Toxicity

 

We are the children of our planet EARTH. We are also parenting our planet Earth. This inescapable relationship is the foundation of our existence. We live in the ocean of toxicity. Toxic existence has become pervasive in civilized world as an invisible and potentially devastating threat to public health. As we keep our eyes “open wide shut” the Earth is becoming tired of human endeavor to conquer the dreams and aspirations of advance & survival. Earth has 7 continents (some argue it is only 6 as Europe and Asia represent a contiguous expanse of land. Humans have also 7 continents. (All continents are connected and separated by water in interstitial— space in between 100 trillion cells)

  • Brain

  • Heart

  • Gut

  • Immune system

  • Waste processing: Liver, lungs. Kidneys & Skin.

  • Support and stability: Muscle, bone & cartilage.

  • Communication & delivery system (blood, lymph, nervous system)


So… What’s the point?

There is a primal inter-dependence of everything. Toxicity surrounds us. There is no escape from toxic immersion. 

Aging is a major risk factor for many pathological conditions including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease (PD). The occurrence of these conditions, which are major causes of death in both industrialized and developing countries, has risen markedly in the last century, largely due to the increase in life expectancy as well as urbanization. In addition to changes in lifestyle, urbanization is associated with environmental degradation. Indeed, exposure to environmental toxins has been identified as a substantial causal risk factor for the majority of these age‐dependent diseases. It is clear that understanding the pathophysiological mechanisms that link environmental toxin exposure to these diseases is crucial to develop more effective strategies to prevent or to reduce the prevalence of age related disorders.


To better understand the inevitable impact of toxins I present following facts :

  1. Toxins around us? LEARN MORE

  2. Toxins within us? LEARN MORE

  3. How do we get rid of toxins?

  4. What is the testing for toxins presence?

  5. What is the treatment?

In this video I discuss what are toxins in the body, what are toxins from food, and why are toxins bad? I also discuss some of the many different ways we are exposed to toxins. Transcript What are toxins? Well, to say it bluntly, toxins are poisonous substances that can cause harm to our body.
How little of this substance will it take to cause death to you? What is the most toxic substance in the world?
 

Helpful Glossary

+ Endocrine disruptors

Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can interfere with endocrine systems at certain doses. These disruptions can cause cancerous tumors, birth defects, and other developmental disorders. The main effect in adults low Testosterone levels in young men;Estrogen dominance in women

+ Examples of disruptors:

  • Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) is a high production volume chemical used in the manufacture of a wide variety of consumer food packaging, some children’s products, and some polyvinyl chloride (PVC) medical devices.
  • Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical produced in large quantities for use primarily in the production of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring substances in plants that have hormone-like activity. Examples of phytoestrogens are genistein and daidzein, which can be found in soy-derived products. If you eat too much soy;tempeh;tofu and farm raised Salmon as few examples your Estrogens levels will be affected to cause irregular periods and decreased fertility in women and lower Testosterone levels in men.

+ GMO Facts

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods. Examples of GMOs foods:

  • Corn
  • Salmon
  • Soybeans
  • Potatoes

+ Genotoxins

Genetic toxins: poisonous substances which damage DNA. A genotoxin can cause mutations in DNA (and so be a mutagen), it can trigger cancer (and so be a carcinogen), or it can cause a birth defect (and so be a teratogen). Examples of genotoxins:

  • Fossil fuels
  • Asphalt
  • Solvents
  • Flame retardants (in mattresses)

How Do We Get Rid of Toxins?

  • Eat organic food

  • Wash fruit & vegetables in water & plain white vinegar in ratio 4:1

  • Washing apples in water with a dash of baking soda is the most effective way to remove pesticide residue, new research shows.

  • Use environment friendly wash liquids ( e.g.Seventh Generation)

  • Healthy cosmetics (Organic make up brands, aluminum free deodorants, healthy soaps & shampoos).

  • Optimize your body & mind engine.

  • Balanced nutrition

  • Hydration

  • Exercise

  • Nutrients

  • Sauna & sweat

  • Stress management-meditation

  • Use ear pods for phone calls

  • Minimize late night use of computers & TV


Treatment

  • Limit & eliminate known exposure

  • Detox lifestyle

  • Sauna,

  • Exercise,

  • Meditation & Yoga.

  • Detoxification & Cleanse

  • Optimal hydration 

  • Optimal excretion of end products to assure unhampered removal of toxic waste.

  • Optimal digestion by enzyme; probiotic and fiber support.

  • Regular bowel movement

  • Alkalinization to keep body tissues pH 7.2 and saliva &urine at 6.6-6.8

  • Use of Antioxidants to remove free radicals and support Detox pathway called Methylation.

  • Chelation techniques with DMSA;EDTA.

  • Infusion Therapy

Testing for Toxins

Approach to testing for toxins in our body should  be a systematic review of:

Vital organs taking part in detoxification:

  • Kidney function

  • Liver Function

  • Testing of end products 

  • Timed Urine collection & analysis for heavy metals

  • Blood testing for solvents ; pesticides

  • Stool testing
