Santa Monica-based Gentle Wellness Center will host a presentation entitled “Empower your Life: Cleanse & Detox” on Monday, April 1 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The talk, intended to teach attendees how to jump-start their health safely, effectively, and with lasting results, will be presented by Dr. Edison de Mello, founder and CEO of Akasha Center of Integrative Medicine.
“We are exposed to toxins everyday: both environmentally and internally through our body’s normal byproducts of digestion and metabolism,” opines de Mello. “Humans have an amazing ability to adapt to challenging situations and environmental insults; however, a lifetime of exposure to these ubiquitous chemicals increases our ‘total body burden’. The good news is that we can commit to a period of time where we minimize the chemicals we are exposed to in our environment and optimize our body’s natural cleansing processes.”
