Everything we taste or touch or smell is chemical, in pure or combined form, because it is material. Even genetics, the core of what Dr Maria Zangara specializes in at the Center Of Excellence, is all about chemistry. Your genes are the working unit of your DNA, and your DNA is a chemical database with instructions on how to build and repair the matter that makes up ….. YOU!
What fosters health is to distinguish helpful from unhelpful chemicals, to enhance those which are good for us, and diminish those called toxins. Toxins are chemicals which cause damage to living organisms, often even in small amounts. These build up and create what is called a “body burden.” This toxic burden can lead to disease and dysfunction as carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, neurotoxins and instigators of birth defects or abnormal fetal development. Our livers, critical to life, are often the central organ harmed by toxins.
