Josh Macin: How To Detox Yourself From A Toxic World

“Most people are dealing with a massive amount of toxins in their system; it's impossible not to have any. The chemicals in our tap water, amalgam fillings, GMOs, pesticides, vaccinations, seafood, and most skincare are all synthesized products that we are inundated with on the skin, in the mouth, in the body, and it affects us on a deep, biochemical level because we are creatures of the earth and we are meant to be using natural products from nature. We're not meant to be synthesizing things for maximum profits, minimum costs, and the highest turnaround.” – Josh Macin

Power Quotes From The Show

[click_to_tweet tweet=”‘No one thing is going to change your life; healing is a process and a journey where you have to address all of the possible roots of mental, emotional, and physical toxicity.' – Founder of The Detox Dudes, Josh Macin” quote=”‘No one thing is going to change your life; healing is a process and a journey where you have to address all of the possible roots of mental, emotional, and physical toxicity.' – Founder of The Detox Dudes, Josh Macin”]

Our Birthright To Feel Good On This Planet

“It is our birthright to feel good on this planet; not to feel good all the time because this planet has both the light and dark, there is pain and a lot that we have to alchemize. But if you don't feel vibrant in that journey; if you don't, on average, feel like you're living on top of your wounds, pain, and fatigue, then you're not in your given birthright which is vitality. Check-in with yourself; what have you been putting into the machine that is your body? Whatever you put into this machine, you get. Everything you put into the machine slowly accumulates to either make you weak, tired, and sick or strong and healthy. No one thing is going to change your life; healing is a process and a journey where you have to address all of the possible roots of mental, emotional, and physical toxicity.” – Josh Macin

Finding Out What Really Matters In Life

“We are losing connection to our ancestors, our lineage, our old ways, and our earthly laws. People don't realize how much we're harming ourselves by harming the planet. We're just stuck in this money mindset and everything we're doing in our modern world is chasing an agenda of profits but this is not the way we're meant to live. The coronavirus and the quarantine are almost allowing us to get back to our old ways and how humans are meant to live as we're given this opportunity to introspect and reflect on the way that we've been pillaging the earth. Personally, through my pain and all that I've suffered, I've come to realize that all that really matters is love, peace, fun, joy, transformation, healing, being centered, being connected to the divine, and the earth. These are the only things that matter and it takes pain for people to get there in life.”  – Josh Macin

The Incredible Wonder That Is Life

“People assume that facing their shadows and darkness is scarier than having them linger in the closet for the rest of their life. Personally, I think it's scarier to have them in the closet for the rest of their life. I think people are terrified of their own power and the sheer lifeforce that lies within. People are terrified of how complex, extraordinary, and magical the body is but if we understood how much is possible in this lifetime; to have access to the inside of our breath, heart, and third eye, it would shatter the body if we had access to all of it in one moment. Accessing all of these points in the mind, body, and soul is a gradual process.” – Josh Macin

About Josh Macin

Josh Macin: How To Detox Yourself From A Toxic WorldJosh Macin was the 2010 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion and the 2012 Pan-American champion. Suddenly, in October of 2013, he began to experience debilitating panic attacks, suicidal despair, and gut-wrenching anxiety. After pharmaceutical drugs provided no relief, he found himself on a hero’s journey – traveling to the corners of the earth experimenting with some of the world’s most powerful hallucinogens.

When neither ayahuasca, float tanks, fasting, meditation, colon cleaning, nor yoga could provide him with relief he began to lose faith. In a surreal sequence of events that transpired three years after beginning the journey, he found out about heavy metal poisoning and started a comprehensive detoxification protocol. Now, alive and well to tell the tale, Josh has created – a company devoted to helping people overcome toxicity.
