❓So what exactly are toxins?
❓What adds to the toxin bucket list?
💡Remember, it’s the accumulation of many toxins that cause disease and illness. Our genetics will affect what toxins turn on illness but lowering overall exposure in the environment, is ideal.
🦄This is why bioindividuality matters and personalized care matters.
⚠️Many of the internal toxins start from a bad environment.
🚨Buy toxicity occurs within the body when the amount of stressors, at any one time, are too much for our body to handle.
🪣Our bodies can only handle so much at once and that is what the bucket depicted: the concept of the “Total Load.”
⚠️“Total Load” is essentially the number of stressors the body can handle at any one time safely.
🥀When this threshold is passed and there are more stressors than the body can handle, the body becomes overloaded. (becomes toxic, sick, unwell).
🐪That’s why people usually get sick from one defining moment. It was the final straw.
🧳Imagine cramming more clothing in your suitcase when it is already too full to zip. You might have room for one shirt but eventually the suitcase will break.
⚖️Some of us show the toxic load quickly. But for some of us, it can take years of accumulated toxins and stress before symptoms are noticeable.
🍃That’s why some do well on plant-based diets initially. I did it for 12 years before I ended up in a hospital.
🔅Some of the first signs of toxicity and a weakened body is getting sick much more than usual, sleeping poorly and having unstable moods.
💡It’s impossible to remove every single toxin.
🛡But figure out what toxins you will fight to remove from your toxic load.
💡And don’t overwhelm yourself with perfection. It doesn’t exist.
🪣Perfection/fearing everything is also a stress to the body.
⛑For me, I chose to remove most plant-based foods, processed foods, not-so-ideal relationships, and turning off the news.
