Drainage and Detoxification
Drainage and detoxification is the first step in managing stress and illness.
From the natural medicine point of view, diseases are the result of the body’s reaction to toxins. Toxic burdens might block the normal metabolic reactions which the body needs to combat stress. This can endanger the life, quality, and function of the cell. This means that messages from one body system to another will be obstructed, inhibited, or changed with system deregulation that might influence the proper functioning of the cell.
Diseases are the result of the body’s reaction to intoxication
We are constantly bombarded by environmental pollutants found in the air, food, and water. As a result of toxicity caused by these pollutants, we can develop a variety of symptoms including;
Stored toxins will remain in your body connective tissue matrix until removed and our drainage and detoxification system was carefully formulated to promote total body detoxification. Our system will drain and detoxify your liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs, and your skin. We have combined homeopathic medicines into to a unique cleansing, drainage and detoxification system. The concept is simple; detoxify and drain the body of all unwanted toxins and fortify the body with nutrients to facilitate weight loss and maintain good health
What is drainage and detoxification?
Drainage means to take toxins and bring them over to the venous bloodstream. The liver and kidneys are the main organs that detoxify the body. Although the skin has some detoxification capacities, its main function is protection against and excretion of toxins. In the same way the internal skin (mucosal membranes) has a similar function.
Organs of detoxification
Detoxification through the kidneys
The kidneys directly excrete water soluble toxins which are mostly organ waste products, some chemical substances, and heavy metals in the daily production of urine.
Detoxification through the liver
The main detoxification organ in the human body is the liver. Fat soluble toxins that are presented by the bloodstream to the liver will be metabolically shifted to water soluble toxins to be presented to the kidneys that will excrete them urine.
Detoxification through the skin
Although the skin is the first place the first barrier of protection for the organism, we should not forget the drainage (excretion) and detoxifying capacities of this tissue. We often see that heavily intoxicated people in drainage and detoxification therapy react on the level of the skin with rash, nightly sweating, foul body odors, etc…
In more advanced detoxification, specific skin detoxifying and draining medications will be taken into consideration. This is also the case when treating skin diseases or diseases that have progressively evolved from a skin disorder.
Mucosal membranes and MALT
The barrier function of the skin is comparable to the function of the mucosa internally. The mucosal associated lymphatic tissue (MALT) is hugely present at the mucosal level. The MALT functions as a barrier to control and check incoming substances. By activating defense cells the mucosal membranes with their MALT play a crucial role in detoxification of the body.
Most toxins will be found in the extra cellular matrix. Due to their size, kind or structure, most of them will be transported over the lymphatic system from the matrix to liver and kidneys.
After detoxification of the liver and kidneys, toxins can be excreted out of the body. However, if the lymphatic system is not functioning well, the kidneys, or liver will create a huge intoxication in the body within a short period of time. This is why when we drain and detoxify we need simultaneous lymphatic support to avoid overload of toxins at the level of these crucial organs. We then combine this strategy with nutritional support to strengthen the body and the results are a healthier and more energetic individual.
