Deep Detox – How to get the body well

Thanks to Mark James Gordon for the video!



Is Your House on Fire?

I recently made an analogy about what cancer is on a Facebook group and received a few messages saying it helped understanding so here it is:

Cancer occurs when a cell is damaged by acid and then this damaged cell mutates. That is cancer. Remember, the bottom line is that nothing else can damage a cell, it can only be acid.

The allopathic medical community tell us that cancer “spreads”. A cell cannot damage another cell to cause cancer. It does not “spread”. But, this is how cancer occurs in different areas of the body.

To get cancer to begin with your body must be at a high level of acidity (genetic factors aside but even then, acids still have to be involved. Genetics passed down are weaknesses). If you are acidic, the area of your body that is the most weak is likely to be the first place you get cancer. BUT remember, the rest of your body is already acidic or “hot”.

Many conditions such as fibromyalgia or arthritis are essentially acidosis. It’s acidity that causes inflammation, sure you can lose yourself in the complexities that obviously exist in this discussion, but the bottom line is acidity, there is nothing else that exists that can cause this. When you have something like fibromyalgia your body will be so acidic or toxic that you will notice that you perhaps have a bad reaction to citrus fruits, because your body cannot tolerate any more acidity. In addition you may react to medications that you used to be OK with. Essentially, your glass is full and you cannot take any more.

Cancer treatment is often chemotherapy which has a PH of about 3, highly acidic. Sure it may kill cancer cells, but it kills everything else too. They may as well throw you on a fire, burn you to death, and say that they killed the cancer.

So you have a highly acidic body to begin with, then add chemo, it’s a cocktail of disaster and frankly death. This is why people say that their cancer has “come back”. Either they didn’t change their acidic lifestyle, or the chemo caused the cancer. Don’t take my word for it, even the allopathic community admits it’s cancer causing. The cancer did not come back, the conditions that promote its creation either remained or were made worse. So, of course, it has to “come back”.

A useful analogy is a house fire. You may have seen those safety videos where they leave a cigarette burning on a sofa, the sofa soon is engulfed in flames whichroom fire go up and cover the ceiling. The room obviously gets extremely hot. Things around the room NOT touched by any fire burst into flames on their own. The first to go are usually small coffee tables or paper, these are the “weakest”. This process is called the “autoignition point”. This is where an item spontaneously ignites. You see, the entire room got hot. The table did not “catch fire” FROM the sofa, it caught alight because the room was already so hot.

It is the same as an acidic body and why cancer appears in one place, then another and so on. So there is no “spreading” involved. It’s in a state where the weakest go first and the strongest go last.

Regarding why cancer cells are found in the lymph nodes. Given the role of the lymph nodes in the body, this is where you’d expect cancer cells to be! But that’s a different discussion. Again, the stress is that it did not spread.

A Little Plastic In Your Sandwich Won’t Hurt

In the news recently we’ve heard that the food chain Subway, and subsequently other organisations, have been using the chemical Azodiacarbonamide in their bread. This is also used to make rubber in some shoes as well as exercise mats.

The extraordinary thing (or perhaps not so extraordinary) is that Azodiacarbonamide is FDA approved. The Food and Drug Administration are those that are supposed to oversee safety in the food and medical industry in the U.S. Their argument for having this chemical approved is that in small quantities it doesn’t hurt you. We hear this nonsense all the time and it’s a lame excuse. Poison is poison. Just because you can ingest a small amount and not have any immediate effects doesn’t mean it’s OK, it means that the harm is too small to be measured.veggiesub - Copy

Other industries are still hiding the ingredients of their products. It is intentional that wine makers, for example, have fought long and hard about not listing the ingredients of wine. One of their excuses is that it will confuse and create misconceptions. So they are not listing it to protect us from ouirselves? They want to make money, that’s the bottom line and never forget it. Real wine is made from grapes and… only that. It doesn’t always age well and certainly doesn’t travel well. Go to an Italian, French or any small village where people make wine traditionally and you’ll notice that good natural wine tastes nothing like what you buy in a store. Listen, it’s simple, when things are kept from you, it is because it is not in your interest and somebody somewhere is making a lot of money from keeping you ignorant.

As the years pass we see less and less people growing their own food. Our diet is increasingly being supplied by multi-billion dollar corporations that produce food-like products in factories. Is it a coincidence that children in school are not taught about how to grow fruits and vegetables? They grow up only knowing that food can only be bought. Isn’t this what should be considered basic knowledge?

If you can’t grow your own food you don’t need me to tell you what to eat, it should be real food as nature intended and It should be at the very least organic. Anything else is simply not good enough for your body. Sure you won’t grab your throat and fall to the ground in convulsions if you eat genetically engineered food or a tiny bit of plastic (!!!) in your “bread”, but at some point you’ll get sick, usually when the body has had enough and starts complaining to you with symptoms like swelling, inflammation and congestion.

Stop it now and eat real food, it’s what you’re supposed to eat and nothing else will do, literally.

You’re no different

– What works for one person may not work for somebody else. We’re all different –

Do you think the above two statements are true? Many of my clients feel different from “society”, a lot have exhausted conventional medicine and seek to heal themselves through different means. At this point their friends and family see the change, see them get better and in many cases better than they have ever been. Then the trickle of comments start and often the things they say relate to how we’re all individuals and just because, for example, someone may see vast health improvements by cutting out mucus forming food such as dairy, well, it doesn’t mean that it will work for everyone, “we’re all individuals”.

Well, we’re not. We’re all the same. We all need the same basic type of food and the same (tropical) living conditions. We may have spread ourselves all over the world and invented boxes called houses and yes our genes may vary, but none of this alters the fact that we all need the same things. Especially in terms of food and shelter.

Do you have a dog? A cat? What do you feed it? Dog or cat food? Without getting into the details of commercial ‘pet food’, aren’t our pets all different? Well in terms of personality sure, but put that aside and they (at least) should eat the same type of food as they would in the wild. Just like us.Apples

Even with our homes most of us are lucky to have, homes that are virtually sealed from the outside elements, we still need heating and/or air conditioning to maintain the climate we still haven’t evolved from. So why is food any different? It isn’t. We can eat a wide range of substances that we now believe to be food, and we can survive on it for some time, but read the headlines and you’ll see that we are not getting any healthier. We may be better off than the squalid conditions of yesteryear,  but don’t get confused, we should never have gotten ourselves in such a situation to start with.

The medical community has failed us. Don’t blame the doctors, it isn’t their fault. Blame the faceless corporations that have created the concept incorrectly branded ‘Healthcare’. There cannot be health when the only advice given is to take more and more medications. Medications the body cannot recognize. Medications not designed to cure you, but to suppress the symptoms, the symptoms that are signals from the body that something is wrong.

If you can see through the illusion, imagine yourself in nature eating the uncooked raw foods that we once ate, there lies your answer. I agree that foods have lost so much of their vitality through over farming and mass productions methods, but this isn’t a reason to eat something else, because there is nothing else.

You don’t enjoy your food

When you first start to eat in a different way to most people, you have to endure the trickle of comments that, in one way or another, are designed to make you justify your choices. Sure there are going to be some people that are genuinely curious. I went vegetarian around 1989, later vegan and since 2011 mostly raw food but always vegan. In my experience, these conversations start because if that other person accepted your choice then they’d have to accept their way isn’t necessarily right. I have never brought up my eating choices for conversation but am often asked.

One of the most common remarks I hear is that it’s important to ‘enjoy’ your food. I suppose it is. But who really enjoys their food? I’m sure the majority of people will positively state that they do. But they don’t, and nor do you. Perhaps a Buddhist monk may enjoy their food as they meditate or eat it mindfully. But other than that you’re watching TV, reading something, you’re chatting with someone either at home or at a restaurant. Before you know it, it’s gone. You didn’t savour every mouthful. You may say it was lovely when you finished it, but that isn’t the same thing.Salad with mango, avocado, arugula and walnuts

Are you a happier person today because of that lovely meal you ate last week? Last month? All those meals you enjoyed so much last year? Ask yourself that question, I don’t need the answer. Your first line of thought may be that yes, you are happier, because those meals were part of your life and you were able to carry on because of that food. But this isn’t about that, this is about whether you enjoyed it, really enjoyed every mouthful. Because that’s what enjoying something is, right? If you’re not enjoying every moment, it’s merely an activity that takes place whilst you’re thinking about or doing something else.

I certainly think food should taste good but so it should otherwise we wouldn’t eat it. But if your happiness comes from food then you’re likely to have a problem. How much time do we spend actually eating a day? 30 minutes? 45? It’s a very small part of your day and you’d do well to think about the 90% of the time you aren’t eating and see what you enjoy from that.
