Me Toxic? Could Toxins be Affecting Your Health and Quality of Life?


We’re supposed to be Healthy! Most people find that as they get older, things start to break down. Perhaps they gain weight or have high cholesterol levels for the first time in their lives. Or, they begin to have migraines, digestive problems, insomnia, or aches and pains. They may feel as though they are aging quicker. Sound familiar?


You could be Toxic! Every part of our digestion and metabolism was designed to keep us active for a full, long life. Our bodies are incredibly designed with self-healing processes, providing we take care of them. If we are not healthy, somewhere along the way we have interfered with our body’s normal process of healing. Waiting until we have physical symptoms before we think about good nutrition and following a healthy lifestyle is often too late. Learning how to prevent disease is far better than trying to cure it!


We are all exposed to thousands of toxins and chemicals on a daily basis at work, in the home, through the air we breathe, our food and water supply, and through the use of pharmaceutical drugs. In addition, we are eating more sugar and processed foods than ever before and regularly abuse our bodies with various stimulants and sedatives.


What is a Toxin? A toxin is either a foreign substance we take into our body that harms it and hinders it from healing (such as a chemical) or one that our body creates as a by-product of metabolism (waste). Unfortunately, one of the most common ways to become toxic is through our American diet! The fast-food American diet is high in bad fats, sugar & food preservatives does not give our bodies enough nutrients to maintain proper health and hinders our normal internal cleansing abilities.

How Toxins Rob our Health. When we continue year after year, to demand that our body handle an overload of toxins that it was not designed to handle. Sooner or later symptoms of disease appear. The body’s inability to handle toxins may be the determinating factor in most diseases. The better your body can eliminate toxins, the more likely you will be healthy.
