In this challenging time, the best way to boost our health is to unburden ourselves from toxins.
In the last 50 years, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the production and use of chemicals in the United States. Today there are over 87,000 chemicals registered for use on the market. Toxins have found their way in beauty products, household cleaners, carpets, furniture, mattresses, food and house dust. Concurrently, there’s been an increase in the incidence of cancers, diabetes, mood disorders, hormonal imbalances and obesity.
Most Commonly Found Toxins
Heavy metals like mercury, lead, radon, bismuth and arsenic. These heavy metals are prevalent in drinking water, some seafood, rice, vaccines, pesticides, preserved wood, antiperspirant, building materials, dental amalgams and paints. Even in trace amounts, heavy metals can pose significant health threats.
Bisphenol A (BPA). About 93% of Americans have BPA in their bodies. BPA sources include plastics, canned goods, meat packaging, and printed receipts. BPA has been recently replaced in many consumer products with other bisphenols like BPS, which studies are showing to be just as toxic.
Phthalates. Phthalates are a class of chemicals mainly used in scented products to lengthen the life of fragrances and used to make plastics more soft and flexible. Like in toys, plastic bottles, food packaging, shower curtains, blow-up mattresses, carpeting, vinyl flooring, cosmetics and perfumes, candles, air fresheners and sprays. Phthalates affect the reproductive system, contribute to obesity, diabetes, and thyroid irregularities. The US does not currently regulate phthalates.
Parabens. Parabens are commonly used as preservatives in skin and cosmetics products including many expensive “anti-aging skin products” and almost all personal care products that contain water. They are also found in store-bought food. It’s a known endocrine disruptor known for mimicking estrogen, linked to breast cancer.
Mold and mycotoxins. Mold can cause a range of health problems with exposure to only a small amount. Mold grows in warm, moist, indoor areas, and thrives on moisture (humidity and water) and cellulose (wood and paper), thus are most common in showers, behind walls, in crawl spaces and attics. Mold can also be present in foods, like nuts and legumes (especially peanuts), grains like wheat and corn and dairy products (except cultured dairy like yogurt and kefir).
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). VOCs are a group of chemicals that become gas as room temperature, thus easily bringing gas pollutants into the home from a variety of sources. We call this “off gassing” There are over 400 compounds in the VOC family which have been identified in the home and of these over 200 can be found in carpeting! According to the EPA, VOCs tend to be 5X higher in indoor air than outdoor air, likely because they are present in so many household products.
The Effect of Toxins On Your Health
Over time, chronic and daily exposure to toxins add up – like tiny drops in a bucket – contributing to your body’s toxic load, eventually interfering with its ability to function optimally and subsequently leading to harmful effects on your health.
Research is now showing us that toxins play much more of a driving role in creating disease than we realize. According to the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences data, environmental factors cause between 80-90% of all cancers.
Dr. Joseph Pizzorno, one of the world’s leading authorities on science-based natural medicine calls “Toxicity is the primary driver of disease.” Tracey Woodruff, director of UCSFs Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment, was quoted in an interview, saying the environmental toxins might be a missing factor in the cause and prevention of disease.
When your cumulative toxic burden is left unaddressed, it may lead to health challenges. If you’re struggling with a health condition or unexplainable symptom and you don’t know the root cause – toxic overload may be the culprit.
Where Toxins Are Stored
When toxins enter the body, they will be flagged as intruders. Some of the toxins are eliminated through our body’s natural detox pathways – our sweat, urine and stool – but our body has a limited detox capacity, so what the body is not able to remove, it stores.
Many environmental chemicals are lipophilic, which means they get stored in fat tissue. The more toxins accumulated in the body, the more fat is needed to store them. This is a brilliant defense mechanism our bodies use to prevent toxins from freely circulating, but it’s also not a healthy long-term solution for toxins to be stored in our bodies in this manner, where they gradually accumulate over time and eventually cause disease.
And while the body can burn fat, it can’t burn toxins. So during weight loss or detox protocols for example, these previously sequestered toxins begin entering the bloodstream so they can be expelled from the body, however the process can be uncomfortable. People often feel feverish, achy, irritable, etc. This is referred to as a “Herxheimer reaction” and is also the reason why we recommend using binders to help usher these toxins out of the body. This is why safe and effective detoxification is crucial. When you get rid of toxins, you body doesn’t need fat for storage any longer. Therefore, weight loss is one of the benefits of a properly structured detox program.
Should I detox?
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms it is time to detox:
- Anxiety, depression, brain fog, memory loss, unexplained mood swings
- Pain that won’t go away no matter what you do
- Inability to lose weight
- Thyroid problems
- Hormonal swings
- Chronic Fatigue
I never wait for any of the signs and symptoms to start detoxification. I detox twice a year to prevent any conditions and disorder and delay aging process. It has been a part of my lifestyle for last 15 years. I would like you to join me.
Join The 90-Day Detox
The 90-day intensive group detox is designed to go upstream and straight to toxins, such as heavy metals and environment chemicals. These toxins get stored in some of the most critical areas of our body, such as our glands, organs, brain tissue, and cells. When this happens, we experience a variety of symptoms like brain fog, weight gain, insomnia, fatigue, gut issues, inexplicable pain, etc. that can later lead to diseases like cancer, Alzheimers, diabetes, and obesity.
We take a 3-phase approach to detoxing that includes a Prep Phase where we support the body with vital nutrients to strengthen the detox organs, preparing them for the upcoming detox. In Phase 2, aka the Body Phase, we take methylation to the next level, pushing toxins from the body and capturing the toxins so that they can be fully eliminated from the body. In Phase 3, aka the Brain Phase, we focus on cleansing the brain at a cellular level, while nutritionally nourishing the brain’s natural energy system.
