The Benefits of Detoxification
Science has shown that the effects of detoxification on our body’s cells is nothing short of miraculous. The following is an excerpt from Natasha Lee’s article “Could Detoxification be the Fountain of Youth?
“Dr. Alexis Carrel, of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research performed an amazing experiment in the early 1900’s. He managed to sustain the life of cells from a chicken embryo by immersing it in a solution containing all the nutrients necessary for life and changing the solution daily. The cells took up nutrients from the nutrient-rich broth and excreted their wastes into the same solution. The only thing Dr. Carrel did each day was discard the old solution and replace it with fresh nutrient solution. The chicken cells lived for 29 years until one night Dr. Carrel’s assistant forgot to change the polluted solution! We do not know how much longer the cell’s life could have been maintained.
Dr. Carrel concluded at the end of his experiment that the cell is actually immortal. It is merely the fluid in which it floats which degenerates. He is quoted saying “The cell is immortal, renew this fluid at intervals, give the cell something on which to feed and, so far as we know, the pulsation of life may go on forever.” The average chicken lives about 7 years. His detoxified, properly nourished chicken cell lived for 29 years.
It may be hard to believe that the body could live indefinitely, however, a similar level of vibrant health and life extension can be created in humans by following the obvious similar principal.
Every cell in our body excretes waste material which becomes toxic, and poisonous to our bodies if we allow it to build up faster than we renew the fluid in which it floats. According to the above experiment, this is the cause of aging and degeneration. Factors such as “time” and ideas such as “that’s just life” fade from the picture, with new data in view. The fact is, every 7 years we have a completely new set of bones, teeth, skin and hair. Logically, a person should be able to look and feel better than they did 7 years ago by changing and improving the way they take care of their own body as Dr. Carrel took care of his chicken cell.
Time alone is not a disease or poison, it is the toxins that accumulate with time that the body cannot withstand and so deteriorates from. In other words, time alone is not the cause of death. Poisons are the cause of death of life forms.
So, logically and from the above data by detoxifying your cells a person can freshen up and grow healthier and younger than they once were by practicing this principle. Periodically detoxifying the body, drinking lots of fresh water and staying smart on nutrition can appear to work miracles. Dr. Carrel however proved these amazing results are not miracles, just good science.”
Kathryn Alexander, one of the leading experts in detoxification and dietary healing states it succinctly, “The legacy of 50 years exposure to persistent man-made chemicals combined with the denigration of the food chain has increased our susceptibility to chronic degenerative disease and cancer. Reversal can only come about by resolving these primary causes of disease. By releasing the toxic burden of the body and restoring its nutritional status, we can change our internal environment and achieve good health.”
The most common symptom of autointoxication (self-poisoning caused by endogenous microorganisms, metabolic wastes, or other toxins produced within the body) is mental dullness and fatigue. Other common symptoms are headache, constipation, diarrhea, colds, general aches and pains, particularly up and down the spine and especially in the low back, skin problems, common infections (due to lowered immuno-competence), morning sluggishness, gas, bad breath, foul-smelling stool, allergies, intolerance to fatty foods, premenstrual tension, breast soreness and tendency to repeated vaginal infections. The good news? Detoxification can relieve these symptoms!
Using CLAY to Detox
So, how do we go about this detox business? The answer is simple – CLAY! But not just any clay. Only those clays within specific groups (Clayever is the one so far i can recomend) have the ability to absorb as well as adsorb. This means that as the clay passes through your body, its negative ionic charge will draw to it anything with a positive charge (bacteria, viruses, toxins, etc.) and will remove them from your body. The clay adsorbs (positively charged particles are drawn to, and stick to its surface) and also absorbs these particles. The clay passes through your body, and the toxins are removed as waste. For this purpose, we highly recommend a pure Clay.
Ran Knishinsky, advocate of eating or drinking clay daily. he states some of the benefits reported by people using liquid clay for a period of two to four weeks include: improved intestinal regularity; relief from chronic constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, and ulcers; a surge in physical energy; clearer complexion; brighter, whiter eyes; enhanced alertness; emotional uplift; improved tissue and gum repair; and increased resistance to infections. Clay works on the entire organism. No part of the body is left untouched by its healing energies.
I recommend taking clay daily to maintain a good, clean digestive system. Normal amounts for adults to take are as follows: Liquid Clay – 1 to 2 Ounces daily, Hydrated Clay – 1 to 2 Tablespoons daily. So, choose your method and stick with it! When taking clay internally, it is very important to keep the body hydrated by drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. The water helps to soften and loosen impacted fecal material lining the walls of the small intestine and colon. This material is then absorbed by the clay and removed from the body through normal elimination.
To do a detox, however, higher doses are recommended. Take 3 ounces three times a day of the premix the liquid for 4-6 weeks and then gradually reduce to 1-2 ounces a day for maintenance. And if you’re taking any medication, it is recommended to wait 1-3 hours before ingesting clay, but please check with your physician, as medications vary in time release and content. Also, Clay Baths are highly beneficial for detoxification, especially for cases of heavy metal poisoning. The directions for Clay Baths are listed below:
