CLINICAL DETOXIFICATION

Your body is exposed to a wide variety of toxins on a daily basis. If you cannot effectively remove these from your body, they will accumulate over time. Toxins are heavily involved with many chronic degenerative diseases

Detoxification programs are essential – whether you are trying to heal a chronic condition or maintain good health. This is usually one of the first steps in our Harmonic Health Program

Your body is designed to efficiently remove toxins. The main organ of detoxification is the liver which converts and processes toxins to be excreted via the elimination organs – bowel, kidneys, lungs, skin and lymphatic system.

Unfortunately in today’s age, we have increased toxic exposure from exotoxins (from outside the body) and endotoxins (from within the body). This adds a massive load on these organs. As time passes, your detoxification and elimination organs start to become compromised and cannot perform their function properly.

Exotoxins – air pollutants, food additives, agricultural chemicals, drugs, cosmetics, infections, airborne allergens, food allergens

Endotoxins – bacterial and fungal by-products, hormone overload, increased free radicals, toxic metabolic by-products, immune complexes from food allergies, toxic emotions

The Barrel Effect

Think of your body like a barrel. The barrel has a certain amount of room to hold toxins before it starts to overflows. The total load that fills the barrel consists of: past and present physical, chemical, and biological contaminants found in food, air, water, products, and the environment, as well as the emotional state of the individual. All of these factors (environmental, dietary, genetic, and emotional/psychological) accumulate over time and have an effect on your health.

As they are piled on day after day, your barrel begins to fill up faster than you can empty it. Your body slowly becomes overwhelmed. Your barrel begins to “spill over” and this manifests as health problems. These health problems will differ from person to person.

The key areas that are usually affected include:

  • Central Nervous System (CNS) issues
  • Respiratory and mucosal irritations
  • GI problems
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Reproductive/ Hormonal/Glandular Imbalances
  • Chronic, systemic inflammation

The symptoms related to these health issues are usually treated with drugs and medication. While you might gain symptomatic relief, the toxins are actually being suppressed and driven deeper into the body. This is the progression of what is commonly known as chronic degenerative disease.

Through natural, non-toxic detoxification therapies, we are able to lighten the toxic load on the body and strengthen the terrain – we must drain the barrel.

Useful functional lab tests to detect toxins include:

  • Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis – internal pathogens and infection
  • GPL Tox – comprehensive toxicology test that looks at close to 200 toxins
  • Glyphosate (Round Up) testing
  • Heavy Metals testing
  • DUTCH Test – comprehensive hormone testing

Once we get a clearer picture of what toxins might be present and how they are affecting you, personalized functional medicine and lifestyle programs can then integrate the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes along with customized supplementation to remove toxins and restore balance to affected systems
