Detoxing

Your body is designed to get rid of toxins but it can be overburdened with too much of them. Toxin buildup can disrupt your immune system, hormones, nervous system, and reproductive system. Detoxification (or purification) can help rid your body of toxins and allow for healthy weight management and improve your quality of life. Going about this process without certain steps can leave you feeling like you've got the flu, though. Contact De Geer Health & Wellness for more information.

  • External toxins include pollutants and chemicals. About 80,000 chemicals are registered for use in the U.S. and hundreds of these are present in our bodies. They can include pesticides, preservatives, cigarettes, cosmetics, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, and cleaning products.
  • Internal toxins include natural metabolic by-products, such as free radicals, hormone metabolites, CO2, and ammonia.
    Common symptoms of a high toxic load include: low libido, digestive difficulty, low mental clarity, food cravings and weight gain, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, and low energy.

Toxins, hormones, and drugs travel through our liver and gut were they get broken down with BIOTRANSFORMATION. There are 3 steps involved with this:

Transforming a fat-soluble, non-polar toxin, hormone, or drug into a reactive oxygen species (Don't stop here because it's more toxic and we don't want to reabsorb it!)
Latching onto the free radical through conjugation
Removing the toxin from your body (through feces, urine, or sweat). Bile from your gallbladder is pretty important in this process.


So What Do I Do?

The general steps to a detox include:

  1. Detox your bowels: improve digestion, handle constipation, support good bacteria (probiotics). This reduces the toxic burden on your body and reduces cholesterol reabsorption. You want to clear a route for the toxins to leave your body after you release them so they're not reabsorbed and make you sick.
  2. Improve your diet: Eat fresh foods and quality fats & oils, drink water, avoid processed foods and refined carbs.
  3. Support liver detox and fat metabolism with phase I & II detox pathways.
