  • A brief introduction of yourself and your service.
  • A benchmark investigation of industrial chemicals, pollutants and pesticides in umbilical cord blood by the Environmental Working Group (a N American watch dog group) back in 2005 showed that 287 chemicals were detected in umbilical cord blood of newborns. They include pesticides, consumer product ingredients, waste materials from burning coal, gasoline, or garbage.  
  • Remember, these are only 6 out of the 212 chemicals that CDC round in the blood and urine of most Americans! They make us tired, lethargic, brain fog.Detox programs are important because they help our bodies to detoxify and normalize these toxins. They help our bodies to handle our day-to-day toxic load so that we can live a healthy live. 
  • Here is the conclusion of the study:“We found definitive evidence indicating that a diabetogenic shift occurred in the biochemistry of adipose tissues from Vietnam veterans who were exposed to dioxin-containing Agent Orange herbicide preparation.”But what is more important to note is that the PCB levels in these veteran are not that much different fro the general public.

  • More info on lymph cleanse: - lymphatic cleansing is recommended if you are doing a liver detox
  • For certain occasions, you may want to have them fill out an application form with a few questions to better qualify those who are really interested in your service, and not just wanting to get freebies. Be clear that it is about seeing how your programs can support them, so they go in not expecting to have everything solved in 30 min…

    2. 2. Libby Doubler, CHC, AADPYour life is out of balance. One day you look around and do not like what you see.Overweight, alone, and depressed. What to do? • You have the desire, but don’t know where to start. • You’re tired of trying, so close to giving up. • You know you could succeed, if you had the right support. • A Certified Health Coach can be just what you need!
    3. 3. My Personal StoryLike most of us, I’ve always loved food. I remember eating an entire box of donutsin one sitting. However, about 11 years ago, my wonderful husband needed care byme while he went through 2 bouts of cancer. It was my privilege. However, I didn’tnotice how much weight I was gaining, nutrition for myself was non-existent. Ibecame very sick and intolerances to food became apparent. I was toxic!After he passed away about 7 years ago, I had to look at myself and didn’t like whatI saw. I was sick, sad, obese and felt very alone. It was time to get to work—andthat is exactly what I did. On the left is me 7 toxic years and 60 pounds ago On the right, this is me now. I’m not smiling because I’m thinner. I’m smiling because I’m happy again.
    4. 4. Our Topic TodayDetox has become a popular topic in the health and wellness field. This class willhelp demystify the concepts of ―toxicity‖ and ―detoxification‖, and teach you a fewthings you can do right away, without any fancy supplements or programs. Toxins and our health Sources of environmental toxins and routes of exposure Symptoms of toxicity How to reduce your exposure How to use herbs to aid the body’s natural detoxification process The basic principle of Silent, But Deadly – Detox 101 How you can detox safely with Silent, But Deadly – Detox 101
    5. 5. Definition of ToxinsEnvironmental toxins: poisonous substances that come fromoutside of the body and can be lumped into two categories: Chemicals – plastics, pesticides, gasoline, cleaning supplies – substances that should not be in your body. Metals – heavy metals e.g. mercury, lead
    6. 6. How Toxic Are You?Unfortunately the question is no longer IF we are toxic. The real question is HOWtoxic we are.Everybody in this world has detectable level of toxins in the body. Study has shown that every organism on the planet has detectable level of Teflon in the body. 287 chemicals were detected in umbilical cord blood of newborns. They include pesticides, consumer product ingredients, waste materials from burning coal, gasoline, or garbage. o 180 of the 287 chemicals found are known to cause cancer in human or animals. o 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system. o 208 of those are shown to cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests. Our babies are born with toxic substances in their bodies, even before being exposed to the toxins.
    7. 7. Sources of Environmental ToxinsCDC’s Fourth’s National Report on Human Exposure to Environment Chemicalsshowed that of the 212 chemicals tested, ALL are found in blood and urine of mostAmericans!Six chemicals in particular, are found in virtually every person, and they wereidentified by the CDC as probable health hazards! Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PDEs) Bisphenol A (BPA) Perfluoro octanoic acid (PFOA) Acrylamide Mercury Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE)
    8. 8. Sources of Environmental ToxinsPolybrominated diphenyl ethers (PDEs)Used as flame retardant in all building construction. It is found in EVERY building. Builds up in human fat tissue, causing damage to the nervous system, liver, and kidney. Studies also implicated PDEs in causing sexual dysfunction, thyroid problems, and brain disorder.Bisphenol A (BPA)Found in plastic products, can linings. Until recently, it was considered safe. Primary human exposure through food packaging plastics More than 90% of people tested by CDC were found to have BPA in their bodies Because BPA is a reproduction, developmental and systemic toxicant in animal studies and is weakly estrogenic, there are questions about its potential impact particularly on children’s health and the environment. Even a small amount has been found to have impact on our reproductive system.
    9. 9. Sources of Environmental ToxinsPerfluoro octanoic acid (PFOA)Better known as Teflon, used in many applications. Used in non-stick cookware, stain-resistant clothing, certain food packaging and other heat-resistant products Studies verify that PFOA contributes to infertility and other reproductive problems Liver and immune system dysfunction are associated with the use of PFOAs.AcrylamideChemical carcinogen formed when carbohydrates are cooked at high temperatures.Perpetual exposure is linked to cancer and neurological dysfunction. Charred food, french fries, fried chicken, coffee Plastics, cosmetics, and water treatment products
    10. 10. Sources of Environmental ToxinsMercuryMost common exposure route is seafood May cause permanent brain damage Associated with many neurological problemsMethyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) Gasoline additive Not currently used in the US, but detected in most Americans’ bodies. Found in our water supply Additional exposure from second hand cigarette smoke Causes neurological and reproductive problems
    11. 11. Symptoms of ToxicityWe are all different genetically, so we react to toxins differently and atdifferent dosage. Toxic exposure can manifest itself very differently indifferent people.Common symptoms of excessive toxic burden can include: Fatigue Depression Headaches Cognitive problems: brain fog, memory problems Neurological issues: balance problems, tremors
    12. 12. Symptoms of ToxicitySome conditions and diseases are associated with excessive toxic burden.Toxins probably do not cause these conditions, but they affect theexpression and symptoms of these diseases. Allergy and asthma Diabetes Obesity Chemical sensitivity (any adverse physical, mental, or emotional reaction to the presence of a chemical smell) Fibromyalgia Fertility problems and birth defects Parkinson’s Disease Bone marrow cancers – lymphomas, leukemia, multiple myeloma Auto-immune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto’s, thyroiditis, etc.
    13. 13. Symptoms of ToxicitySome studies have shown relationship between toxins and certaindiseases:Dioxin In a study done in 2006, and published in the Environmental Health Perspectives, it showed the link between exposure to dioxins – which is a common toxin – and type II diabetes. There is a direct correlation – the higher the exposure level, the higher the chances of having diabetes. Dioxin is found to promote type 2 diabetes in humans. Dioxins are present in farm-raised fish, dairy products, and beef.
    14. 14. Symptoms of ToxicityBPA In a study published in 2008, a strong relationship is found between urine concentrations of BPA and the incidence of CVD, type 2 diabetes, and liver-enzyme abnormalities in a representative sample of the adult US population. BPA is found in a lot of packaging plastics for food
    15. 15. Symptoms of ToxicityHeavy metalOn the EPA website, it is stated that patients are routinely exposed to heavy metaltoxins through food, ground water, industrial waste, and exposure to industrialenvironment. Lead have been found in water, and mercury in fish.It is hypothesized that toxin exposure is linked to the following increase in diseaserates: Autism – 10x increase from early 80’s to 1996 Male birth defects – 2x increase from 1970 to 1993 Childhood asthma – 2x increase from 1982 to 1993 Acute lymphocytic leukemia – 62% increase in children from 1973 – 1999 Childhood brain cancer – 40% increase from 1973 – 1994 Preterm birth – 23% increase from mid 80s to 2002 Infertility – 5 to 10% of all couples studied Birth defects – 3 to 5% of all babies Sperm count – 1% decrease yearly from 1934 to 1996
    16. 16. So What Can We Do? Reduce your exposure to environmental toxins Use foods and herbs to support body’s natural detoxification process Detox regularly to reduce toxin storage
    17. 17. Reduce ExposureFood and Drink 90% of our toxin exposure to certain chemicals such as PCBs and dioxins come from the food we eat 35% of all the foods we purchase in the US supermarkets have measurable pesticide residues which make their way into our body. Pesticides are designed to kill pests, and they are poison. To reduce your exposure via pesticides and herbicides on your food, avoid eating fruits and vegetables grown conventionally on the Dirty Dozen List. Choose organic substitutes for these foods.
    18. 18. Reduce ExposureDirty Dozen – they have higher concentration of pesticides, herbicidesand toxins because of the way they are grown and harvested. Celery Peaches Strawberries Apples Blueberries Nectarines Bell Peppers Spinach Cherries Kale, collard, and other greens Potatoes Grapes (imported)
    19. 19. Reduce ExposureThe Clean 15 – because the way they are grown and how they metabolizetoxins, they generally don’t concentrate too much pesticides, herbicides and toxins.It is ok to eat conventionally grown. Onions Avocado Sweet corn Pineapple Mangos Sweet peas Asparagus Kiwi Cabbage Eggplant Cantaloupe Watermelon Grapefruit Sweet potato Honeydew and other melons
    20. 20. Reduce ExposureAnimal foods – avoid conventionally raised. Conventionally raised meat and dairy products have consistently been tested and found to have the highest levels of ―hormone disrupting‖ chemicals in them An estimated 25 million pounds of antibiotics are fed to livestock a year. The animal feed is also highly sprayed with chemicals as well Animal feed contains high quantities of fat which allow for the storage of fat- soluble chemicals and toxins get into the meat The chemicals are then passed on into the human digestive system and body when you eat the products
    21. 21. Reduce ExposureConclusion: to reduce toxin exposure from food and drink: Choose free range, hormone and antibiotic-free dairy, meat, and eggs whenever possible Choose fresh, cold-water fish that is wild-caught instead of farm-raised fish Take care to identify fish that potentially contain a high level of mercury When possible eat organic produce that are listed on the Dirty Dozen list Always wash all produce very well before eating, peeling or cooking
    22. 22. Reduce ExposureOther exposure routesPhalates, another toxin, is found in a large majority of plastic packagingand can leach into the foods that you eat. Use stainless steel or glass drinking container, reduce or eliminate all plastic utensils, plates and storage containers Store food in non-plastic containers and bag when possible Never microwave in plastic containers
    23. 23. Use Cleansing Foods and HerbsFoods that support the body’s natural cleansing process: Raw foods Leafy greens Lemon juice in warm water first thing in the morning Carrot and apple to support elimination through colon Beet juice to support lymphatic detoxHerbs that support the body’s natural detox process: Milk thistle to support liver Dandelion to support kidney
    24. 24. Detox Regularly, and SafelyDetoxification is a process during which you normalize the body’s naturalability to process and excrete toxins that are stored in our fat, while youtemporarily reduce the amount of incoming toxins.Detox done without proper supervision can backfire: Severe detox symptoms including headache, lethargy, and skin issues If the body cannot process the large amount of toxins that are suddenly released into the bloodstream, the toxins will get re-absorb into the fat tissueIf you are looking to start a weight loss program, it’s best to go through a superviseddetox program so fewer problems will arise when toxins are released as fat cells areburned off.
    25. 25. Detox Regularly, and SafelyA safe detox protocol should:• Have a gradual approach that can minimize withdrawal, sudden toxin release, and increase success rate• Have enough calorie intake to support the body’s detoxification and elimination process• Address issues of addiction prior to start of the program
    26. 26. Sweet Sugar Blues ClassSugar is everywhere. It has not only short-term but also long-termimpact on our health and wellbeing.
