Detox with Acupuncture and Natural Medicine
Written By: Dr. Tatyana Johnson ~ 1/27/2020

BLOGPOST_Detox01272020_s.jpgWhen people decide to pursue a detoxification program, they often rely on only boxed cleanses and a perfect diet for a week or two. Detoxification is a complex process, and using acupuncture while detoxing will not only assist in all detoxification phases but also dramatically decrease the side effects, such as headaches, body aches, fatigue, cravings, nausea, and bloating. If your GI system is not functioning properly or you have coexisting chronic health problems, these side effects can be very disturbing and make the cleanse process more difficult.

Why it is important to detox?
Toxins in the body can lead to emotional and physical imbalances, resulting in the following symptoms:

  • Constant fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Stiffness in joints
  • Mood swings
  • Poor memory and/or mental fatigue
  • Lack of motivation
  • Food cravings, overeating, indigestion, and/or bloating
  • Low libido

Why metabolic detoxification is one of the best choices?
One of the best and safest ways to detox your body is by using a metabolic detoxification approach, which involves your body’s natural process of eliminating toxins from your cells. This process can be achieved with support from acupuncture, botanical medicine injections, and organic plant-based supplements. The duration of the detox program depends on the level of toxicity, but it usually lasts 2 to 3 months. A detailed health history intake and physical exam are necessary for establishing the optimal plan.

The phases of metabolic detoxification include:
Transformation: The body transforms fat-soluble toxins to an “unlocked” state that is more water-soluble and, in many cases, more toxic than its original form.

Neutralization: The highly toxic substances produced in the transformation phase convert to non-toxic molecules and become even more water-soluble.

Elimination: Water-soluble toxins leave the cells, and the body eliminates them.

The end of winter, spring, and fall are the best seasons to detox your body. Schedule a free 30-minute online consultation. Visit our website for more details.
