The elimination of poisons and toxic waste is imperative for vibrant health, to promote anti-aging and in providing longevity in the human organism. These specialized organ systems collectively provide hygiene in the human organism. Once poisons and toxic wastes have been systematically processed and eliminated, the body then can dedicate time in repairing and fine tuning other organs and systems, whereby enhancing one’s health and sense of wellbeing.
There are multiple specialized organ / systems of elimination in the human organism. They consist of the lungs, the skin, the liver, the kidneys and the bowels. In addition to these interconnected organ systems, the immune and lymphatic systems also work together in formulating general responses as well as in providing specific responses for the optimal elimination of toxic waste.
Note that by having a practical understanding of the physiology which describes how these organ systerms work along with the application of healthful principles produces natural remedies which really help in eliminating disease.
1- The Respiratory System:
The Lungs facilitate a reduction of carbon dioxide in exchange for
oxygen in the human organism. Also dressing properly whereby allowing free movement of the shoulders and arms, this allows enhanced ventilation and perfusion. Exercising by taking deep breathing is also helpful in the process of elimination of not only carbon dioxide but also in the mobilization of phlem causing infection. Also by taking deep breaths, there is an increase in oxygenation of the tissues, whereby killing carcinogens causing cancer.
Breathing clean air is important for vibrant health. It has been postulated by Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg that cancer cannot survive in an oxygenated alkaline environment. It is known that in earths atmosphere, approximately 20.9% is Oxygen and 78% is made of Nitrogen.
The Bible tells us that we were made in the image and likeness of God and also with many similarities to plants. There are mind-body connections in the human organism. In order for there to be effective communication between what will vibrantly grow and develop best above the ground there must be an understanding of what minerals will need to be called up from below the ground. This fixed knowledge above and understanding below is dependent on the lifestyle we choose. When we choose to get out of a congested city and breathe clean air in the country, and eat legumes instead og meats, these choices enhance nitrogen fixation.
Note that nitrogen fixation does not occur in all plants. It is this intelligent communication found in angiosperms, created by our loving Maker that gives these plants dominion over all other plants.
2- The Skin:
The skin and appendages are known as the Integumentary System that is the largest organ system in the entire human organism. This specialized covering separates the inner systems, organs, tissues and cells from the outer environment which through it's channels facilitates the elimination of toxic waste.
The skin also is responsible for thermo-regulation in the human body. When the temperature get’s above normal, the pores open, whereby causing perspiration which hydrates this mantle and releases oils that also lubricate the skin. These two functions are interdependent on the intake of water and oils in the diet. However, when people drink coffee and or caffeinated beverages, this closes the pores causing an elevation in the core temperature and has a drying effect on the skin. Also, when people eat dairy products, this deposits animal fats that become solid in these appendages and reduces lubrication of the skin.
Most toxic wastes are either liqiud or are fat soluble, however, not all fats and not all liquids are the same. Let me give you two examples: If a person eats beef stew, the animal fats enter the body in a liquid form, but if one takes that same food and puts it in the refrigerator, the next day, upon removing it, the fat becomes marbled and is solid. Depending on the type of fats one ingests, either animal or vegetable fats are then stored in sebacious glands. When sebacious glands are filled with animal fats, because of their inherent character, they are unable to adequately lubricate the skin. Another example is that it is known that fast food is more prevalent as the pace in life speeds up. Instead of drinking water and eating an orange, people often choose to drink orange soda and other beverages. These bad habits play a major role in the development of chronic skin infections by reducing the elimination of toxic wastes from this major organ system.
