It may be alarming to think about, but your body will take in toxins over the years. These can be environmental things, like molecules, peptides, and other proteins that may cause diseases or more dangerous toxins you have voluntarily put into your system. When the body becomes dependent on harmful substances, detoxing might feel impossible. While medical detox is appropriate for some people, we find the holistic detox is often just as effective when it takes place in the right environment.
To remove every trace of such harmful toxins, you could consider a holistic drug and alcohol detox to help you naturally cleanse the body while treating the whole of you. If you would like to learn more about a holistic addiction detox, consult the medical professionals at Avedis Detox. Contact our substance abuse counselors online or call 833.514.0579 today to discuss holistic addiction detox and how it can be the first step toward recovery from substance abuse.

The Dangers of Toxins in The Body

It is believed that an accumulation of harmful toxins can, over time, cause severe damage to the body by straining our organ systems. This is especially true when it comes to the liver because the human liver is the main point of detoxification in the body.

Eventually, the following toxins can cause health issues like depression and joint pain:

  • Alcohol
  • Recreational drugs
  • Prescription drugs
  • Pesticides
  • Air pollutants
  • Lead

In addition to liver damage, these self-induced or environmental toxins can cause the following physical complications and mental issues:

  • High blood pressure
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Acne, rashes, and eczema
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Mood swings
  • Digestion issues
  • Weight gain

In the case of substance use, a holistic addiction detox is capable of eliminating all traces of the drugs and alcohol from your system, which will then set you up for rehab and further treatment to begin rebuilding a life that is both happier and significantly healthier.

What Is A Holistic Detox?

Holistic is the idea of addressing the whole as opposed to individual parts. When it comes to a holistic addiction detox, your entire self is the focus, and your entire self is what will be healed. This is accomplished through a series of treatments for your mind, body, emotional health, and spirit; you will be cleansed of the substances and toxins inside.

A detox is the systematic removal of all the harmful substances in your body. Therefore, during a holistic addiction detox, where you are being treated as a whole person with a mind, body, and spirit needing care, you may be instructed to avoid certain foods in favor of more nutritious meals and snacks containing fewer toxins. Some of the lifestyle changes you may encounter during and after your holistic detox in Tarzana include:

  • An improved exercise plan
  • Yoga
  • Access to herbal supplements
  • Therapeutic sauna usage
  • Meditation
  • Acupuncture
  • Chiropractor sessions
  • Massage
  • Nutritional education

Will I Experience Withdrawal During A Holistic Addiction Detox?

Your body has developed a tolerance and, possibly, and need for the substances and toxins to function. This is the effect of long-term use and abuse. Therefore, during a holistic addiction detox, you may experience withdrawal as the harmful drugs and alcohol leave your system and are not replaced with that which your body has learned to crave.

Some of the symptoms of withdrawal during detox include:

  • Body aches
  • Headaches
  • Stomach issues like nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Cold or flu-like symptoms
  • Fatigue
  • Cravings
  • Sweating

It’s important to detox in a facility with medical professionals to monitor and care for you as you go through withdrawal. Going it alone can lead to a relapse as the cravings and desire to stop the withdrawal symptoms can be too strong if detoxing without skilled, compassionate help.
