It is our responsibility to do what we can to lower our toxic load and keep ourselves from taking in more toxins than we have to. Today, we'll talk all about your internal toxic load and how you can take the best care of your body.

Today, we're excited to talk to Julie Waltz about managing your internal toxic load. Julie, thank you so much for being here with us today.

Julie Waltz: Absolutely! I'm so excited to be here with you.

doTERRA: My first question for you is kind of just a really broad overview. What do we even mean when we're talking about our internal toxic load?

Julie: So to me, that means the level of toxicity inside of our bodies, like what level does our body have?

doTERRA: So what kinds of things are we taking in that might be contributing to that toxic load?

Julie: So really, mainly it's the things that we're ingesting, you know, things like highly processed foods, lots of synthetics, but also anything that we're breathing in. Anything that's in the air can contribute to our internal toxic load, as well as any of our daily body care products.

doTERRA: That is very interesting. That definitely makes you think twice about some of the things you might be bringing into your home or some of the things that you're around on your day-to-day basis.

Julie: Absolutely!

doTERRA: Now, Julie, what are some of the potential effects that we might see from ingesting these toxins?

Julie: Yeah, so when we're looking at how our body works, we have filtering organs, and that's our liver, our kidneys, our lungs, even our skin. And their job is to eliminate the toxins that we have inside of our bodies. But if we're bombarding our bodies with too many toxins, they can become sluggish and overworked.

And I kind of—I visualize like a drain in a kitchen sink. If we're putting too much junk down that drain, it's going to get clogged, and it's not going to be able to eliminate the waste properly. Similar to our bodies, if we're putting in too much junk into our bodies, those organs aren't going to be able to do the job that they're supposed to do.

doTERRA: Absolutely. And I think that is such a good thing to remember that it's such a balance game. You know, we definitely can't avoid all toxins, but we need to make sure that we are limiting them where we can.

Julie: Yes, definitely.

doTERRA: Now, how can different doTERRA products help me in this? How can they help me manage my toxic load?

Julie: Well, for starters, the doTERRA products are really awesome because doTERRA is so good at avoiding synthetics at all costs. Their oils are completely non-synthetic, and their supplements and their body care products, they really contain the highest quality ingredients I have found on the market. And so because of that, because they don't have synthetics in them and they’re natural, our bodies don't have to worry about filtering out as many things.

And so what that's going to do is it’s going to help to support our body's efforts in eliminating toxins because again, we're not overloading our system.

doTERRA: Absolutely. Now, Julie, before we end today, what I really want to know is what are your favorite doTERRA products to use when you're managing your internal toxic load?

Julie: OK, so this is my favorite thing to talk about because I am obsessed with all of the doTERRA products. But just to keep it short for time’s sake, my personal must haves are the doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack®, DigestZen TerraZyme® (the digestive enzymes), and then of course, pretty much any citrus oil.

I am a citrus lover. I could just bathe in citrus oils practically. But my favorite citrus oils are Lime, Tangerine, and especially Air-X™. And I know Air-X doesn't sound like an oil that you would be taking internally, but it tastes delicious, and I love to add a drop or two to my glass of drinking water every single day.

doTERRA: That is one that I hadn't thought about either—that Air-X. That is so fun. Is it usually in your glass of water that you're taking these? Or are there other ways that you ingest them?

Julie: Yeah, typically my citrus oils, I'm putting in my glass of drinking water, but other products that I use kind of internally and even topically, you know, we use the doTERRA On Guard® Natural Whitening Toothpaste in our house and then all of their body care products.

And so really being mindful of, you know, any lotions you're using or any personal fragrance, shampoos and conditioners, anything like that. doTERRA has absolutely some of the best products that I have found for body care, and we have completely switched over everything to doTERRA.

So those are just some ways that I know I trust that I am supporting my family in the best way that I can by using those products from doTERRA.

doTERRA: I think that is absolutely right. Julie, thank you so much for sitting down with us today, for sharing a little bit about how you use doTERRA products to manage your internal toxic load. It's been great talking to you.

Julie: Thanks so much!
