How We Help Our Clients Decrease Their Toxic Burden
Should I Detox?
We are subject to more toxins than ever before. While an increased toxic burden may not be evident at first, as time goes on, its effects can be seen in all body systems and our overall health. In addition to external toxins, the human body creates internal toxins on a daily basis. When the burden becomes overwhelming, these toxins overwhelm the system leading to all sorts of symptoms.
What Are Toxins?
Polluted waters. Solvents in gasoline. Pesticides sprayed on fruits and vegetables. We are subject to more toxins than ever before. Everyone has heard of toxins in the environment, but we don't even have to leave our homes to be exposed to toxins. The daily act of getting up in the morning, taking a shower, applying cosmetics, and eating breakfast exposes us to over 100 different chemical compounds! There is chlorine in our shower water, fluoride in our toothpaste, parabens in our skin care products, and even pesticides in our breakfast.
The 2009 Fourth National Report on Human Exposure to Chemicals by the Centers for Disease Control revealed that Americans of all ages are carrying over 219 toxic chemicals in their body at any given time. Normally, the immune system, liver, and kidneys work together to remove toxins at the same rate in which they are encountered. In environmental medicine, when toxin levels accumulate and exceed our body's capability to remove them, it is termed increased toxic burden.
Increased toxic burden may not be evident at first, but as time goes on, its effects can be seen in all body systems. In addition to external toxins, the human body can also create internal toxins. Stress and fear, for instance, can actually cause the overgrowth of certain bacteria in the colon! As toxic burden overwhelms the body, it becomes difficult to feel completely well.

The Liver: Open 24 Hours A Day
The liver... the largest gland in the body, assimilates and packages nutrients for use while detoxifying hundreds of chemicals in two phases. If the liver fails to function properly, every other system of the body is compromised.
Most of the toxins we are exposed to are fat-soluble molecules which allows them to be deposited into our body’s fat stores to reduce the amount of toxins that are circulating freely. The fat acts as an insulation to protect us, and the body will tend to form more fat in which to store the toxins, making weight management difficult. Toxic compounds can be deposited into other tissues, preventing proper organ function of the heart, liver, colon, brain, kidney, lungs, skin, and hormone systems.
The liver converts toxins into a water soluble form, so they can be eliminated by the kidneys and colon. A good detoxification program will assist the liver in doing its job and provide nutrients to enhance this process.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
WELL WORTH DOING!
I did this because my friend looked and felt fantastic after her restore. I love the way it took the stiffness out of my joints and the lighter, cleaner feeling my body experienced.
A PRODUCT THAT REALLY WORKS!
I have severe gastrointestinal problems and nothing works to ease the discomfort. Tried different detox products and they never really solved the problem. My functional medicine doctor put me on the Core Restore program for 21 days and I healed up over that time....amazingly!
A GREAT DETOX
It is a great detox. I am down 8 pounds. I have much more energy. My acid reflex and bloating is gone. I followed the directions in the patient guide exactly and will continue to follow the diet. The menu they provide is very tasty and enjoyed the new flavors.
