Whether you live in the countryside or in a town you are exposed to thousands of different toxins and chemicals each day of your life. Whether it be in the workplace, in the home in the air you breathe and the food you eat-every single thing is pervaded with processing, chemicals and toxins which have not been well tested for human consumption. Industries in the United States manufacture over 6 trillion pounds of 9000 different chemicals each year. Literally billions of pounds of chemicals are released into the atmosphere and disposed of in the water supply each year. Now scientists are discovering that pollution levels-in the form of toxins-in human tissue are at its highest level ever. And your body has to cope with all of this. In fact, your body is a wonderful machine-think of it like a car engine. Over time your car’s engine gets sluggish so you take it to a repair shop to get it fixed. The engine oil is changed and so is the filter, in addition, other items may need attention too. When the car is returned, there is a noticeable difference. It runs smoother and has more power. The human body is just the same. Over time, because of a toxic build-up it get sluggish, and various symptoms may arise, such as headaches, lack of energy, lack of appetite or possibly skin disorders. What your body is telling you is that it is time for some attention. And this is where detoxing comes in. In this book I have discussed achieving good colon health, as well as explaining various detox programs which are available, either from health food stores, supermarkets or on the Internet. One other thing I have discussed in some detail is the issue of parasites and worms, which can compete with you for nutrient intake from your food. These unpleasant visitors are only too happy to reside in a toxic environment-especially in your colon. There are many excellent herbal products available to treat a parasite or worm infection. One advantage of herbs is that they are a natural approach, without side effects. I have included a list of these for your consideration. For those who prefer to go down the drug route, I have included several drugs which are often prescribed by your physician for this purpose. Whichever detox program you decide to use, your body will thank you for it. You will clear out a lot of the toxic waste material which is clogging your body systems. You will have more energy, you will feel healthier and you will look better. So the first step is to read my book and then to try a detox program for yourself-you will be amazed at the difference!
