Endotoxins

Endotoxins are produced in the body/mind. Emotions and memories leave an imprint on organs, glands, and tissues, mediated by biochemical pathways linked to the nervous system and brain.

Endotoxins include:

  • By-products of intestinal bacteria and fungi, imbalanced intestinal flora (dysbiosis). Meat eaters usually produce more harmful intestinal toxins than vegetarians.
  • Bacterial or fungal toxins disseminated from root canals, gum disease or from other sources of infection
  • Intermediary metabolites (lactic acid, pyruvic acid, sulphuric acid, nitric acid, phosphoric acid, uric acid, homocysteine)
  • Hormonal overload (estradiol, C16, C4 estrogens, thyroxine, IGF-1, insulin, cortisol, prolactin, LH etc.)
  • Increased free radicals (lipid peroxides, reactive oxygen intermediates in the liver, etc.)
  • Cellular toxins that are a product of normal cell function
  • Immunoglobulins, immune complexes and circulating immune complexes which may be involved in autoimmune conditions and pain
  • Toxic emotions (excess worry, regret, grief, fear, lust, anger, jealousy, pride, greed, attachment, etc.)
  • Toxic memories (loss, rape, embarrassment, shame, violence, abandonment, guilt, etc.)
