Obesity and Toxicity

In my last blog I talked about the relationship between obesity and environmental toxicity. Researchers from around the world are doing research on this issue. My research indicates that toxins block the ability of your body to breakdown carbohydrates for energy within the citric acid cycle.

So how do we find out what toxin is doing the damage. The only real effective way is through the use of appropriate laboratory testing.

One test I am really thrilled with is the Environmental Pollutants Panel from US Biotek of Seattle, Washington. It measures the urinary output of solvents such as benzene, toluene, xylene, styrene, phthalates and parabens. Measuring blood levels of these chemicals is almost worthless as we all carry them in our blood per studies done by the US government. What is important is to see whether you are excreting them efficiently or you are being overly exposed. Within their tests there is an interpretive report that can guide a health care practitioner to develop a detoxification protocol that is safe and effective.

The second test is a bit more controversial, not because it is a questionable test but because there are some really bad labs out there doing shoddy work. The test is hair analysis and it is a very effective tool for determining heavy metal exposure. The one lab I have a lot of faith in is Doctor's Data out of Chicago, Illinois. They have been doing this type of testing since 1972 and they are the industry leaders in the field of heavy metal testing.

Assessing, then dealing with any toxic load, along with a solid diet that reduces caloric intake and increases physical activity is the only way, in my opinion and in a growing body of scientists, to effectively lose weight permanently and feel better.

In my next blog, I will give you ten different tip on how to burn calories simply and easily.
