THE ORGANIC BODY - 1.
TOXINS - TERMS
N.B: *You are what you Eat and Breathe! If you do not change the direction in which you are headed you will certainly end up where you are going!
The Organic Body: The basic origins of any Disease in the Body can be related initially to Mineral deficiency and / or co - related to Vitamin deficiency, and in this more "modern era" also to many Toxins and Drugs. Infectious Disease can be curtailed if the Organic Body can either be kept in, or returned to, its Natural Balance and to do this in this "modern era" you must improve your diet! To this end all food should be Organically produced by concentrating on individual fresh foods that are part of an Animal or a Plant. Also use Stainless Steel or Pyrex to cook in and be wary of non - stick pans lined with Chemicals that wear off, and Aluminium saucepans.
Toxins are stored initially in the Liver to be treated, but the overload is stored in the Body Fat in unwanted Adipose Tissue. When or if the Body Fat is used up for Energy the Toxins are then released and flow freely throughout the Bloodstream passing through the Brain, the Heart and the other Organs in the Body. Toxins such as Blackheads, Pimples and Whiteheads are eliminated through the Skin. Social Drugs: Alcohol, Chocolate, Coffee, Nicotine and Tea are full of Toxins. Toxins are taken up as various Chemicals, (Usually only Fat Soluble) they enter the Body via Breathing, Drinking, Food, Medications, Swallowing, and through the Skin and other Bodily openings. Agricultural and Processed food Additives, Environmental Toxins, and the dangers inherent in Microwaves and Mobile Phones all add to a previously unheard of overload of Toxins in the Body. Over - Heated foods such as Margarine and other Hydrogenated Fats (Trans Fatty Acids) are in reality Altered Fats that increase the chances for Cancer, Atherosclerosis and Heart Disease in the Body. Overcooked Fats contain Acrylamide that can cause Infertility, damage to the Nervous System and lead on to Cell Mutations and Cancer particularly in the Breast, Uterus, Adrenal Glands and the Scrotum.
