In 2004, researchers tested the umbilical cord blood of ten babies for various chemicals; what they found was unsettling. 180 of the chemicals are known to cause cancer in humans; 217 are toxic to the brain & nervous system, and 208 are thought to cause birth defects. It is incredibly unfortunate that in order to gain all the luxuries of the industrial revolution, we had to sacrifice environmental integrity. Well, perhaps it wasn’t a requirement, but never the less greed, ignorance, and lack of foresight have all contributed to the chemical soup in which we are all swimming. Environmental poisons are especially important to take into consideration when thinking of drinking juice. It is idealistic to believe that just because something has a label claiming organic on it, that it is free of pesticides, fungicides, heavy metals, or other contaminants. When you drink juice, you are imbibing the concentrated essence of multiple plants simultaneously. If those plants had pesticides on them, you might have been able to get away with eating them due to the lower level of pesticide intake. You would also consume much less, and not be as apt to get a deadly dose of insecticide. However, with juice, a large amount of poison can concentrate in a minute amount of liquid. Worse yet, if the if the juice comes in a plastic bottle, you run the chance of also ingesting a mixed bag of xenoestrogens. These are compounds that mimic estrogen in the body and impair proper hormonal functioning. After drinking juice, many people will experience a range of unpleasant side effects. These include headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, etc.. So who is to say if it is a Herxheimer healing crisis, or just being poisoned by a massive dose of toxins? It is easy to see how dangerous this situation can realistically be.
The last thing I want this to feel like is fear mongering. Rather a straightforward message about the true nature of what we are battling. If you thoroughly understand your opponent, they will be much easier to defeat. Now that we have discussed all this, the heavy metal chelation & overall detoxification properties of Pürblack take on all new light. It’s so overwhelming to consider the insurmountable amount of things in our modern world that emit toxins into the environment; I can only do it in short mental bursts. I do my best to keep my sphere of concern within my sphere of influence. I know that by taking Pürblack, I am giving my body the best tools available for dealing with toxicity. If you were taking Pürblack and you ingest a pesticide-laden juice, you will be much more shielded from damage than the average person who is not on highest-quality shilajit. We must just do the best we can as a people to be kind human beings and work towards cleaning up our planet. We must press onward despite all the monumental challenges. Until we reattain that pristine state of living in harmony with nature, Pürblack can assist in giving your mind & body a fighting chance.
