We believe that the two most powerful ideas in health today are detoxification and nutrition.

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.
