Start the New Year Right with Our 10 day or 21 Day Detox

I don't know about you but I certainly overindulged a little too much this holiday season! The new year is a great time to do a detoxification program to restore, renew, and reset your sights for the upcoming year. Detoxification is a great tool because its simple, low cost and has superior therapeutic results. Our bodies detox continuously as a natural function. It's only when our detox mechanisms become overloaded that the process becomes less efficient and symptoms may occur. Toxins may be internal or external in origin. Pollution or pesticides in our food source put undue stress on our detox organs, especially the kidneys and liver. Improper digestion and imbalanced gut ecology provide internal forms of toxins in the way of metabolic by-products stemming from certain bacteria which have toxic side effects and therefore impact negatively on overall health by compromising detox pathways.

Do you have Adrenal Fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue is one of the most common problems that I see in patients. Many chronic symptoms that people experience on a day to day basis are in part due to their overtaxed adrenal glands. Individuals experience continuous stress from emotional stressors and physical stressors (e.g. sleep deprivation, caffeine consumption, pain, extreme exercise) without adequate recovery.

The Vaccine Balancing Act

I often have patients come in with questions about vaccinations: should they vaccinate their child and if so when, what are the alternatives to vaccination, what happens if their child gets one of the diseases? I must admit I have been unsure myself about what the best answer is. I usually advise patients that if they don't vaccinate they must breastfeed for a minimum of 2 yrs along with doing immune support. I also tell parents that if their child gets one of the childhood diseases they need to be comfortable with that and have a game plan.

If you have attempted to quit smoking, you know how difficult it can be. Nicotine is a powerful addiction. In fact, research suggests that nicotine is as addictive as heroin, cocaine, or alcohol. It is estimated that most smokers will attempt to quit two or three times, or more, before finally kicking the habit. When conventional methods to quit smoking have failed, smokers often look outside mainstream approaches and turn to alternative medicine.
