Generalized Toxicity Syndrome Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy Generalized Toxicity Syndrome is the term I use for an illness not caused by a specific toxin or foreign agent, but by a combination of many common "environmental" toxins. When one considers the number of foreign chemicals in the environment literally thousands (including thousands of pharmaceutical agents, all of which are measurable in the public water supply at one time or another), levels of which can be measured in almost any human, combined with the common ingestion of caffeine, alcohol and the direct or indirect inhalation of tobacco smoke and air pollution in general, the idea that all this together can cause an illness should come as no surprise. These are all molecular structures which are toxic to the body and which the body has little or no experience with handling. Our ancestors did not have to deal with the pollutants of the industrial, pharmaceutical, and food processing ages and therefore did not pass on to us an abundance of enzymatic pathways to cope with this swamp. Visualize these molecules as logs placed in a river by an upstream logging company. As long as the density of logs does not reach a critical level, they continue to flow downstream. When they reach a critical mass, a log jam results. When the "logs" are too thick, normal metabolism (flow of water in the analogy) is slowed down. This is hypometabolism. This is when noticable symptoms set in.

While it is impossible to avoid all contact with these pollutants in the modern age, it is wise to make the effort. A few things one can do are:

  • Consume only fresh organic food
  • Avoid processed food
  • Consume only distilled water (little controversy here: Water)
  • Choose to live in low population areas far from industrial plants
  • Never allow a dentist to use metal in dental work regardless of assurances
  • Avoid pharmaceutical drugs whenever possible
  • Avoid recreational drugs
  • Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco
  • Avoid electromagnetic fields
  • Periodically employ detox methods (colon irrigation, sweating [exercise or sauna], lots of pure water, drainage remedies, deep breathing, etc.)
  • Achieve emotional stability and inner peace
