Or perhaps every few days you get headaches that shut you down in the afternoon and evening?
Have you noticed lately that your immune system doesn't seem to be fighting colds or flu's like it used to…you seem to get everything going and are constantly either sick or seem to have become allergic to everything from the air in your house to the foods that you eat?
Today we see a massive uptake in…
- gluten allergies
- irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- acid reflux
- sleeping disorders
- immune system infections and diseases
- food allergies
- stress and exhaustion
Can we attribute all of this to stress, environment or more refinement in our foods?
In many cases all of this can be attributed to a build-up of toxins in our body that impacts all of our major systems:
- the brain
- digestive system
- lymphatic system
- immune system
- circulatory system
- respiratory system
The majority of the time this insidious build-up of toxins goes completely undetected as most blood tests and standard physicals don't screen for levels of toxins in our bodies.
Inside Attracting Greatness, we outline a very scary year nearly 20-years ago in my life where I had nearly every symptom under the sun and saw nearly every type of medical specialist you can name with absolutely nobody being able to figure out what was behind the various digestive, circulatory, immune and brain symptoms I was experiencing.
After months of lying in bed, terrible muscle aches, partial paralysis, major brain fuzziness and dizziness I was finally diagnosed with both mercury and arsenic toxicity poisoning.
From where – I screamed!
It turns out a few years working in a Building Supply store surrounded by glues, carpets, particle boards, and various other toxic building materials turned my body into a toxic waste dump which, in-turn, led to new allergies, weakened immune system, compromised lymphatic and circulatory system and a brain that was operating at about half capacity.
It really wouldn't have mattered how motivated, positive, and practical I was about personal development during these months…the fact was until I was able to eliminate the toxins from my system, life was a game of survival.
What toxins are we in danger of hosting?
- Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE's)
- Polycholorinated Biphenyl's (PCB's)
- DDT/DDE Pesticides
Just to name some of the more common that many of us are exposed to each and every day through food, the air we breath, the products we use (from chairs we sit in, electronic devices we use daily to cash register receipts we handle over and over again)
If we truly want to improve our health, energy, mind and body as well as be more positive, fulfilled, happy and productive, we MUST begin to realize the toxins that are collecting in our bodies and seek the assistance of doctors or alternative practitioners who will test for the level of these toxins in our system. The tests are available, you have to ask for them.
The good news is that there are ways to eliminate these toxins from our bodies and help our body recover from damage done during toxic overload. In most cases you begin to see improvements in how you feel within weeks with further gradual improvements in health for months after.
Do you suspect you may be "toxic"?
