Regular detoxification is essential for a healthy digestion, well-functioning metabolism, strong immune system and top-to-toe holistic wellbeing. Modern Mayr Medicine combines a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic services with nutrition and exercise, thereby creating an ideal basis for long-lasting disease prevention.
How our ‘waste disposal system’ works
Dr Gartner likens the human body to a house with a kitchen, living room, bedroom, workshop and many other rooms. Every day, these rooms fill with rubbish, which is bagged up and left by the door. Ideally, the waste disposal service will collect the rubbish once a day. ‘However, we know that our waste disposal system has a limited capacity. If, for example, our lifestyle produces one bag of rubbish per day more than the waste disposal service can handle, that bag will be left behind. The excess rubbish will then be stored in places that are less vital to our day-to-day activities. In our bodies, this is the connective tissue,’ says Dr Gartner. If too much extra rubbish is stored in our connective tissue due to poor diet, excessive alcohol consumption or environmental toxins, the smallest blood vessels are pushed together, compromising blood flow. Vitamins and nutrients are no longer transported to the areas that need them, while toxins cease to be properly removed and excreted via the liver and kidneys. ‘This creates fertile soil for chronic complaints,’ explains Dr Gartner.
The right detox programme can counteract this process and reduce the strain on the gut to lay the foundations for a well-functioning metabolism and intact immune system.
