Detoxing the Body From the Environmental Toxins
Some of the most dangerous culprits that inhibit a person's ability to achieve optimum health also happen to be omnipresent. Environmental toxins are virtually everywhere given their almost global nature; for instance, people don't think too much about the packaging their food comes in, the contents of their shampoo—or even the air they breathe. Yet, according to a 2010 article in Science, 70 to 90 percent of disease risks likely stem from environmental factors.
Environmental toxins come in two categories—chemical and metallic. These accumulate and reside in the body's fatty tissues and come from medications, food preservatives, and exposure to pesticides, air pollutants, and other harmful toxins. While these toxins come from a variety of sources, initial exposure to them usually begins while a baby is still in the womb.
This webinar will review the biochemistry and genetic expression associated with the detoxification pathways. Particular emphasis will be given to nutrition, nutrient activities, and botanicals for their influence in liver pathways.
