I have for the past several days been listening to & learning from an incredible array of health experts participating in the Detox Summit hosted by Deanna Minich, PhD, in collaboration with the Institute for Functional Medicine.
As described on the Detox Summit website,“’Detox’ is a term that means many things to people, from drug and alcohol detoxification to nutritional detoxification, or cleanses using food, smoothies and juices. The Detox Summit brings 30 experts together to discuss all aspects of detoxification to help you return to a healthy state of wellness.”
Topics covered include the potential role of environmental toxins in the body and chronic conditions like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity, as well as how to recognize toxins and eliminate them. Speakers on the first day (August 4) included Jeff Bland, PhD, visionary scientist and author of the recently published “The Disease Delusion.” One of today’s presenters (JJ Virgin) provided some very valuable insights into the connection between sweeteners, food intolerance, and obesity, along with some very sound advice on behavior change issues.
The Summit is online NOW (August 4-11, 2014) and it’s FREE. You can still register HERE and those registered can purchase online access to all 30 presentations (so you can listen to the ones you may have already missed) for only $67 HERE. I just ordered mine and wanted you all to know of this valuable resource while it is still available.
