ROOT CAUSE 1: TOXICITY 

Shawn M. Persaud ( 10 |  01 | 2016 )

The liver, kidneys, and other eliminatory organs, can become overburdened.

 

Excess exposure to toxicity can come from:

  • tap water

  • drugs

  • metal dental fillings

  • food additives

  • conventionally farmed produce & meats

  • pesticides

  • pollution

  • cosmetics, toiletries and cleaning products and,

  • radiation (electromagnetic fields - EMFs) emitted from medical diagnostic equipment, hydro lines, household appliances, wi-fi, cell phones, and other electronic devices.

These overburdened organs become less effective at breaking down and excreting toxins, causing an accumulation in the body’s tissues.

 

Excess toxicity is at the root of many chronic conditions, including:

  • Allergies, Cancer, & Autoimmune disorders 

  • Learning Disorders & Cognitive Impairment 

  • Anxiety & Depression 

  • Digestive & Hormone Disorders 

  • Weight Gain & Chronic Fatigue

  • Skin Disorders & Reproductive Issues

  • Inflammatory Conditions (diseases ending with “itis,” such as arthritis)

Lymphatic System
Transports toxic substances from cells to the filters within the liver and the kidneys. Symptoms of a clogged lymphatic system include puffiness under the skin, swollen lymph nodes, and unexplained aches and pains.

Liver
Transforms toxic substances in a form that the body can excrete. Symptoms of a clogged liver  include bad breath, constipation, sore breasts, chronic fatigue, and digestive issues (poor tolerance to alcohol, hard time digesting fats, etc). 

Kidneys
Filters the blood and the urine, through which toxins are excreted. Clogged kidneys can result in dark circles under the eyes, lower back pain, water retention, painful/frequent urination, and frequent cystitis.

Bowels
Excretes toxins through bowel movements. Clogged bowels can result in constipation or diarrhea, leaky gut syndrome (where toxins “leak” back into the bloodstream), food allergies, and poor immune system function.

Lungs
Eliminates toxins through respiration. A clogged respiratory system can result in asthma, bronchitis, chronic cough, and sinusitis.

Skin
The skin excretes toxins through sweat and through hair follicles. Symptoms of impaired detoxification through the skin includes hair loss, rosacea, eczema, rashes, acne and excessive sweating.

20 STEPS TO A HEALTHY HOME
 

  1. Choose cleaners, body products, and supplements with the fewest ingredients possible. (As a rule of thumb: If it’s not safe to eat - then don’t use it in your home or on your body.)

  2. Choose organic produce, free-range and organic meats to reduce exposure to added hormones, antibiotics, and pesticides.

  3. Avoid farm-raised fish, which are often contaminated with PCBs and mercury, choose high quality supplements, eat smaller fish, or fish that is wild-caught and lab tested for purity. Wild caught Alaskan Sockeye Salmon is one of the safer options.

  4. Buy products packaged in glass rather than plastic or cans to avoid chemicals from leaching out of these materials into the contents.

  5. Store your food and beverages in glass rather than plastic, and avoid using plastic wrap and aluminum foil.

  6. Avoid processed and prepackaged foods as they are a common source of chemicals such as BPA, phthalates, and preservatives.

  7. Replace your non-stick pots and pans with ceramic or glass cookware.

  8. Filter your tap water — both for drinking and bathing to avoid chlorine, fluoride, toxic metals, pesticide and pharmaceutical residues, and other harmful chemicals.

  9. Look for products that are made by companies that are earth-friendly, animal-friendly, green, non-toxic, and/or 100% organic. This applies to everything from food and personal care products to building materials, carpeting, paint, baby items, upholstery, and more.

  10. Use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter to remove house dust, which is often contaminated with traces of chemicals.

  11. Avoid buying furniture, mattresses, or carpet padding containing PBDEs, antimony, formaldehyde, boric acid, and other brominated chemicals. As you replace these toxic items around your home, select those that naturally contain less flammable materials, such as leather, wool and cotton.

  12. Avoid stain- and water-resistant clothing, furniture, and carpets to avoid perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs).

  13. Use glass baby bottles and avoid plastic sippy cups. Minimize your use of plastic baby and child toys, opting for those made of natural wood or fabric instead.

  14. Only use natural cleaning products in your home or make your own. Avoid products that contain 2-butoxyethanol (EGBE) and methoxydiglycol (DEGME) — two toxic glycol ethers that can damage fertility and cause fetal harm.

  15. Choose organic, non-toxic brands of toiletries such as shampoo, toothpaste, antiperspirants, and cosmetics.

  16. Replace feminine hygiene products like tampons and sanitary pads with safer alternatives.

  17. Avoid artificial air fresheners, dryer sheets, fabric softeners, or other synthetic fragrances.

  18. Look for products that are fragrance-free. One artificial fragrance can contain thousands of toxic chemicals.

  19. Limit cell phone usage to under 10 minutes per day, use hands free mode when possible, and keep it stored away from the body when not in use. Keep laptop on a table, not your lap, and reduce prolonged exposure. Also avoid being in proximity to a wireless internet box, a breaker system, household appliances and other major electronic sources. Consider radiation/EMF neutralizing technologies for cell phones/electronics (available at our clinic).  

  20. Avoid medical diagnostic scans when possible by only opting for it when absolutely necessary. Many medical establishments around the world are changing recommendations for various types of routine scans, such as mammograms, and replacing them with non-invasive alternatives due to concerns of the harmful effects of these high levels of radiation exposure. Always consult with your doctor regarding your options.
