Which detox services are best for me?

To find out which body detox services are best for you, a Family Medicine & Wellness Center provider reviews your medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle habits. 

After checking your vital signs, they complete a physical exam and blood testing to determine which substances in your body, or deficiencies, require the most attention. 

What should I expect during detoxification services?

During detoxification treatments at Family Medicine & Wellness Center, you might undergo one or more of the following:

Meal planning

Eating nutritious foods free of chemicals and additives is an excellent way to detoxify your body, lose weight, and reduce the chance of chronic diseases.

Oral nutraceuticals

Oral nutraceuticals, or dietary supplements made of natural substances, can effectively detoxify your body. The Family Medicine & Wellness Center specialists partner with The Wellness Shoppe, which is an online distributor where patients purchase top-quality products tailored to their personalized needs. 

Intravenous nutrients

Intravenous (IV) therapy infuses fluids and nutrients into your bloodstream for fast absorption. Your Family Medicine & Wellness Center provider infuses nutrients based on your genetic makeup and your personalized needs while you relax in a comfortable chair. 

Chelation therapy

Chelation therapy offered at Family Medicine & Wellness Center is a treatment administered orally, topically, intramuscularly, or intravenously. It’s used to treat metal poisoning by binding to heavy metals or other toxins, making it easier for your body to eliminate them.

Phosphatidylcholine infusions

Phosphatidylcholine improves the integrity of your cells’ membranes, improving the transport of nutrients and export of toxins across cell membranes. 

How often do I need detoxification services?

Your Family Medicine & Wellness Center provider lets you know when to schedule your next detoxification treatment based on your level of toxin buildup, the nutrient deficiencies you may experience, and your lifestyle habits. You might receive detoxification services once every few weeks, once a month, or as needed.
