True Cellular Detox – A Top 5 Strategy To Create Your Best Health Ever
180° Solution™ Strategy #5: True Cellular Detox™
What if you’re regulating your blood sugar with the perfect diet, intermittent fasting, incorporating diet variation, waking up early to burst train on a fasted stomach and still not getting the ultimate results you desire? Enter health strategy #5: True Cellular Detox™. I use the words TRUE and CELLULAR because detox is only real and lasting when it occurs at the cellular level. Detoxification is a fundamental component of cellular healing, one which most carry out improperly or neglect altogether. No matter how clean of a lifestyle we lead, toxins bombard us from all angles including our air, water, foods, body care products, clothing and even store receipts. But since we can’t live in a bubble, periodic True Cellular Detox™ is essential to a healthy life in our modern toxic world.
True Cellular Detox™ – A Top 5 Strategy To Create Your Best Health Ever!
The Likely Reason You Don’t Feel Well
Think of your body as a bucket. Now imagine the toxins that surround us in daily life are the liquid that slowly fills that bucket. With each toxic exposure, drop-by-drop your bucket becomes more full. A drop here and there isn’t such a big deal, as our immune systems were designed to handle a degree of toxicity. However, chronic exposure to an onslaught of chemical, physical and emotional stressors fills up your bucket each day, and at some point the bucket begins to overflow. It may take a few decades before your bucket spills over, but once it does cellular inflammation is triggered, symptoms arise, and disease manifests.
Sadly, the tactics, treatments and downstream detox that got people well in the past do not work nearly as well today because we are sicker and more toxic. The epidemic is at the cell and the detox MUST go there to be effective. We need to recognize that the massive increase in neurotoxins we are exposed to is like no time in the history of man. Many of these chemicals are new to our bodies and have become ubiquitous in our everyday lives, filling our buckets drop by drop, shutting down natural cellular detox pathways and even changing DNA to express diseases or unwanted symptoms. Whether it’s weight-loss resistance, hormone dysregulation, thyroid problems, diabetes, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, autism, autoimmune, and even cancer, the answer is to go “upstream” to the source and address toxicity and its affect on the cell to achieve restored health. I’ve always said, “If you don’t heal the cell, you won’t get well.” Perhaps here I’ll be more specific: if you don’t detox the cell, you will never get well. I believe periodic detoxification is in order for nearly every human being on the planet, but it must be done right to get results. And how does one properly detox the cell? By using a systematic approach I call True Cellular Detox™.
Note: This information is not just for the sick and challenged. Anyone looking to live a longer and healthier life needs to understand these principles of cellular detox and healing. When it comes to anti-aging this is the true science.
If you don’t detox the cell, you will never get well.
What is True Cellular Detox™?
True Cellular Detox™ is a process I learned and created through my own health challenges, and those of whom I coach back to health, which works by improving cellular function so the body is able to detox and heal itself. The approach incorporates my 5R’s of True Cellular Detox and Healing™, which has become a roadmap to not just fixing the cell, but an explanation of the epidemic of inflammatory driven chronic diseases and the growing number of unexplainable, over-medicated illnesses. The 5R’s is a tool and simple strategy for understanding and repairing the complexities of cellular pathways that have become damaged by the toxic onslaught of today’s world. Using the 5R’s to repair the natural detox pathways of the cell upstream, while keeping the downstream detox pathways open (lymph, liver, kidneys and gut), and including true binders to assist in the removal of toxins, is what I call True Cellular Detox™.
Therefore, True Cellular Detox™ goes upstream to target the source of illness and involves three components:
- Applying the 5R’s principles as a roadmap to fix the cell
- Opening and supporting critical detox pathways
- Utilizing true binding agents to remove toxins from the cell
In contrast, True Cellular Detox™ is not simply …
- A colon cleanse (good to help with constipation and clear toxins from the colon, but not far enough up-stream)
- A foot bath (good for edema in lower legs, but I’m not convinced of any detox benefit)
- A raw juice fast (if using greens and not fruit you will get some fasting benefits to support detox at best)
- A coffee enema (good to move toxins from the liver and toxic bile complex, but not far enough upstream)
- A bottle of chlorella tablets (not a true binder)
- 7-10 day herbal cleanses (not true binders)
Although these strategies, and countless others, can be helpful in supporting detox, they are too far downstream to make the impact needed to remove toxins at the cellular level. Again, one must find and remove the source of illness to begin the journey back to health. The 5R’s provide the roadmap to fixing the cell, but the source of toxicity must be removed properly, whilst keeping detox pathways open and supported, to provoke cellular revitalization.
Including a true binding agent (or agents) in the protocol is critical to preventing re-circulation of toxins once they are moving out of the cell. There are many detox agents used today, but few are true binders, thus have little to no effect. Examples include chlorella, often promoted as the “metal magnet,” but in real human tests makes no change in the toxic burden. There are many 7-10 day herbal detox cleanses that promise to change your life, but again fall short of any real change. Many of these products are even dangerous because they are weak binders, meaning they simply stir up toxins without completely removing them from the body thereby allowing them to cross back into deeper tissues (like the brain).
This is where the distinction lies between True Cellular Detox™ and other forms of detox. Utilizing this system has made all the difference in my clients’ results because it ensures toxins are safely and completely removed by considering the entire detox process: from the cell upstream and moving through the downstream pathways and out of the body.
The Three Amigos Robbing Your Vitality
Amigo #1: METALS
We have grown up in what is called the “lead generation.” From gasoline to paint, it was everywhere, and is said it will take four generations to be bred out of our bodies and environment. The number one exposure of lead is actually our mothers in utero. I can speak personally about this because my wife’s lead ended up in all three of my biological children, which created a number of unexplainable challenges early on in their lives until we detoxed it correctly.
As far as mercury exposures, our parents were the first generation to get amalgam fillings put in their teeth, which contain 50% mercury that vaporizes directly into the brain. My generation got hit the hardest with the increases in vaccinations and more amalgam fillings than any other generation. This qualifies us as the “mercury generation,” and the opportunity to pass it on to our children for at least four generations.
Most practitioners today agree that heavy metals are at the root of many illnesses, but very few understand how to truly and safely remove it from the body. This is my greatest pet peeve in alternative health care. People are told that chlorella and other herbal concoctions are going to take care of their heavy metal detox. As mentioned, these are not true binders of heavy metals and will not pull a heavy metal out of the body let alone from the deep nerve tissue where it bio-accumulates. Worse yet, many are told after 3-6 months of a detox program that they are metal free. In reality, it takes 20-30 years of low dose exposure to accumulate heavy metals; to insinuate that it will come out in a few months is simply impossible. Please read my articles on when detox become dangerous for more on this topic: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
Amigo #2: MOLD
But it doesn’t stop with heavy metals. Biotoxins from mold are arguably more toxic. God warns people about mold and even directs them regarding how to handle it in the Bible in the book of Leviticus Chapter 14. Today, mold is an even greater problem because of new construction methods that can feed its growth. Toxic mold is evil and nasty, and I have seen it ruin many lives. The sad part is that most practitioners do not understand it, or the proper testing and detox method. For more info on the issues with mold and how to safely detox it see Cellular Healing TV episode 73.

Amigo #3: HIDDEN INFECTION
Hidden infections are often times the thing that keeps many from getting their lives back. They are difficult to detect and difficult to get rid of. They come in the forms of root canals that harbor anaerobic bacteria that no antibiotic or herbal killer can reach because they are deep in microtubules that remain even after the root is extracted. Cavitations in the jaw left behind from tooth extractions (like wisdom teeth), will often leave a space that breeds infection. The anaerobic bacteria from the infection slowly work their way into your bloodstream causing major immune issues and even triggering autoimmune disease.
Lyme disease is perhaps even more misunderstood than heavy metal and mold challenges, and goes undetected in countless so-called unexplainable illnesses. The problem is for years western medicine didn’t recognize Lyme disease as a real illness and the treatment was simply a round of antibiotics. If you didn’t get well then you didn’t have Lyme, it was “all in your head.” Today we know it is in fact real, but still very difficult to detect and kill. Lyme will even occur with co-infections such as bacteria like Babesia and Bartonella. These guys are nasty, opportunistic and hard to kill. For more info on the ISPOT Lyme test, co-infection testing and more watch Cellular Healing TV episode 72.
Lyme is a stealthy, intelligent survivor that can morph and switch from a spirochete form, which can drill deep into your tissues, to a cyst that drugs and herbs can’t kill. And if it were not hard enough to kill, it will hide and protect itself from the immune system by co-habiting in and around mercury. I’ve always said that I could never get rid of my candida until I got my metal levels down to a certain point; this is also the case with Lyme. I believe that many people do not get well after years of Lyme treatment because they do not address the heavy metals issue or do it correctly. True Cellular Detox™ must be a part of detoxing infections like these from the body or you will not get well.
If one of the “big boy” sources of toxicity are not detected and removed, what I call the three amigos (metals, mold and infection), there will never be a lasting solution to a health challenge. When the source of illness remains, i.e. someone is ill yet continues to live in a moldy home, the individual will never fully recover regardless of changes in diet and lifestyle. Only when the interference has been removed can the body’s innate intelligence execute the healing.
Once external toxins have been eliminated as much as possible, internal toxins that have bio-accumulated over time must be removed as well. As stated and emphasized, most cleanses fail to remove toxins at the cellular level. I overhear conversations, and have had many myself, with people who recognize the need for detox and wish to do a “cleanse” in attempts to feel better. But does it make logical sense that in 10 days you can remove what took 20-30 years to accumulate? And what about the issue of using a downstream approach without incorporating true binding agents? These points are rarely considered. True detox is no quick fix; it takes time and massive effort, but is transformational. This is why the clients of the doctors who I train, and I myself, teach the process: so people can move forward with the knowledge and information needed to stay the course for an appropriate amount of time. As stated, I have nothing against coffee enemas, colon cleanses, or some of the other herbal cleanses out there; however, they are all too far downstream to have a lasting impact. Remember, you must get to the cell to get well.
Are You Looking for Help?
If you are reading this and have many of the symptoms I discuss relating to neurotoxic illness, hormone imbalance, autoimmune or other unexplainable illnesses you will need a practitioner to coach you through the process. This is why I have trained doctors around the country, and even offer virtual coaching for those in areas we do not have a trained practitioner (for more information on working with a trained practitioner call my office at: 800-833-2941 or search for a trained True Cellular Detox™ office by zip code HERE).
Granted, there are some who just want to be healthier and could utilize the Core Cellular formulas based on the 5R’s, support some of the main downstream detox pathways, and utilize the true binders mentioned in this article for a few cycles and improve their health. I still personally do True Cellular Detox™ several times a year to maintain my health. I always tell my wife “I can never go back,” meaning I will never let myself get sick ever again. Real detox at the cellular level is the key, especially for someone with my genetically poor detox pathways.
True Cellular Detox™ Part 1: Applying the 5R’s
Within True Cellular Detox™, I always use my 5R’s as the roadmap and these principles remain the foundation of my approach to fixing the cell. True Cellular Detox™, and the 5R’s within it, is not a product but a clinically proven strategy that has helped thousands get their lives back after mainstream medicine has failed them. The process is not a quick-fix band-aid but rather a guide for doctors and their patients to understand how to support all health challenges. The following steps are often addressed simultaneously, but it depends upon the case, as the goal is not to focus on a specific condition, but to fully support the body’s inherent ability to heal itself. I believe God gave the concepts of True Cellular Detox™ and the 5R’s to me, and I’m simply blessed to share the information with those who are struggling and living without answers.
Here’s a quick review of the 5R’s of True Cellular Detox and Healing™ (please see links to individual articles for more extensive information and my personal stories):
My protocol for each client begins by determining which sources of stress are causing body-wide damage and removing them as soon as possible. R1 is removing the toxic source that has accumulated over time in the body; it’s truly what True Cellular Detox™ is all about. I would have never recovered my health had I not removed my mercury amalgam fillings (but removal MUST be performed properly or detox becomes dangerous, read my series on safe detox here: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3). Most allopathic doctors cover symptoms with medications while alternative practitioners do the same with supplements. Neither approach gets people truly well. Getting “knee to knee” with clients and digging deep into their health history is key to figuring out what caused the sickness. Toxic stressors quickly shut down detox pathways and allow other toxins to bio-accumulate. These typically include the three amigos: biotoxins from mold and Lyme disease, infections, and heavy metals like lead and mercury. For more info, read the complete R1 article here.
Because the cell membrane holds the intelligence of the cell and plays a major role in detox, turning genes on and off, and regulating hormones, regenerating the membrane is at the core of a solution to the growing number of unexplainable symptoms and degenerative diseases seen today in epidemic proportions. In healthy individuals, the supple lipid bilayer of the membrane allows nutrients to flow inside easily, and toxins and free radicals to leave unimpeded. If inflamed, nothing can come in and out, so the cell becomes a toxic wasteland and illness results. The membrane must be regenerated for detoxification to occur and elicit body-wide healing. For more info, read the complete R2 article here.
Cellular energy is the gasoline of the cell, and nothing runs or functions without it. As nutrients flow into the cell, they feed the powerhouse called mitochondria, the cellular structures which produce ATP (aka cellular energy). Without adequate production of ATP, cells are unable to detoxify or regenerate properly. What’s more, the lower your ATP, the more inflammation is occurring at the cellular level. Individuals lacking ATP have become an epidemic in America and suffer from symptoms like fatigue, brain fog, digestive problems and hormone conditions. Without raising cellular ATP symptoms will not be impacted by treatments. For more info, read the complete R3 article here.
Systemic cellular inflammation is driving the epidemic of chronic diseases and hormone conditions so pervasive in our culture today. Specifically, I am referring to inflammation of the cell membrane that affects the way the cell communicates, detoxes and ultimately changes gene expression, which can trigger a disease of genetic weakness. Understanding how inflammation affects the cell and how to downregulate it is essential to get almost any condition well. Unfortunately, most health practitioners are not keeping up with the exciting research in the area of inflammation, detox, or gene expression, which would dramatically change their clients’ results. Top sources of inflammation include dietary sugars and grains (strategy #1), bad fats, biotoxins, and toxins from mercury fillings, GMOs and others. For more info, read the complete R4 article here.
Methylation is a biochemical process that affects many essential body functions including DNA repair, detoxification, fighting infections, removing environmental toxins such as lead and estrogen, and more processes we’re only beginning to understand. The body needs methylation to regulate stress hormones, and when unable to methylate remains in a state of constant stress. Methyl groups are needed to turn on the stress response, but they are also needed to turn it off. Therefore, if methyl groups are lacking, a greater opportunity is created for toxins, inflammation, and other stressors to trigger bad genes. A toxic diet, lifestyle and various stressors (whether chemical, physical, or emotional) can turn on bad genes by depleting methylation. On the other hand, a healthy lifestyle, clean diet and environment, and properly restored methylation can turn off a bad gene. Hence, our DNA is no longer our destiny. For more info, read the complete R5 article here.
As you can see, the 5R’s act as a guide to fixing the cell. But you mustn’t stop here to achieve successful detox and restored health. Read on to understand the next component of the process to getting your life back.
True Cellular Detox™ Part 2: Opening and Supporting Critical Detox Pathways
While gently applying the 5R’s to support the cellular pathways, it is just as important to start to open up the downstream detox pathways such as the lymphatic system, kidneys, liver and gut before true binders are ever used.
Just as there are three parts to True Cellular Detox™ there are three phases as well. First, there is a 1-2 month “prep phase” for detox pathways at the cell and downstream, where the goal is to simply start supporting the cell function (via the 5R’s) and not push to the point of detox until the pathways are strengthened. Even after the prep phase it is important to note that the cell pathways and the downstream pathways need to be supported throughout every phase of the process. After the 1-2 months of the prep phase we move into a “body phase,” that typically lasts 3-4 months, and finally the most important phase of all: the “brain phase”
As stated, some typical types of cleanses, such as colon cleanses or coffee enemas, can be helpful in the later phases of detox (body phase and brain phase) to keep the toxins moving out of the body and not backing up causing unwanted symptoms. A simple cleanse like this can be useful before or during True Cellular Detox™, but if you end there you will never make it to where the true problem exists.
The Downstream Pathways
The lymphatic system is part of our circulatory and immune systems, made up of lymphatic vessels that make and move lymph fluid from tissues to the blood stream. The body’s ability to detox begins with the lymphatic system which helps clear the blood of toxins and takes stress off the other detox pathways by moving toxins further downstream for removal. Interestingly, the largest concentration of lymph tissue surrounds the gut, so a properly functioning digestive system is critical to lymphatic health and successful detox. A Far Infrared sauna is a very powerful detox tool, and can open up the skin detox pathway and take a lot of toxic stress from the lymph. (to read more about FIR benefits and my personal sauna detox protocol click here). Another great lymph support is the ancient practice of dry brushing. To do it, simply buy a coarse bristle brush and firmly brush the skin towards the heart (avoid sensitive areas). I’ve found it’s convenient to dry brush in the shower stall prior to showering. Other ideas include: rebounding, yoga, lymphatic drainage massage, deep breathing and high quality supplementation.
The kidneys play a vital role in detox by extracting waste from our blood, balancing our body fluids, and forming urine to excrete toxic waste. Key kidney support tactics include supplemental support. avoiding excess protein, and consuming lots of pure water and potassium rich foods like citrus fruits, and grass-fed yogurts. Whey water, one of my favorite beverages and a tool I use for fasting, contains water, potassium and sodium to support the kidneys via hydration and the removal of cellular waste. Drinking whey water daily will profoundly support your kidneys (and other detox organs as well) to start flushing out toxic waste.
The liver is our greatest detox organ, and so must be attended to during any type of detox. To open and support the liver during True Cellular Detox™, I recommend coffee enemas at times to push out bile from a toxic liver. One of the functions of the liver is to make bile, a fluid that aids in digestion. Without bile, our liver could not absorb nutrients nor remove toxins. However, when the liver is congested and over-taxed the toxic bile gets trapped. This is when I like to use coffee enemas, or a coffee enema in a suppository form, to support the liver in removing the toxic bile. Other ways to support the liver during detox include liver support supplements, herbs like milk thistle, dandelion tea, and by consuming lots of leafy green vegetables.
The fastest way to heal the gut, which I’ve written about many times, including Strategy #3, is through fasting. There is simply no better and more efficient way to downregulate inflammation and heal a leaky gut. Fasting, typically on pure water, probiotic whey water, or broth made from the bones of 100% grass-fed cows, gives the gut a much needed break from digesting food so it can heal and seal damaged intestinal lining. I intermittent fast daily, and include fasting in most all of my protocols because of the dramatic results it provides, like accelerated gut healing, weight-loss, improved immunity, and generalized cellular regeneration.
Adding in other downstream strategies is beneficial as well, because the more you do to support your body, the better and faster you will get results.
- Following the Cellular Healing Diet, avoiding grains, sugars, and GMOs
- Consuming plenty of fermented foods, such as cultured dairy and sauerkraut
- Oil pulling (try it during shower time)
- Drinking plenty of pure water
- Taking therapeutic grade supplements (here’s an article on common vitamin deficiencies to get started).
- Spending time in nature to regulate circadian rhythms and optimize vitamin D levels.
- Getting regular chiropractic care and body work.
- Maintaining a spiritual practice embracing daily prayer, meditation and relaxation.
- Moving your body each day and using burst training for weight-loss and anti-aging.
- Sleeping deeply. Especially needed during the healing process, its impact on health cannot be overstated.
Next, I’ll explain the third component of the process of successful detox. Once the 5R’s are working to fix the cell, and detox pathways are open and supported, ensuring that toxins are moved out of the body is essential to getting real results.
True Cellular Detox™ Part 3: Using True Binding Agents to Remove Toxins
I have done many articles and videos on True Cellular Detox™ and the 5R’s; however, perhaps the part of the process I speak the least about is using true binding agents. Not because it is any less important, but because this is where most practitioners really can cause harm. This is the step that makes it all work and come together.
From beginning to end, there is a preparation phase (as noted in Part 2), a body phase, and a brain phase. The preparation phase of cellular detox pathways, as well downstream pathways, lasts about 4-6 weeks, and some support thereafter is also needed at times. The next phase (the body phase) is when the true binders are incorporated, and they are cycled in a 4-7 day “ON cycle” (when you take the binders) followed by a 7-10 day “OFF cycle” (when no binders are taken). The goal in the first 3-4 months is to clear the body to set up a concentration gradient from the deeper tissues such as the brain. This is why I refer to it as the body phase.
But the brain phase is where the magic happens. Eventually applying this process to the brain utilizing fat soluble detox agents with a molecular clinoptilolite particle called CytoDetox™ (that not only crosses into the cell but into the brain), is truly a God given gift to those crying out for answers. Removing neurotoxins that have bio-accumulated in the brain over the years is the key to why so many people have unexplainable symptoms, illnesses, and “have tried everything” and still don’t feel well. It is also an answer for the hormone havoc epidemic that exists today, even in our children. Remove the interference and the body will do the healing: this is where true hope lies, not in man’s manufactured chemicals.
Most practitioners do not get to cellular level of detox and rarely, if ever, get upstream to detox the brain. Yet this is what it takes to allow the body to really heal. Remember, it is not the doctor but the body that does the healing: the healing comes from an innate intelligence that God put in the cell directed by the brain and nervous system. Any detox program short of this is not lasting.
Furthermore, preventing re-tox, or autointoxication, throughout the entire process is a must. Most of the toxins are brought from the cell to the liver and dumped into the gut. Once in the gut, toxins must be transported out of the body so that they are not reabsorbed. Autointoxication causes dangerous symptoms and remains a common occurrence in most downstream detox programs, another reason that using true binders during detox is critical to safely getting results. Again, health will only return once cellular functions are improved via the 5R’s and real detox agents (that actually have the ability to pull toxins from the cell) are used to avoid toxin redistribution. This is how I got my life back, and now thousands of others, thanks to the growing number of doctors trained in True Cellular Detox™ around the country.
I didn’t have the game-changing addition of the true binding agent called CytoDetox™ when I was detoxing. I believe the time it took me to detox will be cut in half for those who use this product. It is a truly an amazing particle, and when combined with the cellular products and fat-soluble binders, a level of detox can be reached that was not possible until now. This is a very exciting time in cellular detox, and what I believe will be looked back upon as a tipping point in detox healing.
The Multi Therapeutic Approach (MTA) and Bringing it All Together
Over the years I’ve observed that it typically requires a Multi Therapeutic Approach (MTA) approach to achieve real improvements in health, especially if you’ve been suffering with a chronic condition and toxicity challenges for a long time. I know from personal experience, and testimonials from those I coach, that my top 5 strategies truly make an impact. The True Cellular Detox™ concept and the CytoDetox™ drops are both game-changers. Add in my other top 4 health strategies and life can really transform. Each strategy has a powerful stand-alone effect, but the magic lies in the synergy of incorporating multiple strategies, which ignite massive change at the cellular level. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, improve brain function, or balance your hormones, True Cellular Detox™ needs to take place to see results. In addition, fasting, burst training, controlling blood sugar, and diet variation work perfectly together to encourage the body’s innate healing systems to jump into action. It takes resolute effort to stay the course to properly detox and heal your cells, but the rewards of energy, vitality, mental clarity, and physical fitness are so worth it.
The important lessons in life often need to be heard over and over again until we “get it,” and make the changes to live our healthiest lives and positively impact the world. Keep reading, researching, and relentlessly seeking the truth. Let me know what you think as you experiment with these powerful cellular healing tools, and remember for best results… GO 180°!
