Why Do I Need to Detoxify?

Although we are always working to detoxify your body of metals, chemicals, and harmful residues from improper food choices, a formal detoxification program, or cleanse, can greatly enhance the success of your program. Sometime along your journey to optimal health, we will discuss detox options with you.

We are exposed to external toxins continually, including pollutants, pesticides, and chemicals. Internally our bodies produce waste byproducts as a result of normal metabolic function. The packaged food industry is dedicated to making sure we are loaded with toxins with every bite we take. Although your body is designed to rid itself of these toxins naturally, it can become overburdened. Detoxification, or Purification, offers your body additional support to expel toxins and minimize your weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality.

There are many types of toxins and we are all exposed to them every day. Radiation from cell phones, computers and cell phone towers can be especially destructive to your health. Heavy metal toxicity can come from mercury in our mouths, mercury in vaccinations, lead paint, copper pipes, artificial joint replacements, and many other sources. Chemical exposure comes from car exhaust, processed foods, pesticides, shampoos, cleaning agents, and even dirty building syndrome. And, of course, sugar and refined grains cause a buildup of toxic byproducts in your tissues that can cause many health problems.

Toxins can contribute to a wide range of conditions including:
• Stuffy head, allergies
• Fatigue and difficulty sleeping
• Digestion and other gastrointestinal problems
• Food cravings and weight gain
• Reduced mental clarity, forgetfulness
• Low sex drive

Our Purification Program helps your body purify and rebuild itself from the inside out. The program gives you a structured plan for purifying, nourishing, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. With the help of a clean diet and specific nutritional supplements, you will stimulate specific detoxification organs in the body – the liver, kidneys, and intestines. Your toxic load will decrease, and your body will concentrate its energy on purification and weight reduction.

The program consists of eating whole, organic, and unprocessed foods; taking whole food supplements; replacing one or two meals per day with a protein shake; and drinking plenty of water. The detox usually last 21 days, however, Dr. Mitchem may design a program specific to your needs.

PS: One of our patients recently completed the 21 Day Purification Program. Bloodwork was done before and after the cleanse. Her cholesterol went from 272 to 189 (in 3 weeks!), triglycerides are down from 169 to 107, and glucose down from 103 to 90. We are very proud of her great results!
