“The Human Detoxification System” – a presentation by Christopher Shade, PhD on May 21, 2015.
Detoxification is a natural process inherent to the human body. Our bodies, over time, accumulate a variety of toxins from our environment, food sources and toxic emotions and become less effective at this process. Efficient detoxification depends on a series of seamless reactions that bind toxins to shuttle molecules and “escort” them out through a series of doors. The glutathione system is the most important of the detoxification systems and includes glutathione and the enzymes that work with it. The process of detoxification proceeds in three parts or “phases”, Phase I, II, and III. Dysfunction of the human detoxification system is the most common and insidious root cause of toxic element and compound accumulation in the body. True health requires that all phases are functioning and balanced or the whole system can not work properly.
