Introduction ~ How the Body Works and Actions You Can Do to Support It


I’ve pursued the approach below so I can learn how to take responsibility for my own healthcare and use my advisors as consultants, to CO-DIRECT treatment. 

  1. Introduction to “How the Body Works and Actions You Can Do to Support It” (This page)
  2. Presentation of the Circulation System and Actions to Support It (lungs / heart, lymph system, kidneys)
  3. Presentation of the Digestive System and Actions to Support It (stomach, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and the intestines)
  4. Presentation of the Regulation of Nerves and Hormones and Actions to Support It (brain, vagus nerve, hormones)
  5. Presentation of the Environmental Barriers and Actions to Support It (skin / sweat glands, nose, mouth, eyes)




To prepare for our first presentation on “How the Body Works and Actions You Can Do to Support It“, I’m offering you a video about how your body detoxes alcohol.  By viewing the video below you will get a good foundation that will help you understand what is coming next.

How Your Body Detoxes

The route alcohol takes to permeate the body and be eliminated is similar to other toxins such as mycotoxins produced by mold spores.

While you can ingest toxins like mold, as you would with alcohol, the most common method of absorption is from the air. In that case the route is through your lungs, then your heart pumps it into your bloodstream and only after the blood is used will it be filtered. From that point the route of circulation is the same as the digestion of alcohol.

If you aren’t squeamish looking at preserved anatomy, you will find this extremely fascinating to see the miracle of how our body works.  This video will help you ENORMOUSLY in setting the foundation for what is offered to you next.
