Renowned Doctor’s Simple Tips To Help Turn the Toxic Tide   

January 9, 2013 (San Diego)--Dr. Paul Thompson is a nationally renowned surgeon and age management practitioner with the Cenegenics Medical Institute. He has helped patients around the country reverse diabetes, combat obesity, fight off genetic health risks, and has guided them to living longer and healthier lives. Dr. Thompson’s Tips ( / Twitter:  @drthompsonstips) have been featured by media outlets nationally, including national media outlets.

Dr. Thompson says “we are bombarded with toxins every day, even though we think we are being healthy”. These toxins can affect endocrine systems resulting in children experiencing earlier puberty and irregular hormone levels, diabetes, depression, and thyroid in adults.

The most common sources of these neuro-endocrine toxins are:

  • Plastics, including storage containers, wraps, can linings and water bottles
  • Pesticides & fertilizers- which affects many of the foods you feed your family every day.
  • Common Cosmetics
  • Common Cleaning products

Here are Dr. Thompson’s Tips to avoid these toxins to protect you and your family from A Toxic Takeover

1)     Plastics: avoid them!

  • Avoid them whether it is plastic water bottles, wraps or food containers.
  • Use a water filtration system. It avoids the use of plastic water bottles and saves a bunch of money.
  • Use glass food containers to store leftovers.

2)     GO organic, organic, and organic.

By going organic you can avoid the whole toxin trap. It may be a little more expensive on the front end but what is your health worth? You will SAVE MONEY in the long run in the healthcare you and your child will may need.

3)     Cosmetics and cleaning products                           

Look for the natural products. Companies realize this is becoming more and more important to the healthy and educated consumers so the products perform well and there are plenty on the market. Once again there is a bit more of a cost...but lots of visits to the doctor do as well. 

4)     Parents, stay away from BPA!

Look for BPA and BPS free toys. These are often found in the plastics and are a potent Neuro endocrine toxin. 

Dr. Thompson’s Final Prescription:

Good luck, a little extra time and money spent selecting food, cleaning and storing products, and toys will keep your family happier and safer. But for many it is the transition that is the tough part. Once you do, your long term health will change as you age.
