Both metabolic and holistic detoxification are fundamentals tools in holistic medicine. In the same way that Chinese medicine starts with dispersing (and not tonifying) acupuncture point valves, in a similar way, holistic healing must first start with the “less is more” strategy, with the lowering of the body’s toxicity load.

(1). When our five emunctory (eliminating) organs are clogged, toxins and wastes hinder vital self-repair mechanisms
(2) At the Institute’s holistic retreat Center in the Pyrénées, we educate on how to detoxifyi the body from most carcinogenic substances, including heavy metals, nicotine, aluminum, pesticide residues, petroleum-based toxins, chloride, fluoride, among others. We therefore recommend full spectrum infrared saunas for everyone.
(3). Typical sweat produced under normal conditions and regular steam saunas contains 97% water and 3% toxins. Sweat produced from a Far Infrared sauna is found to be 80-85% water and 15-20% toxins.
(4). Chlamydia bacteria promotes inflammation and fatty depositions on arterial walls, thereby leading to strokes and heart attacks. Wine stops that, found university scientists in Illonois. (Source). By detoxing the body from many nefarious bacteris, the body is able to avoid antibiotics and better repair itself.
(5). Emphasis should also be placed on cleaning the colon and nourishing it with key probiotics and prebiotics, if only because the intestinal flora is linked to the body’s immune system, to its nutrition status and overall health

It has been estimated that 80,000 novel chemicals have been registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency since World War II, yet the majority have not been evaluated for their effects on human and environmental health. Approximately 700 new industrial chemicals are introduced into the marketplace each year without due testing of their reproductive or chronic toxicities.2 There are concerns about the interactions of these chemicals leading to a synergistic effect, perhaps more detrimental than each chemical taken in isolation. Further, toxins and toxicants may be stored in the body.1,3 Persistent organic pollutants biomagnify up the food chain, eventually
accumulating in human fatty tissues,3-5 such as the brain and adipose tissue.
