For Beyond 50's "Natural Healing" talks, listen to an interview with Christopher Vasey, a naturopathic doctor in Switzerland. He'll talk about how to cleanse your body of colloidal and crystalline toxins. You'll learn that colloidals are slimy and sticky. They thicken their holding fluids, clogging blood vessels and lymph. Oftentimes, they cause congestion, triggering stasis of the organs. Crystal wastes are smaller in size than a rock crystal but the structure they share is the same. They are just as hard and have sharp edges, capable of cutting. This gives them an aggressive and irritating nature, hence their tendency to hurt the tissues and cause inflammations.
Illnesses from the Build-Up of Colloidal Wastes -
Problems with the Respiratory Tract (colds, chronic cold, sinusitis,
bronchitis, asthma), Skin (greasy skin, whitehead pimples, oozing
eczema, acne, boil, carbuncle, sty), Circulatory System (hemogliasis,
varicose veins, hemorrhoids, arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure,
heart attack and stroke, cellulitis).
Common Foods That Build Up Colloidal Wastes - Carbohydrates, cheeses, oleaginous seeds and nuts, along with fatty foods.
Elimination Routes of the Body - Liver, intestines, sebaceous glands and lungs.
Illnesses from the Build-Up of Colloid-Crystalline Toxins - Cardiovascular Diseases (heart attacks, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, hemogliasis), Degenerative Diseases (constipation, bile stones, ringworm, candida, allergies, hay fever, The Mixing of Toxins in the Eliminatory Organs (dry cough, dry bronchitis, dry asthma).
Illnesses from the Build-Up of Crystalline Toxins -
Problems with the Skin (red pimples, itching, hives, dry eczema,
chapped and cracked skin, herpes, shingles, joints, arthritis leading to
osteoarthritis, Gout, Kidney Stones, Nerves and Muscle (neuritis,
tendonitis), Digestive Tract (dental cavities, canker sores, gastritis,
liver weakness, intestinal fermentation and bloating, and colitis).
Common Foods That Build Up Crystalline Wastes - Mushrooms, sugars, fats and proteins tend to create crystalline toxins, along with some grains as a secondary producer of this waste due to their protein content. Liquid like coffee, tea, cocoa, wine and vinegar are similar offenders.
Elimination Routes of the Body - Kidneys and sudoriferous (sweat) glands.
To learn how to
naturally cleanse these two types of toxins by controlling their entry
and encouraging their elimination through the organs and glands, Dr.
Vasey goes into great detail about drainage that combines diet, herbs,
enemas, lymphatic massage, water, food supplements and exercise in his
book, "Optimal Detox."
