Hygienically toxic: Battling chronic disease

Why are chronic diseases becoming more and more prevalent?  It really is no puzzle.  Think about our daily lives compared to that of any wild animal or indigenous tribes and it’s quite easy to work out.  We get up in the morning and wash our body down with a load of toxins (oh the irony) and then plaster our arm pits with antiperspirants which are designed to stop us from sweating out those very toxins that we subject ourselves to!  We then slap on our face creams, after-shaves and body moisturisers which are loaded with more toxic substances that you certainly wouldn’t put in your mouth, so why on your skin? To top it all off, some of us will truss up our breasts in an under-wired bra, which not only lifts and supports but also applies pressure to the lymph glands, again compromising the elimination of toxins.

Processed food

Moving on to breakfast where we quickly down our breakfast cereal, which is usually some kind of processed grain mixed with milk or soy milk (just as bad) and perhaps an acidic cup of coffee, pushing our insulin levels through the roof. No wonder that kid in the cereal advert glowed!

We mustn’t forget to clean our teeth with a further mixture of toxins and added fluoride (if you’re really unlucky) and finally we are all set to go out and face that big, bad toxic world!

Are you still using fluoride-based toothpaste?

Bacteria

Now, I’m not suggesting that we all live in a bubble, as over-cleanliness is also a problem.  All I can say on this subject is that many folks have become obsessed with completely obliterating bacteria from their homes, which is an impossible task because if you are not subjected to them in the home, you will come up against them elsewhere.  Check out the hygiene hypothesis that states that a lack of early childhood exposure to infectious agents, symbiotic microorganisms (e.g., gut flora or probiotics), and parasites increases susceptibility to allergic diseases by suppressing natural development of the immune system. I strongly agree with this – a few household bacteria never hurt anyone

Some may say I am mad – and I would wholeheartedly agree – but having suffered with a rotten, chronic disease, it’s taken a lot of education to make me this mad.  Happily, there are many others who are just as mad as me and I love them, because we need these people to help show us how we can help ourselves in this inane battle against chronic disease.

Immune system

Begin by limiting the toxins you are putting into your body and actively enhance their elimination from your body.  Clean up your act with unprocessed foods, filtered water and toxin-free cosmetics for starters.  Now is also the time to boost the immune system with lots of sunshine so get out there, be happy and sweat!  The braver among you will consider colonics (fantastic) to aid the colon and take the burden off your liver which in turn will do a much better job of cleaning up all that toxic blood.  Glow with health, not toxicity.

Do you agree with Denise? Are we all poisoning ourselves with everyday items like toothpaste and antiperspirants. Let us know your views by commenting on this post below, and thanks once again to Denise for a great, thought-provoking article.

I am a fully qualified Colon Hydrotherapist and Nutritional Therapist and began practising from a successful clinic at home until I partnered with Nicola Askwith, a colon hydrotherapist and also a fully qualified homeopath, to form The Hering Clinic in Milton Keynes, England. I became intrigued by colonics after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in December 2003, at the age of 43. My relentless research into why I had developed multiple sclerosis led me to focus primarily on the gut and liver and I quickly learnt why it is crucially important for both to be kept scrupulously clean. I can say quite honestly that multiple sclerosis has been a blessing because it changed the course of my life. As a result I have emerged a happier and healthier person with a passion for sharing this knowledge with others. The Hering Clinic is now in its third year and goes from strength to strength. I see people on a regular basis who perceive the clinic as their last hope, having tried the orthodox route but to no avail. We are a private clinic and have time to listen to people's symptoms but no matter what ails them, we inevitably find that the root of the cause is usually gut and liver related, both of which are compromised by poor dietary and lifestyle choices. You can’t have one functioning properly without the other – it is a marriage that is truly underestimated! I believe that many of us really have lost it – ‘it’ being our instincts and common sense where food and lifestyle are concerned. Traditions that were passed down to us from our ancestors have wandered sadly astray down the aisles of manipulative supermarkets and are dead and buried under a pile of pharmaceutical prescriptions. I know of people who cannot cook because they were never taught and of adults who don’t eat vegetables because they believe they are unnecessary. The old ways can still be found, ironically, floating around in the ether or on the printed page, but you need to know where to look! In a natural, unpasteurised nutshell our ethics are quite simple. We believe in eating seasonally – no strawberries or tomatoes in January for us. We believe in a clean diet and not clogging our guts and liver with processed food – any food with a shelf life is emphatically dead. We believe in natural products and foods for both humans and animals. Don’t put on your skin what you wouldn’t put in your mouth. Cleanse your bowels regularly, keep your good bacteria topped up and avoid sugar like it is the plague. Practise conscious eating and be aware of when and what you eliminate, enjoy your exercise and take natural supplements to enhance your life-force if necessary. Most importantly, don’t neglect your mouth, which should preferably be free of both neurotoxic metals and root canals. These are the basics but will stand you in good stead for life, a good life.
