Is a Detox Right for Me?
By Dr. Veronica Neumann
The term “detox” has become quite popular in today’s society. Many people inquire about doing a detox when they want to lose weight, but there are so many other reasons to complete a detox. People that have symptoms like fatigue, mood changes, digestive issues, skin irregularities, hormonal imbalances, and headaches, may benefit from a detox. These symptoms can often be vague without a clear source. If this is happening to you, your body may need a “spring cleaning.” There is no better time than now to detox- the sun is out, and your body has the energy to clear out potential toxins and build-up.
Food and environmental allergies, dietary triggers, heavy metal exposure, lack of sleep, chronic stress, and various medical conditions can contribute to inflammation and immune dysregulation in the body. The effect of these factors can be reduced with an appropriate detox protocol. There are many detoxes advertised online, but it’s important to do an individualized, medically supervised protocol. Dr. Veronica is here to help! She evaluates each patient’s history, lifestyle, and environment while also running necessary labs to determine the best and safest way to detox. Dr. Veronica’s detox protocols often consist of dietary modifications, exercise regimens, herb and supplemental support, stress management techniques, and acupuncture.
