In this show you'll learn: What detoxification is What toxins are Why you want to detoxify Background and Guest Information: Detoxification is one of Dr. Ritamarie's favorite topics. People ask Dr. Ritamarie all the time about what toxins are and why they need a detoxification program, especially if they don't smoke, drink alcohol, or take drugs. Join Dr. Ritamarie and author Susan Schenck as they discuss what goes on in detoxification - the cells and the organs. Besides the liver, there are enzymes that help start the process of detoxification. If your digestion is impaired, you eat on the run, and eat food with pesticides, your body produces toxins, making it harder for your body's natural digestion capacity to detox. Susan Schenck is a licensed acupuncturist (LAc) with a master of traditional Oriental medicine (MTOM) degree from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. She also has a BS in education and MS in applied linguistics from Indiana University. Susan is also the author of The Live Food Factor: The Comprehensive Guide to the Ultimate Diet for Body, Mind, Spirit & Planet. Check out Dr. Ritamarie's VITAL Health Community for additional resources on the role that plants and herbs play on your hormones and digestive health, as well as strategies to include in your daily routines to achieve more vitality.
