Detoxification Q & A

What is detoxification?

Detoxification refers to the process of removing harmful substances from your body. There are many ways to go about detoxification, which often include dietary modifications and supplements, far infrared sauna, Frequency Specific Microcurrent™, and specific IV therapies that encourage your body to flush away toxins. 

Most people will gradually clear toxins over time, but some people have blocked or dysfunctional systems that allow toxins to continually build up.  This can result in fatigue, increasing allergies and chemical sensitivities, headaches, and brain fog. The doctors at Tri-Life Health can help you determine what sort of toxins you are dealing with and how best to remove them safely and effectively. Your provider supervises you as you go through detoxification to make sure the process is successful.

The buildup of toxins in your body fat stores can cause difficulty with weight loss.  While detoxification will not cause weight loss, it can help improve tissue health resulting in better weight loss success with proper diet and activity. It also can help you avoid health complications associated with the presence of certain toxins in your body. Tri-Life Health, PC, can help you understand the unique approach and benefits of the detoxification process in your case.   

What kinds of toxins can affect my body?

There are many types of toxins, all of which can enter your body and cause damage to your organs. Some of them come from a poor or imbalanced diet, others through your environment. 

One toxin that Tri-Life Health, PC, can help remove from your system is heavy metals. You already have small amounts of trace metals in your system, like iron and zinc, and they benefit your body’s functioning. However, large amounts of metals like iron, lead, copper, arsenic, cadmium, or mercury can do serious damage to your organs and essentially poison you. They can put you at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease, kidney diseases, and neurological conditions.

Other types of toxins removable through detoxification include cigarette smoke, air pollution, pesticides, herbicides, industrial chemicals, solvents, cosmetics, mold, and pharmaceuticals – to name a few. 

How will I feel after detoxification?

Detoxification can make you feel better, both mentally and physically, in several ways. After detoxification, you might feel:

  • More awake
  • More alert
  • More energized
  • Less fatigued
  • Less stressed
  • Less bloated

You might also notice that your digestion improves or a difference in your skin’s quality. Generally, detoxification can aid in many parts of your functioning and ease inflammation throughout your body. To reap long-term benefits of detoxification, Tri-Life Health, PC, has a nutritionist on staff that can help you maintain a healthy diet and decrease your risks of chronic conditions.
