If you want to know your level of toxicity, have someone massage your back by “rolling” the skin with their fingers. It should feel good, but if your body is full of toxins, it will hurt! Another way of determining toxicity is to see how many of the following symptoms you have:
We are exposed to thousands of poisonous chemicals daily in our food, water, and air – chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, and radioactive materials. Toxins are in our beauty products, household cleaners, homes and lawns, computers and cell phones, and food. They produce cellular damage, allergic reactions, compromised immunity, and rapid aging; leading to symptoms of illness and disease, including:
Toxins can also be a trigger for neurological conditions such as epilepsy depression, anxiety and autism spectrum disorder. In fact, children with autism have been known to greatly improve after detoxifying with ionic foot baths (or after a bout of diarrhea!) and zeolite.
In addition to exposure from external toxins, our bodies produce internal toxins as the end-result of disruptions of our cellular metabolism.
Many of these toxins become lodged in our fatty tissue. As I understand it, the body places them in fat in order to “wall them off” from the rest of the body. Lodged in the membrane of your cells, however, they can still create problems. The biggest issue is that embedded toxins can mimic and disrupt hormonal balance, resulting in weight gain or the inability to lose weight.
With a normal amount of toxins, a healthy body releases them through various channels of elimination. These days, however, our body is faced with a constant onslaught of dangerous substances and the following organs and systems just can’t keep up.
Getting rid of toxicity can be tricky. While it is relatively easy to dislodge the poisonous substances (which are primarily in fatty tissue), they don’t just automatically go away. Instead, toxins circulate throughout the body, causing more harm than before because they are no longer “walled off” by fat. The trick is to “capture” and move them out of the body with a substance like zeolite.
The safest way to detoxify is to begin cleansing the body with food. Emphasize organic fruits, vegetables, superfoods and herbs that are known to naturally help the body release toxins:
