Survey: How Toxic Are You?

Aug 14, 2008
Being toxic is easy. All you have to do is breathe and eat. In today's world, you just cannot escape the poisons that are all around us. Sadly, things are not improving fast enough to make a difference that we will see in our lifetime.

You don't have to let toxins rule your life. But overloading your body can bring on some very undesired effects such as:

* Fatigue
* Headaches
* Gas and bloating
* Aches and pains
* Dry itchy skin
* Body odors
* Skin irritations
* Sleeplessness
* Indigestion
* constipation

So what should you do to release toxins, well, you cleanse. You can expect wonderful results such as:

* Better sleep
* Renewed energy
* Improved digestion
* Reduced aches and pains
* Regularity

Like food, detoxification has now become a necessity. There are no longer any questions of just how long and how often. The answer is basically until you die, because we will never in our life time escape toxins in our environment.
