Your Body’s Internal Environment

Updated: Sep 7


Analogy reference. Wm. Lee Cowden MD

The chronically ill human body is like a bathtub full of dirty water full of toxins and/or pathogens overflowing out of the tub. All the dirty water overflowing out of the bathtub represents symptoms of disease. At the top of the bathtub there is a faucet running dirty water into the bathtub. These dirty water faucets represent polluted inhaled air, nutrient-depleted foods eaten (that are toxic from steroids, pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, heavy metals, partially hydrogenated oils, etc.), toxic heavy metals, toxic relationships, toxic conscious and sub-conscious emotions, electro-magnetic pollution, radioactive substances, etc. There is also a faucet running clean water into the bathtub. This faucet can either be completely turned off or barely dripping into the tub. All the drains at the bottom of the bathtub (representing the detox mechanisms of the bowel, liver, kidney, lymph) are plugged up, preventing the dirty water from draining out of the bathtub.


The clean water faucet represents fresh air, purified water, good foods and vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients, sunshine, exercise, relaxation, good relationships, peace, joy, love, the will to live and a purpose in life. In order to stop the dirty water from overflowing, and to progressively lower the level of dirty water in the bathtub, one must open up the drains at the bottom of the bathtub by enhancing the detox mechanisms of the body and turn down or off as many of the dirty water faucets as possible while, at the same time, opening wide the clean water faucets at the top of the bathtub. In doing these things, not only does the level of the dirty water go down, but the water becomes cleaner and cleaner so that, eventually, the bottom of the bathtub can be seen.


This analogy represents complete wellness, not just the absence of symptoms. Our plan of care considers the spiritual well-being, mental- emotional and physical well-being of the individual. Naturopathic modalities include but are not limited to, education and counseling on foods, exercise, non-medical physical therapies such as lymphatic therapy, bodywork, sound, light, electro-magnetic and bio-energetic therapies. Beneficial supplementation and homeopathic preparations are included in a plan of care to help stimulate, promote, and maintain the individual’s whole body function and its self-healing processes.
