Insidious Toxins Are Invisible Killers

One thing to keep in mind as you study homotoxins and how to cleanse your client’s bodies of them using mesotherapy before tissue degradation is irreversible is that many of these toxins are not obvious.  The insidious homotoxins, that are brought to us via our lifestyle, are harder to detect and yet we know that they are part of the development of many serious diseases.  Homotoxins that fall into this category include oxidants (that age your cells with free radicals), radiating agents, ultraviolet radiation, latent radioactivity and radiotherapy.

Insidious Homotoxins are Part of Our Lifestyle

One of the reasons it is important for your client to constantly be cleansing and healing their bodies is the fact that North Americans lead a lifestyle that makes it next-to-impossible to avoid them. For instance, oxidants that break down our cells are often found in the foods and drinks that we consume every day. Smoking is also a source of oxidants.  Oxidants literally age the tissue in the same way that water rots metals. The degeneration of the cells is slow, but slowly and surely they become useless.

Radiation is also a part of our lifestyle and it is nearly impossible for the every day person to monitor its levels.  Every day we are exposed to natural radiation from the earth’s magnetic field, solar radioactivity, radioactivity from space and all kinds of invisible rays that can harm our tissues such as gamma, cosmic, x, infrared and ultraviolet rays.

We also poison our systems when we use telephones, radios, radars, cordless instruments, Bluetooth and instruments. Giant electricity pylons and electrical stations also emit massive amounts of non-visible radiation.

Geopathic Toxic Stress

Geopathic toxic stress occurs when your client lives above underground water courses, above an earthquake fault, deposits of minerals (like uranium) or a covered over waste dump. These geopathic toxins can cause problems such as insomnia, nervousness, fatigue, cramps, depression, nightmares, racing heart, frequent colds and headaches.

This is one of the most insidious of health crises because the problem is situational and the toxification is persistent and subtle.

A good example of this type of stress is sick building syndrome in which a set of symptoms are produced that are somehow related to off-gassing chemicals from when the building is constructed. Sometimes the toxins are emitted through dirty or inefficient air exchange systems or through chemically tainted water. A very common issue is lead poisoning caused by water run through lead pipes.  Sometimes the problem is due to chemical absorption through respiration and the skin of chemicals in office products, like glue or White-Out and prolonged exposure to fumes from duplicating machines. Sick building syndrome is a very real affliction and recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO).

One of the markers of a good naturopath is the ability to really listen to your client’s complaints and then be able to identify the subtle agents ) that are part of their environment and lifestyle) that might be causing their illness. Being aware of insidious toxins and their effects can go a long way towards helping you diagnose your client and assist them with mesotherapy treatments.
