Detoxification


 

What is Detoxification?

Detoxification is the elimination of toxins from the body that we are exposed to externally from the environmental sources and internally from products generated by daily cellular processes. Your liver is the main player in detoxification. The products are designed to give this organ, as well as other tissues, nutritional support for the detoxification process.

 

Why do I need to detoxify my body?

We are all exposed to toxins in the foods we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink. Our body produces toxins not only in the process of digestion and elimination, but also when we are dealing with stress. The goal is a cleansing, regenerating process that nutritionally supports your body’s overloaded or compromised detoxification systems, allowing them to begin functioning more proficiently.

 

How long do I need to remain on the Detox?

Length of detoxification matters on each individuals health goals. People usually experience benefits within 4 weeks of following the program. Together, you and your healthcare practitioner can decide to continue program as is, or to modify the program for a longer period of time.

 

What is the purpose of taking Apple Cider Vinegar?

Apple Cider Vinegar helps stimulate circulation and support detoxification in the liver. The unique acids in apple cider vinegar combine to the toxins to help the body eliminate the toxins more effectively.

 

Can I take my daily supplements along with Detoxification?

IV Nutritional Therapy


 

Why IV Nutritional Therapy?

Majority of patients who are ill have significant nutritional deficiencies, especially as they get older. There are many reasons but one of the most significant is food sensitization. They have considerable intestinal irritation on a cellular level. They may develop malabsorption secondary to gut irritation at some level. IV therapy is the way to begin some patients on the road to recovery.

 

Are nutritional supplements just as efficient?
