Excessive toxins in our environment have contaminated our air, water, food, cleaning supplies, and cosmetics, to name a few. The result of too many toxic exposures is toxic load, the total burden on the various body organs whose job it is to filter out and remove toxins (e.g., lungs, liver, lymph, kidneys). Other organs such as the heart, thyroid, and pancreas are also at risk of toxic overload.
A toxin is anything that doesn’t agree with us. Although toxins are poisons that contaminate our bodies, there are also toxic thoughts, relationships, and environments that can trigger a toxic stress response. In addition to external toxins, there are internal toxins that are the by-products of our metabolism. When healthy, the body (e.g., liver, kidneys,lymph) can handle their excretion. But when stressed by external toxins such as chemicals (formaldehyde, benzene) and heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, aluminum), disease can result.
