5 Elimination Systems Of The Body
Bowel| Kidneys | Lungs | Skin | Liver | Lymph
All 5 systems are equally important
The lymph system works with these four systems by serving as a "garbage collector" to carry metabolic by-products and accumulated cellular waste from tissues to the elimination organs
Each of these systems eliminates about two pounds of material per day in the normal healthy adult.
If any one of these channels become overloaded or clogged and slowed down, there will be an accumulation of toxic material in the body tissues.
If any one of these channels become overloaded or clogged and slowed down, there will be an accumulation of toxic material in the body tissues.
When the elimination channels have too much work to do, they become inefficient, and instead of being carried out of the body, the toxins are forced into the bloodstream and settle into those organs and tissues which have the least resistance to toxic material.
These areas are usually the inherent weaknesses of the body. The body is always generating waste material as a by-product of metabolic processes.
Other waste is derived from food residues, which are of no use to the body, including salt, artificial colourings and preservatives, processing by-products and other additives.
Significant levels of toxins also accumulate in the body tissues as a result of environmental pollution.
Not only from air, water, and chemicals, which are consumed or contacted directly, but also from pesticides and industrial waste, which spread up through the food chain from the air, water and soil to the plants, fishes and animals that end up on our dinner plate.
The build-up of toxins in the body tissues and in the bloodstream is the pathway to lowered vitality and disease.
Intestinal stasis (alimentary toxaemia) in particular, is implicated in a wide range of illnesses including fatigue, headache, asthma, hypertension, degenerative ocular changes, arthritis, degeneration of the muscles, liver, kidneys and spleen and many forms of cancer.
THE BOWEL (COLON)
The bowel is important as it is the primary organ of elimination, consisting of 20 feet of small intestine and 6 feet of large intestine. In the majority of people, the bowel is the most under-active organ in the body.
The purpose of the small intestine, with its finger-like villi, is the absorption and assimilation of foods
The colon large intestine is divided into four sections: The ascending, transverse, descending, and sigmoid colon. It removes excess water and breaks down waste products prior to elimination.
There is also healthful society of flora in the colon. These bacteria do more than just break down waste. They make things like vitamin B-12 and other nutrients needed by the body from nutrients left in the chyme, as well as prepare the faeces for elimination. The colon is a final processing center for food.
Regular bowel activity promotes health. An under-active bowel increases the burden on other elimination organs and introduces toxic material into the bloodstream and lymph system, and this material then settles in the inherently weak organs and tissues of the body.
When one ignores the needs of the bowel, it eventually interferes with the body functions. This can cause a loss of sensitivity in nerve endings in the bowel, making one unaware of its malfunction and ultimately leading to frequent constipation.
Organs most affected by bowel under activity are the lungs and bronchioles, kidneys, skin, liver and lymph system. These organs become overloaded with toxic settlements, and this leads to under-activity and mineral deficiency.
The autonomic nervous system tends to become irritated and less efficient.
Studies show that over half a million people in the U.S. suffer from ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s colitis-inflammation of the colon marked by abdominal pain and diarrhoea.
Next to lung cancer, it is the leading cause of cancer related deaths in America. One hundred and thirty thousand new cases of colon cancer are reported each year and as many as 59 000 prove to be fatal.
Pay attention when the bowel needs to move, do not wait. Don’ be in a hurry make time for yourself Wait long enough for the bowel to empty entirely.
The kidneys are responsible for filtering the blood and excreting excess water and waste products in the form of urine.
The kidneys conserve blood volume, the electrolyte balance, the acid-alkaline balance of the blood and influence blood pressure and the rate of red blood cell production in the bone marrow.
There are two kidneys and they are located at the back of the abdomen.
Each kidney contains 70 miles of filtering tubules whose function is to conserve water, glucose, and essential chemical elements and to eliminate acid by-products of protein metabolism and other wastes from the blood.
The kidneys filter 200 quarts of blood every 24 hours and excrete 2 quarts of urine.Kidney disease affects millions of people around the world, and under activity is relatively common.
Under active kidneys affect the bowel, lungs, skin, lymph, heart, blood pressure, autonomic nerves and many other organs and tissues by increasing the levels of toxic acids in the bloodstream and by altering electrolyte balance.
When water is lost (as a result of diarrhoea or sweating), the kidneys conserve it. Another important function of the kidneys is to control the body’s acid-base balance.
When blood and body fluids become too acid or too alkaline, the kidneys change the pH of the urine to restore the balance.
The kidneys thus fulfil a very important role in elimination, apart from their many other functions.
Kidney infection and kidney failure occur when a calcified stone obstructs the flow of urine in the kidneys or bladder. The build up of mineral deposits in the urinary system can lead to fluid retention and weight gain. Kidney diseases affects millions of people around the world!
Drink lots of filtered good quality water
Eat watermelon in summer to flush the kidneys.
The lungs oxygenate the blood and eliminate carbon dioxide, a by-product of carbonic acid in the body.
The lungs are also involved in regulating temperature, acid-alkaline balance, and lymph movement.
When the lungs are weak and clogged up with toxins, they are not strong enough to eliminate properly.
The lungs are bilateral cone-shaped organs that fill most of the chest cavity. They are made up of branches (bronchioles) and clusters of air sacs (alveoli).
Under activity of the lungs and bronchioles affects the bowel, kidneys, skin, lymph, heart, autonomic nerves and every other organ or tissue in the body by increasing the level of carbonic acid in the bloodstream reducing oxygenation, increasing catarrh levels and general acidity.
Lung under activity is often associated with allergies, asthma, lymph congestion, catarrhal problems, arthritis, fatigue, acidity throughout the body and lower metabolism.
When the lungs are healthy, they eliminate as much as 1 kilogram of waste materials every day. When the lungs are weak and clogged with toxins, they are not strong enough to eliminate properly.
Living in an environment with a high level of air pollution or working with radioactive minerals, asbestos, or eating unhealthy foods can cause lung disorders.
Catarrh (Phlegm and mucus) is the universal symptom of imbalances in the body, indicating disease-producing processes at work.
Often an excess of phlegm and mucus occurs in the lungs, which is also known as catarrh. It is always the first symptom to appear and it always indicates an excess of acids and mucus being developed due to tissue inflammation.
Its presence often signals the onset of a cold, flu or other elimination process. Unfortunately the most common response is to take a drug to stop it.
Catarrh can occur in any part of the body, but since the lungs are filled with small porous grape-like air sacs called alveoli, they are good collecting places for mucus to build up.
What causes catarrh to occur in the lungs? The body produces catarrh as a protection from the irritants that are there.
In a normal body, mucus is made by goblet cells in the mucus membrane linings. This mucus lubricates and protects the sensitive tissue lining these parts of the body.
If germs, foreign matter of toxic substances enter the body, they are entrapped in the sticky mucus which is eventually excreted from the body as catarrh flowing mucus.
Catarrh can also occur in people who have certain allergies or food sensitivities to wheat or dairy products.
When white flour, sugar and pasteurised milk are mixed together, a sticky paste is formed. Such a paste can also form in the body. Other processed, denatured junk foods can also cause catarrh.
If the body receives one of these foods or a combination of them on a daily basis for a long period of time, they can begin to clog the pores and cells of the weakest organs of the body.
A person who has inherited weak lungs from the onset of life and is then raised on “pasty” foods and perhaps grow up in an environment of cigarette smoke, often have frequent colds.
If the colds are suppressed by well meaning mothers by giving the child medications, the sticky catarrhal material will be pushed deeper into the tissues of the lungs along with all the germs, foreign matter and toxic accumulations it contains.
Phlegm is a natural method of the body to get rid of the toxins. This condition can later develop into pneumonia.
When antibiotics are given, the child may appear to be free from symptoms, but in fact, the catarrh has been suppressed to a deeper level of lung tissue.
If hardened mucous blocks the air passages of your lungs, you literally run out of breath. Poor hearing may result if sticky mucous enters the ducts that connect your throat with your ears.
It is a mirror of our general well being!
When the skin is under active, uric acid builds up in the body. The skin’s function is to protect the body from the environment and to eliminate some of the same toxins expelled by the kidneys.
The skin is the largest organ in the body, weighing 3kg in the average adult, and covering an area of 2 square meters. It is vital for the skin of a person to eliminate ± 1kg of toxic material each day.
A rash can also appear when the body is attempting to rid itself of poisons held in the tissues.
When the bowel, lungs, kidneys, lymph system, liver and digestive system are sluggish, many toxins are then forced to be eliminated through the skin, and an under active skin affects other elimination organs.
Most of these conditions can be relieved through a diet that will assist the body in cleansing the tissues and replenishing the nutrients that are deficient
When the skin is not working properly and cleaned daily, the pores can become clogged and may be dry and scaly, with boils, pimples, acne, psoriasis, and so forth.
An deal programme to keep the skin healthy is the 6 DAY INNER CLEAN DIET
Severe conditions will need one or more 7 DAY TISSUE CLEANSE
The liver is important to detoxification but is more particularly concerned with the food materials after they have been absorbed into the bloodstream.
The liver weighs about 1.3kg on average and fills most of the space under the right half of the diaphragm. It is the largest gland in the body, approximately the same weight as the brain, the largest organ in the body.
The liver is an iron organ - it needs a lot of iron. The liver uses and needs oxygen for purification. It is the body’s detoxifier.
Twenty-five percent of all the blood in our bodies is in the liver right now. That amount of blood is in our liver because it is removing all the toxins, all the garbage our bodies doesn’t need.
The liver has direct control over growth and functioning of every cell in the body. Any kind of malfunction, deficiency or abnormal growth pattern of the cell is largely due to poor liver performance
Due to its extraordinary design, the liver often 'seems' to perform normally (balanced blood values), even after it has lost up to 60% of its original efficiency. As deceiving this may be to the patient and his doctor, the origin of most diseases can easily be traced to the live
The liver produces clear, golden coloured liquid called bile. This bile is stored in the gall bladder, where it becomes more concentrated and changes colour from yellow to dark green.
Bile is necessary for dissolving fats so that lipase from the pancreas can digest them prior to their being absorbed. Bile also increases the peristaltic movements of the intestinal tract, and thus keeps the colon regular.
Most people believe that gallstones can be found only in the gallbladder. This is a common false assumption.
Most gallstones are actually formed in the liver and comparatively few occur in the gallbladder. You can easily verify this assessment by giving yourself a liver cleanse.
Obstructions in the body are directly and indirectly linked with restricted liver performance -- in particular, to an impasse caused by gallstones in the liver and gallbladder.
The presence of chunks of clotted bile (gallstones) in these organs greatly interferes with such vital processes as the digestion of food, elimination of waste and detoxification of harmful substances in the blood.
It matters little whether you are a layperson, a medical doctor, a scientist, or someone who no longer has a gallbladder and, therefore, is believed to be free of gallstones altogether. The results of the liver cleanse speak for themselves. No amount of scientific proof or medical explanation can make these any more valuable than they already are.
Once you see hundreds of green or beige-colour gallstones floating in the toilet bowl during your first liver flush, you will intuitively know that you are on to something very important in your life.
By understanding how gallstones in the liver contribute to the occurrence of almost every type of disease, and by taking some simple steps to remove them, you are able to put yourself in charge of restoring your own health and vitality on a permanent basis.
The implications of applying the liver cleanse for yourself or, if you are a health practitioner, for your patients, are immensely rewarding. To have a clean liver is to have a new lease of life.
By decongesting the liver bile ducts and the gallbladder, the body's 60-100 trillion cells will be able to 'breathe' more oxygen, receive sufficient amounts of nutrients, efficiently eliminate their metabolic waste products, and maintain perfect communication links with the nervous system, endocrine system and every other part of the body.

THE LYMPH DRAINAGE SYSTEM
The lymph system works with the elimination systems by serving as a "garbage collector", to carry metabolic by-products and accumulated cellular waste from tissues to the elimination organs.
The lymph carries nutrients to the parts of the body where the blood cannot go and carries away wastes, emptying it into the bloodstream.
When the lymph stream is not pure, the impurity will finally get to the joints and various parts of the body in the form of uric acid and catarrh. This can cause rheumatic problems or it can carry toxic waste from the bowel to the other tissues in the body causing toxaemia, infections, aches, and pains.
Without exercise, the lymph cannot efficiently carry nutrients to the areas where they need to go.
Lymph nodes are located along the lymph stream in the joints, armpits, neck, spine and groin, where they are protected by the bony structure which is the strongest structure of the body.
They are concentrated in these areas because these are the areas where the most amount of movement takes place.
The nodes filter lymph fluid and remove dangerous impurities such as dead red blood cells, millions of debris-laden white blood cells, chemicals, and dyes.
The lymph nodes in the lungs of people who live in large smog-laden cities are often completely black from the soot that they filter from the air.
Sometimes the lymph nodes swell because of an overload of catarrh and bacteria and can be quite painful. Some people have an inherently weak lymph system. They are the ones who have "swollen glands" quite often. These people hold water in their tissues more easily than others and will display puffiness in their face, hands, and feet. They may gain weight from water retention and have difficulty losing it.
The lymph must be kept clean and free flowing. When it is not kept clean, wastes build up in the body and proper chemical elements do not reach the glands.
To prevent lymphatic congestion take fast walks, taking deep breaths and swinging the arms. Exercise is essential for a healthy lymph system
Skin brushing is also a excellent way to move the lymph. A person with a weak lymphatic system should eliminate all wheat and dairy products from their diets. These foods become quite pasty in the body and can easily clog the lymphatic system.
Now that you know how the body gets all clogged up with toxins, you face the challenge of what to do about cleaning out the body
