How Toxicity Sabotages Your Health w. Christina Santini CN, RYT, CTT (Ep 34)

Last Updated:

Key Information

Detox is essential for true health

Detox is the process of eliminating toxins from the body that sabotage health and well-being.

Toxins are everywhere in the environment

Toxins are chemicals that interfere with the body’s functions and hormones. They can be found in the air, water, food, cosmetics, and household products.

Toxins affect the thyroid and the gut

Toxins can impair the thyroid gland, which regulates metabolism and energy. They can also cause gut dysbiosis, which is an imbalance of bacteria in the digestive system.

Detox can be achieved with nutrition and supplements

Detox can be supported by eating organic, whole foods and avoiding processed foods. Supplements such as S. Boulardi, Caprylic Acid, Black Walnut, and Wild Oregano can help with gut Candida.
