Weeping eyes occur when a person’s tear ducts become blocked or strained, this can lead to conjunctivitis if the irritation continues. Eye inflammation can be triggered by an allergy or a bacterial or viral infection. The nerves […]

Epilepsy

Causes  Seizures and convulsions can be partly caused by toxicity from vaccinations, aspartame and gluten. There may be deficiencies in vitamin D3, vitamin E, magnesium or manganese due to a poor diet or side effects of medication. Stress, trauma and emotional problems can also be contributing factors. This condition is also more likely to occur […]

Environmental Pollutants

Causes  Many products that we come into contact with regularly may contain ingredients that could potentially be harmful and lead to serious health problems. Chemicals can enter the body through inhalation, ingestion or contact with the skin. They can also be transferred in utero. A lack of funding often prevents new products from being thoroughly […]

Causes  Dental work including x-rays, fillings, dentures, braces, implants and crowns introduce metals, chemicals and radiation into the body and if the body can’t detoxify at a great enough rate, this can lead to an overload of toxicity, contributing towards serious health problems. Metals in the mouth can cause an imbalance in pH; acidic conditions […]
