Detoxification Q & A

What is detoxification?

There are two types of medical detoxification:

Drug detoxification

If you have a substance abuse disorder or addiction, your body needs to go through a withdrawal process. That involves relieving the physical and psychological effects of addiction by reducing your intake of the substance to which you’re addicted.

An important element of withdrawal is getting rid of all the traces of drugs in your system using detoxification techniques.

Detoxification for wellness

Detoxification for better health and wellness aims to eliminate harmful substances from your body, such as:

  • Pollutants
  • Synthetic chemicals
  • Heavy metals
  • Processed foods

Your body naturally eliminates toxins via your liver, along with the kidneys, lungs, digestive system, and skin. However, these organs need to be in peak condition to work efficiently. Lifeguide Healthcare’s detoxification therapies help to optimize organ function so you can flush environmental toxins from your body for improved overall health.

What does detoxification involve?

Drug detox requires expert care to manage your withdrawal symptoms and prevent medical issues arising as your body adjusts to sobriety. You might also need medication to help you recover from certain drug addictions. Once you’re over the initial withdrawal, you can benefit from the same types of detoxification therapies that help with general wellness.

Lifeguide Healthcare offers several detoxification treatments:

IV detox

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a way of getting essential vitamins, minerals, and other health-giving substances directly into your bloodstream. Lifeguide Healthcare has a range of IV therapies available to help with detoxification, including Myers’ cocktail and glutathione push injections.

Cocoon Wellness Pod

The Cocoon Wellness Pod is a unit that fully encompasses your body. It has various functions that help with detoxification, including dry and infrared heat, massage, salt air, and aromatherapy.

Classical herbs

Herbs that have detoxifying effects include valerian root, stinging nettle, cilantro, milk thistle, dandelion root, and ginger, to name a few.

Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a holistic approach to wellness that takes account of every influence on your health. Ayurvedic therapies can help to remove deep-seated toxins from your body.

What else can I do to get the best results from detoxification?

To achieve the optimal result from any detoxification program, you need to look at your current lifestyle and make changes that promote better health. These could include:

  • Limiting alcohol consumption
  • Quitting smoking
  • Getting enough good quality sleep
  • Drinking more water
  • Eating fewer processed foods
  • Decreasing salt intake
  • Eating antioxidant-rich foods
  • Getting more active
  • Using prebiotics

In combination with Dr. Agbeyomi’s expertise in detoxification therapies, these measures can rid your body of harmful toxins and have you brimming with health. To find out more, call Lifeguide Healthcare today or book an appointment online.
