Doctor Rogers is right on the mark with "Detoxify or Die"
Have you given much thought to the toxic environment in the world around you? As the industrial world has developed and advanced over the past hundred years, scientists have offered us new technologies-made possible from the use of increasingly complicated fabricated substances.
The residues from today's synthetic miracle products sink into our skins and settle in our cells. "Detoxify or Die," an important book by Sherry A. Rogers, M.D., talks about this dangerous world and how to keep healthy in it.
Once I discovered it, I was instantly hooked. Detoxify or Die, as well as another of Dr. Rogers' no-frills consumer education volumes called "Pain Free in 6 Weeks," puts in plain terms for the layman to understand both her theories and her suggested solutions.
Dr. Rogers' credentials are impeccable. She established a practice in family medicine in Syracuse, New York, in 1971. From there she went on to earn recognition as a Fellow of the American College of Allergy and Immunology as well as a Diplomat of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine. She has been devoted to the missions espoused by these organizations: Learning how man can best interact with his environment. This amazing research has resulted in some real possibilities for us.
More about the book: Detoxify or Die by Sherry Rogers
In the very first chapter of Detoxify or Die, Dr. Rogers teaches the reader about phthalates, which are used in the formulation of various plastics in order to render them more flexible and durable. They also add length to a product's life. You'll find them in everything from the coating on medication that protects your stomach, to most polyvinyl chloride products, to children's toys.
The problem with phthalates is that they do not bond completely with the plastics they are mixed with. They "outgas" from such everyday products as plastic wrap and styrene cups. Their chemical composition resembles that of certain hormones, and so they are potent environmental endocrine disruptors. They can interfere with human development and increase hormone-related cancers. When was the last time you chewed on an eraser? Bite that off and think about it.
Dr. Rogers rebuts claims made by the chemical and food industries that we are not harmed by these emissions because they are so minute.
The problem, Dr. Rogers explains in Detoxify or Die, is that phthalates bioaccumulate in our tissues. We have no method to effectively detoxify ourselves of these residues and gases that we inhale and digest on a daily basis.
Recommended detoxification methods - The infrared sauna
In Detoxify or Die, you will learn about her recommended methods for ridding ourselves of these poisons that have taken root at the cellular level. I was captivated by all her ideas, from her "detox cocktail" and other methods, including her opinion of Far Infrared Sauna (FIR) therapy.
I immediately related to the passage in which Dr. Rogers talks about her early hesitation to recommend the FIR sauna because of its expense. In "Detoxify or Die" she explains she was seeking treatments that were natural and could be used at home without being expensive, high tech solutions. However, as she studied the lifelong incapacitation caused by diseases she came to realize that the use of FIR sauna therapy presents a cheap alternative!
Have you been affected by any of the chronic pain syndromes or chronic fatigue? Perhaps you know someone in your family who has suffered from heart disease, fibromyalgia, migraines, chemical sensitivity, or cancer. Even Alzheimer's disease is related to phthalate toxicity.
Add up the money you've wasted visiting various doctors in order to be diagnosed. Don't forget the time you've taken off work to go to various clinics. Now, consider the cost of just one-year's worth of prescriptions. Those costs alone will pay for an infrared sauna.
But the sauna won't run out or expire, like your medications. Once you buy a sauna, you will always have it, available to use forever. The whole family can use it. That is so important, because the manufacturers of the world will never run out of ways to poison us.
Dr. Rogers explains that this generation is more inundated by chemicals than any other generation, ever. From an epidemiological standpoint, we must learn to adapt to this environment. People have developed disorders because of the unnatural toxins accumulated in their cells, tissues, organs, and bloodstreams. If we don't find ways to unload these chemicals, we become sick.
Most doctors are under-educated in methods for detoxifying from chemical excess. All they can do is shake their heads and prescribe a pill to treat a symptom. Dr. Rogers points out that normally people do not become ill because they lack drugs! Plus, think of the drugs you've paid for and then dutifully taken, and they didn't really work. We need to find a way to cure our symptoms without medications.
The sauna not only provides a primary cure for your current medical problems-it also frees you from all the costs associated with biotoxicity. You will no longer be paying for doctor visits and medications. You won't be dealing with side effects from pills that are, incidentally, probably coated with phthalates in some form.
You'll find that Sherry Rogers' plan makes sense: You need to boost your immune system and improve your body's ability to detoxify effectively. For starters, you can just say no to trans fats. You can drink detox cocktails, and you can experience detoxifying enemas such as hydrocolon therapy. You can cleanse from deep within your pores with the far infrared sauna.
There are people, Dr. Rogers tells us, who suffer constant ailments with "mystery" symptoms that baffle their physicians. It's possible that they suffer from a lifetime of toxins accumulated within the layer of body fat, both beneath the skin as well as the visceral fat that's wrapped around vital organs. We are bombarded by pesticides, plastics, cadmium, mercury, and other harmful substances.
From this book, you will learn everything you need to know to diagnose your ailments. You will learn how to eliminate these residues from your body. Prepare to perspire, however-because safe FIR sauna therapy is one of the very best ways to cleanse yourself of the most dangerous toxins.
