Do you know what's in your body? Learn the signs of toxin buildup and what you should be doing to address it.


Detoxification is a common buzzword in health circles nowadays, but what does it mean and should you be doing it? The answer is yes—but only if you’re doing it right. Lots of people nowadays are turning to quick fixes like three or five day cleanses to try to purify their body, but those types of programs don’t allow the liver to fully process the toxins and remove them. Instead, cleanses and diets can lead to even more health problems.
Traditional Chinese medicine understands that the key to detox is supporting your body’s natural functions through your whole system. One way to do this is by understanding the meridian cycle. In TCM theory, different organ systems become active during different times of the day, and so it’s important to time your efforts to best work with your body.

Wondering if you're in need of a detox?

Because your body naturally eliminates toxins through digestive processes and sweating, signs of toxic buildup are often found in issues with these areas. For example, constipation and acne can both suggest an excess of toxins in the body.

If you’re interested in learning how you can remove these toxins from your body, read about the 21-Day Purification Program. It’s the program our acupuncturists recommend to patients looking to purify their bodies. The 21-Day Purification uses whole food supplements with organic ingredients to assist the body’s natural ability to detoxify, allowing your body to cleanse itself.

Here at Healing with Zen, we provide guidance through a healthy, effective detox with the 21-Day Purification Program. Our patients have been thrilled with the results they have achieved with us through this balanced and well designed program. To learn more about how you can start your Purification, talk to your acupuncturist at your next visit. If you’re a new patient, you can schedule an initial appointment with us here.
