The New Year has arrived and typically brings New Year’s resolutions that include improving your health. One of the best ways to kick start new healthy habits is a New Year detox or cleanse. The physicians at Living Wellness Medical Center fully support starting the year off with great health. We expose ourselves to chemicals through air pollution, cosmetics, cleaning products, water, plastics, food, and more throughout the year. These build up in the body over the year and can affect your health. A New Year detox/cleanse is a great way to medically support the body to get rid of this chemical build-up and feel better. The doctors at Living Wellness can guide you through a medical detox/cleanse to improve your general health, help with weight, hormone control, inflammation, digestion, and many other concerns.
Your Body Needs a Vacation
Our bodies are very well designed to eliminate toxins; however, this process can get bogged down with the number of environmental exposures we receive daily. Whether it’s from our food, from the air we breathe, the fluids we drink, or the amount of stress we are exposed to daily. Doing a cleanse gives your body a break. It’s like unplugging your computer or WiFi router or hitting the “refresh” button in your web browser.
Boost your Energy, Improve your Mood, and more!
Symptoms that we have found tend to improve after doing a detox/cleanse include:
- Increased energy
- Improved mood
- Mental clarity and improved concentration
- Clearer skin
- Improved blood circulation
- Weight loss
- Improved digestion
- Hormone balance
What is a detox or cleanse?
The basic principle behind detoxification and cleansing is to remove the chemicals stored in your body that slow your metabolism, change your hormones, and affect your health. This is done by releasing chemicals from fat tissue, organs, and extracellular spaces that your body has been storing for years. Once they are released, they will re-enter the bloodstream and will be metabolized through the liver. This is where it is critical to support liver phase-one and phase-two detoxification pathways with naturopathic medicine. Next, the organs of elimination need to be supported to get the toxic byproducts produced from the liver out of the body. The doctors at Living Wellness can guide you through this process safely and effectively using naturopathic medicine treatment modalities. Education on avoiding the sources of chemicals in our food, air, water, and products is key to prevention.
Improve your digestion
You have heard the phrase “you are what you eat,” but really, it is best to say, “you are what you eat, digest, and absorb.” Participating in a detox/cleanse can improve the digestive system. This includes the liver, the small and large intestine, the kidneys, and more. It can help support blood sugar regulation, bowel movement habits, and bacterial balance in the intestines. A large portion of our immune system activity starts in the gut. Although naturopathic physicians have been speaking for decades about the importance of gut health, modern research is beginning to support this as well. Gut health is connected to mental health, hormonal balance, chronic disease, and so much more. Heal the gut, and the body will follow!
