Supporting Your Body
No government in the world takes into account the synergistic poisonous effects of so called ‘safe levels’ of commercial toxins. For example, out of some 85,000 chemicals permitted for commercial use in the US, only 2% have been tested for safety. While your food is the number-one source of contamination, plastic softeners, perfumes and AC ducts, not to mention the air you breathe are also important factors.
Detoxing assists and improves your body’s own natural detoxification systems. In order to create a personalized detox program for you, our physicians will begin by measuring your toxicity levels with sophisticated electronic devices. The cleanse they recommend could involve anything from simple dietary changes, to short fasts. Specific botanicals, nutrients and intravenous (IV) therapies can be prescribed. If necessary, chelation therapy can safely eliminate heavy metals from your blood. To discuss a personalized detox program, make an appointment with naturopathic physicians Dr Susan Janssens or Dr Heather Eade, or with our doctor of internal medicine, Dr Mark Janowski.
