You Are What You Eat
The old adage you are what you eat is fast being replaced by the more accurate you are what you absorb. And what we’re absorbing is shocking.
In a amazing book called The Detox Revolution : A Powerful New Program for Boosting Your Body’s Ability to Fight Cancer and Other Diseases, by Thomas J Slaga, PhD., and Robin Keuneke – the authors examine the toxicity of Americans, the causes for it, and outline a plan to rid your body of such toxins and life a healthier life. Here we at LuxSauna examine some of the book’s findings.
Toxic heavy metals find their way into our bodies daily. Cosmetics, antacids, car and truck exhaust, tuna fish, bass and trout, seafood, shellfish, canned foods, lipstick, buffered aspirin, tobacco smoke, drinking water, amalgam “silver” dental fillings, laxatives, vaccines, fertilizers, processed cheese, industrial pollution, insecticides, herbicides, medications, and many more, contain toxic heavy metals. Toxic heavy metal contamination is so pervasive in our environment that it is no longer a question of whether one has been exposed to toxins, but rather the level of exposure. Toxic heavy metals in your body affect three main areas: the nervous system, cardiovascular system and immune system. Heavy metals, such as mercury, lead, arsenic, nickel, aluminum and others disrupt nerve cell growth and metabolism and have been implicated in a variety of conditions.
Symptoms pke indigestion, bloating, headaches, fatigue, and allergies, as well as the more severe diseases of our time, like cancer, Alzheimer’s, lupus, muscular dystrophy, environmental illnesses, and fibromyalgia, may all be connected directly or indirectly to some form of toxic overload.
Unfortunately, each of us is bombarded by toxins daily through preservatives, pesticides and other food additives, chemicals in tap water, air pollution, pharmaceuticals, mercury in dental fillings, and even hidden external stressors such as radiation.
So the question is: how can we detoxify our bodies in order to give good nutrition, exercise, and supplements the optimal chance they need to help us stay healthy Of course, there are a number of detoxification methods which you will learn more about in this section.
