The body’s natural process of detoxification helps to rid itself of toxins. Your sweat, digestion, urinary system, and the liver all play a role in how your body deals with everyday toxin exposure. When one system slows down or gets overburdened, the other systems jump in to pick up the slack. It’s a true team approach when toxin levels are manageable and no system is severely compromised.
Ongoing detoxification of our body and cells is critical in achieving optimal digestion and overall health. The liver is thought to be the quarterback of the detoxification process. It works to convert toxins into waste products, cleanses the blood, and metabolizes nutrients to provide the body with important proteins. Our body goes through a two phase detoxification process. We think of it as phase 1, the bioformation phase, where we “bring the trash to the curb”, and phase 2, the conjugation phase, where “the trash gets picked up and removed completely”. While our liver is supposed to be constantly detoxifying, it often gets stagnant, considering stress, poor diet, nutrient deficiencies, and environmental toxins can throw these phases out of balance. Evaluating signs, symptoms, and in-depth testing can alert us that it’s time for a ‘spring cleaning’ in order to upregulate these two phases of detoxification.
The Detoxification Programs at Physio Logic are focused on supporting phase 1 and phase 2 of the detoxification process, based on your unique body system to provide adequate detoxification and achieve optimal health.
Here’s how we evaluate whether it’s time for a cellular detox:
“After seeing Michelle for nutrition for a few months, we did a second blood test, and it was great to see such positive results in such a short time.”
I signed up for the 3 month FRESH Integrative Medicine Program to see Dr. Robert Graham, Michelle Miller, and Julie Graham. It’s been a great program so far. It gives me some accountability, I’ve tried different health programs in the past, but I never stay motivated enough to see it all the way through. It has helped me jump-start my life to develop better habits.
