If your Yes score totals 4 or greater, your current symptoms might be due to toxic overload and may suggest you need a detoxification program to purify your system of toxins and experience being more alive, alert and active !

If you want to consider doing a detox program or get additional information, you can call us at 937 767-1115.

 As no two people have exactly the same genetic detoxification ability, exposure history, diet and health problems, a single program is not suitable for everyone. We attempt to help you with detoxification support to match your needs.

Questionnaires are useful to gauge individual needs. Measuring extracellular water with bioimpedace analysis (BIA) is another useful indicator.


A BIA also measures fat to muscle ratios. Eliminating fat-soluble toxins generally results in fat loss, not muscle loss. Trendy water or juice fasting may cause muscle wasting. Targeted nutrients are needed targeted to support metabolism for daily activities and overall well-being, while supporting internal cleansing.

Blood pressure often improves, as does blood sugar and weight.  Belts often need to be tightened in just 10 days. While some transient reactions to detoxification can occur, bothersome symptoms commonly diminish or may just go away !

There are also blood indicators of toxicity,** which can be used to measure detoxification needs and progress.

We provide pre- and post-detox monitoring by questionnaires, and BIA at a nominal fee. We will be pleased to measure your blood pressure, weight, BMI, pH measurements, hip to waist ratio, and/or help you obtain blood biomarkers tests if you would like those.

Call us to help you evaluate your detox needs, find suitable detox support, and measure your progress.
