Due to my very personal interest regarding the many toxins in our environment I wanted to provide you information on one of the largest debates currently raging. Are GMO’s really toxic and also bad for your health? What exactly is a GMO? A GMO is an organism whose genome has been altered by the techniques of genetic engineering so that it’s DNA contains one or more genes not normally found there. A high percentage of food crops, such as corn and soybeans, are genetically modified. A leaked study examining these genetically-modified foods reveals that the lab-made alternative to organic crops contains a startling level of toxic chemicals. This makes daily use of a Far Infrared sauna not only smart but necessary. Consistent use of a Far Infrared sauna allows your body to eliminate and thoroughly detox from all the harmful chemicals resulting from genetically modified foods.
This is a fact; it takes tons of herbicides to grow the GMO crops that end up in the world’s food supply which are also found in the food fed to the animals we eat. It has been revealed it takes hundreds of thousands of tons of herbicides! All that poison doesn’t just magically disappear. It ends up in and on our food, in and on our soil and leached into our water.
Monsanto is a chemical company generally found at the forefront of the GMO controversy. Glyphosate, the key ingredient in it’s Roundup, a popular herbicide, is the most heavily used herbicide on GMO crops. Yearly U.S. farmers use over 88,000 tons of glyphosate. That amounts to 580,000 tons of glyphosate dumped onto our food, soil and water yearly. The bad news is it’s on the increase. Currently studies indicate that glyphosate is causing chronic, long-term health problems for all of us, especially for our children. In the words of one scientist, the negative impact of glyphosate residues found in the Western diet “ . . . is insidious and manifests slowly over time, as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body.” Alarmingly, the FDA keeps raising the limits for how much glyphosate is allowed to remain on your fruits and vegetables. Also the USDA has opened the door for using even greater amounts of glyphosate by approving a new glyphosate-resistant canola, the first of several new glyphosate-resistant crops, to be deregulated under a new, speedier review process. The system is rigged.
These GMO toxins and other topical and environmental poisons gain entry into our bodies via the lungs, from food, absorbed by skin or even through a new mother to her fetus. It is safe to say we are all in a state of complete toxic overload. Small exposure from many daily toxins eventually incapacitate our ability to detox. As we accumulate deadly toxins our immune systems weaken and we become ill sometimes with deadly consequences.
So what is the solution to toxic overload? I really try to eat organic, avoiding as many GMO grown foods as possible and I take a Far Infrared sauna five out of seven days a week. The use of a Far Infrared sauna is by far the easiest and most pleasurable way to accomplish a thorough detox.
There is a layer of fat and oil that exists just below the surface of our skin. The Far Infrared light within the sauna resonates with the water molecules, in our bodies, within these fat cells. This energetic activation of the water molecule stimulates the fat cells to excrete toxins. These toxins will be released through the skin’s sweat glands as a result of the high temperature from the sauna. As sweat and oil are released, the toxins dispersed within them are secreted as well. After a shower or bath these toxins are then washed off our body, the toxic load on our body is lowered and cellular health improves. Our body’s oil glands help release oil-soluble toxins that the body would otherwise have a difficult time eliminating. We live in a world filled with oil-soluble toxins such as the GMO herbicides, gasoline, solvents, pesticides, ingredients in toothpaste and all sorts of personal care products. Our bodies are simply not equipped to dispose of these efficiently. The longer the skin and organs are heated, by the Far Infrared heat, the more oil-soluble toxins are released.
Knowledge is power so it would be best to always inform yourself about what you are ingesting, use of GMO’s on what you are serving yourselves and your family and constantly being aware of the ingredients they are composed of. Choose non-GMO ingredients, preferably organic. Use products made from botanicals, oils and salts first. Once you find the foods and products that suit you and you feel they are safe by all means stick with them. Additionally take a daily Far Infrared sauna as many days of the week as possible. There is simply no better avenue for overall and complete detoxification. Let go of those GMO’s!
