Norman Regional Health System

We are exposed to various toxins constantly. Just because we are exposed, does not mean we are toxic. If your detoxification system can manage your exposure level, you are okay. However, when your toxic load increases and/or your detoxification capacity decreases, then you will become toxic. A simple detox is not the answer as it might cause further burden and worsen your symptoms and performance.
