Integrative Med Solutions Designs Summer Detox Protocols: “Naturopathic medicine enables you to utilize your systemic healing powers through acupuncture, clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy and nutraceutical supplementation.
For the growing number of people who are choosing natural, preventive approaches to health and wellness, spring has become the obvious time to detox. However, a summer detox using naturopathic protocols is just as effective or more, says Dr. Fred Lisanti of Integrative Med Solutions (IMS).
“Naturopathic medicine enables you to utilize your systemic healing powers through acupuncture, clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy and nutraceutical supplementation,” Lisanti says. “Summer is the best opportunity to use these tools to reset, rejuvenate and recharge your body and mind for optimal health you may have never experienced before.”
Summer is also the time to adopt a skin health protocol that goes beyond using a high-SPF sunscreen, he says. “There are many ways to protect your skin from the inside out. For example, consuming specific foods can enhance natural skin-protection properties. This may include carotenoids derived from yams, kale, spinach, carrots, watermelon, cantaloupes. There are also several fruits—particularly blackberries, apples, pears, peaches, cherries and figs—that contain anthocyanins with antioxidant properties four times more powerful than vitamin E. At IMS, we design individualized acupuncture and naturopathic treatments that can help with skin health, as well as weight loss, digestion and other issues.”
