The Benefits of Metabolic Detoxification

Beautiful,Woman,Drinking,An,Organic,Green,Smoothie.,Fit,Young,Woman Metabolic detoxification (aka detox) refers to the metabolizing and excreting of foreign substances from the body. These substances include chemicals, toxins, and medications. With help from an experienced health coach at Modern Medicine, you can learn how to get the most out of a metabolic detox program.

Is Metabolic Detoxification Important?

Yes, a liver loaded with toxins struggles as it tries to metabolize hormones, which can lead to an imbalance. Hormonal imbalance symptoms include:

  • Irritability.
  • Trouble sleeping.
  • A slow metabolism.
  • Weight gain
  • Weight loss.
  • Anxiety.
  • Skin problems (e.g., rashes).
  • A decreased sex drive.
  • Changes in blood pressure.
  • Excessive sweating.
  • Strong body odor.
  • Brittle bones.
  • Sluggishness.
  • Issues with digestion (e.g., bloating).
  • Heart rate variations.

Metabolic Detoxification Works Because of Autophagy

A Japanese scientist, Yoshinori Ohsumi, received the Nobel Prize in October 2016 for discovering the mechanisms of autophagy. Ohsumi found that overfeeding our body interrupts the natural process of autophagy, which involves our cells consuming the malfunctioning and damaged parts of cells to use for energy.

When we implement Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC) practices to detoxify, we place ourselves on the path to success.

Metabolic Detoxification Benefits

Detoxifying your body allows you to cleanse your gallbladder, pancreas, liver, kidneys, urinary tract, and intestines. Health issues a metabolic detox can help with include:

  • Cardiovascular disease.
  • Poor gut health.
  • Being overweight.
  • Metabolic syndrome (e.g., type 2 diabetes).
  • Chronic inflammation.
  • A weak immune system.

How Long Does a Metabolic Detox Take?

If you are detoxing for the first time, a full cleanse may take 14 days. However, a typical metabolic detoxification program usually lasts about ten days.

Why Does the Detoxification Process Take 10 to 14 Days?

As your body detoxifies, the body’s systems and organs need time to digest and eliminate the many toxins that have built up in your body.

Your health coach at Modern Medicine will provide you with information about how you can prepare for a thorough detoxification. After detox, you can expect to have more energy, feel better and look healthier.
