The Very Visible Results of Unseen Health Hazards
How do you escape all the toxins in the air, in the water, on public buses and airplanes, in your car, the pesticides your neighbors use on their lawn, in home cleaning solutions, and in your shampoo, sunscreen, and toothpaste?
Do you have to move to a far away, cleaner country and live off the land? It's not that simple.
Even if you travel to the most desolate section of Antarctica or deep into the jungles of Peru, you'll still find cancer-causing chemicals in the water, soil and air. You’ll find toxins in the breast milk, bloodstreams, and urine samples of the inhabitants there, many of which cause cells to mutate and even develop into cancer.
Why don't we hear more about this?
Food producers, product manufacturers, government officials, pharmaceutical companies, medical physicians and others will admit that, while the chemicals present in products could be harmful in high doses, they're perfectly safe in the small amounts that a product contains.
And if we were exposed only once in our lives, that might be a meaningful statement.
The problem is we are exposed to these chemicals over and over again. Eventually, they build up in our systems.
While you aren't likely to get cancer from one injection at your pediatrician's office, one diet cola, one cigarette, one order of fast food, the new car smell, or one application of chemically-based skin lotion, these toxic materials cannot be effectively metabolized by your body. Therefore, these poisons accumulate in your system and create a "toxic burden."
This gradual buildup of toxins in your blood, cells, tissues or organs can go undetectable for years until symptoms start to become obvious. Over time, the burden becomes too great for the body to carry. So while they don't cause disease or death today, they certainly set the stage for diagnosis tomorrow.
The Basics of Detoxification
Step No. 1: Buy organic, grass-fed, cage-free and wild-caught when you can. This simple step may cost a few cents extra, but your body will appreciate the extra nutrients and lack of pesticides.
Step No. 2: Work out daily (or at least as often as possible). Sweat wicks toxins from your body. The more you sweat, the more you detoxify.
Step No. 3: Give your body the added nutrients it needs to target and eliminate toxins at the cellular level. Your Maximized Living doctor is a detoxification expert. If you're concerned about toxic build-up in your body, ask your doctor about additional resources that can help with lighten your toxic load.
