Whether due to poor nutrition, lack of exercise, or environmental toxins and allergens, our system can become overloaded with stored toxins, impeding the body's ability to function healthfully.The homeopathic preparation, Detox-Kit by BHI Heel, helps the body gently eliminate sequestered toxins.

When our system becomes overloaded with stored toxins, the bodies ability to function healthfully can be impeded. The ground matrix, the solution surrounding our cells that both feeds the cell and transports the byproduct of cellular metabolism away from the cell, can become overwhelmed by toxins. When this happens, the cell suffers.
   I equate it to a breakdown in curbside trash pick up. If we stopped service and continued to produce trash, our homes would become cluttered with refuse. Soon that refuse would spill over into the neighborhood and so on. That is a simplified statement of what can happen in our bodies.

When the ground matrix becomes overwhelmed with debris, the cell no longer gets proper nutrition and cannot eliminate its waste. Add to that poor nutrition, lack of exercise, and external bombardment of toxins like what may have taken place in the gulf with the challenges of the BP oil disaster of 2010 and you have a system in trouble.
   To keep our ground matrix healthy a diet rich in organic (when possible) vegetables, grains, fruits, and proteins is paramount. But if the ground matrix is already overwhelmed these nutrients may have difficulty reaching the cell. Exercise helps metabolism and is also important to keep the body healthy and the cells functioning properly. However, when the ground matrix is thick with toxins, exercise may challenge the system we are attempting to clean out due to the by products produced.

BHI Heel's Detox-Kit can help. It gently gets the three main cleansing systems back on track. Lymphomyosot® helps the lymphatic system. This system is in charge of feeding the cell and taking by-products of cellular metabolism away from the cell. The lymph system then connects to the blood system exchanging the waste for nutrients to return to the cell. Nux vomica-Homaccord® assists the liver. The liver is our filter for our blood. Berberis-Homaccord® helps the renal system. This is the system into which the blood dumps waste.

Detox-Kit slowly but effectively cleans the ground matrix so that the cells can communicate, breath, and metabolize better. When cell replication occurs, the cell has a better chance of replicating without degradation.
   As the gardener uses the winter to look over seed catalogues and plan for spring planting, summer is a perfect time to make plans for fall cleaning of our ground matrix. Revel in the bounty of fresh local food. When September comes, begin fall cleaning by eating healthy, exercising and using BHI Heel's Detox-Kit.

Should you be one of those who are inundated by local toxic challenges (like the Gulf oil disaster), use the Detox-Kit now to help your body eliminate stored toxins, thereby allowing your body to deal better with the present set of external toxins. Get plenty of rest, eat wholesome organic (if possible) fresh food, exercise.
   Find time to clear your mind and breathe deep from the area just below the navel. Energetically, this area is our central "sea of Ki" (Japanese word for energy). Breathing into here fortifies our life force. Breathing out from here moves that fortified life force throughout our energetic system. Breathing in this manner helps your body to release endorphins which are our own natural opiates. They are 500 times more powerful than morphine. You have the ability to release them with each breath.
   As is demonstrated to us by the symbol of yin and yang, this too shall pass. As bad as it is now, it will improve and be better. Somewhere in this disaster is a small amount of light in this seemingly dark period.

• If you never have or occasionally have these symptoms, you have a healthy to mostly healthy lifestyle. Seasonal BHI Heel Detox-Kit use is key to cleaning out the stores and maintaining health. Use for two weeks during Fall and then again in Spring cleaning.
• If you frequently have these symptoms and occasionally have severe effects, you need help now. Use Detox-Kit to synergistically clean out the ground matrix to allow cells to communicate better and work your way back to health. Use up the whole kit according to package instructions. While on the detox regimen, embrace life style changes such as exercise, healthy eating, and be sure to get adequate rest.
