What is Detoxification?

detoxification

Just like any other fuel-burning machine, the human body produces waste products from the metabolic processes going on within it. These waste products form lovely things like sweat, mucus, faeces and other toxic matter, which I’m sure you’ll agree should be eliminated from the body in the most expedient manner possible. There are a couple of ‘designed’ routes of elimination for these substances, which start with digestion and assimilation in the small intestine, follow up with blood filtration processes in the kidneys, and rendezvous in the toilet bowl. By contrast to this, the skin is a vicarious elimination zone, which …

How You can CHOOSE to have a Healthy Body

health is a gift eczema healing vegan

Eczema is a symptom for something far more serious going on inside the body.  I do not wish to alarm you by this statement, but merely to plant the thought that the itchy, ugly, visual aspect of the disease is only present due to something being extremely off balance inside the body.  We cannot wholly fix the external problem, unless we set at balance the inner body.  There is a huge disconnect these days between the various parts of the body, such that we go to one specialist for this ailment, and a different specialist for that.  However, this body …

The Industry of ‘Finding Cures’

Red and White Medication Capsules Spilled from Fallen Open Prescription Pill Bottle on White Background

In the last 100 years, we have unconsciously accepted a gradual decline in our expectations of health to spread across our societies.  Healthcare is the one and only area of significant public expenditure, where we have quietly allowed little or no development to occur, despite taxpayers spending billions on this sector every year.  Think of the engineering sector over the same time frame – we have gone from motorised horse carts with wooden wheels to mass-produced, efficient cars capable of cruising quietly for hours at 130kph.  We have gone from 4-storey brick-built structures taking months of construction, to pre-fabricated residential …

Who benefits from my dis-ease?

Wherever profit forms any part of the structure of a system, there will be marketing involved, and there will often be a compromise to the ethical motives of the system.  There are many online organisations, for example, who spread an important message, and help people in a huge variety of different ways, but need to use advertising to support the ethical work they do.  The medical industry, however, is most certainly not an organisation whose primary purpose is creating a healthy society, and secondarily making a living on the side.  This is a fully blown, corporate, money-making machine. Diseases like …

Why Your Doctor Hasn’t Healed Your Skin

We live in a society where we focus almost entirely on symptoms.  Let’s take a headache for example.  The first and only port of call for many people when experiencing such a thing, is to take an aspirin.  Within 20 minutes or so, the headache is gone, but what did we learn about the headache? Nothing! And when it comes again, the aspirin is on hand to deal with it.  It staggers me now, to think that so few people will even think to have a glass of water during a headache, except maybe to swallow a few pills.  Taking …

Plant-Based Diet vs. Orthorexia

Wheat edited

Orthorexia is a prevalent state in the world of health enthusiasts, and is a mental road block to many who desperately desire health but have not yet found the sustainable path they are looking for.  The orthorexia mindset tends to focus on restriction rather abundance, purifying the past wrongs, rather than embracing the clean future.  I have come across many who are so desperate in their quest for health, they are willing to try anything to put right their issues, and they have yet to embrace a life of abundance, rather than the restrictions that so-called ‘health experts’ throw at …

Why has my body done this to me?

Just like any other fuel-burning machine, the human body produces waste products from the metabolic processes going on within it.  These waste products form lovely things like sweat, urine, faeces and other toxic matter, which I’m sure you’ll agree should be eliminated from the body in the most expedient manner possible.  There are a couple of ‘designed’ routes of elimination for these substances, which start with digestion and assimilation in the small intestine, follow up with blood filtration processes in the kidneys, and rendezvous in the toilet bowl.  By contrast to this, the skin is a vicarious elimination zone, which …
