Black Box Detox II (Detox Program in a Box)

Black Box Detox II, Detox program in a box

 

By Quicksilver Scientific

Available at TWIHW

 

 

Many people begin the year with a detoxification program to get back on track and start the year out right.  This year, we are offering the BLACK BOX DETOX II, by Quicksilver Scientific.  While it is a supplement regimen for detoxification, and not a diet, we recommended that it be paired with a clean, whole food diet similar to our Health Reset Protocol, or a Paleo style diet.

For this, and other detoxification programs, give us a call or visit our website.

Quicksilver Scientific describes this 4-week program as – designed to support the body’s natural processes of detoxification and targets hormones, plastic-related compounds, mold toxins, herbicides and pesticides, and even metals on multiple levels. The box contains all the supplements needed for the protocol as well as complete instructions.  The box includes the following products:

  • Nanoemulsified DIM, which acts to open up the body’s endogenous antioxidant and detoxification systems, calm immune system reactivity and support healthy hormone metabolism. *
  • Liposomal Glutathione delivers the body’s core antioxidant and detoxification compound and is one of the anchors of the system. *
  • Liposomal Methyl B-Complex provides B vitamins necessary for cellular metabolism and detoxification reactions. The liver has a high demand for B-vitamins during active detoxification. *
  • Micellized Pure PC delivers phosphatidylcholine, the main component of cellular membranes and a component of healthy bile flow, a key support for liver and brain during active detoxification. *
  • Bitter X enhances the body’s natural elimination process in the liver/gallbladder and kidneys, by introducing herbs which boost their normal function, pushing the cellular and blood-borne toxins out through the urine and bile into the digestive tract. *
  • Ultra Binder delivers a comprehensive blend of toxin binders, chosen for their overlapping specificities, to efficiently bind many different classes of toxins in the GI Tract. *

* These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

L-Lysine

L-Lysine is an essential amino acid which means that your body does not produce it but does require it for proper protein synthesis, enzyme production, collagen formation and tissue repair. That means we have to eat it and/or supplement with it.  Excellent dietary sources of L-Lysine are found in animal meats, pumpkin seeds, eggs and white beans. The average person needs between 800-3,000 milligrams of lysine each day.  Research and experience show that L-Lysine supplementation can be helpful for many situations.

  • L-Lysine is a natural anti-viral and disease fighting agent, known to stave off infection. It is best known for reducing the severity and frequency of cold sores caused by the Herpes Simplex-1 virus.
  • L-Lysine is important in the body in the production of carnitine, which converts fatty acids into energy and lowers cholesterol levels.
  • L-Lysine plays a role in calcium absorption and helps the body form collagen, which aids in growth and maintenance of bones and connective tissue, including skin.
  • L-Lysine in conjunction with B vitamins, magnesium and Omega-3 fatty acids helps to minimize anxiety. One way it appears to do this is by binding partially to serotonin receptors to prevent anxiety responses, such as diarrhea.
  • L-Lysine has an anti-inflammatory effect on the lining of the gut. Further research in this area will be helpful in healing leaky gut syndrome.
  • L-Lysine has mechanisms through which it appears to be able to fight cancer, reducing tumor size and causing cell death in cancer cells without damaging nearby healthy cells.

As with any supplement, it is best to consult your medical practitioner to determine if L-Lysine might be a good supplement for you. It is available for purchase in our office.

Magnesium L Threonate

Magtein-Logo-600pxMagnesium is one of the body’s most abundant minerals and estimates suggest that up to 80% of Americans don’t get enough of this mineral. There is no such thing as a 100% magnesium supplement because magnesium needs to be bound to another substance and that substance will affect bioavailability, absorption and its stool softening or laxative effect. It can be confusing when deciding which form of magnesium is best for you. One of the newer and emerging types of magnesium is called Magnesium L Threonate, a magnesium salt of L-threonic acid which is a vitamin C metabolite. It has been shown in animal studies to cross the blood-brain barrier and penetrate cell membranes while having no laxative effect. Animal studies have shown that Magnesium L Threonate (trademarked under the name Magtein™) increased learning ability, working memory and both short and long term memory. These improved brain functions, along with the fact that magnesium supports a large number of physiological functions, bone health, energy and metabolism, just to name a few, have made magnesium L Threonate a favorite new form of magnesium. Testimonials speak to improved memory, mental focus, energy levels and clarity.

It’s important to use a high quality well manufactured form of Magnesium L Threonate to avoid cheap binders and allergens. We offer Dr. Mercola’s formulation that is specially formulated for high absorption and high penetration characteristics in a non-GMO, hypoallergenic encapsulation.

Carbo G

carbo G

by Transformation Enzymes

Adhering to a gluten free diet can be challenging when gluten is used as a food additive and even as a filler in some medications. It may be present in the least expected places, especially when eating outside the home. And since gluten sensitive individuals can become very uncomfortable or ill if they consume unexpected gluten, Carbo G offers a helpful solution to both mitigate anxiety and assist with the digestion of unexpected gluten. Carbo G includes enzymes that break down the polysaccharides which encase gluten as well as the DPP-IV protease necessary to digest the gluten proteins. Improved digestion helps to reduce symptoms of bloating, diarrhea, gas and abdominal cramps associated with grain and gluten sensitivities. Our practice emphasizes the avoidance of food allergens and sensitivities and does not promote the use of Carbo G as a way to routinely “allow” consumption of known allergens. Healing and restoration of the gut are key to resolution of the root problem. This supplement is available by special order at The Woodlands Institute for Health and Wellness. We are offering 20% off this Product of the Month for the month of October!

Supplement of the Month: Healthy Hair Support

Healthhealthy hair capsy Hair Support combines several ingredients, two of which are effective ingredients-saw palmetto and beta-sitosterol-that work to balance healthy DHT levels. DHT damages the hair follicle, preventing it from growing hair that reaches the surface. Balancing DHT levels enhances the growth phase of hair and supports hair strength and integrity. All six ingredients in Healthy Hair Support are known for their ability to support normal hair growth or promote the health of hair in general. In addition to DHT-balancing ingredients, the formula includes other hair-healthy nutrients such as PABA, biotin, and stinging nettle extract.

Supplement of the Month: TPP Protease

by Transformational Enzymes

This powerful protease enzyme blend is designed to be used between meals and is formulated to absorb easily through the intestinal wall, working systemically in the immune system and circulatory system, unlike digestive proteases which are taken with meals to help digest proteins. Once in the blood stream, these proteases are picked up by white blood cells, which are a first responder to oxidative stress and inflammation, in the human body. When the white blood cells arrive at the site of oxidative stress and inflammation, the proteases are released where they act to break down unwanted and invasive proteins such as excess fibrin, one of the culprits in plaque development. Proteases also can break down obstructive blood clots, promoting healthy blood flow. In this way, these systemic proteolytic enzymes operate throughout the body to act as antioxidants, immune system regulators and anti-inflammatories. TPP Protease is recommended for patients with cancers, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease, diabetes, kidney disorders such as renal insufficiency, eczema, psoriasis, asthma, emphysema, and any other inflammatory condition.

Consult your medical provider to find out if TPP Protease would be a wise choice for you and to determine correct dosing.protease
