The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency acknowledges that U.S. citizens are exposed to THOUSANDS of chemicals every year that can have a harmful cumulative effect on us. Many of these chemicals are known to be cancer-causing agents. Most of these chemicals come from our food, air, water, medications, cleaning solvents, industry, agriculture, etc.
Everyday living in today’s polluted and stressful can burden our body and its ability to function normally and stay healthy.
The body’s normal elimination pathways may be able to counteract these negative influences for a time, yet become overwhelmed after long-term exposure. The buildup of toxins throughout the body compromises our health and appearance.
Dr. Silcox takes this threat seriously and utilizes multiple detoxification methods for maximum health benefits.
1. RID YOUR BODY OF TOXINS: eliminate the discomfort of detox, and remove heavy metals, chemicals & toxins easily & comfortably from your body.
2. UNBURDEN YOUR BODY: of herbicides, pesticides, colorings, additives, preservatives, and other untold chemicals that reside in our water, food, and air.
3. RECEIVE RELIEF: of discomfort from sore and aching joints, which are symptoms of arthritis and bursitis.
4. MORE ENERGY AND A BETTER STATE OF MIND: think more clearly, feel lighter, and have energy which will boost your well-being.
5. ENABLE HEALTHY WEIGHT LOSS: This will increase your metabolism, reactivate the body’s fat-burning mechanisms, release the fat cells that hold toxins, reduce cellulite & easily maintain the weight that is correct for you.
6. SLOW THE AGING PROCESS AND LOOK YOUNGER: it is a proven fact that the effects of toxins in our environment build up over time and causes oxidation of the skin and the end result is the acceleration of the aging process. The Detoxification methods employed help to turn back the hands of time. It is very common for friends and loved ones to notice as a client regains their vitality and a twinkle in the eye.
This is what happens when someone puts their feet in the water. The water changes color naturally because of the chemical reaction between the electricity and the salt water, not because of toxins. It’s actually, the debris that begins to form in the water later in the session that is the toxins.
The main point of these detoxification sessions is to make the body’s pH more “alkaline,” but what exactly is the importance of being alkaline? An alkaline body environment is crucial to a person’s health. The only place where acid is necessary for health is in the stomach. Diseases thrive in an acidic environment. So basically, the less acidic your body is and the more alkaline, the less prone you are to contracting a disease, such as osteoporosis or cancer.
What we put into our body, such as the foods we consume, has either acidic or alkalizing properties. The more of the higher alkaline foods you can incorporate into your diet the better. An ionic detox helps to facilitate the alkalization process through the process of ionization, which removes “free radicals” from the body.
The detox continues to alkalize the body up to 48 hours after the treatment, via kidneys, bowels, and lymphatics, which is an added benefit. Other scientifically measured effects of ionic foot detox, besides alkalization, are lower blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol levels.
Yes! Most people can benefit from an ionic detox. It is especially good for those suffering from GI disorders, skin conditions, fungal or yeast infections, and cancer. Ionic Foot detoxes are often used in practice with cancer patients to help with the side effects of chemotherapy.
The ionic detox is contraindicated for those who have a pacemaker and open sores or lesions on his/her feet. People with Diabetes Type I should use this therapy with caution, and make sure there are no open sores on the feet
The benefit of this form of detox is that it is gentle and safe, and not compromising because it bypasses the gastrointestinal system. The detox also works well when accompanied by acupuncture, to stimulate blood flow, in treating peripheral neuropathy. The best time to detox for people who are not suffering from a specific ailment is during the transitional seasons: Spring and Fall.
In addition, Dr. Silcox recommends the use of Chiro-Klenz Tea which is an herbal tea that gently stimulates the bowels to move. This can be done on an as-needed basis when sluggish bowel function can cause a person to feel lethargic and just not up to par. When Chiro-Klenz tea is used on a more regular basis, it is continuously working as a herbal internal detoxification that helps to draw out stored toxins and eliminate them through the kidney and bowels.
