There’s really no question about it – we live in a toxic world.
The fact is, we are born into a toxic environment. Studies have confirmed that over 200 chemicals are found in the umbilical blood of a newborn infant and radiation spills even thousands of miles away affect the food supply close to home.
We could debate the details and severity of environmental pollution, the effects on human health and the best solution to detoxify our lives but the one piece that goes completely overlooked is the body’s ability to adapt.
You see, living things, including human beings, are amazing. The human body is a self healing, self organizing, self regulating system. The hallmark of all living organisms is their ability to adapt to their environment, survive and thrive.
It’s not as simple as toxin A causes problem B. There are thousands of people who have smoked for years and did not develop cancer. This doesn’t mean the chemicals associated were not toxic; it means that person was able to adapt to the level of toxicity introduced into their body.
What can we do instead of just focusing on removing toxins?
