The Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, states that our bodies contain approximately 20,000 chemicals that cannot be metabolized. These chemicals are stored in the fat cells of the body and continue to accumulate. As more and more chemicals are stored within the body, you can begin to experience a variety of medical issues.
Toxins can wreak havoc on the endocrine system, digestive system and the nervous system. Toxins have been found to be responsible for nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and even cancer. The symptoms of environmental toxicity are varied –
The treatment options available depend greatly on the symptoms you are suffering from. However, everyone can benefit from a detoxification program. The basic principles of a detox program are to identify and remove the toxins causing your health issues and restore nutrients to your body.
Hormone replacement therapy can help by correcting hormone deficiencies caused by toxin exposure. Some symptoms of hormone deficiency include weight gain, fatigue, night sweats, mood swings and sexual dysfunctions. Using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can correct hormone deficiencies, thus alleviating some of the symptoms associated with toxin exposure.
Nutritional supplements increase the nutritional foundation of the body. The nutrients from your foods and supplements are the building blocks of good health. When you have a nutritional deficiency, you may experience decreased immunity, increased pain and fatigue.
Lifestyle modifications are often recommended as part of your environmental toxicity healing regimen. Your integrative physician will offer suggestions to help your body heal naturally. These may include dietary changes, supplementation, stopping unhealthy activities, such as smoking and alcohol consumption, and exercise recommendation. Gentle stretches, moderate exercise and herbal supplements may also be suggested.
