In this episode of the podcast we're joined by Beth Bundy to cover the importance of the liver in detoxification and how the integrative medicine practitioner approaches assessing liver function.
Without detoxification processes, the body would rapidly fall victim to the plethora of exogenous and endogenous toxins that constantly threaten our health.
Once viewed as no more than a waste product from cheese manufacturing, extensive research has revealed numerous potential health benefits of humble whey, including cancer prevention and tumour inhibition.
N-acetyl-cysteine, commonly abbreviated to NAC, is a precursor of the amino acid L-cysteine and the antioxidant glutathione (GSH).
Reduced glutathione (GSH) is well recognised for its role as a key antioxidant in the body and for its function as an endogenous detoxifier, helping remove toxins and potential carcinogens and it is rapidly depleted by inflammatory conditions.
Dr Joseph Pizzorno is one of the world's leading authorities on natural and integrative medicine. He was a key note speaker at the recent BioCeuticals Research Symposium in April 2015 and spoke extensively on the critical topic of toxicity. When Dr Pizzorno began his research into toxic exposure and human toxic load he could not have imagined the extent of the problem. In this interview conducted at BioCeuticals Resarch Symposium, Dr Pizzorno discusses the current human toxic load, the damage it can cause, symptoms of exposure and the range of treatments available.
