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 supportcell 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.

Candida Albicans – here’s the scoop you need to know.
I remember back in the early days of Ecology Medical Clinic, which was the predecessor to Ecology Health Center, Dr.Truss had just recently published his then controversial opinion about what he called ‘systemic candidiasis’. In that we had been working in the realm of ‘functional medicine’ yes, way ahead of our time – every patient who came in to the clinic had an evaluation with several practitioners, the medical doctor, an acupuncturist, a homeopath, an allergy specialist and if needed a holistic dentist. Collectively, we came up with an evaluation and treatment plan for each individual.
The correct CPT diagnosis code to be used for many of our patients was Systemic Candidiasis. The patients’ insurance was billed and pretty soon we were flooded with many rejections from the insurance companies saying that systemic candidiasis would not be covered in the light of the review of the patients’ chart notes. To the insurance companies, at that time, this diagnosis would refer to people on their deathbeds, covered from head to toe with incurable fungal overgrowth.
A lot has changed since the 80’s. Candida is still something that many physicians choose to ignore as a true condition however, for those of us involved in complementary medicine, this is an important part of any differential diagnosis, particularly because the symptoms associated with candida overgrowth covers many systems within the body from brain fog and headaches, to bloating and vaginal infections – you name it, it can possibly be that those symptoms all over their bodies, all relate to overgrowth of yeast in the body.
Patients have an extremely hard time overcoming candida for many reasons.
Firstly, how severe is it? In other words, how diligent do you have to be to get rid of it. And secondly, what methods are you going to use to get it under control? The second question opens up a huge can of worms because each practitioner that the patient consults with will tell them something different.
Who are they to believe? And then, the truth be told, even I, as a ‘seasoned’ candida treatment coordinator, may use several different approaches and choice of treatment protocols, depending on the individual patient.
One of the challenges with herbal and nutritional options is that some strains of yeast will respond better to certain anti fungals than others, and of course certain individuals will do better with herbs than others, again depending on the first question I posed, ie how severe is the condition.
One approach that I use consistently and find very reliable is using homeopathic remedies as part of the treatment protocol. King Bio has formulated a protocol using 4 combinations homeopathic remedies that are very effective. It goes hand in hand with people literally confirming their own diagnosis by taking the Candida Overgrowth Appraisaland the Saliva Test to find out if you have the telltale signs of Candida overgrowth. The Saliva test was shown on Dr Oz’s show, on May 28, 2013. Even he thinks it is a valuable tool to assess candida overgrowth. You can tell how much I admire Dr Oz, right?
So yes, you do the test, and the assessment and follow through with the remedies based on what you find out. Then you redo the test and continue with the protocol of using the 4 combination remedies, based on the test results and how you feel.
Many symptoms of Candida overgrowth are addressed by King Bio’s Aquaflora homeopathic remedies, These include yeast infections, thrush, nail fungus, confusion, headache, dizziness, indigestion, fatigue, bloating, food cravings, stomach pain, and skin irritations.
What homeopathic remedies do is activate the body’s natural healing powers by following the law of similars, which says that “like cures like.” Even today, this is considered a recognized pharmacological principle.
Why do I like using Homeopathics? They are very safe. You know that in the 200 odd years of clinical use, homeopathic medicines have no recorded negative side effects and also no negative interactions with other drugs. In fact, homeopathic s were the first of all natural remedies to be recognized by the FDA as pharmaceutical drug products.
Here are the four Aquaflora, King Bio Candida remedies:
1. High Potency 9 – this is a broad-spectrum remedy used for Candida balance and relief of yeast overgrowth, headaches & cravings. Dr. Frank King thinks that this the foundational product for Candida balance.
2. Enzyme Restoration. This combination is used for upper GI balance from the mouth to the stomach. It focuses on relieving unpleasant digestive symptoms like heartburn, vomiting, colic, reflux burping, acid indigestion etc.
3. Probiotic Restoration. This one is used primarily for balancing the lower GI tract, from the stomach to the bowels. The remedy may also be used between meals to ease bloating, nausea, cramps, diarrhea and constipation.
4. Heavy Metal Detox. This homeopathic combination targets heavy metal toxicity, which often accompanies Candida overgrowth. It provides relief for symptoms like a metallic taste in the mouth, fatigue, and also confusion.
I like using this particular remedy combination from King Bio. They use multiple ingredients in multiple potencies. The clinically-proven ingredients and potencies are able to minimize negative side effects and quickly bring the body back into balance.
It’s interesting to note that High Potency 9 includes remedies that provide emotional support as well. Included are 3 flower remedies that help balance the feeling of well-being during the healing process. I love the way they are made as well. All the remedies have no dairy, no sugar, no alcohol and no gluten. and of course, no refrigeration is necessary. The remedies are also Bio-Energetically Enhanced™, taste-free and made in a pure water base. The pleasant, neutral flavor is a great asset when treating kids. It eliminates any resistance from finicky children. It also caters to taste-sensitive adults.
3 of the 4 recommended homeopathics formulas have a Unique spray delivery system. The 2-ounce oral spray bottles are very convenient to use. You’re able to control dosage and easily use for people of all ages, eliminating the need for dropper bottles or tablets.
I might add, at this point, that I have never found a way to successfully treat candida overgrowth without a conscientious change in eating patterns at the same time.
