Toxicity Truths – Powerful Functional Medicine Insight

It’s definitely one of the most common, true root causes of disease:  Toxicity.

In today’s modern “better living through chemistry” world, we may be exposed to more toxic threats on a daily basis than early man had to deal with over a year – or even a lifetime.   Toxicity is an important functional medicine concept to master .

Many practitioners default to extremes of perspective in toxicity, either believing that the body is invincible in the face of today’s chemical onslaught or believing that the body is highly vulnerable and in need of acute protection from all chemical exposure.  I believe (as is often the case) that the truth is somewhere in between these extremes. Our unique experience of toxicity as individuals is going to vary dramatically.  Due to our varying genetics, nutrition, health history, and collective toxic exposure (because most toxicity is synergistically harmful!).

Check out the video below to learn some pearls you can implement in your practice right away.  Then please share below what most resonates with you in this video.  I am very interested in your perspective.

Thanks very much for joining in the fun and clinical education!   Congratulations to Meghna Thakkar Joshi who won free tuition for the July SAFM Semester as part of this monthly FB Live video offering.

    Hi there, thank you so much for the amazing content in the video. I have a client with acute symptoms of adrenal fatigue and clinical hypothyroidism.

    What I loved about this video is that YOU GET IT. You totally understand that health apocalypse that I about to happen due to the chemicals that we have placed in our environment that have upset the balance. YOU GET how our natural body systems work and how the toxic onslaught has recked havoc with our natural systems. YOU GET IT that as health coaches we have to step up to the plate and do something about it. I am honored to be learning from you and look forward to more of your videos!
