Basic Information About Detoxification

Detoxification is. . .

Detoxification is the best method for the healing and recovery of your body. Juicing and fasting are well known methods to accomplish this task and both work very well. However, many people have been exposed to, and may have absorbed so many toxins and chemicals, that they may need a more complete and through approach to help rid the body of these irritating and harmful substances, so that healing and other normal body functions may return to normal.

There are three important sites, prone to becoming damaged with chronic exposure to environmental toxins and poisons, which may cause them to lose their ability to carry out their normal roles in the body. These most important attacked sites are: the intestinal tract (from the small intestine down to the colon), the liver, and the blood.

Detoxification of the gastro-intestinal tract, liver, and Oral Chelation of the blood are an important measure we could take to get our bodies clean and back to optimal health. (The kidney is also important, as the filtering/elimination system, but by keeping these 3 sites in an optimal working state, the kidney will also clean itself out.)

So. . . Why Detoxify?

A healthy, complete gastro-intestinal detoxification program (1)Flushes Out Harmful Toxins,(2) Works To Boost Metabolism,(3) Increases Energy Levels, (4)Optimizes Nutrient Utilization and (5)Helps Improve Weight-Management Efficiency

Who Needs To Do A Complete Detoxification Program Of The Intestinal Tract, Liver And Blood?

The answer is quite simple. Everyone living on planet earth. Why? Unfortunately, you and I live in polluted world of damaging toxins and harmful chemicals (poisons), with no exit of escape (unless of course, you live on top of Mt. Everest).

Total Body Detoxification may also help anyone who has, (and is in counseling) or had, a substance abuse, drug abuse or alcohol addiction / problem, as well as anyone who has taken prescription medication (anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medication, antibiotics, and others...) will most likely benefit from the results of cleansing. We must, therefore, do all we can to prevent the harmful effects these substances cause, due to their prolonged expose.

Since our body is a continuing absorbing machine (through the air we breath, absorption through our skin, and through the food / liquids we eat and drink), living in a polluted world, our bodies become polluted. Our surrounding environment is polluted, full of harmful toxins, pesticides, and many other dangerous, unhealthy substances, and as a result, we become a perfect target for their accumulation. This continuous exposure and accumulation through the various portals of entry, opens the door to the harmful and damaging effects they have on/in our bodies.

Who Can benefit from a Complete Intestine-Colon Detoxification Program?
(That is, from the small intestine to colon).

Here is a simple test which may indicate a complete intestine-colon detoxification program may be beneficial to you.
Take note of how many of these signs you have.

1. Have never done a detoxification program
2. Eat fatty, fried or processed foods often
3. Eat dairy products
4. Have less then 1 bowel movement per meal eaten
5. Have bad breath
6. Are often fatigued, tired with less energy
7. Are often bloated
8. You have food allergies
9. Are overweight (more than 10 lbs.)
10. Have poor concentration and ability to focus
11. Have mood swings
12. You notice you aging faster than you think you should be

If you have checked 2 or more, and especially, if you have checked the first one, it is advisable that you do a complete intestine-colon detoxification program, helping you to regain optimal function of your intestinal tract.

"WARNING": These are signs that may also indicate more serious ongoing problems, and the reader is advised to visit their primary care physician for further evaluation, should these symptoms persist.

A toxic liver may have a few extra sings which include:

1. irritability and mood changes
2. insomnia
3. Acne, rashes, irritated skin, or breakouts
4. Unstable emotional "roller coaster" periods

"Warning" same as above!

Heavy Metals, Heavy Metal Toxicity and Oral Chelation

First of all, there are certain heavy metals that in smaller quantities, are nutritionally essential for a healthy life. Some of these are referred to as the trace elements (e.g., iron, copper, manganese, and zinc). These elements, or some form of them, are commonly found naturally in foodstuffs, in fruits and vegetables, and in commercially available multivitamin products.

Our Present situation here On Earth And Why Oral Chelation.

Environmental pollution is the underlying cause of 80% of all chronic degenerative diseases (World Health Organization, 1974). These toxins are responsible for causing at least 76 functional and structural disturbances. Some of these include asthma, allergies, social withdrawal, depression, mood swings, sleep disturbances, anxiety, poor memory,behavioral disorders in children, chronic fatigue, rashes, speech disorders and seizures. A recent study says 7-20% of cancers are attributable to poor air and pollution in homes and workplaces. Pregnant woman are susceptible to miscarriage, preterm delivery and birth defects, when chronically exposed to pesticides and other toxic elements.

Since there is little we can do to change this, we must do all we can to prevent these toxic substances from accumulating and harming our bodies.

Therefore, identification (Omega Hair Analysis) and elimination(Oral Chelation) or replacement(mineral supplaments) is the goal.

What Is Heavy Metal Toxicity And Its Consequences?

Heavy metals enter the body the same ways mentioned above. We become toxic when they are not metabolized by the body and accumulate. Accumulation depends on the amount of exposure(Example: Surrounding toxic environment) type and quantity of heavy metals circulating throughout the body, the necessity of the body to utilize those needed for normal body functions, and the person's ability to eliminate those in access.
If this accumulation takes place at a faster rate than that of the natural detoxification process of the body, in time, this results in permanent damage of the whole system.

Heavy metal toxicity can cause neurological and cardiovascular dysfunctions. They can also negatively affect the normal function of enzymatic, hormonal, reproductive and urinary systems, and finally cause impairment to the detoxification canals like liver, kidney, and colon.

Signs of heavy metal toxicity may be noticed and visible in a short amount of time(acute), or may develop gradually over time.
In this case, a person may postpone seeking treatment, thinking the symptoms are related to something else. The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, in collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has compiled a list of "Top 20 Hazardous Substances." The heavy metals on top of the list are: (1) Arsenic, (2) Lead, (3) Mercury, Cadmium, Iron and Aluminum. (ATSDR web site:

Some signs that may indicate acute heavy metal toxicity are:

1. Headaches
2. Cramping, nausea, and vomiting
3. Pain
4. Sweating
5. Difficulty breathing
6. Clouded mind and thinking
7. Unable to focus
8. Poor memory and attention span
9. Impaired speech and motor skills
10. Convulsions

Some signs that may indicate and result from chronic exposure are:

1. Clouded mind and thinking
2. Impaired cognitive, motor, and language skills
3. Learning difficulties
4. Nervousness and emotional instability
5. Insomnia
6. Nausea
7. Feeling tired

"Notice: These signs are much more difficult to associate with their cause. Symptoms of chronic exposure are very similar to symptoms of other health conditions and often develop slowly over months or even years.

Oral Chelation Is The A Simple, Natural Solution Heavy Metal toxicity!

Oral chelation is simply taking chelating agents by mouth. The oral chealtion agents have the ability to to form chemical bonds by encircling the ions of the harmful metals. They form bonds with the toxin elements first, then force them out from the body through urine and excreta. The oral chelation agents also contain anti-oxidant properties and prevent the movements of the free radicals.

Oral chealtion is an effective way of preventing toxic heavy metal build up and preventing abnormal accumulations.

Our product "HM Chelate",promotes the body's natural, healthy detoxification reaction to common, mild environmental heavy metal exposure while supporting antioxidant and immune defenses.
