Detox

Dr. Liz Cavin believes that poor quality diet, exposure to chemicals in our environment and excess body fat have predisposed many of us to develop a state “internal pollution“ which negatively impacts many aspects of overall health. This toxicity warrants the need to detoxify our bodies on a regular basis.

Dr. Liz Cavin enjoys leading her patients through detoxification programs designed help them lose excess body fat and release toxins from their bodies. Patients may choose to detox by themselves or in a group setting. During the detoxification program she will teach her patients how follow a modified diet that puts less strain on the digestive system. She will encourage patients to partake in activities that enhance detoxification like sweating in a sauna, dry skin brushing, getting a massage and creating time for relaxation. She will also have them use a nutritional powder called ClearVite that is intended to help the detoxification process. It is a blend of rice protein, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and herbs that assist and support the metabolic detoxification process. It is designed to:
• Repair the gastrointestinal tract from damage due to inflammation
• Repair tissues at the cellular level
• Support liver detoxification of environmental pollutants such as chemicals and hormones found in food, air and water
• Provide supportive nutrition during the detoxification process
Once the detoxification program is over, it usually lasts 1-2 weeks. Dr. Liz Cavin also teaches her patients’ ways to continue to support and protect the function of the organs directly involved in detoxification: the liver, the intestinal tract and the kidneys.
