pHresh Products announces they will be sponsoring  The Detox Summit in collaboration with The Institute for Functional medicine (IFM) on August 4th – 10th, 2014. Following the summit, during the month of September, there’s a 21-day Detox Challenge that everyone can participate in.

The Detox Summit is an online event for those who sign up via this link: During the week of August 4-10, 2014, people who have registered for the event will have free access to audio recordings of cutting-edge interviews with 30 experts in the area of toxicity, everything from environmental toxins in food, air and water, to internally-generated toxins such as thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Listeners will not only be informed of the perils of these poisons, but, more importantly, there will be a focus on breakthrough solutions to reduce and transform them for healthier living.  More information on The Detox Challenge will be released this summer.

The Detox Summit will feature 30 experts, such as functional medicine physician and best-selling author, Mark Hyman, M.D., nutrigenomics pioneer and founder of Functional Medicine, Jeffrey Bland, PhD, neurologist and best-selling author, David Perlmutter, MD, and many more. These experts will help guide and inform the public on topics like endocrine disruptors and fertility, dental amalgams, laboratory tests for determining whether we are toxic, why we should watch out for gluten and genetically modified foods.

Laurie Hofmann, CEO of IFM states, “The Institute for Functional Medicine is pleased to collaborate with Deanna Minich, PhD, on the upcoming Detox Summit and Detox Challenge planned for August – September, 2014. Deanna has served as a passionate, creative, and deeply knowledgeable member of our Functional Nutrition development team and faculty. We are thrilled to collaborate with Deanna on the Detox Summit and Detox Challenge and look forward to the opportunity of unveiling some of IFM’s personalized nutrition and food plan suites as part of these two very important and exciting online events. We hope that clinicians and patients alike will seize this unique opportunity to participate in both the education-oriented Summit and the experiential/interactive Challenge.”

The Institute for Functional Medicine Medical Director, Patrick Hanaway, MD, comments, “Using food and nutrition to assist the body in detoxification may seem new to some, but evidence in mainstream medical journals indicate the detrimental aspects of toxicity on health. For example, newer research indicates that chronic conditions like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity are all associated with environmental toxins in the body. We need to start looking at the root of chronic diseases rather than simply providing a “pill for an ill”. Identifying the root cause of disease and treating with a personalized approach is what we embrace in Functional Medicine. Detoxification is one way to get at the root cause of multifactorial diseases.”
