“In the United States, there are about 84,000 chemicals that are registered for use in this country. Not all of them are actively being used but that’s how many are registered. And, the vast majority of those chemicals have never been adequately tested for safety.” (6:30)
“We have to also turn our attention to the products that we are using and what we’re possibly being exposed to at home and all the places that we can actively address in our lives and start paying attention to that.” (16:34)
“If we give our body that chance, it can actually eliminate a lot of these chemicals on its own. But, the emphasis is on ‘if we give it the chance.” (24:42)
“When we marry or couple these avoidance behaviors with really focusing in on supporting our detoxification pathways through good nutrition and lifestyle practices like sweating and sleeping…then we can have a far more pronounced impact on our ability to address the toxins we are exposed to and it doesn’t have to be hard.” (33:26)
