Did you know that there are more than 9 billion tons of plastics in our environment?
Plastic is probably everywhere in your life – but according to new research conducted in the very deepest parts of the ocean, that’s true even for the most remote tiny seafloor critters living almost 7 miles below the surface as well.
The tests, which were done on small shellfish found in deep-sea trenches across the Pacific Ocean, haven’t been published in a scientific journal yet and were conducted under the auspices of Sky Ocean Rescue, an anti-plastic pollution campaign run by a European media company. But this sort of finding has been expected for quite a while.
“These observations are the deepest possible record of microplastic occurrence and ingestion, indicating it is highly likely there are no marine ecosystems left that are not impacted by anthropogenic debris,” lead Researcher Alan Jamieson, a senior lecturer in marine ecology at Newcastle University, in the United Kingdom, said in a press release.
This is no surprise to me as on all new patients we check their bodies for plastic residues as well as hundreds of other environmental chemicals. These foreign materials get into our organ tissues causing hormone disruption, and into our brains causing all manner of problems with mood, sleep, perception and thinking.
Reducing plastic exposure is very important and getting it out of your body is mandatory. Stop using cellophane to wrap food, use non plastic containers for food and stop drinking water from plastic bottles. Make sure your detox systems are functional by cleaning up your gut, liver and kidneys. Do regular sauna to sweat out the residues.
Here at LifeWorks we are experts in detoxification and can help you get your body in much better shape by getting out plastic and other chemical residues. Our HOCATT ozone sauna is a very good way to do this. It makes your skin baby soft and detoxes the chemicals deep in your body to bring you energy and health.

Have a great week.

I want to say first and foremost, this is not an article to bash any human being on Earth. This article is to make you, the consumer, aware of some of the important governmental changes that have occurred in our Nation. With the toxic world we live in, we must stay ahead of the contaminants with active ways to keep our bodies pure, such as saunas, vitamins and supplements, exercise and good diet to name a few. This article is about some chemical bans that have been lifted, regulations that have changed and an assortment of these things that silently occur on a governmental level and what we, as well as our loved ones, need to be aware of.
At LifeWorks we strive to do only one thing: To help our patients achieve their optimum health.
Every person who works in our clinic is focused on that one outcome. Some who come to us are very ill, with life threatening conditions like cancer, Lyme, autoimmune disease or Alzheimer's. Others are struggling with diabetes, high blood pressure, fatigue or low hormones and want a better quality of life. No matter what, each person that we see is given an individual program to meet their needs and help their condition. We do not have a cookie cutter that we stamp our patients with. With this approach we get the best results of any clinic anywhere.
This year I am proud to say that we had our highest ever in number of people helped and that gives me the highest satisfaction and pleasure to let you know that. And it boosts my enthusiasm to do even better next year....
I used to love bread. According to the bible and dozens of other cultures it’s the staff of life. Pure golden wheat bread - smell the aroma of freshly toasted bread!
But alas, no more. I can't eat it. Makes me bloat and after a couple of days my joints hurt. This has been true for years.
Getting well will never happen with a toxic mouth. I preach this every day and have successes with very sick patients every day by making sure their mouth is healthy. In my experience, the most toxic thing in the mouth is a root canal tooth.
Almost all of them will show abscesses on CT scan. These are pockets of pus two inches from the brain and on a major nerve channel that goes right into the brain with no relay point.
Earlier this year there was a film crew from Australia that come to interview me for a movie on this subject. The movie maker was almost killed from the side effects of having a root canal done. This is the trailer for the upcoming movie. It is dramatic and very to the point. Please watch it. It will make you rethink dentistry.
