This clip focuses on how Dr. Parpia begins treatment with complex patients, particularly focusing on detoxification, using testing to find what the toxicant burden is in the individual patient. At Gordon Medical, you will see we emphasize detoxification. That is because environmental toxicants impair cellular functions. With exposure, the immune system is overactivated, causing hypersensitivity, allergies, mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), and/or autoimmunity. The immune system may also be misdirected, and does not mount an appropriate response to infection.More about Dr. Parpia
Detoxification is a broad topic, and includes any therapy that helps eliminate toxins, including heavy metals, persistent organic pollutants, waste products from digestion and other types of toxins. Therapies can include anything from nutritional support, IV therapy, colonics, and homeopathics, among many other types of treatments.
