Lipophil Mediated Reduction of Toxicants in Humans: An Evaluationof an Ayurvedic Detoxification Procedure

Context: Lipophilic toxicants have been associated with hormone disruption, immune system suppression, reproductive disorders, several types of cancer, and other diseases. Due to environmental persistence and bio accumulation, body burdens of certain toxicants, such as dichloro diphenyldichloroethylene (DDE) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), appear to be a health risk despite the toxicants having been banned for decades.

Conclusion: The results of the 2 studies generally suggest that Ayurvedic Detoxification Methods (lipophil-mediated detoxification) may be effective in reducing body burdens of fat-soluble toxicants.
