This Is What You Need To Do To Detox

It is that time of year when everyone is thinking or talking about detoxing. Some people like to do fasts, others juice cleanses. Everyone’s heard about the Master Cleanse, that’s the one where you drink water mixed with lemon, cayenne and maple syrup. A lot of doctors actually think the the Mater Cleanse is dangerous as it doesn’t give the body the nutrients it needs to support it. While you detox it’s important to nourish your body and support your liver function.

What if I told you that you could detox without adhering to a special diet?

That sounds good, right? Well, you can actually. You can detox easily and effectively while you continue to eat a balanced diet. Of course you should still eat a clean diet, with hormone free and chemical free proteins and organic fruits and vegetables. It goes without saying that you should also avoid sugar and processed foods while you are detoxing.

How can you detox in a safe, healthy way without starving yourself or depriving yourself of key nutrients?

One way to do it is by using homeopathics to detox. The HVS Homeopathic line was created 30 years ago by Dr. Kratz. His formulations are designed to rid your body of toxins at a cellular level. Each formulation is prepared with five potencies in a pure water base, totally harmless for your body and without side effects.

It was after Allen Kratz, PharmD explored the depths of both conventional and complementary medicine that he developed a therapeutic line of formulas to eliminate harmful substances from the body such as heavy metals, chemicals, parasites, molds and tobacco. Down the road these toxins may contribute to health problems.

How do homeopathics work?

The homeopathic line from Kratz is made up of individualized formulas called Detoxosodes. It works under the assumption that the “toxin” in the formula will affect the body by “training” it to recognize the harmful substance and ultimately purging it. The formulas contain small amounts of the substance that have been targeted for elimination.

The usual protocol is to take the Detoxosode for about two weeks to clear the unwanted substance and return your body back to homeostasis.

Dr. Kratz also designed Adaptosode and Biosode homeopathic formulations to serve as a support system while you detox. The Adaptasode formulas are also used for relief of fatigue, weariness, and to assist your body systems while purging these nasty invaders. The Biosode formulas are designed to support cell regeneration during this process.

The formulations created by HVS can be chosen to customize a cleanse.  Click Here for a complete list of HVS Detoxosode formulas.

If you suspect you have toxins or parasites that are at the cause of your symptoms it’s a good idea to take a home test to get to the bottom of what unwanted organisms are in your system. Click here for the compete line of Doctors Data  and Genova at home tests.

Lower your Exposure to Toxic Chemicals in Your Home

Last month President Obama signed  legislation which will overhaul the nation’s archaic, 40-year-old toxic chemical rules.  Due to loop holes in the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act, there’s at least 64,000 chemicals used today, which have not been tested for safety.

How Soon Will Testing of Toxic Substances Go Into Effect?

In a nutshell, these 64,000 existing chemicals will be subject to safety testing for the first time. Sound like a step forward? Critics say the changes will not happen fast enough. The testing will include 20 chemicals at a time with a deadline of seven years per chemical.

This is far too slow to limit our exposure to toxins found in everything from children’s toys to household cleaners. Even more surprising is that the new legislation doesn’t cover pesticides used in food production. 

A coalition of doctors, scientists and health advocates have joined together to launch Project TENDR; Targeting Environmental Neuro-Developmental Risks. They released a statement today in Environmental Health Perspectives calling for aggressive regulation. Their goal is to protect citizens from neurotoxic chemicals by increasing regulation and testing of toxic chemicals before they are approved for use. BrainThey argue “why should we wait until chemicals are deemed unsafe before they are banned.” “Most chemicals in use today were not adequately tested for safety before being allowed on the market,” states  Dr. Jeanne Conry, an obstetrician-gynecologist and member of the TENDR coalition. 

Their combined research has shown that exposure to toxic chemicals may cause long term damage to the brain, especially during children’s critical development periods and during fetal development. 

What Can you Do to Reduce Toxic Chemical Exposure?

  • Minimize your pesticide exposure by choosing organic produce when possible. Refer to the 2016 Dirty Dozen List.
  • Drink plenty of fresh, clean water to flush your system. If you don’t know what’s in your drinking water check out the EWG Guide to water testing companies in your area. Consider adding a countertop water purifier to ensure fluoride, lead and other contaminants aren’t in your water. These toxic chemicals have been shown to have endocrine disrupting effects in children and elderly. 
  • Buy furniture without flame retardant chemicals
  • When choosing flooring check to make sure it’s phthalate-free vinyl flooring. Choose wood, bamboo or cork as alternatives.
  • Avoid any plastics that contain polyvinyl chloride (PVC) which can be a source of phthalates. These include toys, backpacks, lunch boxes, food containers and school supplies. Avoid plastic for storing food and invest in glass containers. 
  • Choose fragrance-free personal care products to avoid phthalates in fragrances.
  • Avoid toxic cleaning products; everything from toilet bowl cleaners to laundry detergent can be loaded with toxic chemicals. Many cleaning products are available without toxins. Consider making your own with vinegar, lemon and baking soda.
  • Use nontoxic pesticides in your yard and on pets.
  • Screen your house for lead. If your house was built prior to 1978 chances are high that there is lead paint on the walls. If you think you may have had exposure consider taking the Genova Lab Toxic Element Profile test. 

    You can detoxify on a daily basis by adding PerfectPass Immune Support to your diet. The green component of our formula consists of barley grass, alfalfa leaf, spirulina, wheat grass and oatgrass. These greens are considered powerhouse grasses that clean up our toxins and repair damage. They are most effective for detoxification and aid in removing heavy metals from  the body.
