Choosing The Right Detox Program for You

Detoxification (detox), also know as cleansing, may conjure up images of people in sweat lodges dripping toxins from their bodies.

Pesticide Exposure—From Prenatal to Parkinson’s

  I often blog about the widespread negative effects of chemicals and pesticides. We live in a toxic soup, and the more people realize that, the more likely they will be to make changes.
