Is Your Body on Toxic Overload?


feature_lovehandleToday, 80,000 plus chemicals are in active production and our exposure to these poisonous chemicals is greater than at any other time.

We are consistently subjected to very poor air quality, pesticides, heavy metals paint fumes and household cleaners and contamination in our food and water supplies as more than 10,000 chemicals in the form of solvents, emulsifiers and preservatives find their way into food processing and storage and 3,000 plus chemicals are added to our food supply.

When these poisonous chemicals find their way into our bodies they remain there causing damage that alters our metabolism (the body’s engine). This creates hormonal imbalances and increases our risk of chronic disease as it lowers our resistance.

Believe it or not, research shows that there are between 400-800 chemical residues that have taken up residence in the fat cells of our bodies.

These heavy metals and chemicals make up the “total toxic burden” in our bodies and when our bodies limit exceeds what can be excreted, the body begins to store them and this accumulation is what seriously compromises our health.

Because of the increasing toxins in our environment and the foods we consume, it’s not surprising that for many people, this buildup of chemicals and toxins moves beyond the point that their body’s own natural detoxification system can deal with. This can happen regardless of body weight.

Since the body retains fats as a way to protect vital organs in the body from the toxic chemicals we ingest and create it’s no wonder that body fat accumulation in any area of the body, but particularly the mid-section is a sure sign of toxic buildup and a clue that the liver is not functioning as efficiently as it should.

The equation is pretty simple to understand: “our bodies react to toxic substance with protection.” First the body tried to remove and flush out the toxins and if that fails, it locks the toxins away. Once the level of toxins is beyond the level at which the body’s detoxification pathways can cope, the body begins to dilute the amount of circulating toxins in order to protect the organs and tissues.

It does this by diluting them and storing them in water and fat and because the majority of these toxins are fat soluble the body makes new fat cells to store them as far away from vital organs as possible.

You might just think of these toxins as the “radioactive waste” of the body that needs to be sealed and buried just like nuclear waste from power plants.

Compounding the problem is the fact that these fat cells that are created for waste storage are very stubborn and the body does not give them up without a fight. This can cause havoc when people are trying to lose weight and becomes nearly impossible to keep body weight down until the total toxic load is decreased first.

The moral of the story is if you want to make the task of losing weight as easy as possible, you need to eliminate the effects of toxins.obese-man-on-a-scale

Toxicity makes losing weight more unpleasant and difficult than it already it. Simply burning off body fat does not counter the effects of the toxins that are already stored in the body. If the toxins are not excreted at the same rate that the weight is lost, the elevated levels in the bloodstream can seriously hamper and play havoc with your metabolic rate and in the end only work against your body’s ability to shed excess weight.

When these substances are not eliminated, they build up and drag you down causing damage to your health. The liver is nothing to fool with. The liver plays a critical role processing everything that goes in the body and eliminating the toxins. When the liver is overloaded, these toxins circulate through your body in your blood making you feel tired and sluggish. These toxins can cause damage to your organs and glands, cause headaches and increased inflammation in the body, cause weight gain and generally make your body feel unwell.

The good news is there are numerous things you can do to detoxify your body.

A proper exercise program that includes strength training to increase our metabolic fitness also strengthens the entire body and its sub-systems which helps it to function properly and cleanse itself.

Eat clean to avoid as many toxins, preservatives, antibiotics, heavy metals and pesticides as possible. Always thoroughly wash fruits and veggies.

Choose quality grass fed and organic meats when possible to avoid added antibiotics and hormones.

Select and focus on unprocessed foods to avoid preservatives dyes, nitrates and harmful chemicals.

Use natural skin and hair products that don’t contain chemicals and dyes because the skin is a source of absorption for toxins and chemicals. What goes on your skin goes in your skin.

Take only clean nutritionals that do not use chemicals, additives or preservatives.

To sum it up, the simple steps to detoxify are to exercise properly (it must work the muscular system), eat plenty of natural, organic whole foods and avoid processed ones. Replace any fruit drinks with fresh water.
