Episode 123: Sulfation: Another Important Detox Pathway

Dr. Eric Balcavage

Cindy Kennedy, FNP, is joined by Dr. Eric Balcavage for a discussion about the sulfation detoxification pathway. As our environment becomes more toxic, we become more toxic. The higher our toxic loads, the greater the chance for chronic illness. A healthy detoxification system provides powerful benefits for health.

Dr. Balcavage is the owner and founder of Rejuvagen, a functional medicine clinic in Chadds Ford, Pa. He is nationally recognized speaker and educator on various health related topics including thyroid physiology, bile physiology, detoxification, oxidative stress, methylation and chronic illness.

Dr. Balcavage is a Certified Nutrition Specialist (C.N.S.), a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, Board Certified in Integrative Medicine, along with being a licensed Chiropractor in Pennsylvania.

Dr. Balcavage is the co-host of Thyroid Answers Podcast. The podcast focuses on answering the pressing questions those suffering with chronic hypothyroid symptoms can’t get answered elsewhere. You can find his educational Thyroid Thursday videos on Vimeo and Youtube.

Dr Balcavage has made it his mission to change the way medicine looks at hypothyroidism. He is the co-author of the soon to be released book, Thyroid Debacle. The book, co-written by Kelly Halderman MD, addresses the problems with current allopathic and functional medicine approaches to hypothyroidism as well as the solutions to restoring thyroid physiology.
