Detoxification Q & A

What is detoxification?

Detoxification is your body’s process of getting rid of toxins. In your body, a toxin is any substance that’s capable of causing harm when absorbed. Many substances are considered toxins, but they only pose a risk to your health in high amounts. 

Toxins come from a variety of places, including processed foods, environmental pollutants, and synthetic chemicals present in many personal care and cleaning products. Your liver and kidneys are designed to filter out toxic substances, but these vital organs can become overloaded. Fortunately, the team at The Miami Center for Holistic Healing can help.

When should I consider detoxification?

When toxins build up in your body, they become poisonous. This can lead to a host of symptoms, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Memory and concentration problems

If you experience any of these symptoms or are thinking about detoxification for any other reason, talk to an expert provider at The Miami Center for Holistic Healing.

What types of detoxes are available?

The professionals at The Miami Center for Holistic Healing are available to guide and support you through a variety of detoxes, including:

Heavy metal detox

Long-term exposure to heavy metals, including mercury, lead, and arsenic, can be toxic. Your holistic provider may test a sample of your blood, hair, or urine to measure heavy metal levels. Then they recommend the most appropriate detox for your needs. 

Liver detox

The liver plays an important role in your body’s natural detoxification. A poor diet high in processed foods and excessive alcohol consumption can cause the liver to work too hard, which may lead to disease. The team at The Miami Center for Holistic Healing provides liver detox support to help you successfully cleanse your liver. 

Surgery recovery detox

After surgery, medications and a lack of physical activity can lead to a wide range of problems. A surgery recovery detox at The Miami Center for Holistic Healing helps your body get back on track so you can heal optimally.
