“Detox”…it’s become a trendy buzzword lately, but it’s actually a very important step that should be a part of everyone’s health regimen. If you ignore detox, your health could suffer.
With excessive toxin exposure and stress, our natural detox pathways can become compromised. The need for detoxification is based upon the principle that immunodeficiency, inflammatory and degenerative diseases from allergies to arthritis to Alzheimer’s result from the toxic, accumulative effects of poisonous substances and pathogens within the body.
According to reports by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the average person now has 212 environmental chemicals in their blood — things like mercury, lead, cadmium and industrial chemicals.
The World Health Organization has studies that show we have over 700 chemicals on average in our bodies. No matter which study you choose, the prognosis is grim.
Environmental toxins such as pesticides, preservatives, heavy metals and industrial toxins are mostly fat soluble or “lipophilic”. Such lipophilic toxins have been associated with hormone disruption, immune system suppression, reproductive disorders, cancer, and other diseases.
If you have a lack of energy, brain fog or are suffering from a chronic disease or condition, toxin accumulation could be contributing to the problem.
