Pre-conference Intensive: Mitigating the Effects of Glyphosate and other Environmental Toxins for the Prevention of Chronic Disease and Health Optimization – the Application of Hormesis and Herbal Medicine
Donald Yance, RH (AHG)
Protecting our health in the face of widespread use of environmental chemicals is becoming one of the most pressing challenges of our times, and the herbicide glyphosate is one of the leading environmental toxins in our world today.
We discuss the chemical makeup of glyphosate, how it can damage our health, what the relationship is of the glyphosate in our food supply to health conditions (including gluten intolerance/sensitivity, antibiotic resistance and disruption of endocrine balance). Research has shown that endocrine disruption can lead to a whole host of health problems including obesity, cancer, infertility and depression.
We discuss in detail the concept of hormesis, and how low-level exposure to stressors, including toxic substances, can make us healthier and stronger. We explore the ways to mitigate, detoxify and protect our health using herbal and nutritional medicine, and how these medicines can work in concert with hormesis to expand the dynamic range of health stability, building the four life requirements of energy, protection, adaptation and reproduction.
