Over the past few years I have become increasingly alarmed by the amount of information appearing in scientific journals, books and the media on toxicity. These reports describe the problem of increasing chemical toxicity in people that may be creating serious health problems.
It seems that our modern life exposes us to a huge variety of harmful chemicals. The complex and very foreign nature of these chemicals make it hard for the body to eliminate them by the usual processes. Instead, these chemicals are stored in the fatty tissues of the body, where they become more concentrated and begin to do damage. Accumulated toxins have been implicated in certain types of cancer, nerve degeneration and weight gain.
In the past, natural physicians have assisted their patients in detoxification, using pure water fasting. Fasting has indeed been done for centuries for health and purification. Unfortunately, with the high toxic loads common today, fasting often creates significant symptoms in people that are unpleasant enough to force them to stop the fast prematurely.
The solution is to use natural compounds to accumulate and bind the toxins so that they can be transported out of the body. This is added to a low caloric intake that is supplemented by the necessary vitamins and nutrients to provide antioxidant protection during the process.
Graham Rehabilitation will be offering a supervised 21 day detoxification program quarterly. The program has been tested in other offices in the country and people have reported great success. Patients have seen great results in our office too, with weight and inches lost, reduced body fat percentages and even more energy and clearer thinking.
The cleanse is based on the programs designed by Holly Carling ND, Coeur d’Alene, ID and the Standard Process Company in Redmond WA
