As I am getting deeper into my own detox process and also other peoples processes I get questions about the basics and fundamental principles of detoxification, or what we simply call detox. Why do we choose to heal your body with detoxification instead of medication?
We follow and study with an American Doctor named Dr Morse and I have had amazing results healing my hypothyroidism with this his teachings. I will start to summarize this philosophy in one (or more) articles.

Treatment or Deoxification
Basically, we have two choices to make when we develop a condition or disease: Treatment or Detoxification. If we choose treatment, we have two additional choices. The first choice is allopathic (pharmaceutical) medicine, which is the status-quo medical or chemical approach. The second choice is natural (traditional) medicine, which uses products made from natural sources or herbs to treat the symptoms. If we choose the allopathic approach to “fight” our disease, it is important to understand that allopathic medicine offers only three types och treatments for any condition: chemical medicines, radiation, or surgery.
Natural medicine, or what we refer to as “traditional medicine”, differs from the allopathic approach. Natural medicine simply treats disease with natural products(those made from animal, plant or mineral substances) or herbs, which are found in nature. The science of natural medicine has been around for hundreds of thousands of years.
Detoxification is not a system of treatment or a way to remove symptoms; it is a system of curing by addressing the cause of the disease. It involves the understanding that the body is the healer, and that energy is the core of healing. It also sheds light on the true cause of disease – the destruction of energy. Energy or the destruction of energy results from what we eat, drink, breathe, put on our skin, and from what we think and feel. These are the six ways we either make ourselves healthy and vital, or sick and weak.
There is no magic or mystery to health or disease. Disease is a natural process! When we understand how the body works, and what causes the tissues in the body to fail, we will then understand what causes disease symptoms and how to reverse it.
To understand how to get healthy, it is first important to change your concepts about disease. Most people fear disease because they do not understand its causes. Western traditional medicine education make diseases appear so complicated that the average person thinks only a trained person can help them. This is not true. To understand disease symptoms is simply to understand acidity and toxicity, and how the body responds to these conditions. In understanding this, you will see that disease is a natural process – the outcome of imbalanced decisions and actions.
There are only three basic causes of disease symptoms:
1. Acidosis, which causes inflammation, leading to congestion, ulceration and atrathopy (tissue failure).
2. Toxicity, which causes congestion, inflammation and cellular damage, thus leading to tissue failure.
3. Tissue weakness or tissue failure itself, caused by genetics, acidosis, and/or toxicity. Acidosis (over-acidity or inflammation) and toxicity are the main causes of tissue failure, which can cause innumerable effects or symptoms. These three causes are behind 99. 9 percent of all diseases.
Your body is a living, conscious machine. It can rebuild itself after surgeries, major cuts and wounds, so why would not after nerve damage or atrophy? The truth is, it can! But not on a diet of dead animals and other cooked, dead foods. Regeneration had three main components to it: Alkalize, Detoxify and Energize. All three work together and are inseparable.
Alkalization is vital to tissue regeneration because it is anti-inflammatory. It builds electrolytes for proper ionization, oxidation and neutralization. It allows for proper cellular respiration and for disbursement of nutrients throughout the body.
Detoxifying, cleans out all the obstructions, irritants and stimulants like mucus, heavy metals, chemicals and pesticides out of your body. This allows for proper digestion, absorption, utilization, and elimination.
Energizing your cells with energy from living foods is also vital to robust health. Without the power of live foods, which are full of nutrition and electricity, you can not accomplish alkalization and detoxification.
Detoxification is the only way to establish a true homeostasis within the body. This homeo-stasis can be elevated to unlimited heights. Vitality and vibrancy should always be one’s goal. Life then becomes exciting, joyful, and bubbling with energy. Come join me on my way to vibrant health!
