Medical Grade Nutritional Detox Programs
Toxins are found in the food we feed our families, pesticides are sprayed on the vegetables we eat, hormones and antibiotics are pumped into our cattle, and chemicals are in the water we drink and the air we breathe. We are constantly exposed to these things every day of our lives and it is our body’s job to filter these harmful elements out. After years of this, our bodies become soaked with these chemicals and toxins and they can alter the way we act, feel, and look. Food sensitivities are becoming more and more common in our children and diseases like diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease are reaching epidemic numbers and we have to stop and ask ourselves why? Here are some disturbing facts that have been collected in recent research:
- According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, more than 4 billion pounds of chemicals were released into the ground in 2000, greatly affecting our nation’s water supply.
- Over 260 million lbs of chemicals were discharged into lakes, rivers, and oceans.
- Nearly 2 billion lbs of air emissions were released into the atmosphere.
- Several thousand food additives are intentionally added to our food, and thousands more slip into our food supply accidentally during harvesting, processing, and packaging.
- The average American consumes about 124 lbs of food additives a year!!!
- Over 400 pesticides and herbicides are currently used on food crops, and every year over 2.5 billion lbs are dumped on crop land, forests, fields, and our lawns.
So these are just a couple good reasons why a detox program is beneficial to our bodies. The detox programs that Drs Collin and Alorna Dolan provide at their Aurora, IL office are scientifically designed to support both phases I and II detoxification activities in the body and help our vital organs like the liver and kidneys remove these stored toxins from our bodies. This specific program offered at Dolan Family Chiropractic is medically guided and tailored to each patient based off a health appraisal questionnaire. This program includes private appointments with the doctors throughout the process, personally made shopping lists and tasty recipes from Dr. Alorna’s own kitchen that are both healthy and delicious. Nutritional recommendations will be made at the end of the detox program that will help you continue to eat healthily and minimize harmful toxins and chemicals from getting into your family.
