Is Detoxing for You?

Robyn Openshaw is a researcher and expert in human detoxification.

You’ve heard about cleansing or detoxing, and maybe you’ve wondered:

  • Is it scary?
  • Will I suffer?
  • Will I be hungry?
  • Don’t I have a liver and kidneys already “detoxing” for me?
  • Will my food addictions get the best of me?
  • Will I fail?

Robyn made this short video about WHO should detoxify, and WHY…..after over 20 years of studying with the most gifted and knowledgeable holistic clinicians all over the world–on 4 continents, in 19 clinics.

She learned that the vast majority of medical doctors have no idea how to optimize the detoxification pathways of the body.

And why you NEED to, just like you need to change the air filter and oil filter in your car.

(If you’d had a Model T in the 1930’s during the infamous Dust Bowl, could you have driven forever without changing the air filter? With 84,000 chemicals approved for use in our environment now….well, it’s the equivalent of the Dust Bowl!)

Eating processed food and animal products, and even conventional produce sprayed with herbicides and pesticides, adds to your Toxic Body Burden. (That is, the amount of toxicity that goes in, reduced by the amount that is filtered out, by your organs of elimination.)

Toxins in your beauty products and in your water and air are other sources of exposure.

We live in a strange new world full of synthetic chemicals harmful to human life, everywhere.

(The Environmental Working Group estimates the average woman is exposed to over 100 harmful chemicals every week, through personal care products alone!)

In your food, there are genetically modified ingredients, synthetic additives, preservatives, nitrites and nitrates in cured meats, neurotoxins like MSG and aspartame in hundreds of products. And so much more.

Municipal water contains endocrine disruptors like chlorine, fluoride, phthalates, and even residuals of prescription drugs. Bottled water contains leached plastics.

In Robyn’s Detox Video Masterclass she’s made available to us, Robyn tackles all these topics.

If you’ve ever wondered what you can do, to eliminate more toxicity from your body, check out her 4 really educational inspiring and educational videos in the masterclass on these topics:

She’s offering you a spot in her FREE video class, on how to clean up and reboot your organs of elimination, to feel better than you have in 20 years.

VIDEO: Is Detoxing For You?
After 20 years of research and experimentation, Robyn has now supported over 10,000 people through a 26-day detox process.

She’s gathered data, including 500 detoxers’ inspiring stories, and she has some pretty interesting things to say about what happens, in the process!

 

(What’s “easy and fun.” What’s “hard.” She’s really honest about it.)

If you think detoxing is for weight loss, think again. Watch the short video to learn why some folks in the “ideal weight” category are shown to be at higher risk than those with lots of external body fat.

Detoxing is for anyone who lives where there’s car exhaust, processed food, chlorine and fluoride in the water, electronic devices in your energy field, or who experiences chronic stress. Robyn explains why.

It’s a strange, polluted world out there, and we have to get very smart, to eliminate higher-than-ever “toxic body burden.”

That’s where A (the input of toxic chemicals) minus B (the amount of chemical burden your elimination channels successfully excrete) = C (what’s left).

So, what do you do about the remainder? That overwhelm of toxicity, when kidneys, liver, lymphatic system, blood, and respiratory system can’t keep up?

An extremely well tested detoxification process radically reduces your disease risk.

Plus, following the program for 26 days robs your fat stores of the job they’re currently doing for you.

(Because your fat stores are hoarding toxic chemicals. Why? So they don’t get into critical organs and kill you. Your fat plays a very important role, especially around the middle of your body. And your body will keep hoarding fat, until you decrease that toxic body burden.)

I highly recommend this Video Masterclass, where Robyn explains that. She began researching detoxification when she was obese, very ill with 21 diseases, and her 1-year old was dying, in and out of hospitals, on constant bronchial drugs, steroids, and antibiotics. A “failure to thrive” baby below the 5th percentile, he clung to life and bounced in and out of emergency rooms.

What she discovered is in this Video Masterclass. Detoxing twice a year is how she became a competitive athlete, and ditched 70 pounds and all medications and disease states. She was dying, and on half a dozen drugs, diagnosed with 21 diseases, at 25. Now she’s 50 and free of all symptoms, diagnoses, and prescriptions.

She believes that aging isn’t so much about years, as much as toxic body burden overwhelming the immune system.

And I won’t be a spoiler, but there’s a really amazing story about what happened to her severely ill “Failure to Thrive” baby, in one of the masterclass videos as well.

Watch this short video to help you think through whether a period devoted to resting, rebuilding, and repairing your elimination organs and immune system is right for you.

If you’re intrigued by the idea of decreasing your own toxicity, take a deeper look, in the free video masterclass. And ask questions of Robyn after watching any of the videos. Enjoy!

Why Should I Detox?

Did you know that many reasons why people are sick or end up with inflammation and disease in the body is through unchecked build-up of toxins in the body? There are many different toxins that enter our bodies from different sources and disrupt and interfere with our internal endocrine system.

 

The endocrine system consists of a set of glands (thyroid, gonads, adrenal and pituitary) and the hormones they produce (thyroxine, estrogen, testosterone and adrenaline), which help guide the development, growth, reproduction, and behaviour of animals, including humans. Hormones are signalling molecules, which travel through the bloodstream and elicit responses in other parts of the body.

 

Known endocrine disruptors in the human body include:

Heavy Metals like lead, nickel, tin, arsenic, cadium, antimony and uranium. Heavy metals cause oxidative damage to your cells and deplete essential minerals your body needs. One of the big one’s is mercury from dental fillings.

 

Household Products that contain plasticizers such as Bisphenol A found in plastic bottles. Endocrine disruptors may be found in many everyday products– including metal food cans, detergents, food, toys, and cosmetics.

 

Pharmaceuticals

Endocrine-disrupter compounds (EDC) are also found in pharmaceuticals. Protein Disulfide Isomerase (PDI) in the endoplasmic reticulum of all cells catalyses the rearrangement of disulfide bridges during folding of membrane and secreted proteins. As PDI is also known to bind various molecules including hormones such as estradiol and thyroxin, we considered the hypothesis that adverse effects of endocrine-disrupter compounds (EDC) could be mediated through their interaction with PDI leading to defects in membrane or secreted proteins.

 

The present data indicate that the tested EDCs could not only affect endocrine target cells through nuclear receptors as previously shown, but could also affect these and all other cells by positively or negatively affecting PDI activity. The substrate DiE-GSSG has been demonstrated to be a convenient substrate to measure PDI reductase activity in the presence of various potential EDCs. It will certainely be usefull for the screening of potential effect of all kinds of chemicals on PDI reductase activity. -Source: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0009507

 

Phytoestrogens

Another natural example of an endocrine disrupter is Phytoestrogens, which are naturally occurring substances in plants that have hormone-like activity. Examples of phytoestrogens are genistein and daidzein, which can be found in soy-derived products.

 

Emotional Toxins

Emotional toxicity from stressful situations can cause mental and physical impairment in the body, even witnessing a traumatic event on the television screen can cause emotional toxins in the body.

 

Electromagnetic Frequencies that mess with our body’s electromagnetic frequency and include cell /mobile phones, tablets, laptops, desktop computers, power lines and telecommunication towers.

 

Environmental Pesticides, Herbicides and Flame Retardants

More than 50 pesticide active ingredients have been identified as endocrine disruptors by the European Union and endocrine disruptor expert Theo Colborn, PhD. –Source: https://www.beyondpesticides.org/resources/pesticide-induced-diseases-database/endocrine-disruption

A huge number of chemicals have been identified as endocrine disruptors, among them several pesticides. Pesticides are used to kill unwanted organisms in crops, public areas, homes and gardens, and parasites in medicine.  -Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3138025/

 

PBCs

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are a broad group of chemicals that includes 209 aromatic chlorinated hydrocarbons used for products ranging from fluorescent light fixtures to coolant fluids inside parts of consumer electronics. Short-term exposure to large amounts of PCBs can cause liver damage; the effects of smaller concentrations can be more subtle, affecting the reproductive development of children of exposed mothers. -Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1480494/

 

The potential for human exposure to PCBs still exists, however, because they persist in air, soil, and water sediments for many years. Additionally, they are also found in older transformers, capacitors, fluorescent lighting fixtures, electrical devices, and appliances that are still in use.

 

Dioxin and Dioxin-like Compounds (DLCs)

Dioxins and dioxin-like compounds (DLCs) are compounds that are highly toxic environmental persistent organic pollutants (POPs).

 

DLCs are unintended by-products of combustion. Combustion sources can be of anthropogenic (e.g., waste incineration) or natural origin (e.g., forest fires). Industrial (e.g., paper and chemical manufacturing) and biological processes also contribute to DLC production, although in smaller quantities.

 

Nutritional supplementation is a powerful and effective way to detox your system but before you rush out and buy different detox vitamins, minerals and herbs, you need to know the different grades of nutritional supplements available in the marketplace: Pharmaceutical Grade, Medical Grade, Cosmetic or Nutritional Grade.

 

Pharmaceutical Grade is the highest quality grade of vitamins and supplements meaning the purity; dissolution and absorption meet the highest regulatory standard verified by an independent party. Pharmaceutical grade vitamins and nutrients may be available without a prescription, but they are typically sold by licensed health care professionals.

 

Medical Grade vitamins and nutrients are also high-grade supplements but may not meet all the standards of pharmaceutical grade supplements. Prenatal vitamins normally fall into this category.

 

Cosmetic or Nutritional Grade supplements are typically sold in health food stores, chemists and, readily available on supermarket shelves. These supplements may not always be tested for absorption, dissolution or purity. Additionally, these supplements do not always have the same concentration of active ingredients as what is listed on the label.

 

You may or may not be aware that 98% of supplements readily available are of cosmetic grade… not even close to pharmaceutical grade.

 

One line of powerful and very effective nutritional supplements is the Le-vel brand THRIVE line here https://brainspahealth.le-vel.com  The reason people are seeing amazing results when using THRIVE nutritional supplements, and why they cost a little more, is because they are pharmaceutical-grade, and only the highest quality nutritional ingredients are sourced.
