Integrative medicine recognizes detoxification as the first important step in restoring the body to a natural, balanced, healthy state. While the amazing human body naturally removes most of the harmful things we may encounter- the toxic load may accumulate over years of eating less-than-nutritious processed food, drinking alcohol, using personal care products or cleaning products full of chemicals, and exposure to pollutants. This burden of potentially harmful substances can take its toll on an otherwise healthy person.
National Integrated Health Associates has devoted an entire area to detoxification at the integrative medical and dental center in Washington, D.C. The Detoxification & Rejuvenation Center has state-of-the-art detoxification therapies that can be used to enhance your natural detoxification and promote health and overall wellbeing.
Classic colon hydrotherapy, or colonic, is a gentle, low-pressure internal cleansing of the large intestine. Colon cleansing is an ancient hydrotherapy, used as early as 1500 B.C. by the Egyptians for the purpose of restoring healthy bowel function and removing excess waste. Colon hydrotherapy should be done under the guidance of a qualified therapist. It may provide relief from health issues including constipation, bloating, asthma, fatigue, skin rashes, acne, allergies, fibromyalgia and headaches.
The detox footbath is another cleansing therapy using water for a detoxifying effect. This state-of-the-art bio-energy charger uses a direct current to concentrate energy into the footbath water for an invigorating, detoxifying effect. The ionization works to naturally pull toxins out of the body through the pores of the feet. This therapy helps in restoring energy, increasing vitality and detoxification.
Massage therapy is an ancient therapy known for enhancing the flow of body fluid, reducing muscular tension and promoting relaxation. Through the manipulation of muscles, ligaments and connective tissue, massage creates a total sense of wellbeing and is effective for combating and relieving stress and body pain.
For guided comprehensive detoxification, an individualized treatment plan can be developed by a physician using many of the state-of-the-art detoxification therapies and other options such as IV therapies, and supplements to help you achieve your wellness goals.
