Detoxification refers to how your body gets rid of waste. Making sure your body detoxifies optimally is critical in keeping you well.
It is impossible to keep harmful toxins out of your body. The statistics are mind boggling. Modest estimates suggest we are exposed to over 700,000 toxic chemicals on a daily basis. More than 72,000 synthetic chemicals have been produced since World War II. Only 2% of the chemicals produced have been tested for toxicity. Thankfully, when your body is functioning at its best, it can keep the toxic load low.
Your ability to detoxify depends on your biochemistry and genetic predisposition. It is influenced by your health. Cumulative exposure to toxins can overload your body’s ability to clear them and toxins can build up. Toxins are stored in fatty tissue. As these toxins continue to accumulate, they may cause problems with sleep, acne, headaches and more. Improper elimination of toxins can eventually lead to serious illness including dementia, autoimmune disease, digestive dysfunction and cardiac disease.
The Functional Medicine Center of Montana offers a number of advanced treatment and laboratory testing methods to identify if you have a genetic predisposition or unique biochemistry that will limit your ability to detoxify. Specific lifestyle and nutrient recommendations will be made based on your results to reduce your toxicity in a safe and effective manner.
Our goal is to teach you how to cleanse your body of dangerous toxins while promoting a healthy diet and lifestyle practice.
Optimal detoxification is critical for health and vitality. It is essential for living a long and disease-free life. If you suffer from a chronic illness and desire to learn more about how to help your body detoxify better, schedule an appointment at the Functional Medicine Center of Montana!
