Why Test Your Toxicity For Diabetes + Thyroid
Toxins - what and where are they?
We are constantly bombarded with toxins every single day.
Governments and organizations around the world may be fighting hard to put rules and regulations in place to protect human health and the environment from potentially dangerous or toxic substances.
Realistically speaking however, it’s impossible to eliminate them completely in a modern society.
First things first though.
Before diving deeper into the topic of today’s blog post “Why Test Your Toxicity For Diabetes + Thyroid”, I thought we’d take a closer look at what toxins are and where they can be found.
Within the field of medicine and biology, a toxin is defined as a substance that is synthesized by a plant species, an animal, or by micro-organisms, that is harmful to another organism.
A toxic substance can also be described as a material that can be poisonous or cause health effects, such as chemicals.
A non exhaustive list of some of the most common toxins that people are exposed to includes:
- Arsenic (found in rice, seafood and cereal)
- Led (consumed through water supply)
- Mercury (exposure through cavities or dental interventions such as fillings)
- Environmental toxins (pesticides, herbicides, parabens in skincare, beauty and toiletry products etc.)
In addition to these, mold is a massive toxin.
Did you know for example that 70-80 % of all homes across the US are said to suffer from mold exposure? Many times, this hidden intruder causes severe damage to life and health while its victims remain unaware of the real culprit of their chronic condition.
As the word itself implies semantically, toxins are inherently defined as something destructive and bad for us that we need to get rid of.
So far so good.
Now to the next question - where they can be found.
The simple answer is everywhere!
Toxins are found in everything from toys, tools, cosmetics, furniture, food and medicine.
This isn’t necessarily due to manufacturers being evil and wanting to intentionally harm us. The production and subsequent use of certain toxic chemicals occasionally provides overarching benefits to society as a whole.
With the above said in mind, what matters isn’t necessarily the fact that toxins are prevalent, but rather…
…our ability as humans to eliminate them and detoxify ourselves.
The importance of elimination and detoxification
We’ve already established that toxins surround us and that there is very little we can do as members of society to change that.
I may be painting a bleak picture for you here, but bare with me please…
What’s key in this regard is improving our bodies' hosting abilities in order to stop toxins from entering our bodies, lingering there, worsening bodily functions and processes and ultimately causing chaos.
The main and severe issue with toxicity arises when those toxins are met with a poor functioning host, i.e. us.
The more toxins build up, the more they start creating destruction and havoc by breaking down organs and tissues.
Therefore, we must work actively in testing and detecting toxicity, and in improving the elimination and detoxification pathways in the body so as to support its inherent ability to function and heal in the best way possible.
Why Testing for Toxicity is Important for Diabetic and Thyroid Patients
As a Diabetic or Thyroid patient, your body is already compromised. This makes it even more important to provide it with the best conditions to support it back to health.
When toxins enter the body of someone who suffers from Diabetes, they start building up with time and eventually break down vital elimination and detoxification pathways.
Where do all the toxins go when one fails to eliminate them properly?
Well, the answer to that is simple - right back into your body.
Toxins can start blocking your insulin receptors and impair your ability to get insulin into those receptors.
This may in turn lead to sugars staying in your bloodstream provoking classic Diabetic Symptoms such as fatigue and other debilitating symptoms.
The same MO applies for a Thyroid Patient where an underlying toxicity in the body can block the Thyroid’s ability to produce thyroid hormone, or by blocking Thyroid Replacement Hormones.
But what if toxicity wasn’t an issue at play?
- Could your Thyroid perhaps start producing hormones on its own?
- Could Thyroid Hormones actually become entirely obsolete as a part of your medical regimen?
The answers to the above questions are likely to be responded affirmatively if the correct measures are taken!
What my team and I regularly recommend to our Diabetic and Thyroid Patients is undergoing a simple, yet efficient and comprehensive Test for Toxicity.
This is carried out through an easy urine test which enables us to assess and evaluate your Toxicity Levels.
Your Body Knows Best!
You may have a nudging feeling from within that there is something amiss with regard to how you’re being met, diagnosed or treated by practitioners within the Conventional Medical Field.
If you suffer from, or suspect that you might be suffering from, a Diabetic or Thyroid Condition, listening to the voice within is absolutely crucial.
Functional Medicine isn’t about routine tests and treatments or offering one-size-fits-all solutions to those struggling with Chronic Conditions.
It’s all about assessing your body adequately and paying attention to its inherent ability to heal itself through supporting methods and principles found within Functional Medicine.
Once informed, it’s time to take action!
