«When all the knots of the body are untied, then, even here, in this human life, the mortal becomes immortal. It is the supreme teaching. »

The world, environment, and societies where we live have made bodily contamination impossible to ignore. Through eating, breathing, skin absorption, and everyday exposure to limitless products and chemicals made and used by humans, contaminants find their ways into the body.
 

Over time these heavy metals, toxic chemicals and residues, plaques and other unnatural intruders continue to slowly accumulate. If the body’s natural detoxification pathways (such as the blood, lymph, and cerebral spinal fluid) cannot eliminate them faster that they enter the body, the buildup can eventually reach toxic (and dangerous) levels. Some of the body’s more commonly-encountered contaminants are identified here.
 

HEAVY METALS:

Metal Sources Description
Aluminum Antacids, antiperspirants, baking powders, beverage/food cans, buffered aspirin, canned foods, city water supplies, cookware and utensils, cosmetics, foil, lipstick, ore smelting plants, processed cheeses, etc. Abundant in today's environment and toxic in excessive quantities, aluminum is mostly absorbed through the skin, lungs, and intestinal tract. Aluminum toxicity seems to affect the bones (causing brittleness or osteoporosis), kidneys, stomach, and brain. Research suggests that it may also contribute to Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, and other neurological disorders.
Arsenic Chemical processing plants, cigarette smoke, drinking water, fungicides, meats and seafood, metal foundries, ore smelting plants, pesticides, polluted air, specialty glass products, weed killers, wood preservatives, etc. Extremely poisonous as well as colorless and odorless, arsenic can enter the body through the mouth, lungs and skin. Arsenic toxicity seems to predominantly affect the skin, lungs and gastrointestinal system, and may cause nervous disorders, deteriorated motor coordination, respiratory diseases, and kidney damage as well as cancers of the skin, liver, bladder and lungs.
Cadmium Air pollution, batteries, ceramic glazes/enamels, cigarette smoke (both first and second hand), tap and well water, food (if grown in cadmium-contaminated soil), fungicides, mines, paints, power and smelting plants, seafood, etc. Exposure to cadmium can occur through inhalation or ingestion in places or situations where cadmium products are used, manufactured, or ingested. Cigarette smoke is the biggest source of cadmium toxicity, which seems to primarily affect the lungs, kidneys, bones, and immune system. It may lead to lung cancer, prostate cancer and heart disease, and also causes yellow teeth and anemia. Cadmium also seems to contribute to autoimmune thyroid disease.
Lead Air pollution, ammunition, auto exhaust, batteries, containers for corrosives, contaminated soil, cosmetics, fertilizers, foods (if grown in lead-contaminated soil), hair dyes, insecticides, lead-based paints, lead-glazed pottery, pesticides, solder, tobacco smoke, water (if transported via lead pipes), etc. Lead is a naturally-occurring neurotoxin. Although many lead-containing products (such as gasoline and house paints) were banned in the 1970s, contamination still occurs today mostly by drinking lead-contaminated water, breathing lead-polluted air, and living in or near older painted buildings and certain toxic industrial areas. Lead toxicity primarily targets the nervous system, kidneys, bones, heart and blood, and poses greatest risk to infants, young children and pregnant women. It can affect fetal development, delay growth, and may also cause attention deficit disorder, learning disabilities, behavioral defects, and other developmental problems.
Mercury Air pollution, barometers, batteries, cosmetics, dental amalgam fillings, freshwater fish (such as bass and trout), fungicides, insecticides, laxatives, paints, pesticides, saltwater fish (such as tuna and swordfish), shellfish, tap and well water, thermometers, thermostats, vaccines, etc. Both poisonous and dangerous, mercury is found throughout our environments in many forms and also in many household items. Mercury often permeates the ground we walk on, and is also found in some childhood vaccines today because of its use as a preservative. Mercury as used in dental fillings is the primary source of toxic exposure, and in vapor form accounts for the majority of all exposures (via inhalation). Mercury toxicity can affect the central nervous system, kidneys and liver. Research suggests that this heavy metal may also contribute to autism and multiple sclerosis.
Thallium Infrared and electric eye optical devices, foods (if grown in thallium-contaminated soil), light-sensitive crystals, photocells, rodent and ant poisons (now discontinued), contaminated cocaine (or what is thought to be cocaine), semiconductors, etc. Thallium is a toxic heavy metal with no known biological function. Human contamination can occur from oral ingestion as well as through the skins and lungs, especially if exposed to thallium-contaminated dust from lead and zinc smelting plants, pyrite burners, and similar processing sites. Thallium toxicity mainly affects the nervous system, and can lead to maladies such as hair loss, nerve degeneration, extremity numbness, and cataracts.

OTHER CONTAMINANTS:

Contaminants Sources Description
Arterial Plaque Diet (such as intake of fat, cholesterol, and sugar), lack of exercise, smoking, stress, weight, etc. This is a buildup of fatty material, calcium, cell debris, connective tissue, and/or other deposits that accumulate on the inner walls of arteries due to various factors. The body builds up these plaque deposits to protect the artery’s walls, and it can eventually lead to vessel narrowing, restricted blood flow, stroke, and heart attack. Cardiovascular plaque and cerebrovascular plaque refer to buildup in the blood vessels of the heart and brain, respectively.
Mycoplasmas Infected people (via coughing, sneezing, etc.), self-replication, etc. These are microorganisms found living in the blood and cells of people with certain chronic diseases. Both disease-causing and parasitic, mycoplasmas are similar to typical bacteria but have no solid cell walls – resulting in a shape-shifting ability that makes them hard to identify and eradicate. Mycoplasmas are known to cause various unrelated diseases on their own as well as act as co-pathogens in other diseases. They adapt well to changing conditions and can move anywhere within the human body, invading and attaching to either the inside or outside of their chosen host cells without killing them. Different species of mycoplasmas have now been linked to diseases like pneumonia, fibromyalgia, lupus, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, and many others.
PCB's Contaminated air, food, soil, water, etc. These comprise the large group of chlorinated liquid and solid chemicals no longer produced but which still remain at large in the environment due to their binding abilities and lengthy breakdown periods. PCBs still taint air, water and soil in their places of manufacture, use, disposal, spillage, and leakage. In these areas, exposure to PCBs can occur through skin contact, inhalation, and ingestion of contaminated water, fish, and marine mammals.
Vaccination Residues Immunizations for diphtheria, hepatitis B, Haemophilis influenzae type B (HIB), measles/mumps/rubella (MMR), etc. Harmful toxins can remain in the body after certain vaccines for childhood and adult disease prevention are given. These leftover toxins (such as thimerosol, a known source of mercury and a suspected cause of childhood autism) can contribute to heavy metal burden and lead to other dangers.
Pesticide Residues Domestic and imported fruits and vegetables (fresh, frozen and canned) Non-organic fruits and vegetables can contain various neurotoxins and carcinogens left over from pesticide use. Ingesting such produce can result in dangerous levels of such chemical residues in the body. Apples, pears, fresh peaches, winter squash and spinach are among the produce commonly having highest pesticide residue levels.
Chemtrail Residues Aircraft Non-contrail substances sprayed from airplanes in streaks and web-like patterns at both low and high altitudes are believed by many to contain chemicals for population control, weather manipulation, large-scale vaccinations, and other unknown and/or unproven government programs. (Contrails, by contrast, are the normal white streams of cloud-like condensed water vapor that often trail aircraft flying at high altitudes.) Analyses of spray residues have revealed aluminum, barium, biological organisms, pathogens, and other contaminants. Exposure can occur through the air via descending particles, and reported exposure symptoms include skin rashes, sore throat, itchy eyes, asthma attacks, and respiratory ailments.

At birth, when first exposed to the outside world, the body – guided by a genetic disposition inherited from the parents– begins developing antibodies to defend against external poisons affecting the system. During life the body keeps building antibodies in reaction to most everything it encounters: cooked/processed foods (and their preservatives), chemicals/toxins in the air and ground, other environmental contaminants, drugs, inoculations, dental fillings, sexual partners, and other exposures.
 

As the body keeps building its protective wall of antibodies, the immune system – like a cup gradually filling with liquid – continues to fill over the years while the body continues to fight against external invaders, forced to build and keep up the wall of antibodies. Eventually, when the body has been fighting too hard and long, and the immune system’s “cup” reaches its saturation point and finally overfills, the onset of disease (cancer, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, or some other chronic illness) often begins. No matter what the disease, its creation began with the person’s first breath on this planet and can often be attributed to the body’s constant bombardment from external toxins during life. We can gradually rid the body of its lifelong accumulation of toxins, allowing the immune system to function more effectively and further promoting wellness in the body.

Toxicity Warning Signs

In general, you may not be aware of heavy metals and/or other harmful toxins saturating your body even though it is trying to give you warning signs of their growing (and often overflowing) presence. The body’s immune system can only withstand so much saturation by external toxins over time, often culminating in symptoms that may include the following:

These are only general warning signs and this is by no means a complete list. Also, in children, the appearance of the symptoms of autism (slow developmental progress, difficulty verbalizing, etc.) can also be an indication of heavy metal toxicity. Exposure to certain heavy metals is now thought to contribute to childhood autism.

The oral chelation therapy enables us to release ourselves from these toxins. This process exists in a natural state in the body and it can be increased by the contribution of food and products acting like chelating agents to dislodge these undesirable contaminants.
