Detoxification Imbalances

Detoxification is the process by which we rid our bodies of the harmful substances that we encounter  simply as a part of living. Humans create toxins as normal byproducts, absorb toxins with our food and medicine, and encounter toxins in the environment.  Our ability to clear toxins from the body developed in an environment where food additives, preservatives, pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, chemical drugs, chemotherapeutic agents, dyes, solvents, petroleum-derived pollutants, and chlorinated toxins such as dioxin did not exist and poisoning with heavy metals was rare.  In contrast, the CDC now reports that 100% of the Americans have dangerous toxic chemicals stored in our bodies.

Due to  tremendous genetic variation in detoxification enzymes, we cannot assume that any two people will respond the same way to a given substance at a given exposure level.   Each of us has a unique tolerance for toxic substances, based on our genetics, our  nutritional status and our general health.  When this tolerance is exceeded, the body’s waste processing system becomes overburdened and no longer functions adequately.
