Modern life exposes us to a plethora of environmental pollutants on a daily basis. These toxins can burden our systems and can present as a multitude of symptoms and health challenges. However many of the modern popular approaches to detoxification are ineffective, hard on the body, and in some cases unsafe. Learn how to support your body’s own natural detoxification processes through food and herbs and how to shift your lifestyle for sustained health. We will cover basic physiology of human detoxification with a focus on the liver, the pitfalls of popular detox fads, traditional western herbal approach to toxic overload, and scientifically-backed nutritional strategies.
