Regain Control Over Your Health

If you suffer symptoms which can only be masked with medications, such as:

• Adrenal Fatigue
• Asthma
• Brain Fog or Poor Cognition
• Breast Implant Illness
• Chronic Fatigue
• Essential Tremor
• Fibromyalgia
• Gadolinium Deposition Disease
• Lyme Disease

• Mold Mycotoxins
• Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
• Multiple Sclerosis
• Obesity
• Rheumatism
• Severe Bone or Body Pain
• Thyroid Disorders
• Tinnitus
• and more

Your symptoms may stem from a build-up of environmental toxins in your body. This is where WE CAN HELP!

Less than 10% of ~100,000 chemicals have been tested for human safety!

Sauna Detoxification Using Niacin is the most clinically proven and studied detoxification protocol to reduce your body burden of heavy metals and synthetic (man-made) chemicals. Over 25 peer-reviewed research papers support the effectiveness of sweating harmful xenobiotic toxins from the body, yet this therapy is 100% holistic.

Dr. David E. Root pioneered the use of this powerful protocol in 1982 for treating workplace chemical and heavy metal exposure injuries, and it may restore your quality of life and health as well!

WHAT ARE XENOBIOTIC TOXINS?

The word “toxins” can refer to animal venom, insect poison, bacterial waste, mold mycotoxins, or other naturally occurring substances as well as heavy metals and chemicals. Any substances that are foreign to the body, like most heavy metals and synthetic chemicals, are called “xenobiotics”.

Most xenobiotics are fat soluble and aren’t easily processed by your natural detoxi-fication pathways in the liver and kidneys. So unhandled toxins become lodged in your fat cells where they cause mitochondrial dysfunction.

The mitochondria are the power-generators of the body, and fat cells provide the fuel for their energy production. When toxins in fat cells prevent the mitochondria from functioning, obesity and disease follows. In fact, most autoimmune, inflammatory, endocrine, and neurological disorders are the result of a compromised immune system caused by xenobiotics and poor nutrition.

Also, the toxicity of xenobiotics leads to oxidative stress in the form of free radicals. These free radicals are responsible for the tissue damaging effects of aging, and various age-related diseases, including cataracts, atherosclerosis, neoplastic diseases, diabetes, diabetic retinopathy, chronic inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, aging of skin, diseases associated with cartilage, and Alzheimer’s disease. 

HOW DOES THE PROTOCOL WORK?

In the simplest of terms, Sauna Detoxification Using Niacin (aka Detoxination®) liberates xenobiotics from fat cells which are then excreted with your sweat or captured by “binders”. But there’s a lot more to understand before attempting Detoxination.

In 1987, Dr. Root and his team studied capacitor workers in Semič, Slovenia, exposed to PCBs and other chemicals. The study showed that the fat content of PCBs was 200x higher compared to their blood sampling levels―a startling discovery!

After niacin and sauna cleansing treatment, the concentration was about 30% less in the fat cells and 42% lower in blood serum.

It is important to know that no other protocol is as effective as Detoxination in mobilizing xenobiotics from fat cells and providing immediate elimination from the body. When our Protocol is followed precisely, it is also the safest and most sustainable method for reversing the damage caused by heavy metals and hazardous chemicals.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND DETOXINATION

Liberation of fat-stored toxins begins with an unusual property of niacin (vitamin B3) which sets up a condition in the body called rebound lipolysis. To understand this concept, it is necessary to explain “lipolysis”.

Lipolysis is the action of breaking down fat reservoirs of triglycerides into fatty acids and glycerol for mitochondria to convert into ATP energy. During this process small quantities of xenobiotics are released from the fat cells along with the free fatty acids (FFAs) into your bloodstream and interstitial fluids surrounding the cells. 

This is why you may feel nauseous or have headaches when exercising or doing other strenuous activities―a buildup of toxin-laden lactic acid is flowing throughout your body.

Free Fatty Acids, Glycerol, and Toxins Mobilizing

When niacin is consumed at levels above 500 mg, lipolysis is depressed for up to 3 hours while the niacin dose is metabolized. Once niacin is no longer suppressing lipolysis, the body is able to resume energy production. Studies have shown that this restart produces an overshoot in the amount of measurable free fatty acids which lasts approximately six hours, as shown below. The spike produces 4x normal FFAs, and this translates to approximately 3 times more toxin mobilization than normal lipolysis.

The next step in the Protocol begins 2.5 hours after ingesting niacin, and it involves 20-30 minutes of aerobic exercise to push the mobilized toxins to the dermis layers (directly under the skin). 

Exercise is followed by several sauna cycles lasting 30-45 minutes of infrared sauna or 15-20 minutes of dry sauna heat stress.

Sebaceous glands attract mobilized lipophilic xenobiotics.

Far infrared saunas are preferred for their ability to generate sebaceous sweat more efficiently. The sebaceous glands produce an oily substance called sebum that moistens hair follicles and skin, and it is through this sebaceous sweat that toxins are eliminated.

While most of the mobilized toxins are excreted via sebaceous sweat, some will permeate the lining of the GI Tract. To prevent these toxins from overwhelming the liver and kidneys, binders such as activated charcoal and micronized zeolite are consumed. These binders mop up toxins and allow them to readily pass through the detoxification pathways and out of the body in the urine and feces.

HOW IS THE PROTOCOL ADMINISTERED?

Our Detoxination® Protocol involves specific, timed steps that are best administered by trained Detoxinicians, however, you can follow our self-directed, or DIY, method detailed in our book!

You can also engage a trained Detoxinican with our Remote Detox Coaching to achieve similar results as in-person treatment.

A typical program for Health & Wellness involves two hours per day for a minimum of 14 days (30 days recommended). Programs to reverse the effects of conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, candida overgrowth, and mold mycotoxins may require 30 days. Some extreme exposures, like gadolinium from MRI contrasts, may involve multiple 30-day programs spaced a minimum of 14 days apart.

Each daily session includes increased doses of niacin, polyunsaturated cold-pressed oils, lecithin, electrolytes, binders, vitamins, and minerals. In addition to toxins, a person can sweat out several liters of water along with essential nutrients; therefore, it is important to properly rehydrate and replenish the body.

You’re invited to schedule a  complimentary consultation to assess whether Detoxination is right for you. These appointments are scheduled between 8:30am and 3:30pm PST weekdays.

Visible results are quite common, too!

Take, for example, this Detective who has been involved in over 180 raids of meth labs in Upstate New York. 

His towels showed clear signs of chemicals and solvents excreted from his body; chemicals used in the manufacturing of meth.

The blue stain was identified as sodium hydroxide (a chemical in Drano).

Or, this First Responder of 9/11 from the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project operated from 2002-2007 that treated over 4,000 brave men and women. Swatches from this towel were tested and found to be morbidly high in manganese from the steel construction of the towers.

This project laid the groundwork for the Utah Meth Cops Project that treated 68 police officers contaminated by chemicals used in the production of meth, and a federally funded project that treated 32 veterans suffering from Gulf War Syndrome. 

We have served many different populations with a diverse range of toxic exposures. Here is just a sampling:

POPULATIONS:
• Couples – Prior to Conception
• Diabetics
• Disease and Cancer Prevention
• First Responders – Firefighters, Police, EMTs
• Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
• Vaccine Injured
• Veterans – Gulf War Syndrome, Burn Pits, Explosives
• Workplace Exposures

TOXINS:
• Amalgam/Mercury Fillings
• Chemicals in Food, Water, Products, Etc.
• Drug Addiction – Cravings
• Fluoride
• Gadolinium from MRI contrast agents
• Glyposate – herbicide in RoundUp
• Mold Mycotoxins
• Vaccine Injury – thimerasol/mercury, aluminum

As reported by our patients. Your results may vary.
