The word detoxification is an often misused term in the world of healthcare marketing. Detoxification is a very specific process that consumes a large amount of metabolic energy for the body every day.
There are very specific genetic, metabolic, and environmental interactions that control the process of detoxification in the body. At MaxWell Clinic, we take toxicity very seriously because it is one of the fundamental underlying stressors that damage the body over the course of a lifetime.
The effective removal of a substance that is detrimental to the body is highly dependent upon the substance itself. Therefore, at MaxWell Clinic we have the ability to test for the presence of these substances whether they be toxic metals, plasticizers, falates, volatile organic solvents, pesticides, DDT, PCBs, or the toxicity of bacterial wall breakdown products as a result of leaky gut.
Understanding the problem is the first step to effectively solving the problem. “Tests don’t guess” is a useful axiom. Toxins can impair our immune function, metabolic energy creation, and neurologic function.
