Benefits of Mind-Body Detox

Modern living inevitably exposes most people to high levels of stress and harmful toxic substances that may buildup and damage the delicate balance between the mind and various body systems. This commonly leads to a wide range of complex mental and physical poor health conditions that are often very difficult to unravel. Traditional Oriental Medicine, which in addition to acupuncture also includes nutrition therapy, herbal medicine, massage, cupping therapy, guasha ("scraping technique"), meditation, exercise, and holistic lifestyle counseling, helps unblock the accumulation of harmful deposits of waste in your body, calm the mind, and stimulate the body's natural ability to heal itself and restore overall functional wellbeing.

Modern research shows acupuncture creates a chain of reactions in your body that help kickstart and balance the various processes that have been shut down with repeated exposure to stress, chemicals, and radiation, and repeated abuse of food, alcohol, drugs, and other addictions, so that you eliminate toxic waste faster and more efficiently while minimizing side effects. Unlike most detox diets or fads that focus solely on purging the mind and body, acupuncture also helps repair and renew all organ systems on a cellular level. 

Detoxifying your mind and body can be extremely intense and cause common withdrawal symptoms. Receiving Mind-Body Detox treatments using acupuncture can help eliminate the build-up of toxins in the kidneys, liver, colon, and skin, and alleviate pain, headaches, nausea, stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia and other withdrawal side effects related to detoxification. Mind-Body Detox treatments may also be useful in helping reduce cravings, especially for certain foods, alcohol, medications, and drugs, including nicotine.

Sick and Tired of Feeling Sick and Tired?

It's an inconvenient truth. We live in a toxic environment loaded with synthetic chemicals and invasive pathogenic microorganisms, and we take these into the body everyday. Add in the stressful demands of modern living, exposure to elelctromagnetic radiation, poor diet choices, and the use of recreational drugs, meds, and alcohol, and you get the basic recipe for creating the ideal environment that supports a vicious cycle of poor health and disease.

Mental-emotional stress and exposure to germs, electromagnetic microwaves, airborne pollutants, pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, growth hormones, and heavy metals, as well as an over-reliance on prescription medications or abuse of chemical substances such as alchohol, recreational drugs, caffeine, sugar or nicotine, may have a serious negative cumulative effect on the mind and body and leave very little wiggle room to break out of the cycle of sickness. This often manifest as chemical dependency, food or drug addiction, weight gain, poor immunity, headaches, muscle pain and numbness, fatigue, stress, anxiety, depression, poor digestion, insomnia, and more.

Common Signs & Symptoms Indicating You May Need A Mind-Body Detox:


  • Chemical dependency, food or drug addictions (ie medications, alcohol, nicotine, cannabis, sugar, etc)
  • Weight gain, indigestion, constipation, bloating, or acid regurgitation
  • Mental fogginess, stress, anxiety, depression, emotional imbalance, anger, or grief 
  • Sluggishness, tired, fatigued or low energy
  • Frequently getting sick, unable to overcome illness, or low immunity
  • Neck and lower back pain, muscle or joint tightness, or headaches
  • Insomnia or poor sleep

Dig the Well Before You Get Thirsty

In acupuncture and Traditional Oriental Medicine, there is an old saying that goes, "Waiting until you're sick to do something about it is like digging a waterhole when you're already thirsty." Why wait until your health deteriorates before trying to do something about it? Once you're sick, there's only so much that drugs, surgery, or any other form of medicine can help with, and often times these make matters worse and keep you in the cycle of sickness.

The longer you wait, the harder it becomes to restore your health. If you truly want to be healthy, you have to take responsibility for your health before you get seriouslly sick. Ultimately, you have to take your health matters into your own hands. You have to dig the well before you get thirsty. This starts with ridding your body of excess toxic waste.
