Autointoxication is defined as a state of being poisoned by toxic substances produced within the body. When the digestive system doesn’t work properly, autointoxication sets in. This happens when food begins to break down without being eliminated. Proteins putrefy and rot, carbohydrates ferment, and oils and fats turn rancid. The body becomes poisoned from its own waste.
If these poisons are not constantly excreted we will die. When our bodies are overwhelmed by toxic substances beyond its ability to eliminate them through the channels of elimination, the body institutes emergency action to expel the toxin burden. This crisis is called sickness or disease and half of America does not have a bowel movement each day.
