Household Toxins: Determining Your Body Burden

By  0 Comments

Are you aware that each American is exposed to over 70,000 different toxins per day?  

If you’re not, let me inform you that we in fact are, and the true alarming issue is that we don’t have a comprehensive list of these toxins from the industries that produce them. This information and statistics were taken from the infographic, Man: The Chemical Ape, which details the exposure of humans to harmful toxins in North America. It is easy to read and provides numerous shocking factoids about our level of toxin exposure and how these substances can alter normal bodily functions. One of the most impactful factoids is that the average person in the United States has 700 toxins in their home that are negatively impacting their health.

An important term to understand when talking about toxins is body burden, which is defined as the amount of toxins that accumulate in the human body. It is nearly impossible for healthcare specialists to calculate body burden since there is not a comprehensive list to use as a resource, but through bio-communication technology we can assess exposure. 

At MaxLife Weight Loss and Body Balancing, we have developed a Household Toxin Scan that will generate a report showing the top 10 toxins in your home that could be affecting your physiology. 

Most people think of fat as an ugly thing that is bad, but the simple fact is that fat is an important part of our body. Cholesterol, a fat, is the backbone of almost every hormone in the human body, and without it we wouldn’t be able to survive. Fat is also a protectant; it protects us from toxins by depositing more fat in response to more exposure. So, the more toxins you have inside your body the more fat you need to protect you from their harmful effects.  

This month, MaxLife is offering a FREE Household Toxin Scan to anyone who schedules a 30-minute Health Coaching Session for $30. Call now to find out how we can help you re-balance your body and lose weight rapidly.
