What Toxins Do to Our Body and How to Avoid Them


Have you tried every diet out there? Experimented with all the supplements? And still feel like crap?

The truth is, in today’s world we have to pay attention to not only the types of foods we put in our bodies but what we don’t want put in and on our bodies.

On today’s podcast we have health coach, trailblazer in educating people on toxins, and author of It Feels Good to Feel Good: Learn to Eliminate Toxins, Reverse Inflammation and Feel Great Again, Cheryl Meyer.

Cheryl discovered she was suffering from inflammation and autoimmune disease and began to actively search for the right doctor. Left with no real help from conventional doctors, she began to research herself and found Functional Medicine doctors that guided her back to wellness.

Eliminating toxins was a critical step in healing her leaky gut, which was the cause of her inflammation. She comments, “I wrote this book for people with autoimmune disease and inflammation, but really it’s for everyone. Inflammation is the root cause of many of our illnesses and disease, cancer, heart disase, strokes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, depression, Type I and Type II diabetes, possibly even autism.”

Toxins are a real issue in the modern age and they are wreaking havoc on people’s immune systems, hormones, stress levels, digestion, skin, and more.

Just when you thought you didn’t need another thing to worry about! But here’s the thing, it’s better to be aware of these toxins and educate yourself so that you can start feeling your best now.

You do not have to flip your life upside down to start cleaning up the toxins out of your life. Start with one small change and go from there.

Unfortunately, toxins are everywhere. They’re in our food, our canned goods, plastics, cooking oils, processed foods, cosmetics, cleaning supplies, our pots and pans and more.

The good news is, you can start literally anywhere to lessen your toxic load! 🙂

By removing even one toxin, you are one step closer to feeling your best!

Here are 6 tips to lessen your toxic load:

  • Eat organic as much as possible (in the book, Cheryl has tips for eating organic on a budget)
  • Remove toxic pots and pans from your kitchen and switch to cast iron or non-toxic 
  • Switch from dish-washing pods to a clean soap such as Branch Basic
  • Swap toxic detergent to Seventh Generation
  • Remove toxic house cleaners which are loaded with chemicals that we inhale and try Puracy Cleaner instead
  • Switch toxic cosmetics out for plant based products
