Fatigue, joint pain, and headaches are 3 common symptoms of toxicity or weak detoxification processes. Each day we may be exposed to toxins that include pesticides, food additives or preservatives, chemicals in household cleaning or beauty products, gasoline, endogenous hormones, antibiotics, medications and more. A recent study found that the average Canadian can have as many as 53 chemicals stored in their body.1,2 Links have been considered between the exposure of toxic chemicals and certain types of cancer, asthma and neuro-development disorders such as cognitive decline and ADHD.3,4

The Revivelife Approach

Sulfur-Containing Foods: Sulfur-containing foods ike onions, garlic, and broccoli, enhance the excretion of heavy metals like cadmium.5
Chlorella: This food s a type of algae that may increase heavy metal detox according to some animal studies.6
Herbs: Herbs like cilantro which enhances excretion of heavy metals such as lead, and chemicals including phthalates and insecticides.7,8
Glutathione: Glutathione is a major antioxidant involved in detoxification can be promoted by increasing sulfur-rich foods as above, using supplements like NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine) or IV glutathione.
Advanced diagnostic testing which is often not found at your traditional medical doctor’s office helps address your baseline, targeted approach that is right for you. Testing includes heavy metals and organic acids which assess your body’s detoxification capacity.
