Our bodies are constantly
under attack from environmental factors and from the artificial processed and
heavily refined foods we eat. Toxins are becoming a big issue of importance as
our environment becomes more polluted. Most of us understand that there are
pollutants in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink and the
level and types of toxins that now surround us are far too great to list. Some
of them occur naturally in our environments and our bodies, but most deadly
toxins are man-made. According to T. Colin Campbell in The China Study,
scientific nutritional laboratory research showed milk casein to be the
most carcinogenic substance that we consume, because of the way animal proteins
react with body physiologically. The animal protein creates Angiogenesis
which leads to cancer, heart disease and diabetes, among most degenerative
diseases. It is this toxic reaction that cause the
most concern, in addition to the excessive consumption of animal products (beef,
chicken, pork, fowl, shellfish, seafood, milk, butter, dairy, eggs, cheese) and
not to mention, the unsustainable toxic damage on our global environment caused
by the animal product industry.

The thought of so many heavy metals now showing up in the food is a concern for
most everyone, however the real threat comes from all the artificial compounds
and synthesized, isolated compounds
that are being widely used in our foods, without almost any understanding of the danger they
represent to the human body. Of all the substances we are constantly threatened
by, it is the silent action of synthetic hormones that can cause serious damage
to the auto-immune system of the individual without them being aware of what is happening.
We can start to combat these problems through nutritional awareness and a little help
from physiology. An understanding of how nutrients play a symphonic
role when gleaning our daily requirements to maintain health. To understand how the body detoxifies itself we
need to understand a little about how the body functions and in particular how
our cells work.
While there are many cells in our
body that perform different functions and have different internal structures
they all have some basic function similarities. All our cells need water to
survive and work and they all have 3 basic components (excluding red blood cells
that eject their nucleus). These components are the
Structure and the
Plasma Membrane. Each of these components when combined
performs specific functions. Even though they may perform different specific
functions they all intake water, metabolize it and eject a waste product called
nucleic acid. This waste product is then dealt with by the body's main cleaning
systems; being the liver and the kidneys. This flow through system is very
important and when something goes wrong; like the cell becoming clogged with
toxins, problems begin to occur.
When the cell is functioning correctly it has a good flow of liquid (water)
going through it. The liquid has two ways to enter and leave the cell structure.
The outer membrane or plasma membrane is a selectively permeable barrier,
meaning that it allows some substances to pass while excluding others.
When a substance can penetrate the plasma membrane without any energy input from
the cell, it is called passive transport. When the cell must provide metabolic
energy, the process is called active transport. The movement of water into the
cell is an example of passive transport while movement of amino acids and most
ions across the membrane is active transport.
The Plasma Membrane
The plasma membrane as well as being selectively permeable has another very
important function. It maintains a potential voltage difference between the
internal structure of the cell and the intercellular fluid. Scientists are just
now starting to realize the importance of the voltage that exists on the
membrane itself. Its electrical value plays a part in helping the membrane be
selectively permeable. If this voltage drops too low it contributes to loss of
What is important here is that it has been scientifically proven
that an unhealthy cell has a very poor membrane voltage.
There are a lot of things that can start to go wrong when we exert an outside
influence on the cell, such as a toxin. Our bodies are more than capable of
withstanding low levels of toxins but when these levels rise too high, a chain
of events start to take place and the integrity of the cell is compromised. The
integrity of the cell can be affected from both the outside or the inside and
the toxins that cause the problem do not need to come from an external source,
because the cell itself produces a waste product that could be considered as a
As we have already said the
body has a natural defense mechanism for removing toxins from the system. In the
average individual, these systems are functioning correctly but under load the
system can break down and result in a toxin build up. For most people the threat
of toxin build up is not only from having the cleaning system not operating
correctly, but from the type of toxins we are now exposed too. Some toxins do
not remain in the intercellular fluid and become attached to the cell membrane,
and if the body is operating below 100% problems can occur.
Over time these heavy metals, toxic chemicals and residues, plaques and other
unnatural intruders continue to slowly accumulate. If the body’s natural
detoxification pathways (such as the blood, lymph, and cerebral spinal fluid)
cannot eliminate them faster that they enter the body, the buildup can
eventually reach toxic (and dangerous) levels.
At birth, when first exposed to the outside world, the
body – guided by a genetic disposition inherited from the parents– begins
developing antibodies to defend against external poisons affecting the system.
During life the body keeps building antibodies in reaction to most everything it
encounters: cooked/processed foods (and their preservatives), chemicals/toxins
in the air and ground, other environmental contaminants, drugs, inoculations,
dental fillings, sexual partners, and other exposures.
The average person is "Spoiled Rotten" - rotting from the inside out, with a
dysfunctional intestinal tract that is a breeding ground for disease.
The “inner terrain” referred to by Dr. Pasteur is our biological
terrain comprising our body's digestive tract, lymph system, blood, urinary
tract, intestines and intestinal fluids. Our bodies
are alkaline by design and acid by function.
Maintaining proper alkalinity is essential for life, health, and vitality.
Simply put - an imbalance of alkalinity creates a condition favorable to the
growth of bacteria, yeast and other unwanted organisms. All leading biochemists
and medical physiologists have recognized pH—or the acid-alkaline balance—as the
most important aspect of a balanced and healthy body. They have long known that
the maintenance of an alkaline pH in our tissues and cells is critical to
cellular health. We live and die at the cellular level.
The body is not without a barometer which
quickly indicates its condition. As long as oxidation is carried on to the
extent necessary to maintain the tearing down and rebuilding processes of all
parts of the cellular structure, the chemical constituency of blood and tissue
is predominantly alkaline; as soon as oxidation is lacking they become
increasingly acid and the percentage of acid gauges very accurately the state of
vitality of the individual.
As the body keeps building its protective wall of
antibodies, the immune system – like a cup gradually filling with liquid –
continues to fill over the years while the body continues to fight against
external invaders, forced to build and keep up the wall of antibodies.
Eventually, when the body has been fighting too hard and long, and the immune
system’s “cup” reaches its saturation point and finally overfills, the onset of
disease (cancer, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, or some
other chronic illness) often begins. No matter what the disease, its creation
began with the person’s first breath on this planet and can often be attributed
to the body’s constant bombardment from external toxins during life. Specific
detox programs can
gradually rid the body of its lifelong accumulation of toxins, allowing the
immune system to function more effectively and further promoting wellness in the
Body Toxification In Detail
The numbers of problems that can
occur from Toxification are many and the number of ways that the problems start,
are also great. There are however, a few basic causes that we can address to
understand how the body becomes toxic and how we can resolve the problem by
helping the body cope using its natural processes.

We are going to examine 3 basic ways the body becomes toxic in relation to the
effect it has on the cell. It should be noted that although these processes are
explained individually they can and do all occur simultaneously.
1. Toxification by natural waste product.
Toxification by natural waste product is where the body accumulates a build up
of the natural waste product from the cell, nucleic waste. This can occur two
A. Liver and Kidney function are low and
are not extracting all of the waste out of the intercellular fluid
Symplast - Plaques consist of hard waste products of
nutrition that are accumulating in the circulatory system
B. Toxin build-up on the plasma membrane,
restricting all of the waste product from leaving the interior of the
The basic function of the
cell is explained next.
It goes like this, water
enters the cell via passive transport, and water then reacts with the Internal
Cell Structure and the Nucleus. The product of the reaction between water,
Internal Cell Structure and the Nucleus is Nucleic Waste. The cell is very
efficient when functioning fully and reacts with all the water on a 1:1 basis
meaning all of the water is used with an equal amount of nucleic waste being
A. Low Liver and
When liver and kidney function is low the intercellular fluid becomes
contaminated with waste product. What happens then is instead of just
water entering the cell; the water becomes a combination of water and
nucleic waste. This causes changes in the reaction inside the cell. Now
there is a water, Internal cell structure and nucleus reaction, which is
not how the cell is supposed to work. The cell is no longer operating
efficiently and the metabolic energy being used is wasteful.
B. External Toxin Build Up
External toxin build up is when toxins begin to accumulate on the
outside of the cell. One of the causes of this is when the membrane
voltage is poor; the toxins can stick to the membrane. This deprives the
cell of the natural flow of water into it and also restricts the exit of
the nucleic waste. Once again cell function is compromised so the cell
can no longer function correctly. The process is cyclic, the more the
toxins build up the less efficient the cell becomes and therefore, the
longer this goes on, the harder it is to reverse the process.
White Blood Cell with normal cells
There are two processes the body uses to solve this problem.
i. Receiving from external sources what is required to raise the membrane
ii. The white blood cells.
2. Toxification by low level artificial toxins
Toxification by low level artificial toxins is where a toxin has managed to
penetrate the cell membrane and enter into the internal structure. Toxins can
achieve this in times of low cell integrity. White blood cells play a part in
One of the things white blood cells do is clean the toxins off of the plasma
membrane of the cells. White blood cells damage the membrane during the process
of removal leaving it temporarily vulnerable. Once a toxin has entered into the
internal structure of the cell it causes problems. To eject the toxin the cell
requires metabolic energy to perform active transport; that is, the cell needs
to use its own energy to eject the invader. If the cell does not have the spare
energy to do this a build up can start.
The white blood cells clean the cells in the body. When a white blood cell
removes a toxin from the outer surface of the cell it causes some damage. If the
cell can not repair in time, it is vulnerable and toxins can enter into the
