The human body is exposed to a constant exposure to toxic elements. Some of these toxins are environmental, while others come from within us, byproducts of our body’s metabolic processes. Environmental toxins are found in the forms of chemicals, plants and foods, and drugs taken both recreationally and at the recommendation of our physicians. We are exposed to cleaners, solvents, and fumes from the nail polish that we are applying. We ingest all kinds of chemicals in our foods. But only a small percentage of these chemical compounds have been reliably tested in humans. And even fewer of these chemicals have a known positive influence our body’s required cellular processes.
For many years the paradigm surrounding weight loss has been echoed in a familiar battle cry. “Eat fewer calories, and lose weight.” The individuals who had a strong resolve, and who followed the plan, demonstrated success with their weight loss, and through their successes proved the paradigm to be correct. However within another large subset of individuals who try to lose weight, we find that in spite of a strong alliance to this concept, many are unable to shed the excess pounds.
