Detox programs are a good way to reduce the amount of toxins stored in the body. However, traditional detox programs tend to not rid the body completely of toxins and can still leave the body with residual harmful chemicals. In the past, there weren’t many other options when it came to giving the body a detox. Juice detoxes work to a degree, but not nearly to the degree the body really needs. Phospholipid exchange therapy is a way to remove toxins that stay in the phospholipid layers of the cells that cause increased levels of toxicity and cellular degeneration.
What is Phospholipid Exchange Therapy?
Toxins can be stored in the body for long periods of time, including chemicals from preservatives in foods, pesticides, and even some prescription drugs have the ability to stay in cellular membranes. All of this can cause dysfunction in the brain, nervous system and the immune system. While sweating in a traditional detox program can help to remove these toxins, they can still remain lodged in the cell membranes. Phospholipid exchange therapy, also known as Phospholipid IV Therapy, is the process of replacing toxic fatty oils that contain pesticides, toxic heavy metals and dangerous organic compounds with cleaner fatty oils, helping patients detoxify their systems more fully. This therapy has been practiced for some decades, especially in Eastern Europe and has become more and more popular today.
Benefits of Phospholipid Exchange Therapy
Due to the increased availability of PC (phosphatidylcholine), function to existing cell membranes and function to organ systems are restored. When toxins built up in the body are released, the body can become healthier and the individual’s quality of life increases. This therapy is especially important nowadays because of the rise in chemicals that are easily absorbed into the fatty tissues of the body.
Conditions Treated by Phospholipid Exchange Therapy
By getting rid of the toxins stored in the fatty tissues, several conditions can be addressed and the individual can feel an improvement in their body’s health. There have been a number of conditions that have improved by using phospholipid exchange therapy, such as heart disease, liver damage, kidney failure, autoimmune diseases and neurodegenerative diseases. Other disorders that can improve with Phospholipid Exchange Therapy include:
⦁ Sick Building Syndrome
⦁ Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome
⦁ Rheumatoid Arthritis
Phospholipid intravenous therapy is a technique being used more and more and for good reason. While traditional detox programs are still very beneficial, they do not rid the body of all the toxins lodged in the cell membranes. Phospholipid Exchange Therapy gives us the opportunity to provide the body with a deeper detox by getting rid of toxins that are stored in the fatty tissues of the body rather than excreting toxins via the liver and the gut in traditional detox programs. This allows for normal function to be restored and patients can feel a difference within their body.
