There are upwards of 70,000 new chemicals in our environment that were not here even thirty years ago; many of which we are exposed to on a daily basis. Not only do we not fully understand the short and long-term impacts of them individually on our health, it is also unclear how they affect us in combination and it would be nearly impossible to determine because of the variability with which each of us may be exposed on a regular basis or even in the short term.
That said, so called, persistent organic pollutants, or POPs, are now being recognized as a link to the chronic diseases on the rise today, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease and more; by doing damage to our cells and impairing their function as well as getting stored in our fat cells, promoting their growth and accumulation.
Combine these with the food choices we make, the products we apply to our bodies, and the stress we face every day, which also gets stored in the form of negative biochemical reactions, and you can understand how their gradual buildup can promote sickness and disease.
Clean eating and a healthy lifestyle that helps to manage stress are the best strategies to minimize the effects of toxic exposure. In addition, periodic detoxification to help safely rid the body of toxic buildup that results from day-to-day living can help.
I offer two-week and three-week detox programs that provide the nutrition your body needs to safely eliminate toxicity that may be showing up as symptoms like difficulty in losing weight, dull skin or breakouts, digestive problems, fatigue, muscle or joint aches, brain fog or moodiness, and more.
