Alter Your Health


Apr 15, 2019

Dr. Jaffe is a wealth of knowledge and experience. While we could have talked for hours upon hours about this topic or any other, we flew through the deep conversation on environmental toxicants... (by the way, the word toxicant describes a chemical in the environment compared to toxin which describes a naturally occurring substance that has toxic effects in the body, i.e. aflatoxin from mold)

We covered A LOT in this conversation, on the topic of environmental toxicants and beyond!

Here are highlights from the conversation.. 

  • The 5 classes of environmental toxicants (+ the emerging 6th class)
    • Persisting Organic Pollutants (POPs)
    • Solvent Residues
    • Heavy Metals
    • Mold
    • Radioisotopes
    • (EMFs - check out www.bems.org for more)
  • Indoor air quality is always worse than outdoor air - get outside/use an indoor air filter!
  • Why it's important to take your shoes off indoors
  • Reduce glyphosate by joining a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)
  • Why Gardening, Dancing, Walking, and Laughing are the best health-promoting practices
  • Specific foods to enhance natural detoxification
  • What it means to really alkalinize the body and how it is important to your health
  • 8 predictive biomarkers to have your doctor order: hbA1C, hsCRP, homocysteine, LRA, urine pH, Vitamin D, Omega-3 index, 8-oxoguanine 

 

Hopefully this is not too much INFORMATION and you can also feel a little INSPIRATION to move in the direction of health!
