How Toxins Cause Disease

May 22, 2019

There are eight ways toxins damage our bodies:

  • Toxins poison enzymes so they don’t work properly
  • Toxins displace structural minerals, resulting in weaker bones
  • Damage to organs
  • Damage to DNA, which increase the rate of aging and degeneration
  • Toxins modify gene expression
  • Damage to cell membranes so they don’t respond properly
  • Toxins interfere with hormones and cause imbalances

Beauty From The Inside

Did you know that beauty on the outside starts with beauty on the inside? There are natural ways you can achieve this. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Drink plenty of water because water makes up about 70 percent of your body and a very large portion of your skin.
