Toxic chemicals such as BPA, are common place throughout planet earth. New babies born – before they have taken one breath – already have in their bodies about 280 toxic chemicals, many of which are toxic to the nervous system and many which are carcinogenic.
In our office, along with screening for food allergies/sensitivities, excess pathologic microbes, excess toxic metal and blood sugar dysfunction, we will check on a patients toxic chemical status, all with autonomic response muscle testing. If need be, a laboratory test can be done either via blood or via urine for evaluation of toxic chemical accumulation. Urine test will look at the amount of toxic chemicals you have built up, cost about $150 and the blood test – cost about $300 – will check if your body has built up antibodies to the toxic chemicals, a much worse situation.
If positive then certain supplements to help the liver detoxify the body would be in order. As most chronic conditions do not have just one significant factor going on, there is likelihood that in addition to liver detoxification one also will need to modify their diet to remove foods that are problematic, get the bowels working better if need be, remove overgrowth of pathogenic microbes such as yeast and detoxify from toxic metal accumulation as well if indicated.
