Inner Cleansing

There can be no disputing the link between cleansing and survival. Survival is the main aim of the organism. External attacks or accidents apart, the most common and constant threats to its survival are internal poisoning, and premature decay. The body defends itself from these vigorously: firstly, through the complex filters and waste-disposal system which make up most of the innards;secondly, by the judicious use of the internal-external sense organs; and thirdly, by manipulating the outer limbs to attend to the external body surfaces. Without this massive tripartite, self-defensive, self-cleansing, physiological system we would quickly die.

'Biological cleansing' is a biotechnology of perpetual motion, common to all species. Bio-perpetual motion runs on its own time. As in all other plants and animals our bodies respond obediently to the macrobiological rhythms of our solar and lunar 'body clocks', that prompt us through the years, months, days, and hours, ordaining the time to eat, sleep, give birth, grow, or die.1 Human body-cleansing also has its own physical calendars and clocks. Powerful daily circadian cycles regulate our total energy flow and all the major bodily processes, particularly the arrival and passing of the menses, the fetus, and the faeces. Micro-second cellular activity is constant—but it is when we are asleep, or resting, that microbiological 'cleansing' can take place relatively uninterrupted. It is no accident that we cleanse ourselves in the morning from the evacuated remnants of our night's sleep;just as we cleanse ourselves in the evenings from the remnants of the day's work.

Poison or dirt removal—cleansing—starts in the cell. Modern immunology records the great cellular battles that are fought by the organic 'Self' against mutation, malfunction, and the physical invasion of lethal pathogens—cells which bring about the death of whole cells, or whole organisms, before the genetically determined time.2 Not all 'foreign bodies' destroy their host cells, but some of them do it rapidly and spectacularly, and the most lethal of these travel the globe, creating epidemics of infectious diseases. Normal healthy cells, on the other hand, reproduce exactly to order, in order, with all parts functioning correctly, time after time. Any disorderliness is a clear threat to their survival, and a rigid cellular discipline prevails—a sort of constant cellular 'housekeeping' is carried on in which wholeness or 'wholesomeness' of the cell is the great aim, and anything that is 'foreign' (or 'alterior') to the cell is rejected. The pool of circulating water that bathes the working cells is kept pristine at all times, within a chemical variation of only 1 per cent: any more variation and the cells would start to die.3

You are what you eat—and your body takes the best, and leaves the rest. This job is done by the larger organs in the hydraulic system now called 'elimination' (formerly known as 'the evacuations'). Everything we eat or drink goes into the stomach and slowly passes through the small intestines, by which time most of the nourishment or 'goodness' has been absorbed. The liver rearranges the products of digestion that are distributed to the other tissues by the blood supply;the kidneys filter the blood and keep the cellular water pool clean, excreting waste products as urine. By the time the food reaches the colon whatever remains is surplus to requirements, and ready to be ejected through the bowels via the anus. Human excreta or dung consists mostly of water, dead bacteria, and cells, indigestible matter, and various gases and chemicals, such as bilirubin, which is made when the body takes old blood cells apart— bilirubin is a brown colour. Watery fluids also seep out of other orifices such as the mouth, nose, and eyes, but also with great consistency through the pores of the skin, which act like one-way valves, keeping us cool—and moist, and scented—with oily waste matter (hold your arm against a sunlit wall and you can see the vapours of perspiration steadily evaporating from it). Dead dry matter is also continually falling away from our outer bodies. We shed skin, hair, and toenail clippings, and generally dispose of quantities of waste matter minute by minute, day by day, year in year out—normally between 3 and 6 ounces a day, or 4 tons in the average lifetime. Between 75 and 80 per cent of vacuum cleaner dirt consists of human skin cells.
