Who needs Liver detoxification?
Living in the modern world, chances are, YOU DO!
The Liver organ system provides us with the sense of renewal, reawakening and rebirth. It gives us connection to the future and allows us to plan and design all areas of our lives. The Liver provides us the vision and foresight to move ahead and manifest our dreams. On a physical level, the Liver is in charge of cleansing blood and filtering and metabolizing every toxin that passes through our body.
Manufacturing bile, which is necessary for the excretion of toxins, digesting fats and absorbing nutrients from food is also the responsibility of the Liver. A healthy Liver is absolutely vital to your overall well-being! In this day and age, where we are constantly exposed to pesticides and chemical pollutants, human beings need to have healthy livers to eliminate toxins from our system. But how can we tell when our bodies are overwhelmed with toxins and could use our active assistance?
Here are few common symptoms of toxic overload:
·Feeling tired, sluggish, lethargic
·Trouble concentrating and staying focused
·Catch colds easy
·Unpleasant body odor
·Frequent gas, bloating or indigestion
·Allergies and/or food sensitivities
·Skin problems like acne, psoriasis, eczema
·Constipation and other gastrointestinal irregularities
·Irritability/Depression/Anxiety & Erratic Emotional Ups & Downs
·Weak immune system
There are fasting and Liver cleansing programs and products out there. These may consist of periods of not eating, only consuming juices, taking laxative concoctions, and “cleansing herbs” which are often somewhat toxic. One of the main reasons I developed this Detoxification Program is the havoc that I have observed numerous “cleanses” wreaking on my patients. People were trying to help themselves, but were mislead. They were given incorrect information at various health food stores or on the internet.
This Detoxification Program mixes Chinese wisdom and modalities with Western liver support. This medically supervised program consists of:
- ·Nutritional supplementation shown to enhance Liver detoxification phases 1 & 2
- ·A reasonable, safe fast from potential inflammatory foods and allergens
- ·Evaluation for Chinese herbal prescriptions
- ·Four detoxifying Acupuncture treatments
