Our world today includes more toxins than ever before. Certainly, the best way to not have to detox is to not expose oneself to the toxins, although this has become exceptionally difficult in today’s world. The body has to clear more and more toxins in order to stay in balance or homeostasis.
This process requires many cofactors and the ability to detox is one of the main pathways to health. When the cellular processes are overwhelmed by toxins or if an individual is missing one of the many cofactors involved in detoxification then the individual will be unable to get rid of this particular toxin. A build-up of toxins can lead to an overwhelmed immune system which leads to disease.
Dr. Kessmann’s knowledge of Functional Medicine allows her to help discover what the issue is in your process that might be contributing to lack of health. She also believes it is important for everyone to detox intermittently to help prevent issues in the future.
Prevention is the best strategy. She teaches how to properly heal the gut, decrease toxin exposure and support detoxification through natural means.
