DETOXIFICATION, DO I REALLY NEED IT?
Most people who attempt to live healthfully don't think detoxification is necessary for their family. This thinking is usually based on comparing themselves to those they know who eat fast food regularly, smoke, don't exercise, and believe their water intake is sufficient as long as they consume two glasses of sweetened tea a day. But the facts show that even if you work on removing the heavy toxic hitters from your life like:
Trans fats- MSG,.and all it's pseudo names - Artificial Sweeteners including Splenda or Sucralose - Pesticides and Herbicides, the Dirty Dozen (EWG's 12 highest pesticide foods)- Chlorine, Fluoride and Bromine- Over Abundance of Omega 6 fatty acids - Toxic Supplements -Fast Foods- HFCS- High Fructose Corn Syrup -Plasticizers - Hormone laden meat - Over the counter and prescription drugs- Sugar and other high glycemic carbohydrates- Canned, Boxed and Refined Food - Household cleaning supplies and building products - Personal care and beauty products
There is still reason to be concerned:
Dr. Sherry Rogers explains in her book "Detoxify or Die", that toxins plague everyone on planet earth; even life in remote places like the North Pole is toxic. Due to the abundance of environmental poisons that we are all exposed to our bodies are overwhelmed and toxins slowly accumulate because our systems are unable to keep up with necessary levels of detoxification. Dr. Rogers explains, "We inhale well over 500 (environmental chemicals) everyday in the average home environment, and this does not even count the office, factory or traffic and the rest of out doors" (Detoxify or Die, 2002 pg 53).
Symptoms of toxicity are enormously varied but some examples include: weight gain, hormone disruption, depression, mood swings, memory problems, loss of libido, allergies, body aches, migraines, fibromyalgia, neurological disorders, immune system disorders, arthritis, cancer and most disease processes. Dr Rogers believes that a persons toxic overload is the root of all "incurable" symptoms. (The Cholesterol Hoax, 2008,pg 3230)
Dr. Rogers suggests a number of methods that everyone should use to detox themselves from the daily onslaught of chemicals.
High Quality Supplementation
Homeopathic Heavy Metal Immobilizers
Air and Water Solutions
Electro-magnetic Protection Devices
EB Cellular Cleanse
Endermologie-for superior enhancement of lymphatic circulation

Take the Toxicity Questionaire to see if you should participate in our Detox Program!
In our clinic we use the EB-Pro Cellular Cleanse Therapy by Erchonia Medical. It's an 18-23 minute session where you place your feet or hands into a warm aqueous solution while the machine creates an ionic field which enables the body to eliminate unwanted toxins that are stored in our tissues. There are 3 ways toxic materials can become trapped in the "matrix (the extracellular, cytoplasmic, and nuclear matrices that form a continuously interconnected fabric extending throughout the body). It is the operation of this system that is compromised by toxic accumulation. The fuctioning of virtually all of the physiological systems will be enhanced by toxic removal. Toxins can be mechanically trapped, ionic binding to charges on the matrix surfaces, and uncharged molecules adhere to the matrix"-all of which the EB-Pro addresses during the treatment. Patients report having better quality of sleep, less pain, more energy, and a general improved sense of well-being. It's an amazing thing to see the amount of "junk" that comes out of some of our patients, but they all report feeling much better after completing the program!"

We also use High Tech Health Far Infrared Sauna for another great source of detoxification.
Far Infrared Saunas are another great way to eliminate unwanted toxins from our systems. Patients enjoy the fact that they don't have to get as hot as conventional saunas but still sweat enough to get the healthy benefits their body's need.
