Detoxing to Flush Endocrine-disrupting Chemicals from Your Body

Detoxification Tampa FLConsider for a moment the number of chemicals found in everyday consumer products and how they might have a negative effect on your health. It’s time to look for detoxification treatment provider in Tampa, FL.

Especially those chemicals that exceed your body’s ability to eliminate them on its own.

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are chemical compounds found in many consumer products that mimic, block, or interfere with the hormones in the body’s endocrine system.

These chemicals have been linked to many adverse health conditions, including congenital disabilities, tumors, reproductive issues, obesity, fatigue, cognitive impairment, and more. Of course, reducing one’s exposure to these chemicals is an important first step.

However, because these chemicals are so pervasive, they can’t be avoided entirely, and even low levels of exposure can disrupt the endocrine system. We recommend a medically supervised detoxification twice a year to maintain optimal endocrine system health and function.

Detoxing boosts the body’s built-in detox pathways to help eliminate these dangerous chemicals.

Reducing Your Exposure to Endocrine-disrupting chemicals

Reducing exposure to EDCs is an important first step toward lowering levels of these chemicals in the body. Unfortunately, despite widespread efforts to minimize the use of EDCs in production and manufacturing, many popularly used goods contain such compounds, including the following:

  • Plastics and canned goods containing bisphenol A (BPA) and other bisphenols
  • Furniture, mattresses, and certain kitchen items contain chemical flame retardants
  • Personal care products, weed killers, and unfiltered water containing high-risk pesticides
  • Cleaning and personal products containing methylisothiazolinone
  • Sunscreen and fragrances containing oxybenzone
  • Personal care products containing parabens
  • Plastic containers, canned goods, and fragrances containing phthalates
  • Electrical equipment, insulation, caulking, and fish containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)
  • Antimicrobial hand soap and cleaning products containing triclosan or triclocarban

To reduce your exposure to EDCs, take the following precautions:

  • Check food and product labels
  • Opt for organic products whenever you have the choice
  • Use natural cleaning, household, and personal care products
  • Avoid plastics, especially single-use plastic items and those used for storing or cooking food or storing or drinking beverages
  • Stop using artificially scented products, such as air fresheners and dryer sheets
  • Drink filtered water

Keep in mind that you cannot completely avoid EDCs. They’re in the air we breathe, in the soil, and in many of the foods and beverages we consume. However, reducing exposure can help to maintain a manageable toxic load, so your body’s built-in detox mechanisms are not overwhelmed.

Detoxing to Remove EDCs from the Body

Here at the BioDesign Wellness Center, we recommend a medically supervised detox twice yearly to support the body’s natural detoxification pathways. We also recommend detoxification for patients experiencing any health issues related to endocrine system dysfunction likely caused or made worse by EDCs, such as the following:

  • Metabolic disorders (obesity, type 2 diabetes)
  • Fatigue (physical and mental)
  • Mood irregularities (depression, irritability, anxiety)
  • Poor sleep (inability to fall asleep or stay asleep or waking up feeling tired)
  • Alterations in sperm quality and fertility
  • Abnormalities in sex organs
  • Endometriosis
  • Early puberty
  • Neurological issues
  • Immune system dysfunction (overactive or underactive or autoimmunity)
  • Certain cancers
  • Respiratory disorders
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Cognitive impairment (learning disabilities, brain fog, poor memory recall)

In today’s world, your toxic load is prone to reach levels that exceed your body’s ability to eliminate them on its own. A medically supervised detox protocol provides the body with the nutrients, chemical binders, and other supports to enhance its natural detoxification processes.

How Detoxification Works

Detoxification Tampa FLBecause our bodies are naturally “self-cleaning,” a thorough detox is easier than most people think.

The liver, gallbladder, kidneys, intestines, and skin assist in this process — each working hard to keep the body in balance. To support detox, you rest and support the organs and cells in ways that enable them to detox at an optimal level.

The liver is the center of the detox pathways. At BioDesign Wellness Center, we provide a specific diet protocol to “rest” the liver while “supporting” the cells with abundant antioxidants, minerals, and healthy fats that are needed to clean and repair cells.

The protocol is easy to perform — follow the provided diet plan while taking a morning and evening dose of supplements and, along the way, report any concerns or successes to us. The expectation is to feel better in a few short weeks, improving weight management, sleep patterns, energy levels, digestion, and moods.

An important part of the detox protocol here at the BioDesign Wellness Center includes meeting with members of your healthcare team, who can adjust the protocol to fit your individual needs. It’s important to move at the right pace for your body.

Working hand-in-hand with us and spending the time to understand what works best for your body is key to all our treatment protocols, including your medically supervised detox.
If you think you may benefit from a detox protocol, we strongly recommend doing so only under medical supervision.

Detoxing too quickly or using the wrong supplements can do more harm than good or be ineffective. Consult a functional medicine practice near you to schedule an examination, determine whether you need detoxification, and (if you do) obtain a personalized detox protocol.
