Healthy Gut

The digestive system is responsible for breaking down and for the absorption of micro/macronutrients necessary to sustain, regenerate and repair the body. It is also the powerhouse of most of the body’s immune system, thus a healthy gut leads to a strong immune system. The digestive system is also one of our main detoxification organs. It absorbs the nutrients required for the body and eliminates both intrinsic toxins – toxins or byproducts produced by the body and also aids in the elimination of extrinsic toxins – toxins absorbed from the environment. The function of our digestive system is affected by several factors such as stress, food sensitivities/allergies, and from medication side effects. An imbalance in the digestive system leads to several chronic diseases, therefore healing the gut should be the first step in treating most chronic conditions. Our highly skilled practitioners will guide you through this program by helping you identify and remove any food sensitivities/intolerances. Additionally, the program is focused on reducing inflammation and helping to replace healthy gut flora. Nutritional supplementation and enzymes may be suggested if the individual is deficient with the goal of the program to regenerate injured tissues and to optimize nutrient absorption and waste elimination. What conditions can benefit from the Healthy Gut program? Below are a few examples of conditions that can be treated by improving the function of the digestive system: Constipation, Diarrhea, Gas/bloating, Heartburn or acid reflux, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Candida, Celiac Disease, Gluten and/or Lactose Intolerance, Joint Pain, Leaky Gut, Skin Conditions (acne, eczema, psoriasis, hives, etc)

Healthy Detoxification

If yes, then this may be a sign that your body’s own detoxification pathways are sluggish and overburdened. The Healthy Detox program educates patients on various types of toxins and their impact on the body. It focuses on the two types of toxins: Exogenous Toxins: the external toxins that enter our system through consumption of food, water, the air we breathe, and the things that our skin comes in contact with. Endogenous Toxins: internal toxins naturally produced in our bodies through various metabolic functions and also by the bacteria and other microorganisms residing in our digestive system (1). The goal of the Healthy Detox program is to reduce overall body burden aka chemical load. “Body Burden simply refers to the total amount of chemical toxins present in the human body at any given time (1).” Body burden is influenced by two factors: (a) total exposure to toxic chemicals and (b) the body’s ability to eliminate these toxins through detoxification pathways (1). Body Burden = Total amount of toxic exposure – Body’s ability to eliminate toxins This program also teaches patients how to effectively eliminate toxins by optimizing the function of the organs of detoxification, such as the skin, lungs, liver, digestive system, and urinary system. In addition to the physical systems of detox, the program also involves emotional detox, which focuses on the removal of toxic energy and learning stress management strategies to improve the overall positive energy in life.
