Important Things You Must Know about Liver Detox

My guess is most all of you have heard of doing a liver detox or a liver cleanse before. It's such a common thing to hear that some people have even begun to roll their eyes any time a cleanse of any sort is advised. As of late, there's been a great deal of debate concerning the role of detoxification (or cleanses) for health. There are a number of people who talk about cleanses and detoxes as if they're quackery and not needed; after all, we have built-in filtering mechanisms which take care of the detoxification process for us.In a sense, they're correct.

One Of My Favorite Low Cost Supplements Of All Time

If you've ever been to our office, then you know we have a store where we offer our patients a wide variety of supplements at a low cost. Now I think this should go without saying, but I feel the need to emphasize the following:None of the physicians who practice in our office set off on a journey of becoming a doctor just so they could sell supplements. Seriously, when we began medical school, and went through residency, rotations, and all that good stuff it wasn't just so we could sell a handful of supplements to our patients.We just want to see people get better, and because we have an aversion to relying exclusively on pharmaceuticals to manage sickness, we advise supplements to correct issues from...

Without This Mineral, You’ll Die Early

When it comes to minerals, some are more important than others. It’s just a fact of life. What I’m not saying to you is others aren’t important.  But some really are more important. Think about it this way. If you’re driving a car, side-view mirrors and a rear-view mirror are needed to drive safely. But, if you needed to drive and didn’t have those equipped on your car you could make do. It would just make things a little tougher. Same thing with a windshield. You could drive without a windshield. You might be picking bugs out of your teeth a week after you drive, but you could make it work. But can you imagine driving a car without an engine?...

Part 2 of “Is Detoxing Overrated?”

Click here to access my 3 Part Series on Detoxification Part 2 In the last article you read, you learned about toxins and why you should consider detoxing. You also learned that your body already does a fair amount of detoxification on its own but isn’t always cut out to take care of the more than 80,000 industrial chemicals that exist in the world today. The truth is your body acts in absolutely stunning ways as it uses your skin to protect you from toxins and uses organs like the kidneys, liver and lungs to expel them. But, while I’m at it, I’m going to give you a bit more doom and gloom before I move into the good news I have...

Is Detoxing Overrated? Pt 1

Click here for access to my 3 Part Series on Detoxification Part 1 Have you heard of detoxing before? If you have, what did you think of when you hear the words “detox program,” or “cleanse”? Did you automatically think of a toxic sludge pool with a large fence around it complete with big, yellow, bio-hazard signs? Or did your mind go somewhere else… maybe to a 4 day green juice cleanse, a bit of yoga and massage, and finally some transcendental meditation? My guess is, no matter what you think about detoxing, you don’t know the full story on the power of a detoxification plan, or why they’re so important for optimal health. In this series, I’m going to tell you all...
