Most of us are continually exposed to many toxins both in the outside environment and or in our homes. Toxins can accumulate slowly thru the year, and eventually cause symptoms or symptoms can appear suddenly.
Since WW II there are many new synthetic materials which are being released into the environment. The exposure to these chemicals occurs already in the fetus while at the mother’s womb.
There are recent studies that found many chemicals in the umbilical cord. Even though they have been found in breast milk. As we can see, our efforts to detoxify ourselves should start way before we have symptoms, and in women way before pregnancy is even being considered.
We see a major surge in chronic illnesses in children –asthma, cancer, birth defects, neurodevelopmental disorders, obesity and diabetes are on the rise. Also in adults, very similar trends are being seen.
The top 10 environmental toxins are: chloroform, chlorine, polychlorinated biphenyl, pesticides, mold and other fungal toxins, phthalates, volatile organic compounds, radiation, electromagnetic fields, heavy metals.
There are many ways we can detoxify, but if not done properly this will make you feel even worse. Before any detoxification program starts, we need to make sure organs and systems of elimination are intact. If not, you will overwhelm your body from toxins.
The routes of elimination are: liver, gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, bladder, lymphatic system, skin, and respiratory system. The way we approach detoxification is by first realizing the potential underlying toxicity as root cause of many problems, and then customize the program based on one’s needs.
We offer homeopathic gentle detox or more conventional programs which can last from 10 days to 6 weeks depending on individual needs.
If you feel you might have a toxicity problem, you can contact us for a thorough evaluation and treatment.
