Doctors everywhere are warning patients NOT to eat Genetically Modified foods. This could be the number one issue right now. Engineered bacteria are in corn, soy, apples and potatoes NOW. They have been allowed by the FDA even though NO TESTING has shown that they are safe. All testing done in Europe shows that they are terribly dangerous, but research is not allowed in America because the government is in bed with the big chemical companies. And those companies will lose a lot of market share if they don't get to push these foods on us. These same foods are causing terrible allegies in children, leaky gut and a host of related digeestive issues, and much more. Buy foods that are marked NON-GMO project.

Here's a great article about detoxing your body. It describes some symptoms that you might experience that indicate you need to detox. The problem with that is that you might not HAVE any symptoms - but if you live in America you NEED to detox. Period.

When you start detoxing your body,Go slowly at first so that you don't make yourself sick.

What one person eats to be healthy may be different than what another needs. The best cancer treatment centers, like that of Dr. N. Gonzalez in New York, allow for multiple different diet types. That makes sense when you think that, for example, a young man who is physically active would need a different diet than an older man who is more sedentary. So you need to work out what is best for you, to lose weight if you need to, to boost energy, etc. If you have access to a Naturopath, that is a great resource for helping you find a nutritional plan that suits your body and temperament.

There are many detox programs and guides out there. After looking around for quite a while, I decided to try this one by Dan McDonald. His videos are fun to watch! Watch some of his videos on youtube, and decide if his course is for you. The Detox Mastery program provides three levels of detox, so you don't have to give up all solid food the first time around. You can take the time to get used to juicing and having all that goodness going through you.
The lymphatic system is a very important part of the immune system. There are many toxic challenges every day, and you want the lymphatic system to be as healthy as possible.
