! - Helping your body to eliminate toxins
Article supplied by Gary Martin ND in conjunction with Prue King
The human body was designed to live far longer than the average lifespan today, enjoying much higher energy levels and a greater degree of wellness than most could even imagine.
Centuries of debasing habits, the destruction of natural resources and the wide spread use of chemicals have accelerated genetic decline.
Earth is contaminated. Every human is contaminated. Babies are contaminated before birth. Contamination continues throughout the life increasing the rate of chronic illness and mortality. Poisons are everywhere, affecting every industry, every home and every person.
Yet, in spite of this shocking situation, our bodies employ an amazing security system to protect us from toxins, and a powerful elimination system to expel them if they breach our defences.
In recent years there has been a significant rise in asthma, ADD, ADHD, child brain cancer, fibro myalgia, leukaemia, multiple sclerosis, miscarriages, lymphoma, infertility, breast cancer and prostate disease.
A laboratory analysis in umbilical cord blood detected 287 chemicals and toxic metals in only ten unborn babies1. Toxins alter the blood chemistry and disturb the symphonic language of the body producing defects and diseases such as those mentioned above.
Through poor lifestyle habits many fail to support their security system, allowing their internal police force to become weak and lazy. Elimination systems are often overtaxed, starved of proper nutrition and weakened through lack of exercise and hydration, leaving them clogged and ineffective. For wellness and longevity we need to regularly cleanse out the system, strengthen the security forces and establish a toxic-minimised environment and a lifestyle that will protect the body from further invasion.
A ten day cleanse at Living Valley Springs provides a medically designed detox program along with the education required to achieve all of the above.
Toxins create an acid environment and thereby produce a deadly cycle whereby they themselves become more toxic, more reactive and more acidic. This cycle must be dealt with before toxins can be mobilised. The correction of the pH of body fluids is essential. This can be achieved using organic anions such as bicarbonates, citrates, malates and lactates.
Lemons, limes or apple cider vinegar will indirectly stimulate the pancreases to produce bicarbonate.
Lactates found in sauerkraut or cultured dairy foods will also reduce acidity.
Superfoods such as Green Barley, Wheat Grass, Maca and Bee Pollen are all alkaline.
Where urine pH readings are consistently acid, buffer drinks can be helpful. (See Acid Buffer Drink below)
Once the acid problem is corrected, toxins can be mobilised. Fat soluble toxins are generally stored in fatty tissue.
The process to eliminate them is achieved by mobilising fat stores in the body. This can be affected by controlled fasting (under the supervision of experienced professionals) and dietary changes. An increase in protein and a reduction in carbohydrates(see food pyramid below) will cause the body to burn fat. Daily doses of coconut oil will also effectively mobilise fat stores.
Once mobilised, these poisons must be broken into smaller particles, converted into water soluble toxins, neutralised and finally eliminated. As they break up they become more toxic. However they can be rendered harmless by attaching themselves to nutrients such as amino acids and antioxidants. The key to effective detoxification is found in the balance between these two processes. The breaking up of toxins needs to be slowed down by reducing the toxic load and by ingesting inhibitors such as turmeric, watercress, echinacea, kava, and garlic.
Preparation for elimination can be enhanced by increasing protein, particularly organic eggs, and taking antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E, glutathione, coenzyme Q10, selenium, quercetin, zinc and phyto nutrients such as brassica vegetables, St. Mary’s Thistle, green tea and lemon peel.
Once balance is achieved, toxins can be eliminated with minimal discomfort. Consider changing to natural household and beauty products, including detergents, laundry powders, toothpaste, skin care
products, etc. This will reduce the toxic load on many people. A good water filter is
also a great idea (See www.reverseosmosiswaterfilters.net.au). Ionisers are excellent for cleaning up the air we breathe. Wherever possible eat organically grown food.
Once neutralised, toxins can be effectively eliminated by stimulating the four major eliminating organs.
- The Bowels - Life Capsules, containing Aloe Vera, Myrrh & Ginger stimulate the peristalsis to improve regularity.
- The Skin - Steam saunas are excellent, but there is something even better. Far Infrared saunas are 20% more effective in removing toxins.
- The Lungs - Broncho Tone (Prac. only range) is an excellent lung decongestant.
- The Kidneys - Drink plenty of good, clean, pure water in between meals.
*Do not drink water with meals.
