Detoxification: Why is it so important?
Life in the 21st century has challenged our ability to detoxify. Yes life can be a toxic event! Our daily toxic load has greatly increased compared to that of previous generations. This toxic load is taken on both passively and actively. The air we breathe, the pollution in our food and water supply, and the radiation and energy our bodies absorb are examples of passive exposure to toxicity. Conversely, the choices we make with regard to our diet, pharmaceuticals, manufactured products and relationships, are all within our control to minimize, or maximize, our toxic exposure. Detoxification is championed by naturopathic and integrative doctors. The standard of medical care should include not only prevention and treatment of diseases, but also the expansion of the functional life span of the patient. This is the first time in the history of humans that children are dying before their parents of chronic diseases. Detoxification should be an integral part of good medicine. We place so much emphasis in medical training about the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the nervous system, and the respiratory system, but very little attention is given to nutrition and the detoxification system. If these two areas are neglected the entire body falls apart.
Tocikon in Greek means poison, and detoxification is the removal of toxins that are poisonous from the body. Toxins can create a web-like chaotic event: deplete energy at the cellular level, oxidative stress, inflammation, inhibition of enzymes, and endocrine dysfunction. How to restore balance, harmony and health by cleansing the body of toxins? You must address to the organs of detoxification: skin, intestines, pancreas, spleen, and liver. A variety of techniques can be used to detoxify the body; however the very toxins that you desire to remove from the body can create havoc on their way out if the body is not prepared. A thorough assessment of the toxic load is important, which can be done through blood work. Some questions to address are: do you have the genetically programmed enzymes to detoxify? What are you detoxifying: heavy metals, pesticides, plastics, bacteria, viruses, prescribed drugs, chemotherapy, chemicals?
