We are living in the most polluted environment in the earth’s known history.
We are continually inhaling and assimilating residues from petrochemicals, plastics, and pesticides that occupy cell receptor sites and block hormone utilization. Consider the following statistics:
- 1600% increase in birth defects since 1980
- 250% increase in breast cancer since 1980
- 59% decrease in male sperm count since 1940
- 500% increase in cancer mortality since 1900
- 400% increase in heart disease since 1900
All of the above statistics are directly related to the increased exposure to petrochemicals, toxins, heavy metals, and other chemicals in the environment and our foods. While no process or modality can guarantee the prevention of these conditions, it is logical to assume that an ongoing detoxification program – the act of minimizing toxic accumulations in the body – will reduce the incidence of chronic degenerative disease and improve overall quality of life.
Environmental Toxins and Your Health
Why is it doctors now use the term “Early Detection” in place of “Prevention”?
Have we resigned ourselves to an inevitability that we will be diagnosed with a disease? And, perhaps that as we age, we should expect to slow down and have disease over-take us?
Wise use of medication is important and certainly has its place. However, we need to look closely at our current belief systems and the health care system we have created. There are many people in trouble with their health right now. If we want change, we need to examine and probably modify our belief about how health is obtained.
Unfortunately, with the amount of environmental toxins we are now exposed to, we need to take action in order to prevent disease from setting in.
Did you know the following?
- Over the last 50 years, over 70,000 chemicals have been introduced into the environment?
- Only 3% of the chemicals released have been studied?
- Every person on the planet is now polluted with chemicals?
- The water supply in 35 of the 50 United States is tainted with chemicals from rocket fuel?
- According to the World Health Organization, at least 80% of all cancers are due to environmental toxins and chemicals in our body?
- Over their lifetime, each American will ingest or absorb at least 5 pounds of toxic materials!
- How do we know what all these chemicals do in our body – whether alone or particularly in conjunction with each other?
Whether it’s from the environment, food we eat, air we breath or water we drink, we are exposed daily to many different toxins. We can reduce our exposure, but we can’t entirely stop toxins from entering our body because there are so many of them polluting our planet. But, we can take measures to prevent damage from occurring in our body!
Virtually all alternative healing approaches make liberal use of detoxification protocols. Detoxifying the body has been a familiar modality to all ancient healing traditions, including Ayurvedic, Chinese, and Native American for thousands of years.
In humans, organs such as the kidneys and the large intestine eliminate wastes and toxins, maintaining the internal environment in the most ideal condition. However, there are limitations: If we eat too many poison-producing foods, or not enough of the materials needed to clean out poisons, then our internal environment changes beyond the body’s control. It deviates from the optimum conditions in which our cells can live, and the cells become sick and die. Many illnesses are the body’s attempt to clean up its internal environment. The body secretes and maintains many different types of fluids; the most important is blood, which has a pH level of 7.4 – slightly alkaline. This alkalinity has to be kept almost constant, even minor variations are dangerous. With too acid blood, the heart relaxes and ceases to beat; with too alkaline blood, it contracts and ceases to beat.
In today’s toxic environment, tissue acid wastes, chemical and heavy metal residues build up in the body faster than ever before, resulting in a greater incidence of allergies as well as a whole range of mental and physical ailments. To combat these increasing problems, herbal and homeopathic detoxification programs as well as saunas are being offered by alternative health practitioners.
Most healing traditions offer body purification as a means of healing and as prevention of disease. Pimples, rashes, dark circles under the eyes, swollen joints, yellow, green, and blotched complexions often indicate a buildup of toxic waste products inside the body. Detoxification with the Spa Life Detox Spa have been shown to substantially reduce and even eliminate these conditions. Dietary modification help reduce future accumulations of toxins.
Ever increasing exposure to toxicity in and around us make ongoing periodic detoxification essential in order to maintain health and prevent disease. The Spa Life Detox Health Device, in combination with a healthy lifestyle, provides a thorough and efficient way to high energy levels and promote long term wellness.
Here at Detox, we feel that it is our duty to educate and inform our customers of the hazards that they are in contact with on a daily basis.
It is now up to you to decide if you want to continue being toxic and risk your health and the health of your loved ones, when you now have a natural, drug free, no side effects, healthy alternative.
