Detoxification

Methods of detoxification have existed in different cultures for thousands of years, ranging from sweat lodges in Native American Traditions to Panchakarma of Ayurvedic medicine. Our world today has so many more toxins, that the need for detoxification is even greater than ever before. We see this evidenced in all of the chronic/degenerative/autoimmune diseases that are on the rise in our society. The fact is that our healthcare system is lacking, and has trouble helping us with our ever increasing health needs. We have to take control of our own health.

Detoxification twice per year is a great way to improve your health.

Many people use over the counter “detox” products but don’t understand the importance of having open detoxification pathways (skin, kidney, liver/gallbladder and colon) and the importance of the use of binders to assist toxins out of the body. At BrainWorks of Oregon we use professional products to ensure the safe and effective removal of toxins.

Heavy Metals

Heavy metals are even found in our drinking water.

Heavy metals are even found in our drinking water.

We evaluate heavy metal toxicity, which is more common than you think. The symptoms of heavy metal toxicity may be hard to pinpoint. They can range from headaches and brain fog to constant fatigue. Depending on your level of exposure, you might suffer from serious diseases. We are all exposed to heavy metals regularly, as they are in our environment and our food. They’re even in our drinking water. The most common heavy metals include aluminum, mercury, arsenic, cadmium and lead. Mercury is highly toxic. Some newborns are born with high levels of mercury, lead and glyphosates in their systems.

Uninvited Guests

Around 60-80% of people in the U.S. are likely to suffer from some form of parasitic infestation during their lifetime, and parasites could have a part to play in most common illnesses. Bacteria, parasites and fungi build up in our bodies because we generate the perfect environment for them through gut flora imbalances, exposure to certain foods, medications and chemicals.

The common symptoms of parasitic infections can range from:

  • wrinkles above your lips

  • severe allergies

  • fatigue

  • brain fog

  • depression

  • anxiety

  • poor sleeping habits

  • and more…

Parasites don’t just live in our gut – they migrate to other areas of the body, such as the liver, gallbladder, lungs and brain. This can have serious consequences to one’s health. Parasites can cause chronic infection that can suppress the immune system, allowing Epstein-Barr, Lyme, or pathogens to take hold. When killing parasites they release toxins, heavy metals, viruses and mold which can cause symptoms, unless all detoxification pathways are open. At BrainWorks of Oregon we provide the products necessary for safe removal of these uninvited guests and their byproducts. Treating parasites is challenging because they do not want to leave their comfy home in your body.
