A Revolutionary & Concierge Approach To Integrative Whole Body Detoxification
Integrative Whole Body Detoxification Treatments
What Is Detoxification?
Detoxification is the body’s physiologic process of rendering chemicals, compounds, hormones, and toxicants less harmful. The organs of detoxification work efficiently as a whole to reduce the body burden or toxic load of chemicals; they include the liver, kidneys, large intestine, lymphatic system, and sweat glands. In other words, there are well-defined metabolic pathways in the body that are responsible for converting toxins into chemical compounds, making it easy for the body to eliminate them (primarily through the urine or stools). Studies on how drugs are metabolized and cleared from the body have established a good understanding of these detoxification processes.
Of course, detoxification is an ongoing process. Every day, the organs are working to eliminate environmental contaminants that come in from toxic bacteria, pollutants, plasticizers, and heavy metals, to name a few. One of the most common exposures is toxic chemicals from agricultural production (pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers). These exposures commonly occur through ingestion or inhalation of water, foods, and air and from time spent in the home or work environment. Sources of toxicants that can increase the body burden include materials used in new construction, carpet chemicals that can off-gas into the air, paint, household cleaners, galvanic forces in the mouth that result from mixed metals in dental restorations, synthetic materials used in dental products, and even personal hygiene products applied to face, skin, and hair. Air pollutants are found in industrial exposures, primary or second-hand smoke exposure, and auto exhaust. In other words, everyone is continually living amidst chemicals and toxicants in an increasingly toxic society, resulting in an ever-increasing body burden or toxic load of chemicals.
A person’s toxic body burden is a result of three main factors. First, there is the toxicant exposure we each may have received from both internal and external sources, as previously discussed. Second, each person’s genetic predisposition to effectively produce detoxification enzymes for processing these compounds or substrates is unique and depends on familial influence. Last, the integration of proper nutrition and ongoing dietary ingestion of helpful detoxification nutrients or phytonutrients can impact the body’s capacity to appropriately reduce the presence of toxicants and lower the body burden.
The process of detoxification involves many steps. There may be reasons why the body isn’t particularly efficient about clearing toxins. These reasons can be situational, such as having an increased exposure to toxins, being constipated and thus not able to excrete toxins in the stool, being deficient in specific nutrients, eating a nutrient-poor diet, being under stress, having a chronic disease, experiencing excessive inflammation, and not getting enough physical activity or restorative sleep. There may also be genetic reasons, such as having particularly slow enzymes that aren’t efficient in converting toxins into compounds that can be excreted.
The goal of a clinically-directed detoxification protocol is to provide nutritional support for facilitating the pathways involved in the processing and excretion of toxins. A detox program results in improved symptoms and an increased sense of wellbeing for most individuals. Specifically, many who participate in a personalized detoxification program describe improvement in pain and fatigue levels, enhanced cognitive function and moods, more effective and satisfying sleep cycles, and weight loss. Our program provides specific food and nutrition suggestions to optimize the detoxification experience and lower the body burden. The program also offers directions in how to sequence a healthy detox and wellness plan by providing tips on how to get started, what to eat, what to watch for, and how to provide the body with the right nutrients for longstanding, improved elimination and detoxification.

What is detoxification?
Detoxification is the essential bodily function of removing toxins and waste products from your body. Detoxification ‘detox’ also refers to reducing your overall toxic burden. We are all exposed to external toxins( e.g. toxic cleaning products) to some extent and we produce toxins naturally as by-products of our metabolic processes (e.g. respiration). For most of us our main exposure pathways are actually in our own homes – cleaning products, synthetic fragrances, toxic personal care products, toxins in our food supply, (pesticides, chemical additives, BPA, etc.). Internally we produce more toxic by-products as our bodies deal with stress, anger, poor diet, unhealthy lifestyle, alcohol, and caffeine.

What is a ‘detox protocol’?
A detoxification program is a way of supporting your body as it eliminates toxins and waste. A good detoxification program should be gentle and supportive for all 5 major detoxification organs – skin, lungs, liver, kidneys & large intestine. These five organs work together to remove the naturally occurring waste by-products from our metabolic processes as well as the toxins that we ingest (i.e. absorb, inhale & digest).
Skin – eliminates toxins via perspiration including ammonia, urea, uric acid, and some pesticides and heavy metals.
Lungs – rid the body of toxic gases and volatile chemicals, e.g. when the liver neutralizes alcohol, acetaldehyde is created and then exhaled as a gas.
Liver – is the main detoxification organ. It filters toxins (mainly fat soluble) from the blood and excretes them into bile, other types of toxins are chemically altered by the liver so that they are either neutralized or converted into a form that the kidneys can filter.
Kidneys – filter toxins (mainly water soluble) out of the blood and excretes them into urine, including: urea produced in the liver, ketones from the breakdown of fat, drug residues, and hormones.
Large Intestine – binds toxins (including hormones) and bile for excretion via feces.
Will I lose weight if I detox?
What can I expect after the detox program?
After a detox protocol many people experience greater mental clarity, fewer headaches, less anxiety, improved digestion, improved energy levels, reduced or eliminated cravings, and that they sleep better.
You may not feel very well while undertaking a detox protocol – especially at the beginning if you are breaking unhealthy patterns and dealing with addictions (caffeine, sugar, etc.). If you are feeling intolerably unwell, stop the protocol and talk to you medical practitioner.
What Are The Therapies For Detoxification?
When we think of detoxification, we might not think of nutritional support. However, detoxification can result in improved symptoms and an increased sense of well-being for most individuals. The therapies for detoxification can vary depending on the needs of the patient. Therapies can include clinically directed treatments, fasting, excluding certain foods from your diet, cleansing the colon, and so forth.
While we can take action and seek specific therapy for detoxification, we should note that detoxification is an ongoing and natural process the body undergoes. Our body is constantly working to eliminate environmental contaminants that come in from toxic bacteria, pollutants, plasticizers, heavy metals, and more. Detoxification with Reveal Vitality works to peel back the layers of your life, identify toxic burdens and ways to lead a healthier life.
Three main types of toxic burden include:
- Toxicant Exposure: These can be received from both internal and external sources.
- Genetic Predisposition: We all have genetics and should know as much about them as possible. Genetic predisposition helps us effectively produce detoxification enzymes for processing these compounds or substrates, which is unique and depends on familial influence.
- Proper Nutrition & Ongoing Dietary Ingestion: Proper nutrition is important during detox. And after detox, too.
What Medication Is Best For Health Detox?
Holistic detoxification focuses on natural ways to detox the body. While drug and alcohol detoxes are often supported by medication to reduce the severity of the detox, a holistic health and wellness detox usually does not use medication. To determine what is best to detox your body of toxins, start with a comprehensive health assessment at Reveal Vitality.
What Are The Symptoms Of Detoxing?
Drug and alcohol detox can come with severe symptoms, but detoxing from toxins should not. While you may feel your body going through changes, symptoms should be manageable. Symptoms can include fatigue, mood swings, hunger, and so forth, depending on the type of detox you undergo. If you have any concerns about the symptoms you are experiencing, contact your doctor as soon as possible.
What Are The Five Organs Detoxification?
During the detoxification process, there are five main organs involved.
The results of detoxification generally shine through in the way we look and feel, but there are benefits we can’t directly see or feel as well. Remember that all of our organs work together to support our total health. How we look and feel is one of the best ways to personally assess our well-being. Detox or not, you should try to stay in tune with your body and let it tell you what it needs. Try setting aside a few minutes at the least every day to sit and breathe or stretch or do an activity that allows you to look inward. To learn more about your body and ways you can naturally promote good health, contact Reveal Vitality. We work with patients to deliver holistic, comprehensive care to identify ways to feel better and look better naturally. We all have different genetics, different daily demands, and different physical states. Our team of experts will work together to assess your unique situation and get to know you in order to make the most effective recommendations.
How Can I Detox My Body In 24 Hours?
Some prefer to detox regularly, and some need to detox with only 24 hours. While this may not be the most effective way to detox, it can help you feel better. While detoxing from hard substances or substance abuse in only 24 hours may not be possible, you may be able to rid the body of some toxins in 24 hours. To do so, eat very lightly and drink plenty of fluids. Herbal teas and distilled juices can aid in the process. To make distilled juice, use 1 part juice with 1 part water. Yoga or exercises such as twisting to relieve tension can also help aid in the detox process.
If you are trying to detox to simply feel better, you can try meditation, breathing exercises, simply moving the body, and eating healthy in combination. While detoxes can help you feel better, it’s best to incorporate healthy lifestyle changes into your daily routine. Find ways to create balance so that you can sustain a healthier lifestyle.
What Is a Detox Ritual?
Detox rituals consist of a variety of activities taken in sequence or together to help detox the body. Examples can include massage therapy, detox baths, infrared heat, and more.
What Are The 2 Phases Of Detoxification?
Detoxification is much more complex than fad diets, cleanse pills, or temporary ways to rid the body of toxins. While we cannot permanently detox, we can utilize therapies that are more effective. While detoxification can be complex, one way to simplify it is to think of it in two main phases.
- Oxidation: The first phase of detox is to break down the toxins and transform them into less harmful water-soluble molecules to be removed from the body. Getting the molecules out this stage as quickly as possible to avoid inflammation and tissue damage.
- Conjugation Pathway: Phase two entails getting these toxins ready to exit the body through bodily fluids like urine or bile. Certain nutrients can help activate and encourage phase 2 of detoxification. Taking advantage of nutrition counseling or a clinically-supervised detoxification program can help you identify the gaps in your diet that may be causing you to hold onto harmful toxins in the body.
What Is The Difference Between A Cleanse And A Detoxification Program?
Cleanses and detoxification programs can both work to help individuals feel better. However, they are different. A cleanse usually focuses on digestive health. A detoxification program usually focuses on a systematic approach to toxin removal. A detoxification program is usually clinically directed, whereas cleanses are usually at-home, self-monitored programs. If you’re receiving nutrition counseling, your doctor may recommend a cleanse, but they typically will not direct the cleanse.
