Are You Experiencing Toxic Overload?

We are all exposed to toxins in the foods we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink. In addition, we produce toxins within our own bodies in the processes of digestion and elimination, combating disease and infection, and dealing with stress. Did you know that each year more than four billion pounds of toxic chemicals are released into the environment and can be absorbed and accumulate in the body, impacting our overall health. But we are not just finding toxins in adults. Health News references a 2005 study that cited environmental toxins found in the umbilical cords of newborns. Of the 287 contaminants detected in newborns' umbilical cord blood, 180 can cause cancer in humans and animals, 217 are known to be dangerous to the nervous system and brain, and 208 can cause birth defects in animals.

How do I know if I am experiencing symptoms of toxic overload?

A number of symptoms and conditions have been associated with possible toxic exposures and toxicity, including:

Muscle aches and pains
Joint pain
Allergy or flu-like symptoms
Chronic fatigue
Irritability, brain fog, mental confusion

What is Detox?

Detoxification is the elimination from the body of toxins that we are exposed to externally from environmental sources and internally from products generated by ongoing normal, daily cellular processes. At CCWM we will choose a safe detoxification program that is right for you. You will be under the supervision of a healthcare professional who will ensure your best results.

How will I feel on the Detox Program?

For people who follow a healthier lifestyle, most feel more energetic, enjoy a decrease in joint pain and are much more alert, to name a few benefits. For those individuals who consume an unhealthy diet and are exposed to environmental toxins, symptoms may occur as their bodies attempt to eliminate these toxins. Almost all the symptoms experienced during a dietary change are due to the body's efforts to detoxify itself as rapidly as possible! Once this process is complete, they enjoy the same benefits from the detoxification program.

Once I finish with my Detoxification Program, how do I minimize future exposures to toxins?

Prior to completing your Detoxification Program, speak to one of our healthcare professionals about participating in our Therapeutic Lifestyle Program in order to learn how to continue your journey to good health and the prevention of chronic disease. Comprehensive Center for Women's Medicine provides an advanced line of detoxification support formulas and programs to help people eliminate these toxins and stay healthy.
