Detoxification: Yup, it's that time again!

Detox time!

Need a little re-energizing?

A buildup of toxins may be making you feel bad. Chemicals and other potentially harmful substances are in almost everything we breathe, eat, drink, or touch. We also produce internal toxins during normal processes of digestion, waste elimination, stress, and combating infection. Normally the body is quite efficient at removing these unwanted substances, but not always. Unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as a poor diet and lack of regular exercise, can negatively affect the body's detoxification processes. Excess toxin exposureor a buildup due to impaired detoxification activities in the bodycan lead to seemingly unrelated symptoms: fatigue, malaise, irritability, mood swings, bloating, insomnia, headaches, and muscle/joint aches and pains.

A metabolic detoxification program can help, but beware of "fasts" or quick fixes. Just as you clean out the clutter and grime to give your home a fresh start, a metabolic detoxification program is designed to help you clean out junk that may have worn your systems downor created a traffic jam of toxins that's been diverted to body fat for storage. Detoxification activities are driven by nutrients: proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. So while juice or water fasts may give your digestive system a break, they do little to fuel detoxification activities adequately, and may trigger the body to store unhealthy fat. And some detoxification supplements may contain ingredients that lack adequate scientific proof or safe history of use, or fail to promote balanced detoxification activities in multiple phases. That's why it's important to follow a clinically evaluated metabolic detoxification program that includes adequate dietary intake and science-based nutritional support.

Theodoric of York recommends leaches and bloodletting.

I recommend you come in and talk to me about this in person instead of making allegations about a subject you obviously know nothing about. The reference to SNL's Theodoric skit was mildly amusing the first time, the 2nd time its rather stale, as I imagine your knowledge of CAM medicine to be...
