The focus of our work is to optimize and cleanse your "Detox Funnel". Our founder, Dr. Fong created this analogy of the "Detox Funnel" to help her patients easily understand the complicated science behind toxicity and chronic disease. Scroll down or attend our free masterclass to learn more!
WHAT GOES IN,
MUST COME OUT!
This is your Detox Funnel. Toxins, fat, and hormones go through your Detox Funnel and then leave your body via stool, urine, skin and breath. When your Detox Funnel is working optimally, you completely excrete toxins out of your body and you are symptom-free.
YOUR DETOX FUNNEL
This is what your Detox Funnel actually looks like in your body. It includes your liver, kidneys, gut, and biliary function. Your liver metabolizes the toxins and releases them via bile and stool through your gut and via urine through your urinary system. You also release toxins through your skin via sweat and through your breath via exhaling.
THE CLOGGED FUNNEL
Too much toxin exposure, poor diet and lifestyle, stress, and genetic abnormalities can contribute to a full, clogged funnel. We can have a clogged funnel at any age, even when we are babies. How can babies have a clogged funnel? They can have high toxin exposure from mom during pregnancy via the placenta and postpartum via breastmilk.
When the Detox Funnel gets clogged, the toxins can't leave the body and get recirculated back into the system, causing autointoxication. This increases your toxin burden and eventually leads to toxin overload.
ORGAN BURDEN & CHRONIC DISEASE
Where do the toxins go when they can't leave?
First - they will try to leave through your skin and breath (causing conditions such as eczema and asthma)
Second - they will deposit into your less important tissues such as fat, muscles, and joints (causing pain and weight gain)
Third - they will cause problems in your more important organs, such as your brain, heart, and sex organs (causing hormone imbalances, cardiovascular problems, and virtually every chronic disease)
SYMPTOMS = ALARM SYSTEMS
What does this all of this mean? It means that your symptoms are NOT the problem we should be focusing on, as we do in conventional medicine. They are simply your body's alarm systems that indicate that your body is overburdened with toxins.
Instead of focusing on SILENCING the alarm systems with medications, we need to CLEAN YOUR DETOX FUNNEL to address the ROOT CAUSE.
