Toxins

You are what you eat and what you breathe!

It is so difficult to live life and eat without having more exposure to toxins. From the air we breathe to foods we eat, toxins are hidden.

In our office one way we look at toxic exposure levels is by using hair analysis, which provides us with a general overview of the heavy metal toxicities.  At this point we can discuss the best methods for detoxifying the body; homeopathics, herbs, infrared saunas, and other cleanses.

Toxins create inflammation in the body and interrupt the normal cellular function.

Most of us need to have a regular regime of detoxifying the body twice a year.

I was personally amazed to find my own heavy metal toxicity was through the charts, especially mercury!  It took me quite awhile to reduce my levels of mercury.
