      From the chemicals used in growing, preparing and storing our food to water and air pollution, toxins are entering our bodies at an exponential rate in today’s world. While it can seem impossible to avoid toxins completely, it is possible to limit your exposure and explore methods – both ancient, time-tested methods and cutting-edge approaches – that can be used for Detoxification.

      The ultimate, personalized protocol for safe, effective Detoxification is what you will find with Dr. Gail Ravello and her team at Natural Medical Solutions Wellness Center. If you are ready to experience a new level of holistic wellbeing, embark on your personalized Detoxification journey by calling us today at (770) 674-6311 or contacting us online.

      What is Detoxification?

      Detoxification involves the removal of toxins from the body to improve health. It can involve removal of toxins from our immediate environment or food, or it may involve a process of cleaning the body of toxins it has already absorbed and stored over time. Methods for detoxification range from ancient practices like fasting to modern approaches using detox supplements.

      Fad detoxes and cleanses may be all the rage – with celebrities touting their favorite method or brand - but the idea of Detoxification as an approach to healing has been around for centuries. Both traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda in India use detoxification methods. Fasting, or limiting foods on certain days, is also part of many ancient and modern religions.

      The use of water to cleanse tissue throughout the colon, called “colon lavage,” has been practiced since as early as 1500 B.C. in ancient Egypt. At Natural Medical Solutions Wellness Clinic, we call it Colon Hydrotherapy, and it’s just one of many modern and ancient methods we can employ to successfully detox your body.

      What Types of Toxins Are Most Dangerous?

      We are subjected to toxic substances daily - from the pesticides in food to the pollutants all around us in air, water and substances we come into contact with (dryer sheets, cigarettes, chemicals sprayed on clothing or bedding, etc.) Most people are not even aware how everyday products we use and everyday things we do can contribute to our level of toxicity.

      Among the worst toxins are heavy metals - including arsenic, lead, mercury, and cadmium. These metals can enter our bodies in ways we may not recognize, ranging from tap water to pesticide residue or even silver fillings. While we are subjected to heavy metals each day, an even more serious aspect of the problem is that they gradually build up and wreak havoc in the body.

      Toxic chemicals can cause both acute (immediate) and chronic (long-term) effects, or even both. For example, if your work involves inhaling or even just coming into skin contact with high levels of solvents, you might at first experience simply a headache that goes away. Over time, however, you may develop long-term, possibly permanent damage to your liver or kidneys. Chronic health consequences may also include effects on the immune, nervous, or reproductive systems – or even cancer.

      Sometimes – with especially potent toxins or ingestion of a large amount of toxins - acute poisoning can occur, with symptoms ranging from allergic reactions to digestive disturbances, and even death.

      What Conditions Can Benefit from Detoxification?

      Naturopathic doctors offer treatment to all patients for any disease state – and Detoxification can benefit almost any medical condition. However, some conditions are caused by toxins and can resolve quickly if the toxin load is reduced or eliminated. There are other medical conditions that are exacerbated by the inflammation that comes with toxicity in the body.

      Some of the many conditions treated by a personalized Detoxification protocol may include:

      With allergies, for instance, Dr. Ravello begins with a blood test to detect food allergies or intolerances since the test will show adjustments needed in diet and detoxify the liver. Toxins cause inflammation and inflammation thwarts function of the body’s immune system. In addressing whole-body health, Dr. Ravello’s goal is to correct what might otherwise involve cascading medical ailments sharing a root cause.

      Detoxification is not only used as a treatment for medical conditions. Perhaps more importantly, Detoxification can serve as a preventative measure to forestall the development of diseases like breast cancer. Especially if you have a family history of a condition that could be prevented with Detoxification, it may be important to consult with Dr. Ravello to develop a Detoxification protocol just right for you and your personal and genetic risk factors.

      How will my Detoxification Plan Be Developed?

      At Natural Medical Solutions Wellness Center, Dr. Ravello takes a comprehensive holistic approach to health, focusing not just on relieving symptoms, but helping the body heal whatever is unwell at the root level – as well as preventing illness.

      Your medical plan, along with all treatment approaches are personally tailored to your health needs. – factoring in physical, social, psychological, family and genetic factors. We may employ any of the following treatment options:

      • Testing and treating medical conditions that may be underlying your condition

      What can I expect in a Detoxification consultation?

      Dr. Ravello focuses on treating the individual, not just the disease or its symptoms. During the initial consultation, she asks questions and pays close attention to behavioral and physical symptoms, as well as things like particular personality traits or your emotional state. It is normal for a physician who specializes in both Homeopathic and Naturopathic health to ask questions about your personal life.

      Upon arrival for your initial consultation, Dr. Ravello will review your personal and family medical history. She may also ask you questions regarding your current symptoms, stress factors and lifestyle habits. She typically performs a physical examination and may possibly order lab work, but she will discuss with you what is needed and why she believes it is necessary.

      Dr. Ravello has a deep understanding of functional, homeopathic, naturopathic, integrative and conventional medical approaches. Determining the most natural, least harmful treatment method to restore wellness and optimize your health is always her goal. She looks for root causes and seeks to understand what exactly is not functioning properly and needs to be addressed.
