Toxins are natural poisons produced in your body that interpret the metabolic processes of your body. Some toxins include proteins, peptides, or molecules that interact with the cell receptors and enzymes in your body and alter them.
What types of toxins can be found in your body?
Many toxins that are in your body may be from your environment. The most common toxic chemicals are:
Your toothbrush is found to have excess levels of fluoride, which is found to affect tooth enamel and can lead to possible cancers.
Bisphenol-A (BPA) and Bisphenol-S (BPS)
There are toxins found in hard plastic that disrupt the endocrine system, which can lead to complications around weight, reproduction, and infertility.
Hidden toxins can be seen within pharmaceuticals, toothpaste, shampoos, and many other everyday products. Parabens absorb into the skin and disrupt the endocrine.
Toxins can be found in everyday cosmetics as well as in paint on walls. Lead is a neurotoxin that leads to brain and behavioral damage.
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs)
Many furniture, carpets, and building materials are found to have PBDEs. A build of PBDEs can lead to tumor formation, thyroid issues, and even neurological damage.
What tests help find toxin levels in your body?
The best test used to measure toxin levels in your body is a complete blood count (CBC). With a CBC, you can see your levels of red blood cells, white blood cells, blood platelets, and more.
Another test used to test for toxins can be an E-Map. E-maps test the subtle energy in the body to find the presence of toxins.
