Is your toxic load causing infertility?
Most of us are well aware of what is poisonous. Certain products, if ingested, can cause serious illness or even death. Naturally we avoid these, to preserve life.But there is another form of poisoning, which is caused by accumulation, often referred to as toxic load. When it comes to toxic load there is rarely unexpected serious illness or death but there is often impaired fertility. Toxins enter the body through 3 main avenues.
- Ingestion – through food and drink, including medicines !
- Absorption – through the skin
- Inhalation – through the airways
The human liver has just 5 detox pathways and, depending on which toxin it is, it will be broken down in one or more of those pathways, using a specific combination of nutrients (more on nutrients in another blog).
I am currently working on expanding the toxic load section of my Natural Fertility Programme and wanted to share this idea with the trying to conceive community.
Here is a (non exhaustive) list of possible sources of toxins – worth both partners considering when experiencing fertility difficulties.
