It’s no secret that the current condition of our toxic world makes it challenging to build sustainable health and avoid disease. This is also largely due to the fact that our soil and plants don’t contain the same nutritional potency they once did.
Even with a clean diet and healthy lifestyle, many people are still subjected to an extreme amount of toxic build-up. Much of the problem stems from unhealthy soils, polluted waters, and foods that have lost so much of their nutrient density.
The time has come to ask ourselves a very important question:
How can we create sustainable health while being faced with unsustainable environmental and agricultural condition?
On this episode of Wellness Force Radio, we explore this topic with Dr. David Minkoff, founder of Body Health. He shows us the tools and strategies we need to maintain optimum health in today’s increasingly toxic world.
Detoxification Should Be A Lifestyle
In recent decades, the occasional 1 week or 30-day detox plan may have been sufficient for cellular cleanup. However, the increasing amount of toxins we are now exposed to calls for a more continuous approach.
If we want to remove this waste from our bodies and build better wellness, detoxing has to be viewed as a lifestyle.
To cleanse these excess toxins that lead to unwanted health effects, we now must aid the body in their removal. This can be achieved in a few ways like making sure we sweat outside or in the sauna, adding detoxifying foods into our diets, and using proper supplementation.
