In this interview, Christopher Shade, PhD, discusses the many factors that can block effective detoxification and how clinicians can address these issues. Cholestasis, endotoxins, estrogen, oxidation, and other detoxification disruptions are explained, as well as key nutrients and botanicals that can be used to help push toxins out and prevent re-absorption. Shade goes into detail about the detoxification protocol he has created.
