Body Mind Empowerment with Siim Land

#132 Liver Detox and Autophagy with Dr Christopher Shade

August 14, 2019

You hear a lot of people talking about liver detox and juice cleanses as to remove toxins from the body. However, your body's detoxification systems are much more complex and need to be stimulated more strategically. Otherwise, you may run into some issues and "detox symptoms."

Welcome to the Body Mind Empowerment Podcast I’m your host Siim Land and our guest today is Dr Christopher Shade. Dr Shade has a PhD in environmental mercury chemistry and he’s a renown expert on mercury, heavy metals, and human detoxification systems. During his PhD work, Dr Shade patented analytical technology for mercury speciation analysis and later founded Quicksilver Scientific.
