Detoxification

Detoxification


aging

No doubt you have asked yourself why it is that some people age so much more rapidly than others. Aside from genetics and hormones, the factor that influences the aging process more than anything else is toxicity.

Some of these toxins come from the environment, but the upper source of toxicity is our very own bodies. Each cell in our bodies takes in oxygen and nutrients, and from these substrates produces energy and waste products. These waste products are in the form of various organic acids. They are extremely toxic and must be eliminated in order for us to maintain health.

This elimination process is referred to as detoxification. If adequate detoxification does not occur, these toxins will accumulate in the tissues, and gradually over many years, our bodies will become our very own toxic waste dump!

Imagine your organs infiltrated with some accumulation of fifty plus years of organic acids, and it is easy to understand why they began to deteriorate at such an accelerated rate. By understand how your body eliminates these toxins, you will be able to assist it, and prevent toxic accumulation.

LYMPHATIC SYSTEM:

The first step in the detoxification process occurs when the cells excrete the toxins into lymph fluid. Imagine your cells in your body lined like a brick wall, only instead of cement, they are separated by fluid. This fluid is called the lymph fluid. The first place these toxins are deposited is in this lymph fluid.

The lymph fluid slowly progresses to the lymph ducts, and eventually is dumped in the bloodstream just above the heart. There are two things that we much do in order to assist this lymphatic flow into the bloodstream. One, is moving and the other is being horizontal. By movement, I simply mean that activity in which we move the muscles of the arms and tissue of the legs.

I am talking about just routine walking and arm movement that occurs in everyday life. People that especially need this are the ones with desk jobs in which they sit down for long periods of time, like truck drivers or desk jobs. If you work like this be sure to get up every 30 minutes or so and walk around madly waving your arms. Another thing you can do is lymphatic brushing and you can move up and down on your toes. There are also several machines you can buy to move your legs in the horizontal position.

LIGHT BEAM GENERATOR:

I use a highly sophisticated machine called a light beam generator with ozone. The light beam generator affects a swift, safe, and natural method of eliminating excessive lymphatic fluid. The light beam generator assists the body to achieve a free flow of proteins within the lymph system and to release bonded protein blockages in the interstitium of the connective tissue.

The light beam generator is a noninvasive technology and uses extremely low current and negatively charged providing compatible frequencies to the blocked area. This results itself correcting the out of balance condition and disassociating themselves from the binding agent responsible for swelling and blockage.

PULSED ELECTROMAGNETIC FREQUENCY (PEMF):

I also use a 20,000 gauss sine wave PEMF machine to help circulate the lymphatics and raise my negative transmembrane potential and increase my energy stores daily. If you have interest in using the light beam generator and PEMF in my office, please ask me at the time of consultation.

KIDNEYS:

After the lymph flow is dumped in the bloodstream, the circulation carries the toxin to the kidney and the liver. Certain toxins are selectively removed in the kidney and drained to the bladder from which they exit the body. The most important message here is that the kidneys require water to complete this function. They not only require water, they require plenty of water. Not coffee, not soda, not juice or milk. In fact, these fluids will actually impede kidney function. We are talking water here.

LIVER AND INTESTINES:

The toxins that are not eliminated by the kidneys, the great majority of them in fact are eliminated in the liver where they are then excreted down through the gallbladder into the intestines. Here is where dietary fiber becomes so important, because it is the fiber that absorbs the toxins like a sponge, and carries them out of the body. In a situation where inadequate fiber is not present, the toxins will be reabsorbed back into the body. Chronic constipation is a major source of toxins and this is why it is so important to have regular bowel movements every morning.

WHY YOUR LIVER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ORGAN IN YOUR BODY:

The body is a dynamic interactive organism; it is affected by even the slightest alterations in the environment, as well as by thought, emotion, and diet. Of course, these alterations are continually occurring, and in this process they continually throw the body into a state of imbalance.

The metabolic detoxification that takes place in the liver is made up of three phases.

In phase one detoxification, the bulk of the phase one transformation occurs primarily in a family of enzymes called the cytochrome P450 system. These are genetically determined.

Phase two detoxification which is enzyme conjugation also occurs in the liver and is also under genetic control.

Phase three detoxification which is transport is present in many tissues including the liver, intestines, kidneys , and brain, and they can provide a barrier against xenobiotic entry, or a mechanism for an activelymoving xenobiotics and endobiotics in and out of the cell. These three transporters are necessary to secrete the newly formed phase two products out of the cell. The three transporters belong to a family of proteins called ABC transporters, because they require chemical energy, in the form of HEP, to actively pump toxins through the cell membrane and in and out of the cell.

MEASUREMENT OF PHASE I AND PHASE II:

To evaluate the detoxification system in the liver, I feel is extremely important. I use a highly sophisticated test to measure both the phase one cytochrome P450 enzymes, as well as the phase two detoxification-enzymatic conjugation enzymes. Depending on the patient’s results, then additional recommendations are made. This is where drug to drug interactions are extremely important and the side-effects of many prescription drugs can be found on this test.

Let me put this another way, if you want to be healthy, do everything you can to help and protect your liver. Now that you have a good sense of how the body detoxifies itself, let me review different steps for detoxification and the evaluation of your pathways.

  • Measure your detoxification pathways phase one and phase two. Learn what you need to detoxify based on your genes.
  • Intravenous therapies to help detoxify your body.
  • Light beam generator.
  • Pulsed electromagnetic frequency.
  • Infrared sauna.
  • Heavy metal detoxification.
  • Kill infections.
  • Biologic dentistry.
  • Colonics, juicing, fasting.
  • Elimination of free radicals, optimization of hormones and optimum oxygen utilization.

SUMMARY:

Detoxification of our bodies is complex. It involves the lymph system, kidneys, liver, and the intestines.

The liver is your most important organ.

I can perform extensive measurements on your genetic detoxification pathways and then design an optimal program where I can both manage your medications, review your drug to drug interactions, and increase your detoxification capability.

I use intravenous therapies, light beam generator lymphatic therapies, PEMF with high gauss magnet therapy, infrared sauna, heavy metal detoxification, address occult infections, address biologic dentistry, balance your hormones, limit your free radicals, and increase your oxygen utilization.

I USE IV THERAPIES, IV OZONE, PULSED ELECTROMAGNETIC THERAPY (PEMF) , LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE WITH THE LIGHT BEAM GENERATOR, FAR INFRA RED SAUNA, MICROCURRENT, AND HYPERBARIC OXYGEN. IF THERE ARE HEAVY METALS THEY ARE DETOXIFIED THRU CHELATION THERAPY. I ADDITION I CAN MEASURE YOUR DETOXIFICATION GENES , GLUTATHIONE , SUPER OXIDE DISMUTASE, CATALASE AND OTHER MITOCHONDRIAL LEVELS. EACH PATIENT IS THEN TREATED ACCORDING TO THEIR TESTING.

If you are interested in detoxification, please call my office for a consultation.
