The 6 Stresses of Health

Toxicity

“The air we breathe, the absolute necessity of life, is contaminated with the exhaust fumes from road traffic, the invisibly tiny particles that fly off tires and nestle in your lungs, the residues of aircraft fuel descending from the sky and the poisonous fumes of countless industrial procedures belching out of factory chimneys or from neighborhood dry cleaning establishments. Water, another basic essential of life is just as bad. It's contaminated with chlorine and fluoride and with the residues of a wide variety of drugs, which resist all existing purification techniques (except distillation).  And Industrial and Agricultural run-off contaminates our rivers and lakes.

Electrical pollution such as cell phones, microwaves, cell phone and radar antennae, microwaves, television sets and computers are the latest additions to environmental pollutants that increase our toxicity levels.

Food processing with chemical additives, artificial flavors, colors and dyes, as well as preservatives, commonly called “Food Cosmetics” are used for the purpose of extending the shelf life almost indefinitely, making the products look more attractive and substituting artificial flavors for the missing ones.  These are added to our food solely for the purpose of serving the profit centered interests of the manufacturers and have nothing to do with healthy nutrition. 
Highly poisonous pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and other chemicals used in commercial agriculture leave residues on the plants that become our food. Many of these poisons permeate the produce and cannot be removed by washing.

And lastly, one of the biggest contributors of all, to our toxicity accumulation problem, are the pharmaceutical and drug companies.  There are millions of synthetic drugs being prescribed to us for every condition known to man.  These drugs may fix or “cover up” the problem you are experiencing but at what expense?  The list of side effects to these drugs can be quite extensive, which will warrant a need for more drugs to cover up the side effects those drugs have caused.  This can create a never-ending cycle. ALL DRUGS HAVE SIDE EFFECTS and can damage the human body.


 
Toxicity


These are just some examples of the variety of methods we accumulate toxins in our bodies.  There are thousands of other ways we surround ourselves with, and accumulate poisons that are slowly killing us. 

Our detoxifying organs; the kidneys, the liver, the bowels and colon, the lungs, the skin, the gall bladder and our lymphatic system are all in place to help rid us of unnecessary waste and toxicity accumulation.  However, with today’s demanding lifestyle, enhanced food, environmentally polluted, and technologically advanced world, even an intelligent machine like our bodies, needs help to keep us thriving and experiencing good health. WE NEED HELP AND THE BODY NEEDS A BREAK!  We need to be more aware of how we are destroying ourselves and the environment that surrounds us.  WE MUST AID OUR BODY IN BECOMING HEALTHIER BY DETOXIFYING THESE POISONS WE HAVE ACCUMULATED.


What would happen if you put diesel fuel in your gasoline engine?
What would happen if you never changed your car's oil?
What would happen if you never changed your car's oil and air filters?


BAD THINGS WOULD EVENTUALLY OCCUR TO YOUR CAR AND BAD THINGS WILL EVENTUALLY OCCUR IF YOU DON’T HELP YOUR BODY FILTER OUT THE TOXINS YOU’VE ACCUMULATED OVER THE YEARS!!!
