AMY KIRK: Want to detox? Start with your mindPeople eager to experience the after-effects of detoxing should schedule a colonoscopy at the same time. It would save money and time, and is just as moving of an experience, maybe even more so and quicker than detoxing but getting completely cleaned out for a colonoscopy is more of a legitimate health reason.
Since things have been kind of boring around here — everyone’s been behaving, there haven’t been any wrecks, breakdowns, meltdowns or bad decisions — I decided to discuss another entertaining topic: detoxing.
Detoxing is an interesting activity. It’s a cleansing process that takes place mostly in the bathroom for people who want to experience starvation. The general theory is that harmful substances referred to as “toxins” and their accumulations in the body’s system get removed.

Eliminating these so-called poisons is often done in unhealthy and dangerous ways. Depriving the human body unnecessarily is not healthy or safe unless it happens to involve the removal of tainted media coverage accumulated in the mind.
The smart way to detox without spending an extended amount of time in the bathroom is to detox the mind: the most important body organ. It regularly needs extreme purging of television media toxins; and maybe of a few national newspapers and magazines that have also strayed from accurate news reporting.
Detoxing noxious television programs and news from the mind is good for you. The television programs people put into their mind can be the biggest poisons that enter a body.
Television media consists mostly of viral toxins that are designed to create a craving for watching more. A prime example of agenda-based inaccurate TV programming is the recent fear the media created with misconceptions and dubbed “pink slime.”
News networks love to capitalize on people’s lack of knowledge and education. The majority of viewers get their information from the TV and many consider television information as gospel. This advantage makes it super easy to discretely pitch an agenda to viewers in order to achieve desired ratings, gain more viewers, and keep people watching.
Television media also knows they hold a lot of power and abuse it for their own gain in the name of money, ratings, and popularity. Morals, ethics, integrity, and getting ALL of the facts have become increasingly more compromised. Television is one of the quickest, easiest, and most convenient ways to gain information because many viewers believe they can get informed without having to do any research on their own.
Big networks have figured out that negative news gets more attention; therefore they seek it out and hype it up so that it will create a national scare and people’s time will be spent viewing their programs further.
Here’s some thought-provoking news: detox your media information and hydrate your mind with truth and facts. Do a mind cleanse by researching the facts on your own, right from the source or other accurate, valid sources before getting sucked into media-created fears. Complete elimination is an even better way to cleanse the mind but a good flushing out does wonders.
If you still want to try detoxing, get that colonoscopy. Early detection is key in treating colon cancer you know, and you’ll be cured of detoxing curiosity.
Talking about deprivation makes me hungry for a hamburger. DUDE, It’s BEEF.
Get the facts and spread the truth not the lies:
