Detoxification in Philadelphia, PA
We all have times where we are tired and can’t seem to shake feeling foggy, but when it becomes a chronic condition accompanied by skin problems, aches and pains, digestive problem, and constant weight gain, it may be time to detox. Board-certified physician Daniel Lebowitz, M.D., treats people in Bala Cynwyd and Philadelphia, PA, and surrounding communities, with detoxification treatments to clean out their systems, reset their metabolism and get them on the road to wellness.
What is Detoxification?
Detoxification is a structured program designed to clean out the body and all its systems by combining whole foods, supplements, nutritional shakes and light exercise. The objective of detoxification is to remove and eliminate toxins in order to prevent diseases and strengthen one’s ability to achieve and maintain optimal health.
Benefits of Detoxification
Detoxification gives the body’s cleansing process a boost and also:
- Allows the organs to rest through fasting
- Stimulates the liver to force toxins from the body
- Promotes elimination through the intestines, kidneys and skin
- Improves blood circulation
- Refuels the body with healthy nutrients through clean eating
- Increases energy
How Does Detoxification Work?
The World Wellness Health Institute detoxification plan is not strictly a cleanse diet or fasting to clean out the body but rather a structured program to remove impurities in the system while providing nutrients the body needs to function at optimal levels. Our program sets patients up for success by providing the tools they need in terms of a set plan to follow. On our detoxification program, the body rids itself of toxins through elimination via the kidneys, intestines, lymph system, lungs, and skin. When the program is complete, the body works properly, and patients have more energy and feel better. Detoxification is an excellent way to start a nutritional plan.
Because detoxification plans remove all processed foods, as well as starches and caffeine from the diet for a set amount of time, the best way to prepare is to gradually start removing them prior to the diet a week before the actual plan starts. Instead of having chips or candy as a snack, eat some fruit; try to remove all processed food from meals. By gradually tapering off, the side effects of the first few days of a detox program are not as bothersome as going cold turkey. Additionally, it is helpful to have the support of family members and friends to make the process smoother, especially during the first few days.
The “recovery” portion of detoxification is really about reintroducing foods back into the diet in a way that keeps the system performing at optimum levels. What we eat is usually at the heart of most chronic health conditions, so it is important to make the most out of detoxification. Ideally, following detoxification, the diet should consist of whole foods with no or very little processed food involved. Additionally, it is important to gradually increase food intake and up the effort on exercise. Detoxification recovery is all about maintaining a clean system.
How Much Does Detoxification Cost?
The cost of a detoxification plan varies with each patient depending on the exact plan chosen to follow, as well as the number of days for detoxing and whether any other treatments are planned at the same time. We can discuss the cost with you, along with our payment options and financing, which we offer through CareCredit® during a consultation.
Is Detoxification Right for Me?
Detoxification is right for everyone on a periodic basis as it rids the body of toxins and impurities from the environment and the foods we eat. If you have a sluggish feeling that you can’t shake, or you seem to hold weight and even have digestive issues that nothing seems to help, detoxification may be right for you.
