If you are looking to improve overall health and strengthen your body’s resistance against conditions from the common cold to cancer, clinical detoxing is the solution. This practice eliminates the presence of persistent toxins. The human body is really a well-oiled biochemical machine whose biological processes are disrupted by toxins. Some symptoms are easily recognizable. However, other effects are more insidious and can have harmful life-long consequences. A clinical detox may be in order if you are experiencing:
- Slow metabolism
- Low energy level
- Digestive problems
- Chronic allergies
- Hormonal imbalances
- Acne or other skin conditions
A clinical detox may not seem as powerful of a treatment as a prescription from a medical professional for a serious or chronic health condition. But consider that, according to pharmaceutical research reported by the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, over 80% of diseases are related to toxicity within the human body. This means that even where cancer is concerned, clinical detoxing matters.
Medical experts expect about 10 million people to be diagnosed with cancer in 2016. Although this is a devastating number of people, the same medical experts also have good news. For those who do not hear the dreaded diagnosis, cancer is believed to be preventable. According to research, doctors believe that more than 90% of cancers are caused by environmental factors and lifestyle choices. By including a clinical detox in a person’s health regimen, cancer could very well be prevented by cleansing the body of cancer causing contaminants.
Smoking is the number one cause of lung cancer. Lung cancer is responsible for almost one third of cancer related deaths. It is caused by the activity of smoking as well as being exposed to tobacco smoke, known as passive smoking. Tobacco is known to contain about fifty carcinogens making it a powerful cancer causing toxin. Even if a person does not smoke or live with a smoker, occasional public exposure to tobacco still occurs. A clinical detox can cleanse your body of this contaminant.
Esophageal cancer is linked to the use of alcohol. Chronic consumption of alcohol also raises the risk of developing several other types of cancer: breast, liver, mouth, oral cavity, and pancreas. Daily consumption of even a small amount of alcohol can raise a woman’s risk of contracting breast cancer by more than 7%. Alcohol causes damage to soft tissues and the immune system. It is important that if a person consumes alcohol even occasionally, they should protect their health with clinical detoxing.
Diet related cancers are numerous: bladder, breast, colorectal, gastric, pancreatic, and prostate, just to name a few. Many of these are linked to the carcinogens that are produced when meat is cooked or cured. Unless a person opts for a vegan diet, it is almost impossible to completely eliminate the risk factor of cooked or cured meat from the diet. Routine clinical detoxing then becomes a necessity to increase optimum health potential and decrease the risk of developing cancer.
Obesity is linked to raising the risk of human mortality by way of many different diseases and health conditions, cancer being one of them. Several common cancers are directly linked such as: breast, colon, endometrium, liver, prostate and pancreas. About 20% of all cancer deaths in women are obesity related. For American men, about 14% of cancer deaths are related to obesity. Obesity creates neurochemical havoc within the body which leads to the breakdown of vital signals. It is as if a cascade effect occurs and the body’s communication system shuts down. A balanced diet, regular exercise and clinical detoxing should be a part of a healthy living lifestyle to help the body combat the effects of obesity and clear neurochemical communication pathways.
Infectious Agents, Radiation & Pollution
It is virtually impossible for anyone to completely shield themselves from exposure to pollution, radiation and infectious agents. Every day a person is exposed to any number of viruses which can contribute to the formation of cancers like Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma or liver cancer. Viruses are mutagenic and are a major risk factor for developing cancer. Air pollutants virtually surround us wherever we are, indoors as well as out. Radiation bombards the human body from more sources than a hospital’s X-ray machine. People are exposed to harmful radiation from the sun, high voltage power lines, electrical devices, etc. If you can’t live in a bubble, clinical detoxing is the best alternative to cleanse the body of pollutants, radiation and viral contaminants.
The wonderful news at the end of the day is that clinical detoxing works effectively to rid the body of contaminants. It’s like hitting the refresh button on your browser. The body resets, cleansed and strengthened. The human body is designed to heal itself. By performing a cleansing clinical detox, a person is like an artist setting a fresh, clean canvas upon the easel. The practice becomes a springboard for better health and a better quality of life in addition to the bonus of preventing cancer. Consult your natural health professional for recommendations on your own clinical detoxing regimen and begin living better and stronger.
