1. You can tell from symptoms what toxins you have, and you can also tell from a variety of tests, most of which are totally painless and non-invasive. A blood test is the least pleasant. The easiest is muscle testing, but it requires some training. One of the most accurate and completely pain-free is hair testing which involves you cutting off a couple pieces of hair and sending them to a lab.

2. Essentially, there is no pain involved, and if you choose hair testing, you can do everything from home.
