What are toxins? How do toxins impact health?

Today’s environment contains thousands of chemicals, many of which are toxic to the human body. Exogenous toxins that are introduced or produced from outside the human body include air pollution, synthetic chemicals in food and water, bacteria, viruses, and allopathic drug residue.

Chemicals and other toxins are absorbed into the body through organs such as the skin, lungs, and gastrointestinal tract. The liver, kidneys, skin, mucous membranes and other organs then attempt to process and expel these substances.

Endogenous toxins are produced inside the body and come from lactic acid, adrenaline, histamine, antigen-antibody complexes, nutrient deficiencies, psychological stressors, and emotional traumas. Toxins constantly challenge cells, tissues, organs, hormones, the immune system, and other protective bodily mechanisms.

Homotoxicology views the cause of disease in the body as an accumulation of toxins. Disease results from a series of reactions initiated by the self-healing mechanism in the body to either eliminate the toxin or control its biological effects. Therefore, disease is either the physical body’s way of waging a defense in order to purge toxins, or an attempt of the organism to compensate if elimination is not possible.
