Your Detox System

by John K Beaulieu

Your body has a system that destroys and eliminates toxins.  After all, many things that appear naturally in the environment are toxic, and we need to have a strong defense system against them.  Organs like the kidneys and liver filter out and remove toxins.  Our blood contains T-cells that attack foreign agents.  However, many people have overloaded or very weak detox systems.  High levels of toxins and a poor nutritional state leave many people more susceptible to the effects of chronic chemical exposure.
Even healthy people can be affected.  When exposed to a certain toxin, the body will respond by producing more of the enzymes needed to destroy the poison.  In a sense, the body has "masked" the poisoning.  It has prevented the effects of the poisoning from being felt, even if the effects would have been mild.  But, this has stressed the immune system, possibly leaving a person vulnerable to infection.
By switching to cleaners and personal care products that are not full of toxins, you can reduce the stress on your detox system, possibly leading to a healthier life.  I have not missed a day of work due to illness in over two years.  I have not seen a doctor for illness in three years.  My children have been to the doctor for illness only twice in three years.  I believe this is, in part, the result of my wife and me deciding to switch to safer and more natural products.  I encourage you to do the same.  It's one decision your family can live with.
