Wait, I thought my body already detoxes on its own?
Yep, your body has a solid natural detoxification process it is always going through. Pathways through the liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph, colon, and even skin are stellar ways the body keeps things clean.
However, because of the foods we eat, pesticide residues, the toxic chemicals in our water and food, our "toxicity bucket" as I call it gets filled up over the years and this puts a HUGE strain on these detoxification organs.
The CDC found detectable levels of over than 200 environmental chemicals like pesticides, flame retardants and tobacco smoke by-products in the blood and urine of large groups of people.
Some of these substances are known carcinogens, while others can mess with hormones and organ function.
When you add these substances on top of a diet high in boxed and canned foods, refined sugars and grains and highly inflammatory foods, it is not surprising that chronic disease is exponentially growing and people are sicker than ever!
Our beautifully crafted bodies were not designed to process the vast amounts of toxic chemicals, heavy metals and disruptive substances that we face today.
Specific chemicals, like those from plastics, are actually stored in our fat cells for years!
