Reducing Toxic Exposure
The modern world we live in exposes us to toxins from our food, water, and air. We inhale them through our nose, absorb them through our skin, and ingest them in the foods we eat. People with IBD, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis often have a challenging ability to handle all these toxins, resulting from a genetic predisposition to be less efficient at detoxification, nutrient deficiencies, an overburdened system, or excessive exposure to toxins. All of these compromise the body’s natural detoxification pathways. In general, people who develop autoimmune diseases are more sensitive to toxins in our environment.
Here is a list of products that can help relieve the toxic burden you may be exposed to in your household, at work, or when you travel.
AquaTru – Fluoride has been shown to have a negative impact on gut health. Some studies have indicate fluoride exposure with higher incidences of IBD. This is why I recommend Reverse Osmosis Filters, one of the few filter types that remove fluoride from our water supply. My favorite water filter is the new counter-top AquaTru Reverse Osmosis Filter. It’s a compact and efficient machine that creates great tasting reverse osmosis water. This purifier removes or substantially reduces virtually all the toxic chemicals in your tap water. No plumbing or installation required.

Clearlight Sauna – Sweating is an excellent way to release toxins. A sauna accelerates sweating and best of all, you don’t have to go anywhere or depend on anyone else.

My favorite sauna is Clearlight because they have full spectrum heaters, ultra low EMF, a bluetooth sound system, chromotherapy lighting, a lifetime warranty and was designed, not just endorsed, by a Doctor. They also offer free shipping to the mainland USA and Canada.
Molekule Air Purifier – Air purifiers removes pollutants from the air you breathe everyday. High air emissions of pollutants has been linked to a 40 percent increase in the rate of IBD hospitalizations. Toxin pollutants in the air could come from nearby vehicle exhaust, off-gassing from mattresses, furniture, pollen, dust, pet dander, mold spores, and smoke. Molekule uses nanotechnology, which outperforms HEPA filters in every category of pollutant from well-known allergens like dust, pollen, and pet dander to microscopic pollutants like mold, viruses, bacteria, and gaseous chemicals.
