We at Biologix Center for Optimum Health want to take a moment to address the recent train derailment and resulting toxic chemical fire in East Palestine, Ohio. We know that this event has caused significant harm to many people and their communities, and we want to express our deepest sympathies and support for those affected.

Some sources are reporting that the incident caused a toxic cloud event that is dropping extremely toxic dioxins across a large area of residential housing and farmland in Ohio, and across the northeast US. Eric Coppolino, a dioxin investigator and journalist, has called for the immediate, total evacuation of East Palestine due to the dioxin fallout now taking place there.

What is Dioxin

Dioxin is a highly toxic and persistent chemical that is commonly referred to as a “forever chemical” because of its ability to remain in the environment for an extended period. It is a byproduct of industrial processes, such as the manufacturing of pesticides and herbicides, as well as the production of paper, pulp, and plastic.

Dioxin is a known human carcinogen and has been linked to a range of health problems, including developmental and reproductive issues, immune system damage, and endocrine disruption. Exposure to dioxin can occur through various means, including inhalation, ingestion, and skin contact.

If large amounts of dioxin were dispersed into the atmosphere over the eastern United States, the implications could be severe. Dioxin is not only toxic but also highly persistent, meaning that it would remain in the environment for a long time, causing damage and posing a significant risk to human health.

Chronic Illness & Dioxin Detox

As a center focused on treating chronic illness, we understand the importance of addressing the health implications of such disasters, especially for those who are already suffering from chronic illnesses. People who suffer from chronic illnesses can be more sensitive to toxicity and be even more severely affected than others. This is because their bodies may already be dealing with a heavy toxic burden, and any additional exposure can exacerbate their symptoms. It is even more important that those with chronic illnesses take reasonable precautions to avoid exposure to toxins. We are committed to providing education and solutions to help people heal from chemical exposure and preventatively protect themselves from it.

How to Detox from Dioxin

It is important to consider detoxification methods to help reduce the impact on your health. The best way to prevent dioxin toxicity is to limit exposure, but if you have been exposed to dioxin, there are ways to detoxify your body. In this article, we will discuss some effective ways to detox from dioxin, including dietary changes, supplements, and purified water.


Diet plays a crucial role in the body’s natural detoxification process, and there are certain foods that can help remove dioxin from the body. Here are some foods that have been found to be effective in reducing dioxin levels:

Green tea: Green tea contains catechins, which are powerful antioxidants that can help eliminate dioxin from the body. Catechins have been found to stimulate liver function, which is important for the detoxification process.

Black tea: Black tea also contains antioxidants that can help eliminate dioxin from the body. Drinking black tea regularly has been found to reduce dioxin levels in the blood.

Seaweed: Seaweed contains a variety of minerals and antioxidants that can help eliminate toxins from the body. Seaweed has been found to be particularly effective in removing heavy metals, which can often be found in conjunction with dioxin exposure.

Cruciferous vegetables: Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage contain sulfur compounds that can help the body eliminate toxins, including dioxin. These vegetables also contain high levels of fiber, which can help promote regular bowel movements and eliminate toxins from the body.

Whenever you’re shopping for veggies, keep in mind the “dirty dozen” list of fruits and vegetables that tend to contain unsafe levels of toxins from sources such as pesticides, and be sure to buy organic and locally grown produce when possible.

Sprouts: Sprouts of various types, including broccoli sprouts, have been found to be a powerful tool in detoxification. Sprouts are young plants that have just started to grow and are harvested just a few days after germination. They are packed with nutrients and enzymes that can help support the body’s detoxification processes.

Broccoli sprouts, in particular, have been found to contain high levels of sulforaphane, a compound that can help the liver eliminate toxins. Sulforaphane has been found to stimulate the production of enzymes that can help break down and eliminate harmful chemicals such as dioxin.

In addition to broccoli sprouts, other types of sprouts, such as alfalfa, clover, and radish, can also help with detoxification. These sprouts are a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, which can help protect the body against free radical damage and promote the elimination of toxins.

Sprouts are also easy to grow at home and can be added to a variety of dishes, such as salads, sandwiches, and smoothies. They can be grown indoors year-round and are a convenient and cost-effective way to add more nutrients to your diet.


In addition to dietary changes, certain supplements can also help the body eliminate dioxin. Here are two supplements that have been found to be effective in reducing dioxin levels:

Chlorella: Chlorella is a type of green algae that has been found to bind to dioxin and eliminate it from the body. Chlorella is also a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making it a great addition to any detox regimen.

Turmeric: Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin, which has been found to have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin has been shown to enhance liver function and help the body eliminate toxins such as dioxin.

Quicksilver Scientific Ultra Binder: Mobilizes toxins for removal with a unique liver support elixir. This potent blend of bitters and detoxifying phytonutrients is designed to support bile flow and digestion, delivered in a fast-acting liposomal form.

Neuro-Antitox II CNS/PNS: for those suffering primarily from problems in the brain, meninges, and peripheral nerves from Lyme toxins and heavy metals. Indications include, but are not limited to – cognitive disturbances, dizziness, and vertigo, disturbances in vision, neuritis, neuralgia, numbness, palsies, and headaches.

Purified Water

In addition to these foods, we also recommend that people filter their water to avoid exposure to harmful toxins. Dioxin and other chemicals can be found in drinking water and can also be absorbed through the skin when bathing or showering. It is critical to have pure water for effective detoxification.

There are many water filtration options available, but it is important to choose a high-quality system that removes a wide range of contaminants, including dioxin. Some of the best water filtration systems include activated carbon filters, reverse osmosis systems, and distillation units. We recommend doing your research and choosing a reputable brand that is certified to remove contaminants.


In conclusion, if you have been exposed to dioxin, it is important to take steps to detoxify your body. This can include dietary changes such as consuming green tea, black tea, cruciferous vegetables, and seaweed, as well as taking supplements such as chlorella and turmeric. Drinking purified water is also essential for removing toxins from the body. By implementing these strategies, you can help your body eliminate dioxin and improve your overall health and well-being.
