I really REALLY believe detoxing is important for almost all of us. And for some people, their bodies are able to handle all the detoxing that it requires for them to stay in optimal shape.
But there are some of us (many of us, actually!) that do not detox properly. And that is where my detox foot pads come in, along with other ways to detox.
How do you know if you don't detox properly? Well, your liver may not be functioning up to par, and your kidneys may be overworked. You may not sweat like normal people do. (For instance, I could be in a sauna for almost an hour before starting to sweat -- something is wrong with that!).
And I learned a bit about MTHFR and methylation cycles, and how there are genetic mutations that make it so your body does not do its job properly, resulting in toxic overload. So after I got my 23andme.com test results, and had a consultation with Sterling Hill, founder of www.mthfrsupport.com, I realized I had a huge issue!
One thing Sterling told me during our consultation was that I looked great for someone with as many mutations as I had. Most other people with similar mutations were bedridden. And I truly believe that finding the detox foot pads and using them (intermittently, as I don't use them all the time and sometimes will go months without using them), really saved my life and prevented me from becoming bedridden from toxic overload, autoimmune issues and chronic illness.
Yes, I am still in a lot of physical pain due to low back issues and bilateral hip bursitis due to injuries. And I have adrenal fatigue that I am working on recovering from. But overall, I still have a great career, a great side business (Purify Your Body) and can manage my household, do my church activities and teach Sunday School. Many people in my situation with similar mutations and fatigue are unable to do all that.
And I am giving my detox protocol 100% of the credit!
So... I want you all to have a chance at winning a 23andme.com genetic testing kit. And I am going to give one away to one lucky winner. Plus, there will be 2 second place winners who will each get 40 FREE detox foot pads.
If you have never heard of 23andme.com, it is a DNA testing service. They used to provide some type of analysis for you regarding your inherited health risks, however the FDA shut that part of the operation down. You still get your raw data -- all of it! And once you get that, you can follow their instructions to download it (onto your own computer). You also can search your raw data directly on their website when you log into your account.
When you see it, the raw data may not mean anything to you. But you can run it through various programs (listed below) to get an accurate idea of what is going on with your genetic mutations!
(Please read this article I wrote about MTHFR and how I went through the process, and note that even if you have genetic mutations doesn't mean they will EXPRESS).
www.mthfrsupport.com -- Sterling' App has a good application to run your data through
www.livewello.com -- DONATION BASED -- this is ok, but not the easiest to understand
www.nutrahacker.com -- FREE OPTIONS --one of my favorites. Lists the supplements you should avoid and the ones you need based on your mutations. The $37 option is the most thorough
www.knowyourgenetics.com -- FREE --you have to input by hand but Dr. Amy Yasko provides a list of supplements in a free report that is dozens of pages long and filled with all sorts of good information.
