Every day you are exposed to toxins that find their way into the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the food you eat. Your body works hard, trying to process and eliminate these dangerous substances by transforming and then excreting them through your lungs, liver, kidneys, skin, and bowels. Unfortunately, many times these toxins do not exit your body effectively. They circulate back into your bloodstream and body tissues and often become stored in our fat tissues.
These toxins can accumulate in your body, sometimes over the course of many years, and can contribute to conditions such as:
In recent history, we have witnessed a drastic change in the chemistry of the environment in which we live. For example, in 2000 alone, more than 4 billion pounds of chemicals were released into the ground, threatening a portion of the soil we grow our food in and the natural underground water tables that supply some of our drinking water. Over 260 million pounds of chemicals were also discharged into surface waters such as lakes and rivers. Nearly 2 billion pounds of chemical emissions were pumped into the air we breathe. A grand total of over 6 billion pounds of chemical pollutants were released into the environment we eat, breathe and live in–all in just one year.
Consider also our homes and daily lives. We encounter toxic substances every day, often in some very unsuspected places. Not only in more apparent substances like cleaning products, bug repellants, or air fresheners, but also in new upholstery, electronics, mattresses, and paint fumes –just to name the most common toxic offenders. Even in our skin and hair care products and cosmetics, which are often petroleum based or contain harsh preservatives – any compound that comes in contact with our skin has the high likelihood of being absorbed into our bodies. Also, many people don’t think twice about using chemical fertilizers on their lawns, and toxic pesticides on their garden flowers – themselves releasing more chemicals into their immediate surroundings.
What we breathe and put on our bodies is so important, and we cannot forget the foods we put into our body as being a prime contributor to potential toxic load. Conventional food production involves synthetic fertilizers and / or chemical pesticides, residues of which can be found in the foods we eat. Food processing refines away much of the nutritional value of our food, and so often replaces it with artificial colorings, preservatives, artificial flavors and colors, additives, etc. Considering that the average North American eats approximately 1000lbs of food in one year, the average North American diet is a significant part of contributing to the toxins entering our bodies! This is why Detoxification Programs are crucial.
