Liver Detox

a sound medical program

A sound detoxification program safely up regulates first Phase II and then Phase I detoxification pathways while supporting your body with the nutrients it needs, as well as supporting the primary organs involved. Designs for Health, Innate Response and Bioclinic Naturals have all created just such state of the art products, and offer medically sophisticated programs for otherwise healthy individuals.

Why Detox?

  • In a study conducted by the CDC that ended in 1989, five of what are know to be the most toxic chemicals humans have created were found in 100% of all human tissue samples taken – and that was 20 years ago! Another study based in Michigan found DDT in more than 70% of the 4-year-olds.
  • In 1989 alone, 5,705,670,380 pounds of chemicals were released into our planet. Three new chemicals are still being released per day from the petrochemical industry. These chemicals are not water soluble and end up in fat cells and in the nervous system.
  • Bisphenol A (a byproduct of the plastics industry) has been shown to have estrogenic endocrine-disrupting effect (like premature onset of menarche) on embryos and fetuses exposed during pregnancy.
  • Scientists from the EPA say there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the country’s #1 weed killer, Atrazine, causes sexual abnormality in frogs at concentrations 30X lower than levels allowed.
  • Sperm counts declined by an average of 1.5% per year in the US between 1939 and 1990.
  • Toxins from the petrochemical industry can reduce levels of as well as increase excretion of thyroid hormones and block thyroid hormone receptors. Toxins also interfere with how carbohydrates are converted to energy in the mitiochondria of all cells – all leading to reduced metabolism and weight loss resistance.
  • Studies link flame retardants (PBDE’s) to behavior changes that bear an uncanny resemblance to attention-deficit disorder common in children, since they appear to migrate from mattresses and computers into the environment and people. Studies show the concentration of PBDE’s in breast milk have been rising rapidly.
  • In a book entitled “Body Burden” by the Environmental Working Group, a study is quoted that found 267 chemicals in the umbilical cord of a newborn infant. 80% of these chemicals didn’t even exist 20 years ago.
  • NJ and Long Island have the highest rates of breast cancer in the United States. It has been suggested by several of the specialists in the cancer field that women’s inability to detoxify their own estrogen (due to livers that are overburdened with detoxifying chemicals that are just part of daily living) may be a significant piece of the puzzle.

Symptoms that can be helped by detoxification:

  • Weight Loss Resistance – toxins, especially those from the petrochemical industry, can interfere with the how carbohydrates are converted to energy in the mitochondria of all cells.
  • Brain Fog
  • Cravings
  • Energy
  • Inflammatory Conditions such as IBS, Asthma, Arthritis, etc.
