Redesigning Our Approach to Cleansing Eliminating Functions
THE GOAL: To give you the tools to design the programs you personally need
OUR BODIES PERFORM 2 MAIN FUNCTIONS:
CLEANSING/DRAINING: dislodging, breaking down, and moving toxic materials through the body and out through the eliminative channels (CATABOLIC FUNCTIONS)
BUILDING/ENERGIZING/HEALING: This involves the constant repair and upkeep of our bodies. (ANABOLIC FUNCTIONS)
Why We Need to Detoxify Regularly
Carcinogenic Chemicals in our Water
Carcinogenic Occupational Toxins
Dietary Sources of Pollutants
Personal Care Product Chemicals
Harmful Xenoestrogen Sources
The Chemical Load Begins Before Birth ” …up to 232 toxic chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of 10 babies…The findings constitute hard evidence that each child was exposed to a host of dangerous substances while still in its mother’s womb.”
STARTLING TOXIC STATISTICS
More than 7 million accidental poisonings occur each year, with more than 75% involving children under age 6! —The Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons
According to the U.S. Poison Control Centers, “A child is accidentally poisoned every 30 seconds at home…”
In 2007, 4.1 billion pounds of approx. 650 chemicals were produced by industry and federal facilities.
Toxic chemicals released by industries this year 2014 to date:
Toxic chemical release – Each and every second 310 Kg of toxic chemicals are released into our air, land, and water by industrial facilities around the world.
This amounts to approximately 10 million tons (over 21 billion pounds) of toxic chemicals released into our environment by industries each year.
Of these, over 2 million tons (over 4.5 billion pounds) per year are recognized carcinogens. This amounts to about 65 Kg each second.
Toxic Inventory Release Database **We have approximately 75,000 chemicals produced to date. We are plagued by cancers of our eliminative channels with lung cancer in the lead followed by colon cancer.
Lung cancer: 226,160 new cases yearly, Colon cancer: 103,170 new cases yearly, Urinary cancer: 141,140 new cases yearly, Skin cancer: 81,240 new cases yearly.

“Chemical compounds ubiquitous in our food, air and water are now found in every person. The bioaccumulation of these compounds in some individuals can lead to a variety of metabolic and system dysfunctions… The primary classes of the most common toxic offenders are solvents, pesticides, and heavy metals. Of heavy metals, mercury is the one most individuals are burdened by. The systems most affected…include the immune, neurological and endocrine system.”
** Walter J. Crinnion ND. Alternative Medicine Review, Vol 5, 2000.
According to the website search.epa.gov, 80% of people’s exposure to chemicals occurs in the HOME. EPA (5 year study)– many homes had chemical levels 70 times higher than that of outside air. Common household cleaners are 3 times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air pollution.
Harmful Estrogens Are Found Everywhere
Foreign or xenoestrogens are found in:
The plastic or styrofoam cup holding your morning coffee
The PVC piping used in your homes and lawns
Detergents, cleaners, pesticides, lawn fertilizers, meat, unfiltered water, cosmetics
Microwaving foods in plastic can enhance the transfer of the plastics or phthalates into our bodies
Universal Chemicals found in Human Fat (EPA stats,1982)
Styrene from Styrofoam cups
Dichlorobenzenes from moth balls/deodorants
Xylene from gasoline
Ethylphenol from drinking water
OCDD from wood and treatment chemicals The first 4 are solvents. The 5th is a dioxin. The word, “universal” means that the average person has all of these in their body.
What about Children and Toxic Exposure?
The book, ‘Textbook of Children’s Environmental Health’ written by Landrigan Philip, published this year 2014, states how ‘in studying a cohort of inner city children in New York City, my colleagues and I are finding that many of the children were exposed prenatally to various air pollutants, pesticides, endocrine-disrupting chemicals, and metals. By age 7 years, 25% of the children were overweight or obese, more than 25% had a diagnosis of asthma, and 15% had experienced delayed cognitive or motor development that could affect their ability to learn. One boy in the study is affected by asthma and developmental problems. Biomarkers in his cord blood showed measurable exposure to a number of toxic chemicals.’
And What About Sex Toys And Sexual Lubricants?
According to,’When Sex Goes Toxic’, ‘most sexual intimate toys and sexual lubricants are chock full of toxic ingredients like parabens, sodium benzoate, glycerin, petrochemicals and even propylene glycol—a common ingredient in brake fluid! Recent studies have also shown that many such products — especially personal lubes — can seriously damage the cell lining, potentially enhancing our susceptibility to sexually-transmitted bags o’ fun like gonorrhea, Chlamydia, syphilis, genital herpes, hepatitis B and, of course, HIV.’
‘According to market research firm Iri, Americans plunk down roughly $200 million annually on lube alone, a substance that sort of faces Food and Drug Administration scrutiny but not necessarily in the ways you might expect. That’s because the FDA classifies lube as something “to lubricate a body orifice to facilitate entry of a diagnostic or therapeutic device.” (And if that doesn’t get you all hot and bothered nothing will.)’
‘The problem with classifying lubricants this way, as a de facto medical device, is twofold. First, thanks to the glorious idiosyncrasies of language, such products only face FDA scrutiny if they explicitly portend to be “vaginal lubricants.” Such a stipulation imposes a stipulation that the manufacturer must submit a host of applications (called “510k clearances”) to the FDA. But it doesn’t necessarily mean it has to prove the product is safe for repeat contact.’
‘Second, companies that don’t explicitly state their products are intended for vaginal lubrication — even if everybody knows they are — face barely any regulation at all. So, unless people’s junk starts spontaneously bursting into flames after rubbing on some Liquid Sexy Heat, most manufacturers just keep on peddling.’
‘From a toxicity perspective, we know that many intimate-use products currently on the market (most of which come from China, by way of Unregulatedville) contain a host of parabens. Parabens are known endocrine disruptors, and endocrine disruptors have, for some time, been linked to birth defects, reduced sperm count, tumors, immune deficiencies and a seemingly endless list of nasty business, like the “feminization of boys.”’
‘Furthermore, while the U.S. lags behind regulating the toxins we come in contact with, the entire European Union is seeking to ban parabens in any product meant for children under 6 years old. Officials at the World Health Organization, meanwhile, have stated outright that endocrine disruptors can potentially lead to “obesity, infertility or reduced fertility, learning and memory difficulties, Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as a variety of other diseases.”’
‘“We don’t have categorical proof that the toxic substances found in (these products) will kill you,” admits Dr. Peter Anton, who recently co-authored an in-depth study on lubricant use. “But if you could easily avoid them why wouldn’t you?”‘
The Benefits of Detoxification?
Opening the door to promoting healing and rejuvenation and greater longevity.
May promote slowing degeneration and aging.
It provides an internal shower and tune-up.
To be a personal tool for elimination of toxic waste accumulations, environmental toxins, acids, opportunistic organisms, mucus, excess fat, fluid buildup.

Prepare Your Mind to Meet Your Goals
We must have 100% commitment to truly get well. We may have to do some things we enjoy less than others. But what if we could change our thought processes and enjoy it all? That would be huge!! For every belief, there is a result. The faster we change our thinking, the faster the shift that brings the desired result.
Goals of Colon Cleansing
To reduce transit time (the time it takes for food to exit the body).
Transit time can range from 10 to 100 hours.
This reduces harmful chemical generation of bowel toxins.
To improve absorption of water soluble vitamins (B,C).
To maintain already normal range cholesterol levels.
To reduce the amount of pathogenic organisms.
To increase the natural healthy colon flora A clean environment may reduce toxins reabsorbing into body tissues.
13 Lifestyle Changes to a Healthy Colon
Breakfast like a king, Lunch like a queen, Dinner like a pauper. This decreases digestive burden at night.
Chew your food well.
Eat a high fiber diet.
Eat only until satisfied
Eat in a relaxed atmosphere
Drink no more than 6 oz of fluid at a meal.
Avoid milk, juice, and coffee with meals
Make half of your plate fresh, raw, or lightly steamed veggies.
Drink fresh pure water: 8 cups/daily.
Eat pickled vegetables and fermented foods like sauerkraut.
Eat fruit alone.
Release hatred, anger, rage, fear, stress, anxiety, worry verbally, and verbally replace with the opposite weekly.
“Kidneys are the body’s last-route filtering system. If the kidneys don’t work correctly, toxins build up.” — articlesbase.com/diseases-and-conditions-articles/what-is-kidney-disease.
IN CHINESE MEDICINE, the respiratory system governs the mucus balance of the body as well as the voice volume and flow of Chi energy. It belongs to the Metal Element, which includes of principle of immunity and protection to the body.
Elasticity, moisture regulation, and pigment control are only a few of the functions occurring within the skin. This marvelous organ functions as a protective barrier to disease-causing organisms. The skin often is a mirror of inner toxicity. It is an eliminative organ. Overload here may signal congestive lymph, colon, kidneys, and liver.
Keeping cells clean has many benefits: Healthy aging. Better mental and physical well-being. An overall reduction of health challenges.
