Detoxification

Our body is exposed to different toxins in their day to day routine. It can be produce by a living being, a chemical, the environment even with a physical activity, upon contact with it.

Our habits over-expose us to toxic agents: smoking, alcohol, drugs, labor agents, viruses, fungi, bacteria and parasites for chronic infections.

Fortunately, our body was designed to defend itself and has the specific ability to eliminate toxic agents through different systems and excretory organs, the main one being: the liver. The liver has multiple number of functions directed specifically to eliminate toxins in the body.

Toxicity is the ability of a chemical to produce detrimental effects on a living being upon contact with it 

“Toxicity is the ability of a chemical to produce detrimental effects on a living being upon contact with it” 

As a toxin enters our body the spread can be sudden or gradual; however, there are certain types of toxic agents the body is not able to eliminate without generating deadly damage.

Our body needs specific support to fight against toxins and the best way to obtain it, is through an optimal diet. Our body needs certain nutrients at its cellular level to fight against toxins, one of them being: cancer.

Detoxification 

The term detoxification in traditional medicine is typically reduced to situations of either substance abuse or environmental factors. For some reason we take the body’s ability to eliminate toxins or detoxify as a rule, even within the presence disease.

In traditional oncology, toxicity is limited to situations where either the body damage is excessive or the treatment cannot be carried out by intolerance. Common symptoms of this toxicity are: nausea, vomiting, laboratory alterations that reflect alterations in the function of systems and organs, hair loss, weight loss, destruction of plasma cells, to mention a few.

Detoxification and Cancer

Cancer develops at our body´s cellular level, when a patient is suffering from this disease you can find a large amount of toxins such as: waste, dead cells and pro-inflammatory agents, among others.

Once, the disease starts to spread our body is not healthy enough to fight it or eliminate the toxins through the liver and the different excretory systems. When a patient turns to conventional treatment, such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, there is a high percentage of side effects, one of them are high toxicity agents, causing more complications in the patients’ health.

The combination between the toxicity of the treatments (external) and toxicity created by disease that wasn’t eliminated (internal) compromises the integrity of patient resulting in the rapid decline of their physical state. The damage and complications can be passing, severe or even permanent.

Detox Process

Detoxification is a cardinal step in the management of cancer and any other chronic degenerative disease. Our detox process begins with a proper evaluation of the systems and organs responsible for the detoxification (elimination of toxins), to see if they are functioning in the expected manner and have the proper support to fulfill their objectives.

Our first step is merely nutritional, after we define the possibility of using specific tools for the manipulation of organs and systems related to this purpose, as well as therapeutic tools that could better counteract such toxicity.

  • The metabolic manipulation of the liver for a better elimination of waste, ensuring the presence of substrates necessary to increase the excretion function by this organ.
  • Ensure that the elimination functions by the digestive and urinary organs are given in an adequate form and frequency.
  • Skin is an organ part of the elimination, we see this typically through sweating, so we can make use of therapeutic interventions that activate these systems for this purpose.

FAQs

Contrary to the belief that a full-scale hospital with such prestigious reputation will be very expensive, patients that have decided to get our treatments constantly tell us that the one of the main reasons they decided for us over others, is our straight-forward affordable price without any sneaky pricing gimmicks or up sales. Once you receive our treatment quote, that is final, and we won’t try to up sale or pressure you into anything you’re not comfortable with.

The treatment price varies for each patient, mainly because each patient’s needs, and medical circumstances are very different and require different attention. Once our doctors receive your medical information, they will assess your medical needs and if an outpatient plan is an option, this will be presented to you, saving you the costs of an in-hospital stay while still getting the same treatment you would as an in-patient.
