Chronic pain is a sign of inflammation and the best way to reduce inflammation is to detoxify. There are many ways to detox and it has to be done systematically. The best way is to start this detox is at the cellular level. Cellular drainage or biotherapeutic detox has been practiced in Europe for a very long time. It aims to stimulate the elimination of toxins at the cellular level with the usage of tinctures and plant extracts. Aging comes with slower detoxification pathways and more and more toxins accumulate at the cellular level. The toxins come from many sources like prescription drugs, processed foods, dyes, preservatives. Other sources of toxins come from the environment such as heavy metal, outgassing from new carpets, furniture, mold, cosmetics, pesticides, glyphosate, and herbicides.
When these toxins accumulate in the body they interfere with detoxification and proper circadian rhythm. A high level of toxicity is associated with auto-immune, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular risk, hormone imbalances, allergies, and chronic pain.
Cellular drainage can be achieved with UNDA therapy and/or Gemmotherapy. First, the waste must be moved from cellular space to extracellular space then into venous and lymphatic drainage. So the best next step is lymphatic drainage with botanical extracts. The normal pathway of elimination of toxins goes through the liver, kidneys, colon. Glutathione is the biggest powerful detoxifier in the body because it defends oxidative damage and neutralizes toxins and carcinogens. In addition, it increases immunity and decrease inflammation, and helps recycle important oxidants.
Milk thistle helps detoxify the liver and boost the glutathione level. Milk thistle, botanically known as Silybum marianum, is rich in Silymarin, a powerful antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory compound. Silymarin helps to prevent the binding of toxins to cell membrane receptors, thereby neutralizing carcinogens and biological toxins. Additional nutrients that help detoxify the body are NAC, Alpha Lipoic Acid, CoQ10, Zn, Selenium, Taurine, Grape Seed extract, and Phosphatidylcholine.
Using anti-inflammatory plant-based medicine would reduce the pain by keeping the inflammatory markers low. Important testing needs to be done to determine the level of inflammation and the level of toxins.
