It’s no secret that we live in a toxic world. From the food we eat, to the water we drink and the air we breathe, the toxic burden is everywhere. This is a leading contributor to chronic illness and health struggles. At Metabolix Health, we are experts in detoxing mycotoxins (mold), heavy metals and toxins made in your gut from bad bacteria in a safe and orderly manner. We will help you optimize your detox pathways for ongoing health and vitality.
Before starting any detox program, at Metabolix Health, we will run a full assessment of your current state of health and determine whether your body is ready for a detox program. Detoxing can be dangerous if done without proper supervision and skill. This is why many people put on weight after going on a cleanse because the toxins moved from one system to another in the body and were stored in an unwanted place such as belly fat.

Detox in functional medicine is about removing the toxic overload and burden from your cells in a safe and orderly manner through your lungs, skin, kidneys, lymph and gut. There are 3 major detox routes – through the stool, through sweating and through urine. Drink plenty of water so you’re flushing out all the water soluble toxins. Sweating would be through infrared saunas or exercise. With stool, this is about making sure that your gut is working well and you are having daily bowel movements – ideally 2 – 3 per day. Mycotoxin detox and heavy metal detox relies entirely upon the gut working well to avoid over burdening other systems of the body to remove these serious toxins safely. Are you sweating through infrared saunas or exercise? Are you drinking plenty of water so that you can remove water soluble toxins? Are you suffering with hot flashes – this is also related to gut health and detox pathways not working optimally. When you have a toxin in your system, you want to get rid of it. Assuming your liver has done its amazing job, the toxins go to the gallbladder and are dumped out in the bile. Your gallbladder has to be working efficiently or this isn’t going to work. It can also be dumped out, eventually, through the kidneys and out in the urine. This process requires you to drink sufficient clean water with a good balance of minerals.
If your body is working efficiently, it is a wonderful self-cleansing detox machine. However, when the foundations of your health are off balance, your detox pathways become clogged and it is just like a blocked sewer in your home.
Your body needs unblocking which takes expert help we can provide, especially your gut and liver health. If you improve your detox pathways, you can look forward to renewed energy, better hormones and a healthier metabolism.
