What are TOXINS that build up in my body?
“A toxin is a chemical or poison that is known to have harmful effects on the body. Toxins can come from food or water, from chemicals used to grow or prepare food, and even from the air that we breathe. Our bodies process those toxins through organs like the liver and kidneys and eliminate them in the form of sweat, urine, and feces.”
So as stated above, you can break toxins down into four categories: toxins from the air, water, food and chemicals in our environments. Here is an example of each:
Air: Pollution refers to the toxic gases and chemicals, such as methane and carbon monoxide, that are released into the atmosphere only to be mixed into the air we breath in and exhale out. Pollution toxins can come from vehicle and factory emissions as well as other sources. A notable air pollutant is also cigarettes. Inhaled tobacco products contain a number of highly toxic ingredients that can negatively effect your body. Tobacco product toxins effect more than the smokers. Second hand smoke can be inhaled in a wide variety of situations: bars, restaurants, casinos, at home from family members and roommates, sporting events, city sidewalks, outdoor cafes and other social gatherings. So even non-smokers should be aware of the toxic ingredients in tobacco smoke.
Water: A number of toxins have been discovered in water. Everything from chlorine, bleach, ammonia and even OTC and prescription medications have been reported to be found in excess in drinking water. An extreme case of toxic water is depicted in the award winning movie Erin brockovich. The true-story tale depicts the legal case against Pacific Gas and Electric, regarding alleged contamination of drinking water with hexavalent chromium, also known as chromium(VI), in the southern California town of Hinkley. Pollutants and chemicals in drinking water have been said to cause everything from depression to illness and even cancer. Water supplies across the globe greatly vary in composition. Spring, mineral and artisan bottled waters have become all the rage in the past decade, although some critics believe that tap water is not as bad as the media depicts.
Food: Side note: toxic foods do not refer to pesticides. That comes next in the ‘chemicals’ category. Toxic foods can refer to food additives, highly processed or genetically modified foods and even chemical ingredients in food recipes such as food dyes (RED 40) and chemical flavorings (MSG and aspartame). A few doctors believe that modern day American diets can actually be considered ‘toxic’ because of the high intake of processed, dead ’empty-calorie’ food items like white flour and sugar. Dr. Robert Lustig, of the University of California San Francisco, says “today’s processed food is loaded with sugars that alter the body’s hormonal balance, creating a “toxic environment” and an “addiction” to food.” -Natural Clinical Practice Scientific Journal. In regards to food additives, I recommend you check out my post: “Food Additives to Avoid (and one’s to keep.)” It details a list of common food additives that are considered ‘toxic’ to the body, such as Food colorings: BLUE 1, BLUE 2, GREEN 3, RED 3, YELLOW 6. Another common food toxin is alcohol. Alcoholic beverages contain ‘possibly toxic’ sulfites, which some individuals are allergic to. More on wine sulfites here.
Chemicals: Chemicals that are toxic may include small amounts of very toxic things, such as pesticide residue dusted onto our freshly-picked, non-washed, non-organic produce. (Always choose organic produce when possible.) High pesticide produce items include non-organic peaches, strawberries, apples, nectarines, bell peppers, celery, cherries, lettuce, imported grapes and pears. Over the counter, prescription and even recreational drugs are all referred to as chemical toxins that can build up in your body over time. Another recent toxic-topic of discussion refers to the amount of mercury in the foods that we eat. High levels of mercury in the body can cause illness and even death. You may recall actor Jeremy Piven who had to leave his run in a Broadway show early due to the ‘mercury poisoning’ diagnosed by his doctor. Jeremy attributed his condition to the incredibly high amounts of fish and sushi he had been eating.
YOUR BODY MAY BE a toxic waste dump. Worried? You should be…
We are exposed to 6 million pounds of mercury and the 2.5 billion pounds other toxic chemicals each year.
Eighty thousand toxic chemicals have been released into our environment since the dawn of the industrial revolution, and very few have been tested for their long-term impact on human health. And let me tell you, the results aren’t pretty for those that have been tested …
How can we not be affected by this massive amount of poison?
According to the nonprofit organization Environmental Working Group, the average newborn baby has 287 known toxins in his or her umbilical cord blood.
If a newborn is exposed to that many toxins, imagine how many you have been exposed to in your life…
Do you think this may be why so many of us are sick and fat today?
The simple truth is that we are living in a sea of toxins and it is destroying our bodies and brains.
The two most important things you need to know to cure disease, create health, and lose weight are:
The role of nutrition in health and disease.
The role of toxins and the importance of detoxification in health and disease.
Unfortunately, you probably aren’t going to learn much about them from your doctor. Most physicians today are still hopelessly ignorant in these areas. They were simply never taught about nutrition and detoxification in medical school.
The reality is that many of you probably have symptoms of chronic toxicity but don’t realize that you’re toxic.
The following is a list of the common symptoms of chronic toxicity. If you suffer from any of the following, detoxifying might be critical for you to get healthy and feel good again:
- Muscle aches
- Joint pain
- Sinus congestion
- Postnasal drip
- Excessive sinus problems
- Foul-smelling stools
- Sleep problems
- Difficulty concentrating
- Food cravings
- Water retention
- Trouble losing weight
- Skin problems
- Canker sores
- Puffy, dark circles under the eyes
- Premenstrual syndrome
- Other menstrual disorders
- Bad breath
But how do you detoxify? And what does that word even mean? Let’s look a little more closely at what detoxification is.
What are Toxicity and Detoxification?
When you hear the word “detox” you might think drug detox or alcohol detox or wheatgrass enemas. That’s not what I am talking about.
I am referring to the science of how our bodies get rid of waste. If waste builds up, we get sick. And the key is to figure out how to enhance your body’s capacity to detoxify and get rid of waste while minimizing your exposure to toxins.
This is so important, because many diseases of our society are actually related to toxicity.
Here are some of the diseases you may suffer from if you are toxic:
- Parkinson’s disease
- Alzheimer’s disease Dementia
- Attention deficit disorder
- Depression and other mood disorders
- Heart disease
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Autoimmune disease
- Food allergies
- Digestive diseases like Crohn’s disease, ulcers, and colitis
- Menstrual problems like heavy bleeding, cramps, PMS, menopausal symptoms, mood changes and hot flashes
With so many conditions on that list, it might seem that everyone is toxic.
That may be true to differing degrees …
Problems with detoxification form one of the roots of illness–and signify one of the core systems in the body that must be working well for you to be healthy. If you feel lousy, it’s likely you’re toxic.
It is important to understand why we are toxic and how we can detoxify. I will explain how you can detoxify a little later, but first I want to tell you about where toxins come from and how we are overloaded.
To understand toxicity, you must understand the concept of “total load.”
Total load is the total amount of stressors on your system at any one time–it’s like what happens when a glass fills over with water. It takes a certain amount of water to fill the glass and then, after a certain point, you put more in and it overflows.
When our detoxification system is overwhelmed, it gets overloaded. That’s when we start developing symptoms and getting sick, but it may take years of accumulated stress and toxins to get to that point.
Here are some, but not all, of the factors that can contribute to your total toxic load:
- Exposure to heavy metals like mercury and lead, petrochemicals, residues, pesticides, and fertilizers.
- Food allergies, environmental allergies, molds, and toxins from molds.
- Eating a standard American diet.
- Mental, emotional, and spiritual toxins — isolation, loneliness, anger, jealousy, and hostility, all of which translate into toxins in our system.
- Medications can sometimes be toxins. Often we need medications, but the reality is that most of us are over medicated and use medications to treat problems for which there are better solutions, such as lifestyle and diet.
- Internal toxins–things like bacteria, fungus, and yeast inside our gut as well as hormonal and metabolic toxins that we need to eliminate.
That’s a lot of toxins for our bodies to manage.
You may wonder: Why aren’t we all sick, given this incredible load of toxins?
The answer is simple.
It is because each of us is genetically and biochemically unique. Some of us are good at getting rid of toxins and waste, and others are not.
I am not. That is why I developed chronic fatigue syndrome.
I became overloaded with mercury and couldn’t get rid of it because I am missing a gene for GSTM1–a critical detoxifying enzyme for mercury. But by learning to support my system and how to detoxify, I was able to cure myself of a seemingly incurable condition.
10 Simple Steps to Enhance Detoxification
Proper detoxification is so essential for health that you need to start enhancing your body’s ability to detoxify today. Here is how to do it:
Drink Clean — Drink plenty of clean water, at least eight to ten glasses of filtered water a day.
Eliminate Properly — Keep your bowels moving, at least once or twice a day. And if you can’t get going, then you need some help. This can include taking two tablespoons of ground flax seeds and taking acidophilus and extra magnesium citrate capsules. If you have any chronic diseases or problems, you have to be careful about taking supplements and should work with your doctor.
Eat Clean — You should also eat organic produce and animal products to eliminate the toxins, hormones, and antibiotics in your food.
Eat Detoxifying Food — You should eat 8 to 10 servings of colorful fruits and vegetables a day, particularly family of the cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, collards, kale, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi) and the garlic family (garlic and onions), which help increase sulfur in the body and help detoxification.
Minimize Drugs — Avoid stimulants, sedatives, and drugs, such as caffeine and nicotine, and try to reduce alcohol intake.
Get Moving — Exercise five days a week with focus on conditioning your cardiovascular system, strengthening exercises, and stretching exercises.
Avoid the White Menace — This includes white flour and white sugar.
Sweat — Sweat profusely at least three times a week, using a sauna, steam, or a detox bath.
Supplement — Take a high-quality multivitamin and mineral supplement.
Relax — Relax deeply every day to get your nervous system in a state of calm, rest, and relaxation.
Simply following these steps will help to correct problems caused by toxicity, maximize your body’s own detoxification capacity, and help you safely eliminate toxins stores in your body.
Depending on your symptoms, genetic predispositions and environmental exposures, you may need different levels of nutrients and types of treatment, but this is an excellent way to get started on detoxification today.
Remember, getting rid of toxins and learning how to optimize your detoxification system is essential for creating lifelong vibrant health.
Eat A Bulletproof Diet
This is best way to get rid of toxins guaranteed. Not only does it avoid toxins from food, it also helps you remove toxins stored in your body’s tissues. The high fat diet teaches your body to access body fat stores. With a little intermittent fasting – you can remove a lot of toxins that would stay trapped in your cells. When you lose weight (if you need to), you may also release toxins from fat cells, some people have reported feeling a little under the weather before feeling amazing when they first switch over, this may be why. Others go straight to feeling better.
Drink clean water and avoid plastic bottles.
Public water contains of fluoride, chlorine, and other nasty chemicals. Bottled water is okay in small amounts, but the BPA can be a problem with prolonged use. A report from the CDC found BPA in 92.6% of adults. When you remove BPA containing items from your diet for just three days, you can reduce your BPA levels by around 66%. Canned food and shopping receipts are also sources of BPA.
Well water is a safer option over bottled water. If you can’t get a well, install a water filter (for the sink and shower).
Avoid air fresheners, new plastics, and harsh cleaning agents.
If it’s synthetic and has a strong smell – it’s probably toxic. New cars, carpets, and plastic clothing should either be washed or left to air out before you use them. Check out Rodale.com for alternative deodorants and cleaning products.
Protect yourself from EMF’s.
Electronic devices like cell phones and laptops produce electromagnetic radiation. This kind of radiation may damage sperm quality, cause headaches, behavioral problems, disturb sleep and for some cause skin irritation. While the research is conflicting, the World Health Organization thought it prudent to establish a project to study EMF’s for health concerns, like an increase in certain kinds of cancers. Here are eight ways to avoid EMF’s
Install EMF filters in your house.
Hold cell phones/laptops 10-20mm away from your skin at all times.
Turn your cell phone on “airplane mode” when it’s in your pocket.
Use a headset or ear buds for speaking.
Use an anti-EMF case like Pong for your iPhone, Android, or Blackberry.
Keep your cell phone at least one inch from your skin while talking.
Avoid using your cell phone when the signal is weak.
Use a different side of your head to talk on the phone to disperse the radiation across both sides.
There are many other ways to reduce toxin exposure, you may find these are very effective and simple.
There are some supplements that can be extremely effective at removing toxins.
