WE ARE LIVING IN A TOXIC WORLD
I have a General Health Questionnaire that use from my Doctors book “Cracking the Metabolic Code”. There are 12 categories and one of them is Environmental Impacts. A lot of people score really poorly here and I bet most people have no clue how much this can affect their health, energy levels, memory, and fat loss just to name a few. In regards to body fat we store toxins there, so if you cannot properly deal with the toxins and remove them the body will store them to protect the person from dumping a bunch of toxins in the blood stream. Below is a clickable image of a screenshot of part of the Environmental Impacts category.
MITIGATE YOUR EXPOSURE
Here is a list of the questions that are asked.
DO YOU LIVE IN AN INDUSTRIALIZED AREA?
DO YOU USE PESTICIDES, HERBICIDES, OR INSECTICIDES IN YOUR HOME OR ON YOUR LAWN?
DO YOU HAVE 6 OR MORE ALMAGAM (MERCURY, SILVER) FILLINGS IN YOUR TEETH?
IS YOUR WATER SUPPLY CHLORINATED AND FLUORINATED?
DO YOU DRINK UNFILTERED WATER?
IS THE WATER IN YOUR HOME UNFILTERED?
DO YOU WORK IN A JOB THAT EXPOSES YOU TO VARIOUS SOLVENTS OR POLLUTANTS?
HAVE YOU LIVED OR WORKED IN A NEW BUILDING IN THE LAST 5 YEARS?
DO YOU EAT PRODUCE WITHOUT WASHING IT?
DO YOU EAT LAKE FISH OR TUNA MORE THAN ONCE A MONTH?
DO YOU DRINK FROM PLASTIC CONTAINERS REGULARLY?
DO YOU MICROWAVE IN PLASTIC CONTAINERS OR WITH PLASTIC WRAP ON A REGULAR BASIS?
DO YOU EXERCISE OUTDOORS IN HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS?
HAVE YOU BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH ADHD OR HAVE DIFFICULTY WITH MEMORY?
DO YOU SMOKE?
DO YOU USE OR HAVE YOU USED ALUMINUM COOKWARE?
DO YOU EAT CANNED FOODS FREQUENTLY?

Many of these areas can be improved upon such as getting better deodorant
getting a good water filter like a Berkey for your drinking water
getting certified organic fruits and vegetables and washing them before eating them
removing amalgams ( I have 4 removed)
eating less lake fish or none at all
no plastic in the microwave, etc.
What I like to also have people take is a product that helps with the elimination of toxins because it supports the detoxification pathways.
Pure PaleoCleanse Plus™ functional food powder contains a comprehensive combination of nutrients, antioxidants, herbs, fiber, and fruit and vegetable extracts that support the overall metabolic detoxification process while balancing phase I and II detoxification pathways.* This product aids the body’s defenses against xenobiotics, pollutants and other harmful substances, as well as against remnants of pharmaceutical drugs, excess steroid hormones, and the byproducts of normal, healthy metabolism.*
