Detoxification

IV Detoxification

When our body is in severe distress, whether it is inflammation, infection or cancer, the most efficient way to clear toxins out is through intravenous infusion. Different medications, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals can be used in the detoxification protocol.

Glutathione is a strong antioxidant produced by our body to prevent cell damage by oxygen free radicals, toxins and carcinogens.

As we age our level of glutathione production decreases. The Journal of Clinical Epidemiology (47:1021-26, 1994) states that lower glutathione levels are implicated in many diseases associated with aging including cataracts, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, atherosclerosis and others.

A review article published in the Annals of Pharmacology stated that glutathione is important in DNA synthesis and repair, protein and prostaglandin synthesis, amino acid transport, detoxification of toxins and carcinogens, enhancement of the immune system and protection from oxidation and enzyme activations.

IV Detoxification can be helpful in the following situations:

Removal of unwanted toxins: alcohol, nicotine, botox, heavy metals, prescription medication overdose

  • Anti-aging
  • Chronic or frequent infections
  • Chronic inflammatory disease: Chrohn's disease, Ulcerative colitis, Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
  • Cancer: Increasing the effectiveness of a chemotherapeutic drug used to treat breast cancer, adjunctive treatment for liver cancer and reducing the toxicity of cyst-platinum
  • Neurological conditions: reducing tremor in Parkinson’s disease as well as improving cognitive function in Alzheimer’s disease
  • Reduction in cardiovascular risk: Lowering blood pressure in patients with diabetes
IV Chelation

Chelation is a heavy metal detoxification therapy. The primary purpose of Chelation is to detoxify and cleanse out our arteries, fat and bones, restoring them to optimal function and repair. Lead and mercury are two of the most common heavy metals we are exposed to in our environment. Toxic metals adversely affect every organ system disrupting homeostasis of nutrient elements.

Chelation therapy can be provided intravenously or by oral supplementation. If you are experiencing various vague symptoms unexplained by regular blood work and physical exam, consider testing for urine levels of heavy metal content in your body.

10 Day Detox Diet Plan

We are constantly exposed to environmental toxins. What we eat, drink, breathe and touch can accumulate in our bodies, potentially causing undesirable symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain and brain fog.

Your body’s natural cleansing process may be able to eliminate water soluble compounds, but fat soluble compounds require enzymes from the liver and nutrients to breakdown.

Our 10 Day Liver Detox Kit provides you with dietary guidelines and science-based natural supplements and protein shakes to support your natural pathways of metabolic detoxification. (Click here to find out more about the Kit)

Our 10-Day Detox Diet Plan that will help you to:
  • Jumpstart your metabolism
  • Eliminate annoying cravings
  • Increase your energy as you cleanse your body of harmful toxins

You will feel healthier than you have in years as you begin to lose unwanted weight and body fat.

7(21) Detox Program

The 7(21) Detox program works by creating a full metabolic reset geared towards facilitation of hormone optimization and balance as well as toxicity and fat removal.  Toxins are fat soluble and often need targeted nutritional strategy for long-term weight loss to occur; this is why many people do not lose weight even on calorie restricted diets with exercise plans until they use proper nutritional protocol. The 7(21) Detox causes fat cells to be released and disposed of while at the same time added deficient nutrients back into the tissues, helping you to not only lose weight, but to reach optimal health and hormonal balance at the same time.
