Nature’s Detox Plan
Something is very wrong with the health of our present population, and the medical community has not been able to reverse what seems to be a relentless trend downward with respect to the prevention or cure of dozens of chronic illnesses.
Virtually all illnesses result from some failure of the body’s defenses (which I will refer to as the defense system). This failure can arise as an inability to cope with a pathogen or toxin that entered the body, as in the case of an infectious disease or poisoning from ingesting a toxic substance.
This failure can also arise as an inability to cope with some biological abnormality that arises within us, such as cancerous cells forming tumors, or foreign deposits in our arteries.
Last, but not least, this defense system failure can arise as an inability to distinguish friend from foe, whereby the defense system mistakenly attacks what appear to be healthy parts of the body, resulting in autoimmune diseases such as MS, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and the like.
The common denominator in all of these instances is some issue dealing with the body’s defenses. Rather than viewing the problem as a defense system defect or disorder, the authors views it as an overburden of toxins in the body that either interferes with the defense system’s ability to fully perform, or leads to a malfunction in its performance.
Nature is used as a template to unburden the defense system from having to deal with (often on a daily basis) a lifetime of toxins. In its unburdened state, the defense system is then fully available to respond in a proper manner to existing illnesses, and to ward off future ones.
Many practical steps, tips and strategies are presented in a clear, straightforward manner.
