Toxins are everywhere. We are surrounded. It is like being at the Alamo. Instead of facing enemy soldiers, we are encircled by an army of deadly toxins.
We are exposed to an endless variety of toxins in the air we breathe and the foods we eat. We are also exposed to toxic chemicals in items we come into contact with every day such as synthetic carpets, paints, hair spray, cosmetics, detergents, etc.
Harmful chemicals and disease causing germs are swarming around us 24 hours a day. No matter what we do, we cannot prevent contact with all harmful substances. Nor can we stop all toxins from entering our bodies. In fact, it is normal for the body to contain some toxins. Fortunately, our bodies were designed to neutralize and eliminate these toxic substances as quickly as possible to maintain good health. The immune system, liver, kidneys, and other organs work together to remove harmful substances from the body.
Toxins are also created inside all of us as a natural byproduct of cellular metabolism. This debris is quickly gathered up and removed from the body. If it were not removed, this waste would poison us and we would slowly degenerate, sicken and die. The body is fully capable of handling the cleanup and removal of most naturally occurring toxins. It has enough reserve strength to fight off infections from micro-organisms without serious complications.
However, when toxins accumulate or are created faster than they can be eliminated, an environment is created in which dis-ease develops. Dis-ease is defined as any form of discomfort caused by cellular or tissue malfunction, sickness, or feelings of ill health that put the body or mind at dis-ease.
How do you get rid of these health-destroying toxins? The first thing you should do is avoid environmental toxins whenever possible like tobacco smoke, industrial pollution, and junk foods. Another thing you must do is eat plenty of fresh, wholesome foods and get regular exercise. Vitamins, minerals, and herbs can be helpful too. Some herbs function as detoxifiers – they aid the body in flushing out toxic debris. Many of the herbs in JC Tonic®are detoxifiers. That is why people often notice cleansing symptoms when they start using the product. Their body is capable of healing itself from most any disease or degenerative condition if given the chance, that is, if you do those things that promote good health like eating a nutritious diet and taking detoxifying herbs.
