Your Body has a BIG Job
The human body is a self-defending, self-repairing, self-replication vessel; combusting oxygen and glucose for energy, disposing of the wastes of combustion, constantly rebuilding tissue, replacing worn out, dead cells with new, fresh ones – a project on a scale of 300 billion cells each and every night of your life.
Because your cells are programmed to die.
Virtually every cell in the body is replaced every seven years (estimated to be 750 trillion cells). Some types of cells are programmed, at the DNA level, to be replaced more frequently. For example, scientists discovered that red blood cells are replaced every 120 days; heart cells—every 2 months; colon/intestinal cells—every 5 days; skin—every 4 weeks; bone structures—every year.
Here’s Your Body’s Challenge
- On one side of the coin, this ongoing process of building a new body, every 7 years, from the food we eat and the water we drink challenges the mind.
- On the other side, the daunting task of breaking down, recycling and eliminating the wastes created by processing several hundred pounds of dead cells, along with the toxins you breath, eat and make, everyday, boggles the mind.

Do you need some details
about helping your body stay clean – on the inside?
Wastes are Poisonous
The wastes of cellular breakdown, general metabolism and digestion are, to one degree or another, poisonous. Another word for this is toxic. If these toxins were to remain and accumulate in your body, you would suffer an agonizing death by poisoning. The body has a system to eliminate toxins before the buildup can damage cells, tissue and organs.
The two main organs of detoxification, the liver and the kidneys, act like filters, removing toxic substances, purifying the body.
→ If the body is faced with an overload of toxins (toxemia), secondary organs of elimination: the large intestine, lungs, bladder and the skin, are frequently forced into helping eliminate the extra toxins.
→ The secondary organs of elimination may become inflamed, irritated and weakened when are forced to process toxins. The results can be skin irritations, bacterial or viral infections, asthma, sinusitis or a whole host of other issues depending on the area involved.
→ Sometimes, the toxins are deposited instead of eliminated which leads to another, different set of complaints: toxins stored in joints result in arthritis; in muscle tissues— rheumatism, skin and organs—cysts and benign tumors.
→ When toxins weaken the body’s immune response, infesting/infecting organisms successfully invade and begin attacking the body or worse yet, genetic alterations may occur.
In a perfect world …
→ your liver and kidneys would keep up with their job for 80, 90 or even more.
→ the food would, of course, be very nutritious and free of pesticide residues, the air and water would be pure, food would not be denatured or turned it into high calorie/no nutrition junk food.
→ everyone would get moderate exercise into old age, and live virtually without stress.
→ doctors would have little or no work other than repairing traumatic injuries, because everyone would be healthy.
It Isn’t a Perfect World
Back in reality, the less-than-ideal world of today,
→ The air people breathe and the water they drink is far from perfect.
→ The food is denatured, processed, fried, salted, sweetened, preserved— overburdening the liver and kidneys. Fast, sweet and convenient are the dietary guidelines for the day. People eat whatever they feel like eating—whenever they feel like it. Everyday, people choose to eat the food that contributes to their decline in health.
→ Children develop the very same diseases as their parents because as children, they put their feet under the same dining table as their parents—their diet is overburdening the organs of elimination—just like Mom, Dad and Uncle Bill.

What Can You Do?
To change the way things are you must first change the things you do. Experts and nutritionists finally agree: “There is a direct relationship between staying healthy and consuming 7 servings of colorful vegetables and fruits each day.”
A great first step is to examine the habits that contribute to declining health and lead to sickness, then begin changing them. Be honest! Some example are: I’m 20 pounds overweight. I need help with regularity. I am uncomfortable after eating. Some people even write down the different issues that are keeping them from being healthy.
Everyone will have a gap in their diet, so don’t despair if you can’t eat everything you need to become and stay healthy. Simply fill the gap in your diet with a well designed nutraceutical program.
Remember, it is not what you do occasionally that damages your health, it is what you do everyday. Eat whole foods, drink clean water and use a nutraceutical program to cleanse and sustain your healthy body.
