A Functional Medicine Approach To Detox
We are exposed to dozens of chemicals and toxins daily; through ingestion, inhalation, and absorption. One chronic source of exposure is the food and liquid we consume. Chemicals are added to or food and drink for various reasons, whether it's for preservation or for taste, they can harm our body. Even worse, many people consume these chemicals unknowingly and unwillingly.
Often our lifestyles are very emotionally toxic, and as such, people form terrible, “chemical” habits to cope. Drinking too much alcohol, soda, eating processed and sugar laden foods, or smoking, these chemical habits are incredibly bad for your health. They cause your body harm, not just from the substances themselves, but from the affect these things have on how your body naturally eliminates other toxins.
Fortunately, there are holistic and natural health treatments available that can help you detox , supporting your body's own natural ability. Transformation Wellness Center LLC in Grand Junction, CO has expert experience and treatments to guide you down the path of successful detoxification.
What is Detox?
A natural detoxification program is aimed at safely removing toxins from the body. Our bodies inherently have varied and powerful ways of removing toxins naturally via waste. However, over time, the function of our livers, gut, lungs, and kidneys can slowly decline. Harmful toxins can effect how your cells function and how waste is moved around the body and where it is stored. Overburdened or ineffective detoxification can lead to significant chronic health issues. Dr. Jordheim, a functional medicine practitioner, will asses your body's overall toxic burden and metabolic state and provide you with the detox program and treatment option that best fit you.
What Consists of a Detox Program?
The first step of any good detoxification program is to remove exposure and/or consumption of the toxins that are harming your body. This means removing harmful foods, drinks, environmental exposures, and even internal metabolic or system toxic loads. During this removal we focus on supporting your body's natural ability to detoxify through healthy foods, supplementation, and natural agents that bind and remove specific toxins in you body.
Dr. Jordheim, your functional medicine practitioner, will make recommendations and suggestions specific for you and based upon your current health status. For example, tailored detoxification protocols, daily practices, specific therapies, and other natural items that assist in systemic detoxification and overall health promotion.
