Why We Need To Remove Toxic Chemicals From Our Bodies

We live in a toxic world.

By simply avoiding toxic chemicals in your home and specifically taking an action that removes toxic chemicals from my body, one should experience these improvements:

* sleeping more deeply and getting a full night’s rest * waking up refreshed and rested

* having good energy, but not hyper

* clear mind

* feeling happy and cheerful

* feeling like I have the energy to do whatever I want

* digestive tract improvement

* suddenly scheduling evening social activities instead of resting

* getting a lot of work done

* not feeling stressed

* don't feel like I'm "slogging through the mud"

* eyesight noticeably better

* wanting to go for a walk instead of making myself exercise * increased strength and muscle development without exercise * feeling more alive and vibrant * skin is very soft and smooth, a noticeable change

* lost six pounds in one week with no exercise or change of diet

* feeling like I can take on more and bigger projects

Avoiding new chemical exposures in my home got my body from being disabled to functional, detoxing my body to remove the chemicals stored in my body from past exposures is bringing my body closer to its natural state of good health.

Our Toxic World

We can take control of the toxic chemicals we are exposed to at home, but the minute we walk out the door we encounter all kinds of toxic chemicals from pesticides spraying, automobile and commercial vehicle exhaust, airplane exhaust, incinerator emissions, manufacturing smokestacks and other industrial sources. As soon as we walk into a building, we’re likely to be hit with toxic emissions from building materials, carpets, pesticides, and cleaning products.

And the world has been toxic for at least as long as I’ve been alive. Rachel Carson wrote about the poisoning of songbirds by carcinogenic DDT in 1962, when I was seven years old. But researchers had already found residues of DDT in human fat in 1944. Before I was born, DDT had already been detected in Antarctic penguins living thousands of miles from the locations were the pesticide was being used.

In 2005, Environmental Working Group established that toxic industrial chemicals can be transferred from mother to baby before birth via the umbilical cord blood, proving that babies are now being born contaminated with toxic chemicals. But babies didn’t start being born contaminated in 2005. I suspect now that I was born contaminated way back in 1955. Toxic chemicals were already in consumer products and the environment then. We just didn’t know about them or their devastating effects.

So even if we remove toxic chemicals from our homes—where we have our greatest and most immediate toxic exposures—we still have already been exposed to toxic substances for most or all of our entire lives and continue to be exposed to toxic chemicals out in the world each day.

This is just the reality of today’s world. There is no place on Earth that is 100% pristine, nor any product that is 100% pure.

We cannot avoid 100% of toxic chemicals that exist in the world today.

But until we remove toxic industrial chemicals from our Earth, there are things we can do to protect our health from this onslaught of poisons.

Your Body's Detoxification System

To sustain life, our body systems need inputs of food, water, and air and--equally as important—they need to eliminate wastes. When we don't eliminate wastes from our bodies, it's like having the garbage in our homes pile up because we haven't put it outside in the garbage can to be taken away. Not a very pretty sight either way.

Many millennia ago, when our bodies were designed to flourish in the larger web of life, the only wastes the body had to deal with were natural ones:

* metabolic wastes generated by body functions * foreign invaders, such as bacteria, viruses, mold, pollen and other natural materials * natural poisons, such as spider and snake bites, and toxic chemicals in smoke

Because our bodies need to eliminate things that don’t belong in them, they have natural systems of purification and elimination to keep the whole body system running smoothly. Toxic chemicals enter the body through being injected into the skin (such as drugs), ingested through the mouth (such as pesticides in food), absorption through the skin (such as chlorine while taking a shower or swimming in a pool) and inhalation through the nose (such as toxic chemicals in cleaning products). Toxic chemicals then enter the bloodstream, which carries them to all parts of the body. Then they exit the body through the kidneys via urine, through the liver via bile which goes into the intestines and leaves the body through feces, through the skin via sweat, and through the lungs as we breathe.

How toxic chemicals in consumer products and in the environment affect the health of your individual body depends entirely on the condition of your body’s detoxification system.

Body Burden

If your body’s detoxification system is not working well, or is insufficient for the amount of chemicals you are exposed to, then the toxic chemicals that come into your body will not be excreted, but instead will be stored in your fat, semen, breast milk, muscles, bones, brain, liver and other organs.The total amount of these chemicals that are being stored in your body at a given point in time is called your “body burden.”

Various chemicals move through your body at different rates. Arsenic, for example, is mostly excreted within 72 hours of exposure. Some pesticides can remain in your body for 50 years. Of course, how quickly chemicals are removed from your body depends on the condition of your body’s detoxification system and the amount of toxic chemicals you are exposed to. When you are continuously exposed to toxic chemicals, more toxic chemicals enter the body than can be removed by your detoxification system, and body burden results.

Approximately 80,000 industrial chemicals are used in the United States. We are exposed to these chemicals through the consumer products we use and from the air, water, and soil pollution put into the environment by their manufacture.

Scientists say that everyone alive today is contaminated with at least 700 toxic chemicals in their bodies. It doesn’t matter where you live or what you do. Just being on this planet, every body is contaminated.

In recent years it has become abundantly clear that we are being exposed to more toxic chemicals than our bodies can eliminate. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now monitoring the body burden of the US population, taking samples every two years.

EPA biopsies of human fat show that 100% of human bodies have carcinogenic PCBs, styrene, dichlorobenzene, xylene and dioxins stockpiled in their fat.

The condition of your detoxification system determines how much of each chemical is eliminated from the body versus how much is stored, and where in the body it is stored.

Toxic Overload

Quite simply, in today's world

health = the amount of toxics we are exposed to + our body’s ability to detoxify

For good health the ratio should be less exposure to toxic chemicals than the capacity of our bodies to detox.

But for most people the ratio is more exposure to toxic chemicals than the capacity of our bodies to detox. Not only is the volume of toxic exposures greater than our natural capacity to detox, but our natural capacity is diminished by the toxic chemicals as they harm and overwhelm detoxification organs such as liver and kidneys.

Our bodies simply don’t have enough “detox ability” to handle the amount of toxic chemicals we are exposed to.

What We Can Do

When toxic chemicals build up in our bodies because our bodies are not able to eliminate them, we need to give our bodies some help.

There are two things we can do.

1. Reduce our exposure to toxic chemicals, at least in our own homes and workplaces. 2. Remove toxic chemicals from our bodies by a) Improving the functioning of our bodies’ detoxification systems and b) remove toxic chemicals directly from our bodies.

By taking these actions, we can give our bodies the best chance for good health.

JULY 19 Seminar: Stress, Hormones, Detox, Gut Health & Inhibited Weightloss!

Julie Tebben is back to join Kasia Salon and Friends to learn why and how to address the three top weightloss and wellness inhibitors :


Your Sexy Hormones

Digestive system

Detoxification Pathways

Informed Beauty, YOU will receive:

•    Truth about Fad Diets and Myths •    Recipe Ideas •    Testing Suggestions •    Relation to- and tips on  Skin and Hair Health and MORE


The hormonal system regulates our metabolic rate and controls how we burn body fat, the digestive system provides us the nutrients we need to burn body fat and the detoxification system, when not working properly, prevents the burning of fat stores.

Date:  Monday, July 19th

Time:  6:15  pm

Where:  Kasia Organic Salon

Brief Preview:

Those Crazy Hormones.

Most weight gain can be traced to the adrenal, or stress, hormones. The adrenal hormone cortisol, best known for its pivotal role in responding to stress, also promotes the burning of body fat, helps regulate emotions, and counters inflammation —

Adrenal Exhaustion

Poor diets, lack of exercise and sleep, and long work hours leave bodies in a chronic state of stress, leaving your restorative functions impaired.

Yes, your fatigued but here are some  other adrenal rhythm impacts:

* Skin regeneration, causing wrinkles and premature aging

* Sleep quality, leading to trouble falling and staying asleep

* Bone health, which creates osteopenia or bone loss

* Muscle and joint function, leading to achy arthritis-type joint pain and neck, shoulder, and lower back pain

* Immune function, leading to frequent illness

The Digestive System

Referred as the "mother" system because it feeds our body tissues with the nutrients we need to function.

A well functioning digestive system is an crucial first step in any weight loss and wellness, as your body needs to absorb key vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids to properly regulate metabolism and burn fat.

Problems with the digestive system and hormonal system are the most common underlying causes of weight gain.

Intestinal fungal overgrowth, which triggers over consumption of carbohydrates and sweets and digestive tract and food sensitivities play a part in weight gain.

The Detoxification System

Detoxification pathways remove harmful chemicals generated from normal body functions.

Toxicity also leads to weight loss resistance. Toxins are stored in fat tissue in the body and people who are overweight will hold on to fat tissue tenaciously in an attempt to protect the body from the damage that would be caused by the release of these stored toxins.

In addition, liver toxicity leads to weight gain through fluid retention and bloating as the body attempts to buffer or neutralize the negative effects of toxins on the body.

Top 10 food choices + tips that encourage fat burning and weight loss.

These ten weight loss tips are important tools that according to Ayurvedic principles, help prepare the body for weightloss.

The added benefits of fat burning are huge and go way beyond losing weight!:

Fat is a calm fuel that burns slow and keeps the mood stable.

Fat burning neutralizes the disease-producing acids that are caused by stress.

Fat cells are where we store toxic heavy metals, fat soluble chemicals, pesticides, preservatives and environmental pollutants like estrogenic plastics.  When we burn our fat cells, we continually detox.


Grapefruit is one of nature's fat metabolizers.  They are coming into season right now, so don't miss them.  Remember the old grapefruit diets, where you ate nothing but grapefruits?  That diet had merit but it was too extreme, I suggest eating just 1 or 2 a day. They are great for breakfast as a "fast breaking" food.  Grapefruits support the momentum of burning fat that is established by having an early supper and no snacks through the night.This effect will continue through the morning as the grapefruit forces a metabolism that burns fat, stabilizes energy and balances blood sugar.  Add raw honey for maximum weight loss (see why below).


Honey is another natural fat metabolizer and according to Ayurveda, honey stabilizes blood sugar.  Unlike most sweets that create highs and lows in blood sugar, honey boosts energy and reduces cravings by forcing fat metabolism and detox.  Honey allows us to maintain the basic weight balancing plan of three meals a day without snacking. For this to work however, the honey must be RAW, which means not cooked, not pasteurized and not heated.  Raw honey also scrubs toxins (ama) off the intestinal wall and fat cells.

If honey is heated for any length of time or cooked (such as in muffins, bread or desserts) it will not burn fat or detoxify toxic fat cells. The cooked honey becomes a toxic hardened material.


Water is a critical tool for encouraging better fat metabolism.  A study from The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, (volume 92 number 8) showed that drinking 500 ml increased thermogenisis (heat production) by 24 percent.  This increase of metabolic activity before a meal will support more efficient digestion and fat metabolism. In Ayurveda it is recommended to drink 1-2 glasses of water 15-20 minutes before each meal. The water allows the stomach to be hydrated so it is more willing to robustly produce the hydrochloric acid (HCL) needed to digest a big meal.  HCL ensures that what enters the stomach is properly broken down and absorbed in the small intestine.

If the stomach is dry or dehydrated, it won't produce enough HCL for optimal digestion because that much-needed acid would end up burning the stomach lining.  In a future newsletter I will explain why lack of digestive acids is actually the major cause of indigestion and heart burn.

Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice in your water before a meal for an extra weight loss boost (see why below).


High insulin levels caused by poor diet and eating habits tell the body to store fat.  Low insulin levels are one of the major factors associated with weight loss.  Breads are usually public enemies for losing weight because of the hard to digest gluten content and their impact on insulin levels.  Many get results by avoiding breads and gluten altogether to lose weight.  This strategy treats the symptoms of gluten intolerance, but it is essential to find out why the gluten is not digested in the first place.  I will report on this in detail in a future newsletter.

TIP:  Toasting breads helps lower the impact of gluten on the digestive villi because it makes it easier to digest.


Eating vinegar before each meal helps to balance blood sugar and lower insulin levels, which typically spike after a high starch meal according to the September 2005 issue of the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The vinegar is a weak ascetic acid that fires up the digestive acids needed to break down a heavy starchy meal. The Italians often start each meal with balsamic vinegar.  If you're not a balsamic vinegar buff, just add more vinegar to your salad.

If vinegar isn't your thing, Ayurveda suggests a few simple recipes to increase HCL production in the stomach:

·         Lemon juice does basically the same thing as vinegar and makes a perfect salad dressing with raw honey.

·         Lemon juice can also be used alone, on food, or in some warm water that you sip with the meal.

·         To really boost digestive strength slice ginger root into dime size slices. Sprinkle the slices with natural salt (Himalayan, Redmond or Celtic salt) and fresh lemon juice.  Eat two before each meal.


Drinking green tea with meals, as the Japanese and Chinese do, helps decrease the absorption of excess fat according to the March 2007 issue of the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry.  White, green and black tea regulate the enzyme lipase, which breaks down fat.  These teas have been shown to stimulate fat burning genes and aid in weight loss according to the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism in 2009.  Antioxidants in white, green and black tea also neutralize the toxic chemistry of stress. When caffeine is taken with a meal, such as green tea, the caffeine acts as a digestive stimulant and is beneficial for the efficiency of digestion.  The same caffeine on an empty stomach can be depleting to the adrenals and digestion.


A little spice with each meal can slow the absorption of white sugar and increase the amount of calories burned during each meal according to the July 2006 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Digestion.  Peppers, ginger, Turmeric, cayenne and digestive herbs like Trikatu help stimulate HCL production.

Turmeric: decreases physical pain, inflammation, cholesterol and liver ailments; increases mental clarity, intestinal health and bile flow, and fat metabolism.


Sipping hot water every 10-15 minutes all day for two weeks acts as a digestive cleanse and a lymphatic flush. This is one of the best techniques to treat dehydration, which is a major factor in weight gain.  Dehydration triggers a survival response in the body that chemically tells the body to store fat.  Proper hydration supports the bicarbonate level just inside the stomach lining that protects it from being burned by digestive acids.  If the body is dehydrated, this water-based bicarbonate layer will dry out and the tummy will ache.  If it isn't treated soon, the stomach will soon be told to make less digestive hydrochloric acid (HCL), which means that food is no longer being properly digested.

My favorite test for dehydration:

·         Sip hot water every 10-15 minutes for just one day. If you are not craving and thirsting for more hot water by the end of the day, you are probably not dehydrated.

·         If you are dehydrated, you will crave more because the hot water will hydrate, dilate and stimulate micro-circulation and lymphatic drainage.  This will rehydrate the tissues as the body absorbs the water and you will get thirsty for more.

·         If you are thirsty for more hot water after one day - continue for 2 weeks to totally rehydrate.

·         Add a squeeze of lemon to spike the hot water every once in a while.  The lemon acts like soap to scrub the tissue and the hot water becomes the cleansing rinse.


One of the most common reasons for weight gain is sluggish elimination. Assist with Probiotics, which helps as an intestinal cleanser and toner that flushes toxins and excess mucus off the wall of the gut.  This helps re-assimilate nutrients properly.

I also recommend that you increase fiber in your diet by eating more vegetables, fruits and whole grains.


Try to eat one fresh beet a day for the next 3 months to help thin the bile and flush the liver and gallbladder. Beets are best grated raw with lemon juice but also have benefits when eaten cooked. When the bile flows the digestive system can break down fat and neutralize digestive acids and the liver can remove toxic fat soluble chemicals.  Optimal bile flow may be the most important piece of the digestive puzzle when it comes to weight loss - so eat your beets!

Beautiful Nutrients™

Eating a nutrient-dense and enzyme-rich diet of living fruits and vegetables, nuts, grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats have proven to have a profound effect on skin, health and disease. We want to inspire you with the truth that optimum health and beauty can be achieved by the intake of fresh, anti-inflammatory, chemical/toxin-free, enzyme-rich foods that detoxify and rejuvenate the mind, body and skin.


Beware of Silent Inflammation — inflammation that falls below the threshold of perceived pain. That's what makes it so dangerous. If this consistent inflammation goes on unknown for years, eventually it erupts into what we call chronic disease. We are in control-our food choices are critical when it comes to causing and controlling inflammation.

This inflammation may be caused by:

  • Eating a pro-inflammatory diet (i.e., high glycemic carbs)
  • Excess exposure to ultraviolet light
  • Environmental stressors
  • Weakened immune system
  • Hormonal changes
  • Stress

The most important factor in fighting inflammation is the food you eat every day. Studies have shown that when foods like fruit, vegetables and fish are digested, they produce anti-inflammatory metabolites. In contrast, red meat and dairy produce pro-inflammatory metabolites.

Improve Your Digestion

Contrary to what we have been lead to believe, we are not just what we eat-more importantly we are more about what we can digest and absorb. The health of our digestive tracts is highly integrated in our overall health.

The classic signs that all is not quite as it should be in the area of digestion are often low energy, poor skin, headaches, foggy thinking and food allergies. This leads to all sorts of other symptoms-from depression to weight gain, to aches and pains to arthritis.

The basic principles of gut health are essentially the principles of good health in general: Eat natural foods, including lots of fiber, hydrate thoroughly, choose low-glycemic carbs, and avoid sugar, white flour, and processed food.

Toxin/Chemical Free

Eating foods grown with chemicals and prepared with synthetic preservatives and additives have shown to create accumulative reactive toxins, resulting in acne, rashes and other problematic skin conditions.

Over a period of time, toxins in the digestive system clog the pores and internal channels that carry moisture and nutrients to the deeper layers of the skin. Results from this are: aging skin/spots, wrinkles, and dullish look.

Healthy skin depends on reducing the levels of toxins in your body, and the first step to doing this is to take fewer toxins in. Essential components of what you should eat to reduce inflammation are Omega-3 essential fatty acids and antioxidants.

Cold-pressed Seed Oils/Essential Fatty Acids

The most dramatic and positive skin changes come under the influence of an essential fatty acid intake/supplementation. Dry and sensitive skin affects one in every two women. An inadequate essential fatty acid intake induces water loss across the epidermis.

Kasia suggests supplementation with revolutionary Immuno-Viva's Core seed oil, offering both a cold-pressed essential fatty acids and free radical prevention in one!

Did you know? Topical skincare products address about 20% of your skin's needs. The other 80% comes from proper nutrition.

Beautiful Nutrient Suggestions

Immuno-Viva's nutritional supplements help to heal and strengthen cellular membranes and protect cells' internal structures. They work synergistically with Kasia Organic Skincare's topical products to improve the health of skin, hair and nails.

  • Immuno-Viva® Core — Immuno-Viva Core's rich Omega fatty acids and diverse blend of antioxidants help your body fight the aging process from the inside out, and counteract many health problems associated with modern living.
  • Immuno-Viva® Probiotic+ — Good health begins with a balanced digestive system. Immuno-Viva Probiotic+ delivers a robust blend of seven probiotics, or "good flora," balancing your system and enabling your body to efficiently absorb the nutrients your skin, hair and nails need to thrive.
  • Cold-Pressed Oil Synergy of Black Cumin With Other Oils — Multi-antioxidants, with addition of black cumin produced by plant seed oil extraction, can yield super-potent antioxidants greater than their weighted averages (synergism). Black caraway adds stability.

Example of Daily Nutrition

  • Breakfast: Organic/natural yogurt with chopped fresh fruit and nuts OR fresh fruit!
  • Lunch: A big salad. rich with colorful fresh vegetables, sesame or pumpkin seeds, olive oil, and using lemon juice and herbs for flavor!
  • Dinner: A hot meal of fresh (organic) fish, chicken or lean meat or a vegetarian alternative made from beans, lentils or tofu. As a side you can steam vegetables with a small amount of oil and water.
  • Snacks: Fresh fruits, raw vegetables, raw nuts anddehydrated crackers.
  • Drinks: At least six glasses of fluids/liquids a day: water, herbal and fruit, juicing of fresh fruit and vegetable, and once in a while, dairy-free smoothie.

Steer clear of protein bars, high-energy drinks, and starches. These foods make our hormones and adrenals get out of balance, and leaves us severely dehydrated.

4 Elements of Beautiful Health

We want to inspire you with the truth that Beautiful Health is so much about how we nourish our body. Here's some basic dietary guidance to help you lay your own foundations for lasting Beautiful Health.

Fight Inflammation

Beware of Silent Inflammation. Not all inflammation results in obvious or painful symptoms. Many of us are living daily with low — but still dangerous — levels of inflammation. When this consistent inflammation goes on unknown and untreated for too long it eventually erupts into chronic disease. Our food choices are critical in causing and controlling inflammation.

While some foods such as high-glycemic carbohydrates, red meats and dairy produce, are known pro-inflammatories, there are additional causes to be aware of as well. Ultra-violet light exposure, environmental stresses, hormonal changes and weakened immune system all contribute to inflammation. Studies have shown that when foods like fruit and vegetables and fish are digested they produce anti-inflammatory metabolites.

Digest This

You are what you eat. You've heard it before, and while it's true, it doesn't quite tell us the whole story. Fact is, you are what what you're able to digest and absorb. The health of our digestive tract is highly integrated with our overall health. Classic signs that your digestive system is under-performing include low energy, poor skin health, headaches, foggy thinking and food allergies. Chronic digestive ill-health can ultimately manifest in a myriad of symptoms from depression and weight gain to arthritis.

The basic principles of good gut health are essentially those of good general health. Eat natural foods, include lots of fibre and keep yourself hydrated. And choose low glycemic carbohydrates — avoid sugar, white flour and processed foods.

The Good Oil

Fats and oils have become much maligned in modern times, and while there's certainly some fats we should absolutely avoid, essentially fatty acids derived from cold-pressed seed oils are just so important for healthy skin. In fact, the most dramatic and positive changes to skin health (not too mention heart and mind health) come under the influence of Omega 3 and 6 EFA intake. Dry and sensitive skin affects one in two women. Inadequate essential fatty acid intake induces water loss across the epidermis.

We suggest supplementation with revolutionary Immuno-Viva Core, which offers cold-pressed essential fatty acids and anti-oxidant protection in one oil.

Subtract those Additives

Eating foods grown with pesticides and prepared with synthetic preservatives and additives have been shown to create accumulative toxic reactions, resulting in acne, rashes and other unpleasant skin conditions. Over time, toxins in the digestive system result in clog pores and blockages in the skins internal channels which carry moisture and nutrients to the deeper layers of the skin. The results of this can be seen in aging skin, skin spots, wrinkles and a dull complexion.

Healthy skin depends on reducing the level of toxins in your body, and this begins with reducing the toxins in your diet. Eat fresh, organic fruits and vegetables where possible. And check those labels on your packaged food. You might be surprised just how prevalent preservatives and additives are in your regular diet. Omega 3 EFA's and plenty of anti-oxidant rich foods are also great for reducing inflammation and combating the effects of built up toxins.
