There are many new and strnger chemicals, air and water pllutin, radiatin and nuclear pwer. Genetically Mdified fds threaten the planet and human health. We ingest new chemicals, use mre drugs f all kinds, eat mre sugar and refined fds, and daily abuse urselves with varius stimulants and sedatives. The incidence f many txicity diseases has increased as well. Cancer and heart/cardivascular disease are tw f the main nes. Arthritis, allergies, besity, and many skin prblems are thers. In additin, a wide range f symptms, such as headaches, fatigue, pains, cughs, gastrintestinal prblems, and prblems frm immune weakness, can all be related t txicity. Txicity ccurs n tw basic levels--external and internal. We can acquire txins frm ur envirnment by breathing them, by ingesting them, r thrugh physical cntact with them. Envirnmental Aspects f Nutritin, deals with chemical aspects f fd and hw they influence ur lives and health. We all are expsed t txins daily. We eat and drink them and impse them upn urselves repeatedly and regularly. Mst drugs, fd additives, and allergens can create txic elements in the bdy. On the internal level, ur bdies prduces txins thrugh their nrmal everyday functins. Bichemical, cellular, and bdily activities generate wastes that need t be eliminated. Free radicals cause bichemical txins. When these substances/mlecules/txins are nt eliminated, they can cause irritatin r inflammatin f the cells and tissues, blcking nrmal functins n a cellular, rgan, and whle-bdy level. Micrbes f all kinds intestinal bacteria, freign bacteria, yeasts, and parasites prduce metablic waste prducts that the bdy must eliminate. Our thughts and emtins and stress itself generate increased bichemical txicity and have a prfund impact n hw ur epigenetics elicits infrmatin frm ur genme. The prper level f eliminatin f these txins is essential t health. Clearly, a nrmal functining bdy was created t handle certain levels f txins; the cncern is with excess intake r prductin f txins r a reductin in the prcesses f eliminatin. A txin is basically any substance that creates irritating and/r harmful effects in the bdy, undermining ur health r stressing ur bichemical r rgan functins. This may result frm drugs, which have side effects, r frm patterns f physilgy that are different frm ur usual functining. Recreatinal drugs als usually have sme harmful effects. The free radicals irritate, inflame, age, and cause degeneratin f bdy tissues. Negative "ethers," psychic and spiritual influences, thught patterns, and negative emtins all can be txins as well bth as stressrs and by changing the nrmal physilgy f the bdy and pssibly prducing specific symptms. Txicity ccurs in ur bdy when we take in mre than we can utilize and eliminate. Hmestasis means that ur bdy functins are in balance. The checks and balances are wrking in harmny. This balance is disturbed when we feed urselves mre than we can utilize r partake f specific substances that are txic. Txicity may depend n the dsage, frequency, r ptency f the txin.

Of curse, if ur bdy is wrking well, with gd immune and eliminative functins, we can handle ur basic everyday expsure t txins IF we have adequate nutrient intake. Here we ll discuss ways t supprt the eliminatin f txins, excessive mucus, cngestin, and disease and t prevent, n a day-t-day basis, the buildup f txicity. Thrugh detxificatin, we clear and filter txins, wastes, and allw ur bdy t wrk n enhancing its basic functins. Our bdy handles txins either by neutralizing, transfrming, r eliminating them. As examples, many f the antixidant nutrients we have discussed s much may neutralize free-radical mlecules. The liver helps transfrm many txic substances int harmless agents, while the bld carries wastes t the kidneys; the liver als dumps wastes thrugh the bile int the intestines, where much waste is eliminated. We als clear txins thrugh sweating, frm exercise r heat. Our sinuses and skin may als be accessry eliminatin rgans whereby excess mucus r txins can be released, as with sinus cngestin r skin rashes, respectively. Detxificatin ccurs n many ther levels as well. Physically, this prcess can help clear cngestins, illnesses, and disease ptential. It can imprve energy. I believe that many "detx" prcesses can help rejuvenate us and prevent degeneratin. Mental detxificatin is als imprtant. Cleansing ur minds f negative thught patterns is essential t health; the physical detxificatin als helps this mental prcess. Emtinally, detxificatin helps us uncver and express feelings, especially hidden frustratins, anger, resentments, r fear, and replace them with frgiveness, lve, jy, and hpe. On a spiritual level, many peple experience new clarity and/r an enhancement f their purpse f life during cleansing prcesses. A light detx ver a cuple f days can help us feel better, while a lnger prcess and deeper cmmitment t a new way f life, such as eliminating certain abusive habits and eating a better diet, will help us really change ur whle life. Detxificatin is part f a transfrmatinal medicine that instills change n many levels. Change and evlutin are keys t healing. Enhancing eliminatin helps us deal with and clear prblems frm ur past, frm childhd and parental patterns t recent jb r relatinship stress. When ur bdy has eliminated much f its txic buildup, we feel lighter and are able t really experience the mment and be pen fr the future. Detxificatin is a relative term. Anything that supprts ur eliminatin can be said t help us detxify. Ding nthing mre than drinking an extra quart f water a day will usually help us eliminate mre txins. Eating mre fruits and vegetables--the high-water-cntent, cleansing fds- -and less meat and milk prducts will create less cngestin and mre eliminatin. There are many levels f the prgressive detxificatin diets, frm these simple changes t cmplete fasting. I want t express sme cncerns abut ver eliminatin r ver detxificatin, which I see ccasinally. Sme peple g t extremes with fasting, laxatives, enemas, clnics, diuretics, and even exercise and begin t lse essential nutrients frm their bdy. A negative balance can be created in this manner, such as prtein r vitamin-mineral deficiencies thugh cngestin frm ver intake and under eliminatin is a mre cmmn prblem in this culture. I believe that the best and simplest way t lk at symptms and disease is in terms f excess (cngestin) and deficiency; this is the basis f the traditinal Oriental philsphy.

Detxificatin is the prcess f clearing txins frm the bdy r neutralizing r transfrming them, and clearing excess mucus and cngestin. Many f these txins cme frm ur diet, drug use, and envirnmental expsure, bth acute and chrnic. Internally, fats, especially xidized fats and chlesterl, free radicals, and ther irritating mlecules act as txins. Functinally, pr digestin, cln sluggishness and dysfunctin, reduced liver functin, and pr eliminatin thrugh the kidneys, respiratry tract, and skin all add t increased txicity. Detxificatin invlves dietary and lifestyle changes that reduce intake f txins and imprve eliminatin. Avidance f chemicals, frm fd r ther surces, refined fd, sugar, caffeine, alchl, tbacc, and many drugs helps minimize the txin lad. Drinking extra water (purified) and increasing fiber by including mre fruits and vegetables in the diet are steps in the detxificatin prcess. Definitin: Detxificatin -- Detxificatin is the natural, innate bdy prcess whereby the cells alter and/r remve metablic wastes and txins. First and fremst, the wrd detxificatin is a natural health term in the public dmain and cmmn usage that refers t the bdy s innate prcess f remving txins and debris frm inside its cells, thrugh drainage systems, and ut f the bdy terrain. This way, the bdy can perfrm its life prcesses unencumbered by detrimental elements, mlecules, and cmpunds. It can als refer t the bdy s innate, cellular prcess f alchemically cnverting txins t useable substances a prcess that, fr thse wh wish t knw, can invlve methyl mlecules, electrn dnrs and acceptrs, and use f ATP (adensine triphsphate) the bdy s chemical energy f life. The bdy is The Great Recycler! It endeavrs t d the mst wrk with the least amunt f energy. WHERE ARE ALL THE TOXINS? Tw General Categries f Txins Endgenus preceding frm within. Mst ften refers t metablic wastes frm muscle mvement, adrenaline, histamine, antigenantibdy cmplexes, nutrient deficiencies, and psychlgical stress. Cmpunds include: CO2, Lactic Acid, Urea Calcium xalate, Ammnia, hrmnes and hrmne fragments. Exgenus prduced utside. Txins that we acquire by skin cntact, respiratin (lungs), ingestin (G.I. tract). Als includes excrement frm parasitic rganisms (virus, bacteria, fungus, mycbacterium, parasites.) All allpathic drugs create exgenus txins by 1) being pisnus, 2) by their impact n cntrlling metablism and tissue functin. Examples f exgenus txins include: Mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, tin, aluminum and ther heavy metals Tbacc

It is then the liver, kidneys, skin, mucus membranes and ther rgans jb t detxify these substances. These txins are cnstantly challenging cells, tissues, rgans, hrmnes, the immune system, and ther prtective bdily mechanisms. Self-healing mechanism f the bdy will either eliminate these txins r cntrl its bilgical effects that will result in a series f reactins (diseases). Value f Inflammatin. Txins burn in the fire f an inflammatin, r will be stred in the extra cellular matrix r cell itself and create CHRONIC DEGENERATIVE DISEASES. The quality f Life depends upn the purity f the extra cellular matrix. Detxificatin The beauty f prviding nutritin directly t the mitchndria f the individual cell is that when the bdy turns n all its energy-engines, detxificatin f the cells, as well as detxificatin f the extra-cellular matrix, ccurs naturally, directed by the bdy s innate intelligence, and all the bdy systems cperate in the detxificatin endeavr. This means that the detxifying prcess is gentle usually hardly nticed by the persn because the bdy uses all its natural facilities accrding t its innate prcesses. Thus deep detxificatin is simply business as usual and des nt have t be a debilitating, exhausting, painful prcess that ccurs when peple detxify withut first having gd cellular energy. Relying n the bdy s innate prcesses, reactivated by glycpeptides, is quite different than many f the detxificatin prtcls that are ppular in the Natural Health philsphies and practices where chemicals (DMSA, EDTA), r herbal chelatrs are intrduced t the bdy t frce detxificatin. Such frcing f the detxificatin prcess ften stresses the bdy s ability t remve the txins (a prcess called drainage), and thus a persn may feel tired and achy, and experience skin utbreaks, a runny nse, fever and diarrhea during the cleansing prcess. Plus there is the risk f Herxheimer reactins where the bdy has a serius reactin t the detxificatin bttleneck and just can t get the freed txins ut f the system. Glutathine the bdy s premier antixidant. This is sme infrmatin that delves back int cellular bichemistry, but its cnclusin is imprtant t understand. Frmulas such as MRS and EPIC help the cells and liver prduce glutathine a tripeptide assembled frm the amin acids cysteine, l-glutamic acid, glycine and a glutamate mlecule. Glutathine is a ptent antixidant that prtects the cells and liver frm reactive xygen species--free radical and perxide damage.) Withut glutathine, the cells die because they destry themselves, r establish errant cellular activity that results in death. Yur cells ability t prduce their wn glutathine is critically imprtant. Yu can think f glutathine as what the cells use t prtect themselves frm the cmbustin f life energy and damage f in exchange that all take place at the bdy s atmic level. Thus glutathine culd be likened t the lead rds that keep a

Further glutathine serves in the nucleus f yur cells t prtect yur RNA and DNA and help facilitate the necessary life prcesses. Its bilgical activity is that it can dnate a free prtn (prtn dnr) as well as dnate electrns, which, at the atmic level, is what makes glutathine serve the bdy as its perfect antixidant prtectr and facilitatr f it cellular machinery. By dnating electrns, glutathine stabilizes free radicals and prevents the cells frm being destryed r frm becming cancerus. Bth cirrhsis f the liver and cancers can result frm lw levels f glutathine. It als maintains Vitamin C and E in their active, antixidant frms. What this means is that cells make glutathine IF they have available nutrients (peptides) and if they have ATP. Glutathine then prtects the cells and causes them t functin prperly. S peptides plus ATP cmprise a significant facet f glutathine prductin and peratin inside the cell and cell nucleus. Peple with lw glutathine levels suffer frm mre rapid aging, cellular damage, liver damage, and their life prcesses get chked dwn with txins. Inevitably, lw prductin f ATP results in lw glutathine prductin. Lw glutathine prductin results in lw energy, txicity, and disease. IMPORTANCE OF GLUTATHIONE The bdy s primary antixidant t prtect the cells frm free radical damage that leads t diseases. The bdy s premier detxificatin agent t help eliminate metablic and envirnmental txins. Helps vitamins C and E functin. Directly detxifies dangerus chemical txins and carcingens. Helps with insulin receptr sensitivity (prevents insulin resistance). Essential fr the immune system t wrk prperly. Mdulates cytkine respnse and helps prliferate lymphcytes. Enhances the killing activity f cyttxic T and NK cells, and helps cntrl the immune respnse s it is nt aut- immune. Perfrms in DNA synthesis, repairs DNA, helps with prstaglandin synthesis, amin acid transprt and enzyme activatin. Every system in the bdy is affected by glutathine hepatic, renal, immune, nervus, respiratry, pulmnary, and gastr- intestinal. The bdy makes its wn glutathine, and it cannt be supplemented except t take precursr nutrients, because supplemental glutathine has very pr uptake thrugh the human gastr-intestinal tract. By the bdy s design, glutathine is prduced in the cells. T make a glutathine mlecule, the cell requires tw packets f ATP. S nw we knw that plysaccharides and xygen prvide the fuel fr the cells t make ATP. We als find that the glycpeptides prvide the amin acids that are part f the glutathine equatin End f excerpt. 58-page resurce article at
