In our daily lives we are exposed to thousands of chemicals which did not even exist a few decades ago. In my clinical practice I have come to the understanding that this overload of man-made toxins is a fundamental factor which must be addressed in every health issue I see in every client. If you are looking to improve your health, it is absolutely fundamental to stem the flow of incoming toxins.
“Toxicity is the primary driver of disease”
– Joseph Pizzorno (ND and leading authority on science based natural medicine)
I have spent many years educating clients during their consultation process about how to avoid this chemical overload. Reducing exposure to toxins is such an important part of recovery from any chronic health complaint. Take for example digestion… the pesticides and herbicides which are so liberally sprayed on crops directly and indiscriminately destroy out gut flora. So IBS develops. Or hormones… the endocrine disrupting chemicals added to our skin creams to make them smell nice are very similar in chemical structure to the hormone oestrogen. So oestrogen excess becomes an issue, contributing to all the symptoms of PMS or endometriosis or an array of other named conditions that are actually rooted in toxicity in the body. Or the fluoride in drinking water can interfere with thyroid function. So many chemicals in cleaning products, sun cream, nail varnish… all linked to cancers. The list goes on!
The wonderful thing however is that this is easily addressed! All it takes is a little knowledge and guidance. Hence I have created my Low Tox Living Workshops. The culmination of years of my own personal and professional research.
In these workshops my aim is to give an overview of the main actionable sources of exposure from toxins in our daily lives. To alert you to key areas of your life that you can quite easily change for the better.
Here is what previous participants have to say…
“I was impressed by the amount of research and work you put into the workshop and the leaflet that you produced. I will find it very helpful to have this to refer to. Overall, I enjoyed the workshop and got a lot from it to carry into my life.
You did arm me with an overview of the main sources of toxins in my daily life and with the changes I could make in my daily life. I found the changes aspect particularly helpful.” – CH, Stratford
“I really enjoyed the workshop and the morning flew by for me, I really couldn’t believe it that we have run over the time.
I found all the information really useful – admittedly not everything was retained but it was a good, in depth overview and the workbook is perfect to have on hand to refer back to and/or concentrate on one area at a time.
There were things I was already aware of / knew a bit about or was already doing so not everything was brand new for me but there was still more than enough new and revealing information.
I find it difficult (and confusing) to remember all the different chemical names/ingredients that should be avoided and it can be a faff or frustrating trying to look it up/google it every time – the work book really helps as an easy reference point.
The above is especially true for me for the Skincare/Bodycare/Cosmetics section – an area I always find really confusing. It’s a mine field but I feel more confident about it now after going through it at the workshop and with the resources you gave us.
Finally, the make and take sessions were a great idea too – I do make cleaning products still but only two recipes so will be trying a few more things now. It was also a good way to break up the morning.
The morning was well worth the money! Thank you for all the time you have invested in to researching and putting all the information together so we can have the information at our fingertips. I will definitely mention about your workshops to friends who may have an interest in learning more in this area.” – MJ, Leamington Spa
