Chemical intolerance from increased exposures are found in 1 in 5 people, and contribute to many different health problems. Anxiety, depression, allergies and panic disorder are associated with increased sensitivity in a recent study, and can be improved with detoxification. The nervous system is sensitive to chemicals, and ADD/ADHD, Alzheimers, Parkinsons, MS and other neurological problems are likely linked to toxic chemicals in the body. For example, we know that Mercury and Aluminum are neurotoxic.
As the environment becomes more toxic, and people are exposed to more chemicals, proper detoxification is important in order to decrease the toxic load in the body, and can improve everyone’s health greatly.
Make sure you are under the care of an experienced Naturopathic Medical Doctor well versed in detoxification, and beware of frauds, fads, and people who aren’t properly trained, as improper detoxification can make you much worse. When you cleanse, you need to not only mobilize the toxins, you must also give your body what it needs in order to effectively eliminate them, rather than just mobilize them to cause damage and oxidation in other parts of the body.
