The Importance of Internal Cleansing and Heavy Metal Chelation in our Industrial World
By Life-Flo Health Writers
Edited by Christine Dreher, CCN, CCH

Environmental Pollution - IT’S A TOXIC WORLD

Because of this industrialized world that we live in, we are exposed to thousands of pounds of chemicals and contaminates, every single day! They are in the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink. It’s true that our bodies have an internal detoxification system from the liver, gastrointestinal tract, gallbladder, skin, lymph and kidneys, and they do an incredible job considering all the environmental toxins. However, with all the toxins around us, it is too big a challenge for the body to be left on it’s own without support. ENVIRONMENT HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY MORE POLLUTED. THERE ARE NOW OVER This influx of chemical products translates to billions upon billions of pounds of toxins being released into the environment, and some of these toxins will eventually find their way into our bodies. There are toxic substances in our homes, in our workplaces, in our foods, in our water and in the air we breathe.

Most of the technological advances associated with these chemicals are supposed to be improving our lives; in reality, some of these advances are creating unhealthy conditions within us. Drugstores are filled with thousands of synthetic over-the-counter and prescription drugs. Supermarkets have over 40,000 food products with preservatives, artificial flavors and colors of every description. The food we eat and the water we drink are full of pesticides and herbicides. The hormones used to raise livestock that becomes our food also cause new health issues that are only now being recognized. Recent research has shown that allergies, inflammation, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and more can be traced to chemicals and toxic substances in our food. No matter how careful we are, daily exposure to toxins is inevitable. No matter how careful we are, daily exposure to toxins is inevitable. These toxins eventually find their way into our bodies, from our air, food and water supplies.


Most crops are grown with pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers and fungicides. Residues from cancer causing chemicals are found in: grains, cereals, fruits and vegetables. Farm animals are given hormone supplements, antibiotics, and other drugs to promote growth and prevent infections.

The water we drink from cities across the U.S. has been found to contain:

  • Insect repellant
  • Antibiotics
  • Hormones from birth control pills
  • Perfume
  • Sunscreen
  • Chemo therapy drugs
  • Cocaine
  • Caffeine
  • Heroin
  • Pesticides

Note from Christine:

See the article “The Quality of our Drinking Water” for more information about the purity of your drinking water.

The air we breathe in each day has:

  • Exhaust from cars, trucks and buses.
  • Smoke from coal, oil, fuel powered plants and factories.
  • Residue from dry cleaning chemicals.

Some of the health consequences of these toxins can include:

  • Cancer
  • Heart Disease
  • Asthma
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Leukemia



A toxin is any compound that has a detrimental effect on cell function or structure. Some toxins cause minimal negative effects, while others can cause severe effects or even death.


Heavy Metals - These include lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel and aluminum. Heavy metals tend to accumulate in vital organs, often disrupting their function.

Liver Toxins - These include drugs, alcohol, solvents, formaldehyde, pesticides, herbicides and food additives. Our livers are usually overloaded with these toxins because they are so prevalent in our diet and in our environment.

Microbial Compounds - Toxins produced by bacteria and yeast in the digestive tract can be absorbed and transported throughout the body, significantly disrupting bodily functions. These toxins include toxic amines, toxic derivatives of bile, various carcinogenic substances, and endotoxins and exotoxins from bacteria.

By Products from Protein Metabolism - The kidneys are largely responsible for eliminating toxic waste products of protein metabolism (such as ammonia and urea). Excessive protein consumption and lack of water can inhibit proper kidney function.


Detoxification is the process whereby potentially harmful compounds are eliminated. The lungs, skin, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and liver are responsible for the detoxification process. Every day, these organs work vigorously to rid the body of toxins and maintain the health of trillions of cells.

Unfortunately, the excessive amount of toxins in today’s environment has placed such a burden on these organs that they can no longer function optimally. Levels of pesticides, herbicides, fossil fuel emissions, hydrocarbons and heavy metals have reached record proportions. In fact, the United States Environmental Protection Agency states that traces of toxic chemicals can now be found in nearly every American.

These toxic chemicals and heavy metals accumulate in fatty tissues throughout the body—underneath the skin, in and around the organ systems, and even in the brain. Research even suggests that the accumulation of aluminum in the body is linked to Alzheimer’s disease, the most common type of dementia in seniors.


There are six major bodily systems that store toxins and can be cleansed of toxins in the detoxification process.

  • THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM - Lungs, bronchial tubes, throat, sinuses and nose.
  • THE GASTROINTESTINAL SYSTEM - Gallbladder (bile), colon and small intestine.
  • THE URINARY SYSTEM - Kidneys and bladder.
  • THE SKIN - Sweat and sebaceous glands.
  • THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM - Lymph channels and lymph nodes.


The body has an innate ability to heal itself. Nature has given us the tools and the adaptive processes to correct for various natural aberrations we may encounter. Unfortunately, not even nature could have predicted our need to cope with the thousands of chemical substances we are exposed to daily. This toxic overload has reduced the liver’s ability to eliminate toxins, leading to many of the health problems we now encounter.

Let’s look at an analogy that can better illustrate this situation. Imagine that the body’s detoxification system is like the windshield wipers on an automobile. Now imagine that snow, rain and hail are toxic substances, and that a clear windshield is analogous to a body clear of toxins. When snow begins to fall, you turn your wipers on to clear the windshield. This, in essence, is detoxification. As more snow falls, you may have to increase the speed of the wipers to keep the windshield clear. But what happens if a storm occurs overnight and leaves two feet of snow on your windshield? No matter what speed you set your wipers to, the weight of the snow will be too much for the wipers to handle. The only way to get the wipers going again will be to first clear the snow with a scraper. In a similar way, when our bodies become overloaded with toxins, our natural detoxification system can’t remove all those toxins by itself. It needs a detoxification program to help the body restore optimal functionality.

Pathways for Detoxification


The liver maintains thousands of internal enzyme systems and produces a quart of bile daily to help digest fats. As the largest filter in the human body, the liver is considered the major organ of detoxification and filters half a gallon of blood per minute. Every chemical that enters our body, including drugs, pesticides, herbicides and hormones, is broken down by liver cells (hepatocytes).


DURING PHASE I DETOXIFICATION, toxic, fat-soluble chemicals (which can only dissolve in oily solutions, not water) are neutralized, and the process of making these chemicals (intermediates) water soluble and more chemically active begins.

DURING PHASE II DETOXIFICATION, intermediates are combined with minerals, amino acids and other endogenous com¬pounds. This process, known as conjugation, makes the entire molecule water soluble, thus allowing excretion via urine or bile.

When the liver becomes overburdened with toxins, fat-soluble toxins cannot be conjugated and remain in circulation, eventually becoming incorporated into fatty tissues.

Complete Body Cleanse Kit by Life-Flo

This 14-day Complete Body Cleanse Kit detoxification program is designed to help improve your health by dealing with the toxins that accumulate in your body. It gently enhances your body’s detoxification system while helping to rid your body of heavy metals. There are many different cleanses out in the market place. None are as complete in one box, with studied and trademarked ingredients, as Life-Flo’s new and improved Complete Body Cleanse kit.

The complete detoxification system of the Complete Body Cleanse Kit addresses the areas of greatest concern:

  1. Support a healthy colon by removing harmful toxins from the gastrointestinal tract.
  2. Support bile function in the liver to detoxify and remove chemicals and toxins from our circulatory system.
  3. Helping the body gently eliminate heavy metals by chelating heavy metals and removing them from the blood without being reabsorbed.

The Complete Body Cleanse kit can help improve your overall health and energy levels including:

  • Skin Health
  • Increase Your Energy - The liver has the second highest energy consumption, so by improving liver function, energy is restored.
  • Promote Emotional Well-Being -The liver conjugates (packages) many hormones in the body. When hormones are incompletely or improperly conjugated, all sorts of chemicals get released that can detrimentally affect emotional well-being.


The Complete Body Cleanse Kit program includes everything you need to help “clear the wind¬shield” of your body’s detoxification system. There are three separate formula’s in the (Triple Action) all vegetarian, Complete Body Cleanse Kit, which includes: the Fiber Formula, Liver Cleanse Formula and Metal Cleanse Formula along with a booklet that outlines things to enhance your cleanse experience. You will be help¬ing your body by using the Complete Body Cleanse kit that is specifically designed to help you detoxify your body and improve your overall well-being.


Part 1: Fiber Formula

The Fiber Formula contains natural herbal ingredients and all-natural fibers that help provide nutritive support for healthy colon function. The fiber complex contains a combination of Psyllium husk, Oat Bran, Marshmallow, Peppermint, Guar gum and FOS.




Part 2: Liver Cleanse Formula

The Liver Cleanse formula provides nutritive support for optimum antioxidant levels in liver cells and support liver cell regeneration, bile flow and detoxification mechanisms. It contains specific nutrients that help support bile flow from the liver into the upper small intestines—a key for healthy detoxification. It includes the following liver cleansing herbs: Milk thistle phytosome, Burdock root, Boldo leaf, Artichoke leaf, Turmeric rhizome and Dandelion root.



Part 3: Metal Cleanse Formula

The Metal Cleanse formula contains nutrients that are intended to provide nutritive support for the liver’s ability to cleanse the body of unwanted substances. This formula also includes a proprietary chelation complex only available in this triple action detoxification program.

Components of the metal cleanse are called Ecoganic Chelation Compound. The first ingredient in Ecoganic is a modified non GMO citrus pectin found in the pulp and peel of citrus fruits. It is a soluble fiber that has been scientifically proven to break down cholesterol and plaque. Because of its low molecular weight it is easier for absorption into the bloodstream as it gently removes toxic heavy metals, environmental toxins and mold toxins.

The second powerful ingredient in Ecoganic is Alginate. This is a seaweed that is extracted from the walls of N. Pacific giant kelp. As this unique combination of Pectin and Alginate binds toxins and prevents re-absorption, it is an effective chelator of heavy metals, without removing essential minerals or nutrients. It is infused with cilantro and barley grass for enhanced results.

The Complete Body Cleanse Kit’s new metal cleanse chelation system has won the Nutritional Business Journal Product Merit Award, and was presented at the Scripps Annual Conference in California. It has been studied for the ability to bind to cadmium, lead, mercury and arsenic without reabsorbing back into the bloodstream.

Ecoganic was successfully used in removing lead from children ages 5-12 that were working in a battery making factory and had developed lead poisoning.

This Ecoganic Chelation Metal Cleanse should be taken on an empty stomach. Either a ½ hour before meals or 2 hours after. Although this is a great cleanse for any person, it is quite important for the population who might eat fish and or sushi often, to be sure that the stored mercury is chelated out. It is also great for people with high cholesterol levels and plaque buildup, and those who have mercury fillings in their mouth or if those fillings are being removed.


Our bodies are a miraculous living, breathing machine! And just like any machine, must be cleaned in order to function at its best. We certainly know that in order to maintain our cars, we need to change the oil and spark plugs and steam the engine, periodically. If we don’t keep up with its maintenance, the car will break down. Then we have a choice to buy a new one or trade it in, for a perkier one. This is not possible with the one and only body that we need to hum for 70, 80, 90 or 100 years. Although, we might like to, we cannot trade it in. But we can keep our rhythm and run at optimal levels by feeding our body healthy fuel (food, pure water and natural supplements) and regular internal cleansing of the colon, liver and heavy metal chelation with the Complete Body Cleanse kit.
