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 illness 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
checklist, 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 been included.
The Mind/Body Connection
The Source Of Physical
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
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 body.
For 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
Earth - Stomach,
Spleen, Pancreas - Late Summer, Center.
Stable, grounded, trustful, loyal, nurturing
OR worry, anxiety, mistrustful - fatigue, gas,
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

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
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
Red meat contains carnitine which causes
cardiovascular disease and cancer. Increased risk
of colorectal cancer and Type 2 diabetes.
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
Farm Raised Fish: PCB's (synthetic chemicals),
dioxins, insecticides such as DDT, dyes and
antibiotics - worms and parasites.

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!
mucous by-product from cheese or from cows milk.
Whey is exposed to acid processing, and then mixed
with artificial sweeteners and chemicals to create
putrid protein. Whey is used as a filler in breads
and pastries, many boxed foods, and eaten in
copious amounts in the form of protein bars and
all ingredients on store bought products and if
whey is an ingredient, put the product back on the
White Sugar: Found
in alcohol, beverages and almost every processed
food, fast food, boxed and canned food, not to
mention candy, cookies and cakes.
Artificial Sugars: Aspartame,
Saccharin, Splenda, Nutrasweet - main ingredient
in all Diet Sodas.
Sugar is the reason
society is obese worldwide and type 2 diabetes is
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 veggies.
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 carciogenic.
Margerine and canola oil - deadly carcinogens. All
oils when heated become carcinogenic.
Nuts - contain mold.
Peanuts are toxic.
Cooked food -
which creates aging and wrinkles.
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
Western Medical Toxins
Doctors NEVER ask what is the SOURCE of your
illness, your disease, your cancer.

itself and recover.
Doctors are trained to push drugs and surgery,
to temporarily band-aid the SYMPTOMS only.
Feed the symptoms with toxic chemicals such as
vaccinations, prescription drugs or chemo, and
reap the consequences.
Radiation - Cause secondary
cancers and further destruction of the already
compromised immune system.

leading cause of liver damage and acute liver
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 HEROIN.
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.
Dental Amalgams - mercury.
Replace root canals with laser caps. Remove all

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.

Microwave Ovens - changes molecular structure of
food and changes the DNA of the body.
Cookware - Teflon, aluminum and copper leech onto
the food, becoming deadly carcinogens.
Refrigerator - Be aware that copper pipelines
contaminate water maker.
Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs - The swirly light
bulbs contain mercury.
Throw away the microwave and use the oven. Change
cookware to cast iron or stainless steel. Use
EMF - Cell phone,
computer - electric clocks, electric blankets,
Speak on speakerphone only, keep the mobile phone
away from your head. Never sleep with a cell phone
near you. Never carry the cell phone on your body.
Sit as far away from computer as possible when
working and dim the light. Replace electric clocks
with old fashioned battery clocks. Use regular
blankets and ditch the electric one.
Get an EMF meter and check to see if there are any
EMF clouds in your home. If so, get the electrical
wiring checked. If not possible, turn off the
breaker for the affected areas and use lamps.
before we ALL have to wear a mask?
Air Pollution - Exhaust fumes, diesel fumes,
factory and refinery fumes, smog - Many countries
choose to wear a mask to protect the lungs.
Soil Pollution - Rivers and lakes. Contaminated
water feeds crops, fish and animal life.
Pesticides and airborne pollution. Trash thrown
away indiscriminately including many products that
are not biodegradable such as plastic bag and
magnetic frequencies) - Power lines and
transformers. Move if you live too close.
SMART Meters - Remove or move! These cause serious
illness, ranging from migraines to hair loss and
Cigarettes - Ingredient cadmium encourages cancer
and the destruction of various body systems.
Unfortunately nothing can be done to avoid these
airborne chemicals besides move to a remote area.
Close windows during days of heavy spraying.
radiation and sewage - be careful where you swim.
Do not ingest the water. Do not eat fish known to
live in oceans of radiation such as the Gulf of
Mexico and now unfortunately the Pacific ocean
poisoned by the ongoing radiation from Japan.
is associated with Alzheimer’s disease, memory
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 toxicity is enhanced and increasing due to
in our diet, which when present is protective
against cadmium. Zinc is depleted in foods due to
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 products.
Copper Many 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
Iron is 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
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 in the
amygdala, a portion of the brain associated with
feelings of anger, irritability and hostility.
Lead is 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. Mercury
elimination, if heavy, may be accompanied by a fishy
odor during a sauna session.

Remove all offending sources and products. Far Infrared is used
to help prevent toxin accumulation and to promote
and support toxin elimination including heavy metals. Far infrared is also used in
Europe to combat and kill cancer.
