Pick Your Battles: Minimize Toxin Exposure

Which Detox Ways Actually Work?


Dr. Wendie Trubow Notable Quotes

“You have to peel off, food is foundational, you have to make sure that’s optimized and that you’re eating and sleeping and pooping moving your body and not being a stress ball and having good relationships—those are the foundation of health. And if you do that, and you’re not a million bucks, you’ve got toxins.”

                                                – Dr. Wendie Trubow

“Let’s back up a thousand steps. One: pick your battles. Two: don’t make your battles make you crazy because living on this earth, you’re going to be exposed to toxins, so do your best to minimize your exposure, and when you do get exposed, don’t go nuts.”
Dr. Wendie Trubow


Episode Summary

The world that we’re living in is packed full of toxins, and no matter what we do, we’ll be exposed to those toxins one way or another. What many of us don’t realize is that all these toxins building up in our bodies don’t only make us gain weight, but they also impact our health in ways that we affect the whole way our bodies function.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to author and functional medicine gynecologist Dr. Wendie Trubow to walk us through how we can start being mindful about the toxins around us and how we can minimize our exposure and take back ownership of our health.
