Just How Much Toxins are We Exposed To?

The First Thing to Do to Address Our Toxin Load


Dr. Wendie Trubow Notable Quotes

“We are definitely starting at the gut even if people don’t have symptoms because if the gut’s dysfunctional, it doesn’t matter how much we bind this mercury. If your gut’s dysfunctional and recycling [the mercury], it doesn’t matter how effective the detox is if it doesn’t leave you.”

                                                – Dr. Wendie Trubow


Episode Summary

It’s no secret that the world we live in today is full of toxins: from the pesticides that get into our food, to the products we use on our bodies, to the very water we drink and the air we breathe. Sadly, it’s not talked about enough, especially how heavily they impact our health: from causing hormonal imbalances, leaky guts, and even cancer. While we can’t control how much toxins there are in the environment, we can limit our exposure to them.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fay, we’re talking to author, entrepreneur, and functional health specialist Wendie Trubow to walk us through how we can take back the narrative and take back ownership of our health by minimizing and getting rid of the toxins in our bodies so we could live life to the fullest.
