Dr. Tyler Kruse on Toxic Ingredients/Clean Living

This Wednesday, Dr. Tyler of The Wellness Way – Coralville educated The Wellness Way Student club on toxic ingredients, clean living, and Osha!

Toxic Ingredients

A lot of patients don’t correlate that something in their clothes with their eczema, rashes, other skin issues, or even headaches. Really talking to them about this and giving them other alternatives is going to be key.

Toxic Household Items:

  • Toothpaste- Fluoride
  • Fragrances- Candles, personal hygiene products
  • Plastics- Cooking utensils, storage containers, water bottles, plates, receipts
  • Laundry detergent
  • Cleaning supplies- phthalates, sulphates, triclosan, QUATS, butoxyethanol, chlorine

First step:

If you are using any of this toxic stuff, force yourself to switch before you help other people.

Hormone disruptors are a big one, especially when we know a lot of these trend towards ladies.
However, men have hormones too. Even if laundry detergent isn’t as much of a hormone disruptor for men as it is for women, it’s still going to cause issues potentially even affecting testosterone. Something as simple as laundry detergent can be affecting our immune system because of the toxicity and the inflammation it causes.

Prolonged exposure suppresses the immune response. When something more serious
like an infection shows up, it becomes a snowball effect. The infection just keeps adding on and on to the toxic load, until it starts to roll quicker. And all the while, we continue to expose ourselves to the original toxin.

Step 2: Water

If you’re concerned about contaminants in your home waters, contact your state drinking water
certification officer to obtain a list of certified laboratories in your state.

Did you know?

Davenport water has 20 contaminants. Life, 18; Northwestern, 12; and Logan has 39 contaminants.

Some of the common contaminants that we find in tap water are heavy metals. 186 million
people in the United States, which is a 56% of the country’s population, drink water from a
system detecting lead levels exceeding the level of one part per billion.

Step 3: Food

Meat, vegetables, and fruits.

  • Make sure that you’re going organic — the conventional is going to be full of
    antibiotics, hormones, etc.
  • Grass fed vs grain fed
  • Organic ≠ grass-fed/grass-finished
  • The Dirty dozen and The Clean 15

Fruits, vegetables, and plants in general cannot outrun predators — they can’t do anything. As such, they have defense chemicals built into them, making the plants hard to digest. Soaking plants — specifically nuts — in spring water does good because it gets those defense chemicals off, making it more easily digestible for our system.

Most people nowadays have very low stomach acid due to stress. People are eating a lot of
their food allergies, as well as grain-fed, hormone-filled meats, which are very hard on their body. This is affecting the liver directly and interfering with the body’s detoxification process. Inflammation builds up, and symptoms like brain fog, ringing ears, blurry vision, and more pop up and raise concerns.

Are you ready for practice?

“I highly recommend starting a social media page. Practice is really phenomenal and the more
you guys prepare the more you’ll be ready. Don’t wait!”
