Are Anti-bacterial Soaps As Good As We Thought?

What Are You Washing Your Hands With?
Research on Triclosan, Your Family’s Options and A Fun Recipe!

For a while “antibacterial” soaps were thought to be a good idea. However, the Minnesota House and Senate recently passed a bill to ban the use of triclosan due to health and environmental concerns. Triclosan was first registered as a pesticide in 1969 and according to the FDA is now being used in 75% of all antibacterial soaps and body washes in the United States. It is also a common ingredient found in toothpaste, toys, clothing and kitchenware.

“Triclosan is found in virtually everyone’s home and is pervasive in the environment. These findings provide strong evidence that the chemical is of concern to both human and environmental health.” said Isaac Pessah, the study’s lead author.

Triclosan bio-accumulates in the fatty tissue and has been detected in breast milk and blood samples in humans. Studies show triclosan is linked to many health and environmental issues including developmental defects, liver toxicity, endocrine disruption, abnormal cellular function, impaired reproductive hormone activity and cell signaling in the brain as well as antibiotic resistance.  Researchers at the University of California at Davis exposed the individual muscle fibers of fish and mice to triclosan and found it impaired the normal contraction mechanism. Both skeletal muscle and cardiac muscle no longer operated normally, and this was true when the mice and fish were tested themselves, or their muscle fibers were examined individually in a test tube.

“We were surprised by the large degree to which muscle activity was impaired in very different organisms and in both cardiac and skeletal muscle. You can imagine in animals that depend so totally on muscle activity that even a 10 per cent reduction in ability can make a real difference in their survival.” Bruce Hammock, a study co-author and professor in the UC Davis Department of Entomology

  • 25% reduction in heart function within 20 minutes of triclosan exposure
  • 18% reduction in grip strength for up to 60 minutes after triclosan exposure
  • CDC research detects triclosan in the urine of 75% of Americans (Calafat 2007).
  • A Mount Sinai School of Medicine study finds triclosan in the urine of 61% of girls age 6 to 8 years old. (Wolff 2007).

Unless you are living in the country, making your own soap and personal care items or living off the land, your family has been exposed to this toxic chemical. However, the good news is – nature always has a solution. Research shows chlorella, found in NDF® & NDF Plus®, removes and biodegrades triclosan.

NDF®  is an organic heavy metal & chemical detoxifier that safely removes toxic heavy metals, chemicals, pesticides, organochlorides and BPA while balancing beneficial nutrients. It is a gentle detoxifying formula for individuals with a normal constitution.
NDF Plus® issafely removes toxic heavy metals, chemicals, pesticides, organochlorides and BPA while balancing beneficial nutrients. NDF Plus® is a gentle detoxifying formula for sensitive individuals with assimilation, immune and/or digestive issues.

NDF® & NDF Plus® increase the excretion of heavy metals such as mercury, lead, aluminum, and arsenic. They remove chemicals, such as PCB’s and dioxin, and pesticides, such as lindane. The chlorella cell wall in NDF® and NDF Plus® is a mucopolysaccharide (non-metal) ion exchange resin (MIER™). It forms both ionic and double bonds with toxins in the body.

NDF & NDF Plus Benefits

  • Improves memory, immune function, tolerance of environment
  • Inhibits excessive histamine response
  • Eliminates brain fog
  • Increases vitality, energy & focus

Atypical Symptoms of High Histamines & Allergies. Solutions by BIORAY®

Allergy Season is here! Many of us are aware of typical histamine symptoms – runny nose, itchy eyes, dark circles under the eyes, skin irritations or sneezing. Did you know high histamine can cause atypical symptoms in kids and adults including behavioral issues?

Here are Some Atypical Symptoms of High Histamine & Allergies

  • Heightened Emotions
  • Dark Thoughts
  • Feeling Anxious
  • Being Defiant or Destructive
  • Anger or Aggression
  • Obsessive Behaviors
  • Craving Salt
  • Falling Asleep Late & Waking Up Early
  • Bathroom Accidents (especially at night)
  • Chronic Erections that Do Not Go Away

High histamines are often a response to the liver, adrenal, and immune system being out of balance. Reishi mushroom, known as The Great Protector, has a compound called Lanostan. Researchers in Japan have found it inhibits the release of histamine and its protection of the lungs have been known in Traditional Chinese medicine. Dr. Andrew Weil, MD writes, “Reishi has been the subject of a surprising amount of scientific research in Asia and the West.”

Other medicinal mushrooms such as Agaricus Blazei and Maitake are also well known for inhibiting the histamine response which contributes to irritated and itchy skin.  All three medicinal mushrooms are considered adaptogenic and give the body what it requires whether it is deficient or excessive in a particular area. Most of the beneficial activity takes place via the Hypothalamic/Pituitary/Adrenal axis. These typically regulate the immune system and the body’s response to stressors such as particulates in the air.

Support Histamine Balance 

+ Loving Energy® 

Adrenal glands play an important role in mediating histamine release and irritating symptoms. Loving Energy® offers powerful adrenal and lung support providing relief within 10 minutes of ingestion.

+ Liver Life®

Liver Life helps to balance detox pathways and support healthy liver function. Lab testing shows Liver Life inhibits the histamine response and improves tolerance to food.

+ NDF Plus®

Research shows chlorella , found in NDF Plus, decreases the release of histamine by enhancing T-cell Helper type 1 (Th1) immune response. For optimal health, humans should produce a well balanced Th1 and Th2 response. Th1 responses are responsible for perpetuating healthy autoimmune responses.

Loving Energy, Liver Life and NDF Plus can be used on their own or in combination. For best results use all three. Start with Loving Energy and add in Liver Life and/or NDF Plus to enhance results. BIORAY’s recent detoxification study found that Loving Energy buffers irritations in the system very quickly. Mild imbalances resolve with a low dose of Loving Energy whereas significant imbalances resolve with a higher dose, as noted below. These products can be mixed together in water or juice.

The refreshing vegetable: Celery

The Refreshing Vegetable: Celery
Four Simple & Delicious Ways to Eat It

Celery is an amazing source of blood-building vitamin K, immune-boosting vitamin C, and natural sodium and potassium which balances our bodies fluids. How do you know a great bunch of celery? Look for bright green, tightly bound stalks that snap apart easily. Celery leaves should look perky; they’re particularly flavorful, so include them in recipes. Celery stays fresh and firm in the fridge when you wash it and wrap it in barely damp paper towel. If you don’t like the fibrous strings, use a vegetable peeler to remove.

As a Snack:
Fill celery sticks with red pepper or garlic hummus; top with a row edamame and sprinkle with paprika or cayenne pepper.

For Homemade Soup Stock: 
Cut 3 celery stalks with leaves, 1 large onion, and 2 large carrots into chunks; combine in 2 quarts of good water with 6 whole peppercorns and 2 bay leaves, add any other herbs or vegetable cuttings you have. You can include chicken bones if you like. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 1-2 hours. Strain.

Make Pureed Soup:
In a little olive oil, saute 1 bunch of chopped celery and leaves, 1 chopped onion, 3 chopped garlic cloves, and 3 chopped Yukon gold potatoes until fragrant. Add 4-5 cups vegetable stock, bring to a boil, and simmer until vegetables are tender. Puree in batches until smooth; season with salt and pepper.

Salad with Miso Vinaigrette*:
In a small bowl, thoroughly whisk: 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1 tablespoon of light miso, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoons agave nectar, and 4 tablespoons of olive oil. Slice 8 stalks of celery diagonally into 1-inch pieces, place in a bowl, and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Toss with dressing and top with 3/4 of a cup chopped, toasted walnuts. Serve alone or on top of baby lettuce.

Toxic Overload in Children and How that can Affect their Health

“Environmental toxins have become integrated into our daily life with modern times. We know we need gas to make our cars run. We know we need preservatives to make our food last longer. We know we need to fly in airplanes to get from here to there. All of these things use chemicals that our human bodies cannot break down. What ends up happening is these chemicals store in the body and they accumulate. As they accumulate we notice our children are not as bright, not as calm. They can’t sit still in circle any more. They may have outbreaks on their skin. They have bowels issues. Their taste buds change and they will no longer eat foods that are wholesome.”

Listen to Stephanie Ray and Dr. Jeanette Gallagher talk about the current issues with toxins in our kids. In the second half of the show solutions are discussed and how to use BIORAY® products.

Radio Interview with Dr. Jeanette Gallagher and Stephanie Ray

CytoFlora®: Intervention study shows improvement in immune response to unhealthy gut flora, strengthening of the intestinal barrier and 30% overall improvement in ATEC scores in 35 days.

NDF Plus®: The chlorella cell wall in NDF Plus® is a mucopolysaccharide ion exchange resin (M.I.E.R) that forms both ionic and double bonds with toxic heavy metals, chemicals, and pesticides and escorts them out of the body. Lab testing shows excretion of toxins and balancing of essential elements. NDF Plus® improves beta and theta waves within 5 minutes of ingestion per EEG. A 6 week intervention study shows a decrease in porphyrins which are released by the kidneys in response to environmental toxins and improvement in ATEC which measures speech/communication, sociability, sensory and health and physical behavior.

USEFUL TIPS

  1. Once the bowels are moving daily, it’s appropriate to begin The Detox Trio™. Start with Liver Life®, add in Cytoflora® and then include NDF Plus®.
  2. Wait 2 weeks between introducing each product.
  3. You or your child should only feel better. If at any time you don’t feel as well, decrease to the last tolerated dose and increase slower than you had before.

Pets Exposures To Toxins: New Statistics

In 2013, the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) in Urbana, Illinois, handled nearly 180,000 cases of pets being exposed to toxic substances. Insecticides, house hold products, rodenticides and lawn and grass fertilizers were some of the top common concerns.

Although this report distinguishes acute occurrences with pets, it is the daily exposure that has an accumulative effect. These toxins bio-accumulate in the fatty tissues and joints in our pets. Helping our four legged family members is just as important to their health and vitality. Environmental Working Groups unprecedented study found that companion dogs and cats were contaminated with 48 of 70 industrial chemicals tested, particularly mercury, flame retardants, stain treatments and grease resistant coatings.

Our pets have their noses low to the ground stone ingesting toxins. They also continually lick their paws and private parts. (Do they consider them private?) These sites are high for ingesting heavy metals, chemicals, pesticides, and unwanted organisms. The key to healthy pets is to support their body’s elimination pathways, such as the liver, kidneys, and bowels and to mobilize and bind these toxins for removal.

We recommend specific combinations of BIORAY® products to safely support your pets health. See our Pet Protocol, the chart below, for recommended doses based on weight.

Our pets bring us joy, relieve stress, and enrich our lives. They increase healthy hormones in humans such as cortisol and oxytocin. It is our responsibility to provide them with good food, water, and exercise, and to support them with healthy solutions to daily toxic exposures.

 

How to balance bad food choices and still make progress

You know what to do to feel great but sometimes its HARD to stay on the health wagon. If you want to cheat every once in a while, here’s how to do it right.

 

Diet or Lifestyle Infractions and Their Solutions….

● Coffee – We suggest weaning off coffee over 1 – 4 days and replacing it with green tea. Gunpowder green tea is a great replacement. However, if you find you’ve broken down and jumped for the java, follow the cup with 7 Pines Barley Grass tablets. Whatever you do, don’t substitute for a soda. Colas (especially diet colas) are a straight “NO”; you’ll choke on the number of barley tablets you’ll need to balance the acidity.

● Food That’s Bad for Your Blood Type – When ‘required’ to eat a food on your blood type’s negative list (i.e. the inescapable business dinner), also order two beneficial foods. This is will negate almost all noticeable negative effects of the offending food. This isn’t Vegas, but the 2-to-1 rule applies here every time.

● Not Chewing Your Food to a Liquid – While ‘learning’ this technique, take 6 – 8 Wobenzym® tablets with your food. This will assist breaking down your food for you. While this is immensely inefficient compared to chewing with your teeth (chewing increases circulation in the tissue and bone of the teeth which is healthy for you), it will also mitigate gas and your friends will thank you for that.

● Swimming in or Drinking Chlorinated Water - If swimming is your exercise of choice or you are lost in a desert and offered only tap water, add your highest tolerated dose of NDF® or NDF Plus® in your glass of H2O or drink just before swimming. In-vivo testing shows NDF® and NDF Plus® bind to free chlorine and make it inert.

● Energy Depletion/Inability to Exercise - Take 3 Oxy-Powder® in water and be prepared to move 4 hours later. This will lighten your load and give you some pep. Seriously, a clogged pooper sees no possibility, a clean one helps us see that anything is possible, such as taking a brisk walk or a wrestle in a haystack.

● Meal Skipping - Chew 10 Pines Barley Grass with a glass of water. This balances blood sugar levels, cleans the blood, moistens the bowel, alkalizes the body, has vitamins, minerals, protein, and amino acids and is fibrous (filling). Remember, this is not a starvation protocol. Eat something.

● Craving Sweets/Carbohydrates – You have two choices. #1- Chew 4 to 5 Pines Barley Grass with a glass of water. #2 – Bake cinnamon and fruit such as apples and pears with some cranberries until soft. This combo has an alkalizing impact.

● Craving Fried Foods - You are probably on day 7 – 10 of a full dose of Artemisia & Clove™. Unwanted organisms are dying and clinging to their last breath, so to speak. They will create a craving for something greasy or sugary to keep themselves alive. Don’t do it. Take a dose of Artemisia & Clove™, 7 Pines Barley Grass tablets, and some cooked fruit. It will all be fine in 20 – 30 minutes. Phew. If not, a few squares of organic dark chocolate is in order and just so happens to be good for everyone’s blood type.

● Raw Foods – You want ‘em? You can add them into this protocol up to 25% of total food intake IF you chew each bite well. If juicing include 50% of pulp. If you notice a decrease in appetite and gas, you have just slowed down your metabolism and are burning fewer calories and fat. Play with it. Try less raw and have a bowl of warming soup. You can do it!

● Bad Attitude – You may be feeling deprived and taking it out on yourself with negative thoughts or a poor attitude toward others. Try any or all 3 of these: #1 – Achieve an orgasm. This brings the entire body into a state of needing nothing (zero need in biological terms. Yes, we know this for a fact, having conducted several before and after biochemistry tests) or #2 – You need a bowel movement, see section on “Energy Depletion/Inability to Exercise” or #3 – Do something good for someone else. “Altruism promotes deeper positive social integration, distraction from self-preoccupation, enhanced meaning and purpose, a more active lifestyle, and the presence of positive emotions such as kindness…It is entirely possible to assert that altruism enhances mental and physical health.”

Move, Baby, Move!

Systems of Movement

While on the 45-Day Total Body Detox, committing yourself to 30 or 45 minutes of exercise 3 times a week will enable you to see significant improvements in your overall health and energy level. Reducing fat and increasing lean muscle mass speeds up metabolism, as muscle has a higher metabolic rate. A higher metabolic rate means your body will be burning calories much faster, even when you are not exercising.

We recommend that you engage in a system of movement that is gentle and feels good to your body. One of the fastest ways to reduce excess body fat is by moving. This is important as fatty tissues clog the arteries, increase blood pressure and put additional strain on the heart. Your body stores toxins in fat tissue. Reducing these fat deposits during a detox protocol inherently reduces toxin levels in your body.

Exercise such as yoga or Pilates encourages healthy cardiovascular function, healthy bone density, strength, flexibility and joint mobilization. The benefits of adding meditation are clarity of mind, awareness, and openness. Engaging in exercise combined with meditation balances the left and right hemispheres of the brain thus promoting brain fitness along with body fitness.

Another key benefit of exercise is increased blood and lymph circulation. Your blood and lymphatic fluids distribute essential nutrients to your cells and remove metabolic waste and other toxic substances from your cells.

Any type of aerobic exercise that gets your whole body moving and gets your body fluids circulating at an increased rate will benefit you.  If you haven’t been exercising, starting with just 20 minutes a day, three times a week is recommended to assist with removing toxins and increasing the beneficial effects of the 45-Day Total Body Detox.

“I really got in tune with my body for the very first time ever with BIORAY’s 45-Day Total Body Detox. I learned what it likes, doesn’t like, and how to maintain a healthy balance. Before the detox, I had no idea how poorly I was functioning. I did know that my sleep was restless, my energy level erratic, and my body felt puffy. During and after the detox, I fell asleep easily and woke refreshed, and my energy level was very high. I lost weight and my figure slimmed, and I am simply more comfortable in my skin. This detox is by far the most effective and best health program I have ever experienced. I’m slimmer and look better than I ever have. My body feels like a finely tuned machine!”

12 suggestions that will revolutionize how you think about eating!

What to Eat and Why:

BIORAY’s 45-Day Total Body Detox Food Guide
“I think the greatest statement I can make about this program is that
the longer I was on it the less I cared to get off of it.
Great program, great results. Thanks.”
~ Dr. Randy Elliott, DC
“I really appreciated the speed at which I noticed a change in my body and mind as well as dropped weight. Within the first week I felt lighter and mental acuity was better than it had been for years. Though at first I was intimidated by the dietary restrictions I quickly learned to live with them and even grew to like the food choices better than my previous free for all diet. The attention I gave to chewing and understanding of what I was eating gave me a new habit of “conscious eating”. This is something I’ll take with me forever.”
— Samba 
“At first I thought it would be hard to eat this day, but it wasn’t. I realized I didn’t really know when my body was hungry or full. I ate unnecessary amounts of food without really chewing it. I lost 29lbs. and 2 dress sizes in 45 days and have a toned body for the first time in years! Without a doubt the best health program I have ever done!”
— Jennifer
————————————————————————————

These simple but effective suggestions might just revolutionize how you think and feel about eating! 
1. Eat Organically Every Day! Our food supply has changed drastically. Far fewer minerals are found in produce due to the changes in cultivation and fertilization methods and the exhaustion of arable soil. Studies have shown that organic produce is twice as rich in some nutrients, contains more trace minerals and micronutrients than conventionally grown produce, and is free of toxic pesticides and disruptive hormones. And organic food just has more flavor. You can actually taste the difference!
2. Lemon & Water: We think of lemons as being acidic, but when they are fresh, they actually perform an alkalizing function in your body. Fresh lemon juice acts as a restorative for the body, supplying the liver with the materials it needs to correct unbalanced metabolic chemistry.
3. Stale Bread or Crackers: One or two bread rolls or crackers made stale by air drying are eaten in the morning with milk. Cut or break into small pieces, roll the small piece around in the mouth chewing it up until it becomes a very thin pulp. This is then mixed with a small sip (teaspoon full) of milk. If you are allergic, or candidiasis is present in your body, choose a grain that works for you. Rotate your foods, repeated exposure to one constant food may cause the immune system to respond to that food as an aggravation.
4. Milk: To give the digestive system a rest, we use cow, sheep, goat’s milk, oat, rice milk, or Kefir and sip it in small portions. Choose the milk that works with your blood type diet. Properly mix it with the saliva in your mouth, this begins predigestion.
5. Meats or Proteins: Eat small amounts – that’s all you need! Chewing protein well is vital to keeping ammonia from forming in the blood and being transported to the brain, which happens when protein is not chewed well.
6. Vegetables: Overcook your vegetables. No raw or al dente foods for 45-Days. Don’t worry; you are getting plenty of nutrition! Your daily intake of supplements on the 45-Day Total Body Detox is complete, providing you with everything your body needs. The idea is that eating warming foods opens and promotes good digestion. Cooked foods are easy for the body to break down while “tricking” the metabolism into continually being activated. Raw or cold foods close the digestion down; an effect you want to avoid when cleaning out the GI and colon.
7. Soups: Vegetable or meat stock works well as a base for your soup. Cooking a whole organic chicken overnight stuffed with a couple of Chinese herbs like tang kuei, rehmannia, and jujube are a wonderful way to get nutrients. Soups are a perfect way to prepare your heartier vegetables, such as root vegetables.
8. Avocado: After the morning stale cracker breakfast is finished on day 18, this is the recommended food to eat on toast for breakfast. Avocados contain foliate, potassium, monounsaturated fats (good fat that assists with the bad) and are very high in fiber – 10 grams in only one avocado. They also contain 30% more potassium than a banana and 81 micrograms of lutein, which maintains healthy eyesight.
9. Olive Oil: Use this for your dressings and sauces. The protective function of olive oil has a beneficial effect on the secretion of bile and pancreatic hormones. Olive oil is also very well tolerated by the stomach. Extra virgin olive oil, from the first pressing of the olives, contains higher levels of antioxidants, particularly vitamin E and phenols, because it is less processed.
10. Sea Salt: Whole sea salt contains magnesium chloride and magnesium bromide, which are easily assimilated and metabolized in the human body.
11. Honey: Use in your tea. This natural sweetener contains 22 amino acids, as well as a variety of vitamins, anti-oxidants, and minerals. Also easy on the digestion.
12. Tea: You may drink as much tea with or without honey as you want.
• Blood Type O : licorice tea
• Blood Type A: chamomile tea
• Blood Type B: licorice tea
• Blood Type AB: ginger or licorice tea

Is this the worlds most thorough detox?

An Introduction to the One Organic Detox Program That Does it All!

BIORAY’s 45-day program, you will detoxify and tone your body naturally. This protocol is effective for both men and women. It works in harmony with your body while allowing it to come into the shape that is natural for your metabolism. Natural weight loss occurs as your organs’ structure and function are optimized. You will revitalize your skin, look younger, get stronger and experience improved vitality as never before.

Our demands on the planet have reached excessive levels while we continue to inhibit nature’s ability to renew herself. It is our dream that you recognize your own contribution – both positive and negative. We can improve the health of our body, our planet, and our next generation, one bite at a time.

What We are Detoxing & Why with BIORAY’s 45-Day Total Body Detox

This organic protocol has been proven effective by over a decade of clinical use for the detoxification of heavy metals, unwanted organisms, residual drugs and harmful chemicals. It is designed to help the body eliminate acidity and restore the alkaline reserve while balancing hormonal, adrenal, and endocrine function. This is a TOTAL BODY detox designed to create a fundamental shift toward oxygenation and rejuvenation. It is also the best thing you can do to prepare for conceiving a child. To ensure a long life without health imbalances, it is recommended that we repeat this program once a year.

Introduction

The second part of this protocol is designed to restore and rebuild your energy and nutrient reserves. These days, we rarely take in the proper nutrients we need to support the healthy operation of different systems in our body. The BIORAY® 45-Day Total Body Detox includes supplements designed to do just that. Our 45-day detox shifts our focus from ‘How much do I consume?’ to ‘How well.’ How do I chew each bite of my sandwich? Do I chew one time then swallow? How does that feel? In accordance with this digestion friendly protocol, each bite of food is best chewed to a liquid, yes, a liquid! Try it! Chew it well. We will go into why shortly.

This is NOT a starvation protocol or a “crash” diet. Unlike many other detox programs, the BIORAY® 45-Day Total Body Detox can be easily assimilated into your normal routine and because you are not fasting, you will not feel weak or fatigued. You will experience an increase in energy and stamina. You will also be able to snack and enjoy a diet rich in cooked foods and protein while eliminating the environmental toxins and unwanted organisms that have been sapping your vitality.

Supplements are added into the detox protocol one at a time. In order to avoid detox reactions and identify any irritation, dosages are slowly increased, as per individual tolerances.

This program will teach you to understand and pay close attention to the signals your body is sending you. For example, a headache may be a sign that more toxins are being pushed out faster than your organs can comfortably excrete. This is known as a detox reaction. Your body will tell you everything you need to know throughout this process. You will awaken your deep listening or “the inner healer” as you go along.

What this is NOT

This is NOT a starvation protocol or a ‘crash’ diet. Unlike many other detox programs, the BIORAY® 45-Day Total Body Detox can be easily assimilated into your normal routine and because it is not a fast, you will not feel weak or fatigued. You will experience an increase in energy and stamina. You will also be able to snack and enjoy a diet rich in cooked foods and protein while eliminating the environmental toxins and unwanted organisms that have been sapping your vitality.

Liver, GI & Colon Health

by Stephanie Ray, President and Founder

Supporting the organs of elimination are vital to everyone’s health for several reasons. Here we are discussing the liver, gastrointestinal tract, and the colon. Longevity and a life without serious health issues depends on these running smoothly.

The Liver – Truly the hardest working organ in the body, the liver handles over 500 tasks each day. It is charged with breaking down food and absorbing nutrients, and sending those nutrients to the correct system in the body. It removes organic and non-organic waste and manufactures and regulates hormones. The liver can rebuild itself with only 20% of its function remaining which is particularly necessary in the post WWII age. Exposure to toxins occurs now at levels never seen before. These toxins are converted into acidic waste in the body. The liver is responsible for filtering out this toxic and acidic waste. However, the liver is often congested, in TCM (Traditional Chinese medicine) known as stagnant liver chi. The most efficient way to support liver health is to “feed” it with foods and herbs that support its structure and function.
The GI – Are you prone to winter sniffles and immune imbalances? Your gut is your first line of defense for these issues. When there is a significant decrease in friendly gut flora and a high level of unfriendly flora, it can trigger the onset of health imbalances and suppress the immune system. Generally, people only pay attention when things are not running smoothly.
The outward appearance of your stomach indicates how well you chew your food and how often you have a bowel movement. Approximately 1.3 billion people worldwide experience digestive problems. Digestion is not a process by which food is dumped into a “dissolve-all” solution in the gut. When you swallow anything, food or beverage, sensors in your mouth immediately initiate a process of taking in information and delivering it to the necessary organs. Enzymes are released through the saliva during mastication (chewing) and predigestion begins. This makes it easier for the stomach, brain, and nervous system to know what is coming and when to stop eating: “Hey! I’m full”.
The Colon – In a healthy colon, the beneficial flora count is up to 100 billion per millimeter. However, in the typical American intestinal tract, that count may be as low as 4 to 5 billion per millimeter. The best way to clean your colon is from the mouth down. Regular colonics can wear out the elasticity of the colon, much like a water balloon that has been filled and emptied over and over again. The slowing of peristalsis creates a continuing need for colonics. It can become a viscous cycle. In contrast, cleaning the colon from the mouth down continues the path of elimination that is natural for the body. When allowed to follow its natural path, the body will alert the nervous system as to what is coming and it will prepare the corresponding organs for action. A very efficient system indeed!

Every year, an estimated 2.5 million people visit their physicians complaining of unhealthy bowel function. Approximately 85% of these visits result in patients being prescribed laxatives. When the bowels become sluggish, toxins back up and we begin to feel unwell. We know from observing intestinal health in infants that they usually have a bowel movement shortly after every meal. The same is also optimal for adults. The bowels should be moving 2 – 3 times per day. Ridding your body of old putrefied fecal matter and restoring balance in the gastrointestinal tract is the key to decreasing swollen tissues, supporting a healthy immune response, and increasing longevity.
