JANUARY 2014

  

It's a new year and it's time for our Easy 3 Step Detox Initiative! Once per year, we at InnerMovement promote and also participate in a full 21 day Detox that includes 3 easy detoxifying steps. 

 

Step 1 focuses on eliminating inflammation, pain, stress & lethargy by following the "Eat Clean" diet full of fresh vegetables, fruit, lean protein, healthy oils, nuts & seeds. In Step 1, we avoid all processed foods, gluten and dairy products, alcohol, caffeine, sugar and refined oils. You won't believe how good you will feel once you're your system is free of this "junk". Step 2 begins on day 7 of the "Eat Clean" diet, by adding nourishing meal replacement protein shakes and detoxifying herbal supplement packs. Step 2 is a thorough 14 day detoxification program designed to eliminate toxic buildup in the liver, gallbladder, kidneys and colon. This step jump starts weight loss, decreases allergies and prevents toxic buildup from making you sick! Step 3 begins on day 21 (the completion of the detox) focusing on restoring intestinal balance and maintaining the high energy state of health you have just created with the Easy 3 Step Detox.

Because of the high levels of toxicity in our environment along with the damaging effects of our high sugar, processed, chemically ridden food supply, I highly recommend every patient commit to some form of thorough detoxification at least once per year.  I have not found a detox program that patients love more or with as many clinical benefits as the Easy 3 Step Bio-Detox Program. Take the time to read more, get educated and decide for yourself.  Included with our 3 Step Detox, we offer a gentle Aqua Detox Program which is also available as a solo treatment for patients in need of a gentler form of detoxification. 

 

To aid my patients throughout the detox program, I have made myself available by email or phone to answer any questions you may have. Simply click the "Ask Dr. Heidi" link on our website homepage or call our office. 

 
Until our next adjustment...
  
Yours in Health,

Maintaining Health & Vitality in A Toxic World:
 
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), over 35% of the food

tested in 1998 contained pesticide residues. 53 pesticides classified as "carcinogens" are presently registered for use on major crops, including apples, tomatoes, and potatoes.

Additionally, more than 10,000 additives are added to our food supply that weren't there 50 years ago. In fact, an average American eats about 142 pounds of additives a year. There is no doubt about it, we do not live in a pristine world. In today's world of processed foods and environmental pollution, toxic substances exist almost everywhere. And as a society, we are all exposed on some level, and its making us sick! That is why I encourage each of my staff, family members and patients to do a complete, medically managed 3 week Detox at the start of each year. Without elimination, these stored toxins may be slowly released into the blood, contributing to many chronic illnesses.  Our 3 Week Detox is formulated with a meal replacement, nutrient dense, detoxification beverage, along with detoxifying herbs in easy to use daily packs that cleanse the liver, gallbladder, kidneys and colon while eating a simple but effective Detox diet. It also includes bi-weekly Aqua Detox Footbaths, to further eliminate toxins making it the most thorough detoxification program on the market. That is why we recommend our Detox Program over many self administered, over the counter brands. Because most of us are not only toxic but we are also vitamin and mineral deficient, the Easy 3 step Detox with daily shakes and clean, nutrient rich diet, along with detoxifying herbs, serves to nourish the body as we cleanse, giving energy and restoring vitality while ridding our bodies of harmful toxic buildup.

Take the first step... fill out our Bio-Toxicity Self Assessment Test to find out if toxic buildup is happening to you.

How Toxic Are You?


Biotoxicity is the accumulation of toxins in the body as the result of exposure to certain biological sources. Biotoxins can impair the functioning of the human musculoskeletal system and nervous system. 

 

Signs & symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Joint Pains
  • Fatigue
  • Allergic Responses
  • Immune Weakness
  • Depression
  • Constipation
  • Sinus Congestion
  • Chronic Back Pain
  • Blood sugar problems
  • Skin conditions
  • Hormonal problems

The painful symptoms of biotoxicity and neurotoxicity are similar to the symptoms of a variety of other medical conditions, such as fibromyalgia, migraines or chronic headaches, depression, chronic fatigue, recurrent or chronic sinusitis, or other conditions that are unresponsive to conventional therapy. The symptoms of biotoxicity can also mimic those of some autoimmune diseases.
