In this episode, we speak with Dr. Joe Pizzorno, who is, in short, a founding father of the movement of natural medicine. We’ll be discussing environmental toxins.
There are a few, very interesting hypotheses Dr. Pizzorno puts forth. Environmental toxins have not really abated the way that there has been an improvement in sugar and calorie consumption, and this could be what's ultimately driving increases in a litany of diseases. In this one example, obesity and diabetes, which, according to his comments, are still going up, and what might be happening is these toxins are actually deranging the function of insulin receptors. So, a pretty interesting couple hypotheses, and some data to support it, that he puts forth.
He also gives a few simple ways of screening for toxins and opens the door into a simple method for detox therapy and also references two books that he’s written to give more advice here on the topic, one for a lay audience, and one for clinicians. So, really, a very interesting conversation today with Dr. Pizzorno. https://drruscio.com/?p=56270
