“A Healthy Outside Starts from the Inside.”

~Robert Urich

Right now, all around you, there are toxic things swirling in the air you breathe, the food you eat, the water you drink and the chemicals you put on your body. These toxins must be dealt with in your body to keep you healthy and vital. The process of removing toxins from your body is simply called detoxification.

Detoxification can be described as a specific metabolic pathway, active throughout the human body, which processes unwanted toxins for elimination. This pathway utilizes a series of enzyme reactions that neutralize toxins and transports them to secretory organs (like the kidneys or liver), so that they can be excreted from the body. This type of detoxification is sometimes called xenobiotic metabolism, because it is the primary mechanism for ridding the body of xenobiotics (foreign chemicals); however, detoxification reactions are frequently used to prepare unneeded endobiotics (chemicals produced in the body) for excretion from the body.

The process of detoxification can be made to be more efficient and effective by choosing to follow sound nutritional practices and in certain instances, following “Detox” intervention protocols that are designed to provide a foundation for this very critical system to work properly. These protocols can involve targeted nutrition and nutraceutical supplementation, as well as learning to discern which health products could be contributing to your body’s toxic load. Dr. Stacy will partner with you to establish a detoxification regimen that works to eliminate poor health, fed by toxins.
