According the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Human Adipose tissue study, 100% of Americans have the following pollutants/chemicals in their body: OCDD (dioxin), styrene, 1,4-dichlorobenzene, xylene and ethylphenol.
91-98% of Americans have benzene, toluene, chlorobenzene, DDE, dioxins, furan
83% of Americans have PCBs
76% of Americans have 20 or more chemicals in their body.
If you think you have not been exposed to these chemicals, you are wrong. Many of these chemicals are found in every day products, such as household cleaners, dry cleaning, car exhaust, dyes, paints and many others.
You need a detox! A detoxification program or cleanse is a program that helps you rid your body of toxins. It involves supporting your main organs of detoxification with supplements to assist liver, kidney and bowel function. It also involves a hypoallergenic diet for 7 days (or longer if needed), followed by a food elimination diet. This is a great way to identify food allergies in your diet. A more advanced detox would also include B12 shots and/or IV therapies. I usually recommend doing a detoxification program in Spring and Fall.
