Conventional medicine continues to develop at a rapid rate, becoming ever more technical and specialized. Depending on what type of headache you have, you may visit an internist who may in turn refer you to a neurologist, an ophthalmologist, of even a psychiatrist.
In this traditional form of medicine, the different warning signs are viewed as different body parts being ill, but what if all these indications are interrelated? What if your headache, skin rash, constipation, stomach ulcer, insomnia, and muscle spasms are all signs of the same underlying problem? What if the medicines that suppress your pain also suppress your immune system and possibly compromise your health over the long term?
This traditional view has always been opposed by advanced physicians and other holistic healers who suggest that warning signs are the body's way of trying to get rid of
toxins and to regain homeostasis and balance. Therefore, advanced therapies benefit you not by suppressing the body's defense
mechanisms, but by cooperating with these systems.
Toxins may be defined as substances which produce physical,
emotional, and psychological imbalances in an individual.
We are consistently exposed to toxins every day. There are
two types of toxins: exogenous and endogenous. Exogenous toxins
are present in the outside environment, whereas endogenous
toxins are produced as a result of imbalances in our metabolism.
exogenous toxins which affect us are
||Smog and petrochemicals
alcohol, sugar, food preservatives
||Heavy metals: mercury, aluminum, lead, cadmium
||Bacteria: streptococcus, staphlococcus, salmonella (food poisoning)
||Viruses: Epstein-Barr, Influenza, Cytomegalo virus, Herpes, HIV
Toxins are discharged from the body by the liver, kidneys,
lymphatics, colon, lungs and skin. As more and more toxins
accumulate in your system, they place severe stress on these
organs of elimination. With continued accumulation, the liver,
kidneys, and other organs may begin to malfunction, causing a
weakening of the immune system. The endocrine glands no longer
secrete the proper amounts of hormones into the bloodstream
- metabolism slows, producing a hospitable environment for
The gradual accumulation of low levels of toxins cannot yet
be measured by conventional analytical methods, so many doctors
deny their existence. As instrumentation and measuring methods
become more sophisticated, such toxic states will be recognized
as dangerous. TNA is a sensitive tool that can detect
these toxins and their whereabouts in the body. The TNA does not diagnose disease, rather it helps the practitioner identify nutritional status and toxic load, to help you achieve and maintain a state of health and wellness.
What are the Warning Signs Caused by Toxicity?
There are two types of illnesses caused by toxicity:
1) Nonspecific illness
This includes poorly-defined signs
such as fatigue, headaches, insomnia, bad breath, muscle stiffness,
depression, allergies, etc. this group is very difficult to
categorize, with many combinations possible. Many of these
warning signs are also labeled as hypoglycemia, candidiasis, food
allergies, and stress.
2) Specific illness
This includes better-defined
syndromes having a characteristic set of warning signs. Some examples
are: migraine, arthritis, psoriasis, influenza, sinusitis,
immune deficiencies, tumors.
In the last several decades, our food supply, drinking water,
air, and soil have become increasingly contaminated with toxic
chemicals. Never before has the human body been presented
with such a heavy burden of foreign substances to metabolize
and eliminate. In addition, excessive use of fast food, caffeine,
and alcohol continue to be widespread in our culture. Over-the-counter,
prescriptions, and recreational (illicit) drugs complete the
picture, taxing the human body beyond its natural capabilities
At the same time, physicians are seeing an increase in such
nonspecific issues as chronic fatigue, migraine headache,
and sinus congestion. Some individuals find themselves being
much more susceptible to colds, or to whatever "bug"
is currently going around. Much more serious are the increasing
cases of autoimmune disorder such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid
arthritis, and lupus.
We are being inadvertently exposed to toxic chemicals in
our home, work, and recreation environments throughout the
day and night. The body has a certain capacity to detoxify
itself, but when this is exceeded, toxins deposit both within
and around the cells, causing a wide variety of health problems.
Low-level toxicity from many sources can be very difficult
if not impossible to detect. Yet the combined action of these
toxins creates a "Toxic Cocktail" effect which can
seriously weaken an individual's immune system, making them
even more susceptible to ailment and stress. The warning signs
of such exposures are not usually correlated to the presence
of toxins. In fact, conventional medical testing often does
not have an explanation for the warning signs, hence the frequent
diagnosis of "psychosomatic" maladies. The warning signs
of toxicity may take years to manifest after initial exposure,
making it extremely difficult to correlate the toxins with
Ignoring toxins or failing to recognize the
body's toxicity can eventually lead to chronic systemic toxicity,
which ultimately results in damage to internal organs or tissues.
Routine laboratory tests will not indicate the presence of
toxins in the body, but warning signs will persist, occurring rarely,
sporadically, frequently, or on a daily basis.
Some people are more vulnerable/susceptible to toxins than
others. Their reaction to the toxicity os a given substance
depends on a number of factors, including:
||The amount to
which one is exposed.
||The state of
their elimination and filtering organs.
||How tolerant one is to the
The human body is a powerful self-detoxification machine.
Any disorder or chronic/excessive stress can compromise its
self-detoxification ability, resulting in an increase of toxic
load in the body.
The majority of detoxification and elimination is carried
out by four systems in the body:
Toxic Ping Pong Effect"
Patients who are physically ill should be encouraged to undertake
detoxification only under the supervision of a trained professional
to avoid the resettling of toxins in the same or different
tissues (organs), a phenomenon which is known as "the
toxic ping pong effect". Instead of being eliminated
from the system when they are dislodged, the toxins simply
relocate, with the associated reactions.
This occurs when:
is undertaken without appropriate drainage therapy and
the body cannot handle the extra stress from stirred-up
Effective detoxification is best performed under supervision
of a qualified health care professional specializing in such
therapies. Each person will have a unique toxic load profile
with various causes. The ideal detoxification procedure is
one customized for each person.
However, in any detoxification program which actually stimulates
cells to release toxins, it will draw on the resources of
the body to eliminate the toxin. This means that a person
with high toxic load and low energy resources will experience
sluggishness and fatigue while energy is being redirected
to a cellular level.
When the elimination process is done successfully,
most people experience:
of reactions and warning signs
||A distinct increase
in energy and vitality
of general well-being
and resistance to stress
to colds, flu, and infections
||Overall Improve Health
The specificity of TNA is unique in that we are able
to determine what body organs are being affected and also
by what toxins. This enables us to assess an individualized
treatment approach for detoxification and tissue repair.
* By this equation, we do
not intend that toxicity is itself a disease; rather, if such toxicity is
addresses, disease may result; and, without addressing such toxicity all of your body's normal responses to disease may be less effective than they
be. Our approach to health shows you how to
support your body's normal ability to detoxify, to help you achieve and
maintain a healthy status.
