BioHarmony Medical offers a monitored detox program that takes a whole-body approach to increasing the functionality of your own natural detoxing systems. We deliver a two phase Detox Program that is a comprehensive and balanced approach to detox that supports all the major systems. This is not a "master cleanse"; it is true detoxification that involves a combination of supplements, a modified elimination diet, a gentle colon cleanse, skin brushing and Epsom salt baths.
Patients will receive a full health assessment that allows Dr. Wright to customize the detox according to the patient's specific concerns or needs. A supplement regimen will be prescribed, all of which are pharmaceutical grade and only available through a licensed healthcare provider.
The BioHarmony Medical detox program is designed to support the two phases of true detoxification. First, the process of unlocking and unbinding toxins from your tissue. Second, the breaking down of toxins into a form that then can be eliminated from the body.
Why detox? Well, it's not as if you aren't already. In fact, you are detoxing, every moment of every day.
That's right. You already "know" how to detox or, at least, your body does. Detoxing is one of the fundamental processes of sustaining life. Our body takes in toxins, pollution, allergens and chemicals every time we eat. Every time we breathe. Every time we touch. And it's our body's natural function to filter this "bad information" and expel it.
Detoxing is so vital to life that the body has five separate systems charged with it:
Gastrointestinal: The most obvious of the five, this includes the entirety of the GI tract (stomach, intestines), as well as the liver, gallbladder and colon.
- Urinary: The kidneys and bladder are vital to expelling waste from our systems.
- Respiratory: From the lungs to our sinuses, this system both repels and expels pollutants from our bodies.
- Lymphatic: This is the glandular system that processes toxins that enter the body.
- Our Skin: Not only does our skin protect us from so many harmful things that could potential enter our bodies, the sweat glands are vital to excreting that which does get in. Also part of this system are a number of other subcutaneous glands and the ducts that produce tears.
Unfortunately, in an era of plastic and Styrofoam food containers, microwaves, increased environmental pollution and under-regulated food production, our natural detox systems are on overload. We breathe, eat, drink and touch toxins and allergens all day, with no time between exposures to let our bodies systems catch up, until we reach a level of "toxicity" that our bodies cannot manage alone.
When toxicity happens, we experience some, if not all, of the following symptoms:
- Digestive problems
- Irritability, mood swings, depression
- An inability to lose weight
- Environmental sensitivities - such as severe allergies
- Arthritis-like symptoms
- Trouble concentrating
- A general sense of "blah"
WHAT IS A DETOX PROGRAM?
True detoxification involves both dietary and lifestyle changes and is meant to alleviate toxicity-related symptoms, as well a their causes, and fast-track you to a healthier lifestyle.
One, to eliminate the toxins that are currently built up in our tissue. And two, to create a physiological environment in which our bodies can process future toxins more efficiently.
A true detox is not a starvation diet. A true detox is not an all-liquid diet. In fact, a true detox is not a "diet" at all, at least not in the sense that it is a weight loss program.
Unfortunately, fad detoxes are being packaged as such having some people going to extremes with fasting, laxatives, colonics and diuretics in the pursuit of a "cleanse". When we push our bodies too far in one direction, we put ourselves at grave risk of depleting important mineral and vitamins resources in our bodies. That is why it is essential that your detox program be facilitated by a health-care provider.
Most detoxification products and programs focus on unlocking the toxins but fail to provide the critical nutrients needed to break those toxins down so they can be eliminated. Why is this important? Because the headaches, fatigue and flu like symptoms often associated with a typical detox are caused by the body's inability to manage the unlocked toxins effectively.
That is why the two-phase process distinguishes our program from what you would find at health food stores.
