How to Detox and Cleanse to Survive a Toxic World [Slideshow]

During a previous Education Week, Sylvia Rogers presented on ways to eliminate the toxins we are bombarded with day in and day out.


Redesigning Our Approach to Cleansing Eliminating Functions

  • THE GOAL: To give you the tools to design the programs you personally need


  • CLEANSING/DRAINING: dislodging, breaking down, and moving toxic materials through the body and out through the eliminative channels (CATABOLIC FUNCTIONS)
  • BUILDING/ENERGIZING/HEALING: This involves the constant repair and upkeep of our bodies. (ANABOLIC FUNCTIONS)

Why We Need to Detoxify Regularly

  • Carcinogenic Chemicals in our Water
  • Carcinogenic Occupational Toxins
  • Dietary Sources of Pollutants
  • Cleaning Chemicals
  • Personal Care Product Chemicals
  • Air Pollution
  • Harmful Xenoestrogen Sources

The Chemical Load Begins Before Birth ” …up to 232 toxic chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of 10 babies…The findings constitute hard evidence that each child was exposed to a host of dangerous substances while still in its mother’s womb.”


  • In 2007, 4.1 billion pounds of approx. 650 chemicals were produced by industry and federal facilities.
  • Toxic Inventory Release Database
    **We have approximately 75,000 chemicals produced to date.

Environmental Medicine

“Chemical compounds ubiquitous in our food, air and water are now found in every person. The bioaccumulation of these compounds in some individuals can lead to a variety of metabolic and system dysfunctions… The primary classes of the most common toxic offenders are solvents, pesticides, and heavy metals. Of heavy metals, mercury is the one most individuals are burdened by. The systems most affected…include the immune, neurological and endocrine system.”

** Walter J. Crinnion ND. Alternative Medicine Review, Vol 5, 2000.

According to, 80% of people’s exposure to chemicals occurs in the HOME. EPA (5 year study)– many homes had chemical levels 70 times higher than that of outside air.

Harmful Estrogens Are Found Everywhere

Foreign or xenoestrogens are found in:

  • The plastic or styrofoam cup holding your morning coffee
  • The PVC piping used in your homes and lawns
  • Detergents, cleaners, pesticides, lawn fertilizers, meat, unfiltered water, cosmetics
  • Microwaving foods in plastic can enhance the transfer of the plastics or phthalates into our bodies.


Universal Chemicals found in Human Fat (EPA stats,1982)

  • Styrene from Styrofoam cups
  • Dichlorobenzenes from moth balls/deodorants
  • Xylene from gasoline
  • Ethylphenol from drinking water
  • OCDD from wood and treatment chemicals The first 4 are solvents. The 5th is a dioxin. The word, “universal” means that the average person has all of these in their body.


The Benefits of Detoxification?

  • Opening the door to promoting healing and rejuvenation and greater longevity.
  • May promote slowing degeneration and aging.
  • It provides an internal shower and tune-up.
  • To be a personal tool for elimination of toxic waste accumulations, environmental toxins, acids, opportunistic organisms, mucus, excess fat, fluid buildup.
  • Inspires us to design for ourselves programs for healthier skin and complexion, weight management, reduction or elimination of aches and pains, more energy, more even moods, positive life outlook and more.


Prepare Your Mind to Meet Your Goals

We must have 100% commitment to truly get well. We may have to do some things we enjoy less than others. But what if we could change our thought processes and enjoy it all? That would be huge!! For every belief, there is a result. The faster we change our thinking, the faster the shift that brings the desired result.

Goals of Colon Cleansing

There are many benefits of colon cleansing (or limpieza de cólon) so here are just some of the goals people doing it have:

  • Transit time can range from 10 to 100 hours.
  • This reduces harmful chemical generation of bowel toxins.
  • Improve digestion.
  • To improve absorption of water soluble vitamins (B,C).
  • To maintain already normal range cholesterol levels.
  • To reduce the amount of pathogenic organisms.
