There is a lot of scientific literature supporting the natural ability of the body to detoxify if given the right nutrients and ingredients to heal. The liver is the main organ responsible for detoxifying, however, the skin, the kidneys, and the lungs can also cleanse the body from unwanted toxins.
While the human body is equipped to deal with natural toxins, modern life has pushed this ability to its very limits thanks to almost constant exposure to air and water pollutants, medication, processed foods, preservatives, pesticides, fertilizers and heavy metals. Detoxification, or detox, is the cleansing of toxins that build up in the body and – beginning with diet – it is the foundation upon which recovery is built.
Patients often do not see the results they want in their healing journey because their natural ability to detoxify is hindered. This can happen because of genetic defects which hinder certain metabolic pathways responsible for detoxification, suboptimal mitochondrial functioning, hormonal imbalances, the high total toxic burden from heavy metals or overgrowths, or a sluggish liver, to name a few. Here at Neomed, we work to address these root causes to optimize the body's ability to cleanse itself from toxins with our targeted therapies and protocols.
Far Infrared Sauna
The far infrared sauna uses light to create heat. Whereas a traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which then warms the body, an infrared sauna heats the body directly without warming the air.
In general, saunas cause reactions similar to those brought on by moderate exercises, such as sweating and an increase in heart rate. An infrared sauna produces these results at lower temperatures than a regular sauna, which makes it an option for people who can't tolerate the heat of a conventional sauna.
The ozone sauna is one of our most relaxing therapies – and it comes with a multitude of health benefits. As well as boosting the immune system it improves blood circulation, helping injured muscles to repair more quickly. It also loosens muscles by reducing the build-up of lactic acid and increasing muscle flexibility and stimulates vasodilation of peripheral blood vessels relieving pain and speeding the healing process.
This therapy is especially helpful to sufferers of chronic pain, Lyme disease, arthritis, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, breast implant illness (BII) and athletic injuries.
Detox Body Wraps & Scrubs
Our body wraps and scrubs use a number of ingredients that are combined to meet the specific needs of the individual, whether the detox objective is to aid pain relief, blood and lymph circulation or weight loss.
Mud is a gift from nature and mud wraps are an incredible way to look great, feel great and mentally unwind. A natural and beneficial way to rejuvenate, mud wraps help rehydrate and detoxify the skin, eliminate toxins, increase immunity levels, help fight against cellulite and boost the lymphatic system.
Castor Oil Packs
Successfully used for many years to treat skin infections and constipation, castor oil also has healing capabilities.
Castor oil supports lymphatic system drainage, blood flow and thymus gland health. It increases the production of lymphocytes which play a key role in immune function. Castor oil can prevent the growth of bacteria, yeasts and moulds, reducing swelling or itching, and fighting infections.
A neti pot is a popular form of nasal irrigation and it’s especially beneficial for those suffering from chronic sinus infections, seasonal allergies, snoring and rhinitis (the inflammation and swelling of the mucous membrane of the nose).
A neti pot can help relieve congestion, facial pain and pressure. When used in conjunction with ozonated water, it can help clean the sinus area of viruses.
