The First Lady of Nutrition welcomes Dr. Joseph Pizzorno, ND, the founding president of Bastyr University. Dr. Pizzorno founded Bastyr University in 1978 and he coined the term “science-based natural medicine” and led Bastyr to become the first ever accredited institution in this field. In this episode, Ann Louise and Dr. Pizzorno engage in a conversation that delves into the heart of detoxification, where Dr. Pizzorno shares his insights on what he considers the most crucial foods and supplements for detoxification. They also discuss the mysteries of iron-dependent enzymes and how they hold the key to unleashing your body’s detox potential – including the pivotal role of milk thistle in boosting glutathione production, an essential component of your body’s natural detox system. In addition, they touch on the importance of chelation therapy, kidney support, and gall bladder health. You would be surprised to note that Dr. Pizzorno believes that arsenic is the most prevalent toxin in our current environment. But the good news is that he offers expert guidance on the complex world of toxins, detoxification, and strategies for optimizing your health.
