It is common knowledge that many chronic health conditions are magnified when toxins bio-accumulate in the body. Some of these are carcinogens which allow cells to divide faster than their normal rate, thus causing all kinds of cancer, as well as neurological disorders and so forth.
I became aware that my liver was in a precancerous condition back in 2002 (along with other diagnoses), but in 60 days that was no longer the case. So remember anything is possible from here, no matter what your condition might be.
Here we have highlighted important facts for those who want to understand how toxins contribute to some of the chronic
health conditions experienced and then we share ideas to help remove some of this overload or burden from the cells of 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, experiencing a much better feeling body.
So read the information offered to help yourself become more aware, THEN immediately shift your focus to what you are wanting which is: to create a body that feels better, meaning more vibrant and alive. Detoxification is the first step. We personally have been through this process of cleansing, nourishing and rebuilding, so we know it is possible for others.
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 well.”
What is a toxin? Where do they come from?
A toxin is a poison that can impair cell function and bio-accumulate in the body. Toxins as in mercury (i.e. amalgam fillings), heavy metals, such as lead and arsenic, as well as pesticides, herbicides, chemicals etc. are carcinogenic (cancer causing) and can trigger neurological disorders as well. 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. For example:
Prescription and non-prescription medications (whether prescribed or over the counter) might have an adverse effect on the liver. At some point down the road if the liver isn’t functioning very well, we might take another medication to treat those
symptoms. For the most part, drugs do not cure disease or treat causes and sometimes 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.
Most meat comes from animals eating the above toxins in their grain and are given antibiotics as well
as growth hormones to speed up their growth (so they 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? I love coffee and tea and have chosen to use organic only. From my bits of reading there appears to be approximately 800 different chemicals used to process coffee. However if grown
organically, there are no chemicals, herbicides, pesticides or additives used in processing.
Tea - I like the antioxidant value in drinking green tea which I generally purchase organic from Mountain Rose Herbs. Tea can be therapeutic and beneficial when used medicinally; HOWEVER 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 the minerals back in (concentrace minerals), since living in the desert there isn't the rainfall to collect. Reverse Osmosis is another option for many, which is still much better than tap water. I am still considering 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 toxin overload while others sail through life and don't think twice about it. There are those who can eat everything including the kitchen sink and never have an upset stomach! Well that was not my story. I had lots of with unwanted physical symptoms and diagnoses that only got worse as I got older. It was abundantly clear that I needed some major detoxification........
My Personal Story>>
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 toxins
and carcinogens. However this does not mean we are powerless to their bio-accumulating in our bodies. I was once in a chronically ill state for 30 years and that is no longer my story. Once we are able to detoxify the overload from the cells of our body we can keep ourselves in a place where toxins have a difficult time taking up residence.
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, life is a lot more fun.

At this website, for those who are interested
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.
Remember that no 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 will help eliminate and cleanse many pathogens, parasites, and debris fairly quickly which helps the immune system perk up and take over its normal job of removing yeast, viruses and other unwanted toxins.
This may take a little time depending on your personal situation, however everything starts working right away which means you have pointed yourself into a better place. With specific products taken daily, toxins will be removed from the cells allowing the deeper embedded toxins to continuously migrate to the cell surface whereby they can be released consistently and carried out of the body via the elimination system.
Do What You Can As You Can
Here Are Some Effective Products -
Clay Effectively used for internal detoxification of mercury and heavy metals (i.e. lead, 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 re-mineralizing the body and bones moving calcium into the bone cell due to the unique combination of naturally occurring 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 cleaner digestive tract.

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.
ParaMax - Gentle and yet super effective for removing parasites and worms and their eggs in 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.
To eliminate parasites more completely from the body, one will want to repeat the Paramax after a 5 day break .
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 health expert 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…!
Consider substituting foods you have been eating with organic green foods. For some this might mean having to search for the produce section of the grocery store! Foods which can easily be switched to organic are eggs, yogurt, almond butter, bread, beans, rice milk, sprouts, avocados and other produce items. 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 either Concentrace Minerals or the pH booster which re-mineralizes water and ** boosts the pH to 9.5 - Which is 500 times greater than a pH of 7.0
pH Water Booster will treat 250 8oz servings of water.
Last of all, we are not going to avoid coming in contact with toxins and unwanted pathogens as long as we are alive. Personally I have moved away from the fear of everything and have decided that I can only do my best. I eat what feels best for me and do take some products daily for maintenance and to remove toxins that I take in simply from breathing and eating. Red Desert clay, Zetox, Neprinol, Syntol are the main ones I use and then I will drink the Iaso tea every so often.
Do what you can, as you can, listening to you intuition as to what action is optimum for you to take. You do not have to "be perfect" as that is setting the bar too high. Notice the moments when you are feeling better and say to yourself: YES, I want more of this!"
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
