Detoxing

Why is Detoxing So Important?

Generally participating in a Detoxing Program is related to a weight loss endeavour or eliminating sugar or Alcohol from the body.  However, Detoxing while you are treating a chronic illness can be life-threatening if not conducted in the correct manner.

As pathogens are killed through the treatment process they literally start to poison the body, this reaction is called the Herxheimer Reaction. The technical definition for a Herxheimer Reaction, commonly known as herxing or die off, is the release of endotoxins from the destroyed cell walls of the bacteria that causes an additional inflammatory response (causing a debilitating physical and mental state) contingent to the number of endotoxins released, so it is extremely important to manage the treatment process in conjunction with a Detoxing Program.

A Detoxing Program basically means cleansing the blood. This is done by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, which is where toxins are treated for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin.

At Poseidonia Health Care we have a large number of treatments that manage the Detoxing process and our Doctors and Nurses monitor you on a daily basis to ensure you receive treatment at a pace your body can safely deal with. A few of our treatments to manage the Detoxing process are:

  • EBOO: Blood Cleansing.
  • Intravenous Vitamins and Minerals
  • Lymphatic Drainage Massage (PROJUVENOX™)
  • Cryotherapy
  • Far Infrared Sauna
  • Ozone Colonics
  • Magnesium & BiCarb Soda Foot Baths
  • Deta Elis BioResonance Treatment

During treatment for chronic illness, the body may begin to store toxic waste that needs to be removed from our bodies. For example, when we are improving liver function, there may be residual by-products of healing that can hinder the body’s optimal recovery.

The removal of normal metabolic waste that collects in our bodies from its normal functions is part of a proper detoxification process. The Detoxing programs at Poseidonia Healthcare are how we can help patients manage and improve this process to reduce the toxic burden created endotoxins, which can delay recovery from chronic illness.

The benefits of enhanced detoxing extend beyond a reduction of the toxic load. It can yield improvements in energy, sleep, digestion, mood and overall sense of wellbeing, all of which can lead to the efficacy of treating chronic illness.

PROJUVENOX™ DETOXING

Did you know that it is possible to reduce your toxins level in a relaxing way … want to know more?

ProJuvenox™ Lymphatic Massage suits use a personally adjusted pressure during the massage that increases the flow of lymph and promotes the reduction of toxins within your body.

The procedure is a non-invasive, non-hands on approach as it is a suit you will be wearing whilst lying down, allowing you to wear loose clothing.

Reasons Why You Need Detoxing

HEAVY METALS

In our day to day life, we come in contact with or consume such heavy metals such as:

Mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, aluminium, nickel, titanium, tin, and barium may be found in medicine, dentistry, personal care products such as cosmetics, creams, deodorant, water, the food supply, second-hand smoke, car exhaust or industrial and household products.

Some of these have been dumped into our environment or from the burning of fossil fuels and now have contaminated soil and air. Some of these heavy metals may even be found in food grown organically.

CHEMICALS

Over 200,000 industrial toxic chemicals are released into our environment each year and less than 2000 have been tested for causing harm.

The bowel is our number one detox organ, immune system and regulatory organ for our healthy microbiome. The bowel is critical for health and is under attack by all of the above, but especially GMOs, Round-up, and other pesticides/herbicides.

CHRONIC INFECTIONS

Chronic infections, or infestations and their toxic by-products can complicate treatment and recovery for the chronically ill.  When the immune system’s effectiveness becomes reduced and the detoxification systems become overwhelmed the cells are starving for minerals and other nutrients the unwanted pathogens can take over.  The list of chronic infections includes Lyme Disease and co-infections that accompany it,  Moulds, Candida and other

ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS (EMFs)

There are other modern toxins that are energetic in nature that our fore-fathers did not have to deal with. The noxious energies of Electromagnetic radiation (produced by electricity fields) and microwave radiation (cell phones, wireless signals, cell towers and everything else) can produce harmful effects that our neuro-immune system cannot deal with, exacerbating the chronic conditions listed above.

What are the dangers of detoxing alone?

It is possible to do a detoxing programme alone, however, it is not always ideal. Complications may arise at any time based on the substance used and the person’s existing physical and mental health. Also, intense cravings and other significant discomforts may arise during the withdrawal process, weakening the resolve to quit and potentially contributing to the risk of relapse.

The process of withdrawal can result in a wide array of symptoms that, depending on the drug and the individual, may include:

  • Insomnia or hypersomnia.
  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Diarrhea and other gastrointestinal distress.
  • Appetite changes.
  • Irritability and agitation.
  • Anxiety.
  • Depression.
  • Strong drug cravings.
  • Pain.
  • Disorientation.
  • Seizure.
  • Coma.

Medical detoxing may be better able to manage and treat symptoms such as these as they present, making the process as safe and comfortable as possible.

HOW LONG DOES DETOXING TAKE?

There is no set timeframe for detoxing to be completed. For some, the process will only take hours or days. For others, it may take weeks to completely clear the body of the drug. Factors that dictate the length of detoxing include:

  • The drug of abuse.
  • The rate, dose, and duration of use.
  • The presence of any poly-substance abuse.
  • The detox setting.
  • The goals of the patient.
  • Previous detox attempts.
  • The individual’s health condition.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that the average length of detoxing is fewer than eight days. However, certain substances like methadone and buprenorphine may take longer to clear because the drugs are relatively long-acting. In these instances, patients often undergo a slow tapering of the abused substance, which can necessitate longer durations.

FIR Sauna Detoxing

Sweating is one of the body’s natural ways to eliminate toxins making it a crucial part of detoxification.

When compared to traditional Swedish/Finnish Saunas, FIR – Far Infra-Red saunas allow you to eliminate approximately 7 times more toxins than any traditional Saunas.

What Detoxing Treatments We Offer?

ProJuvenox™ Lymphatic Massage Therapy

Did you know that it is possible to reduce your toxin levels in a relaxing way. Just lay back and relax while our Nurses fit you into our ProJuvenox™ Lymphatic Drainage Massage suit for an hour-long treatment, where you can drift away in meditation and let the Detoxing process begin.

Detoxing - Projuvenox - Poseidonia Healthcare

ProJuvenox™ Lymphatic Drainage Massage detoxing suits use a personally adjusted pressure during the massage that increases the flow of toxins through the lymph system and promotes the reduction of toxins within your body. The procedure is a non-invasive, non-hands on approach as it is a specialised suit you wear whilst lying down, allowing you to wear loose clothing.

The lymph system is part of your body’s immune system that helps fight infection. Lymph itself is a clear, slightly yellow fluid which transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, collecting toxins on the way and flushing them out through the lymph nodes. You have around twice as many lymph vessels as blood vessels in your body.

Unlike blood which is pumped around by your heart, the lymph system has no pump. The pressure from your blood vessels and movement from your muscles push the lymphatic fluid around.

What is detoxing lymphatic drainage massage good for?
Lymphatic drainage massage has an overall beneficial effect on your general health. The lymphatic system is the key to keeping your immune system working properly, continuously improving the flow and drainage of lymph around the body which is good for you in many ways.

  • Reduce Toxin Levels
  • Reduce water retention
  • Boost weight loss
  • Improve your skin texture

ProJuvenox™ Lymphatic drainage reduces toxin levels and this helps the body fight off infections, reduces the chance of suffering from colds, viruses & speeds up the healing and recovery from other illnesses

Reduces water retention
Because the lymph system has no pump, sitting for a long time without moving means the lymph cannot flow easily, this is why you may experience swollen feet or fingers on flights or long drives.  Projuvenox™ system allows the lymph to circulate and to be expelled through the natural process.

Boosts weight loss
Improving the lymphatic system will improve your metabolic rate which in turn helps you burn calories more efficiently.

Improves your skin texture by:

  • Reducing swelling, puffiness and blotches
  • Giving you clean, healthy pores
  • Speeding up healing in scar tissue, e.g. improving the appearance of stretch marks
  • Helps reduce cellulite; the Projuvenox™ massage increases blood flow and circulation to affected areas helping the body break down toxins causing dimply skin.
How Can Far Infrared Sauna Therapy Help Me?

At Poseidonia Healthcare, we believe that Detoxing is a vital part of a healthy body. Sweating is a great way of Detoxing through the body’s largest organ, the skin. while you are undergoing treatment protocols at Poseidonia Healthcare we want to assist you in removing toxins as fast as possible for your personal comfort and faster recovery time frames.

An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat. This type of sauna is sometimes called a Far-Infrared Sauna, “Far” describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body.

Because the FIR saunas have a different method for heating up the body, it induces higher levels of sweating by emitting Infrared Radiation, in essence, this is the same reason why we feel warm when we sit in direct sunlight on a summer’s day.

The Infrared Radiation is able to heat up deeper levels of our tissues that would otherwise be out of reach from a traditional style of sauna or traditional steam room. As a result, a higher concentration of toxins is emanated through the process of sweating from an FIR sauna. As well as being very relaxing you are also taking more care of your health.

In the world we live in today we are surrounded by toxins and pollution and as a result, toxin starts to build up in the body and must be removed to help keep us healthy. This toxic build-up can also be caused by the use of medications and as a result of the disease.

FIR saunas are a great way to help us.

FAR Infrared Sauna Detoxing

Reduce Inflammation

Infrared saunas work to stimulate circulation to bring down inflammation throughout the whole body. … Infrared saunas also have the ability to increase the production of white blood cells which help fight inflammation and calm swelling to alleviate chronic pain.

Detoxification
Sweating is one of the body’s natural ways to eliminate toxins making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional Swedish/Finnish Saunas, FIR – Far Infra-Red saunas allow you to eliminate approximately 7 times more toxins than any traditional Saunas.

Relaxation
FIR sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol which is your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tensions throughout the body allowing you to relax and de-stress.

Pain Relief
If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pains, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing the muscles.

Weight Loss
The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising.
When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories resulting in weight loss. An article titled ‘Effect of Sweating’ in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories.

 Improved Circulation
As the heat from FIR saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions, especially in the middle-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.

 Skin Purification
Infrared FIR sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation resulting in clearer, softer and healthier-looking skin.

How can OZONE Colon Hydrotherapy Help Me

Ozone Colon Hydrotherapy Irrigation kills harmful bacteria, parasites, mould/yeast infections, and virus. Draws toxins through blood, liver, lymph back into the large intestine for better elimination.

Ozone Colon Hydrotherapy is one of the most powerful ways to help rid the body of toxins in a rapid way.  At Poseidonia Healthcare we have also come to realise most of our chronically ill patients have gastrointestinal issues and we can help ease their discomfort short term and promote the healing of the gut for longterm.

Most people already know that Colon Hydrotherapy is a fantastic way to detoxify the body and improve intestinal health, but did you know that combining it with ozone therapy dramatically boosts its effect?  This way we can have not only a great cleansing but also good disinfection since the ozone is a powerful bactericidal, viricidal and fungicidal.

The effect of hydrating and moistening the bowel is to dislodge hardened old faecal matter leaving you feeling lighter and with regained energy. The benefit of ozone is to provide an environment where parasites and bad bacteria do not survive hence eliminating them and their bad effects on the rest of the body while producing an antiseptic and healing effect on the colon.

Thanks to a proper colon cleansing and disinfection, many organs of the body benefit since ozonized water can penetrate the colon walls to get, indirectly to other organs such as liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys and even to the lungs so they can have detoxification at a certain level. The effects for the skin are easily perceived so that this joint therapy can relieve certain dermatological ailments such as psoriasis. In reality, a healthy colon can be easily detected through the skin.

In today’s world, people wanting to live a life full of energy and free of disease must find a way to cleanse the body and boost immunity. Ozone is ‘super oxygen’ that can eliminate anaerobic pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and parasites while protecting friendly bacteria. In fact, in this age of resistant microbes, ozone therapy has become even more important since it is impossible for any microbe to become resistant to it.

OZONE Colon Hydrotherapy is a valuable procedure used to assist the body in restoring vibrant health and preventing disease. It may assist in helping many health conditions including constipation, bloating, sluggish bowel movement, low immune system, poor digestion, irritability, depression and skin problems.
