We are living in a world that even our grandparents wouldn’t easily recognize. Not only have we created considerable technological advancements, but we have also created pollution. The fact is, there is no place on earth where man-made chemicals are not detectable.
Despite our best intentions, each of us continues to ingest tiny amounts of chemicals every day, and they are making us sick. Dr. Morrison treats his patients with specific protocols, including detoxification programs that are aimed at enhancing the body’s ability to naturally heal itself.
Our bodies accumulate these toxins like autumn leaves that land in a gutter. Eventually our body becomes overwhelmed and our ability to eliminate through the skin, lungs, liver, and kidneys, decreases. These toxins are then stored in fat cells and block our body’s detoxification pathways, limiting its ability to function correctly. These chemicals are increasingly linked to failing health.
The body reacts in an attempt at self-protection by swelling up with excess water and additional fat. At the same time, the damage caused by toxins can lower metabolism, which can make us gain weight even if we are constantly dieting. They can also cause enzyme dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies, and hormonal imbalances, damage our brain chemistry, and affect our health on a cellular level. What’s more, they are very possibly linked to cancer, infertility, and numerous other health problems.
Toxins are not simply health-threatening substances but any type of dangerous overexposure that causes dysfunction in the body. This can include chemicals, heavy metals, or poor nutrition. These toxins affect each of us differently: they can be stored in various parts of the body, at different rates, and in different combinations. This is why there is a disturbingly large variety of chronic illnesses linked to chemical exposure.
In his many years of clinical work as a board-certified family practice doctor who focuses on environmental medicine, Dr. Morrison has found that a nutritional approach to health care is often more effective than conventional treatments. The majority of patients’ problems can be significantly improved by diet modification. The Morrison Center focuses on preventing and reversing degenerative and chronic diseases. Dr. Morrison treats his patients with specific protocols, including detoxification programs that are aimed at enhancing the body’s ability to naturally heal itself.
At The Morrison Center, “detox” has come to mean giving up certain foods and behaviors with the goal of creating a healthy lifestyle modification. Through the body’s own functional process of elimination, we can retrain our internal organs to become better at healing themselves. Cells will work better at producing energy and eliminating waste. Body tissue will become better able to get rid of excess toxins that have built up, with the result that internal swelling reduces and externally skin color looks better. Eventually, circulation improves, which leads to a lower risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes as well as improved liver and kidney function.
Preventative medicine is known to reduce the need for prescription medications and surgeries as well as lessen the likelihood of developing heart disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure. It is a short-term investment in your health that leads to long-term payoffs. Ultimately, it is the least expensive health care option available.
