Detoxification is defined as the process of removing toxic substances or qualities. Part of being in good health is to rid the body of harmful toxins. Studies using blood tests and tissue samples from Americans across the nation have consistently shown that ALL Americans have toxic chemical accumulation regardless of whether or not they work in chemical factories or are exposed at home or work. For example, a recent report from the CDC found toxic chemicals such as pesticides in all Americans, but most prominently in minorities, women, and children. Nearly all of these chemicals are known to contribute to health problems in humans such as cancer, fatigue, poor memory, endocrinopathy, fertility issues, Parkinson’s disease, autoimmune diseases like lupus, and many other serious conditions. This is why detoxification programs are a necessity not a luxury. (Integrative Orthopedics 2007)

Why do I need Purification / Detoxification?
Purification is the removal of contaminants by internally cleansing and detoxifying your body. More than 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals are released into the environment each year, which can accumulate in the body and impact your health. Purification, also known as detoxification, can help remove natural toxins from your body and help you maintain a healthy weight.
Unfortunately, we are exposed to toxins everyday by pollutants, pesticides and chemicals. Our body has the natural ability to produce waste byproducts as a result of our normal metabolic function. However, your body can become overburdened by these toxins. Purification offers your body additional support to assist in expelling natural toxins and minimize weight gain.
Toxins can contribute to a wide range of conditions:
- Stuffy head
- Fatigue or difficulty sleeping
- Digestion and other gastrointestinal problems
- Food cravings and weight gain
- Reduced mental clarity
- Low libido
