Improving Health and Removing Toxins Through Naturopathic Medicine with Dr. Heather Sandison ND

Dr. Heather Sandison joins Daniel Schmachtenberger on Collective Insights to discuss medicine and health, particularly when it comes to nutrition and the removal of toxins. Dr. Sandison describes the high toxin load in our modern environment. While many physicians are starting to appreciate the power of detox protocols, one aspect is usually overlooked — properly balancing nutrients in the body. Daniel and Dr. Sandison talk about why nutrient balance is so important and how naturopathy can help.
