Detox Treatments

Detox Treatments
Our intensive Health Programs with up to 10 procedures a week require a comprehensive detox strategy to get rid of endotoxins and body waste metabolites and enhance patients' energy level. In our detox program, we combine specific procedures (electric lymph drainage, IR sauna, mineral water baths, peloid therapy) with Baja herbal therapy, alkaline diet and balneotherapy.

Lymph drainage and meridian balancing
The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues. Some health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up. Lymphatic drainage massages can benefit people with lymphedema, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and other conditions. While the heart continuously pumps blood through the blood vessels, the lymphatic system relies on the movement of smooth muscles to transport fluid through the lymph vessels. Health conditions can interrupt the normal flow of lymph, causing lymph fluid to build up in a particular area of the body, often in the arms or legs, where it can causing swelling. This condition is called lymphedema. People can develop lymphedema as a result of infections, cancer treatments, diabetes, immune system disorders and other diseases.

Importantly, physiology and treatment of lymphatic system is rare case of consensus between Western and Oriental medicinal systems. In Eastern system, lymph channels represent the meridians Chi energy is distributed around the body. Proper lymph treatment (such as machine drainage or Thai massage) restores the energy balance and removes the barriers created by diseases and "wear and tear" of everyday life. In Western physiology, lymphatic system is a unique organ creating and monitoring calcium (Ca2+) concentration gradient in the body. Calcium is a key signal mediator in cellular signaling, hugely important for functioning of neural and immune system. Lymph drainage helps to restore the Ca2+ gradient and align in the body.

Lymphatic drainage can reduce swelling, inflammation and improve circulation throughout the lymphatic system. Lymphatic massage usually forms part of a treatment program called decongestive lymphatic therapy (DLT).

Benefits:
  • Powerful detox of the whole body
  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Restoration of lymph circulation
  • Balancing concentration Ca+
  • Energy boost
  • Activation of adaptive immune system
    Infrared therapy
    Infrared therapy, or far-infrared therapy (FIR therapy) consist of applying infrared (IR) light to the skin. Unlike a Finnish or Russian sauna, IR lamps directly warm the body, not the air. The air temperature is actually moderate, less than 60oC, but IR waves penetrate our body up to 2 inches, 10 times deeper than regular heat waves and cause profound sweating. It was reported that FIR sweating is 15% more efficient in toxin removal than conventional sweating, which makes FIR a powerful detox procedure. FIR therapy speeds up metabolic processes, helps utilization of body fat and helps to removes toxins from liver, kidneys and skin. Infrared sauna is also one of the most efficient methods of weight control and cellulite removal.

    Benefits:
    • Powerful detox effect
    • Inflammation relief
    • Relieves stiffness and fatigue in patients with arthritis
    • Faster regeneration of skin cells
    • Lowers cholesterol level
    • Improves functioning of cardio-vascular and respiratory system
    Dupage liver and GI cleansing
    Liver is our main "waste management" organ, responsible for cleansing of >90% of toxins and xenobiotics (chemicals not produced by our body, from alcohol to drugs and food additives). Liver also removes dead red blood cells from circulation and produces vital enzymes for GI system. The world we live in is very hostile to our liver, especially in the countries like the US, which do not regulate chemical compounds. In the US, there are over 3000 food additives on the market (mostly unneeded, unnatural and some toxic) and hundreds more are released every year. Our liver needs help and dupage is one of the most powerful yet fast and painless procedures in the arsenal. This treatment consists of cleansing GI system and liver with magnesium combined with gently warming for 2-3 hours. In most vases, dupage is preferable to enema and colonic because it does not disturb or washes out gut microbiome.

    Benefits:
    • Powerful cleansing of liver and GI system
    • Reset and resting for hepatocytes, the main liver cells
    • Energy boost
