We believe that the two most powerful ideas
in health today are detoxification and
Our exposure to toxins is higher now than at any
point in human history. So many aspects of our
lives contribute to our toxic burden without our
awareness. While many of us probably have some
idea that being around pesticides or automobile
exhaust probably isn't good for us, most of us
would probably be surprised to know that the
fire retardants present in virtually everything
in our homes (in the United States) also exposes
us to toxins. Even our carpeting outgases over
12 chemicals known to cause cancer. Toxins
damage cells, disrupt our endocrine systems, and
impair the body's ability to absorb nutrients
and heal itself.
Besides toxins inhibiting our ability to absorb
nutrients, other factors also contribute to
reduced nutrition. Worsening the state of our
health is our increased need for nutrients
resulting from our use of antibiotics and other
medications, our diets high in protein and fat,
and our often high-stress lifestyles.
When it comes to both detoxification and
nutrition: You are what you don't excrete.
Nutrition that cannot be absorbed is excreted,
so you aren't really "what you eat". When it
comes to exposure to toxins, the body cannot
metabolize most of the poisons it is exposed to.
Most of these toxins remain in the body for many
years, stored in the fat cells that exist
throughout the body. Our incremental exposure is
quite small, however, by remaining in the body,
even small incremental amounts result in
significant amounts over time. As the ability of
science to measure increasingly smaller amounts
of toxins in the body improves, we are finding
that it does not take very large amounts to
degrade body functioning. What's worse is that
these many toxins combine in unpredictable ways
to produce a combined effect worse than the sum
of the individual effects.
High Tech Health products help bring the body
back to a state of balance.
Lowering our toxic burden, while increasing our
level of nutrition helps the body heal itself.
Most of us, as we get older, are plagued with
chronic ailments that drug-based medicine cannot
cure but rather only cover up. If it hasnít
happened to you yet, chances are good that you
are on your way. In many of these cases, all
that the body needs is some assistance returning
to balance, and it will heal itself from there.
