You can see Dr. Hyman’s enthusiasm for detoxification in this video, which shows us why we need to detoxify and steps we can all take to help the body rid itself of toxins.
I am passionate about detoxification, so when I ran into Dr. Mark Hyman at the Integrative Healthcare Symposium in New York City recently, I asked him what he was taking to maintain his glutathione levels, the antioxidant that plays a major role in detoxifying . He said N-acetylcysteine (NAC), selenium, alpha-lipoic acid and then was excited to show me a photo of his favorite dish, a large plate of bright green broccoli with garlic.
Here is a quick look at some of the research on vegetables and cancer.
Cruciferous or Brassica vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, bok choy, collard greens, and kale, are rich in sulforaphane and indole-3 carbinol (I3C) (Higdon et al. 2007).
This past Monday evening my father Dr. Galland and I went to his alma mater, New York University School of Medicine, for a lecture by Dr. David Perlmutter, an internationally recognized leader in integrated neurology.
