Signs Your Body is Too Toxic to Work Properly
The man-made chemical toxicity syndrome
There are countless signs, as well as symptoms, of toxic overload of the human body. Moreover, why not? Human beings are overloaded with hundreds, if not thousands, of synthetic, noxious substances, and all such substances interfere with normal, healthy metabolism. No doubt, people are under siege. It is bad enough that in the normal metabolic processes the body produces potentially poisonous/injurious substances. Add to this the endless number of man-made chemicals that are causing the contamination of human bodies and it is easy to realize that, in fact, our bodies are fully overwhelmed.
Yet, why wouldn’t this happen? The exposure is from every realm: water, food, air, direct contact, and more. As a result, the body readily becomes overcome by toxic chemicals, which serve no good purpose and only cause great impairment in normal physiology. The chemicals block the function of human cells and ultimate cause their premature death. What could be more horrific, more terminally corrupt, than that?
Scientific studies have demonstrated the degree of this corruption. In one study conducted at New York’s Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in collaboration with the Environmental Working Group blood and urine of nine volunteers was tested for the existence of toxins. On average some 90 noxious chemicals and pollutants were found in the volunteers, the majority of which are documented carcinogens. Many of the found chemicals are also proven teratogens, that is inducers of birth defects, while still others are potent neurotoxins. Here is the most incredible part. None of the people tested worked directly with chemicals or live near chemical/industrial plants.
Said the lead coordinator of the study, J. Houlihan, “I expected to find many different chemicals, but to actually see the numbers roll out that show that one person has 100 chemicals in their blood at one time; it’s pretty powerful.”
It’s beyond powerful and is, rather, exceedingly disconcerting. All such chemicals cause great disruption of human metabolism, having negative effects on all cells and organs of the body, particularly those of a high metabolic rate such as the nerves, brain, endocrine glands, liver, and kidneys. Also, the skin, a clearance system for the ridding of poisons from the body, will be negatively effected.
Environmental Working Group was also responsible for a previous study demonstrating intoxication of the developing infant with man-made chemicals. In the evaluation, done on minority children, as many as 232 potentially deadly chemicals were found in cord blood, meaning that the infants had been all along exposed to the chemicals. The noxious substances included bisphenol, synthetic estrogen, and airline fuel (hydrazine). All such chemicals are potent carcinogens as well as agents capable of corrupting normal sexual development.
There are no regulations in place to protect the people. Corrupt as it is the US government and/or its propped up, compromised agencies have approved some 90, 000 toxic chemicals for industrial or agri-farm use, the pesticide/herbicide approvals amounting to some 20,000 chemicals alone.
Some 4 billion pounds? Much of that poundage can be found lodged within the human body.
Clearly, the toxic chemical burden is great beyond comprehension. Consider the vast intoxication as a result of pesticide and herbicide exposure as well as consumption. Who can possibly quantify it? In fact, all that can be done is to avoid these exceedingly toxic chemicals by making sound choices regarding food, beverages, and water. Furthermore, the use of household and personal care items laced with noxious chemicals should be curtailed.
Certain foods are reliably tainted by pesticides and herbicides, notably commercial strawberries, celery, peaches, red peppers, nectarines, apples, blueberries, among others. All such foods should be avoided like the plague. People can become violently ill by consuming such foods when laced with potentially deadly pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides:
The world must send growers a message and absolutely refuse to purchase the heavily tainted foods on the “worst” list, that is unless they are organically grown. The burden is vast, yet it is greatly complicated by yet another toxic burden, that of GMOs.
All such noxious burdens place great stress on the body systems, particularly the nervous and endocrine systems, along with the immune system. Yet, the systems of detoxification are also overwhelmed by this onslaught, as is the cardiovascular system and the skin. Through its greedy, in fact, criminal-like activities, modern humankind has fully destroyed the potential for the ‘good life’ on this earth: for countless people.
One particularly sensitive system to toxic chemical exposure or ingestion is the adrenal glands. Rapidly, these glands become overwhelmed as a result of man-made poisons. Adrenal exhaustion is a common consequence of chronic toxin exposure.
It must also be noted just where the toxins accumulate. Most of these man-made poisons are fat soluble and thus readily accumulate in the adipose tissue as well as within the brain. Also, these chemicals may trapped in the liver as well as the kidneys, in many cases also heavily stored in the bone.
Yet, once again, what are the signs and symptoms of chronic chemical poisoning? How does the body manifest when it is corrupted by metabolic poisons? In fact, there are signs and symptoms which reliably point to chemical intoxication. These signals are sufficiently vague that few if any physicians make the tie to the real source, which is corruption of the metabolic, nutritional, and energetic systems of the body by long-term, chronic chemical exposure. Take this test to determine if you are suffering from whole body poisoning from man-made synthetic chemicals:

Your score ___________
1 to 10 points: This is evidence of surely a degree of chemical intoxication. It is likely that your body is coping relatively well to the chemical overload. Even so, it would be advisable to do a cleanse to remove the chemical burden from the body.
11 to 20 points: There is a significant degree of chemical overload in the body. It would be highly advisable to do a purge and cleanse the chemical burden from the body. This must be achieved through the use of remote-source, wild, raw cleansing agents based upon raw, wild greens and raw, wild berries, among other detoxification supplements.
21 to 30 points: This represents severe chemical overload of the body. A purge of such chemicals is essential for the restoration of optimal health. This must be achieved through the use of remote-source, wild, raw cleansing agents based upon raw, wild greens and raw, wild berries, among other detoxification supplements. Focus should be made on reducing the risks for exposure to man-made chemicals; in particular, the consumption of commercially grown fruits and vegetables should be curtailed in favor of chemical-free and/or organic sources.
31 to 41 points: There can be no doubt at this level that there is massive chemical intoxication of the body. This will likely head to potentially life-threatening diseases, including heart disease, heart attack, stroke, cancer, and neurological disorders. All efforts must be made to rectify this by purging noxious, toxic man-made chemicals from the body. This must be achieved through the use of remote-source, wild, raw cleansing agents based upon raw, wild greens and raw, wild berries, among other detoxification supplements. Furthermore, every effort must be made to reduce exposure and consumption of man-made poisons. Regarding consumption, the intake of commercially grown fruits and vegetables should be curtailed in favor of chemical-free and/or organic sources..
42 to 53 points: There can be no doubt at this level that there is massive chemical intoxication of the body. This will likely head to potentially life-threatening diseases, including heart disease, high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and neurological disorders. All efforts must be made to rectify this by purging noxious, toxic man-made chemicals from the body. This must be achieved through the use of remote-source, wild, raw cleansing agents based upon raw, wild greens and raw, wild berries, among other detoxification supplements. Furthermore, every effort must be made to reduce exposure and consumption of man-made poisons. Regarding consumption, the intake of commercially grown fruits and vegetables should be curtailed in favor of chemical-free and/or organic sources. .
54 and above: It is hard to believe that anyone could score this high on the toxic chemical overload scale and still be alive. The health must be severely compromised at this level. Unless the toxicity is reversed there is a high likelihood for the development of serious and life-threatening diseases, including high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes, lupus, scleroderma, and neurological disorders, particularly Parkinson’s disease, MS, and ALS. A monumental effort must be made to fully purge the toxic chemical burden from the body. This must be achieved through the use of remote-source, wild, raw cleansing agents based upon raw, wild greens and raw, wild berries, among other detoxification supplements. Furthermore, every effort must be made to reduce exposure and consumption of man-made poisons. Regarding consumption, the intake of commercially grown fruits and vegetables should be curtailed in favor of chemical-free and/or organic sources.
“What to do about it”
The “What to do” is based on a novel precept, which is to consume potent, natural complexes with purging powers against the noxious chemicals. Here is the key concept. The purging agents must be themselves relatively free of man-made pollutants so as to draw out the toxins. Or, the purging agents must have powerful mechanisms of action in order to:
- purge toxins from the tissues by acting on the natural detoxification pathways in the liver, gallbladder, and kidneys
- bind the toxins, so they can be transported out of the body through the stool and urine as well as through sweat
- neutralize the toxins, so they can be more readily detoxified by the body’s innate mechanisms
The ultimate purging/cleansing agents are those made from wild sources. Moreover, it is not merely the fact that they are wild that is crucial but they also must be raw. Non-wild purging agents are also invaluable, for instance, extra virgin olive oil and black seed oil. There is also the issue of sour complexes rich in organic acids such as malic, tannic, citric, ascorbic, and gallic acids. All such complexes are efficient chemical detoxification agents and also act powerfully in the purging of heavy metals. Such acids are found in certain wild foods, such as Rhus coriaria and wild grapes, and also in a multitude of berries as well as in sour citrus fruit.
Other binding agents include zeolite, chorella, bentonite clay, coriander oil, and sodium alginate, also wild kelp. There is available a complex of all such binding agents as capsules. This is an ideal addition to the detoxification regimen for the removal of large, toxic molecules and also heavy metals. Apparently, this particular supplement is not available for sale in California (Prop 65 considerations, a largely ludicrous law installed for the benefit of government agencies).
Foods do help, although the list is relatively few, since farm-raised food is relatively impotent in purging power compared to wild-source material. Even so, the top foods or food concentrates which aid in the detoxification process are:
- organic dandelion leaves
- organic burdock root
- organic lemon
- organic, raw apple cider vinegar
- raw onion and/or garlic
- extra virgin olive oil
- organic, raw turmeric
- organic, raw ginger
- organic, raw fennel
NOTE: a juice can be made of many of these ingredients as a detox aid.
Regarding supplements, there are relatively few which have great detoxification powers. Here, the system of effective detoxification is based on wild, raw greens extracts, wild, raw berries extracts, and certain wild greens fortified with spice oils. These supplements include the following:
- a total body purging agent consisting of oils of black seed and extra virgin olive oil with wild, raw nettles, fireweed, burdock, and dandelion, along with wild, raw cranberry; this is one of the most aggressive chemical detoxification formulas known
- wild, raw dandelion greens with wild, raw root: a most potent cleansing agent, which is also gentle on the system
- wild, raw multiple berries complex as drops under the tongue or an eight-ounce beverage (known as Super-5-Berries, a most radical system for health improvement, remote-source, 100% wild)
- wild, raw natural vitamin C complex consisting of wild, raw camu camu, wild, raw acerola, and raw rose hips powders
- red sour grape powder made from pulverized, mountain-grown sour grapes
This five-formula system is exceedingly powerful. It will cause a pulling of toxins out of the tissues, then the dumping/cleansing of the accumulated poisons through the systems of elimination. Even so, for some people the top three formulas are sufficient to achieve a powerful cleanse. For a super master cleanse all five formulas should be used, along with a detox juice made with organic fennel, turmeric, ginger, and dandelion leaves.
On occasion, when a large volume of toxins are liberated, people can feel uncomfortable, a flu-like sensation. This disappears, usually as soon as the person urinates or defecates. Even so, none of these purges are systems will upset a person’s lifestyle. There is no need to be paranoid about needing to be near a restroom. In fact, the only considerable ‘side-effect’ is a dramatic improvement in overall health. Of course, this will happen. What else could be expected from the purging and cleansing from the body of harsh, destructive, man-made toxins?
Thanks for making more and more info available Dr. Cass.
I have have been taking and using wild grown Chaga and Oregano oils and leaves since watching your vids on youtube and the family is ten fold healthier.
Soon to buy your books. :)
Hi, what have been your experiences with Oregano Oil? Have you found ways to “hide” it or ingest it with something that makes it easier to take?
Hi, I have been told that my MTHFR along with not ever being able to have thyroid meds work for me, I can not eliminate properly.( Bowel movements) My thyroid was removed in 04 and I have been chronic constipated since. If one can not eliminate properly how can the purge help?
Dear Dr. Ingram,
I saw you for the first time on the program of Dr. Ward Bond. I thought you were great!!! I learn a lot from you. I know I can still learn a lot more. I would really like to meet you in person & I wouldn’t mind going with you on the field trips so I can learn more first hand. I’ve always been a health fanatic. So when I come across someone like you it makes me want to learn more. I think you have some fantastic products & I hope very soon to be able to purchase all of them.
Hope to met one day in person in the very near future.
A friend in health,
P.S. I don’t know what to put in the space website above so I’m going to put Dr. Ward Bond’s website.
You can email Dr. Ingram directly at [email protected]
That would be great. It would be great if we could all go out and learn about wild nature together.
I met you recently at your seminar in Spring Grove, Pa. To say that I was impressed is putting it mildly. You gave me personal attention and a list of what to take and do, I am following it. My question is regarding my youngest daughter age 27. She was diagnosed with P.O.T.S. (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) at age 12, she has hyper mobile joints, hair loss, anxiety, G.E.R.D,chronic fatigue. and a whole bunch of other symptoms. Blood tests revealed she has a “thyroid antibody” but her thyroid test numbers always come back within “normal range”. She was born 1 month early by C-section and had projectile vomiting and required ear tubes at age 10 months due to constant ear infections, she was also put on a year long prescription of antibiotics at age 10 months. The Doctors think her P.O.T.S. was due to having Mononucleosis around age 9-12 years old. We had no idea she ever had this but the blood tests at age 12 showed positive for a past episode. What do you suggest she do to bring back her health and vitality? Can her P.O.T.S. and thyroid “antibody” be eradicated? I have absolutely no faith in modern medicine as they have failed her and myself miserably. I do believe in what you are doing and I thank you for any help you can offer..
Any info on ingesting Oregano Oil would be appreciated. Dosage? How long to take? Once a day? More often? How do you know it’s working? Etc.
