Unfortunately, heavy metals, such as aluminum, mercury, and lead, have found their way into our bodies due to our environment. Add to that mycotoxins from mold and endocrine-disrupting Bisphenol A (BPA) found just about everywhere, and you have three of the worst offenders leading to toxic overload.
Possibly the most concerning factor behind all these chemicals is there are few to no barriers in the process to prevent chemicals from being used in our everyday items. Meaning, your body is slowly taking in small amounts of new chemicals and toxic buildup over time.
Toxic overload is a war of attrition.
This constant chemical bombardment your body is fighting every day just to keep you healthy is the reason you should detox. We need to reduce our toxic burden wherever possible, support our body’s natural detox pathways, and incorporate detox binders into our health routine.
I want to focus on this last strategy—using binders for detox—because I’ve seen binders work well in my personal practice, and I want to share them with you.
