In order for our automobiles to run in top shape, they require maintenance. We keep them up by changing the oil, getting new tires, replacing worn-out brakes, and washing them regularly.

Just like a car’s engine, our internal body can get “gunked up” by foreign toxic substances. The human bodily systems are not used to dealing with such a daily onslaught of certain substances coming from the air, water, food and products we use.

Ty Bollinger, of says, “We are exposed to more chemicals, toxins and radiation in our environment and in our daily lives than at any other time in human history. According to the Environmental Working Group, there are approximately 85,000 man-made chemicals approved for use in the U.S., and the number is growing.”

Insecticides and herbicides are created to kill life forms considered by many to be pests. Through run-off, being carried by the wind and with bioaccumulation, these chemicals are affecting the overall health of all beings, including mankind and the Earth that gives us life.

The root-cause of almost all diseases is an overload of toxins and chemicals that have accumulated in our bodies. Toxins are buried in our fat tissues and organs, and can contribute greatly to obesity, muscle and joint pain, brain disease, cancer and most of other chronic health conditions.

Our bodies’ internal systems of detoxing and elimination can get overwhelmed and not function properly. That is the time when we are at risk for a chronic illness to set in.

Ty Bollinger says that “most chronic illnesses are the result of years of toxic ‘sludge’ building up inside of us.”

By gently and systematically cleansing our inner detox systems and organs of elimination at least once a year, we can have more energy, less pain in the joints and lower back, and eliminate brain fog and chronic fatigue. Another big benefit of detoxing and cleansing is that as we work to eliminate the toxins, we also eliminate fat cells, which assists in weight loss.

I am happy to share with you a resource for what I consider the perfect detox program. My husband and I recently completed it, and both of us are feeling a lot more energetic and are sleeping better. My husband has way less joint pain, and I am much lighter with a feeling of well-being.

The detox program we used is a 26 Day Detox by Robyn Openshaw of I like it because it is designed so that the working person can accomplish it pretty easily, with a bit of advanced preparation.

There are two ways to access the 26 Day Detox. One is with a fully supported online detox program offered on The other way is to order the printed “26 Day Detox” manual from the website. I purchased the manual because I am familiar with cleansing, and there are recipes in it that I look at while in the kitchen. The manual is exceptionally well put together. I consider it one of the best investments I have ever made.

Clearing toxins from the body, removing mucous and congestion, eliminating build-up that impairs the function of arteries, lungs, kidneys, heart, liver, bowels and other bodily systems, will help us live free of pain and disease.

To your well-being and longevity!
