One of the common things I see with my clients is they have gone on the internet and determined that they have a toxin and this will work for that toxin based on symptomology - which is a place to start. The key issue is though, to detox the human body if you start with something in a straight detox and you haven’t opened up all the exits for the cleanse to come out, you will not detox. You will accomplish anything from nothing to getting sick, and you will be doing it in grand style. Usually at the rate of $100 a month or more. So the concept of using the electrodermal screening, to first verify the category of toxin and second noticing everything in the body and how it is interrelated to that toxin so we can figure out what is the necessary items that have to be accomplished before toxicity can be removed. This is the category they don’t teach on the internet. For my body it’s one way, for your body it’s another way. For your friend’s body, it's a third way. We have to have the right thing and the right combination at that moment to make it work right.

In assessing toxicity, the categories are very large. It could be some form of metals - there are very light metals, there are very heavy metals, there are very obscure metals. Each of which comes out of your body differently and can cause different stresses in doing so. It could be that you are dealing with some form of insecticide, pesticide, we’ll call them farm chemicals, fertilizers for that matter. And again, depending on where it is and what’s holding it in place or what’s blocking it, different ways of dealing with it are necessary. When it comes to airborne, it could be as simple as the smoke in the air from a western forest fire. It could be as bad as the neighbor just sprayed yard chemicals, but the idea being there are different things and different purposes to clean these things. And if you don’t have the full line on what you are doing, understanding what it is, where it is in the body, what it is affecting and how it is going to come out, you are not going to have a good detox. A general detox kit does not provide that.
