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.  

It is important that you are working with a health care practitioner to guide you in this process. Call us and we can recommend which formulas are right for you. The homeopathic line of HVS Detoxosodes are only available by phone oder.

If homeopathics are not right for you Garden of Life has a great one week Raw Cleanse Kit.

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.

How To Get the Most Out Of Your At Home Gut Test.

A yearly gut test is a really good idea if you want to know things about what resides in your gut. Your gut health is the most essential component to disease prevention and longevity.

What's in your gut?Your immune system lives in your gut, and most importantly your body’s ability to produce hormones is affected by your gut. Essentially you need to make sure it’s running properly before you have any symptoms. That’s why a yearly gut test ought to be done as a check up. 

A great test to take for yearly maintenance is the Doctors Data Comprehensive Stool Analysis Test.  or Genova Labs’ Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis.

Maybe you have constipation, gas, bloating, brain fog, diarrhea or chronic stomach pain. This could be due to a bacteria, yeast or a fungal overgrowth, or maybe even a parasite that you picked up on your travels. A gut test will also indicate that you may have a bacteria imbalance and need more good bacteria. We suggest Genova Comprehensive Parasitology or Doctors Data Comprehensive Parasitology Test. Both companies offer similar labs.

If you’ve already had a gut test and found your good bacteria levels to be low you may have started taking prebiotics and probiotics. If it’s been at least three months since you’ve been taking them, now is a good time to recheck.

You want to make sure that your probiotics are working to bring in more good bacteria and it’s actually taking up residency in your gut. A gut recheck ought to be a way to ensure that you’re taking the right probiotic for you and also let you know if you need prebiotic fiber to fertilize the probiotic.

If your previous assessment results have shown that you have candida, and you followed a protocol and change of diet, you can retest to make sure the protocol has worked and the candida is under control.  At this point you will know if you should continue with the protocol.

Do you know that there is a specific parasite test? There’s a great one from Genova Diagnostics. 

If you tested positive for parasites you most likely followed a protocol to cleanse the digestive tract and then recolonized your gut and strengthened your immune system. Once the treatment protocol is finished you need to retest to ensure the parasites are gone.

Parasites: How do I know If I Have Them?

How to Get Rid of Parasites

A good gut healing diet, and the use of probiotics  to improve the health of digestive flora will assist in the eradication of parasites. Liver support  is also crucial because when the liver is congested bile and toxins are often pushed back into the stomach injuring the cells of the stomach lining. This makes the lining more susceptible to damage from pathogenic microbes such as H. Pylori that can cause non-stress induced ulcers. Candida overgrowth is another problem due to parasites such as H. Pylori.

Determining if You Have Parasites

Common symptoms of parasites are stomach pain or cramping, lack of nutritional absorption, rapid weight gain or loss, nausea, vomiting, headaches, migraines, sinus issues, fatigue, depression, anxiety, joint pain, and lack of mental clarity. As you can see these symptoms are often consistent with those of candida overgrowth, so how do you know what the true culprit is?

Parasites are able to hide. This can be elusive when testing for them. Many tests can come up negative when, in fact, there is a parasitic problem. The home-tests by the laboratories of Genova, Diagnos-Techs, and Doctors Data are among the most accurate. They all carry a Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology Test. 

Genova Labs grows out the strains of bacteria to find what the strength of it is and then offers natural solutions. A result sheet is sent to you with a number scale. This scale tells you the strength of each strain, then several natural products are tested against those strains of bacteria that came up. The sheet tells you what specific natural product or products would work best to eradicate your particular problem. The best option is given per individual.

These tests are superior to many other tests that often do not detect all of the pathogens. They are simple to do from home, and can be purchased online without any doctor’s appointment needed. A variety of different types of tests are also available to fit any possible additional needs.
