I started learning about Detox in 1985 and by 1987 I was clear about it. Except there was tons I did not know. And did not know that I did not know. Colon Cleansing? Yep. Liver Detox? Yep, and then you keep learning new stuff about skin detox, Sauna and millions of herbs that you have never heard of.
So far, so normal…
But things start to get seriously mysterious when you focus on Heavy metals. I addressed them in my Detox books in terms of the normal detox techniques mentioned above.
Then I read “Amalgam Illness” by Dr Andy Cutler and I was blown away by his grasp of what is involved to detox Heavy metals like Lead, Mercury and Aluminium.
We have all heard of chelation, but took Cutler to get ill with Heavy metal poisoning to then figure how how to use the process of chelation to rid his brain of mercury and cure himself and then write his book informing others how to use this safe and precise technique.
Due to him my knowledge of Detox got way deeper and several mysteries were dispelled.
Well as usual when you learn something fantastic you think you know it all ( or is that just me?)
Then I was lucky enough to go much deeper.
I had been following Dr Rhonda Patrick interviewing various experts on Anti-Aging and other topics in Health and she did a number of talks on the Cellular Process called Autophagy ( pronounced like “Ought of a Gee”). All cells can do this but they need a signal to start. One signal is a big reduction of incoming food. It’s like not going out to the shops for grocery shopping – you just have to rummage through your cupboards and see what is at the back of the fridge!
All cells and all animals can do this.
And what happens is that the cells go into a huge decluttering process and clear out lots of junk and repair and rebuild so much that you end up as healthy as you were many years ago.
It is as if you had a Time Machine and could go back 10 years or more. It can sound complex when you listen to the experts like Patrick discussing it but the methods of doing this are several and one of them is the so called FAST DIET.
I’ll be writing a lot more over the next few months as I try the methods out. This the deepest Detox there is and I find the prospect of doing it and going deeper very exciting.
This is part of what has me so excited…
