4 Ways to Detox Your Brain and Your Life


With age comes a tendency to rely on feeling that symptoms of memory loss, lack of focus, headaches, and fatigue are normal. However, let’s explore the proper explanation for these feelings as: Toxins are a silent killer. Joseph Pizzorno, ND addresses this very idea in his book, The Toxin Solution.

The Toxin Solution, offers a four-pronged approach:

  1. Understanding where toxins are found and how they cause disease.
  2. Preparing your detoxification systems to eliminate toxins quickly and safely.
  3. Undergoing intense detoxification.
  4. Following simple guidelines for a toxin-free life.

Exposure to Toxins Can Create Brain Injury

Today you don’t have to be an industrial worker to be exposed to toxins that can cause injury to the brain. There are many kinds of ‘everyday’ toxins in the environment that can harm your brain and contribute to brain toxicity. Some of the more common ones include:

• Fuels
• Mercury, lead and other heavy metals
• Drugs and alcohol
• Carbon monoxide
• Cleaning products
• Nail polish remover
• Mold
• Perfume

Treat Your Gut as Your Second Brain

Among a lot of brilliant advice, Joseph Pizzorno, ND mentions the dangers of an unhealthy gut. He also explains why you should devote two months to getting your gut back on the track that your body deserves. What a lot of people must know is that your gut health is pivotal to having efficient brain health. Gut health contributes to weight gain, obesity, diabetes, anxiety, depression, and stress.

Without proper gut health, toxins will simply flow to the next organs in line and on to other areas of the body. The result is that it is creating a disaster for your body to function properly. For instance, intestinal problems increase inflammation, that low-level fire that destroys your organs, and increases your risk for low mood, worry, chronic pain and less-than-ideal cognitive health. This is why optimizing the “gut-brain axis” is critical to your mental health.

The Toxin Solution offers beneficial advice when resetting our bodies. It will help you get healthy and stay healthy while winning the war against our toxic filled society. If you have struggled with your health, now is the time to take action for your own well-being, once and for all. Here is how:

Reset Your Toxic Filled Body

In only eight weeks, Joseph Pizzorno’s The Toxin Solution will:

• Reveal how to avoid avoidable toxins.
• Strengthen and repair detox organs: the gut, liver, and kidneys.
• Support your body’s normal processes for excreting toxins.
• Actively facilitate the release of toxins.
• Repair toxin- related damage.

Probiotic supplements help keep your gut in a healthy, life-supporting balance. The beneficial bacteria and the harmful bacteria compete for survival in your gut. As with any battle, the more “good” soldiers you have on your side, the more likely you are to win the battle.

If you are ready to regain control over your life, or help a loved one do the same, contact Amen Clinics today.


  1. This is a decent picture of me. I was exposed to organophosphates and between low dosage undetected and other exposures that I did not want, I look like someone else. If I reduce anti anxiety meds, maybe I will look alert again instead of like a drug addict. My skin isn’t pink and weight loss caused lots of lines I do not know where to begin. More distilled water? Coconut oil pulling? Facial Sauna. I looked okay in October and then suddenly, I became this other person in the camera lens and in the mirror. I would like to look more like I did in October and being alert is half of the equation. My blood labs look good but I do not look healthy and I look like I have been under the strain of chronic chem exposure although I tried countless times to avoid the risk. I want to look better so I don’t have low self esteem. I liked how I looked until now. I will be talking to a neuropsychologist about this. I need to look better or I am not motivated to get on with my life which involved public speaking, singing on you tube. I cannot do public things when I do not even look like myself. Are there any support groups that aren’t about cancer for people who need to look better without bothering with plastic surgery? I need a makeover group that has room for someone exposed to pesticides.

  2. Distilled water removes all minerals, not good. Do some research and find a high quality water filter that removes the toxins. Natural News offers one, Berkey, Aquasana, are others, there are several out there. Did you start closing all the windows in your house in October? If so, what’s inside? Also, are you EMF sensitive? Good luck.

  3. switched to purified, I like alkaline water too. No distilled at present. No EMF issues. I look terrible but my labs look fine. Guess toxins go where they want to and don’t show up where you’d think they should. I need a makeover for chemo patients but it’s not chemo. Thanks for the tip on distilled Some people think that’s all you should drink.

  4. I like alkaline water. I just hate not looking healthy any more. Toxins cause a meth addict look.

  8. Had a nerve density test done on my scalp. The results came back with a value of 5.2 and 27 is considered normal . I was told my nerves are dying. What does that mean? How does that happen? I had the biopsy since I have lost over 3/4 of my hair. I was also told that I have mass cell degranulation. How do I remedy this? I have a very clean diet and good labs. had every test done under the sun.

  9. This sounds logical. I have had to take Rx opioids for yrs due to chronic pain w/RA, fibromyalgia & brain surgery. I had been an opioid addict for years previous to currently but had achieved sobriety for several years. Now the medication doesn’t control the pain because my tolerance level is high so I’m detoxing myself at home before going back to rehab. My goal is to clear my body of these toxins and face the depression & grief I’ve been dealing silently with for 3 years. This trying to control my pain with opiates causes unbelievable anxiety in me because in my mind it is like a “loaded gun” pointing at my head. Is there a way to flush these toxins out any quicker? Using spring water, Gatorade & some sweets which helps speed up metabolism I was told several yrs before when detoxing. Any thoughts?

  10. Just because you eat a clean diet with grass fed meats and organic fruits and veggies not on the dirty dozen is not enough. Meats have to be grass finished to be assured to be GMO grain free. Who knows what’s on imported fruits and veggies?Keep going… natural make up, cleaning products (house and body), natural deodorant, hair products including dyes… for a start. “Cosmetics” have no real regulations so beware. And don’t forget food sensitivities… totally good foods that your precious body just won’t tolerate anymore. Good luck!

  12. I am really confused as to which water to drink. I would like to buy a new filter for my tap. There is so much conflicting information out there!

  13. What might you need if an industrial worker?

  14. Hey Kandy,

    Just a suggestion: Both of my parents have arthritis (one OA, one RA). My mom had heard somewhere that cutting nightshade plants (potatoes, eggplant and tomatoes) out of your diet reduces the inflammation from arthritis. They both loved those things but not eating them apparently makes the pain much more bearable for them.

  15. Medications cause ppoblems and sometimes we need them. But there are other alternatives that may be helpful. One is Hypnotherapy. Find someone qualified in Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy in your area. They can help you with the distress and the pain. And they can teach you how to use self hypnosis as well. And when we have pain we also compromise our body in some ways and are out of alignment. Chiropractic care can help as well.

  16. I don't have an Amen Clinic in Toronto, and I am looking for ways to make the glymphatic system work more effectively. I had read somewhere that sleeping on your right side helps the flow, however, I have no proof of this. Then of course, drinking a lot of water. Some people get these tumors called meningiomas and they may grow slowly but if they start growing why not mitigate their growth by doing all you an to help stop them in their tracks or slow them down as they are supposed to be slow, but the longer we live…how do we know what's going to happen? I read a post on a patient's page, who says he/or she ate less salt. As salt makes them retain water. Yet, the trend nowadays is to put sea salt in your water. Albeit, compliance to any thing is tough, as ADHD does run in our genes so that if we do have any advice that we can get that doesn't interfere with our other needs and supplements, or medicines… then? Who better can advise us?
