The Boston Globe hails her as “One of the few authorities on natural and nontoxic consumer affairs” while The New York Times calls her “The Queen of Green.”

Through her website, radio show and books, Debra Lynn Dadd has been shining a spotlight on toxic chemicals for more than 30 years.

Here’s what this renowned advocate has to say about the importance of detoxing and which kind of supplements work the best.

When did you start investigating common household chemicals?

When I first found out—back in 1978—that there were toxic chemicals in my own home making my body sick, I wanted to know where they were found in consumer products, how they make us sick and how we can choose and find safe products.

I’ve been researching and writing about it ever since. There is so much in the news today about the dangers of toxic chemicals in consumer products.

Sure we have more safe products to choose from, but also more scientific data about the dangers of the toxic chemicals that still exist in products.

A growing number of health care professionals are coming to realize that exposure to toxic chemicals is the major cause of most illness. 

Why is detoxing a must in today’s world?

My entire adult life has been around one main focus: how to be free from the harmful effects of toxic chemicals.

At first I thought it was enough to eliminate toxic exposures in my home, and that was helpful for many years.

But there are toxic chemicals in the environment that we simply cannot control or avoid. A couple of years ago I realized that in order to be healthy you need to remove the chemicals that are stored in your body.

If you don’t remove that body burden of toxic chemicals, other therapies and remedies simply will not work... because the real problem is toxic chemical overload.

My life is dedicated to helping consumers be free of the harmful effects of toxic chemicals, and my focus is letting people know the good that is available to them.

What is your preferred detox method?

I advocate liquid zeolite in my book, Toxic Free. And that’s where Pure Body comes in. What Pure Body is doing is not just symptom specific.

It’s a little magnet that runs around attracting toxins and eliminating them through your urine. When the toxicants are gone, all the rest of your cells can function, your organs start functioning and then you have health.

Liquid zeolite is unique as a detox agent in that it removes toxic chemicals directly from your bloodstream, even if your body’s detox system isn’t functioning well.

There are other zeolite products out there, and from what I’ve seen, none of them compare to Pure Body Extra Strength.

You also advocate whole food supplements. What’s the difference?

I have been writing about people taking whole food supplements for at least 20 years as opposed to manufactured supplements.

In 2012 I did a thorough research project on dietary supplements and found that most dietary supplements are made from petroleum and other non-food materials.

Even the so-called “natural vitamins” put in synthetic nutrients. 

At the same time, the latest medical research is telling us that cells are the building blocks of health, and to have a healthy body we need to feed our body plant foods.

What have you personally experienced through detoxing and taking whole food supplements?

I spent a lot of my life barely getting out of bed in the morning then falling back into bed right after dinner to rest all evening.

Now I sleep well every night, think clearly every day, get a lot done, and am active from 6:00 in the morning to 10:30 at night.

I feel like I’m getting to the point where my life is no longer about “getting well” but rather about accomplishing increasing degrees of health.
