Why Detoxification Is So Important
All diseases go through four stages:
acute stage | sub-acute stage | chronic stage | final | degenerative stage
The acute stage:
The acute stage is the active stage of disease, usually accompanied by catarrh; fever, coughing, inflammation, and soreness localised in the body.
Catarrh may issue from any orifice in the body such as a running nose, coughing, sneezing, tears, earwax, and vaginal discharge.
In the acute stage, the body is actively trying to throw out the disease, and all organs are hyperactive to support the elimination.
The sub-acute stage:
The sub-acute stage is more serious.
If the body fails to throw out the disease in the acute, running stage, the inflammation sinks deeper into the tissues, reducing the metabolic rate and further weakening the body.
The chronic stage:
The chronic stage finds the body in a lower condition.
This is where flu, colds, and hay fever turn into asthma and occasional bouts of pneumonia.
This is where joint aches turn into chronic arthritis.
The final, or degenerative stage:
The final, or degenerative stage, is very nearly the point of no return.
Asthma turns into emphysema. The joints swell and grow, calcium spurs appear in the arthritis case, lumps and tumours are found to be malignant.
Much of the poor health in adults can be traced back to childhood conditions. Many children's problems such as colds, flu, earaches, mumps, measles and tonsillitis should be taken care of by natural means to prevent catarrh from being driven back into the body. Cleanliness, correct foods, stimulating activities, and pleasant surroundings with plenty of love will keep most children well.
