The word “detoxification” stirs up alls sorts of reactions. It’s considered to be everything from a “myth” or “mass delusion” to a spiritual or vital therapy. Medically, detoxification is viewed as only a withdrawal method for people with drug or alcohol dependency. But detoxification is a healing strategy for the rest of us—particularly if we suffer with chronic pain, fatigue, allergies, intolerances, immune disorders, musculoskeletal problems, digestive distress, cancer, or any other disorder.
Our bodies naturally go through regular cycles of detoxification. The primary systems involved are: lymphatic, liver, digestive tract, urinary, respiratory, and skin. They work together to neutralize and eliminate wastes and potentially harmful substances that come from both outside and inside. Sadly, each one of us now carries a toxic soup—our individual body burden—due to the ubiquitous presence of noxious chemical substances. Studies now show that 100% of adults have synthetic and industrial chemicals, like dioxins and PCBs, stored in their bodies. There are also heavy metals (such as lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic), pesticides, pollutants, TCDD, drugs, chemicals from plastics, sodium fluoride, food additives, and too many others to list. The body stores what it can’t get rid of and eventually has symptoms. Our food, water, and air are contaminated, disrupting Nature’s fabric and our connection to its healing properties.
Studies show that diet and environment cause up to 95% of cancers and most other modern degenerative diseases. Once environmental toxins are locked in human bodies, no one can guess what diseases they might trigger in each person. Detoxification methods include diets, colon cleansing, liver flushes, massage and saunas’, exercise and sleep. We detox the body for specific heavy metals in our office with the use of homeopathic remedies, lasers, nutritionals, and foot baths. A general detox is good but if you can detox specific metals it is even better. Call us to find out more about how we can help you clean your body in the new year.
