In this day and age, as toxins pile up in our environment and we are exposed to an unimaginable avalanche of chemicals, EMF’s, food additives, GMO’s and the like, many of us are facing health challenges that are unexplainable. We go from doctor to doctor, searching for answers to relieve our many uncomfortable symptoms, only to be handed a prescription for medication, or to be told that there is nothing array. What is going wrong?
Think of your body as a bucket. Now imagine the toxins that surround us in daily life are the liquid that slowly fills that bucket. With each toxic exposure, drop-by-drop your bucket becomes more full. A drop here and there isn't such a big deal, as our immune systems were designed to handle a degree of toxicity. However, chronic exposure to an onslaught of chemical, physical and emotional stressors sills up your bucket each day, and at some point the bucket begins to overflow. It may take a few decades before your bucket spills over, but once it does cellular inflammation is triggered, symptoms arise, and disease manifests.
The 5R’s of True Cellular Detox & Healing
R1 - Remove the Source – We need to determine which toxic sources (heavy metals, biotoxins, environmental toxins and/or toxins inside your home) are causing body-wide damage. When identified, these sources can then be safely ushered out of the body using my crafted protocols.
R2 - Regenerate the Cell Membrane – In healthy individuals, the supple bi-lipid fat layer of the cellular membrane allows both nutrients to flow inside easily and toxins and free radicals inside the cell to leave unimpeded. If inflamed, nothing can come in and nothing can come out, so our cell becomes a toxic wasteland. Inflammation can also compromise our cell’s ability to function properly and truncates our ability to “hear” the hormonal impressions through the hormone receptors that reside on the outside of the cellular membrane.
R3 - Restore Cellular Energy – As nutrients flow into the cell, they feed the powerhouse called the mitochondria, which produces ATP (energy). Without adequate production of ATP, our cells are unable to detoxify or regenerate properly.
R4 - Reduce Inflammation – (NO/ONOO Cycle) – Toxic inflammation is produced from 3 main sources: over-consumption of refined sugar and grains, bad fats and toxins from food sources, cosmetics, air pollution, toxic cleaning products and more. Needless to say, inflammation and oxidative stress can wreak havoc and is at the root cause of all disease processes that we see in our office.
R5 - Reestablish Methylation – The body needs methyl groups to turn stress hormones on and off, if depleted, our body stays in a constant state of stress. In addition, if our methyl groups are non-existent or in short supply, the important roles they play in detoxification, DNA protection, hormone metabolism and epigenetics are unable to be performed.
