Our bodies have become virtual dumping grounds for the hundreds of thousands of toxic compounds that invade our air, water, and even the soil in which our food grows. Today more than 80,000 chemicals are in active production in North America, and more than 3,000 chemicals are in our food supply.
The EPA estimates that our bodies cannot metabolize over 20,000 of these chemicals. So what happens to them? These toxic substances are stored in fat cells throughout our bodies where they continue to accumulate. In fact, studies indicate that most of us have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies.
Toxic metals are those minerals that have no known function in the human body and which are harmful. This is not an absolute definition, as any mineral may become toxic, and some toxic metals may have functions we have not yet discovered.
Toxic metals are ingested, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Once absorbed, toxic metals find their way into the bloodstream. As soon as this occurs, the body attempts to get rid of them through the normal elimination channels—the kidneys, the bile, and the skin. The body also attempts to minimize toxic metal damage by sequestering or storing them away in fatty tissues, hair and other non-essential tissues.
Damage from toxic metals may occur due to their physical properties, their chemical properties or even electromagnetic interference. They often interfere with the absorption and metabolism of essential minerals and they displace vital minerals in enzyme binding sites. This can inhibit or completely disable the affected enzymes.
Together, these chemicals and heavy metals create a situation of chronic toxic overload. As these toxins build up, they can cause enzyme dysfunction and nutritional deficiencies, create hormonal imbalances and reproductive disorders, damage brain chemistry, and can even lead to cancer and other debilitating chronic illnesses like ALS, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's Disease.

We specialize in detoxification therapy
Our clinic has implemented over 2300 detoxification programs with our patients since the early 1980s. We feel that toxin clearance is a priority and is essential for long term well being. There are a number of misconceptions about the 'right way' to clear these poisons from the body. The idea that you have to feel terrible before you feel better is a fallacy and can be dangerous. Special diets, exotic herbs, bath soaks, lotions and potions of many sorts are on the market today. Many of the solutions have little or no research demonstrating safe and effective removal of poisons from the body tissues. Our office implements detoxification treatments that have the science behind them, and the clinical success and testimonials from our patients over the past 30 plus years.
The doctor is trained in advanced functional medicine with the ideal ways to remove toxins from the body. We have fine tuned the Metabolic Clearing purification program that entails an outlined diet along with specific nutritional supplements that support the body's vital detoxification enzyme systems called phase 1 and 2.
The diet length can vary from 14-60 days depending upon the need. It also targets the key cofactors to boost the protein called glutathione that is central to toxin clearance. Glutathione is a pivotal molecule to quench free radical toxins.
Multiple organ, neural and immune supports are targeted during toxin clearance to safely remove these very toxic compounds. Safety is accomplished when toxins are attached to specific molecules to allow body excretion through the intestines, urine, breath and skin. Various natural home therapies are also considerations to promote rejuvenation and restoration of energy and healing.
In addition, the digestive tract microbes (bacteria, yeast, parasite) have to be in a healthy balance before we can effectively clear mercury, lead and other toxics. The majority of individuals benefit greatly from our Gastrointestinal Restoration Program. These are the reasons why patients should consult with an experienced doctor in our center before they delay their healing and possibly injure themselves. Many physicians refer their patients to our center just for detoxification therapy. It is a specialized area of clincial nutrition that can bring incredible rewards of restored health!
If you would like to have your body evaluated for toxins, or just need a second opinion on the right way for your body to detoxify, we have the latest information.
Call our office (952-885-0822) and request a Detoxification Screening Questionaire to see if your toxin clearance is impaired.
