Could Detoxification Be
the Fountain of Youth?
By Natasha Lee
Nutritional Research for Peter Gillham's Nutritional Center
Dr. Alexis Carrel, of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research performed an amazing experiment in the early 1900's. He managed to sustain the life of cells from a chicken embryo by immersing the cells in a solution containing all the nutrients necessary for life and changing the solution daily. The cells took up nutrients from the nutrient-rich broth and excreted their wastes into the same solution. The only thing Dr. Carrel did each day was discard the old solution and replace it with fresh nutrient solution. The chicken cells lived for 29 years until one night Dr. Carrel's assistant forgot to change the polluted solution! We do not know how much longer the cell's life could have been maintained.
Dr. Carrel concluded at the end of his experiment that the cell is actually immortal. It is merely the fluid in which it floats which degenerates. He is quoted saying "The cell is immortal. Renew this fluid at intervals, give the cell something on which to feed and, so far as we know, the pulsation of life may go on forever." The average chicken lives about 7 years. His detoxified, properly nourished chicken cell lived for 29 years.
It may be hard to believe that the body could live indefinitely; however, a similar level of vibrant health and life extension can be created in humans by following the obvious similar principal.
Every cell in the body excretes waste material which becomes toxic and poisonous to the body if we allow it to build up faster than we renew the fluid in which it floats. According to the above experiment, this is the cause of aging and degeneration. Factors such as "time" and ideas such as " that's just life" fade from the picture, with new data in view. The fact is that every 7 years we have a completely new set of bones, teeth, skin and hair. Logically, a person should be able to look and feel better than they did 7 years ago by changing and improving the way one takes care of his own body as Dr. Carrel took care of his chicken cell.
Time alone is not a disease or poison. It is the toxins that accumulate with time that the body cannot withstand and that deteriorate health. In other words, time alone is not the cause of death.
So, logically and from the above data, by detoxifying your cells a person can freshen up and grow healthier and younger than they once were. Periodically detoxifying the body, drinking lots of fresh water and staying smart on nutrition can appear to work miracles.
Dr. Carrel however proved these amazing results are not miracles, just good science.
