Detoxify for Better Health – Doctor Michael Murray Interview

Detoxification has become a necessity of modern life.

Our environment is full of toxic chemical compounds. If we could see the harmful chemicals we would probably freak out. It can be mind-numbing to consider the scope of the problem. Most of us are powerless to change our circumstances so that we could somehow escape exposure. The baby boomers are the first generation to grow up during the chemicalization of America. It has only gotten worse, much worse. The children being born today already have over 100 chemicals in their systems at birth. Exposure just continues to grow from there.

The good news is that there is a lot you can do to reduce your exposure to the many chemicals in our lives. We can also support our natural detox systems in the body. So the big idea is to live cleaner as best you can, improve nutrition to support health, and help your body detox by regular and periodic cleansing.

Dr. Murray will discuss the Purify products from Enzymedica. When you are looking for cleansing products make sure your understand the distinctions between products and how they work. Like everything else in the supplement world, not all cleansing products are the same. So choose wisely. It is also critical to remember that the body has several ways to eliminate toxins and waste. Your liver is the primary organ for detoxify chemicals. Your kidneys filter our toxins. You release toxins through your breath, skin, kidneys and bowels. All of these avenues of elimination are important and you can support their functions independently.

About Doctor Michael Murray:

For the past thirty-five years, Dr. Murray has been compiling a massive database of original scientific studies from the medical literature. He has personally collected over 65,000 articles from the scientific literature, which provide strong evidence on the effectiveness of diet, vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other natural measures in the maintenance of health and the treatment of disease. It is from this constantly expanding database that Dr. Murray provides the answers on health and healing.

“One of the great myths about natural medicines is that they are not scientific. The fact of the matter is that for most common illnesses there is greater support in the medical literature for a natural approach than there is for drugs or surgery.” – Dr. Michael Murray
