I am in no way affiliated with the book or Dr. Joseph Pizzorno. I came across the book in my own detoxification process. I'm only halfway through the process at this time. I believe it is very important for everyone to read this book in great detail. My only hope is to help others suffering from the effects of PFAs, HABAs, etc.

This sequence is carefully designed to safely take you through the process of decreasing toxin exposure preparing your organs responsible for getting toxins out of your body and a final one week intense protocol to help your cells release toxins so they can be eliminated.
Consult with your physician before beginning the protocol and do not begin the final week intensive detoxification before preparing your body to eliminate the toxins.
The following only include a few key elements from each protocol.
Week 1 and 2:
The purpose of these two weeks is to decrease your exposure to toxins and much as possible.
Week 3 and 4:
This protocol helps clean up your gut, a major source of toxins for most people.
Weeks 5 and 6:
Preparing your liver, the major organ of detoxification, is critical for handling the toxins as they are released.
Weeks 7 and 8:
The kidneys are the second most important detoxification. And typically show the most damage over time from toxin exposure. Improving their function is critical for toxin elimination and long term health.
- Carefully avoid all kidney-damaging agents like NSAIDs, salt, and phosphates.
- Take the herbs ginkgo biloba, ginger, and gotu kola.
- Take NAC (N-acetyl cysteine).
- Take mineral citrates.
- Drink beet juice twice a day.
- Drink plenty of CLEAN water.
- Eat blueberries.
This protocol should not be implemented until the protocols preparing your organs of elimination have been completed. It is very important that you do not release toxins until your body is ready. During this week, which you can repeat as often as you want once your body is ready, you will intensely release toxins. IF you become too uncomfortable, and certainly if you feel sick, please slow down the process by decreasing the length and frequency of saunas and eating more calories.
- Eat an alkalinizing diet. (Page 189)
- Consume 500 to 1,000 fewer calories a day.
- Drink green drinks.
- Take regular, long saunas while drinking extra water and taking electrolytes.
- Get a massage each week on the protocol.
