Dr. Nafysa Parpia offers a comprehensive detoxification program at GMA. The detoxification program takes place in two distinct phases:
The first phase includes supporting and cleansing the gastrointestinal tract, as well as addressing oxidative stress at the cellular level. This first phase is addressed through diet and some specific nutrients; it is a preparation for the stronger detoxification which takes place next. Should a patient have dysbiosis or parasites, these may need to be cleared with specific protocols before beginning the first phase of detoxification.
The second phase of detoxification is more intensive, and involves major organs and tissues where toxins and heavy metals are typically stored, or which release stored toxins during therapy. This phase often includes chelation therapy, depending on patients’ needs as seen in their labs, as well as other forms of detoxification based on patient history of chemical exposure, toxicity labs, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. Patients’ individual genetics are also assessed and those that that affect detoxification are taken into consideration.
Phase two of detoxification will include intravenous nutrient therapies, injection therapies, oral nutrients, colonics and sauna. Patients may notice that during Phase 2, there naturally comes about an emotional letting go. This, too, is a part of detoxification, and will be addressed with each patient individually through forms of mind-body medicine offered at Gordon Medical.
While there will be a general protocol, this will be highly tailored to each individual’s needs, lab values and sensitivities. All patients will be closely monitored during the detoxification process.
