A detox allows you to unhook yourself from the addictive power of sugar, flour, and hyper-processed, hyper-palatable food-like substances and eliminate food sensitivities. An intelligently designed detox will also eliminate foods, heavy metals, chemicals, parasites, viruses and bacteria that your body might be reacting to, causing inflammation and many other symptoms. We use two different detox protocols depending on our patients needs.
(Homeopathic Water Based Formulations)
HVS manufactures its Detoxosode®, Adaptosode® and Biosode® homeopathic formulations are pure water-based and made with a blend of five potencies. HVS's founder is the late Allen M. Kratz, PharmD, who explored the depths of both conventional and complementary medicine in his lifetime. He was a pharmacy professor when he became the first pharmacist to serve on the Editorial Board of The Merck Manual. His interest in complementary medicine was piqued in the 1970's and he quickly became fond of the principles of homeopathy. He became a renowned author, contributor and columnist in the areas of complementary medicine, pharmacy and homeopathy. HVS began manufacturing its highly regarded, professional-line homeopathic formulations in 1979 under the company name HoBoN, an acronym for Homeovitic Bio Nutritionals. In 1996, HoBoN and its memorable smiley face logo underwent an image change. HoBoN became HVS Laboratories; HVS stands for HomeoViticS or Homeopathics Vitalized by Succussion. Besides ingredient enhancements with the accumulation of proved homeopathic ingredients and ingredient additions to the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States, the original formulation line-up has remained unchanged for over twenty years and counting; a testament to the pioneering fortitude of Dr. Kratz. HVS Laboratories has been manufacturing its Adaptosode®, Biosode® and Detoxosode® homeopathic formulations for over twenty years. Each formulation is prepared with five potencies in a pure water base, an innovation by HVS founder, Allen M. Kratz, PharmD.
(21 Day Standard Process Purification Program)
This program emphasizes whole, organic, non-genetically modified foods (especially fruits and vegetables) that provide the vitamins, nutrients, enzymes and antioxidants the body needs for detoxification, as well as Standard Process’ whole food purification supplements that work synergistically to give the body the resources it needs to purify and rebuild itself naturally. The program is broken into three distinct phases described below. You will start with a transition period followed by a 21-day restricted diet. The 21-day program is divided into two parts. - The first 10 days will consist of fruits and vegetables only, supported by nutrition shakes and whole food supplements. - Days 11-21, will see the addition of lean meat and fish, along with vegetables, fruits and supporting shakes and whole food supplements. After completing the 21-day purification, the focus of phase III is maintaining this healthy lifestyle for the long haul.
