There are lots of myths out there about environmental toxins, detoxing, and whether or not it’s even a necessary thing to worry about.
So, let’s jump right in and discuss these, one by one. (and be sure to check out the Special Invite at the very end...)
My Body Is Designed to Rid Itself of Toxins – Without Any Help From Me
This particular myth is, in part, true.
Your body is designed to detoxify it’s internal environment, and it accomplishes this task through various specific pathways:
In fact, your liver is the powerhouse for the entire detoxification process. However, it’s also where things can go wrong.
Celiac Disease is a chronic autoimmune condition - one in which your body attacks your intestines & other tissues to the point you can no longer absorb nutrients. It makes no difference how healthy your diet is - you'll still be unwell.
The only cure is being 100% gluten-free. (That said - we now know that gluten-free diet is a critical first step for ANYONE with autoimmunity!)
If you don't have an autoimmune condition - you're lucky! But consider for a moment that while Celiac Disease affects roughly 1 in 6 of the population - Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity is up to 20 times MORE common!
Which means you might not be as lucky as you think).
