My mom died from pancreatic cancer five years ago this month. Since that time, I’ve been on a mission to learn about cancer causes - and prevention. Her mom died at age 42 from liver cancer too. I’ve learned about the MTHFR gene polymorphism, which is basically an impaired detoxification system. About 40% of Americans have this genetic anomaly.

Two major components seem to be associated with cancers and many other chronic diseases: nutrient deficiencies and toxin overload. Throw in the MTHFR gene plus our current chemical industries, and we end up with a lot of unnecessary health issues. So, I’ve created “The Safe Detox Protocol” guidebook. The ebook launches this month, in honor of my mom. I hope you will help me to promote it – to educate as many people as we can.

Thank you,

Pat Robinson

The Safe Detox Protocol ebook provides practical, natural and supportive healing techniques. Start on the path toward holistic wellness ~ wherever you are along the journey.

Improve your health environment and increase awareness of the toxic elements that you can avoid.

  • Pat Robinson has 30 years of health care experience. She was a critical care nurse for 17 years, working with open-heart surgery patients and end-stage disease in the intensive care units. She began researching natural health alternatives while pregnant in 2000.

    She researched the medical studies about the benefits and risks of medical interventions. She viewed the toxins in pharmaceuticals differently, when it was her son. After reading the actual medical research studies, rather than relying upon what she was taught within the medical industry, she left her license behind.
  • Now, Pat empowers families to use the wisdom of traditional foods and natural healing. Pat is passionate about sharing the amazing power of the body to heal itself, when provided with a healthy environment and energized nourishment!  She has created a huge community as a holistic researcher and patient advocate at Heal Thyself!
  • During the past 13 years, Pat has invested over 10,000 hours learning about natural alternatives, reading hundreds and hundreds of medical research studies, and assisting thousands of people about holistic health issues. She has studied food labels, product ingredients, home toxins, detox diets, biochemistry, nutrition, physiology, pharmacology, herbalism, alternative health, etc. She had no idea about the quantity of toxins in our food, air, water, medications and environment.


Pat's family had adrenal fatigue, allergies, asthma, candida, chronic sinus infections, damaged immune system, eczema rashes, food intolerances, gut imbalances, daily headaches, endometriosis, hormone imbalances and multiple chemical sensitivity before she embraced natural health and wellness. They are exceptionally healthy and thriving - needing neither prescriptions nor over-the-counter pharmaceuticals in the 13 years since her son was born.

  • Nature is an amazing healer!

The Safe Detox Protocol is an introduction to natural healing.

  • Learn to support and optimize your body’s detoxification function.
  • Even if you just add ONE healthy thing each week consistently, you will be working toward health.

If I were to select four Top Priorities to improve detoxification, they would be: probiotics, minerals, improve stomach acid, and toxin awareness.

Toxins, Toxins, Everywhere ~ Heal Thyself!

I had a toxin-filled childhood.

Did you?

  • We are all exposed to toxins in the air we breathe, water we drink and products we use. Our health depends in a large part on how well or how poorly our body is able to neutralize and remove toxins.

My Adrenals Were Stressed

I figure my adrenals were stressed by age 12, as I needed a nap every afternoon by then. My mood would flare to anger quickly, and irritability was “normal”. I had brittle hair and nails, acne, oily skin, body odor, severe menstrual cramps, ear infections, fatigue and daily headaches – for years.

  • Cleaning products – 85,000 chemicals untested for safety have been introduced to America’s marketplace, over70% are found in everyday cleaners. With known carcinogens, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and phosphates, these cleaning products can cause eczema, airway irritation, eye irritation, allergies, and poisoning and unknown health effects. All of these chemicals must be detoxified by our liver.

Symptoms of overwhelmed toxin load:

  • Cancer
  • Chills or fever
  • Coughing, wheezing and shortness of breathe
  • Depression
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Eye, ear, nose or throat irritation
  • Hair loss
  • Headache
  • Infertility in women and men
  • Liver disease
  • Nausea
  • Neurological dysfunction, such as loss of memory or concentration, or confusion, “brain-fog”
  • Skin rash
  • Weakness or fatigue


Did I mention that we were sick all the time?

Multiple times a year, our family would have strep throat, tonsillitis, “chronic bronchitis”, sinus and ear infections. I must have averaged 2-3 rounds of antibiotics every year for 20 years. No, we didn’t eat any whole food probiotics. Yes, we all had candida, thrush, yeast and fungal infections. According to the Mayo Clinic, 96% of all chronic sinus infections are fungal. And antibiotics only make them worse. <sigh>

  • We overlooked, ignored or suppressed the cause of the symptoms, instead we used more chemicals! Of course, the environmental chemicals and synthetic food chemicals had side-effects. So, we ‘needed’ more over-the-counter chemicals to suppress the symptoms of the chemical side-effects.

    And eventually we would “need” pharmaceutical-grade chemicals to suppress the symptoms of the environmental chemical side-effects.  This is not health care. It is sick care. The synthetic chemicals were making us sick!

  • Insensibly, we were prescribed stronger chemicals which also made us sick.

Our family has a long history of health issues:

  • allergies
  • arthritis
  • cancers
  • cardiovascular diseases
  • diabetes
  • digestion upset
  • eczema
  • gynecological disorders
  • hypertension
  • mental health disorders
  • reflux
  • thyroid imbalance

and Mercury too...

And I had many cavities at an early age (nutrient deficiencies). I had colic and wasn’t breastfed beyond a few weeks. Over the years, I received more and more mercury (silver amalgam) fillings.

I still have 10 mercury fillings in my mouth. It is no wonder I had a weakened immune system and that strep throat, antibiotics, steroids and respiratory complications repeatedly recurred.

Sound familiar?


  • Now, we keep NONE of those chemical products in our home.

    We eat nutrient-dense, whole foods and homemade probiotics, and we avoid chemical additives in foods.

  • We have not needed any anti-histamines, antibiotics, analgesics, steroids, or cough suppressants or other over-the-counter medication in over 13 years.

    My husband no longer qualifies for an asthma diagnosis. He has not needed the “every four hours” prescription inhalers AT ALL for over eight years!

    I am continuously working to heal myself and want to share the health research and practical health hints which I have learned out of necessity. You too can begin to heal thyself!

The Safe Detox Protocol for only



Detox 101

I am not intending to cover all of the biochemistry related to detoxification. Suffice to say that most of our toxin exposure is self-induced and thus avoidable.

The liver is one of the most important organs in the body when it comes to detoxifying or getting rid of foreign substances or toxins. To put it simply, the liver converts a toxic chemical into a less harmful chemical.

  • We can optimize our natural detoxification pathways and support our ability to detoxify effectively.
  • It is necessary to address nutrient deficiencies to open the detox pathways. There are essential nutrients which help the body to optimize detoxification naturally.  

  • MAGNESIUM, B3, B6, B12, folate, zinc and SELENIUM are key nutrients. Additionally, molybdenum and sulfate support different detox pathways. Food sources of vitamin C are important.

  • Some 90% of Americans are deficient in magnesium. Magnesium is critical to over 300 biological processes, especially detoxification. 

MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase )

Some of us (40% of Americans) have a genetic anomaly called the MTHFR gene polymorphism, which is basically an impaired detoxification system.

  • The FDA’s mandatory fortification of processed foods with synthetic folic acid started in 1998. Unfortunately, people with the MTHFR gene have worse detoxification when they consume synthetic folic acid! 

Many pharmaceuticals drugs decrease folate levels in the body - further impairing detoxification:

  • antacids
  • H2 blockers
  • proton pump inhibitors
  • nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • birth control pills
  • anticonvulsants
  • cholesterol-lowering medications
  • Methotrexate
  • some antibiotics
  • many other medications

The Safe Detox Protocol discusses:

  • Breastfeeding and Detox?
  • How the Liver Detoxifies
  • Toxin lists: environmental, food, body care products, air toxins, heavy metals, etc.
  • Foods to help Phase 1 and Phase 2 Detoxification
  • Candida and Cleanses

Safe detoxification is an issue of striking the balance where we are optimizing our ability to excrete toxins without just moving them around. I believe that whole food is the best healer.

  • Nutrient deficiencies lead to excess toxin build up.
  • Detoxification is additional stress on the body and increases nutrient demands.


  • Necessary Nutrients and REAL food sources to detox safely
  • What to ADD, What to AVOID, What to Choose, instead.
  • Adrenal challenges
  • Clear, easy to follow guidelines
  • Resources
