A toxin is any substance that causes irritating or harmful effects in your body. We acquire toxins from our environment by breathing them in, by ingesting them, or through physical contact. Every day we are exposed to new and stronger chemicals, air and water pollution, and radiation. We use more drugs, eat more sugar and refined foods, and turn to damaging props such as alcohol and tobacco to help us deal with rising stress levels. Internally, our bodies produce toxins through normal everyday functions. Biochemical, cellular, and bodily activities generate substances that also need to be eliminated. Other factors such as lack of sleep, exercise, or fresh air, and even negative atitudes, are thought to enable waste products and toxins to build up in the body and upset its self-regulation.
If your body is working well, with a good immune system and eliminative functions, you can deal with your everyday exposure to toxins. However, if you are taking in more toxins that you can eliminate, your body will reach a state of toxicity. If your digestive system is not functioning properly, there may also be an overgrowth of destructive bacteria that encourage even more toxins to proliferate. A sluggish liver, blocked skin pores, and congested lungs all add to increased toxicity.
The following are some fundamental facts about disease that are often unappreciated or ignored by most of medicine: (The following is a direct quote from the Book: Detoxify or Die, by Dr. Sherry Rogers)
"Sweat is the only proven mechanism that removes heavy metals, PCBs, pesticides, and other foreign chemicals from the body. Nothing else does. The far infrared technology is the only one that allows sweat depuration of zenobiotics at low, safe temperatures, even tolerated by heart patients. That is why the far infrared sauna has been able to accomplish what nothing else in medicine can in terms of reversing the true underlying causes of disease.
- Thousands of environmental toxins permeate every aspect of our air, food, and water. They are unavoidable.
- These toxins invariably make their way into our bodies. For many of these, the body has no known detoxification mechanism. And even for things it can metabolize and get rid of, the quantities and combinations we are exposed to overwhelm our ability to detoxify the awesome amounts we accumulate each day.
- The result is that we slowly, silently, innocently stockpile these chemicals in our bodies.
- Once these chemicals have been tucked away in “safe” storage, they do not stay put, but slowly migrate through the body damaging our cellular chemistry in a myriad of ways.
- Eventually the poisoning reaches a point where the damages result in symptoms and disease labels.
- All medications turn off damaged pathways, but do nothing to get rid of the underlying causes, much less bring about a cure. In fact by adding one more chemical to an already overwhelmed body, and using up further detox nutrients, they usher in new symptoms and diseases.
Removing the cause, the chemicals, is the only proven way to get rid of the diseases and symptoms safely, inexpensively, naturally, logically, scientifically, and permanently. There is not a single person who would not benefit from unloading their burden of disease-producing toxins.
Far infrared sauna technology is the only proven, most efficacious way of getting rid of stored environmental chemicals. The far infrared sauna pulls otherwise permanent toxins out of the body by causing a molecular dance with molecules of water and xenobiotics stored in the surface fat. In this way it does not drag chemicals out of safe storage and into the bloodstream where they could cause exacerbation of symptoms. Instead, it causes a resonance between the water and chemical molecules, enabling topical excretion via sweat where they can be wiped and showered away forever. This is the only known and proven mechanism for getting rid of the vast diverse array of disease-producing toxins/environmental chemicals. Medicine has no other option for lowering the body burden of chemicals that underlie all disease. We are talking about reversing disease, getting rid of the underlying causes and therfore getting rid of the symptoms, once and for all. We are talking about restoring the body to a level of chemicals it had maybe 20-50 years ago. "
