Detox Program

Therapeutic program against the toxic load

The price we have to pay due to the industrial and technological revolution is heavy: a polluted planet, which may even become non-habitable in the near future.

During the past century, the changes that took place in our macrocosmos had not occurred in billions of years of revolution. The planet was burdened, along with all its living beings and inhabitants. The quality of the atmosphere, water and foods has changed dramatically.

The price we have to pay is heavy. Chronic and Autoimmune diseases are decimating the human population, and they are the leading causes of death, at least in the Western world.

Thousands of chemicals, radiations, drugs, poisons, and toxins burden human beings, and as a set they are termed toxic burden.

Unable to hide or adapt as a species to all these fast environmental changes, these particles and chemical compounds invade our body and they are stored in the adipose tissue of our cells; the smallest unit of life.

They are acting cumulatively, and they underlie until a critical concentration level in terms of quantity of combinations among them is reached, when the resulting biochemical deterioration of the cell is so great that our immune system cannot face it anymore, and Disease starts to manifest. The time of onset, its durability, as well as the rate of accumulation differs among individuals.

Autoimmune diseases, heart conditions, chronic syndromes, hypertension, diabetes, cancer, hormonal disorders, chronic infections, systemic diseases, fertility disorders and dozens of other diseases are caused either because our organism attacks its own altered biochemical cells (cannibalism – Autoimmunity), or because of the accumulated insufficiency of nutrients due to “poor-toxic” foods, which impede proper burning, and eliminate the production of vital elements and hormones from our organism.

 

Removing the toxic load from the cell

There are many methods or treatments that are used to “de-tox” our organism. Some focus on reducing “free radicals”, others on limiting them, but none in removing radiation, heavy metals and any other toxic load at the cellular level.

Equally popular is the administration of food supplements, vitamins, trace elements, and minerals, to limit “free radicals” and strengthen the immune system.

This administration may be detrimental, since a vitamin or a mineral never works on its own. In case of insufficiency of certain elements, the body may deprive bones and other tissues from the elements that are insufficient so that to maintain life, resulting in artificial insufficiency.

A glaring example is the administration of Vitamin B and Calcium, which leads immediately to Vitamin C insufficiency. The reason is that a vitamin, which acts as an organic catalyst, facilitates the necessary reactions, while for some other chemical reactions where vitamins are also essential but not present.

The excessive increase of a vitamin or other elements, either because they were prescribed or because someone just decided to take supplements affect negatively cellular biochemistry, and thus the organism.

Minerals circulating in the blood are like switches that stimulate glands. Artificial insufficiency may occur in this case.

The concept of balanced diet, as opposed to diets or famous diet programs, which is included in the toxic load reduction program, does not require participants to change their eating habits, and the additional administration of nutrients is balanced in terms of doses.

A key in the program is Vitamin B3, also known as Niacin, which has the capacity to massively mobilize the “toxic load” that is stored in our cells.

 

During the program we exchange “bad” for “good” fat.

Toxic substances have the ability to be stored within the cell’s adipose tissue; the program makes sure that this fat quantity is exchanged with new fat, in the form of oil.

The individual does not lose weight, s/he just exchanges toxic fat with new. The administered oils are natural organic compounds, including basic structural elements required by our body; in addition, lecithin is also administered, which helps in the decomposition of “bad” fat, so that to facilitate its elimination.

Both during and after the completion of the program, participants observe progressively a clear improvement of their health status, apart from their senses, feelings and wellbeing.

It is actually a unique but also very demanding program, offering substantial elimination of toxic load by approximately 95% for those who follow it.

Each cell of our body is regenerated, energy levels are restored, and our immune system is at its best. Toxic burdens that cause the disease or just underlie until its onset have been eliminated.

 

 


Patient Views and Opinions:

“I can remember myself before starting the Detox program, I was all the time stressed and nervy, from the time I woke up in the morning. I wasn’t sleeping well, I was waking up tired. I felt my stomach bloating really easily, I was getting angry and nervous with everything around me, especially with people without wanting this, but without being able to control it either. So, when I found out about the Detox program and its effectiveness, I decided to try it out.

I won’t go into too much detail, I will just tell you its effects on me.

After many years I can now sleep normally, I don’t wake up tired, my well-being and energy have been greatly improved. I don’t suffer from stomach bloating anymore, I am not feelings stressed or nervy, no itching at all. After the completion of the program I drink 80% less alcohol, I am feeling very energetic and very well. Finally everything turned out much better than I thought.”

Andreas S.

“After the completion of the Detox program, I can say that, for me, it was a very important and energizing experience, both at physical and at mental level. A river flowed through each and every cell of my body and through all my emotional records; this was sometimes easy and relaxing, and others impetuous and painful, taking with it and expelling all the trash that was accumulating for years (radiation, anesthesia, trauma, negative thoughts). It healed hidden wounds, bringing up the internal power and the optimism that I need to move forward creatively and positively.

Georgia A.

“I believe that the program I followed was beneficial for me both from a physical and from a mental point of view. Moreover, it helped me to overcome by 80% my dermatologic problem.

Now I think more calmly, I feel calmer, and I act more calmly, while I also think and act more effectively. I could go into more detail, but I generally believe this is a personal experience for each individual.

Within this deranged world, in all aspects, the DETOX program is a mental and physical experience.

It is a great gift for each one of us.”

Varlamis G.

“As a person, I do not easily trust others, and generally I could say that I am inherently suspicious in anything new and innovative. However, I am ready for new experiences if it’s something that moves me. I don’t know if I’ve always been like that, or whether this is the result of my lifestyle; I don’t remember myself being different, but probably I was. Thus, when I started the DETOX program, I was quite suspicious and doubtful about what I was told and whether it would really work so well.

Some days it was like hell, other days were normal. I was feeling as I was an actor of a film, the film of my life, all my good and bad characteristics. But in the end I forgot my bad experiences, and I could only see my positive characteristics. It would be unfair to say that this suggests I only got rid of the toxins. I also got rid of situations and experiences that are difficult to describe on a piece of paper.

You should try it to understand what I mean. I had a short trip back in time, seeing clearly all my mistakes and achievements; I don’t regret for what I did in the past, but I will definitely regret it if I do again in the future what I used to do. I am pleased and happy that I will make a new beginning.”

G. Vasilis

“I wake up with no pain in my joints, arms, feet, waist and back… I wake up feeling great… with mental clarity, no headaches, dizziness and migraine, which used to make me dysfunctional. I am more determined, more courageous, feeling “younger” and willing to do things, try new fields… much more alive, ultimately.

I wish it wasn’t coming to the end!! It was an experience!!

I want to thank all of you, and I am sorry I was tiring in the beginning, with all my doubts and distrust.”

Sofia V.

From the first days, my reactions were incredible, and they helped me to believe that I really needed it… all those that were getting out of me could have been proven harmful for my health.

During the first days I was quite tired, and I was absorbed by the program, mainly due to the intensity of reactions. Later on, though, I realized that all tension and nervousness had gone. I have more energy and vitality, and greater mental clarity. I feel released, carefree and more relaxed… and now I can sleep for 8 hours, something impossible for me during the past years.

I also feel that I am better in my social life and with the people surrounding me.

Thank you all so much for your support!”

Georgios G.

In addition, a substantial proportion of participants had respiratory abnormalities on spirometry. This preliminary analysis is consistent with earlier reports from WTC screening programs conducted by FDNY (4,5), which documented a substantial proportion of respiratory symptoms in emergency response workers.
