Cleanse or Die Prematurely

May 9, 2022 Puzzle Piece

Our bodies are equipped to protect us from many kinds of toxins.  Your natural filtration is efficient; however, it’s not equipped to handle the workload thrown at it in this modern day and age of pollution. There are substances, like heavy metals, and environmental exposures your body doesn’t have a method of removing.  Unfortunately, these substances are growing more commonplace and causing many illnesses, disease and death.
It’s crucial for everyone to take steps to cleanse their body and repair the damage of years of toxic exposure and accumulation.  These toxins are accumulative and increase damage and dis-ease of many types.
Where the Toxins and Heavy Metals Come?
Heavy metals, pesticides, defoliates and a long list of toxins are everywhere in the ground, the water, the air and products we use every day. There’s still paint with lead in it lining old houses and buildings. Do a renovation on such a location and all that lead dust gets kicked up into the air and into your lungs. Essentially, you accumulate toxins when you eat, drink, breath and handle various products, including pesticides.  Many skincare products contain toxins and irritants.  Black mold is very dangerous following leaks in your water system or flooding for any reason.
Most Common Heavy Metals Your Body Can Accumulate:
  • Mercury
  • Lead
  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Arsenic
  • Cadmium
  • Iron
  • Cobalt
Please note: There’s a significant difference between organic minerals and the heavy metal form. Mercy, lead and arsenic are common heavy metal contaminants. 
According to a publication in the NATO Science for Peace and Security book, “atmospheric heavy metals pollution is one of the most serious problems facing humanity and other life forms on our planet today.”
The line between who’s at greater risk and who’s at lesser risk is thinning. You don’t have to work in a smelting or mining operation to be contaminated. You can do something as basic as touch receipt paper from the store, spray weed killer, pesticides, and use certain cosmetics to accumulate toxins for a very short list.
You further accumulate heavy metals from water pipes, cookware and jewelry in your immediate life. More comes at you from the agricultural field, manufacturing and even pharmaceuticals. Even if you don’t personally use pesticides on your own property, the agriculture industry relies heavily on their use, and these contaminate the food you eat, the air you breathe and the clothes you wear.
One report by USA Today explained that elevated levels of lead were found in almost 2,000 water systems in the United States. Another study found that over 3,000 communities in the U.S. have double the amount of lead in their water as the infamous Flint drinking water.
As previously stated, cosmetics and beauty products are often contaminated with toxins and heavy metals. These include products like lipstick, eyeliner, eye shadow, blush, moisturizers, hair dye, and sunscreens.
Another surprising place to find heavy metals is in your furniture, specifically ones that have been treated with fire retardant. This includes the seats and dashboards in your car and the mattress you sleep on.
There are a variety of jobs that expose employees to heavy metals every day. Employees are constantly breathing in heavy metal particles floating through the air and absorbing them through their skin. The professional fields at greatest risk include miners, smelters, welders, construction workers, and battery or electronics recycling workers.
Since heavy metals, especially mercury is found in water, fish absorb them, and you get a dose of heavy metals when you eat the fish. According to the World Health Organization, cadmium has the most widespread distribution of the six heavy metals and mercury the most limited. The FDA began a Total Diet Survey program in 1965 and originally intended to monitor pesticide levels in food, expanded to analyze the levels of lead, zinc, cadmium, mercury, arsenic and selenium in food in heavy metal form.
The Toll Toxins Take on Your Body
Toxins and heavy metals accumulate in your body, which effects organs and tissue function that can create a host of health problems.  Test for the use of (Opti-Enviro Detox & Opti-Metals Detox). This includes your GI tract (Opti-GI). Most of them will give you severe gastrointestinal and nervous systems problems (Opti-Brain).


There are many ways how toxins and heavy metals damage the human body, but the common thread is that they interrupt enzymes and interact with DNA in such a way that basic cellular processes shut down.
Heavy metals are shown to inhibit a wide variety of enzymes, and arsenic poisoning manifests as a host of symptoms including seizures, brain hemorrhages, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, anemia, muscle aches, and hardening of the skin.
Signs of Chronic Heavy Metal Exposure:
  • Skin changes
  • Impaired cognitive, motor and language skills
  • Nausea, lethargy, malaise
  • Insomnia
  • Emotional instability
According to OSHA, high mercury exposure results in permanent nervous system and kidney damage. An increase in the incidence of lung cancer has been observed among workers in industries that produce chromate and manufacture pigments containing chromate. Beryllium can cause sensitization, lung and skin disease in a significant percentage of exposed workers.
Arsenic - Arsenic is a protoplasmic poison since it affects primarily the sulfhydryl group of cells causing malfunctioning of cell respiration, cell enzymes and mitosis. Arsenic compounds get methylated by bacteria, algae, fungi and humans, which results in poisoning.
Lead - The sources of lead exposure include mainly industrial processes, food and smoking, drinking water and domestic sources. In the US, more than 100 to 200,000 tons of lead per year is being released in the environment. Some is taken up by plants, fixation to soil and flow into water bodies, hence human exposure besides what we breathe. 
A plant with high lead concentration increases the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), causing lipid membrane damage that ultimately leads to damage of chlorophyll and photosynthetic processes and suppresses the overall growth of the plant. This damage carries on into humans when we eat these plants.
Mercury - There were 3, 596 acute heavy metal poisoning cases listed in one year as far back as 1997 recorded by the American Association of Poison Control Centers. Major sources of mercury pollution include anthropogenic activities such as agriculture, municipal wastewater discharges, mining, incineration, and discharges of industrial wastewater.
The brain remains the most serious target organ for mercury, yet it can impair any organ and lead to malfunctioning of nerves, kidneys and muscles. It can cause disruption to the membrane potential and interrupt with intracellular calcium homeostasis.
Cadmium - In the US, more than 500,000 workers get exposed to toxic cadmium each year as per The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.
Your body has no method of removing cadmium. In industry is used in rechargeable batteries, for special alloys production and is present in tobacco smoke. Humans may get exposed to this metal primarily by inhalation and ingestion and can suffer from acute and chronic intoxications. Cadmium can replace zinc present in metallothionein, thereby inhibiting it from acting as a free radical scavenger within the cell.
Chromium - Chromium occurs naturally by the burning of oil and coal, petroleum from ferro chromate refractory material, pigment oxidants, catalyst, chromium steel, fertilizers, oil well drilling and metal plating tanneries. It is extensively used in industries such as metallurgy, electroplating, production of paints and pigments, tanning, wood preservation, chemical production and pulp and paper production.
Chromium compounds are respiratory tract irritants, resulting in airway irritation, airway obstruction, and lung, nasal, or sinus cancer.
Iron - Many people have been exposed to elevated levels of iron through drinking water and many take too much in their supplements. A wide range of harmful free radicals are formed when the absorbed iron fails to bind to the protein. This circulating unbound iron results in corrosive effect of the gastrointestinal tract and biological fluids. The free iron can also lead to lipid peroxidation, which results in severe damage to mitochondria, microsomes and other cellular organelles.
Nutrients Proven to Remove Toxins and Heal Your GI Tract
The key to removing heavy metals is to chelate them. In order to convert them from inorganic to chelated takes a potent, therapeutic blend of the right nutrients backed by research. Chelating agents bind to heavy metal toxin ions and convert them to a form your body knows how to expel.  Opti-GI contains the following nutrients:
Chlorella - Chlorella binds to dioxins and other environmental toxins, repairs the body’s detoxification functions, improves the antioxidant glutathione, and binds to heavy metals, chelating them.
Psyllium - The use of psyllium has been shown to block the reabsorption of heavy metals back into the body once secreted into the gut via the liver and gallbladder.
Licorice Root - Licorice root is shown to support gut, liver and immune health. In one study in the Journal of Agriculture Food Chemistry, scientists demonstrated that licorice root helped the entire body rid itself of toxic waste by excreting it via the kidneys (in urine) and the liver (in bile).
Ginkgo Biloba - This herb functions as an antioxidant and free radical scavenger. It is commonly used to treat lead poisoning.
Pectin - Originally used to treat patients after the Chernobyl disaster, pectin excels at entering the bloodstream and latching on to heavy metals, thus making it possible for your body to remove both the pectin and metals from your body.
