I came across this quote today which resonated deeply with me. I feel the medical community deeply under-appreciates 1) the negative health consequences of toxins in our environment and 2) the healing available from simply cleansing the body.
Most physicians have no direct experience with deeply detoxifying their body and for the most part, detoxification isn't covered in most medical school courses and textbooks. Plus, there hasn't been any long-term scientific studies done to estimate the cumulative effect of environmental toxins on our health.
"We are all a toxic cesspool of the lifetime accumulation of chemicals from our air, food, and water. U.S. EPA studies of chemicals stored in the fat of humans show that 100% of people had dioxins, PCBs, dichlorobenzene, and xylene while another analysis of the exhaled breath of humans showed carcinogenic benzene in 89% and perchloroethylene in 93%. And these chemicals are just the tip of the iceberg.
For now we have the proof that it is the steady silent accumulation over a lifetime that produces most diseases, including cancer. But medicine merely sees every disease as a deficiency of some drug or surgery, or tells us there is no known cause or cure. There is now no question that these accumulated toxins are a contributor to nearly every disease, symptom, injury and malfunction of the body.
But get ready for the greatest medical discovery of the decade. If we get these ubiquitously unavoidable toxic chemicals out of the body, we can reverse and even cure the most hopeless diseases.
It no longer matters what you call your disease. The label your doctor gives you is meaningless. What matters is what caused it. Learn how to find the underlying causes and get rid of them with the only proven way to reverse disease and slow down aging."
