The Truth About Toxins



Cleansing and detoxing are getting a ton of hype right now.  It turns out you can pretty much cleanse or detox almost every aspect of your life. From purging your belongings, to the toxic people in your life.  But, the bitter truth of modern life is that we all live in an extremely toxic environment and are bombarded with toxins every day. There are toxins in the air, in our food, in our cleaning products — and those toxins can add up.

WE ARE SURROUNDED BY TOXINS. Our air and lungs are filled with lethal pollution that surrounds us. Pesticides, herbicides and fungicides are being used each year on crops, then fed to livestock and then fed to us. Livestock consumes antibiotics, which moves down the food chain, including in our water supply, which is eventually digested by us, destroying our guts and compromising our health with many disastrous consequences to our bodies.

Our grocery stores shelves are stocked with processed foods filled with preservatives and carcinogens. Even some of the so- called “organic” labels are loaded with sugar and extra additives.

To say our lives today are often stressful and hectic is an understatement.  We don't get enough sleep.  We don’t slow down to let our bodies recharge. We just over compensate with caffeine, over-loading our adrenals and nervous system. To unwind we tend to relax and reboot with alcohol.  It’s a never ending, vicious, cycle.

This cycle that we create is detrimental to our liver and pancreas, it disrupts hormone and metabolic balance and can trigger an army of inflammatory issues in our body. This can make you feel drained, have no energy, feel sluggish and cranky.  Over time, it can turn into chronic inflammation, which is a primary cause of many inflammatory and auto-immune diseases such as lupus, MS, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Sadly, for the majority of us, the solution to these symptoms is fighting toxins with toxins by turning to pharmaceuticals for relief. DON’T DO IT!

At Deer Lake Lodge, we have another approach to begin healing your body and achieve remarkable results. Our program of fasting, juicing, cleansing and colonics is designed to energize, strengthen and enlighten. Juice fasting is an effective way to begin healing your body. By giving your system a break down from traditional solid foods, you free up the energy required to break down and digest those foods so it can power the five organs of detoxification - skin, lungs, kidney, colon, and liver - allowing your body to release and remove waste and toxins. Drinking nutrient rich foods in the form of juice will flood your body with vital micronutrients, allowing it to quickly absorb these immune boosting vitamins, minerals, and enzymes into the bloodstream and deliver them where they are most needed. Not only will this increase the health of your body internally, but it will increase your energy, help facilitate weight loss, and improve the condition of you skin. You will wake up a little bit brighter and a little bit lighter, with the feeling that you are indeed doing what is best for you!
