It turns out, the toxins in our environment are a leading cause of neurological illnesses like Parkinson’s disease.
And the evidence that these toxins have deep and devastating effects – on a cellular level – continues to stack up.
Researchers have found that these toxins literally alter the metabolic pathways associated with the development and progression of these diseases.
These incredible findings should’ve been splashed across the front page of every single newspaper and website in the world. But we all know that will never be the case.
The sad reality is that we live in a toxic world. Poisons surround us. Day in and day out, we’re being bombarded by neurotoxins.
In fact, our brains are being marinated in them daily – and this constant, low-level exposure over time is slowly killing us. And to make matters even worse, we’re not going to be able to stop this onslaught anytime in the foreseeable future.
While our bodies do their best to fight back that assault, the toxic debris starts building up wherever it can – like in your brain.
I liken it to taking a full rubbish bin and continuing to stuff more garbage into it until it’s overflowing,
In this case, though, the “trash” is toxins – and the can is your brain.
Your brain has a natural method of protecting itself against the onslaught of mercury, aluminum, copper, and other toxins: It enlists the help of the amino acid glutathione.
Glutathione – often referred to as the “master antioxidant” – is a powerful detoxifier and immune-system enhancer. In fact, it serves as the main protective antioxidant for the entire body.
Glutathione is produced and regenerated in a powerful process called methylation, which is responsible for immune system function, brain chemical (neurotransmitter) production, and organ protection, as well as detoxification.
But an alarmingly high percentage of patients have slight genetic blips in their DNA that hinders their ability to make the amount of glutathione they need to effectively tackle those toxins.
To learn more about this process and how to tackle the under-production of this master antioxidant, see the August issue of my Nutrition & Healing newsletter.
