Toxin-Free 2018: Here’s How To Achieve It
The biggest polluter in the world is agriculture. Every time you eat, you choose your farmer. Your farmer is practicing either regenerative or destructive methods, and you give them permission to farm in the way they deem best. If you want to have a 2018 free from toxin, here are a few things I suggest you try:
1. Buy certified organic produce
The easiest way to avoid toxins is to eat only organically certified food. Did you know that conventionally produced kale will have up to 17 types of pesticides on it, while organic kale will have none? But please, don’t be fooled by labels that claim they are natural, wholesome or organic – unless the logo of certification is on the packaging. ere are many hassles that come with being certified organic (I have been working with organic certification bodies since 2009) and the costs are excessive, but it remains the only way you can trust the product inside the package.

2. Look for produce with the shortest shelf life.
Everything in nature degrades, and due to the demand from national retailers to prolong this process in produce as much as possible, suppliers feel pressured to denature their provisions with all sorts of chemicals – the most egregious example being the addition of nitrates and nitrites to processed meat. The links between cancer and the consumption of processed meat are linear. Therefore, aim to buy food that has the shortest shelf life.
3. Don’t buy any food with ingredients that your grandmother wouldn’t recognize
Our grandmothers knew what was in the food they ate. We cannot make the same claim, as very few people can honestly say they know what all the ingredients in their readymade meal are, for example. Any food that is a derivative of a whole food is to be avoided. Humans are designed to consume whole foods, free from toxins.
4. Say no to sugar
Sugar is a toxin – it’s that simple. It is eight times more addictive than cocaine, and while it may seem impossible to cut it out from your diet completely, it’s really not too difficult to find healthier substitutes, such as natural and raw honey, to satisfy your sugar cravings.
5. If you cannot pronounce it, don’t eat it.
Another sure way to avoid toxins is to avoid eating food with unpronounceable ingredients, as they are more than likely to be artificial. Artificially created ingredients are made with lots of chemicals and are parts of the whole. Just remember, we are designed to eat whole foods – not chemical derivatives.
6. Choose your water wisely
Most people don’t think about the fact that they drink more water than eat food to keep healthy. So, it is essential to focus on the cleanliness, mineral content and pH of the water you take in. The ideal pH of water should be 7.2, as this is slightly alkaline. If your drinking water is from the municipal system, it’s likely to have been treated with chemicals, so I suggest installing a charcoal filter and treating your water with UV before drinking. If you treat your water with reverse osmosis (RO), it is essential to demineralize it before drinking, as RO water will strip nutrients from your body. Spring water is best, but it must be tested too. To understand why spring water is best, you need to read Viktor Schauberger’s work.
Chelating agents, which can be found in certain natural foods, have the ability to detoxify the body of elements containing toxin that build up in major organs and blood vessels. They have specific organic molecules that are able to form specific bonds with metals and finally leave the body by passing through the kidneys and urinary system.
