Detox is a hot topic in the health world and especially this time of year. But what does it really entail and how do you do it effectively?
In this episode I will talk with Wendy Myers about the top 5 toxins you want to block from your body, the common symptoms that tell us we need a detox, the best ways to detox and the ultimate supplements to clear out toxins.
Wendy Myers is the founder of myersdetox.com and the creator of the Myers Detox Protocol. She is a detox guru, functional diagnostic nutritionist and NES Bioenergetic Practitioner based in Los Angeles.
She is the bestselling author of Limitless Energy: How to Detox Toxic Metals to End Exhaustion and Chronic Fatigue. She uses Hair Mineral Analysis and other functional medical tests to design custom protocols for her clients. Wendy is also the host of the popular Myers Detox Protocol Podcast and co-host of the Supercharged Podcast with Harry Massey.
Wendy’s interest in nutrition began with the death of her father from esophageal cancer. Intuitively, she knew his chemo, radiation, and ten medications played a role in his premature death. It became her mission to find out what made him sick, why he died, what role medications played in his demise, and how she could avoid the same fate. The more Wendy learned, the more she realized that food, detoxification and natural healing modalities must be used to compliment the advances in modern medicine. And importantly, that health is not merely about the absence of disease and symptoms, but about having optimum health, energy and vitality.
