What Is Integrative Medicine?
(Return to "What is Integrative Medicine?")
Detoxification - Fact. The foods you eat can actually make you feel worse. Most foods we purchase today are wrapped in plastic and contain low residues of pesticides; meats have growth hormones, antibiotics, and pesticides. Big business and industry have brought our country many great things. However, they have also brought us environmental toxins. The air that we breathe, the fillings in your teeth, skin creams, paint dyes, batteries, seafood, and tap water can and do contribute to the toxicity of our bodies. Depression, memory loss, asthma, fatigue, anxiety, neurological disorders, heart disease, impaired kidney function, weight gain, gastrointestinal problems, and a weakened immune system can all be attributed to a body that has a heavy load of toxins. You didn't become toxic overnight, and the detoxification process can take months. However, this process can add life to your years and maybe years to your life. Jump-start your new, healthy lifestyle, and help your body begin to work more efficiently by detoxifying.
