Detoxification Q & A
What is detoxification?
Detoxification is the process of removing toxins that can build up in your body and lead to pain, discomfort, and other ambiguous symptoms. Be The Change Health & Wellness Center offers detoxification services as well as testing for toxins in your body.
The practice offers ion foot detox, a treatment that pulls toxins out of your body through the soles of your feet. These toxins can come from the products you use, chemicals in the air, and foods or substances you consume.
During your detoxification treatment, you sit comfortably with your feet submerged in purified water with sea salt for about 30 minutes, while the IonCleanse detoxification system removes impurities.
Your provider places an electrical unit called an array into the water, which generates positive and negative ions around your feet to draw out the toxins.
When should I consider detoxification treatments?
Your body collects toxins as you go through your day-to-day life, even from behaviors and substances that seem completely harmless on the surface. Thanks to toxins like alcohol, sugar, nicotine, pesticides, heavy metals, smoke, and other chemicals, you can experience unusual symptoms that seem to appear without a cause.
Sometimes, toxins come from within. Your body produces natural hormonal by-products that can also contribute to toxin buildup in your system. Over time, you might notice symptoms like:
- Dark undereye circles
- Joint pain or swelling
- Skin changes
- Musculoskeletal aches and pains
While there are many possible causes of symptoms like these, toxins can play a major role in causing or worsening them. You should talk to your provider at Be The Change Health & Wellness Center if you have concerns like these that seem to appear without explanation.
What are the benefits of detoxification?
A series of detox sessions with the IonCleanse system can lead to a reduction in various symptoms that often stem directly or indirectly from the toxins that have built up over time in your body. You might experience other general wellness benefits of detoxification as well, including:
- Weight loss
- Increased energy
- Improved sleep
- Better circulation
- Skin clarity
- Fewer allergy symptoms
- Better immunity
- Better digestion
When you come to the office, your provider might recommend detoxification as a stand-alone treatment or as part of a larger, comprehensive personal wellness plan.
