Microbe Formulas Experts Explain Why Some Detox Trends Derail Wellness

Boise, Idaho, September 29, 2020Detox is the first word many people think of when they want to boost energy, lose weight, or give their system a break from indulgence. But Microbe Formulas founders, Dr. Jay Davidson and Dr. Todd Watts, warn against any detoxification protocol that doesn’t first address one critical aspect: opening your drainage pathways.

In the article Drainage 101: Why It’s the First Step in Your Detox Journey, the doctors outline the drainage pathways: the colon, liver and bile ducts, lymphatic system, organs and tissues, and cells. They explain, “If any of these areas are stagnant or clogged prior to detoxification, you risk toxins being reabsorbed into your bloodstream and traveling to other organs. This has the potential to cause serious damage to your health in the long run.”

While moving toxins out of your system is essential for good health, slow and steady wins the race when it comes to cleansing. Proper and efficient detoxification must always start with drainage. To support drainage pathways, Dr. Davidson and Dr. Watts recommend a high fiber diet, rich in phytonutrients from plant foods to support liver detoxification. Plus, they suggest taking herbs and herbal supplements that support digestive health, such as fennel seed or wormwood.

Along with this, if you want to gauge your gut and drainage health, the first area to pay attention to is your toilet. They state you should be having two to three healthy bowel movements per day — not watery or loose stools, but gentle elimination without straining.

Dr. Davidson and Dr. Watts add, “If your health is less than optimal, you’re on the right track to detox. As toxins stagnate in your body, they could wreak havoc clear down to the cellular level. And that could lead to dysfunction and disease. Remember, stagnation breeds sickness.”

Microbe Formulas is a supplement company that emphasizes a healthy gut microbiome and true detoxification. They believe clear drainage pathways prepare the body for effective detox, without unnecessary health risks.
