The chronically ill human body is like a bathtub full of dirty water overflowing onto the bathroom floor. All of the drains at the bottom of the bathtub (represents the detox mechanisms of the bowel, liver, kidney, lymph) are plugged up preventing the dirty water from draining out of the bathtub. At the top of the bathtub there is a faucet wide open 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 relationships, toxic conscious and sub-conscious emotions, electro-magnetic pollution, other radiation, etc. There is also "clean" water that is either completely turned off or barely dripping into the tub.
The clean water faucet represents fresh air, purified water, good foods and supplemental nutrients, sunshine, exercise, relaxation, good relationships, peace, joy, love, the will to live and a purpose in life. All the dirty water overflowing onto the bathroom floor represents symptoms of chronic disease. In order to stop the dirty water from flowing over onto the bathroom floor, 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.
