Biological Detoxification (link)
We use Biological Detoxification to reduce, cleanse and eliminate the stressful toxic burden of toxins that have accumulated in your body over time from environmental, dietary, medical and internal toxic metabolic byproducts.
Americans Are More Toxic Than We Ever Believed
The average person has Over 90 toxic chemicals in their blood/urine. The chronically ill may be suffering from a toxic load that they cannot overcome.
In a recent study led by Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York researchers found an average of 91 industrial compounds, pollutants, and other chemicals in the blood and urine of nine volunteers from different parts of the country.
Even the least toxic subject studied had 77 pollutants in their body. Like most of us, the people tested in this study do not work with chemicals on the job and do not live near an industrial facility.
Summary of Results
The nine subjects carried an average toxic burden of:
- 53 chemicals linked to cancer.
- 62 chemicals that are toxic to the brain & nervous system.
- 58 chemicals that interfere with the hormone system.
- 55 chemicals associated with birth defects or abnormal development.
- 53 chemicals toxic to the immune system.
The laboratory also found 48 different PCB’s in the nine subjects even though PCB’s were banned in the United States over 25 years ago.
It is evident by this report that no matter how diligent we are with a clean diet, we cannot escape the toxins in our environment. It is clear that one of the main focal points of health and healing is detoxing the body. The chronically ill maybe suffering from a toxic load that they cannot overcome.
In 71 rain samples taken at the Quabbin Reservoir 65 miles west of Boston, from July 1997 to July 1998, the average level or mercury was 10 times the level of mercury considered safe by the U.S. Environment Protection Agency.
Where did all this mercury come from?
Across the country, coal-burning electric power plants are the largest source of mercury, but in the northeast, municipal waste incinerators are the greatest source. (9/19/2000 The Daily Hampshire Gazette). But we don’t have to look any farther than the vaccinations injected into our bodies or the silver/mercury fillings drilled into our teeth to find a source of deadly mercury.
In the year 2000, major US industries reported dumping 7.1 billion pounds of 650 industrial chemicals into our air and water. (EPA 200 Toxic Release Inventory)
According to the U.S. Food and Drug administration (FDA), over 35% of the food tested in 1998 contained pesticide residues. Fifty three pesticides classified as Carcinogens are presently registered for use on major crops, including apples, tomatoes, and potatoes. Additionally, more than 10,000 additives are added to our food supply. In fact, an average American eats about 142 lbs. of additives a year.
According to the EPA, more than 1,000,000 Americans drink water laced with pesticides. In 2000 alone, more than 4 billion pounds of chemicals were released into the ground, and over 260 million pounds of chemicals were discharged into surface waters, i.e. lakes and rivers, making fish unsafe to eat and water unsafe to swim in or to drink.
Some of the more common sources of environmental toxins can be found right in your home.
Food: It is now fairly well known that the average American consumes about 10 pounds of chemicals per year. This becomes even more shocking when you realize that every ten years 100 pounds of chemicals are going inside your body. Imagine your liver having to process a 100-pound drum of chemicals every 10 years. Even the healthiest individuals have to be struggling to handle this toxic load.
Air-Water: In the year 2000, major US industries reported dumping 7.1 billion pounds of 650 industrial chemicals into our air and water. Care to guess how many billion pounds were dumped and not reported.
Personal Products: These are chemicals we put on our bodies every single day and don’t give them a second thought; the ingredient lists on these bottles are so small we often can’t even read them. Here is your chance, read what it is you are putting on your body every day. In one day’s time the average person puts all of the chemicals listed below or similar list on themselves, and you’re doing it every day. We challenge you to try and read through this list of chemicals that you are soaking in every day.

Health Conditions that can be related to toxic exposure:
Chronic Pain and Inflammation
DJD and Arthralgias
There is no Escape
It should be obvious by now that you live in a sea of toxic chemicals. Patients with chronic health conditions are likely struggling under a toxic load that they cannot overcome. Years of exposure to this kind of toxic load can result in a myriad of chronic conditions. If indeed there is no escaping our chemical world, then it is absolutely critical that our bodies own detox systems are cleansed and functioning.
