Overload - Health Challenges from our Environment Plus Toxic Tips
back 20, 30, 40, even 50 years ago. If you are too young, ask someone.
What were the major health challenges back then? How often did you
hear about cancer, diabetes, asthma, autism, arthritis, Alzheimer's
disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, ADD/ADHD, insomnia, and
more? Things have definitely changed over the years.
body is an amazing machine. It is designed to process toxins that
enter the body through the air, food and drink you ingest, and through
your skin. Your kidneys, liver, lungs, lymphatic system, blood, bowel
and skin all have roles in transporting and eliminating toxins.
there are more toxins in the environment than ever before and it
creates a toxic load on our systems. It's not surprising there are so
many health problems when 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals are
produced annually and over 20,000 new chemicals are created each year.
Human fat tissue sampled in the United
has shown 700 chemical contaminants that have not been chemically
Of 287 chemicals detected in an umbilical cord blood, 180 cause
cancers in humans or animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous
system and 208 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal
Toxins and Radiation Get Into and Impact Our Bodies
air pollution contains substances which are known or suspected to cause
cancer, genetic mutation, birth defects and other serious illnesses in
people even at relatively low exposure levels. Millions of pounds of
these chemicals are emitted into the air every year by motor vehicles,
from various industries and from power plants.[iii]
"Red air" alerts warn people to stay inside, but indoor air isn't
to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, air within a home can be
more polluted than outdoor air in the largest cities. Consider all the
cleaning products, aerosols, paint, carpet, molds, mildew, building
materials, air conditioning/heating, fireplaces, cooking fumes,
perfumes/cosmetics, radon, and asbestos found in and around the home.
Homes are sealed tightly for energy efficiency, so pollutants become
trapped. Since 1980, the number of people diagnosed with asthma has
more than doubled. Air filtration is necessary, but some air
filtration systems create ozone which is damaging to the lungs.
in your water? You probably don't want to know - pharmaceuticals,
pesticides, fertilizers, human and animal waste, bacteria, rocket fuel,
and more. Bottled water is not the answer, especially for our
fertilizers, and more are found in our foods. In addition, many foods
are highly processed and genetically modified with chemicals and
preservatives. When food is cooked, it is oxidized, which creates free
clean house is a healthy house, right? Not necessarily. Many cleaners
are highly toxic and are absorbed through the air and skin.
the skin care industry is not regulated and often we are putting
dangerous chemicals on our skin. Further, what is on the label is not
regulated.. Only skin care products labeled Certified Organic are truly
organic. Many manufacturers introduce a very small amount
of matter from nature into their products, thereby declaring the product
is natural or organic. When I compared the Toxic Tip 12 list to the
items under my sink, I was amazed. The kid shampoo had 6 ingredients on
the toxic list. All of my former "botanical" skin care had 2-6
ingredients in each product. Everything (except the EcoCert certified
True Elements skin care) had an average of 2 toxic ingredients.
and supplements taken for health can actually adversely impact your
health. Fish from polluted waters might be used in producing Omega
fish oils. In addition, substances used to bind vitamins together can
be very unhealthy - propylene glycol (ingredient in anti-freeze), sodium
laurel sulfate (foaming agent in shampoo), aluminum silicate (talc) and
sodium benzoate (preservative) to name a few.
fields (EMFs) are a type of low-level radiation generated when electric
currents flow through wire coils (monitors/TVs, fluorescent lights,
electronic devices, appliances, wireless networks and more). As we use
more electronic devices, researchers suspect EMFs are contributing to a
constant assault on our immune systems and overall health.[iv]
phones and cell phone towers are sources of radio frequency (RF)
radiation - an invisible form of pollution. Thermographic images show
changes in tissue temperature when a cell phone is held to the head.
Kinesiology strength testing shows people get much weaker when they are
simply holding a cell phone. Research studies showing the long-term
effects of constant doses of radiation are just starting to appear,
especially in regard to neurological problems. Numerous sources stress
how dangerous cell phones are for children with their developing brains
and skeletal structure.
there is a patented and proprietary technology that helps with the
problems and dangers of the EMF radiation from a variety of sources. See
the information on BioPro's MRET and ERT products.
crawling in a cave is not a reasonable option, what can we do to
minimize our risks and improve our health? Over the next few months,
we will explore each of these topics in more detail with the goal for

the toxins coming out of your body:
The Total Body
Applicator helps pull toxins out of the fat cells which often results in
measurable results (often in just one wrap). It also increases microcirculation
in the area too. It continues to work for up to 72 hours. Definitely drink lots
of water during this time. Try to drink Ĺ your body weight in ounces and make
sure it is good water! No sense in adding extra toxins. Series of wraps is best
(one every 3 days). Huge difference in my colonic results.
Itís Regular to improve the function of your bowels. Key in helping remove

days in a row.
