Detoxification Protocol

Our Detoxification Protocol has 3 distinct phases. The program takes around 5 weeks to complete and entails a detailed list of foods and drinks you should avoid for the process. 

Step 1: Reducing Toxic Load + Supplements

The first step is to open up detox pathways, decrease inflammation, and supply your body with needed nutrients. If any constipation, this step will take longer. You should be moving your bowels daily for maximum removal of toxins. Constipation is very complicated and may be due to motility disorders, hydration, nutrients, etc. It is best to inform us if you are not moving bowels regularly (daily) so we can help you get things moving!

 

Your kidneys are also very important detoxification pathways and are easily damaged by toxins. Maintaining good cellular hydration and reducing inflammation is necessary to protect your kidneys. ​Pekena​ is a natural herb that helps repair kidney damage from inflammation, increases blood flow, and removes toxins.

Limit your current toxin exposure and decrease inflammation. Clean air, food, and water are foundational for health.

  • Clean Food​: Eat organic, especially foods from the Dirty Dozen. Avoid processed foods, fast foods, and eating out. See the food list below to follow while detoxifying.

  • Clean Air​: You can easily check the quality of your indoor air with an Indoor Air Monitor. This will check for Radon, Volatile Organic Compound (VOCs), moisture (Mold conditions), and micro dust particles. If high levels, we recommend investing in a quality air purifier that will remove all including mycotoxins.

  • Clean Water:​ Berkey Water Filters are the best for removing almost all water contaminants – 99.99%. Click ​here​ for further information about the bacteria, toxins, and viruses that are removed. ​The Black Berkey filters have been tested by several EPA-accredited laboratories including the Department of Toxicology and Environmental Science at Louisiana University, Spectrum Labs, and the University of Phoenix. This extensive testing confirmed that the Black Berkey Purification Elements far exceed EPA and ANSI/NSF (Std. 53)​ protocol.

  • It is also very important to evaluate your personal care products, cleaning products, etc., and start replacing them with organic, non-toxic products

 

**Don’t rush this step! Take your time to make sure that your detox pathways are open/prepared and you are working to reduce your toxic load.

Step 2: Phase III Detoxification Pathways

Once detox pathways are open and functioning well, the next step is to work on Phase III detoxification pathways. This is supporting bile flow by the removal of toxins out of the liver. ​Bitters​ such as gentian, dandelion, etc. will stimulate bile movement.

  • Phosphatidylcholine.​ Your cell membranes are made out of Phosphatidylcholine, and it is also an integral contributor to proper bile flow. A constant source of PC is needed.

  • Binders​ ​are necessary to block the reabsorption of toxins that are carried by bile. Binders such as charcoal and clay remove almost all toxins.

    • Start with ​UltraBinder​ at 1⁄2 strength (1⁄2 tsp) for 3 days and then increase to full strength (1 tsp) for 4 days. To remove toxins slowly, prior to pushing even more out of your cells, you will need to take a binder.

  • After 1 week of taking Binders consistently, add ​Liver Sauce ​to push toxins out of the liver. Continue the Binders at full strength to remove released toxins from your body. Liver sauce contains highly bioavailable products such as a bitters mix, phosphatidylcholine, immune modulators to decrease MAST cell activation; Nrf2 upregulation, and hepatoprotective factors.

  • Within 15—30 minutes, the Liver Sauce components will peak within your blood, activating all of the detox pathways, while also stimulating bile flow. Therefore, you should then ​take the UltraBinder 30 minutes after the Liver Sauce. ​Must also take Ultrabinder at least 30 min prior to eating or wait 2 hours after eating.

    • Start at 1⁄2 dose (1⁄2 tsp) of the Liver Sauce and then increase as tolerated to full strength (1 tsp) to deepen the detoxification. This can be done once or two times a day.

● Once you are up to full strength of the Liver Sauce and Binders, continue for 1 week and then proceed with Step 3.

Step 1: Phase II Detoxification Pathways

● Continue Liver Sauce and Binders at full strength for an additional week
