I just got word about an amazing opportunity not just for all Lymies and people with chronic illnesses, but for anyone who is interested in learning more about anything and everything related to detoxing. I can barely calm myself down enough to type this post--I'm so excited to share this information with you all!
Deanna Minnich, PhD, is collaborating with The Institute for Functional Medicine to put on an eight day, completely FREE, online workshop/seminar/event centered around the following topic question:
Do you know how to stay clean in a toxic world?
Again, this online program (The Detox Summit) is online and FREE, and will be going on August 4-11, 2014. All you have to do to is go HERE, type in your first name and your email, and you're all set to attend this wonderful online opportunity!
There are several well-known names from all across the medical, nutritional, and health fields who will be sharing some invaluable information. From the Summit's website:
"The compilation of 30 experts in various areas of medicine, nutrition, and personal growth are what make this Summit unique, offering a well-rounded, credible approach to a much-debated issue. Learn to navigate your way through I day's toxic terrain by recognizing toxins, what to do about them, and how to change your life into a healthier you!"
This panel of experts includes names such as:

And that's just a sampling--there are so many more wonderful experts on this list!
The topics discussed during this eighty day Summit cover every conceivable aspect of detoxification, including (but not at all limited to) topics such as:
The Biochemistry and History of Detoxification
Metabolic Disturbances and Detox
Toxicity and Brain Function
Staying Healthy with Nutrition and Detox
Toxicity and Impact in Women's and Children's Health
Cutting-Edge Diagnostics for Toxicity
Detoxing the Soul
Cancer Processes and Detoxficiation: Focus on Glutathione
And there's so much more that will be covered that I simply don't have the space to type it all in this post.
Just trust me, this is good stuff and will be worth registering--after all, it's FREE.
In fact, when you register, you actually get a few free gifts via email/download. These are:
Food & Spirit Nourish Your Whole Self™ Report by Deanna Minich, PhD. "This booklet gives you a unique approach to food and eating using a combination of modern science and ancient traditions. You will learn how foods connect to seven aspects of yourself: your body, emotions, power, heart, voice, mind and spirit."
Detox Your Medicine Cabinet: 26 Herbs and Supplements that Treat Common Symptoms by Aviva Romm, MD "It’s time we rethink our medicines. Cleaning out your medicine cabinet isn’t just about getting rid of expired meds that might be hazardous to someone in your household if accidentally ingested or that have had an FDA recall–although these are good reasons–it’s about ending over-reliance on common but potentially unsafe medications. What’s great about herbs and supplements is that many serve more than one purpose, and some are even common kitchen ingredients!"
Seriously, this is such an amazing opportunity I had to share it here immediately! I'm already registered and I hope some of you will seize this chance to learn everything you ever wanted to know (and possibly more) about the ever-so-crucial element of life--detox!
