Detoxification and its Role in Women’s Health
The highly debatable term “detox” is one that often makes health professionals cringe as it has become one of the most popular and ubiquitous terms used to market fad diets in recent years. However, beyond the hype there is a complex physiology to our body’s detoxification system that should be supported through diet and lifestyle to help prevent a huge array of health conditions.
For women, detoxification plays a critical role in reproductive health and is often a contributing factor in infertility, estrogen-dominant cancers, endometriosis, menstrual cycle issues and more.
Toxic burden from diet and environmental stressors, individual genetics, a compromised digestive system and nutrient deficiencies can all influence the type and amount of support an individual may need.
In this 90-minute webinar led by Ayla Barmmer, MS, RD, LDN, you’ll explore detoxification with a special emphasis on how it relates to women’s health. Learn the ways in which our body handles toxins, factors that contribute to toxic burden, and how to support our body’s natural detoxification system through diet and lifestyle.
Like all of the Women’s Health Nutrition Academy courses, you’ll find practical strategies to use with your clients in practice right away!
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- How the body’s detoxification systems functions
- Which genetic, diet and lifestyle factors put women at risk for poor detoxification
- The ways in which detoxification impacts reproductive health
- How to choose evidenced-based detoxification support methods
