**************TOXICITY AND OBESITY*******************
The obesity causes-genetics,environment, lifestyle. It is being seen more and more that certain toxins are a disruption of key mechicanisms in weight management.
The key biological systems involved are neuro-endocrine-immune systems the mitochondrial energetics and redox status.
Foreign molecules are causing obesity, this includes medications like:
psychotropics in particular, monoamine oxidase[MAO} inhibitors, Lithium, valprate,
Mirtazapine,clozapine,olanzapine, some selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors [SSRIs] such as Fluoxetine, seraline, and paroxetine actually promote weight gain through various mechanisms.
We spend so much money to develop the magic pill to cause weight gain, but are defeating the purpose, because if medications cause weight gain then most certainly envirnmental toxins will do the same.
Why? Because they interfer with metabolism, overload hepatic function [detoxification is made more difficult], and disrupt central weight-control systems [already in the body are certain triggers to keep our weight balanced], they promote insulin resistance, alter circadian-rhythms, increase inflamation, interfere with thyrid function, damage the mitochndria; All of which causes weight gain.
We live in a virtual chemical soup of toxins, our exposure comes through our food supply, our air, the VOC gasses in the homes and offices that surround our bodies every day. In fact Eighty thousand new chemicals have been introduced since the year 1900. Most of these have never been tested for their cumulative effects on living tissue.
We can test for these various toxins but unfortunately they are quickly moved by the body to storage sites like inside of fat cells or in our muscles and bones, or organs; so any test we do on the blood and urine will underestimate the amount of toxins we have circulating and purcolating in our bodies at any given time. The body does this storing to preserve itself. If all those poisons were running around loose in our bodies it would kill us. Now you see why our bodies hang onto the fat it has accumulated, because releasing the fats releases the poisons.
The body is also stressed by Internal toxins, those that arise from bacteria and yeasts in the gut: and leading to increased inflamation and oxidation; including endotoxins, toxic amines, toxic bile, various carcinogenic [it means it produces the atmosphere needed for cancer to begin] substances like putrescine and cadaverine.
EWE! What are they?
putrescine-[from Wikpedia]related to cadaverine; both are produced by the breakdown of amino acids in living and dead organisms. The two compounds are largely responsible for the foul odor of putrefying flesh, but also contribute to the odor of such processes as bad breath and bacterial vaginosis.
All of this is what your body manufacturers in response to things like Candidiasis.
cadaverine-[also from Wikipedia] is a foul-smelling molecule produced by protein hydrolysis during putrefaction of animal tissue. It is responsible for the smell of urine and semin.
WHAT CAN WE DO TO DETOX?
>Drink lots of pure water, eat more fiber. This floods and pushes out the toxic stuff and we get rid of it.
>eat garlic every day. It purifies.
>eat more beans, fruits and nuts, the same effect as the first two.
>probiotics can help, even fermented foods, sauerkraut, kefir, Kombucho tea. Make our bowels more healty to get rid of toxins from Candidiasis etc.
>citrus peel, caraway and dill oil contain limonene a toxin-fighter
>eat lots of fresh whole vegetables, preferably locally grown and non-GM.
>Sweat a lot, it rids the body of toxins. Exercise and saunas work well for this.
>eat cruciferous veggies day, brocolli, cauliflower, etc. getting healthy really helps
>juice from celery, carrots, cilantro,beets, parsley, ginger
>take detox teas with burdock root, dandilon root,ginger, licorice, sasparilla, cardomom seed, cinnamon bark and other herbs
>detox the Liver every few months.
>x-rays, microwaves, dust and allergans, any aluminum, cigarette smoke, automobile exhaust.
>Air out your dry cleaning before wearing
>have houseplants to clean your air
>filter your air with HEPA filters
>for reduced Glutathine levels
>hidden infections [Lyme, H.Pylori, etc.]
>heavy metals [hair analysis]
>mold and spore antibodies

~~~Jokes And inspirations~~~
A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in California when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him.
The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the cowboy, 'If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, Will you give me a calf?'
Bud looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, 'Sure, Why not?'
The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer,connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.
The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg , Germany .
Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses a MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response.
Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer and finally turns to the cowboy and says, 'You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.'
'That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves,' says Bud.
He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on amused as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.
Then the Bud says to the young man, 'Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?'
The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, 'Okay, why not?'
'You're a Congressman for the U.S. Government', says Bud.
'Wow! That's correct,' says the yuppie, 'but how did you guess that?'
'No guessing required.' answered the cowboy. 'You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew,to a question I never asked. You tried to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about cows...this is a
herd of sheep. . . .
Now give me back my dog.

Three men, an editor, a photographer, and a journalist are covering a political convention in Miami. They decide to walk up and down the beach during their lunch hour. Halfway up the beach, they stumbled upon a lamp. As they rub the lamp a genie appears and says "Normally I would grant you three wishes, but since there are three of you, I will grant you each one wish."
The photographer went first. "I would like to spend the rest of my life living in a huge house in St. Thomas with no money worries." The genie granted him his wish and sent him on off to St. Thomas.
The journalist went next. "I would like to spend the rest of my life living on a huge yacht cruising the Mediterranean with no money worries." The genie granted him his wish and sent him off to the Mediterranean.
Last, but not least, it was the editor's turn. "And what would your wish be?" asked the genie.
"I want them both back after lunch" replied the editor, "The deadline for tomorrow's newspaper is in about ten
Employer to applicant: "In this job we need someone who is responsible."
Applicant: "I'm the one you want. On my last job, every time anything went wrong, they said I was responsible."
Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D -Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.
This is how it manifests:
I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide it needs washing.
As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mail box earlier.
I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full.
So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first.
But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.
I take my check book off the table, and see that there is only one check left.
My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke I'd been drinking.
I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.
The Coke is getting warm, and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.
As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need water.
I put the Coke on the counter and discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning.
I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.
I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.
I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I'll be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.
I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.
So, I set the remote back on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.
Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.
At the end of the day:
the car isn't washed
the bills aren't paid
there is a warm can of Coke still sitting on the counter
the flowers don't have enough water,
there is still only 1 check in my check book,
I can't find the remote,
I can't find my glasses,
and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.
Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all damn day, and I'm really tired.
I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.
Do me a favor. Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember who the heck I've sent it to.
Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!
My wish for you for today is that you will be blessed with all the multi-tasking skills you need, that you are constantly shadowed by Grace and Mercy, Health will be your reputation, and wealth will fill your pockets.
