Detoxification — reset your systems with our detox treatments
Why would someone find it necessary to take on detoxification? First, an explanation: Detoxification is an automatic and ongoing process that takes place within each of the trillions of cells found in our bodies.
It is a process that occurs 24/7/365 as we metabolize food, waste, medications, alcohol, pesticides, mold, and other ubiquitous toxins found in the environment. Put simply, detoxification is a natural process that our bodies perform every day. Therefore, the purpose of a medically supervised detoxification protocol, is to boost your body’s ability to detox properly.
Why is detoxification necessary?
There are many reasons we benefit from improving detoxification.
- First, some of us are genetically programmed to be metabolically slower. Or our bodies are found to be less efficient at detoxification. In these cases, we can support your detoxification process with the use of natural supplements chosen and prescribed by the healthcare professionals here at BioDesign Wellness.
Taking supplements and resting your system with the proper dietary protocol makes it easier for the body to carry out normal detoxification. Metabolic pathways in our bodies are designed to detox waste that results from the ingestion of food and the production of energy.
- Second, some of our patients live or work in environments that contain mold. These patients often display symptoms of sluggish bile production in the gallbladder or tell us about digestive issues or neurological concerns. Mold illness requires detoxification support in order to successfully treat and resolve the symptoms.
- Third, hormone imbalances and certain forms of birth control — or other exogenous hormones — need to be detoxed as well. Many women who are currently using birth control or fertility treatments or have in the past, require detoxification support.
The liver is responsible for breaking down hormones that are ingested and hormones that are found in personal care products, plastic water bottles and food. When the liver has trouble recycling and eliminating excessive hormones. women often exhibit persistent bloating, PMS, anxiety, depression and weight gain. The BioDesign Detoxification Protocol can help you to lose the bloated swelling feeling in your body and get back to feeling lighter and happier.
How does detoxification work?
Because our bodies are naturally “self-cleaning,” a thorough detox is actually easier than most people think. Assisting in this process are the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, intestines, and skin — each working hard to keep the body in balance.
To support detox, you “rest” and “support” the organs and cells in order to help them perform optimally.
The liver is the center of the detox pathways. At BioDesign Wellness, 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 — just follow the provided diet plan while taking a morning and evening dose of supplements and report any concerns or successes to us along the way.
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 BioDesign Wellness includes meeting with 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 our health protocols.
