The lazy Detox • Synthetic Vitamins, Fortified, and experimental isolates. • There you have it, Isolated nutrients or synthetic nutrients are not natural, in that they are never found by themselves in nature. They are made in a lab not in dirt. They are usually easy to find because they have an un-humanly wrong or high MG dose. Where does vitamin c pills start? 500 mg on up, and what can you get in an average great good diet? Maybe 50 mg. Synthetic nutrients act like xenobiotics (foreign substances) and may just tax the kidneys and urinary system to get rid of it, or may deplete the co-enzymes, minerals, and other vitamins that were supposed to be with it in the first place. http://www.wholefoodforhealth.com/synthetic%20and%20whole%20food.htm
The lazy Detox • Sugar the metabolic NITROUS fuel • Michael Jacobson, executive director of CSPI, said today at a Washington press conference, "Sugar consumption has been going through the roof. It has increased by 28 percent since 1983, fueling soaring obesity rates and other health problems. It's vital that the FDA require labels that would enable consumers to monitor—and reduce—their sugar intake." • Marion Nestle, chair of the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies at New York University, said, "Because sugary foods often replace more healthful foods, diets high in sugar are almost certainly contributing to osteoporosis, cancer, and heart disease. It's high time that the food label informed consumers of a food's contribution to a recommended limit for added sugars." Nestle was managing editor of the 1988 Surgeon General's Report on Diet and Health.
Many individual foods provide large fractions of the USDA's recommended sugar limits. For instance, a typical cup of fruit yogurt provides 70 percent of a day's worth of added sugar; a cup of regular ice cream provides 60 percent, a 12-ounce Pepsi provides 103 percent, a Hostess Lemon Fruit Pie provides 115 percent, a serving of Kellogg's Marshmallow Blasted Froot Loops provides 40 percent, and a quarter-cup of pancake syrup provides 103 percent. • While restaurant foods are not required to provide nutrition labeling, CSPI found that a Cinnabon provides 123 percent of USDA's recommended target, a large McDonald's Shake 120 percent, a large Mr. Misty Slush at Dairy Queen 280 percent, and Burger King's Cini-minis with icing 95 percent. One of the biggest problems with high-sugar foods is that they replace more healthful foods. According to USDA data, people who eat diets high in sugar get less calcium, fiber, folate, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium, iron, and other nutrients. They also consume fewer fruits and vegetables.
The Lazy Detox • According to new U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) data, sugar consumption in 1999 was 158 pounds per person.

The Liver • Emotions are not random. When you watched as someone exploded with remarkable intensity, over a slight thing, there was a physical factor involved making it worse, your liver.The Chinese noted 4000 years ago, that emotions go as your liver goes. When the liver is hot, so are your emotions. When the liver is unstressed and cool, you are calm and relaxed. Altered or hot emotions, is the liver’s attempt to alert you that it needs help.Think of your liver as an oven. If it is cool, your emotions are even and regular. The hotter the liver gets, the more intense your emotions become. Dyes, preservatives, chemical additives, resins etc., are all explosive fuel for your liver. Enough contact with them will cause your liver to heat. That kind of fuel can keep your liver red hot for hours or days.

These friends help to synthesize vitamins and produce neuropeptides responsible for emotions and almost everything.

The Lungs • "Every day people spend billions on heart and lung related issues"Your Heart, Lungs, Kidneys and Liver are a self regulating quartet. They should run flawlessly for a lifetime. • “The heart is the King of the organs.The lungs are the Prime Minister.The lungs assist the king to circulate theblood using heart energy”— The Shan Ching (circa 250 BC)
The Lungs • At rest you will inhale and exhale between 14 to 16 times per minute. • During exercise your breaths can increase to 60 times per minute. • Each breath moves approximately 350 ml of oxygen into the lungs. • The lungs are the only organ in the body that can float on water.
The Lungs • The # 1 toxin that your body removes is…carbon dioxide. Nitrogen and other gases too. • Every cell goes through its metabolism and releases gases into the blood that get detoxed. • Urine or urea cycle detoxes pneumonia, and arginine, nitrogen etc, but this happens first by the lungs blowing off its gasses, allowing water and urine to be detoxed by the kidneys.

The Kidneys • What Do Your Kidneys Do? The body is a factory. Your two bean shaped organs (kidneys) track the body’s fluid usage, levels, pressure & location. Fluid is used to transport waste from the body’s organs, to the kidneys for processing or treatment then, excretion as urine.Your body also has to rid itself of gases, acids, oils, resins and sludge. Some of the compounds processed by the kidneys include, lactic acid, uric acid, various proteins, sugars, salts, excess calcium, potassium and ketones. When these products / by products cannot be fully flushed from the body, the body is forced to uncomfortably store them. Healthy kidneys will utilize between 64 to 128 ounces of fluid a day cleansing your system. Due to their importance in keeping us healthy, the Chinese call the kidneys “The Master Organ.” Since all of our organs run on fluid, the kidneys regulate every organ of our body.
The Kidneys • Your Kidneys: The Master Organ Of Life • "The state of our internal organs are represented on the face" - Yellow King of China's physician, circa 2670 B.C. • Fact: When an area of the face is very pronounced or calling attention to itself, it indicates a weakness or predisposition to weakness of the associated organ. • The half moon of darkness, redness, puffiness or pronounced wrinkling under each eye indicates the state of your kidneys. Your right half moon represents your right kidney and the left is the left kidney.
The Kidneys • Location of Your Kidneys The kidneys are: • Two bean-shaped organs, one on each side of the backbone. • Represent about 0.5% of the total weight of the body. • 20–25% of your body’s total blood supply can be found in the kidney at all times. • Cleanses the body’s entire blood supply about 300 times a day. • Continuously regulates the chemical composition of the blood within narrow limits (diet permitting).
