Toxic Overload - It Can Kill You

On this eve of Easter I am thankful that my mother is still with us, as it was just over a week ago that we feared we might lose her to a sepesis infection caused by a blocked bile duct. The stone blocking her duct is still causing issue and toxins are being drained by catheter until the infection is gone and surgery can be done. It was not her time and God performed a miracle - bringing her body back through answered prayer and meds that could bring her blood pressure back up towards life. 
How does one get to such a point that the body becomes toxic? I did a lot of reading on those trips to the hospital.  I am not sure if pancreatitis was actually part of my mother's diagnosis, but it had been mentioned, and I read up on that as well as other disease of the lower GI tract.
One of my most recent posts provided insight in to how what we consume today, or even ten years ago, affects our health a few years, or even 40 years, down the line.  Toxins store up in our bodies, and for a number of bio-logical reasons, are not excreted. If you would like specifics, I encourage a book titled "Health & Nutrition Secrets That Can Save Your Life - Harness Your Body's Natural Healing Powers" by Russell L. Blaylock, M.D.  If you are looking for a "light read" this book is NOT it.  It is more of a textbook - there are very few illustrations, pages are filled with 10 point font type. It is a book that requires an alert mind, or one with a purpose - for me, it was to find out what caused my mother's dire situation.
While reading Blaylocks's book, chapters dealing specifically with the pancreas and toxicity - I was pleased to read  that certain flavonoids, ellagic acid and such found the in the AB Anti Oxidant & Immunity Booster are specifically beneficial to pancreatic healing. Amen for that!  I had gone to the hospital armed with AB Anti-oxidant & Immunity Booster, a 3 oz. powerhshot, 40 calories that supplies nutrients equivalent to 5000 calories of vegetables and fruit. God's natural medicine cabinet is always number one in my book of healing treatment. My mother had had such a miraculous turn around overnight that I was able to give her 3 power shots, or 15,000 calories of anti-oxidants to help fight the infection, in one day.  I knew God would have His hand in removing the infection from her body and  use the booster drinks as His tool.
My mother is on the mend, infection remains and surgery awaits, but lets look at...

The Cause of Pancreatic Disease
Dr. Russell Blaylock states diseases of the lower GI are all directly related to diet.  Pancreatic cancer is increasing in the United States by leaps and bounds in the past 10, 20 years and Blaylock attributes much of this to processed meats. Nitrates, nitrites are heavily used to preserve hotdogs, sausages and brats, BACON, deli meats, and well.... processed foods period are laden with chemicals. Pancreatic cancer is one cancer that Blaylock states can be avoided.
Hey bacon lovers....a tip from Blaylock, himself a bacon lover, rinse your bacon off in lukewarm water and it will help remove the nitrates and nitrate preservatives; pat dry before frying.
From other publications I have also learned that the pancreas is your "overflow" system. The liver is the filter for toxins consumed, but when we give the liver more than it can handle, or it is not detoxified (think of this as putting in a new, clean filter as you would for your furnace twice a year) - the excess toxins find their way to the pancreas.  This is why it is so important to detoxify your body several times a year. Not to be confused with  a colon cleanse, a body detoxification supports all major organs of the body. Detoxification systems are not the same. I am not an advocate of fasting for detoxification.  A healthy detox should include CLEAN eating so your body has fuel for energy, as one can actually  become fatigued when the body is in process of shedding toxins.
A key ingredient that many detoxification solutions are missing is chlorella. A sea algae based cleanse, per Dr. Joe Mercola, chlorella is the only ingredient that can help flush mercury from the body. Mercury is consumed by most of us, without realizing it. Mercury is found in many OTC and prescription drug medications. Vaccinations also inject mercury into our body. AND unbeknownst to most of us, including myself until a few years ago, the silver amalgam fillings from the dentist contain mercury. Each time I chew, I am releasing mercury into my system. I don't have the money to have them removed and replaced with ceramic fillings, and for now, must keep in mind the importance of detoxing every 3 or 4 months. Fortunately, the 7 day body cleanse I use does contain chlorella to help eliminate mercury from the body.
Medications add toxicity to your body. Being of a synthetic nature, the body cannot excrete all traces of medicine. Synthetic substances, whether it be artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors or medications - build up. The liver cannot filter an overload of these substances. If you drink diet soda or energy drinks with artificial ingredients, and take medications in addition - it's a double whammy against your liver. Artificial ingredients, per my chiropractor, often manifest as kidney or gall stones. When you have no gall bladder, such as my mother whose gall bladder was removed a number of years ago, you can still get a gall stone. Problem is, there is no gall bladder to contain it.  For my mother, a large stone parking itself on top her bile duct caused a life threatening situation. 

Getting Past A Toxic GI System
Vegetables. And lots of them!  Eating raw, blenderized vegetables is the best way to restore a healthy GI tract. Vegetables high in curcumin, quercetin and hesperadin are highly desirable to restore and detoxify the pancreatic system. Top choices should include broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts. While recovering from a serious bacterial infection meats should be avoided, especially processed.
Cabbage is a top choice to help fight bacterial infections, and carrots make for a great blood cleanser. Lemons are known for having antibiotic and anti bacterial properties.
As I have said in previous posts, food is either fuel or poison.  Live food provides energy and is fuel for the body, with vegetables being the greatest fuel you can consume for your body.  If you are in need of more energy - eat in living color, and it can detoxify and change your life!

To your health,
