Dr. Marchese shares how she is able to help a woman cleanse toxins from her body.
Well, for cleansing toxins from the body, it’s really individualized, based on the history that I have taken on the patient and determining what toxins they’ve been exposed to. I also will use blood and urine testing to determine what toxins are still stored in the body, and then I’ll run a genomic test, the genetic test, to see why isn’t their liver actually clearing these toxins.
And then I put all three of those things together and come up with an individualized plan to try to pull toxins from the body because, if somebody’s liver pathway genetically isn’t clearing toxins, they’re going to need some supplements to support those pathways, and perhaps another person, their liver functions just fine, so then they won’t need certain supplements to support their liver pathways.
But in general, what I do is I do a nutritional piece to put in some foods that support the liver and support the bowel. I use a lot of different forms of hydrotherapy or water-therapy to try to get the body to dump the toxins back into the bloodstream. Once the toxins are back into the bloodstream, I need to support the liver to make sure the liver will actually re-metabolize them.
Once the liver has broken down these toxins, you got to then get them out of the body, and the way we get them out of the body is either through our stool, having a bowel movement, or through the kidney. So now the kidney has really got to be supported, and of course the bowel is supported. Colon hydrotherapy is a really nice way at the end of a cleanse then to get the body to dump a lot of the toxic byproducts from the stool.
