Heavy metals (lead, mercury, etc.) and chemicals (pesticides, solvents, etc) have become increasingly present in our air, water, soil and food supply. Single instances of high exposure are rare; however, long term exposure to lower levels of these toxins (and exposure to multiple toxins) can become quit problematic. In our modern society, the human body is exposed to a heavy burden of foreign substances with which it is required to detoxify and eliminate. Over-the-counter and prescription drugs, caffeine, alcohol and fast food complicate the matter further, taxing your body beyond its natural capabilities of detoxification.
An effective detoxification program addresses the two major detoxification pathways in the body: the gut and the liver. Our detoxification program involves using one of several medical foods, supplements or other nutritional products in conjunction with a specially designed dietary plan. You will also meet with the doctor to ensure a safe and easy transition into the program.
