Dr. Daniel David (DD) Palmer, the discoverer of chiropractic (1895), said that dis-ease (body malfunction) was caused by toxins, thoughts and trauma – the three T’s. Modern science is just catching up to his insights; he was far ahead of his time.
Understanding the 3 T’s
Understanding the three T’s will help you understand the causes of disease, how to prevent disease and, if you are suffering, how to address the cause. For this issue we’re going to discuss toxins.
Toxins (poisons in the environment) have been linked to:
- Brain tumors
- Heart disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Immune system failure
- Much more
Many of these diseases are linked to chronic or long-standing inflammation which is what toxins create. A toxic person is like a walking time bomb, waiting for disease to strike.
Toxins come from our external environment (exogenous toxicity) and from our internal environment (endogenous toxicity).
There are so many toxins in our external environment that we can’t list them all. They include air pollution, herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, mercury and other heavy metals from dental fillings, chemical factories, waste dumps, toxic chemicals injected via vaccination, outgassing from carpets and various products, the chlorine and fluoride and waste chemicals in our water – the list is long and depressing.
Toxins in Newborns
Toxins are so common that researchers have found more than 200 chemicals in newborn umbilical cord blood including the controversial plastics additive bisphenol A, or BPA, which mimics estrogen and has been shown to cause developmental problems and precancerous growth in animals. Is it any wonder why our children are so sick today? (Goodman S. Scientific American. Sept. 2, 2009.)
Toxins generated from inside our body include oral pathology such as infected root canals, infected wisdom tooth sockets, infected tonsils, longstanding waste in the colon, intestinal parasites and many others. Toxins generated from inside the body can be just as dangerous as those from outside the body.
What do you do for toxicity?
How do you remove toxins? It is done through the process of detoxification.
Since ancient times, for thousands of years, people all over the world in many cultures have employed numerous detoxification procedures such as fasting, hot baths, sauna, clay, cleansing diets, sweat lodges, exercises, special diets, enemas, colonics, massage, bodywork, sunlight (heliotherapy) and many other procedures.
How do you start to detoxify?
There is much you can do to detoxify. Doctors of Chiropractic, Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Chinese medicine and Ayurveda and other healthcare practitioners from different disciplines often specialize in or work with people who can address toxicity.
