Detoxification Is Nothing More Than A Scam – Juicing Is A Waste Of Money
So…Our Bodies Don’t Need Detoxification Help From Us?
I thought detoxing was a process you put your body through so that it can eliminate toxins and more efficiently repair damaged cells and restore optimal functioning back to our organs that is being comprised by these toxins being present.
That’s a one of the main reason why we juice…Right?
Apparently, Professor Edzard Ernst, thinks “detoxing” is something our bodies do perfectly on its own and don’t need our help.
“Let’s be clear,” says Edzard Ernst, emeritus professor of complementary medicine at Exeter University, “there are two types of detox: one is respectable and the other isn’t.” The respectable one, he says, is the medical treatment of people with life-threatening drug addictions. “The other is the word being hijacked by entrepreneurs, quacks and charlatans to sell a bogus treatment that allegedly detoxifies your body of toxins you’re supposed to have accumulated.”
Now as I read Ernst opening statement in this article to understand his foundational logic behind making this statement, I extracted this quote that identifies the premise to his statement.
Foundational Logic (Premise):
If toxins did build up in a way your body couldn’t excrete, he says, you’d likely be dead or in need of serious medical intervention. “The healthy body has kidneys, a liver, skin, even lungs that are detoxifying as we speak,” he says. “There is no known way – certainly not through detox treatments – to make something that works perfectly well in a healthy body work better.”
If our bodies work perfectly well to detox on its own, shouldn’t we remain optimally healthy for life (of course, not meaning to account for other variables that could cause death like fatal accidents)?
Is it possible to put an overload on our bodies that the organs can’t keep up with that would eliminate the toxic buildup at the rate needed to stave off dis-ease?
I have to ask you, Mr. Ernst, does medical science attribute the cause of any “dis-ease” to a toxin? I believe their are studies that show toxins like heavy metals like lead, carcinogens like the ones found in our foods and personal care products, industrial chemicals like the ones in our cleaning agents, emitting from car exhaust and in the environment, etc. are measurable in our bodies and do attribute to dis-ease.
I have to say, Mr. Ernst, that I do agree that our bodies can do its job in eliminating toxins but I disagree that it never needs help to do it.
What do you think? – Is detoxification a SCAM? … Is Mr. Ernst an Educated Ignorant Man? …Is he being paid to say this?
