Do you wake up each morning full of vitality and energy, with a feeling of ease at the beginning of a new day? If this sounds unfamiliar, your body may be harboring toxins. Toxins pervade the environment. They are in the food you eat, in the water you drink, in the air you breathe... among many other sources. Increased toxin levels are due to pollution of the environment, chemical detergents in households, and artificial additives in the food supply. The human body is not capable of breaking down or expelling toxins without proper care. As a result, the number of people suffering from allergies or hypersensitivity to various substances is rising. Besides the harmful effects to the body, the mind can suffer too. A fast-paced society causes an increase in tension, stress, and mental exhaustion... All this leads to a state of well-being that is greatly lacking in the vitality it could have under optimal conditions. Unhealthy eating habits only contribute to the situation. When one overeats or chooses a bad combination of foods, part of the food remains undigested. This triggers putrefactive decomposition in the intestines, accompanied by the production of toxins: the poisonous substances which can be the originators of diseases. To lose the extra pounds dieters often try to "starve themselves" with a regimen that is unbalanced and poor in nutrition. These bodily abuses cause premature aging and a lack of energy and zest for life. Surely everyone wants a high quality of life regardless of age and gender. But can you make this a reality? Just imagine if, for the most part, you were able to control your own state of being! Few people realize how important healthy eating coupled with regular detoxification -- cleansing of the body - really is. Most have never tried to rid their bodies of accumulated poisons, parasites, and waste. In fact, it has been scientifically proven that the large intestine of an adult contains from three to five, and in some cases up to 22 pounds of unmetabolized food sediment. Is this because we are not ready to take responsibility for our best possible health? The purpose of this book is to advise those who want to secure their health. It will guide you on how to heal your body, cleanse it of sediments, mucus, poisons, parasites and excess weight naturally without any harm or stress. One¿s quality of physical and mental activity not only depends on how regularly one cares for the outside of his or her body, but also for the inside.
