We all have created a TOXIC BURDEN over a lifetime of poor food choices,
splurging, toxic exposure, lack of “appropriate” detoxification etc.
As I’ve become interested in environmental medicine, o
ne of the key issues
I’ve been appreciating is that this “Toxic Burden” not dealt with appropriately will not only create chronic disease BUT ALSO keep one from healing.

Personally it was an eye opener to find not only my severe mold contamination,
but also heavy metal toxicity (mercury, lead and arsenic),
my Glyphosate level was off the chart (main ingredient in Roundup and
I helped start GMO Free Washington). This was because I never had specifically detoxed from Glyphosphate in past even though I was living an organic lifestyle.
My toxic profile was also quite abnormal with high levels of plastics, organophosphates, and more.
 With specific detoxification geared at these abnormalities, my levels to most have come down nicely !
