Our Toxic World

I don’t have to tell you the world’s a more polluted place than ever before. You can see it, feel it, and smell it just about anywhere. Every year over 5 billion pounds of chemical pollutants are released into the environment we eat, breathe and live in. Most cities are filled with toxic chemicals from–exhaust fumes, dioxins, heavy metals, industrial solvents, volatile substances and other chemical compounds that percolate in the surrounding air, soil, and water.

Plus, today much of the food supply contains dyes, preservatives, pesticide residues, nitrates, hydrogenated oils, artificial food ingredients and other agents known to have carcinogenic potential. The result is not only a more polluted planet but also more polluted bodies.

And it’s practically impossible today to get away from all of them.

Do a Healthy Cleanse and Detox to fight off toxins in your food.

Our Toxic Lifestyle

In this fast-paced world, it’s also easy to develop an unhealthy lifestyle. Buying fast-food to save time. Not getting the amount of sleep our body needs. Sitting in an office or in front of the TV and not making the time for physical exercise.

Trying to adapt to this modern world also creates a lot of stress. And to relieve stress we often turn to food for comfort without realizing the consequences. Many of us are guilty of being addicted to foods that are too tasty, too oily, or too sweet even though we know they are not good for health.

Even the most dedicated among us who eat only organic, unprocessed foods and abstain from unhealthy lifestyles cannot entirely avoid environmental toxins. This toxic onslaught is a burden on everybody, but particularly on those individuals with a liver, gallbladder, pancreatic or bowel disease, because these organs clear toxins from the blood.

People with poor diets face doubling the risk because they typically consume an increased amount of toxic substances and an insufficient amount of nutrients for liver and tissue detoxification.

How the Body Naturally Cleanses Itself

Fortunately, there are ways to counteract some toxins and pollutants. Your body’s natural detoxification processes exist to deal with the ones we can’t avoid. First, let’s understand the natural ability we have to cleanse ourselves.

Our excretory systems play the largest role in our bodies ability detoxify because they remove waste products from the body.

Main organs that compose the excretory system and their cleansing functions:

  • Skin – helps in elimination of toxins through the sweat glands. The purpose of sweat is to regulate temperature, but it’s a multifunctional system. When sweat passes through the sweat glands, it takes the toxins with it.
  • Lungs – help remove the waste gas we acquire from breathing called carbon dioxide.
  • Kidneys – filter the blood and help flush waste from the body through urination.
  • Liver –  filter an excrete wastes, drugs, and other foreign substances.Large intestines
  • Large intestines – absorb water and remaining nutrients from food. It also converts waste into stool to be expelled from the body through defecation.
  • Brain –  flushes toxic molecules while you sleep.

Our body is detoxifying itself all the time, around the clock 24/7.  However, in the modern world causes our body systems to work on overdrive.

Which means our liver, colon, blood, kidneys, lungs and skin and other all have to work that much harder to remove all the toxins, we eat, drink, and breathe out of our bodies. And do it all while often being fed an unhealthy diet, and operating in a stressed-out, overworked body that doesn’t get enough rest!

So it’s no surprise that often our bodies become overwhelmed by the workload. And the toxins build up leaving us constipated, bloated, feeling sluggish and a host of other unpleasant symptoms.

Over time, the buildup of toxins in the body can lead to serious health problems. Frequent headaches, PMS, joint pain, fatigue, skin eruptions, digestive symptoms, halitosis (bad breath), recurrent infections and immune deficiency all may indicate a need for detoxification.

You can help your body perform these processes and relieve overtaxed body systems by periodically completing a healthy cleanse and detox.

5 Other Ways to Support Your Health Cleanse:

1) Watch your diet.

Detoxifying your body is not only about what you avoid, but also about what you eat. You can go a long way by following a healthy diet. Some foods that aid detoxification are:

  • Garlic – Although garlic does not directly flush the toxins out of the body, it does contribute to detoxification as it helps increase the production of glutathione, which is an agent that filters toxins that are coming from the digestive system and helps as well in the detoxification and purification of the liver.
  • Lemon – Drinking lemon has lots of benefits which is why it is not a surprise that lemon with warm or room temperature water is one of the most popular ways to detoxify. Not only does it help in losing weight, but it also helps in the body’s proper digestion which leads to eliminating symptoms such as heartburn. Drinking lemon water also helps in lowering the cholesterol and sugar level in the body and it also curbs the appetite by having the body feel full and satisfied. Lemon also helps in the cleansing of the body and the cleansing of the liver.
  • Broccoli sprouts
    – A study published online in the journal Cancer Prevention Research suggests that broccoli sprouts may help detox toxic pollutants. Broccoli sprouts contain a compound called glucoraphanin that can help protect you from air-pollution hazards.
    Glucoraphanin works to elevate enzyme levels in the liver and other tissues that increase the detoxification rate for environmental pollutants that we inhale or ingest. This leads to faster excretion of these toxins, reducing the likelihood that they will cause harm.
  • Mung beans
    – The proteins, tannins, and flavonoids in mung beans are also considered effective for binding to and clearing pesticides and heavy metals like mercury and lead from the body.


2) Drink plenty of water

Your body’s most basic functions require water. The body needs water to produce saliva, help perspiration and remove waste. The more fresh, pure water you put into your body, the more toxins can be dissolved and cleared away. Remember, water is the solvent of solvents. Nothing is more cleansing, purifying, healing, than fresh clean water.

And rather than using bottled water which contains its own source of toxins, we recommend the Get Clean Pitcher. It’s a revolutionary new water pitcher filtration system certified by the Water Quality Association (WQA) to reduce up to 99% of lead — and dozens of other nasty contaminants that can turn up in your water and may be harmful to your health.

3) Purify the air you breathe

Another way to reduce your exposure to toxins is by breathing clean air. While you can’t control the whole environment, you can control the air in your home. Pet dander, mold, smoke, fumes, mildew, and microorganisms can make the air in your home more toxic than the air outside. Invest in a high-quality air purification device to keep your air fresh and toxin-free. However, if this is out of your budget, get a few houseplants instead; they’re nature’s air fresheners and they help filter the air and remove toxins.

4) Opt for the right foods

Lightening its load and decreasing the toxins you put in your body is one of the best things you can do to support your body’s detoxification process. Choose organic vegetables and fruits over fast food and other processed foods.GMO products and pesticide-contaminated foods add harmful toxins to your diet. Avoid them like a plague.

5) Exercise and Meditation

Exercising helps you sweat, and sweating helps release toxin through your skin. Studies have traced amounts of cadmium, mercury, arsenic, and lead in sweat. Meditation helps you clear your mind and reduce stress. Stress can be as toxic to your health as chemicals. A troubled mind can cause the physical body to function poorly.

Dr. George C. Crile, head of the Crile Clinic in Cleveland and one of the world’s greatest surgeons, said,
“There is no natural death. All deaths that come from so-called natural causes are merely the endpoint of progressive acid saturation. Many people go so far as to consider that sickness and disease are just a ‘cross’ or an element which God gave them to bear here on this earth. However, if they would take care of their body and cleanse their colon and intestines, their problems would be pretty much eliminated and they could eliminate their ‘cross’ by proper diet, proper exercise, and in general, proper living.”

Healthy Cleanse and Weight Loss

Final Thought.

Sir William A. Lane, a world authority on medical matters, stated:

“If we are to have optimum health and long life we must control our consumption, assimilation, and elimination. It is possible, to a greater or lesser degree, to control all three. Of course, this will involve some work, inconvenience, and expense. We only have one life, there is no spare for that! It all boils down to one question: ‘What is good health and long life worth?‘ Someone said: ‘One in a thousand care to take the trouble, the others let the trouble take them.’ How true!”

Don’t let trouble from a poor diet, busy lifestyle, and toxic buildup take you by surprise. Order the 7-Day Healthy Cleanse today and experience a whole new you and a whole new level of health in one week — guaranteed!
