Adverse Health Effects of Toxins, and Information on Supporting the Body's Detoxification Systems
Video: The Adverse Health Effects of Toxins, and How to Support the Body's Detoxification Systems.
Dr. Pizzorno has been studying the topic of detoxification for 50+ years. Recently, he performed $1500 worth of health tests on 4,500 people (close to $7 million in health tests) to evaluate their levels of toxicity, and the positive results achieved through the use of nutrition-based medicine, natural healthcare and integrative medicine interventions. In the above video and in his below book, The Toxin Solution, he shares what he's learned on the topic of detoxification.

This book discusses the links between toxins and many healthcare concerns, including infertility, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease and diabetes. Information is presented on how toxins such as arsenic, lead, mercury and organophosphates have become some of the leading causes of chronic disease in the industrial world, and how they poison enzyme systems, damage DNA, increase inflammation and oxidative stress, and damage cell membranes. Guidance is provided for assessing total body load and specific toxins, and evidence-based treatment procedures provide recommendations for decreasing toxin load, toxin exposure, and supporting the body's detoxification and elimination processes.
