Ask Dr. Kealy: Living Toxin-Free

Posted in:

“I recently cut meat and alcohol out of my diet, along with sugar/high fructose corn syrup, gluten grains, and dairy. I diligently exercise for 30-60 minutes a day, 5 days per week, and am managing my stress more regularly through meditation and yoga.  Is there still a need for me to go through the Balance 3H Plus®detox?”

The Body Burden

Yes, even with your best efforts, we become toxic simply because of the world in which we live. Scientists have dubbed this prevalent health risk as the “body burden”. Our blood is constantly working to filter out toxins. The body burden may be unsettling, but it is unfortunately the reality we live in. The water we drink could be toxic, and cleaning products contain harmful chemicals which pollute our home and work environments.

Chemicals + GMOs

Most of our foods are sprayed with chemicals and qualify as genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Even if you are careful to avoid these chemicals at home, when you go out to eat you may be eating a chicken breast pumped full of steroids and antibiotics. Animals are often stuffed (i.e. fed) with GMO corn or other grains to make them grow faster and become fat quicker. Not only has food become more toxic, but our cosmetics are heavily laden with health and hormone disrupting chemicals. Every day a woman will be exposed to around 500 synthetic chemicals. 1

Exposure to Toxins

As you can imagine, this incessant exposure to toxins can lead to disease, but it can also make us resistant to weight loss. Toxins are stored in fat cells. This means that overweight individuals are more toxic than the leaner versions of themselves.
