Live Event Date: Sep 14, 2021
Expiration Date: May 31, 2024

Target Audience: RDs, DTRs, Health Professionals

Overview:
For many, the word "detox" conjures up images of snake oil and flashy websites with unsubstantiated claims. However, the biochemical process of detoxification is a vital part of the body's ability to eliminate toxicants effectively and neutralize oxidative stress from internal and external forces. RDNs need to be equipped with accurate information about sources of environmental chemical exposure and what undermines or supports our detoxification organs, so they can help patients differentiate fad from fact, and provide evidenced-based tools patients can use to optimize their health. This presentation will provide useful strategies for minimizing exposure and improving the channels of detoxification through realistic dietary and lifestyle modifications, and touch on the role of genetic variants as well as the use of supplementation.

Learning Objectives:
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
• Identify potential areas of exposure to toxicants in our environment and diet as well as their associated health risks.
• Discuss how the body's detoxification/biotransformation system works.
• Implement dietary and lifestyle strategies for supporting detoxification organs and pathways and avoid future exposure to toxins.
