The Results of my own Toxic Core Detox Profile!

As a natural, integrative, and function-medicine trained nutritionist, I’ve implemented a lot of changes over the years to reduce my exposure to toxins in my home and environment.

I recently did a Detox Test on myself and must say, I was a bit surprised at the results.

I tested positive for DDE – a metabolite of DDT which was banned in 1965 but is “persistent”.  Persistent means it persists in the environment for years.

I also tested positive for parabens, phthalates, and hexachlorobenzene!

The moral of the story is we ALL need to be implementing detox strategies on a DAILY basis!  Toxins wreak havoc on our internal machinery!

Toxins:

1.  Disrupt methylation pathways which has multiple downstream effects
2.  Alter insulin signaling which has multiple downstream effects
3.  Poison mitochondria which leaves us lethargic or flat out chronically fatigued
4.  Disrupt hormones, since they act as fake estrogens

Moral of the story?  Clean up your act!  Me too!  We’re all exposed.   We inherit some of this stuff.  I’ll be drinking more lemon water to flush  my liver and eating more foods that facilitate biotransformation of toxins!

 About Tracy Konoske, MS, RDN

meet_tracyTracy Konoske is an eclectic clinician and uses a blend of natural, integrative, functional, and personalized medicine to help her patients feel their best.  Tracy understands that there are 4 drivers of chronic disease:  Toxins, Infections, Stress, and Diet.  And it's often a combination of all 4 that lead to a chronic health condition, and thus it takes a treatment plan addressing each of the 4 to resolve and reclaim good health.  Tracy has recovered from 2 "perfect storm" situations which had drastic effects on her health and led to multiple mystery illnesses and diagnosis including Lyme.

By reducing the burden of these triggers, Tracy is successfully resolving:

  • Fatigue (anemia's, adrenals, thyroid-related, chronic fatigue syndrome, ME-CFS)
  • Auto Immune Conditions (Hashimoto's, Lupus, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Celiac)
  • Mental Health Conditions (anxiety, depression, OCD, ADD/ADHD)
  • Cognitive Dysfunction (trouble concentrating, forgetfulness, symptoms of early Alzheimer's)
  • Digestive Disorders (low hydrochloric acid, "leaky gut", Candida Albicans, Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth SIBO, IBS, Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis)
  • Migraines and chronic headaches
If you've one or more of the above-mentioned conditions, or have been told you have Lyme or chronic Lyme,  there's a good chance you are in the right place.If you have a history of chronic sore throats, tonsillitis or tonsillectomy, mononucleosis, glandular fever, shingles, and/or cold sores, there's a good chance you are in the right place.

There are no coincidences.  All good things come from God.
