Last Updated 3/21/2022in Detox Naturally, Health Studies

Look around you now, and what do you see? Technology and industry are everywhere. Our world is blanketed in many shapes and forms of plastics, metals, and chemicals. Whether you realize it or not, we are constantly exposed to environmental toxins, many of which have health effects that we are still not aware of.

With the rise of our industrial society, there has also been an exponential rise in toxins in the environment. These days it seems that almost everyone is struggling with unexplained health issues, and this will likely only increase with time as our exposure to hidden environmental toxins continues to grow.

Now, although this might sound frightening, the good news is that with proper detoxification practices, you can reduce the toxin load on your body and begin to get to the root of your health problems once and for all. In this article, we will walk you through the complex world of environmental toxins and give you all the tools you need to begin your journey towards a healthier life with the wisdom from natural medicine!

What is Environmental Toxicity?

We live in a toxic soup, and often we may not even be aware of these ever-present dangers. Our products, houses, clothing, and food were more natural and organically based in traditional times. But in recent times, nearly everything is made from synthetic materials or has been adulterated by heavy metals, pesticides, preservatives and other toxins.

These toxins have also now infiltrated our air and water, creating a nearly constant bubble of exposure around us. This exposure then seeps into our foods and eventually into our body through what we eat, drink, and put on our skin. It is essential to detoxify both your environment and your body more than ever before.

The Main Sources of Environmental Toxicity

The sources of environmental toxins are all around us, including Wi-Fi signals, pesticides, heavy metals, plastics, 5G, electropollution, car pollution, and factory pollution. But even past these significant sources of toxicity, we are also constantly exposed to toxins through our household cleaning products, personal care products, pots and pans, water, food, and air.

Toxins Common in Water and Food:

  • Arsenic
  • Atrazine
  • Dioxins
  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Chlorine
  • Fluoride
  •  PFAs
  • Glyphosates
  • Aluminum
  • Titanium
  • PCBs
  • DDT

Common Household Toxins:

  • Asbestos
  • BPA
  • Phthalates
  • Radon
  • VOCs
  • Heavy metals
  • Pesticides
  • Mold
  • Chloroform
  • Bleach
  • Ammonia
  • Common Airborne Toxins:
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Ground-level ozone
  • Noxious gases
  • Chemtrails
  • Particular matter
  • Dust
  • Radiation
  • Aerosols
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Nitrogen dioxide
  • Sulfur dioxide

These many toxins can be found in your laundry detergent, soaps, lotions, pots, pans, sponges, headphones, blankets, clothing, tissues, aerosol sprays, water bottles, shoes, cars, soil, toys, and the list goes on and on! The sources of environmental toxins are an ever-growing list.

In addition to the many physical sources of environmental toxins, it is also important to note the mental and emotional toxins that we are exposed to constantly. So much of our media and news is filled with fearful imagery and harmful speech, and when we are constantly exposed to this, it can also have a toxic impact on the mind and soul. Toxins are not just physical; they are also mental, emotional, and spiritual.

The Health Risks of Environmental Toxicity

Toxins are often microscopic and can enter into every cell of your body. Given their continuous presence, they can often have long-lasting impacts on your mental and physical health. By growing your awareness of these risks, you can also identify the root cause of your health issues and begin a vital treatment process.

The Physical Health Effects from Environmental Toxins:

  • Endocrine disorders
  • Respiratory disorders
  • Cancer
  • Fertility and reproductive issues
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Obesity
  • Auto-immune disorders

The Mental Health Effects from Environmental Toxins:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Autism
  • Neurological disorders
  • Neurodegenerative diseases

Besides the above health issues, research has also shown that aluminum builds up in the body from amalgam fillings, titanium implants, and adulterated foods, vaccines, and waterwhich causes us to become similar to an antenna. This can attract increasingly more harmful toxins, which eventually leads us to go neurologically downhill.

Additionally, many of our pharmaceutical medications and vaccines are filled with additives, heavy metals, and harmful chemicals that can lead to severe issues in the long term. This is why at Inner Harmony Wellness Center, we work heavily with detoxifying from COVID shots and the impacts from long COVID. We cannot deny environmental toxins' physical, mental, and spiritual effects. And if you want access to a radiant and healthy life, the process of detoxification is essential.

How to Test for Environmental Toxins in Your Body

The first step to detoxification is testing your body and determining your toxic exposure. The body can be tested for environmental toxins through blood and urine testing. Additionally, you can assess your toxin exposure by checking your local environment or even testing the glaze on your car windshield after it rains.

Look around you and notice how much we are bathed in electro and magnetic fields (EMF). You likely are reading this on a computer or phone that uses Wi-Fi, and nearby are radio and cell towers bathing you in this harmful electrosmog.

At the end of the day, we all likely have some level of exposure to environmental toxins. It is essential for all of us to go through periodic detoxes and take care of the body to counteract these impacts as much as possible.

How to Detox Your Body and Mind from Environmental Toxins

1.      Clean Up Your Local Environment, Food, and Products

The first step to detoxifying from environmental toxins is to clean up your environment. Look around your home and see what products or items you have that are exceptionally high in toxins. Some of the primary sources of toxins in the home include pots, pans, and utensils. The products you use to eat will also absorb into your body to some degree.

If possible, try to buy only organic products and minimize plastics, packaged foods, and additives. Use a high-quality water filter to clean your water and an air filter in your most-used rooms to clean your air. It is also essential to investigate your personal care products and try to switch to fragrance-free, natural, and herbal products instead.

2.      Filter Your Air with Plants or an Indoor Air Filter

The air is one of the primary toxin sources that we are exposed to daily. By keeping plants in your home or using an indoor air filter, you can gently cleanse your air of these toxins and improve your overall health. It is also essential to be aware of EMF pollution and try to place your electronic devices away from where you sleep or eat.

3.      Support Detoxification with Healing Foods

Certain foods have a natural capacity to increase detoxification in the body and improve your overall health. A high fiber diet can bind to toxins and increase excretion. To begin, try eating a diet filled with a rainbow of fruits and vegetables that will nourish your organs and support your overall health. Other excellent foods to emphasize are cruciferous vegetables, garlic, turmeric, berries, lemon, green tea, ginger, cabbage, and beets. Additionally, make sure you are drinking enough water to support detoxification through your kidneys as well.

4.      Increase Toxic Waste Excretion from Your Body

Another critical way to increase the excretion of toxins from your body is by increasing sweat. Sweat often gets a bad reputation, but it is actually vital for your health. The more you sweat, the more toxins are released from your body. Some fantastic ways to increase this process are through regular exposure to a sauna or steam bath.

Also, regular exercise is essential for sweat detoxification and improving your internal systems' functioning. Vigorous breathing techniques and self-massage are also crucial for stimulating the flow of energy in the body and the excretion of toxins from your blood, lymph, and respiratory system.

5.      Utilize Detoxifying Supplements and Herbs

After implementing the above recommendations, you can also add a range of supportive supplements and herbs to increase the detox process and improve your overall health. But it is essential to get guidance on this from a qualified holistic medicine doctor who can tailor formulas to your individual needs. Unfortunately, there are many gimmicks and scam detox products on the market today, but with expert natural health guidance, you can sift through the weeds and find the right products for your health.
