Detox For Physical Spiritual Health Rev 0111

  1. 1. Detoxification forDetoxification for Physical and SpiritualPhysical and Spiritual HealthHealth
  2. 2. Why is there a need toWhy is there a need to Detox?Detox? All of us live in an ever-increasing toxic environment
  3. 3. ENVIROMENTAL TOXINSENVIROMENTAL TOXINS Many of the toxins abundant in our environment today did not even exist 30 years ago!
  4. 4. Toxic OverloadToxic Overload • Body burden from environmental toxins, including pesticides, herbicides, chemical solvents, xenobiotics, and industrial chemicals of all types come through our food, water, and air supply.
  5. 5. From The WaterFrom The Water • Neurotoxins were found in 33% of a random sampling of drinking water (diazinon: from insecticide)
  6. 6. From The AirFrom The Air • Since WWII 80,000 new synthetic chemicals have been released into the environment and less than half have been tested for potential toxicity to adult humans
  7. 7. Xenobiotic ExposureXenobiotic Exposure • Over 4 billion pounds of pesticides are used annually in the U.S. This amounts to 8 pounds for every man, woman, and child. • Current law allows for 350 different pesticides to be used on the food we eat. • The average home contains 3-10 gallons of hazardous materials • 400 Synthetic chemicals can be found in the average human body • There is no single regulatory agency that oversees industrial chemicals to ensure their safety: industrial chemicals are presumed safe until proven hazardous even through they may have physiological effects that are almost identical to a drug and are often manufactured by pharmaceutical companies. • Any toxicity testing that is done typically involves individual compounds in highly controlled settings and almost never investigates effects of complex mixtures.
  8. 8. EXPOSUREEXPOSURE • In addition, we are eating more sugar and processed foods than ever before in human history and regularly abuse our bodies with various stimulants and sedatives.
  9. 9. Synergistic Effects of ToxinsSynergistic Effects of Toxins • Cigarette Smoking increases the risk of lung cancer by 10 times • Asbestos exposure increases the risk of lung cancer by 5 times • Smoking and asbestos exposure increase the risk of lung cancer by 55 times • Total Effect: More than additive or even multiplicative!
  10. 10. Categories of ToxicantsCategories of Toxicants • Pesticides – Insecticides – Herbicides • Industrial Compounds and Chemical Byproducts – Volatile organics such as solvents and detergents – Toxic metals – Plasticizers – Insulators (asbestos) • Combustion / Incineration Pollutants • Synthetic Medications • Food Additives and preparation by-products • Cosmetic Additives
  11. 11. Toxic MetalsToxic Metals Arsenic Mercury Lead Cadmium Aluminum (see protocols for removal, DFH website, Library – protocol section)
  12. 12. Heavy metalsHeavy metals • Heavy metals such as mercury deposit in fat cells. • Is the body not eager to draw on this fat because the mercury will get released into the system?? • Could inability to lose weight be a protective mechanism? 1-800-847-8302
  13. 13. • Whey Protein Raises Glutathione levels up to 64% - Glutathione is a sulfur-containing tripeptide made up of glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine - present in high concentrations in almost every cell - protects cells against free radical and hydrogen peroxide damage - respiratory carrier of oxygen - regenerates Vitamin E and Vitamin C - for every atom of mercury that is removed the body loses 3 glutathione tripeptides.
  14. 14. Chemical AdditivesChemical Additives • Over 10,000 food and chemical additives are allowed into the U.S. food supply including colorings, sweeteners, stimulants, preservatives, flavorings, emulsifiers, humectants and antimicrobials • In 1984, 3,200 tons of coal tar dyes added to foods • Average American eats approximately 14 pounds of additives per year
  15. 15. Additional EnvironmentalAdditional Environmental ToxicantsToxicants • Microbial toxins – Aflatoxin (peanuts) – Mycotoxins from molds • Medications and “lifestyle chemicals” – Alcohol – Acetaminophen • By-products of food preparation – Acrylamide from French Fries – Nitrosamine from cold cuts and sausages – Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from charbroiled meats
  16. 16. Endogenous Toxins:Endogenous Toxins: Intestinal SourcesIntestinal Sources • Products of dysbiosis – Bacteria: putrescine, cadaverine, ammonia – Yeasts: arabinose, tartarate, citramalate, beat ketoglutarate – Secondary bile acids (deconjugated) – Beta glucuronidase (causing enterohepatic recirculation of hormones and other toxins)
  17. 17. Chronic ToxicantChronic Toxicant Exposure: A “Meta-Exposure: A “Meta- process” Whichprocess” Which • Amplifies Other Pathological Processes • Negatively Impacts General Health • Creates or Contributes to a Wide Variety of Chronic Diseases • Accelerates Senescence

  19. 19. Chronic Exposure toChronic Exposure to Environmental ToxicantsEnvironmental Toxicants:: Systemic Health EffectsSystemic Health Effects • Carcinogenesis • Endocrine & metabolic disruption • Immunologic dysfunction – Immunosuppression (direct effects on bone marrow) – Autoimmunity & allergy – Chronic inflammation (cardiovascular disease) • Neurotoxicity – Cognitive & behavioral dysfunction – Neurodegenerative disorders – Neuropathy
  20. 20. DetoxificationDetoxification begins in the gutbegins in the gut
  21. 21.
  22. 22. Detoxification: theDetoxification: the ProcessProcess • Detoxification refers to the metabolic pathways via which cells transform toxic substances into relatively inert metabolites that can be readily excreted via the urine or bile. • Since the majority of toxic substances are fat soluble, they have an affinity for and are stored in high fat tissues and organs when not detoxified and excreted promptly.
  23. 23. Detoxification – theDetoxification – the processprocess • Most toxic substances are fat-soluble and must be converted to a water- soluble form before they can be excreted. • This is done in a two-step process referred to as phase 1 and phase 2. • Although most of this activity takes place in the liver, about 25% occurs in the small intestine, and all tissues have some detoxification capacity.
  24. 24. The Liver is the MajorThe Liver is the Major Detoxifying OrganDetoxifying Organ The liver utilizes a two-phase system in detoxifying the body of harmful substances: • 11stst :: Transforms toxins into more water- soluble compounds that are then carried through the blood to the liver for further processing, or to the kidney for elimination. • 22nd:nd: Completing the detoxification in the liver and sending the toxins back to the kidney for elimination, or into the bile for elimination via the GI tract.
  25. 25.
  26. 26. Phase I & Phase IIPhase I & Phase II • The congested or sluggish liver is characterized by a diminished bile flow, while impaired liver (hepatic) detoxification refers to decreased phase I and/or phase II enzyme activity. • Phase I detoxification rates that are in excess of phase II activity will also cause toxicity problems due to excessive accumulation of activated intermediates.
  27. 27. Imbalanced DetoxificationImbalanced Detoxification Phase I CYP P450 Phase II Conjugation Damage to DNA, RNA, Proteins Reactive IntermediateNon-Polar Xenobiotic Inert Water-Soluble Metabolite
  28. 28. Detox enzyme capacity isDetox enzyme capacity is highly variablehighly variable • Many phase 1 enzymes are induced by their substrates. • These are often xenobiotics. • This leads to more rapid production of reactive intermediates. • Many substances including xenobiotics, drugs and even nutrients (grapefruit) can inhibit some phase 1 enzymes. • This inhibition leads to an accumulation of their substrates in the bloodstream and increased storage in fatty tissues.
  29. 29. Phase 2Phase 2 • Phase 2 enzymes are highly dependent on energy and on adequate dietary protein. • Phase 2 enzymes can be induced by numerous substances found in fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs. • Both phase 1 and 2 are highly dependent on adequate nutritional status for their activity

  31. 31. Genetic VariationsGenetic Variations • There are numerous genetic variations in the activity of both phase 1 and phase 2 enzymes. • This, along with nutritional status and total toxic load may help explain why detoxification abilities for a particular substance may vary as much as 100-fold or more between different individuals.
  32. 32. Causes of ImpairedCauses of Impaired Detoxication: SummaryDetoxication: Summary • Overwhelming toxic load (exogenous + endogenous) • Impaired excretion (constipation or increased transit time; renal dysfunction) • Inefficient fuels (macronutrient imbalance) • Deficiency of detoxifying substances (antioxidants, cofactors, conjugating agents) • Genetic Variation
  33. 33. Is Detox right for you?Is Detox right for you? Detoxification can be beneficial for those with one or more of the following conditions: Parasite infestation Recurring headaches Bad breath Hemorrhoids Irritability Frequent colds Protruding belly Chronic constipation Frequent gas & bloating Excess weight Frequent fatigue Impaired digestion Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Candida infection
  34. 34. How Toxic Are You?How Toxic Are You? TESTTEST To find out exactly where you are at…
  35. 35. Common Signs & SymptomsCommon Signs & Symptoms Linked toLinked to Chronic Toxicant ExposureChronic Toxicant Exposure • Marked sensitivity to environmental chemicals, odors, medications, &/or nutritional supplements • Chronic, debilitating fatigue & lethargy • Depression, anxiety &/or mood swings • Cognitive dysfunction (poor memory and concentration; learning disorders)
  36. 36. Common Signs & SymptomsCommon Signs & Symptoms Linked toLinked to Chronic Toxicant ExposureChronic Toxicant Exposure • Recurrent headaches • Muscle aching & weakness • Paresthesias and neuropathic pain • Recurrent infections • Infertility
  37. 37. Disorders Linked ToDisorders Linked To Toxicant ExposureToxicant Exposure • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome • Fibromyalgia • Multiple Chemical Sensitivity • Allergies, Asthma • Atherosclerosis • Cancer
  38. 38. Why Test…Why Test… • TO: – Point to metabolic dysfunctions that lead to disease – Show essential nutrient deficiencies and digestive system abnormalities that reveal root causes of symptoms – Target use of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients – Avoid costly, time-consuming, trial and error processes
  39. 39. Assessing ToxicityAssessing Toxicity • Identify pathological disruption – Symptom questionnaire( MSQ, HAQ) – Abnormal liver function tests • Identify antecedents – Genetic polymorphisms of phase I & II enzymes • Identify triggers – Toxic metals – Organic toxicants (fat biopsy; blood, urine) • Identify mediators – Oxidative stress markers – Essential fatty acid profile

  44. 44. Why Can’t I just eat aWhy Can’t I just eat a healthy diet?healthy diet? • Individuals who are candidates for a detoxification program have been typically experiencing symptoms for long periods of time. • They have built up an excessive toxic burden over time and have typically depleted antioxidant reserves. • They may have specific genetic polymorphisms that require higher than normal levels of particular nutrients
  45. 45. • Diet alone may not provide enough concentrated nutrients to satisfy the requirements of these individuals • They may find it difficult to prepare fresh whole organically grown meals because of their health, travel or work schedules • Medical foods like PaleoMeal provide a concentrated source of appropriate micronutrients within a hypoallergenic matrix that cannot be duplicated by food alone.
  46. 46. Why not just fast?Why not just fast? • Breakdown of adipose tissue (lipolysis) results in surge of toxins into the circulation further overloading already impaired liver function • Lack of fiber impedes fecal excretion and increases enterohepatic recirculation • Insufficient calories impairs biotransformation (detoxification is highly energy dependent)
  47. 47. The Problem withThe Problem with FastingFasting • Fasting induces phase I enzymes--leading to overproduction of toxic intermediates • Lack of exogenous antioxidants + depletion of endogenous glutathione = inadequate quenching of free radicals • Lack of cofactors impairs phase II conjugation • End result: oxidative stress, inflammation, aggravation of symptoms
  48. 48. What about chronic GIWhat about chronic GI problemsproblems • These patients may have leaky gut, IgG- mediated food allergies and inflammation. • Their liver is constantly burdened by toxins and allergens arriving from the gut. • These patients need to go on a 4R program to restore normal gut function and relieve the burden on the liver before they can become well.

  64. 64. Justifying cost of the 28 DayJustifying cost of the 28 Day Detoxification ProgramDetoxification Program • Is $15 a day worth a program that is one of the most exciting and simplest tools that natural medicine has to offer? • If you take the ENTIRE cost of the program, including 3 coaching sessions, educational materials, email support and a wrap up conversation that gets the patients on a monthly maintenance program for less than what your patients would be paying for just the meals that are being replaced….. • Can you see how you can attract a bunch of patients into essentially a FREE program like this?
  65. 65. SummarySummary • Detoxification is a continuous physiologic process that your body depends on for survival. • There are complex cellular detoxification mechanisms that are constantly at work for you all day, every day. • Natural and synthetic chemicals are processes by this complex system of cells, organs, and organ systems to keep you healthy in the face of a virtually constant barrage of toxic material • Our program is an excellent tool to improve your detoxification
  66. 66. Mental DetoxificationMental Detoxification • Relax…Breathe…Go for walks… • Enjoy the change of season • This is a time for you to care for your unique self… • You are a priority, if only for this short time The cleansing of our mind of negative thought pattern, is essential to health and physical detoxification and can aid in this process. Emotionally, detoxification helps us uncover and express hidden frustrations, anger, resentments and fear and replace them with forgiveness, love, joy and hope.
