Introduction
  • What is detoxification and cleansing?
  • Why do we need detoxification?
  • Who should detoxify?
  • How do we detoxify?
  • What does a detoxification treatment plan look
    like?

3
Detoxification and cleansing
  • Detoxification involves either clearing toxins
    from the body or neutralizing or transforming
    them.
  • Health and vitality
  • Clear symptoms
  • Treat disease
  • Prevent future problems

4
Toxins
  • A toxin is any substance that creates an
    irritating and/or harmful effect in the body.
  • Water, food, air, cosmetics, products
  • Exposure to chemicals, pesticides, solvents,
    heavy metals, and molds.

5
Why do we need detoxification?
  • Low dose daily exposure builds up in our bodies
    over time.
  • Air
  • Water
  • Food
  • Products
  • Hobbies/lifestyle

6
Indoor air pollutants
  • 1. Dust mites, molds, pet dander, and microbes
  • 2. Asbestos, lead, radon
  • 3. Synthetic consumer products-solvents
  • 4. Second hand smoke
  • 5. Formaldehyde (foam insulation, wood and
    carpet glue, paint preservatives)
  • 6. Pesticides

7
Water
  • Types of water pollutants include
  • Soil run-off
  • Solvents
  • Pesticides/herbicides
  • Heavy metals
  • Nitrates from sewage and fertilizers
  • Hormones
  • Chloroform

8
Food sources Fish
  • Mercury can act as a neurotoxin to the developing
    fetus and adults
  • Mercury concentrations in the blood as a result
    of fish consumption is linked to infertility in
    men and women.

9
Fish high in mercury Wild fish
  • Swordfish
  • Shark
  • King mackerel
  • Fresh tuna
  • Sea bass
  • Canned white tuna(albacore)

10
Fish high in PCBs and Dioxin Farmed fish
  • Fatty fish concentrate PCBs and Dioxin which may
    impair memory and learning in adults.
  • Although fatty fish are a good source of omega-3
    fatty acids so are tofu, soy, canola oils,
    walnuts, and flax seeds.

11
Fish low in mercury and fat
  • Salmon
  • Blue crab
  • Haddock
  • Pollack
  • Flounder
  • Trout

12
Food sources pesticides
  • Pesticides found on foods sitting in the store
    ready for consumption, may affect the developing
    nervous system, cause cancer, and interfere with
    endocrine activity.

13
Most contaminated foods
  • Apples Bell peppers
  • Celery Cherries(U.S.)
  • Imported grapes Nectarines
  • Peaches Pears
  • Potatoes Spinach
  • Red raspberries Strawberries

14
Products at Home
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Cosmetics and grooming products
  • Plastics
  • Detergents and soaps
  • Carpet
  • Pergo

15
Other sources of toxic compounds
  • 1. Pesticides and herbicides
  • 2. Detergents and household products
  • 3. Plastics (food wraps, soda, baby and water
    bottles)
  • 4. Industrial and auto exhaust
  • 5. Dental restorations
  • 6. Animal products, hormone injected animals
  • 7. Cosmetics and grooming products

16
Examples of disrupting compounds
  • Dioxins
  • Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)
  • Bisphenol-A
  • Organochlorine pesticides (DDT)
  • Phthalates
  • Heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium)

17
Dioxins
  • Produced by incineration and combustion
  • Produced by manufacture of chlorine containing
    products such as pesticides and wood
    preservatives and the bleaching of paper
  • Accumulates in human fat tissue and animals high
    on food chain
  • Decreases T4 and T3, and testosterone. Both
    estrogenic and anti-estrogenic

18
PCBs
  • Used as coolants, lubricants, insulation for
    electrical equip, in paints, plastics, dyes and
    rubber. Made wood and plastics non-flammable
  • Accumulates in human fat, food chain and found in
    rivers and lakes
  • Same effects as dioxin plus low birth weight,
    delayed neuro development, low IQ, weakened
    immune system and some behave like estrogen

19
Bisphenol-A
  • A compound found in polycarbonate plastics. Used
    in manufacture of compact disks, plastic bottles,
    lining of metal food cans, and dental sealants
  • Estrogenic influences-binds to ER breast cancer
    cells.
  • Decreases sperm count, increases prostate size.

20
DDT and metabolites
  • An insecticide for agricultural use and
    mosquitoes
  • Estrogenic effects-induce cell proliferation in
    ER breast cancer cells, shortened period of
    lactation, and pre-term births
  • DDE(metabolite) is an androgen antagonist and
    leads to feminization of the male fetus

21
Phthalates
  • Additive to PVC plastics to make them soft,
    flexible and strong. (toys)
  • Carpet backing, paints, glues, insect repellents,
    hair spray, and nail polish
  • Anti-androgenic-prenatal exposure causes
    hypospadias, undescended testicles
  • Suppressed ovulation, estradiol production, and
    PCOS(rat studies)

22
Dont forget
  • 1. Solvents
  • 2. Parabens
  • 3. Formaldehyde
  • 4. Names you cant pronounce-in cleaning
    supplies, soaps, detergents, lotions, shampoos,
    cosmetics.

23
Who needs detoxification?
  • Asthma/allergies Skin Rash
  • Anxiety Fatigue
  • Depression Prostate
  • Cancer Thyroid
  • Immune conditions Fertility
  • Endometriosis Fibroids

24
Signs and symptoms cont
  • Constipation Loose stool
  • Bad breath Indigestion
  • Allergies Headaches
  • Menstrual problems Fatigue
  • Fibrocystic breasts Neuropathy
  • Environmental sensitivity

25
How do we detoxify/cleanse?
  • Determine toxic load
  • Exposure and health history
  • Support our detox organ systems-Functionally,
    poor digestion, colon dysfunction, decreased
    liver function and poor elimination all increase
    toxicity.
  • Follow an individualized detoxification plan

26
Testing for toxic load
  • 1. Exposure history
  • 2. Heavy metal hair analysis
  • 3. Heavy metal urine analysis
  • 4. Solvent and pesticide testing
  • 5. Liver function testing

27
Detoxification systems
  • 1. Gastrointestinal-liver, gallbladder, and colon
  • 2. Urinary-kidneys, bladder, and urethra
  • 3. Respiratory-lungs, throat, sinuses, mouth/nose
  • 4. Lymphatic-lymph channels and nodes
  • 5. Skin-sweat and sebaceous glands
  • Prior to beginning a detoxification program it is
    essential that every detox system is functioning
    properly.

28
Liver
  • The liver excretes hormones such as estrogen,
    cortisol, aldosterone, and thyroxin.
  • The liver detoxifies these and other hormones and
    excretes them into the bile.
  • If the liver malfunctions, toxins and hormones
    accumulate in the body causing disease.

29
Intestinal health
  • Prolonged toxic irritation to the lining of the
    GI tract
  • Nutritional insufficiencies
  • Exposure to bacterial endotoxins
  • All result in unfavorable changes in the
    permeability functions of the gastric mucosal
    lining.
  •  

30
Repair the GI tract The 5R plan
  • 1. Rebalance-diet, nutrition, and lifestyle
  • 2. Remove-any offending pathogen or food antigen
    such as Giardia, Candida, H. Pylori, and food
    allergies
  • 3. Replace-HCL, digestive enzymes, and fiber
  • 4. Reinoculate-probiotics and
  • fructooligosaccharides
  • 5. Repair-nutritional support including
    L-glutamine, pantothenic acid, zinc,
    anti-oxidants, bioflavinoids, essential fatty
    acids, and herbs such as aloe, DGL, and comfrey

31
Elimination
  • 1. Kidneys help excrete toxins and breakdown
    products through the urine.
  • 2. The colon eliminates toxins through the bile
  • 3. The skin and lymph system, through sweating
    and circulating toxins to the organs of
    elimination, assist in detoxification as well.
  • 4. It is important all organs of detoxification
    are functioning properly prior to a detox and are
    included in the overall detox plan.

32
. Detoxification Plan Overview
