Ten Steps to Detoxification

After working with hundreds of people around the world concerning environmental poisoning, we developed our detoxification program. The New Leaf Detox programme is designed to remove toxins from body tissues and restore the nutrients. Modern medicine has led us to “take a pill for almost every current health symptom. This approach alone cannot cure disease as more and more people are personally discovering. If anything, we keep getting sicker until our bodies eventually give in to the condition.

Curing illness and degenerative diseases might be considered old-fashioned and ineffective compared to today’s high tech standards. However, our physical bodies have not changed over time, nor have the effects of a disease. Human beings must remember that the roots of disease and their cures are as old-fashioned as the body itself. This is the basis for the New Leaf detoxification program.

The most effective way to repair disease symptoms is by simply removing the underlying cause-modern man-made chemicals saturating our food supply, our water stores, our pharmaceuticals, and our living environments.

Our Detoxification Program not only improves your health can change your life forever. You can regain control of your life through our “Ten Basic Detoxification Steps.”

Before chemical exposure, if you begin preventative detoxification procedures, be prepared for your body to defend its immune system if chemical exposure occurs. Begin a chemical-free lifestyle today.

The Ten Detoxification Steps:

1.   Identify and remove the cause of your health symptoms
2.   Learn to ‘read’ your body. Begin recording any health changes
3.   Get a hair analysis
4.   Be happy with yourself
5.   Detoxify your body
6.   Restore depleted nutrients
7.   Exercise and get plenty of rest
8.   Eat 75% raw foods at every meal
9.   Drink water, water, water
10. Get control of your life

Step 1

Identify and remove the cause of your health symptoms.

Precisely remove all chemicals from your diet and environment immediately. Become aware of the chemical additives in all your foods. KNOW what is going into your body at all times. Do not cheat yourself.

We tell people to look for their body’s weakest link, which is usually a genetic weakness. This is where toxins will be “noticed” first, which is the lowest part of your physical make-up. Toxins like mercury or radiation will absorb within your weakest link first, breaking it down easier. Removing all chemicals from your diet and environment lets you can focus on strengthening your weaknesses.

 Purify your environment as much as possible. Remove any toxins from both inside and outside your body. Inspect your house and place of employment for:

  • Old pipes
  • Leaking insulation
  • Unsafe drinking water
  • Dusty air vents
  • Pesticides
  • Radon
  • Moulds
  • Chemicals upstream or upwind
  • Air quality
  • Toxic Metals
  • Leaky power sources
  • Read food labels

Most people first look at the price of a food product and then glance to see if it’s reduced-calorie or fat-free. Look for the natural content with the fewest ingredients instead. Minimize buying processed and packaged foods. Metals, such as inorganic aluminium, nickel, and toxic chemicals like methanol found in aspartame, are used to manufacture some foods. No one needs to eat these substances. The manufacturing and packaging of foods remove natural vitamins and minerals, too. Many times, artificial fillers are injected into foods to stretch profits. “Enrichment” is not the same to the body as “natural.” The purer the food, the fewer the ingredients.

Additives you want to avoid:

  • Aspartame
  • Autolyzed yeast
  • All food colourings
  • All hydrogenized and partially hydrogenized oils
  • Calcium caseinate
  • Gelatin
  • Glutamate
  • Glutamic acid
  • Hydrolyzed protein
  • Monopotassium glutamate
  • Monosodium glutamate
  • Sodium caseinate
  • Textured protein
  • Yeast extract

Do not overindulge, so you would not have to give up fast and convenient foods altogether. Just be aware of how much and often you “indulge” on them and minimize the chemicals you are eating. Be selective about the fast-food stops you make. And choose the better quality in all food choices. If you want to order a pizza, order one from an authentic Italian restaurant with natural ingredients.

Step 2

Learn to read your body and begin recording any health changes.

Do you remember the last time you really felt good? Think about when you first started feeling ill and when your first health symptoms occurred. Go backwards day-by-day, month-by-month, or year-by-year until you can stop at the point when you started feeling sick. This is where you start over. You may have been through a tough emotional time, or you might have been very ill with a high fever. But were you drinking diet colas or living downstream from a factory? So, pick up where you got off-track and start over at that point.

Aspartame Free

Once you have removed all chemicals from your diet and environment and read all your labels for hidden aspartame and other food chemicals. Begin to notice if your health symptoms disappear.

We do not recommend anyone stop their prescribed medications. We advised alternative ways to lessen dependency on medications that mask health symptoms rather than treat the cause of disease.

Take the time to read your body. Learn your limits, but notice if you have more energy when detoxing various body chemicals, or if you sleep better and have better dreams.

Note if you look and feel younger. Do you have more vigour and are you in better control of your life? Give yourself credit-you can control your life again, the natural way.

Step 3

Get a hair analysis

As we discovered through our personal disease recovery, we could not fight what I could not see. Hair analysis is the best ‘road map’ to see a history of what is going on inside your body. Drug and chemical residues within the body remain embedded in the protein of the hair as it grows. Drugs such as cocaine and heroin may not be detected in urine several days after use, yet these drugs will show up in a hair analysis months later. Hair has the advantage of long-term memory. It is a permanent record, like tree rings. A three-inch strand of hair will give a six-month history of what’s going on in the body since head hair grows at a rate of about a half an inch a month

I recommend everyone have at least one hair analysis in his or her lifetime to ‘see’ what your body is lacking or in need of. Hair analysis is the highest calibre of laboratory science a Certified Nutritionist or Doctor of Natural Medicine can use.

The hair holds an imprint of all vitamin and mineral levels in the body and reflects minute levels of toxins deposited in the tissues. As human beings become more polluted, hair analysis can detect specific toxins that have stored in the body. It’s a great diagnostic tool. Before taking any vitamin and mineral supplements, consult a certified nutritionist for your specific health needs. Every individual is different, and a hair analysis can identify personal nutritional needs. Hair analysis-the hair provides the best view as to what is within the body.

Many traditional medical doctors criticize the hair analysis as not being a respected diagnostic test for human beings measuring up to blood tests, urine tests, MRIs or CAT scans. But we believe their protests are sourced to their lack of nutritional education and background needed to interpret the hair tests properly. The key to any good lab analysis lies in its interpretation, and without a thorough background in nutrition and in the sources of disease, lab tests are less effective in long-term healing. You might witness this when you go to the doctor with alarming health symptoms, yet receive no answers to why you feel sick or alternative answers when the lab results show that there’s nothing there. They prescribe “medications” to help relieve your symptoms, but do not fix the underlying problem.

Step 4

Be happy with yourself, ask yourself WHY you are using:

  • Sugar-free diet products
  • Alcohol
  • Prescribed and over-the-counter medications
  • Have you had your old mercury fillings removed
  • How do you protect your health for the long term in the event of a nuclear attack
  • How long have you been refilling that prescription without question
  • When did you begin changing your diet from natural foods to an artificial chemical diet
  • Are you diabetic
  • Do you give sugar-free foods to your children because you think keeping them off sugar is better for them

These are important questions. At some point, anyone who depends on a chemical diet to solve their nutritional needs must have some rationale that artificial diets are not really healthy in the long run. You know that! If you are diabetic, there are natural diets and alternative sugar substitutes other than aspartame or sucrose available on the market. If your children are hyperactive, research the number of fake fats in their diets, food colourings and other chemicals they are exposed to, and determine if they are getting enough exercise. If you want to lose weight, how much exercise and rest do you really get each day?

What underlying issue may be keeping you from the good rationale

Back up and start over on how you perceive taking care of yourself. Your body is a tool, and like any instrument needed to complete a task, you must maintain that tool properly to keep it functioning efficiently. Do all you can do to protect your health by eating a natural and balanced diet beginning NOW. What goes into your body must be used to its fullest potential to secure long-term health and wellness.

And read! There is an abundance of information on nutrition and disease in public and university libraries dating as far back in time as you choose to probe. Good nutrition and emotional wellness is an art passed down from generation to generation. The causes of modern diseases are harder to identify today than ever before because of the abundance of chemicals flooding our food supply. As time marches forward, much information is forgotten. Turn back time, and remember wisdom from the past so the future can be filled with peace and health-and no chemicals.

Step 5

Detoxify your body

Just as an oil spill pollutes the ocean killing the sea life within, chemicals within your body pollute you and damage healthy cells.

Cleaning your body of toxic foods and environmental poisons is no different than restoring a polluted watercourse. The Detoxification Program is a combination of the finest vitamin supplements worldwide orchestrating the perfect tools to remove environmental and food toxins.

Complement the supplements with a whole foods diet as wholesome as possible, and minimize buying packaged food products with ingredient lists that resemble a chemistry book. What goes out is just as important as what goes in.

Nutritional diets are polluted with chemical toxins from manufactured metals, vaccinations, or foods, such as chlorine in sucrose and mercury in tuna. It is essential to remove these toxins as quickly and safely as possible Removing chemicals from the human body is a two-part process-cleansing from the chemicals permeating your tissues and eating right. Give your body a chance to accept healthy dietary changes by cleansing it first. Many times, removing toxic foreign substances from the body can be as simple as turning your diet around.

One of the most common questions I receive from people wanting to cleanse toxic chemicals: “How do I remove these chemicals from my body?” In the case of my Grave’s Disease, it’s not always so easy. This Ten Step Program! New Leaf Detox Resort is a premier, medically supervised facility in Koh Samui, Thailand.

Step 6

Restore depleted nutrients

When you walk into a vitamin store, there are thousands of bottles on the shelf and out of all those choices, how do you know what you need? The hair analysis specifies precisely which nutrients you are depleted in, and those are the vitamins to buy first for your special needs. Some vitamins are of lower quality these days and may contain toxic metals as fillers and have coatings hard for the stomach to digest, so research the various vitamin manufacturers for the best. 

Here’s a good rule of thumb: if you have to break your vitamins apart with a hammer, they are not a quality product. Natural supplements should be breakable with a slight snap between your fingers.

Food provides all living things with the basic requirements to furnish energy for daily activities. Just as a machine burns gasoline or coal for fuel, the human body burns food for fuel. It’s as simple as that. A machine converts its fuel into other forms of energy; the human body converts food into body energy. So why eat fake foods filled with chemicals instead of food bursting with natural nutrients? Think about this the next time you see someone sipping a diet cola while eating a fake-fat-free chunky bar for lunch or snack. And they wonder why they feel tired all the time and have health problems?

Beware of artificial “diets” and diet programs. Remember this fact: if you lose one pound of weight by starving yourself and eating “fake” foods, you lose approximately three-quarters of a pound of fat and one-quarter pound of lean muscle mass. However, if you lose one pound of body weight following a whole foods diet with regular exercise. You’ll lose approximately one and one-quarter pounds of fat. You’ll also and gain one-quarter pound of lean muscle. Lose weight by eating natural foods and exercising regularly! There’s no such thing as healthy dieting. Instead, adopt a healthy lifestyle. Balance your life. Purify your environment.

Some tips: 

Layout a variety of fresh snacks after school or work. My kids love it, and they eat it!

Snack on raw foods every day. Apples, oranges, and raw nuts in the shell I don’t believe animals gain weight from natural, healthy foods. Eat big meals early in the day. At night, your body processes what’s leftover. Try not to eat heavy food past five or six o’clock in the evening. For an evening snack, pop popcorn in cold-pressed seed oil with a bit of natural butter and sea salt, drink a fruit smoothie or enjoy a cup of herbal tea.

Step Seven:

Step 7

Exercise and get plenty of rest

Where you find diet colas, processed foods, televisions and computers, stale air and pollution, you’ll find people gaining weight and getting sick, and at younger and younger ages. “Modern” human beings don’t move their bodies sufficiently enough. Exercise alone can keep your weight down, yet exercise shouldn’t require you to join a fancy health spa and dedicate a half a day to an exercise program. Exercise means:

  • Walking or bicycling instead of taking the car
  • Climbing the stairs instead of riding the elevator
  • Walking the dog after work rather than sitting in front of the television
  • Children are running, jumping and playing less and less as today’s societies become more intense and technological.

Do exercise daily

Movement keeps the blood flowing, Blood carries nutrients and oxygen to the entire body, delivering life to every cell. Bodies need to keep moving!
Short bouts of exercise throughout the day were as effective as one long period in maintaining weight loss. And eating natural foods as opposed to fake foods with no nutrient value is rudimentary to a healthy exercise program.

And sleep? Sleep is nature’s way of putting yourself to rest while the body’s immune system comes in to “clean up” like the night-shift cleaning crew. Scientists have determined that after 5:00 P.M. the body is ready to stop eating and start processing what it was fed during the day. It can’t do this with a late-night meal, nor without the body shutting down to rest through sleep.

While you are asleep, the body works to repair, cleanse, eliminate all the ‘leftovers’, and strengthen the body organs and organ systems in preparation for the next day. For example, it has been determined that at 1:00 A.M.., the liver begins its daily repair and restoration. Each body organ and its supportive body systems take a turn if you will so that the immune system can focus on one specific organ at a time.

It takes approximately two hours for each organ to be dealt with. If you are not asleep, and even worse if you are eating at this time, the body can’t do what it needs to do efficiently. So you wake up tired, your organs are not rejuvenated, and you may not have eliminated excess body weight toxins or water weight. Your body may now be out of balance and will take care of this dilemma the following night. And the cycle begins again.

Step 8

Eat 75% raw foods at every meal

If there’s only time to grab quick food, keep lots of fresh vegetables, natural dry cheeses, whole-grain crackers, pickles, natural yogurts, Tofu, fruits and nuts, water and fresh juice on hand. You may have to shop more often because the “real stuff” spoils more quickly, but that’s because it’s loaded with enzymes and live nutrients that transfer energy to your cells. Raw, steamed, natural, and fresh! A nutritious quick meal. Plus, eat all you want. It is difficult to gain weight by eating only natural foods.

Think of your food plate as a “pie”-no, NOT an apple pie. Seventy-five per cent of that pie should be raw or steamed every meal. These ‘fundamental’ foods provide all the digestive enzymes the body needs, as well as the vitamins and minerals required to trigger the digestive chain reaction.

Basic nutrition does not need to be as complicated as food manufacturers and shrewd marketing departments make it out to be today. Remember that fat-free this and sugar-free that and all the modern-day food fads and diet crazes are really nothing but marketing campaigns.

Manufactured foods are filled with toxic fillers and preservatives and have lost their nutrient content, even though they claim to have “enriched” the foods by putting manmade vitamins back in before packaging. The required daily amounts of natural vitamins and minerals, amino acids, necessary sugars and fats, and proteins the body demands for fuel cannot be obtained through any source other than raw foods and natural supplements. Do not fool yourself.

Natural foods supply the fuel needed to stay healthy, to keep your body moving, and to stay mentally alert. Food converts into raw energy. All food passes through the same set of reactions, whether it’s fast food or a raw carrot. WHAT the food provides is the issue. Always try to eat 75% foods rich in natural nutrients instead of chemical fillers and toxic by-products.

The natural ability your human body possesses is on less a miracle to select substances from the foods you eat required to build flesh and blood, bones and teeth, and to regulate the countless processes driving respiration, circulation, metabolism, and digestion. Give your body what it needs to stay healthy-not sugar-free, fat-free, fake food chemicals, but 75% of each meal fresh, raw food bursting with nutrients.

Step 9

Drink plenty of water

Water is important in keeping the body strong. Approximately two-thirds of the adult human body is water-salt water. Humans drink fresh water, but we are actually saline. Simply taste a tear or a bead of sweat for its salt content. This is one reason why humans need to drink ample fresh water every day. It keeps the body’s salt concentrations low, easing stress on the kidneys and cardiovascular pathways. Plus, the average adult eliminates approximately eight cups of water a day by sweating, urinating, crying and salivating.

It is essential to replace what is lost. Drinking lots of water and sweating during exercise helps eliminate toxins, too. And one thing’s for sure, if you’ve been drinking diet colas or iced tea with Equal all day every day, you have NOT been giving your body enough water. And if you are exposed to environmental toxins or radiation, having your body saturated with water will eliminate those toxins more quickly and efficiently. So get into the habit of walking around with a bottle of water all day long. You’ll have more energy, feel better and feel full, and flush out toxins quickly.

Step 10

Be in control of your life

You must not neglect the fact that healing from a disease or illness takes faith, personal strength, and perseverance.

Be impeccable with your word – speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love. Do not take anything personally. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Do not take anything personally. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Do not make assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to expect what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

Always do your best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

As you recover from any chemical poisoning, your entire life will change as a result. You may experience a refreshed emotional outlook as a positive side effect of your lifestyle changes.
