Spring Detox

Spring is naturally a good time for detox. While nature renews itself, so should we.

Why is detoxification important?

Every day we are exposed to toxins in air, water, food and our environment, from carpet and upholstery to shower curtains and household products.

According to research by the Environmental Working Group,
22 percent of all personal care products contain a carcinogen called 1,4-Dioxane and more than half of all sunscreens contain a potential hormone disruptor called oxybenzone.

Research studies done by government, academic and independent researchers have found that before babies are even born, their bodies are contaminated with up to 358 different chemicals.

For most people, small doses cause cumulative damage rather than immediate symptoms. Continued exposure and/or decreased liver function can compromise natural detoxification systems, causing the body to store toxins rather than eliminate them.

Accumulation of toxins in the body can lead to general malaise
or chronic health problems including
  • Fatigue
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Decreased mental acuity
  • Skin problems
  • Digestive conditions
  • Food and chemical sensitivities
  • Joint and muscle pain
Clearing toxins from the body can relieve symptoms and renew wellness and vitality.

What is detox exactly?

A successful detoxification program
  • Reduces exposure to environmental toxins
  • Mobilizes toxins that have been stored in the body 
  • Increases elimination of mobilized toxins
Dr. Cimperman's detox program accomplishes these goals through a hypoallergenic and anti-inflammatory diet, hydrotherapy, exercise, and elective therapies that support the elimination process, like breathing exercises, dry skin brushing, sauna, yoga and massage.

Think of it as a tune-up for your body.
