TOXINS - The
Battle for Health Rages On.
Where do we
begin? It seems as if
everything in life is toxic - the air,
the ocean, rivers and lakes, the soil,
our food, our home and offices,
prescribed medications and medical
protocols, cosmetics, clothing, toys,
furniture, electronic technology etc,
etc. Daily life on planet earth is
overwhelmingly filled with toxins.
As 1 in 3 people
will get cancer,
obesity numbers continue to rise, respiratory
illnesses increase, Alzheimer's
and Parkinson's are the sixth
leading cause of death in the USA, what do we
do? We must take back control and prevent these
diseases. It is becoming
critical to focus on PREVENTION, rather
than wait until disease sets in. It is no longer
a casual dinner conversation about 'if', but a
serious course of action to prevent 'when'.
The main toxins
that decide our health, are still what we think
and feel, and what we eat, in other words, emotions
and diet. All other toxins
- such as environmental toxins, household
chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs - serve as
triggers to an already compromised immune
system. Prevention of
illness and disease is determined by the choices
you make, every single day. Some toxins we have
no control over, but many we do. The goal is to
lessen and remove as many as possible.
Here follows a light
breakdown of common daily toxins we have to
deal with and solutions we can choose.
We encourage you the reader to research further,
as this subject can fill many volumes of books!
This website already covers in greater detail
some of the toxins listed below, so links have
The Mind/Body Connection - The Source
Of Physical Toxins.
Thoughts and emotions, just like food, are
either negative or positive, acid or alkaline.
Emotional energy floods every cell of the body
24/7. Prolonged or frequent acid emotions, lower
the immune system, acidify the cells, and
manifest sooner or later as a physical illness,
triggered by diet and/or environmental toxins,
drugs and chemicals.
When the mind and
emotions are calm and peaceful, and the immune
system is therefore strong and functioning, it
is difficult to get sick. Ever wonder why some
people can be surrounded by infectious or
contagious disease and yet remain well?
Stress, Anger, Grief,
Fear, Depression, Shame, Guilt.
Hatred, bitterness, jealousy, intolerance,
resentment towards others.
Also applicable are feeling worthless,
feeling lost, being overwhelmed, feeling
humiliated, feeling unsupported, loneliness
and self abuse, all of which transform into
the emotions listed above.
Unlike Western orthodox
medicine who have no training and really
don't care, Traditional Chinese Medicine
(TCM), goes into depth on how the emotions
affect the body and what specific body area is
affected. The source of illness,
negative, acidic energy from emotional
and mental imbalance, MUST be addressed
sooner or later, in order to heal the
anyone interested in TCM, Greek and Tibetan
medicine, or Feng
Shui, you may enjoy the
following simple breakdown of the connection
between the elements, the body, and
emotional characteristics ...
Heart and Small Intestine - Summer, South:
Joy, passion, compassion,
honesty, happiness, charismatic, sociable OR
hatred, intolerance, judgmental, deceitful -
agitation, insomnia, palpitations, nervous
laughter, stress. Yes, we can die of
a broken heart.
Stomach, Spleen, Pancreas -
Late Summer, Center.
Stable, grounded, trustful, loyal, nurturing
OR worry, anxiety, mistrustful -
bloating, stomach ache, weight
gain, gastritis, ulcers.
- Lungs, Skin, Large Intestine - Autumn, West.
Structured, logical, self-controlled,
disciplined OR overly critical, pompous, grief,
sadness, depression - tears, chronic respiratory
illness, asthma, constipation, diarrhea.
Kidneys, Bladder - Winter, North.
Sensitive, gentle, imaginative, creative OR
emotional vulnerability, isolated, phobic,
shock, fright, fear - incontinence,
sexual problems, dry skin, dark circles under
Liver, Gall Bladder (which produce and store
bile respectively) - Springtime, East.
Flexible, youthful, independent, clear vision,
growth OR anger, frustration,
resentment, jealousy, indecisive - headaches,
migraine, tension in neck and shoulders, eye
problems, high blood pressure.
Feel, allow, release and LET GO of emotional
states as they happen. Meditate, keep a journal,
practice yoga or Tai Chi, take up gardening,
swimming, running, hiking or biking, try art,
music or dance, or become a volunteer and help
others ... do whatever gives you happiness and
peace, so as to work on letting go and
eliminating negative emotions from your body,
until you are balanced and live from a state of
love, compassion, tolerance and kindness,
towards yourself and towards others.
An acidic diet serves as a
trigger to an emotionally toxic mind. It
simply becomes a question of time as to how fast
the disease manifests physically. Global obesity
is due to terrible diets filled with chemicals,
antibiotics, hormones, dyes and artificial
ingredients, all of which cause terrible
diseases and illness. The oceans, the soil and
the air is polluted like never before, which
mean food sources are already compromised.
1) Beef: Cattle feed is toxic and acidic -
cattle are pumped full of growth hormones
and antibiotics - slaughter inflicts
emotional pain and physical suffering.
Red meat contains carnitine which causes
cardiovascular disease and cancer. Increased
risk of colorectal cancer and Type 2
2) Chicken: Pumped full of
antibiotics and additives - chicken feed is
toxic - chickens suffer severe
abuse and torture including during death.
Detectable levels of E.Coli in carcasses.
3) Fish: Multiple
chemicals including mercury and radiation -
worms and parasites.
Farm Raised Fish: PCB's (synthetic chemicals),
dioxins, insecticides such as DDT, dyes and
antibiotics - worms and parasites.
Free range, grass fed, natural feed, cage
free, and wild caught.
Pasteurized Cows Milk: Ingredient caesin
which is incompatible with human body - milk
contains hormones and antibiotics, blood and
pus. Milk was never meant for humans, only
baby cows. No other species on earth drinks
the milk of another!

and type 2 diabetes
Sugar has deadly effects on the human body
including feeding cancer and aging the body.
Eat natural whole foods, and choose raw
chocolate or fruit as your natural go to for
a sugar fix.
Pesticides and Herbicides are
sprayed on crops by Monsanto who refuse to
allow food labels warning the public.
All GMO's created by Monsanto must be avoided.
Exact long-term health repercussions are
still unfolding and unknown. Monsanto refuses to
allow studies or clinical trials, or to reveal
the exact toxicity and damage to human bodies
and the environment. Most
heavily sprayed crops to avoid are wheat, corn,
soy beans, coffee - soft skinned fruit and leafy
Canned food - plastic can lining is toxic -
Boxed food, processed food and frozen food -
practically zero nutrition, food is dead.
Additives, preservatives, food coloring and dyes
- if you can't read or understand the
ingredients, why are you eating it?
Smoked and Cured
foods - Hot Dogs, Luncheon Meats.
Fried Food - highly
Margerine and canola oil -
deadly carcinogens. All oils when heated
Nuts - contain
mold. Peanuts are toxic.
- creates glycation
which creates aging and wrinkles.
Eat natural, organic whole foods. Bake, boil or
steam to cook. Store food and liquids in glass
containers only. Plastic bottles and containers
leech toxins into the content, especially if
exposed to heat (water bottles left in the car).
FYI: If you
don't understand the ingredients, why are
you putting it in your mouth? Basically, if
it's man made, don't eat it.
- Cause cancer.
Western Medical Toxins - Doctors,
Oncologists, Hospitals, Dentists.
Doctors NEVER ask what is the SOURCE of your
illness, your disease, your cancer.
THE SOURCE, and the body may well slowly
heal itself and recover.
Doctors are trained to push drugs
and surgery, to temporarily band-aid the
Feed the symptoms with toxic chemicals such
as vaccinations, prescription drugs or
chemo, and reap the consequences.

Ritalin is equivalent to COCAINE, and has an
even more powerful potency.
Adderoll, used for ADHD, is equivalent to METH.
Oxycontin, a painkiller, is equivalent to
Western orthodox medicine should be called
alternative medicine, because the REAL medicine
is the original, natural medicines, natural
foods and therapies which come from nature and
metaphysics. Western health care has gone
horribly wrong and is a leading cause of death
in the USA.
More and more patients leave hospital sicker
than they went in, often contracting new illness
during their stay. Avoid being in hospital, keep
the stay as short as possible.
Root Canals -
trapped bacteria migrate via meridians to infect
and cause disease such as breast cancer.

A/C - Only use when you have to. Keep the filter
clean, replace often.
Check your home for the above, replace all toxic
materials with natural, non-toxic. Do not use a
wood burning fire inside the home.
Another solution is hemp.
Industrial Hemp is said to have 25,000 uses.
Industrial Hemp can be used to replace thousands
of toxic chemical-laced and petroleum-based
products with non-toxic products. From hemp
clothing to hemp homes. Hemp also creates jobs.

impairment. Commonly used everyday in cookware,
soda cans, aluminum foils, pesticides, pain
killers, anti-diarrhea medicines,
antiperspirants, antacids, toothpastes, nasal
sprays, cigarette filters and some metal
cleaners. Also included in vaccinations such as
the flu shot.
Heavy Metal Toxins:
contributes to liver and kidney damage,
weakness, diarrhea, muscle spasms, headaches,
and is an endocrine disruptor. Sources include
baby formula, pesticides, beer, tap water, table
salt, paints, commercial imports and other
chemical products. Arsenic is currently used for
induction and consolidation chemotherapy for
acute promyelocytic leukemia and other cancers.
Consumer Reports study suggests the extremely
toxic inorganic arsenic can get into water and
soil from lead-arsenate insecticides. From
there, rice can absorb that toxin like a sponge.
concentrates in the kidney, liver and other
organs. High concentration is also deposited in
the pancreas and salivary glands. Considered
more toxic than either mercury or lead, it
contributes to high blood pressure, heart
disease, cancer, fatigue, arthritis, violence,
infections, back pain and other conditions.
Sources are cigarette or marijuana smoke,
instant coffee, cola drinks, refined grains,
processed meats and tap water. Also found in
plastics, paint, motor oil, exhaust fumes and
incineration of rubber products. Solder used to
seal metal cans is a common source of cadmium.
Cadmium toxicity is enhanced and increasing due
deficiency in our diet, which when
present is protective against cadmium. Zinc is
depleted in foods due to contaminated soil.
associated with fatigue, heart disease, cancer
and renal problems. Chlorine is required in the
body, and found in salt and other foods. Many
chlorinated compounds, however, are highly
toxic. These include chlorinated tap water,
chlorinated hydrocarbons used in pesticides and
other chemicals, bathing in chlorinated water,
pools and hot tubs, and the use of chlorine
bleach and other chlorine-containing household
of the most prevalent metabolic dysfunctions
today are related in some way to a copper
imbalance. Imbalance contributes to emotional
conditions, depression, spaciness, childhood
hyperactivity, learning disabilities, skin
problems, rheumatoid arthritis, acne, hair loss,
cancer, migraine headaches, anorexia, phobias,
diabetes and premenstrual tension.
Associated with zinc deficiency (like
cadmium toxicity - see above), adrenal
exhaustion is very common.
Copper plumbing, found in the majority of homes
in the USA, leeches into the water supply. Water
coolers and ice makers in refrigerators also use
copper tubing. The longer water sits, it
accumulates dangerously high levels of copper.
Other sources include cookware, vitamin and
prenatal supplements, municipal drinking water
and vegetarian proteins such as soybeans, tofu,
nuts and seeds, and soy based food such as fast
food hamburgers Copper elimination in a sauna
may have a rotten egg odor.
contributes to brown staining of the teeth,
weakened bones, hip fractures, hypothyroidism,
mental impairment, birth defects, sterility and
cancer. Fluoride compounds are found in
pesticides, air pollution, toothpastes, and are
added to many water supplies. Global studies
have proven minor to zero benefit of fluoride
for tooth decay.
added to all white flour products such as
breads, crackers, pasta and pastry, beer and red
wine. It is well absorbed from animal products,
especially meats, shellfish and animal organs.
Vegetables high in iron include green leafy
vegetables such as kale, collard, mustard
greens, Swiss chard and spinach.
Iron can accumulate to help support weak adrenal
glands. It is stored in the liver and other
organs but iron overload may contribute to
joint pain, sudden onset of shortness of breath,
heart failure, diabetes, liver disease which
leads to cancer, thyroid problems. Iron deposits

widely distributed in the environment and
contributes to more than 100 conditions
including neuromuscular and bone diseases (lead
incorporates itself into the bones in place of
calcium), fractures, mental retardation
(interferes with iodine uptake by the thyroid),
hyperactivity, anemia (destruction of red blood
cells) and impairs excretion of uric acid.
Sources of lead include old paint, inks,
pesticides, plumbing, hair dyes and tints which
is absorbed thu the scalp, soldered products and
leaded gasoline. Cigarette smoke is contaminated
with lead due to lead arsenate insecticides
sprayed on tobacco. Food cans are sealed with
lead solder are a prime source of ingested lead,
especially acidic foods such as tomatoes.
Iron deficiency increases lead absorption, as
does summertime heat. Children are more affected
by lead poisoning than adults. Sauna therapy may
produce a sickly sweet odor as it is
toxicity is present in almost everyone today.
Mercury is found in silver amalgam dental
fillings (alternatives are gold alloys and
composite quartz-resin materials), tuna (do not
eat more than three times a month - sushi
included) swordfish and whale meat, contact lens
solution, skin whitening products, multiple
vaccines, diuretics, some hemorrhoid
medications, a common ingredient in antiseptics.
Mercury in industrial waste is a common water
contaminant, and widely used in swimming pool
algicides, floor waxes, adhesives, fluorescent
light-bulbs, fabric softener. Human generated,
airborne mercury contamination includes cement
production, gold production, crematoriums,
battery and explosives production, and coal
burning power plants. Mercury and its compounds
are commonly used in chemical laboratories,
hospitals and dental clinics.
Mercury is easily absorbed through the lungs,
the gastrointestinal tract and the skin. The
main organ target is the kidneys, also deposited
in the brain, the thyroid and pituitary glands,
impairment of adrenal activity can occur and
hypothyroidism. Other symptoms are headaches,
skin rashes and various emotional disturbances.
Common sensory effects of mercury toxicity area
tingling sensations, limb pain, visual and
auditory disturbances and lack of co-ordination.
Mercury toxicity causes impairment of copper
metabolism, and is a common cause of hair loss.
