Toxemia means blood poisoning. Way back in 1926, a famous Colorado healer, JH Tilden MD, wrote a book which was the culmination of a lifetime of clinical experience, Toxemia Explained. Dr. Tilden was radical. He didn’t believe drugs cured disease. He had one simple thesis:
“… every so-called disease is a crisis of toxemia, which means that toxin has accumulated in the blood above the toleration point. … the crisis, the so-called disease – call it cold, flu, pneumonia, headache, or typhoid fever – is a vicarious elimination. Nature is endeavoring to rid the body of toxin.”
Toxemia Explained p. 49
A disease is named for where the toxins accumulate so much that that body part starts failing.
This concept of disease, known as vicarious elimination, has never been disproven. What happens is, the normal avenues for expelling waste – liver, kidneys, colon – are overwhelmed by the amount of poisons being accumulated. As a survival instinct, various other organs of the body which were not designed for elimination of toxins become enlisted to help get rid of wastes. They try desperate measures to expel the indigestible, rotting poisons, often becoming inflamed or diseased themselves in the attempt.
Chronic “incurable” eczema and psoriasis often fall into the same category. People suffer needlessly for years with these diseases, under the direction of their well-intentioned but clueless dermatologists who have convinced them that their only hope is to find the right medication for their “skin disease.”
