It is common knowledge that 80% to 90% of most chronic health conditions are triggered by toxins. Toxins are carcinogens which cause damage to our DNA, and brain function, cause cells to divide faster than their normal rate, thus causing all kinds of cancer, as well as neurological disorders and so forth.
We’ve highlighted important facts for those who want to understand how toxins create most chronic
health conditions and then we show how to successfully remove the toxic overload on the body. Although most of us have taken in a fair amount of toxins throughout our lives, many, many people are making new choices to clean their bodies from the inside out.
We hope you feel empowered, optimistic and that you have enough information to bring your body back into balance. The assistance needed to remove toxins and an acidic condition is offered here. We have been through this process of cleansing, nourishing and rebuilding, so we know it is possible for you.
Before we discuss how to remove pathogens from the body and how to limit our exposure, I’d like to briefly cover
where toxins come from, since most people are not able to grasp how this applies to them, how it
contributed to their chronic health issues or why they do not “feel good.”
What is a toxin? Where do they come from?
A toxin is poison to the body and breaks it down. Toxins as in heavy metals, (mercury i.e. amalgam fillings, lead, arsenic etc), pesticides, herbicides, chemicals etc. are carcinogenic (cancer causing) and can trigger neurological disorders. Here is a short list of SOME of the chronic health issues often triggered by toxins.
ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Gulf War Syndrome
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
Toxins bio-accumulate (increase in their concentration) over time.
These poisons come from ~
Prescription and non-prescription drugs (whether prescribed or over the counter) including aspirin, cold
remedies and pain relievers - A drug for lowering cholesterol for example, has an adverse effect on the
liver. Then when the liver isn’t functioning very well down the road, we take another drug to treat those
symptoms. For the most part, drugs to do not cure disease and do not treat causes. They are often taken off
the market once time has passed and the toxic effect can no longer be ignored.
Food - Produce is sprayed with chemical pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers and grown
with genetically engineered seeds…unless it is organic.
Pesticides and Herbicides are designed to kill living organisms.
We are living organisms.
From 1991 to 1999 pesticide use in the United States increased over 120%. The pesticide industry is very
politically influential with a goal of expanding their income. Unless one eats organic fruits and
vegetables, one is continuously exposed to pesticides and herbicides. The most common affect of
pesticide ingestion is cancer and the increased levels of toxicity in the brain and nervous system.
Meat comes from animals which are eating the above toxins in their grain and are given antibiotics as well
as growth hormones to speed up the animals growth (so it can be sold faster). We end up eating this meat
along with the hormones, chemicals and antibiotics from these unhealthy animals.
Nitrates and Nitrites are common ingredients in processed meats and they cause cancer, plain and simple
and should be avoided. They are found in fried bacon, sausage, hot dogs, cured lunchmeats, nonfat dry
milk and more.
For more info on nitrosamines...
Dairy products – Unless dairy products are organic, they contain growth hormones. Pasteurization heats
the milk to a very high heat to destroy any bacteria, yet it kills the live enzymes. Homogenization disrupts
the molecular structure of the milk, which is very difficult on our body organs.
Juice – Fruit juices are made from overly ripe fruit, high in mold and bacteria. Often this fruit cannot be sold
because it is too ripe, so it is made into juice. It is best to make your own fresh juice with a juicer.
There are 1000’s of chemicals, additives and preservatives put in foods which are packaged, processed,
micro-waved and frozen and these poisons are not required to be printed on the label.
What about coffee and tea? There are 800 different chemicals used to process coffee. However if grown
organically, there are no chemicals, herbicides, pesticides or additives used in processing. (I enjoy a little organic coffee, however I am aware that coffee leaches calcium from the bones, so I keep it to a minimum and supplement with our calcium and magnesium.) Tea can be
therapeutic and beneficial when used medicinally. Keep in mind tea bags do not have a long shelf life,
and can quickly become moldy.
Asparatame - Aspartame breaks down in the body and becomes formaldehyde. Carbonated sodas often contain phosphoric acid as well and and are high in sugar (corn syrup). Phosphoric acid along with
caffeine depletes calcium from the bones and teeth. AND cancer loves sugar.
When you purchase food, ask yourself how close is this to its natural form and is this produced as nature
intended? Remember the terms “Natural” and “all natural” do not equate to “organic.” Natural
and All Natural are marketing words.
3) Water – All tap water contains chlorine, fluoride and other chemicals. Distilled water will remove nearly all toxins, however you must add minerals back in. Rainwater is the best option as is melted snow. We have chosen to distill our water and add in the minerals, since living in the desert there isn't the rainfall to collect. We seldom use alkaline water machines, as they can cause the body to leach minerals when used over long periods of time. Reverse Osmosis is another option for many, which is still much better than tap water. I am still looking at a whole house water filter system.
4) Skin – Our skin is the largest organ of the body. Anything we put on our skin is absorbed into the
bloodstream i.e. lotions, sunscreen, make-up, shaving cream, shampoo etc.
5) Mercury - amalgam filings leak vapors in our mouth 24 hours a day. The Red Desert™ clay and the natural liquid zeolite (described below) will specifically target mercury removal.
6) Arsenic – Wood/lumber used for outdoor projects, decks, picnic benches etc. leach arsenic, which is
For more info on arsenic
7) Fumes we breathe in from exhaust, fabric softeners, to cleaning supplies and air freshners contribute to the toxic
overload. Check the products in your home and environment which have a scented fragrance; you may
discover these are produced from chemicals.
Fast food, processed, micro-waved, frozen, irradiated food hangs around at the bottom of our food chain.
There are many other sources of toxins as in mold, pollens and dust.
We CAN eliminate most toxins ~
WE CAN ELIMINATE MOST TOXINS FROM OUR BODY
AND LIMIT OUR EXPOSURE
Some of us experience the effects of toxic poisoning sooner than others; but it is abundantly clear that
most illness and disease in people and pets is triggered by toxins in the food, air, water and the
One hundred years ago, cancer, Alzheimer’s and dementia existed in 1% - 2% of the population. We did
not have junk food, genetically engineered food, processed, microwaved or fast food. Pesticides,
herbicides, chemical plants, plastics, polluted air and water hardly existed either.
Since we are all choosing to breathe, eat and drink, we are exposed to a significant array of neurotoxins
Chronic disease does not exist in strong, healthy bodies. As a child I was given antibiotics for 7 years straight. I had no idea for the next 35 years why I was so exhausted. As an adult, diagnosed with “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,” which is a label given for many symptoms, I pushed myself through life.
Eventually I connected with a brilliant holistic MD who looked at my blood under a microscope. This revealed the massive systemic candida infection as well as pre-cancer of the liver (caused by the overuse of antibiotics).
Unsure if I would ever feel good again, I
began the process of detoxifying my body and then rebuilding my health. This took a fair amount of
work and time and now after walking the walk and with a stronger, healthier body, I am teaching others
how to turn their health issues around.
People do not usually connect their body’s lack of health to its source – toxins, because toxins usually
build up in the body over a long period of time. We often do not notice their impact until we have a
serious health crisis. Rarely does our body suddenly become “sick.”
At this website
you will find a summary of toxins and pollutants from the ingredients in sodas, to arsenic in treated wood and which chemicals cause what illnesses.
Not one product is going to remove every toxin from the body. However, with consistency over time, adding a couple of items to your regime on a daily basis, you cannot help but eliminate and cleanse the majority of poisons, parasites, and toxins fairly quickly.
The key is consistency. As you are daily detoxifying, the deeply inbedded toxins will continue to migrate to the service of the cell and be released carried out by the products you use through the elimination system.
Here Are Some Effective Products -
Clay Effectively used for internal detoxification of heavy metals (i.e. lead, mercury, arsenic, aluminum, depleted uranium etc.) unfriendly bacteria, chemicals, herbicides, pesticides and other pathogens from the body.
As toxins are removed, this clay will leave behind minerals to nourish the cells and for building bone density. Used by NASA in their manned space program for remineralizing the body and bones moving calcium into the bone cell due to the unique combination of naturally occuring minerals (high in silica).
An excellent, high quality edible clay as featured on Animal Planet.
Red Desert® clay is also used as a daily detoxifier for removing toxins taken in from daily living and is great for maintaining a clean digestive tract.

B-Tox / ZETOX Zeolite -
Nearly 50x more zeolite per mg than our previous natural liquid zeolite and for a much better price. This product moves quickly into the bloodstream removing many chemicals, poisons, heavy metals, pesticides, plastics, PCB's and more.
If you have quite a bit of toxicity going on in the body, you will want to do all you can when working to remove toxins from a variety of sources.
Middle East - IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE MIDDLE EAST, it is very likely you have taken in depleted uranium, which bio-accumulates in all the tissues of the body, creating serious health issues.
This zeolite mineral is 5 microns is size allowing it to move into the bloodstream. The process pulls the toxins into the cagelike structure of the zeolites, which are then trapped and eliminated through the urine within 5 to 6 hours of each dose. Can be used in combination with the Red Desert® clay.
Iaso Tea - Gentle and yet super effective for removing parasites and worms throughout the entire body. The Iaso tea will go into the blood, brain, lungs, liver and digestive system as well as the colon. Helpful for gastro-intestinal symptoms, improving digestion, as well as reducing the toxic load on the lungs, kidneys, liver, gall bladder etc.
A one month supply is suggested, to allow the eggs that may take a few weeks to hatch.
Free Sample - The Iaso tea is shipped directly from the manufacturer. You can receive a one week supply for FREE (makes a gallon of tea), if you pay the $4.95 shipping or you can just purchase a month supply as a customer.

We understand the information provided can sometimes appear overwhelming. It was for us, when we got started years ago. Do what you can as you can. It may be easiest for you to start with one product and then make a new decision in a week or two to add in another product that resonates with you. Some people need to start with tiny, tiny dosages since detoxification starts immediately. Always speak with your doctor before starting a detoxification regime.
The Red Desert Clay is very helpful for more than detoxification and a no brainer for every day use - very cost effective.
The Liquid zeolite will also get into the bloodstream quickly and immediately begin to remove a variety of toxins and chemicals.
Begin to replace household cleaning supplies with non-toxic ones from health food stores. Vodka - according to Kirstie Alley, this is the best bathroom cleaning product..!
Organic hair supplies, shaving cream even laundry soaps can be purchased at health food stores. You will
want to be sure to use products which do not contain propylene glycol. Propylene glycol is in cosmetics,
deodorant, lipsticks, suntan lotion and many other products INCLUDING ANTI-FREEZE.
Deodorant - We are now offering a deodorant stone, to replace thoses containing toxins i.e. aluminum. Our
bodies need to perspire. Our deodorant stone will not stop perspiration; however, it is made with
potassium mineral salts and does a great job at eliminating odor. Living in the Arizona desert for years at
temperatures of 108 degrees, we need this kind of help…!
Start substituting foods you have been eating with organic green foods. Yep, that means the produce
section. Be sure the produce is fresh and NOT breaking down. Start with a few changes at a time adding
more each week. Foods which can easily be switched to organic are eggs, yogurt, almond butter, bread
(Ezekiel or Alvarado Street are good brands), beans, and produce. Broccoli sprouts are very high in the
cancer fighting enzymes – about 100 times more than broccoli itself.
Remember the terms “Natural” and “all natural” do not equate to “organic.” Natural and All
Natural are marketing words.
Our articles on
contain beneficial information to further assist the
body in detoxifying and increasing vitamin and mineral absorption directly to the cells.
Drink good filtered water and lots of it. We distill our water and then add the pH booster which re-mineralizes and boosts the pH to 9.5 as well.
** Boosts water to pH 9.5 - Which is 500 times greater than a pH of 7.0
pH Water Booster will treat 250 8oz servings of water.
There are plenty of toxic chemicals in food and just about everything we touch, and if we ingest a little each day, every week, every year, we can
better understand how these chemicals accumulate and cause degenerative and chronic disease. HOWEVER, there are a few products that can be taken in maintenance dosages each day to keep the body clear AND in a well state of being.
May this article assist you in manifesting the health you desire. Work at your own pace. Do what you
can, as you can. As your body feels Lighter…share this Light with someone else. Soon we will have

Mercury in Vaccines – Autism, Neurological Disorders
Oct 1, 2003 Congressman Dan Burton
- "Madam speaker, as we approach the flu season, many of my
colleagues will visit the doctor's office here on Capitol Hill and receive a flu shot. Before they go, I think
all of my colleagues ought to know that the flu shot contains mercury, which is a substance that's toxic
to the human brain. Now, that's not to say that you shouldn't get your flu shot if you want to, but there are
a lot of neurological disorders that have been caused by mercury and I think everybody ought to know
that there is mercury in that vaccine. Now, that's not the only vaccine that contains thimerosal. From
anthrax to hepatitis to dtap, which is given to infants to protect them, numerous vaccines exist that contain
mercury, a harmful preservative. Parents around this country I am sure would be very upset if they knew
that. Scientific evidence continues to accumulate regarding the biologically plausible connection
between mercury and thimerosal, autism and other neurological, developmental disorders. We have
one in 10,000 children 10 years ago that were autistic. Now it's one in 150 and scientists before my
committee say it's because in large part of the mercury in the vaccines". Congressman Dan Burton
DEADLY IMMUNITY - written by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Thursday 16 June 2005 - When a study revealed that mercury in childhood vaccines may have caused
autism in thousands of kids, the government rushed to conceal the data - and to prevent parents from
suing drug companies for their role in the epidemic. The entire article…click the blue link above.
Autism – There has been an increase in dramatic increase in autism in the past 20 years and much talk
about the impact vaccinations have contributed. Thimerosal is a mercury-based preservative in vaccines.
AUTISM The figure of one autistic infant for every 150 is now widely documented.
By age two, American children have received 237 micrograms of mercury through vaccines alone, which
far exceeds current EPA "safe" levels of .1 mcg/kg. per day. That's one-tenth of a microgram, not one
Three days in particular may be singled out as spectacularly toxic for infants:
Day of birth: Hepatitis B-12 mcg mercury - 30 x safe level
At 4 months: DTaP and HiB on same day - 50 mcg mercury 60 x safe level
At 6 months: Hep B, Polio - 62.5 mcg mercury - 78 x safe level
At 15 months: the child receives another 50 mcg - 41 x safe level
