Acupuncture for DetoxificationDetoxification has been used to restore optimal health for thousands of years. The first herbal prescription for cleansing the body came from the Chinese in 2700 BC; Evidence of colon cleansing dates back to 1500BC and saunas have been used for over two thousand years. Integrative Med Solutions (IMS) offers a variety of unique, all natural detoxification solutions that are tailored to your particular health history. Using acupuncture and naturopathic medicine, Dr. Lisanti will attempt to re-set your energy patterns while catapulting your system back to homeostasis (optimal health).

Acupuncture: Out with the Old
The Inner Classic of the Yellow Emperor, 100 B.C., states: “a superior healer is one who treats a disease before it shows symptoms, while an inferior one treats a disease only after it has manifested pain or discomfort,” Licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Lisanti, will utilize meridians or pathways throughout your body to keep your elimination energy in prime mode. Used as a preventative measure or a ‘jump start’ to a detoxification program, acupuncture stands tall in its beneficial effects.

Environmental Medicine: Find the Toxins
A study published in Neurotoxicology Journal reported studying the first bowel movement of 426 newborns and found 83.9% had mercury. 26.5% had lead. 26.5% had DDT. These three substances fall into the category of heavy metals, solvents and pesticides which are the three top threats of living in an industrialized world. Dr. Lisanti will study your history as well as measure your ‘serum toxin levels and toxin-induced immune system damage’ as the first approach to using environmental medicine to begin your detoxification program.

Botanical Medicine: Nature’s Detox
IMS works with a variety of botanical medicines for a successful detoxification experience. Ingested as a formula or individual dosage, these herbs and plant materials assist the body in eliminating free roaming and/or embedded toxins. Some botanical medicine choices include: Anticatarrhals (anti-mucous) and antibiotic properties – garlic, boneset, echinacea and goldenseal; Diuretics – corn silk, horsetail, parsley and juniper; Blood purifiers – burdock root, dandelion, red clover and Oregon grape root.

Clinical Nutrition: Detox while Eating
Dr. Lisanti will show you how to use specific foods to keep your system as detoxified as possible in-between cleanses. This basically entails incorporating such things as clean, purified water, dark green leafy vegetables and highly nutritious yet detoxifying soups.

This is a small example of the many choices IMS can implement for your detoxification program. Other remedies that could also be used are nutraceutical supplementation, homeopathy and even clinical hypnosis to help you stay on course.
