Welcome to The Healthy Me episode number 005… I’m Trina Felber, Registered Nurse and CEO of Primal Life Organics.
When it comes to tired and cliché expressions, there’s one that holds more truth than all others:
Health is wealth.
Unfortunately, too few people recognize and appreciate the value of their health until it’s taken away from them.
When joints stiffen, endurance wanes, and the acuity of the mind slips, that’s when the average person begins to realize just how important their health really is.
For many, declining physical and cognitive performance are considered an inevitability. Something that happens to all enroute to a final resting place. And while that deterioration may be inevitable, how soon it beings to happen remains under our control to some degree.
How we eat, how we sleep, how we live, and how we detoxify can mean the difference between looking like a 30 year-old at the age of 40, and looking like a 40 year-old at the age of 30.
And few know that reality as well as today’s guest on The Healthy Me podcast, Dr. Daniel Pompa.
A leader mind in the health and wellness industry, Dr. Pompa travels all over the world to talk about the root causes of debilitating diseases like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and various autoimmune disorders so people can more fully enjoy life from the womb to the tomb.
Though he is a licensed physician, Dr. Pompa’s subject-matter expertise is rooted in personal experience with neurotoxic illness and heavy metal poisoning—an endeavor that battered him with chronic fatigue, unrelenting stress, and a prematurely thinning head of hair.
When conventional medicine suggested Dr. Pompa address the symptoms of his deterioration rather than their root cause, he took matters into his own hands by conducting an exhaustive study of cellular health, and what it takes to detoxify individual cells so the body can heal itself naturally.
Today, Dr. Pompa helps thousands of patients around the world by sharing the results of his exhaustive study, as well as the detoxification methods and processes he used to heal himself.
Trina Felber: All right. I’m here today with Dr. Daniel Pompa. He’s a global leader in the health and wellness industry, traveling across the country educating practitioners and the public on the root causes of inflammation, inflammation-driven diseases such as weight loss resistance, Hypothyroid, Diabetes, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, autoimmune disorders, and other chronic conditions. Dr. Pompa received his Bachelors of Science from the University of Pittsburgh and Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Life University, graduating second in his class. His authority today, however, is rooted in his own personal battle, having overcome serious neurotoxic illness and heavy metal poisoning using the cellular detoxification strategies learned in his journey back to health. A relentless self-experimenter, Doctor Pompa has been studying, practicing, and teaching true cellular detox, I struggle on that word every time, for nearly two decades. Dr Pompa’s [inaudible 00:01:05] runs counter to mainstream tactics, which focus on suppressing symptoms by seeking the root cause of illness and removing it so the body can execute the healing. I totally believe in that. Coaching clients with severe health challenges remains one of his greatest passions, and I know that to be true, and seeing lives change from a multi-therapeutic approach fuels his mission to change modern healthcare.

Dr. Pompa: Yeah, hey you said, “cellular,” the next time and for a dyslexic, you should see the words that I torture myself.
Trina Felber: Gosh that word just gets me every time and you had to put it in here like five times. Well I’m so excited to talk to you. We are personal friends and I have heard you speak. I have done a couple of your programs. I am a true liver and believer of everything that you preach, so I want to talk to you today. I’m so glad to have you join me because my tribe will totally love you.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah. Well hey, we’re believers of Primal Life Organics. My wife now swears by them and she’s a hard sell.
Trina Felber: She is! And when I gave her that Vitamin C serum, her eyes lit up and after she used it she was like, “Ah! I gotta have that!” So welcome!
Dr. Pompa: Yeah yeah. [inaudible 00:02:31] love the products.
Trina Felber: I wanna focus on the detox of yourselves from the inside out. I do a lot with the outside, but I want to hear about the inside out. So share your story on how cellular detox saved your life. I want to hear that from pain to purpose.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, you know I didn’t plan this. It wasn’t like I sat down one day and said, “Okay, I’ve got a great idea,” you know? “I’m going to talk about cellular detox and [inaudible 00:03:00],” I mean it did. It came through my own battle. I didn’t know what was wrong at first. Matter of fact, I was in the best shape of my life. I was racing my bike, I mean I was act the expert level. Always well, had two young boys at the time and then fatigue hit so I thought I was just over-training, backed off, and then didn’t work. You know it was like I took 10 days off and it was horrible. I would come back and I would have headaches and I wasn’t sleeping. Then it got worse. It went into digestive issues. I was basically allergic and sensitive to every food I was eating. Out of nowhere, my fatigue got debilitating to the point where then I started getting anxiety and panic attacks and bizarre stuff. I mean, literally, body twitching, I was sound sensitive, irritability that just was off the charts. So I literally became someone I didn’t know anymore and with the kids, at that age, life got really hard. I couldn’t even keep up with my practice at that time.
But after some time, no doubt, I have to give credit where credit’s due. God led me through a lot of answers and those answers are what I teach today. I got my life back and now I help people from all over the world with unexplainable illnesses like you said in the thing, autoimmune, I mean a lot of different conditions. But you know, the key is really going upstream. Look, when I was sick, my hair was falling out, it was thinning, low body temperature, so thyroid problems, couldn’t adapt to stress, wiped out fatigue, adrenal fatigue. I mean no doubt I have [inaudible 00:04:38]…
Trina Felber: You know what you’re describing, a lot of people out there have these issues. A lot of people have these issues.
Dr. Pompa: You know, I just spoke to a gal this morning, a gold-medalist athlete and she said, “You know I suffer for years with those symptoms. I thought it was normal.” Now she is an Olympic gold-medalist, okay? She says, “But you have to understand, all of us have the brain fog, the low energy, the sleep issues.” So it becomes normal in your life and then, you know after working with her, she’s like, “I can’t believe that I lived that way for so long.” You know but you’re right, what you’re saying. But here’s the problem. You know, when I would address my adrenals and my thyroid, some things would get better but a lot of things would actually get worse. I definitely didn’t get better just like most people, right? And the frustrating part is my blood work was normal. So a lot of people take thyroid meds, I didn’t, but when they do, their blood work gets better, but yet they still don’t feel better, right? So …
Trina Felber: THat’s the key point.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah. Key point. Totally key point, right?
Trina Felber: Right. You’re not getting to the root cause which is exactly why I love what you do because, you know, and I preach this too. It all comes down to the health of the individual cells because that’s what makes up everything.
Dr. Pompa: That’s right.
Trina Felber: It makes up your tissues, your organs, and your systems and if that cell isn’t healthy, you can speak on this better than I can. These symptoms come up.
Dr. Pompa: Well, look, that’s it. I mean I coined the term, “You have to fix the cell to get well.” And more specifically, you have to detox the cell to get well. So one of the thing that I have taught now for years is, real detox has to be at the cell. So many people today are identifying the fact that their hormones aren’t right, they’re not right because they have some toxic issues. But they’re downstream doing colon cleanses, the liver cleanse, the 10 day cleanse … I was actually in Whole Foods a couple weeks ago and I took a picture of all of the cleanses. You know, [inaudible 00:06:40] it was actually remarkable. I myself has, I said, “Oh my gosh.” I remember the day where it was just one or two things, right? It’s like … I’m trying to get there …
Trina Felber: Now it’s like a buffet bar.
Dr. Pompa: Oh my gosh! It’s every cleanse! But the problem with all of those cleanses is that they’re too far downstream. They’re not getting to the cell. So it’s not that I even have a problem with that, most of them are poopers, you know meaning that they just get it going, the bowels going, which can be very helpful. And you know I don’t have a problem with infared saunas, but you know, you’re not going to get what’s happening at the cell, right? You know look, the bottom line is that when we look at the toxins that are affecting us today, they’re affecting the function of the cell. And what happens, and I’ll keep it very simple, not jumping into the science, but what happens is, is it shuts down the normal detox pathways of the cell. Now you’re in trouble. I don’t care how many colon cleanses you do or how much corella you take. It’s … you know now the cell isn’t doing what it should do. That’s a problem.
Trina Felber: Right and part of that is because it can’t function normally so it’s not gonna be able to actually have a normal life span itself, possibly.
Dr. Pompa: That’s right. Well and then what happens is, here’s what happens. Once you shut down the detox pathways of the cell, now what happens is, these toxins start building up in the cell. Now here’s the other problem, your DNA is in the cell. So now it starts turning on bad genes. Now what does that mean?
Trina Felber: And then you start getting all those other issues.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, right. That means your thyroid you know, that gene can be turned on for a thyroid condition. Listen, we all have genes of susceptibility. Thyroid problems, Diabetes, I mean we can go down the list, Cancer, you know whatever it is. But what we used to think they were, you know, just that you’re genetic thing. You were gonna get Diabetes because your mom had it and you know, that was the dogma that went on for many years. Now we know that’s not true. We know that the genes actually get turned on. So yes, you have, I have susceptibilities. I had high blood pressure when I was in ninth grade. They weren’t gonna let me on the wrestling team.
My mother had high blood pressure so guess what was told to me? “Well you it because your mother has it.” And I was like, “I’m doomed, right?” ‘Cause I watched my mother’s health deteriorate. Look, you know, once I got my cells well as we’re pointing out, once I did cellular detox, et cetera. By the way, my diet didn’t change my blood pressure issue. It did take the detox. But it turned the gene off, that was the point. So the genes are getting turned on of susceptibility and it’s because really of a toxic cell. So if we’re going to turn the genes off, we have to take the stress away from the cell. And then the best news is, is the genes can get turned off and then we turn on good ones. So …
Trina Felber: So and really, if you want to get rid of a chronic disease, this is the best possible chance of it happening, right? Like healing your cells.
Dr. Pompa: Look, I’m blessed to help people from literally all over the world, because I do just virtual coaching now, right? And you know I train doctors mostly so I don’t have a brick and mortar practice so I do just virtual you know, one on one coaching with people ’cause I love it still. And I’ll tell ya, look the conditions [inaudible 00:09:53] from neurodegenerative, the impossible, the autoimmune, et cetera. The body can fix it all. It does. I don’t fix anything. But you have to remove the interference and when you do it at the cellular level, the body can heal. I don’t care. I mean I’ve seen the impossible happen but you have to go upstream to the real problem.
Trina Felber: And really that’s what I like to talk about is the body always tries to bring you back to normal. Always, in every detox or everything that you do, but we’re messing it up, a little bit or a lot, by environmental factors, by medications, by diet. When you factor all that in, we sort of mess it up because the body always tries to heal itself and go back to natural.
But I want to ask you, explain what generational toxicity is.
Dr. Pompa: That’s a great question because, you know, my bud, we were at Bulletproof together and that was actually my talk, right? I started out meeting that many people think, “Okay I did a cleanse for a month,” right? It’s like, “Or I do a cleanse a year.” You know the level of toxicity is so much deeper than that. It starts in the womb and it goes to the tomb, right? But let’s talk about that because if you look at the number one cause of lead, it’s mom, meaning that we, our parents and us, grew up in the lead generation. Everything had lead, right? The gasoline, the paint, I mean it was in the air, everywhere. We were all exposed to it. If you take dust in a house built before 1978, you find lead in, even to this day, because it was just everywhere, all right, the paint, the windows, you name it.
So the fact is, is that that lead is stored in the bones. That’s the problem. The body will shuttle it in the bones to protect itself. Here’s the issue, during pregnancy it’s very normal to lose bone during pregnancy and when you do, out comes the lead into the baby in utero. So, I experienced this personally. My wife had extremely high lead levels just like her mom. Her mom ended up with breast cancer, standard treatments. I told her, “If you don’t get to the cause, Joyce, you’re gonna end up back here 10 years from now, that’s what studies show.” I’m telling you, it was 10 years right at that year mark and she ended up dying two years later of uterine cancer. She didn’t get to the cause.
My wife was heading in the same direction and we were trying to balance her methylation, which helps get rid of toxic hormones, you know, because she had so much low methylation, she wasn’t getting rid of her toxic estrogen, and therefore she was gonna end up like her mother. But it wasn’t happening. We ended up testing her lead. Off the chart. So my point is this, though, we raised healthy children on a perfect diet, nursed, had our babies at home un-vaccinated. I mean all these amazing things and my kids’ digestion were horrible. Diarrhea, constipation, the one was like colicky. All these things, candida problems. Tested their lead. Off the charts. Where’d they get it from? Mom. It’s generational.
Then one more point, mercury. We know that mercury gets into the brain, causes hormone dysfunction. Where do we get most of it? In utero. The number of fillings, lady, those silver fillings in your mouth, is proportional on studies. Matter of fact, one is called “The [inaudible 00:13:15] Study,” the other one is called “The Duress Study” is proportional how much is in your brain, but how much is in the baby’s brain in utero, and that’s the duress study. So, I mean, that’s what we’re getting at.
Trina Felber: That’s scary. That’s really scary because you feel like you’re doing everything you can to make yourself healthy, but you don’t realize that this started a long time ago. So doing a detox like you said, a week-long detox, whatever it may be, 10 day detox, it’s getting a little bit but it’s not actually getting to inside the cell. So how do environmental toxins affect us at the cellular level? Talk about that for a minute.
Dr. Pompa: You know, okay. So I talked kinda briefly on how it affects the thyroid and you know, these different hormones, but imagine if this is a cell. So on every cell, actually I’m gonna go a step further. Watch this folks. We’re gonna draw the cell.
Ah look at this. This is like a picture is worth a thousand words. So that’s a cell. So on every cell are these receptor to all of your hormones. So let’s, we talked about thyroid, let’s just use that as an example. So thyroid hormone, actually the one that most doctors give is called T4, it’s an inactive form, it has to convert into an active form called T3. Okay now follow me here, because there’s one problem right here. This conversion, most of it takes place in the liver. So when people get very toxic, their liver starts not working the way it should, and many of you don’t make that conversion. Okay now why is that important? Because here’s the thing, they’re looking … the doctors will give you the T4 if they feel like your blood work is finally off, and by the way it takes 20 years for your blood work, you know having a thyroid problem and not feeling well, hair falling out, skin dry, can’t lose weight, before your blood work’s even off, right? But okay, finally it is. They give you this. That makes your blood work look normal, but the problem is, is if you can’t convert it because many toxins, there’s actually selenium, is very important as well … I’m trying to write. My pen’s dying [inaudible 00:15:25].
Anyway, let me see if I can get it writing down here. So selenium, nope need a new pen. So Selenium is important in this conversion and heavy metals like mercury bind selenium. So okay, so heavy metals can bind selenium, interfere with the conversion. Heavy metals can slow down the liver and interfere with the conversion. So that’s one big problem is why your blood work would look normal and you still don’t feel well.
Okay, now this T3, let’s say you do convert. Now the T3 has to attach to this receptor on the cell. Now toxins make their way into this fatty membrane and guess what they do? They cause inflammation and now those receptors are blunted and they can’t get the message from the thyroid hormone. So guess what? It doesn’t get its message in the cell, you don’t feel well, and again your blood work can look normal. So. that’s the problem is toxins can interfere here. Toxins can interfere here, and I’ll draw one more example or I’ll state one more example.
Trina Felber: I love that. That’s very simple. Thank you for putting it like that. Yeah.
Dr. Pompa: It is, you know some of it, but yet people aren’t talking about that. You know when you have these fillings that I mentioned, and this is one example, that creates mercury vapor ’cause `50 percent of those silver fillings is mercury. The mercury goes into the brain. I mentioned the study that was in [inaudible 00:16:48] okay? That showed that the number of fillings in your mouth is proportional how much mercury is in the brain. But where they found most of it is the pituitary hypothalamus. What is that? That controls your thyroid. That controls your adrenals. That controls your hormones. So when the control tower’s being poisoned, I don’t care how many bioidentical hormones you’re taking, I don’t care what you’re doing downstream, even the perfect diet. It won’t fix you. So that’s why I realized I couldn’t sleep. I was producing this cortisol boost in the middle of the night, would wake me up in the middle of the night. My pituitary wasn’t right and it wasn’t ’til I got the heavy metal out of the pituitary that I was able to sleep and not have anxiety, you know et cetera. So multiple places the toxins can interfere with the cell and interfere with your hormones.
Trina Felber: So what are the most common toxins that we need to be aware of and we should be avoiding as much as possible?
Dr. Pompa: Well, you know, we talked about the generational issue, right? So we inherit lead from our moms. We inherit mom’s mercury. Oh and then we go on and we get flu shots, which still contains 25 micrograms of mercury, and it’s still in many vaccines. So the kids now are loaded up. I mean we may have gotten four today they are getting 70-80.
Trina Felber: Oh my gosh, that’s amazing.
Dr. Pompa: [crosstalk 00:18:04] Yeah. So even the vaccines they’ve taken out the mercury, now they’re putting aluminum in [inaudible 00:18:11] Hugh [00:18:13] Funbur, he’s the leading immunologist, at least the most quoted okay, he’s stated that the increase in Alzheimer’s, dementia, all of it, he feels is the bioaccumulation of mercury and aluminum in the brain. When asked where we’re getting it? Flu shots. I mean he … the CDC is still attacking him for that comment, but he stands behind his comment. So the point is, is that we’re getting these exposure from utero all the way through our life. Now listen, here’s the problem. There’s a third player that has recently entered the game, you know, probably mostly in the 90s. It’s called glyphosate. They’re spraying it on all of our food. So …
Trina Felber: What is glyphosate? Explain what that is.
Dr. Pompa: It’s the active ingredient in RoundUp. It’s in basically all of the herbicides now because the patent ran out so now everybody is using it, and the problem is that it allows these heavy metals that we already have in us, [inaudible 00:19:16] to cross even deeper into the brain. Stephanie [inaudible 00:19:19], that was a 2012 study. She’s the senior scientist out of MIT, she showed that it’s causing these, early dementia … By the way, there was a University of Virginia study and they found, they looked at people over the age of 28. A hundred percent of them already had early signs of dementia and Alzheimer’s. A hundred percent! I mean that’s how bad our brains are getting.
By glyphosate is allowing these heavy metals to cross deeper into the brain and it’s opening up our gut barrier and our blood/brain barrier. So that now is driving food allergies, sensitivities … Everybody’s running from gluten but it’s not the gluten. It’s the fact that these chemicals like glyphosate are opening up our gut barrier and allowing these proteins like gluten to cross in and then our body makes antibodies to it. So the bottom line is, you just put those three things together, the mercury, the lead, and the glyphosate, we have a perfect storm here. Now we see why by 2032, it’s estimated that one out of two boys is gonna be on the Austism Spectrum. We’re talking about a portion of, one third of the population with dementia and Alzheimer’s. I mean come on, I mean how does this happen? Well, it’s happening because of this perfect storm.
Trina Felber: Well, okay, what symptoms do we … like what are the general symptoms or the most common symptoms of cellular toxicity? What do we look for?
Dr. Pompa: Well here it is. I mean it’s the brain fog, low energy, eventually leads to not getting good sleep, okay maybe you sleep through the night. But some people don’t get to sleep. Some people wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep. That’s neurotoxicity. Now, let’s say you do sleep. The problem is this, if you don’t measure your delta sleep, your deep sleep, it makes the problem even worse because you wake up, you’re tired through the day. But during delta sleep, your brain actually detoxes. Literally. So we have the Oura ring, right? You’ve seen the aura …
Trina Felber: Right, right, yeah. Mine’s a little different but yeah, mm-hmm (affirmative).
Dr. Pompa: Is that the new one?
Trina Felber: This one if Motive.
Dr. Pompa: Oura Ring now has one that looks like this now. But anyway, the bottom line is this though, this technology is where you can actually look at your sleep and some people might be shocked that they’re spending like five, ten, twenty minutes in delta sleep. It’s not enough to detox the brain so the brain is more toxic and know, they’re linking this to dementia now as well. So the point is though, is that those symptoms right there, classic digestive issues, right? Just not right, you know, you’re taking this, you’re taking that. You adjusted your diet, that’s not right. So just brain fog, low energy, sleep issues, hormone problems in general, all neuro …
Trina Felber: And weight problems, too, because your thyroid is responsible for your metabolism.
Dr. Pompa: That’s right. Look, weight loss resistance, I coined the term “toxin-induced weight loss resistance” meaning I don’t care how good you eat. I don’t care how much you exercise. You’re looking down going, “I can’t get rid of this fat right here on my waist or my thighs or whatever it is.” That is toxic-induced weight loss resistance.
Trina Felber: So before I get to what the solution … like you … you have a great solution for this problem we’re defining as toxic cells, but I have a questions about like … is there a certain age that someone should start to be concerned about this or is this something that we need to look at like detoxing our kids, or like is there an age bra … ’cause you don’t know … like we, I know you, me, as you start to age, symptoms and things show up like the mental, the fog or the energy and you just poo poo it.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah.
Trina Felber: But what’s really happening is things are building up. So is there a certain age that we really should be on target and say, “you’re 16 years old, let’s get you tested,” or …
Dr. Pompa: Look, I started my kids obviously, you know, very very young. I mean they were babies and we were giving ’em drops, I mean that’s …
Trina Felber: Okay good.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, yeah. I mean because from the womb to the tomb, that’s the whole point, right? I mean my kids were filled with lead because of their mother. All of my kids know how to do cellular detox and they’ve all been through it. I mean 100 percent of them and I have five. So matter of fact, and I have to say this, you know we adopted two of those who lost their parents at age seven. The boy, it’s a boy and girl, they’re twins, and he was on the Autism Spectrum and sensory [inaudible 00:23:48], Asperger’s, you know not functioning well. If you met him today, you’d be amazed and you know he’s doing cellular detox even to this day.
Trina Felber: Oh my gosh that is so amaze … that is so powerful to just know that something can actually transform a life. Like I know you have, but even at that young age where they’re on trajectory to be something else, if you intercept that with healing, they’ve got … he’s got a completely different trajectory.
Dr. Pompa: My son, actually, who just walked by, he tells me all the time, “Dad, you have no idea. All of my friends are sick. Most of them are on medications.” I mean ridiculous. I mean so you have a group of kids who just to bring their brain down, they’re smoking marijuana and to bring their brains up to focus, they’re taking Adderall. I mean it’s like these kids are buying Adderall from each other just because they can’t focus you know, and then they can’t sleep so they’re using marijuana. I mean, I’m telling ya, I fear for this generation. It’s a toxic generation. My son said, “Dad, they’re all toxic.” You know, he knows what it looks like, right? I mean there’s something in the eyes, there’s something in the kids that you just see it.
Trina Felber: And it’s just because we’re so in tune to the fact that there’s really no solution, but that’s where I wanna get to you. So we’ve defined the problem. It doesn’t matter how … really if you’ve done detoxes, you probably haven’t completely detoxed yourself. So, I want to talk to everybody. I want you to talk about, I have mine here, I actually carry it where’s the …
Dr. Pompa: CytoDetox, yep.
Trina Felber: CytoDetox. I want you to tell everybody what CytoDetox is and how it is such an amazing solution ’cause it gets to the cell.
Dr. Pompa: You know, I think you have the toxicity quiz, which you know, by the way we were talking about symptoms. That quiz, that you’ll have on your page there, that was put together … I trained doctors around the country. So that is a … we’re looking at a certain set of symptoms for neurotoxicity and that will lead you, actually, even to more information about that product. That’s why it triggered in my mind.
Trina Felber: Yeah and just so everybody knows, we will post the link to that quiz. If anybody wants to go to it, it is toxinscore.com. So if anybody’s watching live, toxincscore.com and you can take the quiz and it will tell you your … give you a toxin score. So talk about …
Dr. Pompa: Yeah and it’s free, but it will tell you … I think there’s a link there to that product too. But anyway, so look. I don’t ever want to make detox be about one product, right? I mean that product there was a huge breakthrough for cellular detox, there’s no doubt. So but when I teach it, look, we have to … there’s a lot that goes on in the cell but where most detox fails is a true binder and that’s what that product is, meaning that we … cilantro, corella, plant steriles … I can go down the list of all these things that people use and they’re in all the products, right? You know they may not be bad, but it doesn’t work for things like heavy metals as we talked about or biotoxins. For mold, Lyme Disease, those are very difficult toxins to bind, so we have to use a real binder that holds on and doesn’t let go because cilantro for example, I was taking that when I said, “Oh that helps get metal out of the brain.” You know, I almost lost my mind literally. My wife thought she was going to have to check me into an insane asylum. People get injured by that stuff.
Corella, you know it can bind certain chemicals, but heavy metals? It’s a weak bind. You know you have to have something that is able to hold on and not let go. CytoDetox does a few amazing things. I said the problem is the cell, so now I’m gonna bring my cell back up, right? These membranes out here are where a lot of the toxins reside and then I lost my pen, right? That’s not working so I can’t draw a mitochondria, but imagine there would be a mitochondria. That membrane, the toxins make their way and interfere with that membrane as well. And by the way, that’s a big deal. When these membranes are inflamed, you can’t get good stuff in your cell and bad stuff out. When that mitochondrial membrane gets toxins that drive inflammation, you don’t make normal energy. That’s where you make energy. So I mean everything shuts down.
So that CytoDetox has the ability to cross into these membranes and grab these toxins and make sure that they make their way all the way out of the body. So that’s the importance of using something that’s a real binder that doesn’t let go because many of those herbals, they’re weak binders, so, I love to give the analogy of the street cleaners. I used to say like do these things even exist anymore? Then I move here to [inaudible 00:28:44] and I see these things all the time now so it’s funny.
Trina Felber: I remember them.
Dr. Pompa: Our tax dollars that, you drive behind ’em and it’s like you see the dust cloud going out and you even see like cups being moved to the side like do these things actually even do anything? Anyway, so that’s what these weak binders do there, they kind of bring, they circulate the toxins and they end up circulating back down somewhere else and the danger is, a lot of ’em can actually cross the blood/brain barrier and then it’s even worse. So we have to use real binders. CytoDetox is a real binder. It was literally a game changer of cellular detox because we were able now, when we upregular the cell function, now we have something that holds onto these toxins and brings it out of the body.
Trina Felber: And it’s amazing, I mean, I carry this with me and it’s about 20 drops. I do a little squirt and it goes right under my tongue.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, yeah and it’s going right into those tissues, yep.
Trina Felber: And it’s going … and I don’t know if anybody knows, this is the nurse in me that has to explain this, this is like a sublingual absorption so it doesn’t have to go to your stomach. You literally absorb it right through your membranes and it starts to work right away and going directly into the cell affects the toxins internally inside that cell. I just want everyone to understand because not all things do that and if you have toxins that are hiding, like he said, from the womb of your mother inside your cell there’s not really good solutions out there. Going in buying something off the shelf might detox your tissues, but it’s not going to get into the cells because of those toxins on top of the cell holding onto the cell not letting things through. So what this does, is actually gets in the cell and helps to release those toxins out of the cell so your mitochondria and all of the structures inside of the cell, including your DNA, ribosomes, all that, can actually heal, produce new healthy cells, and function normally and have a normal life span. Is that correct?
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, that is correct and you know, it doesn’t let go, right, so that’s the key because again, a lot of these things bind and then they end up just letting go for different minerals, et cetera, and that’s a problem. You know that creates redistribution. And again, when they go to my site, you’ll see. I mean I have a whole system, but that product was absolutely a game changer.
Trina Felber: Yeah so if anybody is interested in learning more, checking out, and actually doing a cell detox, a true cell detox, and this isn’t to say stop doing any other detoxes, ’cause I still do other detoxes along with it, but this is gonna clean out … this is basically gonna clean out your cells. It’s like a vacuum cleaner for your cells, right?
Dr. Pompa: Oh exactly, and it crosses the blood/brain barrier, you know, which I made the point earlier that that’s really why people don’t [inaudible 00:31:35] well.
Trina Felber: Right and a quick question about that, how about pregnancy? Can women still take this during pregnancy or it advisable to not do it during pregnancy?
Dr. Pompa: Look, I would have to advise not ever to do any detox during pregnancy, right? Because God forbid you stir it up and then it ends up pulling in utero, et cetera, so we just, we kinda let that one alone.
Trina Felber: Yeah, yeah, yeah. And most people do, I just wanted … I know that I’m going to have pregnant women and the next question we’re gonna get is “Can I take it while… ” ‘Cause everybody gets excited about this stuff because nobody thinks about the cells and we think about detox, I know a lot of my audience does detoxing, I know that, but do they really detox their selves? And they’re all out there going, “No. I didn’t know I should.” So they’re all gonna jump on this and a lot of my … you know, you’ve got pregnant women everywhere, so that’s gonna be the question. So after pregnancy, but breast feeding is probably okay I’m assuming? Or would you even …
Dr. Pompa: Again, just to go with the standard medical [inaudible 00:32:36] you really shouldn’t do any detox during nursing as well. However, I can tell ya that it’s been a game changer for certain babies that have certain things …
Trina Felber: Now can you … kids? Like is this what you give your kids?
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, no. My kids all take it. Matter of fact I was just in my son’s car, you know, and there’s the CytoDetox, right so …
Trina Felber: So what age, ’cause my kids would take it. So how young would you, could you?
Dr. Pompa: Yeah no I mean honestly, because it’s a liquid, you can give it to very young kids. Obviously people give it to babies. I can’t make those recommendations, right? People have to work with their practitioner …
Trina Felber: Disclaimer, disclaimer. Don’t anybody like …
Dr. Pompa: Yeah work with your doctor or practitioner on that, but I can just tell you people do it. But also I wanna state this, you know you want to cycle that. It’s not a product you necessarily have to stay on all the time because detox is cycled, right? A woman’s cycle is a detox cycle, right? It happens seven days of the month. You know you can do three days on, and I always like a minimum of three days, four days off. You know you can do seven on, seven off. You can … four days on, ten days off. I mean cycling with detox is really important so that’s in … By the way, when we go up to Napa Valley, I always take that stuff because you’re gonna get [inaudible 00:33:55] glyphosate in the wine and my doctor [inaudible 00:33:55] dripping it into their wine. I’m like, “Guys, don’t ruin your good wine.” But it works. It binds glyphosate and sulfites too, by the way.
Trina Felber: Oh my gosh! That’s so funny! Okay! Did everybody just hear that?
Dr. Pompa: It’s better just to keep it in your body. That way you don’t ruin your wine, but you know, people use it for that.
Trina Felber: I don’t know if that would ruin your wine. I actually think that probably makes it better like …
Dr. Pompa: No I meant from a taste standpoint [inaudible 00:34:19] so a winer like I am, you know, it’s like “I don’t want to mess up my wine taste.”
Trina Felber: Right. All right. So I want to reiterate they can find the toxicity score, or your what do you want to call it?
Dr. Pompa: It’s a quiz.
Trina Felber: The quiz, the quiz … at toxinscore.com. They can find you because you’re a wealth of information, not just about this, but if anybody wants to follow Dr. Pompa. I know you’ve done water detoxes, you’ve done a lot of teaching, I’ve done two of your water detoxes, so …
Dr. Pompa: Yeah we took over 2500 people through …
Trina Felber: I was one of them!
Dr. Pompa: … a five day water fast on my Facebook.
Trina Felber: And I just told them, I just finished my second five day water detox so the first one was three months ago. So you’re gonna be doing another one in the spring, and I’m hoping actually to bring you back here with me so you can teach and we can do a podcast just about water fasting, because it’s an incredible healing spiritual experience so …
Dr. Pompa: I love it. I love the topic you know, because again water fasting’s amazing, you know? Every culture was, you know, forced to do it, you know? Not today, you know, but amazing healing occurs. You’re relying on the body’s innate intelligence, you know, massively. So part of what I teach my docs is the cellular healing and the cellular detox. However, a lot of it, the fasting, and we have multiple ways we fast. It’s part of my mulit-therapeutic approach.
Trina Felber: Yeah. So you have a wealth of information so … And i know my audience is … they will love you. That’s why I wanted to bring you on. Especially with your CytoDetox. It’s so important to heal from the inside because otherwise things don’t necessarily in the long term matter. You can feed yourself good food, healthy organic food, but if you’re not like you said, getting to the root cause, you can take a pill to get rid of the symptoms but really are you getting rid of the problem? And the problem could be as simple as detoxing your cells out. Things can possibly heal and go away or you’ve got the best chance at healing.
So I totally respect and appreciate what you’ve taught, what you know, what you bring to us and I want everyone to know that they can find you at drpompa.com.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah D-r. D-r no dot. It’s D-r and then p-o-m-p-a .com.
Trina Felber: .com and then your show is cellularhealingtvpodcast.drpompa.com ’cause you’ve got a lot of teaching, a lot of education, and a lot of experience with that. And then if anyone wants to join us for the water fast …
Dr. Pompa: Yeah.
Trina Felber: It’s gonna be fun.
Dr. Pompa: Our goal is this spring, a million people fasting.
Trina Felber: We’re gonna get it.
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, we’re gonna get it.
Trina Felber: So is there a way that like if they’re watching this, can they go and sign up and be prepared? Are you going to be doing some teaching ahead of time? So where do they go for that?
Dr. Pompa: Yeah you can just go to my fan page on my Facebook which it’s D-R-.-, not to be confused because my website’s just d-r-p-o-m-p-a.com, but it’s D-R. DanielPompa. So D-R.DanielPompa. That’s my Facebook fan page. When you go there, if you go to videos, you’ll see all the videos we did throughout that fast. There’s probably about eight of them so just scroll down and you’ll see day one. But even a few videos before day one are actually relevant so watch those as well.
Trina Felber: It’s amazing to watch those videos. I’m telling you, you just one or two and you’re on board. You’re like, “When can I start my fast? I’m gonna do it.” So I really highly recommend everybody look into the water fast. Do it with us in the spring when we do it. We’re gonna do a million people. I know we will. I know you will, and then don’t forget to take your quiz at toxinscore.com. Really important for everyone to know at all ages just how toxic you are and not by nature, really. So … anything else you want to bring up or add before we end this?
Dr. Pompa: Yeah, no I did think you brought up a really good point. You know, I got sick eating a perfect diet and exercising and that’s what’s happening to people today, right? So I still eat a perfect diet. I’m a believer. I talk about it, I teach diet, but the reason you don’t feel well is it’s a cellular issue. It’s a toxic cellular issue. You know, toxin-induced hormone resistance, you know, is an epidemic. Toxin-induced weight loss resistance, I mean, all of it, fix the cell to get well.
Trina Felber: And you know, I’ve also done some talks, like I’ve done some talks as well about like how we’re exposed. Like you think you’re eating healthy and you’re doing things … like even the rain water has toxins in it, even our tap water. So you may have a whole house, like I have a whole house water purification system, but when you go out to dinner and you order an iced tea that’s brewed there, you don’t know what kind of water … Coffee? When you’re drinking coffee, you have no idea if they’re purifying the water, so when you’re exposed … you’re exposed on a daily basis to things that you don’t know even know. Even buying like aluminum … like the foods that are in aluminum cans, things like that. So there’s exposure not just with vaccines, but throughout. So just … yeah. So you might feel like you’re healthy in your practices, but it’s the things that we don’t think about out here on a daily basis that keep bombarding us and that’s that buildup that you talked about that really we need to get rid of. So I appreciate. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Dr. Pompa: You got it. Glad to be here and we’ll talk about fasting next time.
Trina Felber: We will. All right. Thanks Dr. Pompa, have a great day.
Dr. Pompa: You’re welcome. Thank you.
Trina Felber: Thanks for watching. Make sure you subscribe to keep learning how to create your healthy self. See you next time.
