The Disease Process - Dr. Robbins

The two primary ways that toxins enter the blood stream and thus the body are:

1) That Which is Taken by The Digestive System (eaten or drunk)
2) That Which is Taken by The Respiratory System (breathed)

Initially, due to cell irritability, the body will reject toxins being introduced via these two avenues. This is done via:

non-palatible foods: burning sensation of mouth, throat, tongue, esophagus, stomach
coughing, sneezing - irritation or burning sensation of mucus membranes of air passage

These defenses can be over-ridden by:

  • continued toxic input
  • disguising toxins (with use of sugar)
  • conditioned response or learned (educated) override
The digestive system is now responsible for keeping toxins out of the body. This is initially done by vomiting or diarrhea. As the toxic abuse continues, the digestive system becomes less efficient at ridding toxic input via the above mentioned methods. The result is that toxins now begin to be absorbed into the body.
The liver now takes on the responsibility of keeping the body clear of toxins. This is done by the liver neutralizing the toxic acids with its alkaline minerals before they enter the blood stream on their way to the other organs of elimination-kidneys, lungs, bowel. The acids must be neutralized prior to entering the blood stream, otherwise the blood would become too acid and death would rapidly ensue.

It quickly becomes apparent to the liver that if it continues burning its alklaline supplies it would be too acid to continue to survive and the liver would be sacrificed, which would result in death of the body. In order to slow down the liver's loss of alkaline, the liver will begin to store toxins within itself. Thus the liver becomes congested. The more congested it becomes the less efficient it is at carrying out its normal metabolic functions for maintaining health of the body, and the overall health level begins its downward turn. Even so, the liver, and thus the body, will be able to survive many years longer than if the liver had depleted its alkaline supplies.

Once the liver reaches a level of approximately 70% congestion, it can no longer afford to retain poisons at the same rate, otherwise death of the liver would shortly result once it reached a level of 100% congestion.

To offset this, the liver begins to allow some toxins to enter the blood stream. These are not neutralized, the cellular buffer system goes to work in less than a second to neutralize them keeping the blood from becoming acid. This is done at the expense of the cells alkaline supplies. The cells of the body realize very quickly what the liver realized some time back: They would not survive long should they continue to give up their alkaline minerals at such a rate. As a result, the cells employ the same method of survival the liver did, ie. to allow acid toxins to leave the blood stream and enter the tissues.

This does two things:

Note: The cells still continue to give up alkaline for neutralization of toxins in the blood, and for buffering of normal metabolic waste products, thus their over-all health level is continually declining, but at a much slower rate than if this "exchange program" were not enacted.

1) Keeps the cells from having to expend great quantities of alkaline, thus prolonging their life.
2) Keeps the blood pH within normal limits, thus life (though not in health) continues

The storage of toxins in the tissues of the body -temporary or not- is known as a toxic state. More specifically, a toxic state is defined as: an accumulation of toxins, poisons, mucus and/or pus in any tissue of the body a localized area of constipation. In a healthy condition, no toxins are to be found in any tissue at any time.
