Toxins can be endogenous, produced by the body, or exogenous, from external sources. They include:
- heavy metals like mercury and lead, petrochemicals, residues, pesticides, and fertilizers
- food and environmental allergens, molds, and toxins from molds
- the standard American diet
- mental, emotional, and spiritual toxins — depression, anger, anxiety, and stress
- internal toxins such as bacteria, fungus, and yeast inside our gut as well as hormonal and metabolic toxins
Toxins that don’t get processed and excreted are stored in fatty areas of the body including fat cells, liver, and brain cells.
