Detoxification

Detoxification is a normal function that our bodies carry out everyday; it allows us to process the toxic substances we encounter in our world and eliminate them. The liver, colon and kidneys are the primary organs of elimination; they require vitamins and minerals to carry out their job. When the quantity of toxic material in our world is so large, our detoxification system becomes overloaded; this impairs proper functioning of these basic systems of elimination which leads to further accumulation of toxins.

Also, when the toxic burden increases there is impaired absorption of minerals that support detoxification which further exacerbates the situation. Fatigue, hair loss, skin irritations, headaches, poor memory, irritability, digestive problems, asthma, chemical sensitivities and unhealthy skin and nail are examples of some of the symptoms associated with environmental toxins. Detoxification can help with fatigue, headaches, chronic skin problems and digestive problems. It can improve memory, increase mental clarity and help with weight loss. Most people notice an enhanced vitality and significant improvements in their overall quality of life.

Detoxification Programs usually consist of the following:

  • Dietary modifications to reduce intake of toxic substances and to increase intake of vitamins and minerals that facilitate detoxification and elimination.
  • Herbal supplements and targeted nutraceuticals to improve detoxification and elimination by the liver, colon, kidneys, lungs, lymphatics, and skin.
  • Hydrotherapy and Massage to support the body during the detoxification process.
  • Our programs are always individually designed for each patient based on their medical history and personal goals.
