The truth is, you and your patients are exposed to toxins every single day; endogenous toxins created by our own body and exogenous toxins from the outside.
All of these toxins can cause a multitude of symptoms including: fatigue, indigestion, food cravings and weight gain, brain fog, low libido, various skin issues, and more. According to the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism, “studies have revealed that exposure to an accumulation of toxins plays a significant role in cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity”. Therefore, a person’s environment and dietary intake play a huge role in the onset of chronic illnesses. It is even possible that these influences may affect not only the individual, but also the offspring for generations to come. That's why it's becoming more pertinent than ever to detox at least once a year.
Physical indicators of toxicity that you may hear often include:
Inability to lose weight (even after diet and exercise)
Chronic fatigue and/ or the inability to think clearly
A poor immune system
Joint/ muscle aches and pains
A simple tool you can also offer is this toxicity questionnaire.
Can your patient just detox on their own? Well, there are several minerals and nutrients involved in the detoxification process; all of which are accessible in a variety of high-quality, whole super foods. Now, whether or not you or your patients would like to attempt to consume the quantity of food necessary to achieve adequate levels of nutrients is up to your/their discretion. However, if you ask us, a simple scoop of our new Detox Balance Powder will surely save you and your patients a lot of time and money.
The Standard Process detox supports all three phases of detox, allowing for the full elimination of toxins at a cellular level. The goal is to convert fat-soluble toxins to water-soluble and then to quickly push them to full elimination. This "full elimination" is the main differentiator between a quality detox program and trendy detox protocol, such as juice cleanses.
If you're interested in offering the new Standard Process detox program to your patients, be sure to contact us here or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org We will be happy to educate you further on the program and assist you in setting up an order.
