A poor long-term diet is both harmful to your health and difficult to quit. Our bodies become conditioned to crave food that is bad for us because of the addictive high-sugar contents of most diets. Most people have lived with their processed diet for so long that they have come to accept the negative health consequences as a part of their lives. The truth is that your bad diet is shortening your life and preventing you from losing weight. A medically assisted diet detox is designed to help purify the body to kickstart any weight-loss program and improve your health.
What Is a Medically Assisted Diet Detox?
You may have heard of a food detox before; juicing is a commonly practiced detox method. However, many patients attempt to perform a detox on their own, which is often both unsafe and ineffective. A detox is designed to provide a break for the body and help flush out the buildup of toxins such as processed food, sugar, alcohol, caffeine, cigarette smoke, and air pollution. A detox diet can include a number of techniques, including cutting out all bad food, following short-term liquid diets, or using supplements to help cleanse the body.
Undergoing a detox without the guidance of a medical professional can be dangerous. Dr. Cristy Thomas, DNP, FNP-BC, APRN monitors and guides all of her detox patients. Her role is to provide a custom detox plan that best suits your current health and lifestyle. She ensures that your detox will provide you with the necessary nutrients to maintain a healthy body while you gain the cleansing benefits of the detox.
How Does a Poor Diet Affect Your Health?
Many people are living on highly processed diets that have an excess of added sugars and unhealthy fats. For many, this diet and its consequences are so normal that they don’t realize the negative impact it is having on their health. People with poor diets often suffer from chronic health conditions, such as:
- Weight gain/obesity
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Sexual dysfunction
