Presented by Dr. Chris D. Meletis, ND

With the advent of every New Year, many patients become resolute to shed unwanted pounds. As practitioners, we have pledged to do no harm in pursuit of helping patients achieve their wellness goals, so how do we safeguard them from themselves, at very least from the toxins sequestered in their adipose tissue? Is their body prepared for an extra daily dose of stored chemicals including organic pollutants, hormones, and toxins? Can losing weight put them at risk if they have high levels of toxic burden?

In this webinar, we discuss how losing weight without properly identifying a patient’s toxic burden and individualizing their detox protocol may indeed put them at risk. When a patient says they want to lose weight, I join them with cautious optimism while educating them about organic pollutants and other toxic substances that can be stored in fat and released with weight loss.

Take Aways:

  1. How to quantify toxic burdens such as parabens, phthalates, styrene, benzene, etc.
  2. Targeting nutrient deficits that may lessen the safety and efficacy of their diet
  3. Supporting Keto, Paleo, and intermittent fasting with Organic Acid testing
  4. Discussing all 3 phases of detox, not just Phase I and II
  5. Case discussion and practical considerations to safeguard patients during weight loss
