Is Your Body Toxic? Read Below to Find Out!

Happy New Year 2015! For those of you that are unaware, January is National Detox Month. As such, Performance Chiropractic will be posting tips throughout the month on this valuable topic. First tip? DO IT!

Humans store fat-soluble toxins from chemical exposures in their detox12fat tissue. Considering that a larger percentage of Americans are overweight or obese and have excess fat tissue, we have become a VERY TOXIC society!

The effects of having a high “toxic load” are numerous, including rapid weight gain and difficulty losing weight, cardiovascular issues, liver and kidney issues, damage to other organs, headaches and migraines, irritability, difficulty concentrating, and general feelings of malaise….just to name a few

So, how do you know if you are toxic or not?  Take the following questionnaire and find out.


Answer the following questions as accurately as possible:

Do you have a family history of sensitivity to chemicals, smoke, or specific foods?

Are you taking multiple medications (Over-the-counter or detox5Prescription)?

Do you have a personal history of sensitivity to chemicals, perfumes or fragrances, smoke or foods?

Do you have a family or personal history of autoimmune diseases (i.e. SLT,RA, MS, thyroidits)?

Do you have a significant number of dental fillings?

Have you had synthetic materials put in your body (i.e. implants, detox1234prosthetics)?

Do you suffer from allergies or food sensitivities?

Do you suffer from low energy or excessive fatigue?

Do you have poor concentration or excessive forgetfulness?

Do you tend to get “every bug that comes along”?

Are you overweight even though you watch your diet?

Do you suffer from low energy or excessive fatigue?

Do you have routine exposure to air pollution?

Do you routinely consume fast or packaged processed foods?

Do you consume fish on a regular basis?

Do you regularly eat non-organic fruits and vegetables?

Do you consume conventional animal products vs. grass-fed, for example?

Is your body composition  >30% body fat?

Is your Body Mass Index  >27?

Is your 25-Hydroxyvitamin D3 <30 ng/ml?

If you answered YES to any of the above and/or if your biomarkers detox123listed at the bottom of the list are as indicated, chances are you probably should consider a detox program now!
