DETOXIFICATION is about actually clearing toxins from the body by removing them from the adipose (fat cells) and predominately the liver. When the liver gets sluggish or fatty from medications/hormones, the SAD diet (Standard American Diet), alcohol, sugar or other toxins, it does not clear the body well. The result is a build up of toxins in the body that can be released, recirculated and re-stored. This load on the liver will eventually push “macro-toxins” (think large in size) into the lymphatic system which is designed to filter “micro-toxins” (think small in size). The result of all of this can be sluggish energy, inflamed joints, symptoms of auto-immunity, increased blood pressure, diabetes and all around compromised health. These conditions can have an adverse effect that becomes more difficult to manage as we age.
The amount of time and the type of detoxification is specific to all individuals. Dr. George works with each patient as an individual to determine the best practices to support their health, vitality and longevity. Detoxes can be anywhere from 10 days to 28 days and often include Infrared Saunas and dietary shifts as part of the overall process. Healing the liver and refurbishing the gut follow a detox to fortify your health and wellness. Other protocols can become involved if the patient is under a viral, bacterial, fungal or parasitic load
INFRARED SAUNAs are used for so many challenges that confront our bodies on a daily basis. Unlike the traditional Swiss saunas, the heat is produced in your body. There are three wave lengths produced in our sauna, far, mid and near. Far wavelengths penetrate the body the deepest. They can increase your metabolism allowing you to BURN CALORIES while in the sauna.
