Therapies › Detoxification

Other therapies  

A small Canadian study was published last year. The report, titled "Toxic Nation: A Report on Pollution in Canadians," is the first to try and determine how many manmade chemicals are ending up in average citizens.

Tests were done on 11 volunteers, including Mr. Bateman, for 88 chemicals believed to be carcinogenic, to disrupt reproduction and hormonal function and interfere with fetal development. Researchers found that, on average, participants had a cocktail of 44 in their bodies.

While the health effects of these chemicals are not clear, what is clear is that Canadians would be better off without the exposure. The fact is that you and I have hundreds of chemicals in the body, we are part of a huge uncontrolled experiment, the outcome of which is entirely unpredictable.

These chemicals include heavy metals; PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls used in electrical transformers and now banned); PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers used as fire retardants); PFOs (perfluorinated chemicals used in stain repellants, non-stick cookware and food packaging), pesticides and insecticides.

A study published in the Journal of Advancement in Medicine by Walter Blummer MD has shown that mortality from cancer was reduced 90% during an 18-year follow-up of 59 patients treated with Calcium-EDTA. Only one of 59 treated patients (1.7%) died of cancer while 30 of 172 non treated control subjects (17.6%) died of cancer. Death from artherosclerosis was also reduced. Edta is well recognized as a therapy for lead toxicity. EDTA also removes other toxic heavy metals and nutritional elements such as iron which promote cancer by catalyzing free radical pathology.

This study shows how powerful detoxification can be. Just the removal of heavy metals seems to reduce not only the incidence of cancer but also other chronic diseases.

Therapies that are used for detoxification include:

A combination of therapies will be individually determined based on family history, occupation, medical history and current lifestyle.

"Canadians a toxic lot: study"

World-renowned wildlife artist Robert Bateman has used his fame and fortune to promote environmental protection. But now he has gone one step further, giving literally of his blood-blood that was tested for a host of contaminants as part of a study. The results, to be released in a report today, show that despite his clean-living ways, Mr. Bateman's body is a repository for 48 different toxic substances...

"Our Preferred Poison: a little mercury is all that humans need to do away with themselves quietly, slowly, and surely"

Often referred to as quicksilver, mercury is the only common metal that is liquid at room temperature. Alchemists, including the young Sir Isaac Newton, believed it was the source of gold. In the modern era, it became a common ingredient of paints, diuretics, pesticides, batteries, fluorescent lightbulbs, skin creams, antifungal agents, vaccines for children, and of course, thermometers. There is probably some in your mouth right now: So-called silver dental fillings are half mercury...
