The practice’s recent update is intended to provide a holistic alternative to prescription and over-the-counter medications for stomach issues, many of which come with unwanted side effects and can lead to substance dependence. Depending on the type and severity of gut toxicity a patient is experiencing, Patients Medical’s specialized physicians can prescribe a treatment plan that combines diet-based detoxification, lifestyle modifications, and supplementation, tailored to their specific needs.

Detoxing has become a popular health trend in recent years. Some common types of detox methods include juice cleanses, fasting, colon cleanses, and liver detoxing. While different detox methods work for different conditions and people, they can potentially be harmful when used incorrectly. A physician-created and monitored detox regimen provides safety and accuracy.

Patients Medical uses a functional medicine approach to gut detoxing, meaning it focuses on identifying the underlying condition causing a patient’s symptoms and treats it directly. Depending on a patient’s gut condition, the practice may prescribe stress management techniques, a whole foods-based diet, and supplementation with natural remedies that support liver function and healthy detoxification.
