External & Internal Toxins

Toxicity is of much greater concern in the twentieth century than ever before. Toxicity occurs on two basic levels - external and internal. Externally, we inhale and ingest a vast array of toxic compounds arising from pesticides, chemicals, inhalants, exhaust fumes, drugs, antibiotics, heavy metals and radiation. These toxic compounds are present in the air, water and food that we consume.
We have turned to technology and chemistry to help increase the world’s production of food. This has resulted in the adulteration of foods rich in starches, sugars, stimulants, pasteurized dairy products and high levels of saturated fats. These foods are thought to burden the liver and the immune system.

Internally, our body produces toxins through its normal everyday functions. Bodily activities generate toxic substances that need to be eliminated. When these toxins are not eliminated, they cause inflammation of the cells and tissues, blocking normal functions on a cellular, organ, and whole-body level.

Poor digestion, a sluggish colon, inadequate elimination of toxins through the digestive tract and the skin and the reduced function of the liver and kidneys, all contribute to increased levels of toxicity. Continuous stress also adds to the toxic load.

Furthermore, with a poor digestive tract, there can be an increased growth in bacteria and yeasts which ferments undigested food residues, turning them into reactive compounds and when these are reabsorbed in the body, the process is known as "autointoxication".
