What is detoxification?

Detoxification is the process of eliminating harmful substances from your body, improving health and well-being. Your body is exposed to toxic substances like chemicals, heavy metals, and germs every day. They get into your body through your skin, lungs, and digestive tract. 

Your liver and kidneys work hard at getting rid of these harmful substances to keep you healthy and well. But harmful toxins can build up over time. Your fatigue, brain fog, and susceptibility to catching every office cold may be related to the build up of toxins in your body.

Aspen Integrative Medical Center provides detoxification treatments to support your body’s natural elimination process, boosting immune health and wellness.

Am I a good candidate for detoxification?

The naturopathic doctors at Aspen Integrative Medical Center take a personalized approach to care and determine if you’re a candidate for detoxification after an initial evaluation based on your symptoms, degree of toxicity, and ability of your emunctories, aka organs of elimination, to get toxins out through your sweat, stool, urine, and breath.

If you don’t show any signs of impaired detoxification pathways, our physicians will likely recommend an individualized detoxification protocol for you

What happens during detoxification?

Your provider at Aspen Integrative Medical Center customizes your detoxification plan based on your health issues and goals. Your plan may include:

    • Infrared sauna therapy
    • Nutrition therapy 
    • Herbal supplements
    • Hydrotherapy
    • Intravenous (IV) therapy
    • IV chelation (to remove heavy metals)
    • Vitamin and mineral supplements

The goal of detoxification is to stimulate your body’s excretion of harmful endogenous waste and exogenous (environmental) toxins. 

What happens after detoxification?

What happens after detoxification at Aspen Integrative Medical Center varies, but many people report feeling more energized and balanced following their treatment.

The integrative medicine practice teaches you how to create a lifelong plan that minimizes the buildup of harmful substances in your body so you always feel good. This includes following a balanced diet, getting regular exercise, and drinking adequate amounts of fluids.
