Detoxification: "Spring Cleaning"

by Laura A. Schissell, ND, DC

We live in a toxic world. Even those of us who do our best to avoid toxins and chemicals are exposed to pollutants on a daily basis through air and water pollution. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, we are exposed to tens of thousands of chemicals every day. Because of these daily exposures to chemicals it is important to detoxify our body systems on a regular basis. We have amazing organs of detoxification built into our bodies including our livers, kidneys, lungs, colon and skin. Under ordinary circumstances these organs do a good job of eliminating toxins and dangerous chemicals from our bodies. Due to the large amount of toxins in our present day environment, these chemicals present too much of a challenge for our bodies to manage well by itself.

In my practice, I work with patients to identify which organs of elimination are not functioning optimally and then apply various methods to optimize each organ's function. Some patients only need mild support to increase their body's natural detoxification processes, while others need "deeper cleaning." Naturopathic methods I utilize to optimize detoxification include specialized botanical teas and tinctures, homeopathic remedies, and whole body cleanses.

Spring is traditionally an excellent time to cleanse our bodies to prepare for our more active summer season. Call to schedule an appointment to see what we can do to optimize your body's "spring cleaning"
