Are You Toxic?

Toxins surround you every day in foods, medications, beverages and even in the air. They all migrate into your bloodstream. Now, your body has to work around the clock to flush out these harmful chemicals, parasites and heavy metals. If allowed to stay in your bloodstream, these toxins will cause disease and hardship down the line.

Fighting back against toxins

You can’t eliminate all toxins, but you can trust your body to do what it was created to do.

When it is working at its optimum level—healing and functioning normally—your body is made to process and remove a certain amount of poison, but not the amounts in “modern” Western living.

Common symptoms of toxicity:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Eyelid, face, or muscle twitching
  • Digestive issues
  • Dizziness
  • Irritability
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Sensitivity to sound
  • Inability to concentrate (“brain fog”)
  • Hormone deregulation
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Sleep problems
  • Overweight and weight-loss resistant

Concerning trends

In 1970, only four in 10,000 children developed autism, a brain and immune system disorder that usually develops between birth and age six. In February 2007, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) published an analysis of 2002 data that revealed that one in 94 to one in 303 American children developed autism by age eight.3 That’s a national average of one child in every 150 or more suffering from Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

That’s not all. One in three adults develops autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus, a disability in which the body’s immune system starts to attack itself. In fact, America has more degenerative diseases like heart disease, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s than any other country in the world.
