Fast food has become the daily regimen of many people today due to hectic schedules or just trying to survive in this fast paced world. No longer do we have the quality time to spend preparing healthy meals for ourselves and our loved ones, fast foods restaurants are now the order of the day. There are some disturbing statistics in relations to the growth of fast foods establishments and how much money is spent on their food yearly.

Fast food sales have grown over $143.9 billion since 1975 making the fast food industry very profitable. Every where we look there are new fast food retailers setting up their establishments.

There was a time when going to McDonalds was a treat for the family, now it is the norm especially due to the hard economic times we are living in and with most retailers offering $ 1dollar menu deals or $5 dollar fill up boxes including a drink, how can we pass this up. The fast food industry is the one who is not suffering - last year alone it generated over $65 billion dollars.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner which 99 percent of the time is some type of fast food goes something like this for most people; breakfast consists of a sandwich, hash browns and a soda, lunch consists of a sub with chips and a soda, fried chicken and fries or a salad with a lunch size portion of a hot entree, and our dinner may consist of a plate of pasta loaded with some type of high calorie alfredo or marinara sauce with your favorite meat.

For so many years, we have ingested an overwhelming amount of bad food on a daily basis that our bodies no longer function properly. It has become weighed down with waste and overloaded with toxins which seep into our blood stream and causes dis-eases in our bodies. These dis-eases start off slowly; first you may develop high blood pressure and / or high cholesterol which leads to diabetes, heart disease and eventually death if not caught and corrected in its early stages.

With every breath we take we can feel the effects from our self neglect. We tire easily, normal tasks such as walking through a grocery store becomes a chore due to our bodies not functioning as it should. We are a constipated society; we are not eliminating waste from our systems as regularly as we should (we should have a bowel movement after every meal), most people eliminate once a day or less.

Our bodies speak to us every day and we continually ignore its pleas for proper nutrition and the end result is a sluggish immune system which allows for all types of dis-ease to set in. Detoxing is one of the ways we can "listen" to it and give it what it needs.

The body is amazing and can withstand years of abuse before it starts to show obvious signs of neglect. When we detox or give our bodies an internal bath; at that very moment it starts to heal itself. Once we learn how to detox the body, we will be on the road to healing the body externally and internally.
