It’s a Toxic World Out There!
There are over 850,000 chemicals in use in the United States currently. The most toxic area is our soil, with over 3 billion tons of pesticides found by the CDC in test samples from around the country. Spinach and strawberries topped the Environmental Working Group’s dirty dozen foods for 2018. The most toxic crops are cotton, tobacco, and COFFEE, the most widely consumed beverage in America. So how do we get clean in such a dirty environment? Detoxification.
A Detoxification Program Can Rid the Body of Harmful Toxins
A medical food detoxification program that provides the specific nutrients to allow your body to handle all these toxins is essential. Let’s look closer at how the body gets rid of all those toxins so they are not stored inside of your fat cells.
The liver is where your body takes in the toxins you are exposed to (all are fat soluble). The toxins run through Phase 1, Phase 2, and are eventually brought to the kidney in Phase 3 to be excreted out of the body safely. The problem with most people’s detoxification process is that Phase 1 is going too fast, mainly due to the medications we take and the coffee and alcohol we drink. Phase 2 is too slow to handle this amount of toxins and we start to store these in our fat cells, causing us to feel sick and inflamed.
We also get rid of our extra estrogen through the liver so when Phase 2 gets too slow, women will experience PMS, constipation, and bloating during their cycle. In men, high estrogen levels lead to low testosterone, resulting is a loss of energy, libido, and muscle mass.
Get Rid of Toxins Safely
When you embark on a weight loss program, you are releasing the toxins you have been holding in your fat cells. The release of these toxins creates even more damage inside, as the chemicals being released are actually worse for your health than when they first entered your body. This toxic burden slows your metabolism, and you plateau in your weight loss.
You need to prepare your body for weight loss by first going through a proper detoxification program. Our medical food detox program provides the nutrients needed to safely help the liver get rid of toxins and help you lose weight. It also provides the necessary nutrients to get rid of heavy metals as well. To do a detox correctly and safely, Opp Family Chiropractic relies on products that are proven to be the best and safest for our patients.
