Reduce Toxicity Through Lifestyle and Herbal Approaches
The environment humans exist within has always impacted our health, positively and negatively. Now, society faces fewer threats from contagious illnesses, poisonous plants or exposure, but more insidious chronic threats in the form of environmental pollution have permeated many aspects of our lives. Such environmental burdens stress the detoxification system to the limits, especially in the chemically sensitive.Pesticides are present in foods, while every piece of packaging material or breath of industrial air places a cumulative burden on our detoxification system.
There are a number of steps we can take to minimize toxic exposures, especially for those with chemical sensitivities. These include choosing organic food where possible, avoiding rapidly outgassing plastic products and using organic shampoo free of toxic chemicals, including potentially nerve impairing DEA.
While reducing exposure to toxins is a great first step to improved detoxification, contamination of the global ecosystem is such that safe levels of exposure will never be achieved for many substances. Chronic toxin exposure and pollution creates a body burden that you do not need to carry. Toxin avoidance combined with the right herbal supplements can helps improve detoxification capacity
