poison

The word ‘toxic’ originated in the mid-17th century from the medieval Latin word toxicus 'poisoned', from Latin toxicum 'poison' which was derived from the Greek phrase ‘toxikon (pharmakon) which meant '(poison for) arrows', from toxon 'bow'. Toxic now means containing or being poisonous material especially when capable of causing death or serious debilitation. Detoxify means removal (or elimination) of substances that are toxic to the human body.

The words pharmacy and pharmaceutical are derived from the Greek word ‘pharmakeia’ which means sorcery and is mentioned in the bible in Revelations 18:23:

and the light of a lamp will not shine in you (the great city Babylon) any longer; and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for your merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations (ethnos) were deceived by your sorcery (pharmakeia)

It is again mentioned in the bible in Galatians 5:19-21

“Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery (pharmakeia), enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God”

There are many toxic substances invented and manufactured by mankind that can poison the environment, animals and people and lead to ill health. There are also some naturally poisonous plants and insects that carry viruses and cause disease and some people have allergies to substances that do not normally affect most people. Toxins can accumulate in the body from ingesting them, rubbing them onto the skin, breathing them in through the lungs and infections by bacteria and other microbes which can cause toxin build-up through their excretions.

Below are the substances and conditions that may, in small doses, do little harm. However, many of them, if left to accumulate within the human body, or if left undiagnosed or untreated, will eventually affect the health. Click on the health hazards below for in-depth information about how to avoid, prevent and eliminate them and find natural alternatives and how to naturally treat the health issues caused by them.
