Detoxification Q&A

What is detoxification?

A toxin is any compound or substance that can cause harm when absorbed by your body. There are many toxins in the environment, in foods, and in products. 

Some of the most common sources of toxins include:

  • Environmental pollutants
  • Processed foods
  • Personal care products
  • Cleaning agents

Your body is an efficient detoxifier. The kidneys and liver are designed to filter out substances that could be harmful or overload your system. But, when these organs are compromised by toxins, they can’t do their detoxification jobs efficiently. Fortunately, we have solutions for this problem. 

Optimizing liver function is critical for hormone balance. The liver participates in the metabolism of multiple hormones including thyroid, cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. 

How do I know I would benefit from detoxification?

A build-up of toxins in your body can lead to unpleasant symptoms, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Bloating and gas
  • Headaches
  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting
  • Trouble breathing
  • Memory and concentration problems

These symptoms can be a sign of other problems, including food intolerances or hormone imbalances. It’s essential to seek medical support from a holistic practitioner like Dr. Rich-Mazzeo, to get at the root cause of your symptoms. 

She can rule out other causes and help you detoxify with diet, supplements, and other lifestyle interventions.

What is involved in detoxification?

Dr. Rich-Mazzeo customizes your detoxification program according to the likely toxins. Your detoxification protocol might include:


Heavy metal detoxification

If you’ve had long-term exposure to compounds like mercury, arsenic, or lead, you need detoxification to get these heavy metals out of your system. Heavy metals can enter your system through water, pesticides, some foods, and tobacco. Chelation therapy and certain supplements can help detoxify heavy metals from the body. 


Liver detoxification

Dr. Rich-Mazzeo can help optimize liver function so it more efficiently detoxes your body. If you follow a diet high in processed foods and/or consume excessive alcohol, your liver may need some support. A liver detox effectively cleanses your liver so it can work optimally. 

Dr. Rich-Mazzeo offers other detoxification programs that help you overcome food intolerances, chemical imbalances, and more. Call today, or use this website to request your free Introductory Call.
