Detoxification:  The body's ongoing process to maintain optimal health

The human body's ability to detoxify is essential for maintaining optimal health and well-being.  This perpetual process is essential for maintaining homeostasis in the body as it manages exposure to internal and external toxins.  Internal toxins are a result of metabolic processes in the body such as lactic acid, urea, and waste products from gut bacteria that need to be eliminated from the body.  External toxins are everything that the body is exposed to from outside the body.  Research shows that certain toxins can contribute to chronic disease, cancer, inflammation, and autoimmune disease.

Cleanse to support the body's natural detoxification pathways

Age Management of West Michigan offers a variety of cleanse programs to support your body's numerous natural detoxification systems.  Cleanse and Detoxification programs can support the elimination of accumulated toxins, restore healthy metabolic function, improve digestion, reduce inflammation, boost immune function, reduce neurological decline, and improve overall organ function.  Age Management of West Michigan offers 1 and 2 week cleanses to support a variety of physiological pathways and organ systems to optimize function and overall health.

Cleanse and Detoxification Programs

Cleansing programs include:  Nutrition plan, cleanse supplements, nutrient injections and protein shake.    Cleanse programs are available as 1 or 2 week programs. 

Age Management Lifestyle Cleanse

Age Management's lifestyle cleanse supports overall full body detoxification of toxins to decrease inflammation, improve function of detox organs (Liver, kidneys, mitochondria, and skin), boost immune system, and increase energy.   The Lifestyle Cleanse is the basic overall cleanse.

Hormone Cleanses

Endocrine disruptor chemicals effect the synthesis, secretion, transport, binding, metabolism, elimination, and overall function of hormones.  Low dose exposure of these chemicals can cause huge disruption in hormone levels and function.   Age Management of West Michigan recommends all patients doing hormone replacement therapy utilize a hormone cleanse every 6 to 12 months.

Hormone Cleanses available:  

  • Estrogen Hormone Cleanse 

  • Testosterone Hormone Cleanse 

  • Thyroid Hormone Cleanse 

Gastrointestinal (GI) Cleanses

Chemicals and toxins effect the production of digestive enzymes,  intestinal inflammation and damage, mucosal function, microbiota imbalance, microbiome imbalance, and motility issues.  Common symptoms of GI toxicity are diarrhea, constipation, pain in stomach, poor absorption of nutrients, fatigue, nausea, heartburn, bloating,  gas, and low immune system function.

GI Cleanses available:

  • GI Gut Cleanse 

  • GI Pathogen Cleanse

  • GI Candida Cleanse

Weight Loss Cleanse

Environmental toxins promote inflammation and overburden the liver, kidneys, and mitochondria which causes a significant decrease in metabolic function and the body's ability to burn fat.   Weight loss cleanses result in an average of 4 to 8lbs of weight loss in females and 8 to 10lbs of weight loss in males.

Common toxic chemical exposures

Bisphenol A (BPA):  Used to make polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins, which are found in many plastic products including food storage containers.

Dioxins:   Produced as a byproduct in herbicide production and paper bleaching.  They are also released into the environment during waste burning and wildfires.

Perchlorate:  By product of aerospace, weapon, and pharmaceutical indurstries found in drinking water and fireworks.

Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS):  Used widely in industrial applications, such as firefighting foams, non-stick pans, scotch guard, paper, and textile coatings,

Phthalates:  Used to make plastics more flexible.  They are found in food and water bottle packaging, cosmetics, children's toys, and medical devices.

Phytoestrogens:  Naturally occurring substances in plants that have hormone-like activity, such as genistein and daidzein that are in soy products, like tofu or soy milk.

Polybrominated diphenyl esters (PBDE):  Used to make flame retardants for household produts such as furniture foam and carpets.

Triclosan:  Found in some anti-microbial and personal care products like body wash and shampoos.

Mycotoxins:  Naturally occurring toxins produced by fungi that can grow in food or environment. ​

Heavy Metals:  Naturally occurring substances that can be toxic to humans and other living beings if they accumulate in the body. The most common heavy metals that cause poisoning in humans are arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and mercury.

Glycophosphates:  Chemical used in many herbicides, including Roundup, to kill weeds and grasses that compete with crops. 

Jet fuel:  Jet fuel contains a variety of toxic chemicals, including benzene, toluene, xylene, n-hexane, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Exposure to jet fuel can occur through inhalation or dermal contact. Studies in laboratory animals have shown that jet fuel can be toxic to the lungs, liver, skin, nervous system, and immune system.

Currently the FDA allows over 10,000 chemicals to be used in food production and self care products.  Most have known toxic effects to the body or have never been tested for their toxicity.   Its up to you to keep them out of your body.
