Talking To Patients About Toxins

What simple interventions work to encourage biotransformation and reduce the side effects of chronic toxin exposure? Why is cysteine so important for detoxification? As an expert in the field of biotransformation and detoxification, IFM Board Member Joseph E. Pizzorno, ND, has collected the latest research in a patient-friendly, highly relevant book, The Toxin Solution.

In the following audio interview, IFM Director of Medical Education Dan Lukaczer, ND, interviews Dr. Pizzorno on the health effects of chronic toxin exposure, genetic influences on detoxification, and the prevalence of toxins. They discuss how to frame discussions of toxic influences with patients, focusing on avoidable toxins and unavoidable toxins.

Dr. Pizzorno’s book, The Toxin Solution, provides an evidence-based protocol for safe and effective detoxification for most patients. It also contains several patient cases that reveal the potential healthful benefits of detoxification. Learn more at thetoxinsolution.com.
