Detoxification, Rejuvenation & Regeneration
We offer holistic purification therapies to assist the body to eliminate toxins and drug residues and thus improve the benefits of the NAD IV Therapy, reduce relapse rates and improve the physical & mental health of their clients.
Below are sections describing each therapy we offer. Be sure to visit our page which describes our NAD IV Program.
When residues are circulating through the blood and lymph the body shunts them into cells, especially those which are least important, namely fat cells.
As with other cells, these residues cause the activity or metabolic rate of fat cells to decline. This is why weight gain and therefore weight loss is so difficult to deal with.
Most of these toxic-burdened fat cells are just under the skin called the subdermal fat layer and the easiest way for these residues to exit is through the skin.
Saunas are the supreme purification therapy to sweat out these toxins, this being a more efficient and effective way compared with detoxifying them internally through the other detox pathways (liver and kidneys).
The benefits of our walk-in dry sauna versus the infrared is that heat to the skin is superficial while infrared penetrates deeper and causes toxins to be released into the body.
We want them to be flushed out through the skin and not flushed internally.
One way to synergize the benefits of the steam sauna is alternative with a cool shower. Our shower stall right next to the sauna has a large overhead bucket which is automatically filled with cold water. Pull the rope and experience a cold waterfall.
Hot sauna, brief cool shower, hot sauna, brief cool shower, etc.
With external heat the body directs blood to the skin, attempting to cool the body.
Since external heat is high in the sauna sweat pores eventually open with the idea that sweat will evaporate and cool the body.
When a person steps out of the sauna and enters a cool shower the body’s response to cold is the opposite to heat.
With cold, blood is shunted to the body’s core attempting to warm it and at the same time to oxygenate it.
This alternating hot and cold has two distinct benefits.
When reentering the sauna after the cool shower the body will shunt this oxygenated blood back to the skin and a new surge of toxins will be released.
The other benefit is that some people cannot tolerate too much heat so the intermittent cool shower helps the person to continue with sauna therapy for a longer period of time.
Saunas are one of the most important and beneficial therapies we offer to support clients with their recovery..
Toxic residues are found in three separate fluid compartments within the body; inside our cells, in our blood stream and in the fluid which bathes all our tissues called the lymph or extracellular matrix.
The primary purification therapy to drain this lymph fluid is Lymphatic Hydrotherapy, sometimes referred to as Constitutional Hydrotherapy.
This is an old time Naturopathic treatment which has been practiced in Europe and the United States for over 50 years.
It is a simple and highly effective therapy using the application of hot and cold compresses to the chest and back along with sine wave stimulation which causes muscles to gently contract and relax while activating the lymphatic pump.
During and after this therapy lymph fluid drains through two channels into the blood stream with toxins then being cleared by the liver and kidneys.
Most people’s lymph system is like a swamp and Lymphatic Hydrotherapy helps drain this swamp so it becomes like a river. This improves the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to tissues and the extraction of toxins from tissues.
It’s one thing to assist cells to release toxic residues but if these toxins are simply dumped into the swamp of the lymph they will never be completely cleared from the body.
Colon Hydrotherapy & Gut Ecology
Jay Pashrika, M.D., director of the John Hopkins Center for Neurogastroenterology recognizes the inherent relationship between the brain and what’s called the Enteric Nervous System or 2nd brain consisting of more than 100 million nerve cells lining the gut.
There is a direct feedback mechanism between the brain and the gut with each influencing the other.
Therefore gut health is essential for brain health and vice versa.
Improve gut health and you improve the workings of a highly intricate and sophisticated brain.
If these gut neurons are not functioning optimally due to accumulated residues and toxins this will negatively impact brain hormone production.
Ask anyone suffering from an overgrowth of yeast or Candida in the gut often due to the overuse of antibiotics. Their most common frustrations are brain fog, apathy and mood swings.
There is also the good gut bacteria known as the microbiota. A great deal of research has focused on the relationship between this microbiota and brain neurotransmitters.
In 2013 Gastroenterology published a research article by Dr. Mayer. Using brain scans to monitor responses to various stimuli the group which ingested probiotics to improve gut microbes had greatly improved brain chemistry experiencing less anxiety and depression.
It makes common sense then if we can decrease the population of yeast, parasites and bad bacteria in the gut, we will feel better physically and mentally.
If we also excrete and detoxify chemical residues from this Enteric Nervous System this would also improve our health.
There’s another important thing to mention related to residues in the intestines.
Remember, toxic residues are found in the body, lymph and cells.
When our cells excrete these residues they enter the lymph which then dumps them into the blood stream.
This means that all residues coming from our cells and lymph must be broken down and filtered out of the blood by the liver.
These metabolized toxins from the liver then pass into the gall bladder which makes them more water soluble.
From the gall bladder they pass into the small intestines and must travel the entire intestinal tract.
Some of these toxins will be absorbed back into the body, so the faster we can move them through the intestines the better.
All the above are the reasons why Colon Hydrotherapy along with appropriate supplements is one of the main keys to recovery.
Daily treatments along with other purification therapies ensure the decreased risk of relapse and the recovery of health and vitality.
To summarize, here are the purification therapies we offer.
1. Lymphatic Hydrotherapy
Move and drain the lymph. We’ve got to clear the toxins from the lymph so cells and tissues can more easily excrete their internal toxic residues.
2. Colon Hydrotherapy
Remember that toxins in the lymph flow into the blood stream and are then processed by the liver and dumped into the intestines. We therefore need to get the toxins to exit as quickly as possible to prevent re-absorption.
Colon Hydrotherapy is the second step in clearing toxic residues from the body.
The sauna alternating with cool showers will sweat out toxins stored in fat cells.
Each of the above therapies takes approximately one hour.
