How To Reduce Your Toxic Burden And Prevent Exposure

Environmental toxins can wreak havoc on your body. And our bodies can only handle so much. There is a threshold, and when it’s passed, toxins can’t effectively be processed out of the body and are left lingering. When our toxic load is maxed out we start to see symptoms and dysfunctions. In today’s episode, I speak with Dr. Casey Means, Harriet Washington, and Maggie Ward about reducing your toxic exposure, the compounded effect of toxic exposures, and more. Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and cofounder of metabolic health company Levels, an associate editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a lecturer at Stanford University. Her mission is to maximize human potential and reverse the epidemic of preventable chronic disease by empowering individuals with tools that can facilitate a deep understanding of our bodies and inform personalized and sustainable dietary and lifestyle choices. Harriet Washington has been the Shearing Fellow at the University of Nevada's Black Mountain Institute, a Research Fellow in Medical Ethics at Harvard Medical School, a senior research scholar at the National Center for Bioethics at Tuskegee University, and a visiting scholar at DePaul University College of Law. She is the author of Deadly Monopolies, Infectious Madness, Medical Apartheid, and A Terrible Thing to Waste, a book that looks at the devastating consequences of environmental racism—and what we can do to remedy its toxic effects on marginalized communities. Maggie Ward, MS, RD, LDN, is the Nutrition Director at The UltraWellness Center. She holds a master’s degree in nutrition from Bastyr University and focuses on using whole foods for holistic nutrition therapy. In addition, she completed her requirements to become a registered dietitian at Westchester Medical Center in New York. This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and Beekeeper’s.
