To The Editor:
We live in a toxic age, in which high concentrations of toxins from the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink cause our bodies to accumulate toxins faster than they can be eliminated.
"Aging is a slow poisoning, a lifetime accumulation of toxins in the body." These toxins have lowered our resistance to disease and altered our body's metabolism, causing enzyme dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies and hormonal imbalance. Toxins can accumulate within a cell, rendering it less able to function properly. It is noted that when waste accumulates within a cell, that cell becomes starved for oxygen and other nutrients. This impairs the ability of the cell to heal itself and resume normal function.
In addition, optimal health and longevity is not possible if the gastrointestinal tract is disrupted and an individual is unable to properly digest food, absorb needed nutrients and excrete waste material and toxins from the body.
When unprocessed proteins, bacteria, and microorganisms found in the bowel begin to leak into the blood stream as a consequence of abnormal intestinal permeability, the result is leaky gut syndrome. Leaky gut syndrome can lead to a host of problems as toxins overburden the immune system, liver and kidneys. Cancer and a variety of autoimmune diseases may result.
There is increasing evidence that problems that arise in the mouth can have far-reaching effects throughout the body. Mercury and other toxic heavy metals from dental fillings can leach into the bloodstream and accumulate in tissues and organs, leading to degenerative illnesses. Old dental extraction sites and root canal teeth can become toxic waste dumps as resident bacteria migrate to other areas of the body including the heart.
