Why Detox? Do I Need to Detox?

Why Detox?

Do you dust your house or wash your car? If you don’t, both get quite a build-up of dirt, and toxic chemical residue, don’t they? Well, it’s the same with the human body. Our foods and living environments are becoming more and more polluted with time, and if we don’t regularly detox our bodies from the inside out, the disease has a perfect environment in which to grow.

Humans are progressively becoming more misinformed about the fundamentals of eating, and more human beings are becoming diseased as the result. Now, we are adding the threat of chemical warfare and nuclear fallout to this state of affairs. Polluted foods, polluted water, polluted air, and polluted lives. So, where do we go from here? We detox our bodies the New Leaf way. Visit our Detox program page for our complete programs.

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Epilepsy
  • Emphysema
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Heart disease

  • Thyroid problems

It’s important to remember that the human body has not “kept up” with modern technology. Human beings certainly shouldn’t eat technology! But that is happening today as a result of the onslaught of manufactured foods, artificial sweeteners, and the threat of chemical warfare. This very second, your physical body id without explanation functioning internally exactly the way human bodies functioned 10,000 years ago. Because our bodies today are the same as in the past, it is critical to eat the same as in years past centuries past. But, human beings are adopting one of the most unnatural lifestyles known to mankind. Cancer rates and cardiovascular disease in the United States are among the highest in the world, and association with medical doctors represents the third leading cause of death in the United States through unnecessary surgeries, medication errors in hospitals, infections in hospitals, and non-errors, negative effects of drugs.

“As time marches forward, too much information is forgotten”

There are over 70,000 chemicals used in commercial production in the United States today. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified 65,000 of them as potentially hazardous to human health. Over 6,000 new chemicals are tested every week, and more than 14,000 of these chemicals have been approved for and are found in the public food supply. Over 700 chemicals are added to public drinking water, and more than 10,000 other compounds are found in public foods for food processing and storage purposes.

Finding nutritional answers to illness is an art passed down from generation to generation. And, the causes of modern diseases are harder to identify today than ever before. The various sources of high-tech diseases have become lost in today’s technological shuffle.

As time marches forward, too much information is forgotten.

Good nutrition is basic and simple. Proper nutrition is supposed to be uncomplicated. Fat-free this, sugar-free that, food exchanges, food substitutes, processing, packaging, biological warfare, microorganisms, radiation…Stop right here! Nature did not intend for humans to eat complex laboratory concoctions, heavy metals, gunfire, or polluted food and water as nourishment. The human body was created to be fueled by basic whole foods rich in vitamins and minerals, fibres, enzymes, amino acids, and proteins providing everything human beings need to maintain an energetic healthy life. It’s time to get back to the basics of eating and to clean up the pollution boxing all living beings into a futile corner.

In the past, natural healers were known as the wise men, the spiritual leader, the enlightened ones, and seers. They knew how to heal the body and soul. Many cultures still refer to natural healers as the prophets, shamans, and the inventors. In today’s modern times, natural healers require degrees in chemistry, hazardous waste and emergency response, environmental science and toxicology in order to understand how to restore natural health!

Polluted Foods

The rapid increase of chemicals in our environment, food and medicine has greatly challenged the human body’s ability to rid itself of toxins.
