to Toxify or detoxify
Two medical philosophies exist today,
and have been in conflict for hundreds of years.
One wants to add toxins (poisons)
to a sick body; the idea is that the toxins will "fight" the illness – the body
is a hapless victim - and the cause is bacteria, viruses or some unknown evil.
Just give the
patient drugs, or medicines, or herbs – and see, you get an immediate
improvement (that is, no more disease symptom).
The other wants to remove toxins
from a sick body – this is also called detoxify; the idea is that the toxins
cause the disease.
When the body
detoxifies you can get a lot of scary (disease) symptoms – but hey, do NOT
stop them – then the toxins will stay in your body, and accumulate, and
gradually make you weaker and sicker. The last stage of toxicity is
Medical drug therapy is an example of
the first category. Natural Hygiene is an example of the second.
Adding toxins is EXPENSIVE
(you have to pay for drugs etc.). While removing toxins is CHEAP
(automatic body processes). Can you see why the first category is
In the detox theory, viruses and
bacteria are the clean-up crew, disappearing (changing form) as soon as the job
How to Detoxify
About detoxification; the body is
able and willing to remove all toxins by itself - but can need a little help:
First: Removing the toxins
HOW? It is very simple:
YOU JUST NEED TO STOP the constant influx of new toxins, by eating better
and avoiding new toxins/drugs. The body itself will automatically take
care of the detoxification job.
Every night the body detoxifies
automatically. You can help the detoxification by going to bed on an empty
stomach. Or by not eating breakfast, or have a very light breakfast.
(Example: eating only fruits in the morning.)
You can cut down on coffee, salt,
pepper, and other outright toxins like tobacco and alcohol - instead drink
more water, eat high-water content foods.
You can cut down on carbohydrates
and sugar, eat less sweets, cakes, pasta, bread.
You can try to eat smaller portions
- and use mostly raw, non-processed, organic foods – e.g. you can consume
mainly raw vegetable juices, which is a classic detox technique.
Being on a raw vegetarian or raw
hunter-gatherer diet is another possibility.
Every time a woman has the menses
she is detoxifying (to clean house to prepare for an eventual new baby). If
you follow the above advice of light eating and avoiding toxins, the menses
will be shorter and lighter – and the detoxification will be more efficient –
with these freebees: more energy and younger looks!
WHY do women
live longer than men?
Answer: probably because of the menses, the monthly detoxification!
Every time you have a cold you are
detoxifying. Just follow the advice above, the cold will be shorter, and the
detoxification more efficient.
Actually, most efficient is to
drink only water
and lie in bed – then you will be well in no time – and so clean (on the
inside) that you won't get a cold again for quite some time (until your body
is filled up with toxins to its limit again).
Second & optional: Speed-Up the
Maximize the energy in your body.
HOW? By sleeping and resting
more. If there is more charge in your battery, your body will work more
efficiently, with more power, and for longer hours.
And by not wasting energy - e.g.
eat less and better, don't stress and fret - then less energy will be lost.
Note: Exercise will waste energy
short-term, but save energy long-term (due to better functioning of the body).
Fasting is the ultimate rest for the digestive system. Fasting always gives
speedy and maximally beneficial results. (But you must be nutritionally
Possibly, optionally; usually not
actually recommended at all in
: Use detox-assisting therapies, but only if they are non-invasive, no-drugs
and light touch.
An example is CranioSacral Therapy
These therapies work by mechanical
removal of blockages in the cleansing (detoxifying) systems of the body: CST -
the craniosacral (cerebrospinal) system.
CST is of assistance when your
spine or cranium has a dislocation/damage of some kind, e.g. from an auto
accident, a fall on the head, or from Caesarian section pressure-caused
use therapies as optional additional help. If you rely on therapies only, your
body will soon clog up again.
Colon-cleansing is typically
enervating and irritating for the body, and will NOT help you detoxify,
despite its claims. If you have a minor colon problem you can fast - or just
change your diet. If you have a serious colon-problem you MUST first
water-fast, to rest and heal the system - then go on an improved diet.
WARNING: when you
detoxify – when your body initiates a detoxification due to too much "dirt in
the system" - you will feel funny, and may get cold-symptoms – perhaps runny
nose, sore throat, diarrhea, rashes, headaches, other aches and pains. This is
normal and good – just big house-cleaning ongoing!
Don't do anything - don't take
anything, no medicine/concoct is necessary or even beneficial - just drink
clean water, distilled is fine and rest as much as you can - or eat simple raw
foods in very small amounts; you probably don't have any appetite anyhow - lie
down and sleep more than normally. Let the process take its time - you have
to; or small problems will grow bigger and bigger.
Example: If you stop ("cure") every
small headache with headache pills, they will develop into BIG headaches. And
if you stop these with pills - the next stage (that may take many years to get
to) will probably be migraines.
Which is a sign that you are now
VERY toxic, and it may take months of detoxification before you get well.
While the original small headaches
would have taken only hours of detoxification to get rid of.
ALWAYS ASK yourself when faced
with medical advice: Will it INCREASE OR DIMINISH my load of toxins?
So, before you even think of going the drug route; try to detoxify - it is very
Why not after? Because if you wait
until after you have taken drugs, it will be much more difficult to detoxify,
since you have just added a load of new toxins.
ALWAYS BEGIN BY DETOXIFYING.
DO NOT add any new toxins to your system if
you can avoid it.
Note: if scare tactics are used, like
"you will die if you don't take these drugs immediately" - remember that
doctor-caused death is the 3rd largest reason for dying in US hospitals.
Contact an alternative health
professional and detox-specialist for a second opinion.
YOU WILL BE ON YOUR OWN - only
a few doctors nowadays know anything about how the body detoxifies. If the many
upcoming detox symptoms scare you, which may be the case especially if you have
been on strong drugs, contact a qualified fasting institution/doctor and get
Or find a local Natural Hygiene
group. If you currently are on drugs you must work with your medical doctor to
diminish the doses, if possible.
The drugs of today can be very
dangerous, so don't take any chances. The more garbage your body has to unload,
the more symptoms you will get, but usually one at a time.
BE PATIENT, it will take time
- unless you water-fast, which is usually very speedy, with fantastic results
even for difficult diseases - provided you rest (save energy) while fasting.
If you just change your eating habits
and sleep more, the detox will go slowly over many months, with occasional detox
crises (e.g. colds, rashes) when the body has some extra tough problem and may
even use increased temperature (fever).
In the end you will come out feeling
fantastic and very happy - like a load has lifted from your mind and body.
Remember that you have used many
years for accumulating all this garbage, so be patient. And that the improvement
will be real and deep, not cosmetic and superficial (like drug treatments).
Three major reasons for disease
According to the LAWS OF LIFE, Not
mechanical damage from accidents.
You may need improvement in all of
the following three areas. So next ask yourself: could the reason for my
problem be that I am
TOXIC ? -
Should I detoxify?
DEFICIENT ? -
Do I get enough sunshine, water, dietary
ENERVATED ? -
Should I sleep and relax more?

improve your diet, but don't
complicate it - more raw and more organic is usually the key.
When you choose diet method - it
is easiest if you eat approximately like your old diet, but with more raw
foods, less carbohydrates and sugars, NO junk or deep-fried foods, cook
conservatively, avoid salt and peppers, avoid herbs (because they contain
irritating chemicals), eat natural organic non-processed foods, eat
moderately, perhaps smaller portions more often.
Either drink water or fresh
vegetable juices. (Instead of juice, you can make a raw blended salad in
Being on a raw vegan diet will
work wonderfully if it is time-limited (to max. a year or two), or you will
slowly get into deficiency trouble. Being on a raw vegetable diet with
meat/chicken/fish will work very well.
Method C =

sleep more, rest more. Chew your
food well, eat less, and food-combine - this will save energy.
The more available energy, the
faster and more efficient detox.
Method D =

Be in the outdoors more, exercise
more, live where the pollution level is low, have a mentally and spiritually
satisfying life with lots of love, compassion, happiness, etc.
An optimally functioning body
doesn't waste energy - like fine-tuning your car.
THE MAJOR SECRET to having a
successful detoxification, is to understand the detox symptoms - which are often
identical to (acute) disease symptoms you probably have been running to the
doctor for all your life.
And DON'T DO ANYTHING about
them - just accept them as proof that your body is successful in its
house-cleaning efforts - and what you observe is just the emptying of the
Acute disease is typically colds,
runny nose, diarrhea, certain headaches - methods the body uses to speedily
remove toxins. If toxins are allowed to accumulate, the next stage is chronic
Illness is mainly caused by
toxicity, and lack of energy (enervation).
Nutritional deficiency is often
caused by high toxicity that hinders uptake of nutrients. Extreme diets is
another common cause of deficiencies - e.g. there are many examples of
fruitarians getting into trouble due to vitamin and other deficiencies.
Toxic and deficient are two sides
of the body's chemical status.
The body's energy
("electro-magnetic") status can also be deficient, which equals enervation.
(What is the other side of this? Electro-magnetic pollution?)
WARNING: when you
detoxify – you will feel funny, and may get cold-symptoms – perhaps runny nose,
sore throat, diarrhea, headaches. This is normal and good – just big
Q: Why not take a drug, like
antibiotics, when it makes my cold go away immediately? Detoxification
seems to take time and effort.
A: Do you want superficial
symptom-removal? Or do you want deep-seated removal of the cause of your
When the oil-warning lamp in your car
lights up - you can cover it with black paint - now it doesn't show anymore and
everything looks fine - that is symptom-removal. Or you can add oil - that is
taking care of the cause.
In the same way the cold, the
illness, is just the symptom - that you can remove with drugs = similar to
painting over the problem with paint - a cosmetic solution. You have not touched
the cause at all. The cause is toxicity, and toxins must be removed by
If you don't let the body detoxify as
it is trying to, the cold will come back again and again - and get worse and
worse - until you get really ill - perhaps bedridden for weeks. If you manage to
thwart even this forceful detox effort - the next step may be a chronic disease
of some kind.
It is smarter to work with the body,
not against it. Help your body to keep its toxin level low - and you will not
get sick. Perhaps never. And your energy level will be high, which will also
show as exuberance and happiness.
Q: But I can see with my own eyes
that drugs make me well immediately!
A: We have been told that drugs kill
the virus, or bacteria, that cause the disease. But is this really true?
Here is another explanation: one day
your body has some extra energy that is decides to use for removing an overload
of toxins. Housecleaning starts, and this shows as cold-symptoms, or other
(acute) illness (-symptoms).
Now you take a drug. This is a potent
poison, and your body slams all breaks on the ongoing housecleaning - instead it
has to concentrate the forces on getting rid of this new poison. Your excess
energy is redirected to remove the drug(-poison), and used up. End of
End of cold-symptoms. It looks like a
victory. But .......Your problem isn't solved, instead it has become larger
(since total poison burden is increased).
And you will feel extremely tired,
and out of energy for quite some time.
New cleansing effort won't start
again until you have gathered enough energy.
