Detoxification is recommended 1-2 times a year - preferably in the Spring and Fall. A detoxification protocol can last from 1 week to 2 months depending on your health goals. Dr. Emina generally recommends a 28-day detoxification program and encourages anyone to have a medically supervised detoxification if you've never done one before. Detoxification involves dietary and lifestyle changes that reduce the intake of toxins while improving elimination. External toxins include: alcohol, smoking, pesticides, tobacco, heavy metals, medications, oral contraceptives and specific foods in our diet. Internal toxins include normal metabolic by-products and excess hormones that build up and are recycled in the body if a person's organs of elimination (skin, lungs, gut, liver, kidneys) are sluggish, impaired or diseased.
A Naturopathic detoxification program accounts for the individual and their health concerns in a way that many over-the-counter detox kits do not. Dr. Emina will review your health profile and incorporate a plan that may include: a guided diet cleanse for the month with recipes, a medical detox food, supplements to support the organs of elimination (such as the liver), weekly Intravenous therapies, and Infrared Sauna.
Advanced Detoxification for fertility complications, cardiovascular health (high cholesterol, etc.) and chronic disease (Autoimmine disease, Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism, etc.) may include heavy metal testing and chelation therapy to remove the underlying heavy metal toxicities contributing to these health concerns.
