5 HOW TOXIC ARE WE? Research shows that environmental pollutants are so ubiquitous that there's no place on earth to escape them, not even polar ice caps. Even the breast milk of nursing Arctic women has been found to be dangerously high in, for starters, PCBs and mercury (Muckle, Persky, Abe, Grandjean, Weisglas-Kuperus) IF YOU LIVE ON PLANET EARTH YOU SHOULD DETOX YOUR BODY!

15 DETOX BENEFITS OF EXERCISE As you exercise, the blood circulates throughout the body, bringing nutrients to all the organs and muscles. Exercise accelerates the detoxification process. As you exercise, the blood circulates throughout the body, bringing nutrients to all the organs and muscles. Exercise also helps lymph fluids circulate the body, which removes toxins and other harmful materials. When exercising you breathe deeply and take in more oxygen, which helps all the cells to perform their jobs, including removing toxins. The enhanced oxygen and waste removal alkalizes and rejuvenates your cells, supporting our body in all aspects of detoxification. As you do aerobic exercise you build up a sweat and toxins are released through the pores of the skin. This allows acids and other wastes to be flushed through our skin and reduces the load on our kidneys. Exercising also helps you to lose weight by reducing the amount of fatty tissues in the body. As the fatty tissues grow smaller the toxins stored in fat are released into the body. These toxins must be removed. Supportive detox programs & cleansing foods help to get rid of these toxins in your body.

16 Any type of exercise that gets your whole body moving and gets your body fluids circulating at an increased rate will benefit you. Most forms of exercise increase your breathing, thus providing a form of oxygen therapy. Cardiovascular exercises help by increasing your body temperature over a sustained period, making you sweat out toxins. Core muscle exercises help massage and stimulate your internal organs. Stomach crunches help massage the colon and help strengthen the muscles that help the colon move waste, helping you cleanse your colon. Deep breathing causes the lymph to shoot through the capillaries like a geyser. The key word here is 'deep.' Deep breathing is the kind that best stimulates lymph flow. Breathing deeply helps eliminate poisons from the cells, and also enhances immunity, since the lymphatic system is actually part of the immune system. Your exercise should not be a source of stress, as stress can cause toxic buildup in our systems. Intense resistance training should be avoided on low calorie/low carb days. WHAT TYPE OF EXERCISE SHOULD YOU DO TO DETOX YOUR BODY?

17 COULD TOXICITY BE AFFECTING YOUR HEALTH & PERFORMANCE? 1. Conclusive evidence of TOXINS stored in everyone’s body. 2. Fat Loss is INHIBITED by Toxicity. CLEANSING is not only necessary to remove Stubborn Fat stores, but weight loss without cleansing poses a Health Risk. LEAN INDIVIDUALS may be at an even greater risk. 3. TOXINS have been linked to over 60 Degenerative Diseases. Modern Day Ailments correspond with common symptoms of low-level Endogenous Toxicity. 4. TOXINS place additional stress on body systems, interfering with optimal organ functions and limiting peak performance. CLEANSING enhances athletic performance by reducing stress and rebalancing body systems.

Charles Poliquin on Detoxification Taking a well designed helps out the overall process, as many nutrients act as and provide. Taking a well designed multivitamin/mineral helps out the overall process, as many nutrients act as intermediaries in detoxification of hormones and provide building blocks for all neuro-transmitters. You need before you do any kind of detoxification program. You need rich nutrient reserves before you do any kind of detoxification program. Most people don't have enough nutrients in their bodies, so as they detoxify they get very toxic! People today get more toxic because of the detox and it's easy to make yourself sick.

25 HOW FASTING IMPROVES YOUR HEALTH (Men’s Health) Mitochondria inside your body's cells use carbohydrates to make cell fuel. The molecular by-product: free radicals that damage DNA, impair cellular function, and promote cancer. Here's how fasting may help: 1. Fewer free radicals: during a fast, the, sensing a lack of food, become. Like a cleaner-burning fire, they start producing, says Eric Ravussin, Ph.D., a clinical investigator at Pennington Biomedical Research Center. 2. More antioxidants: The diminishing number of free radicals is met by an. These enzymes "search and destroy free radicals," says Mark Mattson, Ph.D., a neuroscientist at the National Institutes of Health. 3. Stronger cells: This cleaner calorie-burning also produces a says Ravussin, adding that 1. Fewer free radicals: during a fast, the mitochondria, sensing a lack of food, become more efficient. Like a cleaner-burning fire, they start producing fewer free radicals per calorie burned, says Eric Ravussin, Ph.D., a clinical investigator at Pennington Biomedical Research Center. 2. More antioxidants: The diminishing number of free radicals is met by an increase in antioxidant production within your cells. These enzymes "search and destroy free radicals," says Mark Mattson, Ph.D., a neuroscientist at the National Institutes of Health. 3. Stronger cells: This cleaner calorie-burning also produces a surge in beneficial hormones. "Exercise during a fast and the increase is even greater," says Ravussin, adding that the hormones prepare cells for worse stresses. "They'll better resist tumors and rebound faster from a heart attack."

29 We Have an Epidemic of ENVIRONMENTAL TOXICITY “Immunotoxicity: asthma, allergies, cancers, and chronic viral infections. Neurological toxicity: cognition, mood, and chronic neurological illnesses. Endocrine toxicity: reproduction, menses, libido, metabolism, stress- handling ability, glucose regulation.” (Altern Med Rev 2000; 5(1):52-63) “Immunotoxicity: asthma, allergies, cancers, and chronic viral infections. Neurological toxicity: cognition, mood, and chronic neurological illnesses. Endocrine toxicity: reproduction, menses, libido, metabolism, stress- handling ability, glucose regulation.” (Altern Med Rev 2000; 5(1):52-63) “Chemicals have replaced bacteria and viruses as the main threat to health. The diseases we are beginning to see as the major causes of death in the latter part of (the 1900's) and into the 21st century are diseases of chemical origin.” Dr. Dick Irwin, Toxicologist, Texas A&M University

Chronic exposure to low levels of chemicals through processed foods, water and fertilizers is responsible for the current epidemics of these diseases and the increasing mortality rates associated with them. The increase in exposure plays a critical role in the cause, development and effects of the pandemic of these insulin-resistant diseases. Nitrosamines basically become highly reactive at the cellular level, which then alters gene expression and causes DNA damage. More than 90 percent of these compounds that have been tested have been determined to be carcinogenic in various organs. They are found in many food products, including fried bacon, cured meats and cheese products as well as beer and water. Exposure also occurs through manufacturing and processing of rubber and latex products, as well as fertilizers, pesticides and cosmetics. These overall trends are NOT due to genetics or an aging population. However, the strikingly higher and climbing mortality rates in older age brackets suggest that aging and/or longer durations of exposure have greater impacts on progression and severity of these diseases. While nitrogen-containing fertilizer consumption increased by 230% between 1955 and 2005, its usage doubled between 1960 and 1980, which just precedes the insulin-resistant epidemics the researchers found. They also found that sales from the fast food chain and the meat processing company increased more than 8-fold from 1970 to 2005, and grain consumption increased 5-fold.

32 The primary cause of muscle aging is damage to the muscle’s DNA. TRUE

33 Muscle aging is caused by cumulative damage to muscle DNA, which is required to replicate muscle cells. CAUSE: Long-term, out of control oxidation & toxicity With age, the built-in antioxidant & detoxification systems of the body begin to falter. SOLUTION: Exercise & proper nutrition promotes the body’s built-in antioxidation & detoxification systems. Short, K.R., et al. (2005). Decline in skeletal muscle mitochondria function with aging in humans. Proced Nat Acd Sci. 102(15):

Although the actual # of fat cells remains constant, old fat cells are replaced by new ones… “Healthy vs. Unhealthy Fat Cells”

37 HOW TOXINS AFFECT WEIGHT MANAGEMENT Fat stored to protect from impurities Impurities are released so body sheds fat Better overall health with less fat and more lean muscle Cleansing of Impurities Traditional Weight Loss Smaller body means increased percentage of impurities Body senses increased level of impurities and goes into emergency fat production ­ REBOUND! Fat stored to protect from impurities The Set-Point Theory of Weight Control

38 The Human Species will not reject its environment; it will die trying to achieve homeostasis through adaptation.

39 A weight loss of more than 2lbs per week is not only unhealthy, causing a loss of muscle and water, but will result in rebound. FALSE

40 FACT: Losing through can be and result in. FACT: Losing more than 2lbs per week through diet and exercise alone can be unhealthy and result in rebound weight gain. TRUTH: Rapid and safe fat loss is possible and a with because it is. It the body. The body is fed all the nutrients it needs to maintain proper biochemical balances. While toxins are being removed from the body the excess fat stores are released along with it.. This helps to retain and protect lean muscle. TRUTH: Rapid and safe fat loss is possible complementing exercise and a healthy diet with nutritional cleansing because it is NOT A DIET. It does not starve the body. The body is fed all the nutrients it needs to maintain proper biochemical balances. While toxins are being removed from the body the excess fat stores are released along with it. The fat that is released provides the body with additional energy through a process called ketosis. This helps to retain and protect lean muscle. WHY: To lose more than 2lbs per week through diet and exercise alone requires depriving the body of sufficient calories and essential nutrients; muscle is lost. HOW CAN RAPID WEIGHT LOSS BE SAFE?

41 What about Lean People or “Toxic Recirculation”? ATHLETES… Breath More, Drink More, and Eat More INCREASED METABOLIC DEMANDS equals GREATER STRESS & GREATER WASTE BY-PRODUCTS Weight Loss without Cleansing, Yo-Yo Dieting, Stress, Exercise, Illness TOXIC RECIRCULATION = TOXIC RECIRCULATION Weight Loss without Cleansing, Yo-Yo Dieting, Stress, Exercise, Illness TOXIC RECIRCULATION = TOXIC RECIRCULATION

43 HOW CLEANSING HELPS BURN FAT & BUILD MUSCLE …EVEN AS WE SLEEP! The effect of a 72-h fast on plasma levels of pituitary, adrenal, thyroid, pancreatic and gastrointestinal hormones in healthy men and women (Journal of Endocrinology, 1989; Vol 120, Issue 2, ) (European Journal of Endocrinology, 2002;Vol 146, Issue 2, ) Ghrelin drives GH secretion during fasting in man (European Journal of Endocrinology, 2002;Vol 146, Issue 2, ) Serum GH concentrations are increased in fasted human subjects. Two days of fasting induced a 5-fold increase in the 24-h endogenous GH production rate. Growth Hormone: Fasting triggers the “growth hormone response” which prevents muscle loss while you fast. The body switches to repair /growth mode to keep you alive. Growth Hormone: helps burn fat, build muscle. Fasting triggers the “growth hormone response” which prevents muscle loss while you fast.
