You Can’t Avoid It – But You Can Purge It
They’re in the air we breathe…the water we drink…and the food we eat.
They are toxins. Sadly, there’s really no way to avoid exposure to these silent, deadly health threats.
Even the Clean Air Act is just an act…
On a clear, sunny day with beautiful puffy white clouds, the mild breeze out of the northeast gently brushing against your skin carries dangerous inhalants from vehicle exhaust (particularly diesel), factories, and plenty of other toxic gases – which can kill if enough is inhaled for extended periods of time.
This silent health threat serves to damage us two-fold:
- For one, we’re breathing in airborne toxins that were never meant to inhale.
- Secondly, they deplete the oxygen in the air that we need to breathe.
Ironically, our bodies use oxygen to get rid of toxins by…you guessed it…oxygenating them.
These airborne poisons bring on restlessness, dizziness, lethargy and nausea. They shred our skin, shed our hair and affect our ability to focus, which is no surprise considering they suck the oxygen out of our blood.
Is staying inside better?
Home Sweet Work
Most of us spend the majority of our time at home, work, school or some other in-door facility.
Whew! So, we’re safe from the deceptive “Fresh Air Scare” outside, right?
You guessed it! Wrong!
Here is what you may find inside…
- Mildew (scrubbing it from your shower wall is like freeing a violent prisoner, which becomes airborne and assaults you)
- Lead paint fumes (this admittedly archaic threat has been sponged from most of our dwellings, but it is, unfortunately, still a gross reality in some places)
- Pet dander (eww)
This possibly means billions of microorganisms are flowing in and out of your body at any given time, in any given place. Many of them stick around because they like you and would like nothing better than to see you die so that they may live and move on to the next sucker. As your body decomposes, they mercilessly head back into the air. Ah…the cruel circle of life!
There’s nothing you can do to stop it, though you may have been fooled into thinking there is.
“Health products” – Keep Your Armpits Dry and Hydrate Your Thirsty Skin
The toxic chemicals in health and beauty products have been known to contain engine degreasers. So, you have to watch the labels carefully.
What’s that, you say? You use antioxidant scrubs, lotions, even eye and face creams. So you are okay?
Many of the products we use everyday ring the dinner bell for toxin carrying free radicals – and you find them in the darndest places.
See, the FDA doesn’t have the high standards you do regarding you or your family. So, a product can claim antioxidant goodness no matter what other garbage they pack into it. It boils down to whatever the manufacturers can get away with to satisfy the government and turn a big profit in the process.
You really should thank the FDA. If not for them, these companies would produce even more toxic junk because it is cheap to use and they can charge a lot at the market. Why do you think organic products are so much more expensive? Because the ingredients they use are not so easy to cultivate. That’s why.
So, if you use typical, store-bought anti-aging face cream, body/hand lotions, shampoos and conditioners, then you are hosting a classic toxin party. Hors d’oeuvre?
Even deodorant is a culprit. Some of the chemicals in that stuff have been linked to early onset Alzheimer’s.
You already have to worry about sickness and disease from herbicides, pesticides and antibiotic residue, which is just a fancy-shmancy phrase for antibodies found in the meat, eggs and the milk we consume. Antibiotic residue has been called a “global health hazard” and a “threat to direct toxicity in humans.” Why exacerbate the threat by using toxic chemical sweeteners and slathering yourself with a list of chemicals that takes up half the label of your lotion?
Need A Drink?
A nice bottle of cool refreshing Evian® will flush the toxic creepiness away.
See, the bottled water that’s supposed to be purified, filtered and osmosis-ized sits on shelves for who knows how long. That water can turn bad yet remain sparkling clear. Drinking tap water would be better for you, perish the thought…
Most of the plastic bottles the water comes in are made with BPA (Bisphenol A). If you know all about BPA, then you might want to skip ahead.
This stuff is an endocrine disrupter, which is another fancy term that basically means BPA can mimic your hormones and cause cancerous tumors, deformities, learning disabilities (for developing fetuses), birth defects, abnormal cell growth, abnormal brain development, sexual develop-what? Sounds like a science fiction horror flick. Had enough? Well, just know there’s a few more.
Don’t drink bottled water? Good for you! However, BPA is also used to line cans to protect us from botchullism and rears its ugly head in the many plastic containers we use to store leftovers to transport food from place to place.
Author’s note: never heat food in the microwave without removing it from the plastic container. It stirs that stuff up like gangbusters. It’s like taking a vial of toxic chemicals and mixing it with your lunch. Bad, BAD!
Where Else Is It Found?
“Just one word: plastics.” (2 points if you got the movie reference there!) Here’s a short list of other everyday-products where BPA lives (2.8 million tons of this garbage is produced annually around the globe):
- Food processor bowls
- Baby bottles – yes, baby bottles
- Plastic food ware
- Dental sealants (resins) and appliances
- Teflon coating – yes, some manufacturers are still carelessly using it
- Small kitchen appliances
Save yourself and your family! Store food and fresh water in glass containers or check for BPA-free plastics.
Now, in just a moment, you’ll discover how to purge this stuff and get healthy pronto!
Just Eat It
Sadly, even our foods can trick us. Pesticides on fruits and veggies, mercury in fishes, toxic chemicals and foreign hormones in our meats plus a laundry list of additives and preservatives are in our meals.
Please don’t say you never eat processed foods. Always check for pesticide-free, organically grown produce and only buy meat from cage-free, grass fed, day-spa treated and pampered animals.
You know you’re fibbing!
But, the good news is there are certain foods and combinations of foods that provide fast, safe, and best of all natural opportunities to flush these toxins out of your body. When they creep back in, you just flush ‘em out again. This is your chance (and the only real way) to fight back and reclaim your body and your good health.
The Only Way To Remain Poison-Free In A Toxic World
We have seen that toxins are all around us and they love to infest your body, carrying health-threatening free radicals with them.
But, don’t fret just yet!
Here are a few things you can do to immediately begin flushing toxins from your precious body.
