A lot of people don't understand the importance of detoxifying their body on a regular basis.
A lot of people don't believe that chronic disease can literally disappear simply from detoxifying the body.
A lot of people don't get the title of my previous blog post about detoxification being the "Greatest Medical Discovery of the Decade".
And many people I know, don't understand why I left a high paying accounting job to answer the calling of starting a detoxification consulting practice.
Well, I've come across an article to send those that are still confused.
For the first time ever, researchers have specifically analyzed the chemical composition of people's urine and drum roll please...
2,282 environmental chemicals can be found in your urine. And those are just the ones the body could readily remove!
We are being bombarded with toxins every day. And dealing with each of those toxins puts a heavy strain on all of our organs and glands. Each of those toxins disrupts the function of our cells. Disrupted cellular function produces symptoms. A list of symptoms is usually diagnosed as a "disease". Diseases and symptoms go away when people detoxify their bodies.
You see how this all fits together?
By the way, the urine samples were taken from 22 "healthy" adults. Which goes to further prove, that the definition of health is not necessarily the "absence" of symptoms.
It's going to take scientific research and your doctors awhile to get up to speed on the cumulative effect that environmental effects are having on our body and the link between accumulated toxicity and chronic disease.
In the meantime, be proactive and add detoxification to your regular health regimen.
Step 1: Reduce incoming toxins.
Step 2: Remove existing toxins.
Step 3: Repair cells damaged and weakened due to being subjected to years of toxic accumulation.
What's In Your Pee?
By Emily Main
When nature calls, you answer. Then you flush and probably pay little mind to what goes down the pipes. But scientists are learning that your urine is a gold mine (no pun intended) of information about what's going on in your body and what you're being exposed to every day.
For the first time ever, scientists have analyzed the chemical composition of urine and discovered that it contains 3,079 compounds, which include not only the general waste by-products from all the biological from processes your body performs to keep you alive, but also chemicals from the foods, drinks, and drugs you consume and the environmental contaminants you’re exposed to. Surprisingly, 2,282—roughly three-fourths—of those compounds are from environmental chemicals found in cosmetics, household goods, food, and drugs. The researchers found evidence of hormone disruptors like bisphenol A and phthalates, pesticides, and the flame-retardant chemicals added to furniture and building materials.
The goal of the study was to better understand the urine "metabolome," a term that refers to all the metabolites (breakdown products) of chemicals and biological materials that you consume or come into contact with every day. But the information revealed about chemicals in urine could become invaluable to researchers looking to determine everyday chemical and pollution exposures. The urine samples used in the study came from 22 healthy adults, and the researchers combined what they detected in those adults with other scientific studies that have analyzed the content of the average person's urine.
Their research was published in the journal PLoS One and in a free online database, urinemetabolome.ca.
Why bother? In addition to giving doctors a better sense of what chemicals you're being exposed to every day, your pee is a hugely valuable tool to diagnose a wide variety of health problems, everything from cancer to diabetes to arthritis and joint problems, the authors write. And you produce a ton of it: Most people enough over the course of their lives to fill an average five-foot-deep backyard swimming pool.
