Welcome to DetoxStrategy.com.
Toxins are all around us. In the air we breathe, the water
we drink, and the food we eat. Some are even created by our own bodies—the
result of countless minute functions occurring at a cellular level every second
of every day. If allowed to accumulate over time, those toxins can lead to
poor health and disease.

Natural Detoxification is the comprehensive process by which our bodies filter and remove toxins,
and it involves the combined efforts of a group of organs and organ systems known
as the ‘7 channels of elimination.’ They are the , and together they are responsible
for getting rid of waste and toxins. But even though the human body is equipped
with a built-in detoxification system, it was never meant to handle the overwhelming
number of toxins it encounters today.
Our Toxic World
a message from Brenda Watson, CNC
from The Detox Strategy Book Introduction
"In its June 2006 report, titled "Preventing Disease Through Healthy Environments,"
the World Health Organization focused on the environmental causes of disease and how numerous
are influenced by environmental factors. In what is perhaps the most comprehensive
study yet designed to examine how environmental factors, including exposure to unsafe
water and indoor and outdoor air pollution, contribute to disease and ill health,
the WHO stated that of the 102 major diseases reported yearly, 85 are partly caused
by environmental factors, and it estimates that in the United States alone nearly
400,000 deaths each year are preventable simply by making improvements to our environment.
"Having reported similar findings, the Centers for Disease Control feels so strongly about the connection
between environmental factors and disease that they have created an entire department
dedicated to the investigation of environmental exposure and disease. Over the last
four years, the division of Environmental Hazards and Health Effects has laid the
foundation for a national system designed to track environmental hazards and the
diseases they cause. With the help of this system, dubbed the National Environmental
Public Health Tracking Network, scientists, policymakers, communities, and the general
public will soon have access to more information that they need to prevent exposure
to the environmental factors that can lead to poor health and disease.
"I once joked that we would someday be living in a "toxic soup" of dangerous chemicals, and now
I realize how true those words were. As time has passed and the reports from health
and governmental sources continue to corroborate my unintentional premonition, the
future of our society's health has become disturbingly clear.
"The question is, What can we as individuals do to protect our own health and the health of our families
in the coming years?"
