Why do I need to detox?
Your body has the exceptional ability to naturally detox or eliminate the substances that can cause harm and lead to illness. Your liver is the first line of defense as it breaks down toxins and sends them out of your body. However, many other systems support the liver, including your gut, lungs, kidney, and lymph system.
Problems arise when any of your body’s built-in detox systems become overwhelmed or damaged and can’t do their jobs. Then your overburdened body can’t clear all the harmful substances, and you start to get sick.
You’re constantly exposed to contaminants that block your body’s detox systems, such as:
- Alcoholic beverages
- High-fructose corn syrup
- Heavy metals
- Cleaning products
- Metabolic wastes
Your diet also affects your body’s ability to successfully detox. For example, you need to consume enough fiber to keep your large intestine free of wastes and toxins.
What symptoms indicate I need to detox?
Many symptoms that arise when you need to detox are generic and easily confused with everyday illnesses. You may experience one or more of the following.
- Brain fog
- Mood changes
- Muscle aches
- Joint pain
- Sinus congestion
- Bloating and gas
- Fluid retention
Dr. Baginski systematically evaluates all your symptoms until he gets to the root cause of the problem. Then he recommends the most appropriate detox.
What type of detox might I receive?
When you get a detox treatment from Dr. Baginski, you’re not simply taking a supplement; you receive therapy that supports your body. He offers:
Chelation safely removes heavy metals using a medication that attaches to the metal and carries it out of your body. The most common heavy metals — lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and chromium — are commonly found in the air, water, and soil. Once in your body, they accumulate in soft tissues and become toxic.
Glutathione is one of the strongest antioxidants naturally produced in your body. It’s also essential for detoxifying harmful substances. During glutathione therapy, you receive a therapeutic dose of glutathione through intravenous (IV) infusion.
IV restoration therapy
IV restoration therapy delivers vitamins, minerals, and other substances that support your metabolism, liver, and other detox systems.
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy
PEMF therapy uses safe electromagnetic waves to boost blood flow and stimulate your body’s ability to fight infections and heal.
If you generally don’t feel well and you’d like to get to the bottom of the problem, call the office of Leon Baginski, MD FACOG, or schedule an appointment online.
