We are exposed to numerous environmental toxins, more and more each day. Detoxification is very important in order to rid your body of these toxins to prevent damage and improve your health. In this Environmental Toxins Video you can learn more.
Robert Seik, PharmD and owner of Partell Compounding Pharmacy in Las Vegas, received much of his training from the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. Here he learned the damage that environmental toxins cause to our bodies and our health.
Physicians employ different types of detoxification methods in order to rid their patients of environmental chemicals. There are over 80,000 different synthetic chemicals that we are exposed to in our environment and the number is growing every day.
Here's some examples of these toxins. You can breath in Mercury vapor from coal fired electric plants and vapors from burning gasoline. The chem trails from jets contain heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium and lead. Second hand smoke contains numerous toxins and even the water that we shower in and drink are contaminated with pharmaceutical drugs, such as cholesterol lowering drugs and synthetic estrogens that are derived from horses found in birth control pills.
There are endocrine disruptors that modify our hormone systems in a bad way. They can come in and block the function of our own body's hormones. If you drink a cup of hot take out coffee with the plastic lid, you are drinking BPA. BPA is a very potent hormone disruptor. These endocrine disruptors are involved in obesity, diabetes, depleted hormone levels and cognitive disorder and many, many more.
Heavy metal toxicity has been linked to Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease and a whole host of other neurological disorders.
This is why it is important to try to reduce the amount to toxins in the body to a greater degree than the amount you take in. There are many different techniques available to reduce your toxic load. There are clinical treatments available from physicians and there are many over the counter high-quality medications that are available, which are mentioned in the detoxification video.
Be aware and try to eat a healthy diet with very little pesticides, avoid environmental toxin exposure as much as possible and try to rid your body of the toxins in your body with exercise and the other methods of detoxification that are mentioned in Robert's video,
