What does a detoxification treatment plan
look like?
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
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.
Why do we need detoxification?
• Low dose daily exposure builds up in our
bodies over time.
• Air
• Water
• Food
• Products
• Hobbies/lifestyle
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
Water

Types of water pollutants include:
Soil run-off
Solvents
Pesticides/herbicides
Heavy metals
Nitrates from sewage and fertilizers
Hormones
• Chloroform
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.
Fish high in mercury
Wild fish
•
•
•
•
•
•
Swordfish
Shark
King mackerel
Fresh tuna
Sea bass
Canned white tuna(albacore)
Fish high in PCB’s and Dioxin
Farmed fish
• Fatty fish concentrate PCB’s 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.
Fish low in mercury and fat
•
•
•
•
•
•
Salmon
Blue crab
Haddock
Pollack
Flounder
Trout
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.
Most contaminated foods
•
•
•
•
•
•
Apples
Celery
Imported grapes
Peaches
Potatoes
Red raspberries
Bell peppers
Cherries(U.S.)
Nectarines
Pears
Spinach
Strawberries
Products at Home
•
•
•
•
•
•
Cleaning supplies
Cosmetics and grooming products
Plastics
Detergents and soaps
Carpet
Pergo
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
Examples of disrupting compounds
•
•
•
•
•
•
Dioxins
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s)
Bisphenol-A
Organochlorine pesticides (DDT)
Phthalates
Heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium)
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
PCB’s
• 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
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.
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
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)
Don’t forget
•
•
•
•
1. Solvents
2. Parabens
3. Formaldehyde
4. Names you can’t pronounce-in cleaning
supplies, soaps, detergents, lotions,
shampoos, cosmetics.

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

5.
Gastrointestinal-liver, gallbladder, and colon
Urinary-kidneys, bladder, and urethra
Respiratory-lungs, throat, sinuses, mouth/nose
Lymphatic-lymph channels and nodes
Skin-sweat and sebaceous glands
• Prior to beginning a detoxification program it
is essential that every detox system is
functioning properly.
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.
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.
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 Lglutamine, pantothenic acid, zinc, anti-oxidants,
bioflavinoids, essential fatty acids, and herbs such
as aloe, DGL, and comfrey
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.
