No other generation before ours has been exposed to as many man-made chemicals and toxic substances as we are. The air we breathe is polluted, the water we drink is not clean, the food we eat is processed, the food for our soul is provided by a sensationalistic media, our life style is sedentary, our body cells lack oxygen, vitamins, minerals and enzymes, our organs of detoxification and excretion are overwhelmed and our body is overloaded with waste products and toxic metabolites which render it vulnerable to all sorts of bacteria and viruses. How do we survive?
The human body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms, which are self-healing. A healthy body is capable of eliminating the toxic substances generated by its normal functioning and imposed on it by an unnatural life style. If the production of toxic metabolites and the ingestion of toxic substances overwhelms the organs of detoxification and excretion, the body stores these substances in the connective tissues which become impeded in their important tasks of regulation and defense. Malaise results and signals us that the body is trying to get rid of toxins and needs help to help itself. Our first aid to the body is to relieve it from the burden of waste and toxic substances so that its regulatory self-healing mechanisms can function again.
Experience has taught us that an impairment of the basic regulatory processes can lead to the “regulatory freeze” which is typical in cancer. In this case, the body does not properly react to health challenges and the person only appears healthy. Cancer patients sometimes show no sign of illness for years before a tumor manifests.
Detoxification is a decisive step towards restoration of the body’s regulatory mechanisms and towards reversal of cancer cells to the behavior of normal cells. Normal cells are programmed to die when they have fulfilled their task. This programmed cell death is called apoptosis.
With all of our patients, whether they suffer from cancer or a chronic degenerative disease, every effort is made to improve the function of the organs of detoxification and excretion, such as the liver, kidneys, colon, lung, skin and lymph system by herbal preparations, supplementation of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, high fluid intake, enzyme therapy, lymph drainage, colon hydrotherapy, chelation therapy, enemas, glandular therapy, etc., according to individual needs.
The importance of detoxification becomes even more evident in the light of the following research findings:
- Microorganisms found to be contributory factors in chronic degenerative diseases and cancer, thrive in a toxic endogenous bodily environment.
- Cancer cells produce high amounts of toxins that inhibit immune functions, damage tissues, cause weight loss and other complications. The more cancer spreads, the bigger the load of toxins, which diminishes the possibility to control the progression of the disease.
- When cancer cells break down at a high rate due to chemotherapy and radiation, toxic products of tumor disintegration accumulate in the body. It is very important to assist the body in eliminating them. The success of these efforts may determine whether the therapeutic endeavors will be successful or not.
The treatment programs of the Issels Treatment Center take all these important issues into account, with the aim to enhance their efficacy.
