The system uses water because up to 80% of our bodies are water, and water contains the electrical patterns necessary to convert a conventional electrical charge into energy that is compatible with your body. Thus, allowing your body to absorb the energy and rebalance itself.
How do toxins build up?
There are 500,000 different chemicals used to make, lubricate, clean, coat, wrap, and finish the products we use. Each year over 5,000 new chemical substances are invented. And while our bodies have complex systems that remove toxins, namely the lymphatic, skin, liver and kidneys, they are no match for this onslaught.
Heavy metals, minerals, synthetic chemicals and hormones, even human and animal wastes are in the water we drink, the foods we eat, the clothes we wear, the houses we live in, the air we breathe, and the cosmetics we use.
Cosmetics are currently below the radar when it comes to identifying toxins. TEA (triethanolamine), DEA (diethanolamine), and MEA (monoethanolamine) are commonly used in cosmetics in the USA. Their use is restricted in Europe as they are known carcinogens. Almost 50% of cosmetics containing ethoxylated surfactants were found to contain dioxane, a carcinogen. Most shampoos contain Sodium or Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, which caused eye damage, central nervous system depression, and even death to animals that were exposed to it.
The skin is the largest organ in our body and because it is permeable it easily absorbs toxins. The scalp is especially permeable to toxins. Consider the numbers of toxic chemicals put in your hair to color or bleach, shampoo, condition, and treat it.
Our bodies are bombarded by toxins.
In 1999 a noted author and activist, had his blood tested for 150 different commonly used chemicals. His blood had 84 synthetic compounds, including 13 different Dioxins, 31 different PCB's, DDT, lead, organochlorine pesticides, chlorine, and malathion, etc.
What waste products are expelled by the sweat glands in the feet?
Eccrine sweat is composed primarily of water with various salts, heavy metals and organic compounds in solution. It is a filtrate of plasma, a colorless hypotonic solution that includes sodium, chloride, potassium, urea, bicarbonate, ammonia, uric acid, phosphorus, fatty acids, and other metabolic wastes.
