Toxicity is not limited to the scope of food and chemicals. There is another kind of toxicity that is equally pervasive and has the same effect on health, although this effect is more difficult to measure. Toxic thoughts, toxic attitudes, anxiety, which is a byproduct of modern life, are all pollutants that negatively affect our consciousness and the functioning of our body. Although stress is not on the list of major threats to the environment and is not recognized by the majority of very busy doctors in hospitals as a serious health disorder, it represents the same toxin as chemicals in our food, water and air.
Stress is a toxin just like any harmful chemical from our food, water, and air.
Today, such a stream of information falls upon us every day, like never before in human history (even the television news reported by the speaker sitting in the studio is duplicated by a creeping line at the bottom of the screen. Our attention is literally divided). We are at any time available for communication by mobile phones, e-mail, faxes, and not being continuously in touch has become almost taboo.
We are always extremely busy, striving to make a brilliant career, make brilliant acquaintances, raise brilliant children, acquire a brilliant dwelling - the thirst for achievements has never been so great and did not force us to live in a state of constant tension. Because of this race, we almost do not pay attention to our body, which can suffer and fail without being noticed by us.
These unceasing, painful, terrible reflections prompted me to go on a self-healing journey. I managed to cope with allergies, overweight and irritable bowel syndrome, but my toxic thoughts did not give me rest and prompted me to get deeper into what was happening to me. The toxic food I used, the toxic daily routine I followed, and the toxic hospital environment, filled with fear and disappointment, in one of the most toxic cities in the world imposed unbelievable tribute to my body, and only when chest pain caused me by constant anxiety the thought that this might be a precursor of a heart attack, I began to search for another solution. My initial meditation experience gave me hope. I went to India.
Whatever I have achieved in calming my mind, this allows me to recognize in the complaints of my patients the same problems that once haunted me. Unproductive thinking rules us and controls our lives. We get bogged down not only in unhealthy eating habits that cause damage to our body and deprive it of its necessary energy, but also in continuous thoughts. They also require energy, exhausting the body and depleting the resources used for self-healing. I call the negative effects of stress “quantum toxins,” because they cannot be measured with medical devices. Stress finds many ways of manifestation in the body, behavior and appearance, affecting the style of nutrition, addiction and belief in his own ability (or inability) to overcome it. Quantum toxicity, without a doubt, is one of the greatest barriers to well-being.
How did this happen?
Toxic thoughts, toxic relationships, anxiety, which is a byproduct of modern life - all of these are pollutants that negatively affect the body’s mind and function
Quantum toxicity is not a new concept. Thousands of years before people invented preservatives, antibiotics, hormones, fertilizers, and many other chemicals, detoxification was a priority for some very influential people on our planet. Buddhism, one of the oldest spiritual teachings, was defined by the Buddha himself as a way of detoxification. My friend and teacher Robert Thurman, a professor at Columbia University and a specialist in Tibetan Buddhism, once explained this to me as follows:
“In the center of the Buddhist Wheel of life is a circle, and in it are three animals — a pig, a rooster, and a snake, holding each other by the tails. The pig, symbolizing illusion and ignorance, as if says: “I am the center of the Universe and the most important being in it, and everyone else is separate from me!” This deep conviction of the selfish being puts him in a position of confrontation with the Universe, in which it sooner or later be defeated. From this perspective, the creature wants to devour as much of the universe as possible, and this is called the greed that the rooster symbolizes. If it were possible, the creature would devour the entire Universe, in order not to fear it anymore. But the universe is infinite, and therefore this is impossible. So, from the same perspective, the creature fears that others will want to devour it, and, covered with paranoia, it seeks to drive them all away, and this is called anger and hatred, which the snake symbolizes.
Only by being free from delusions, greed and anger can you return to a state of enlightenment.
These are the three poisons or toxins in Indian-Tibetan medicine correspond to phlegm, wind and bile, in the physical sphere - the types of the organism "Kapha", "Watt" and "Pitta", and in a general sense - communication, movement and heat. Health for an unenlightened person is the balance of these poisons and energies - the best that can be achieved. But genuine health, long-term and happy, is achieved through detoxification, removal of poisons through wisdom, understanding the true nature of reality, the experience of unity with the Universe, filling with energy and bliss, rejection of greed, fear of anyone and hatred of anyone, sympathy for all others, who are regarded as equal to themselves and beautiful in their differences, such as they see their beloved child, lover or good friend. This is the true health of enlightenment. ”
Enlightenment, as true health, may seem unattainable to many people, but getting rid of the poisons that the Buddha talked about is, from this point of view, more important than what we can do by changing food, drinks and using natural cleaning products. In this state, we live with the consciousness that we already have everything we need. Only this will really put an end to the unbridled consumption and madness of modern life.
As part of the proposed detoxification program, you will be asked to implement a short-term meditation practice. This is a chance to throw off the emotional burden and begin to learn what genuine health, long-term and happy can mean for you.

- Quantum Detoxification: Purification of Consciousness
At the heart of the ancient traditions of health care is the idea that changes in consciousness entail changes in the body. Harmony in the body largely depends on the harmony in the mind. In India, the word amma refers to all toxins that accumulate and undermine health, both physical and mental. Most practitioners of oriental medicine know that cleansing the patient’s mind
T-2-toxin is a product of the vital activity of the fungi of the genus Fusar-ium, therefore, until the end of the 60s, toxicosis caused by this mycotoxin was diagnosed as fusaryotoxicosis. Many authors studied the study of fusariotoxicosis in our country (A. Kh. Sarkisov, 1948; M. I. Salikov, 1956; NA Spe-sivtseva, 1966; I. A. Kurmanov, 1960–1971, and others). Clinic of fusariotoxicosis in large
- BACTERIAL TOXINS
Classification of bacterial toxins. Louis Pasteur in 1887, experiments were conducted proving that the substances that are formed as a result of the activity of microorganisms and are in the nutrient broth, can cause the same clinical signs of the disease, as when infected with the pathogen. E. Ru and A. Yersin in their experiments in 1889 confirmed this conclusion.

- Disarming Toxins - Liver Function
Toxins and mucus that are released into the circulatory and lymphatic systems, as soon as the detoxification mode is activated, should be neutralized and removed from the body. Why? Because they contain free radicals - electrically charged molecules, which, upon contact, corrode tissue and damage cells. In addition, they violate various functions - cell division and reproduction,
- EFFECTS OF TOXINS ON HEALTH
Each toxic molecule induces a whole cascade of reactions, propagating like circles on the smooth surface of the water of a quiet lake, resulting from the fall of a single drop. These circles diverge as far as the eye can see. Similarly, you can observe the chemical traces of each toxin a long time after it triggers a chain of events. But

- Effects of toxins on children
Sometimes the costs of modern nutrition are manifested in the most disturbing way. Unfortunately, the main victims of toxins are children who, because of the small size of their bodies, receive the greatest number of them. When patients reject the idea of eating organic foods, I tell them about my colleague and friend, Tina, with whom we worked together in Palm Springs. Thanks to her,
- Where do toxins come from?
Research results indicate that every modern person in the body in measurable quantities there are several hundred synthetic chemicals. These pollutants did not exist until the beginning of the twentieth century and did not play any role in the chemistry of the organism. We can safely assume that we are all burdened by the toxic burden as a result of exposure to synthetic
