Detox

If your diet has comprised of fast food and alcohol for far too long, you may be tempted to try a detox treatment to help rid your body of toxic substances and start your journey to a healthier you. Basically, detoxification means cleansing the blood. This is done by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin. However, when these systems are compromised, impurities aren’t properly filtered and the body is adversely affected.

WHAT IS THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM AND HOW DOES IT HELP TO REMOVE TOXINS FROM OUR BODY?

The lymphatic system is a network of organs, lymph vessels, cells, and nodes that work alongside your circulatory system. It is designed to provide a variety of detoxification functions, acting like your body’s garbage collector, removing waste, debris, and disease components such as viruses, bacteria, toxic matter, and even cancer cells.

Lymphatic drainage massage” is a type of specialized massage therapy that helps cells release toxins and breaks up lymph congestion. We all love a good massage, and a massage will help with the lymphatic system. Lymphatic massage, when done correctly, has been proven to push up to 78% of stagnant lymph back into circulation, which mobilizes toxins for clearance, lessening the burden on the body.

DETOX THERAPY WITH GLUTATHIONE

Glutathione is an amino acid sometimes called the “master antioxidant” of the human body. The job of glutathione is to neutralize free radicals, thereby preventing damage to the cells. Glutathione is a critical component to reducing inflammation and enhancing the functions of the immune system. Glutathione is critical for detoxification in the liver, which is the body’s primary detoxification organ. In the liver, glutathione binds to toxins before they’re excreted, this is an important step in getting them out of your body. A detox full of antioxidants helps your body run smoothly and get rid of toxins and free radicals in the body. Toxins can be ingested or absorbed from the environment — through the food we eat and the air we breathe. Glutathione injection therapy can enhance the elimination of these toxins from the body.
