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
• Lyme Disease

• Mold Mycotoxins
• Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
• Multiple Sclerosis
• Obesity
• Rheumatism
• Severe Bone or Body Pain
• 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 unwanted 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 is now available to YOU!


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 are not easily processed by your natural detoxification pathways in the liver and kidneys. So unhandled toxins become lodged in your fat cells where they cause mitochondrial dysfunction.

Toxins in fat, blood vessel, and interstitial fluid.

The mitochondria are the power-generators of the body, and fat cells provide the fuel for their energy production. When toxic 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. 


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 xenobiotics 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.

Now for some geek-speak about our Protocol! [skip]

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”.

Free Fatty Acids, Glycerol, and Toxins Mobilizing

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.

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 a spike in the amount of measurable free fatty acids which lasts approximately four hours, as shown in Figure 1. The spike produces 4x normal FFAs, and this translates to approximately 200% more toxin mobilization than normal lipolysis.

Niacin-Induced Rebound Lipolysis
Approximately 200% increase in toxin mobilization!

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.

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.

Sebaceous glands attract mobilized lipophilic xenobiotics.

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.


The Protocol involves specific, timed steps that are best administered by trained Detoxinicians at our Centers. Our qualified staff is able to ensure the greatest outcomes and best overall experiences.

A typical program for Health & Wellness involves two hours per day for a minimum of 14 days. 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 toxic exposures, like gadolinium from MRI contrasts, may involve multiple 30-day programs spaced 30-45 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.

We provide comprehensive Immersion Therapy according to your individual needs, as assessed from our complimentary consultation. In additon to Detoxination, services recommended may include chriopractic care, laser therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, microcurrent therapy, nutrition, and more.


A single 30-day program can reduce the toxic body burden by 30-65%, and for many this can lead to a 78-100% improvement in reported symptoms. Here’s a sampling of some of the reported benefits from our patients:

Feel Better, Look Younger
Improved Overall Health
Greater Energy
Lifted Brain Fog
Raised I.Q. & Cognition
More Restful Sleep
Controlled Weight

Reduced Aches and Pains
Disease Prevention Peace of Mind
Better Skin and Body Scent
Heightened Perception of Senses
Coordination and muscle control
Happier Attitude

Subjective results are wonderful, but we also offer blood, urine, and hair testing for pre- and post-Detoxination. These tests can include heavy metals and common chemicals, including glyphosate.

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.

Or, this First Responder of 9/11 from the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project operated from 2002-2007 that treated over 2,200 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.
