How toxins in your body affect your health.
The average American has over 116 synthetic compounds in their body, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. It is difficult to lose body fat if your liver is congested and overloaded with toxins. Toxins and pollutants can be found in our everyday environment: tobacco, alcohol, food additives, preservatives, drugs and anesthetics, pesticide, heavy metal and industrial pollutants.
We need our bodies to function optimally and rid our systems of these harmful waste products which tax our immune systems. Signs of a compromised immune system include lethargy, tiredness, headaches and migraines, colds and flus, skin problems, breath and body odor and the list goes on and on. We often remedy these problems with quick fixes such as stimulants and over the counter drugs which are temporary fixes at best.
In its simplest form, the body is a collection of cells and tissue. Cells have electrical charges consisting of positive and negative charges. When balanced, our bodies function by removing toxins and absorbing nutrients from food, water and the air we breathe. Poor diet, stress, ill health, tight fitting clothes, even lack of exercise cause an imbalance and consequently intoxication of the body.
"Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise."
