The Health Talk series by Dr. Prritii



Every new year we see many people take a pledge that with this new year I will live healthy life , adopt healthy lifestyle, improve my eating habits, avoid binging, will stay fit, loose those extra pounds and will look and feel fit and finally this becomes their new year resolution. To achieve this resolution they get their gyms membership renewed, someone join yoga classes, some people find their dietician contact in their list and follow the diet plan, and many other things just to look slim. They fail to understand this can also be harmful because more fat in your body indicates presence of toxins, when we try to adopt these instant weight loss strategies, sudden detoxing can cause release of toxins into our blood circulation and can lead to ill effects.


There can also be release of organic pollutants into the blood which can also harm your internal organs. These pollutants are man made organic compounds and can be found anywhere on water, soil and air and can accumulate in human tissue, and have been linked to variety of illnesses such as obesity, increased sugar levels, low of energy, brain fog etc.

Research done by National Health And Nutrition Examination Survey 1999-2002 states that these organic compound pollutants are associated with risk of type-2 diabetes by increasing insulin resistance and these compounds can also be one of the major cause of obesity. it is commonly seen that serum concentration of these organic compounds are elevated in people who have lost weight. Hence, immediate weight loss strategy can lead to increased concentration of organic compound pollutants. There are many scientific evidences that suggest that increased level of toxicity in humans can be due to these pollutants but still they are not addressed in a manner they should be.


Increased BMI is the ratio of body weight in kilogram divided by height in square meter (Kg/m2) and waist circumference can be strongly associated with high levels of organic pollutants in adipose tissue. These pollutants are so harmful to us that it disturbs our hormonal system which further leads to development of insulin resistance which is an important marker of weight gain. These days detox diets are very popular dieting strategies ,that helps in toxin elimination and weight management, but really is this giving us desired results, sometimes it is commonly seen despite following healthy organic plant based diet, fitness regime but still people do not get the desired results which they expect from themselves, they suffer from many illnesses, they have managed their weight but then also are hypertensive, this is majorly because detoxification cycle is not completed and rather toxins are released into the blood. Weight loss induced toxicity also decreases the ability of our muscles and muscle wasting starts because muscles are not able to use fats. It is found that organochlorines released into the blood during weight loss are associated with a reduction in thyroid efficiency as thyroid is not able to release enough hormones and it slows down the metabolism and our body is not able to burn sufficient amount of calories.


What are the sources of these toxins and how they enter into human body?


70% of people in India are sick and unhealthy due to toxins and harmful chemicals.

They are present everywhere, canned food items, industrial pollutants, certain pesticides, many skin products, make up products. BPA is one of the commonly known source and it is used to make protective linings and coatings of food and drinks can. We should try to avoid our exposure to these organic compounds but its really not easy to do.


Today more than 77,000 chemicals are in active production. Our exposure to these chemicals has increased a lot . More than 3,000 chemicals are added to our food supply. More than 10,000 chemicals in the form of solvents, emulsifiers and preservatives are used in food processing and storage. Moreover, most of the people have adapted ALCOHOL in their lifestyle.


The following symptoms are often related to toxicities: allergies, acne, anxiety, burning skin, brain fog, chronic fatigue, chemical sensitivities, depression, eczema, frequent colds or flu, insomnia, loss of dexterity, low body temperature, memory loss, mood swings, muscle & joint pains and poor concentration.


How our body detoxifies ?


Detoxification is the body's process of eliminate toxins, which it majorly does through liver, and kidneys. Also, our lymphatic system, digestive tract, skin, and lungs also play a part in body detoxification. In summary, these organs create detoxification pathways in the body.

Liver plays a major role in detoxification, it changes fat like molecules (it can be mostly pollutants) and that can be excreted safely from our body. Some toxins can also be excreted through sweat that's why it's majorly said that exercise is good for our health because it also helps us in removing toxins from our body.

How can we detoxify efficiently and loose weight and how Infra Red Rays works ?


When we loose weight its important to also detoxify efficiently, the best method is non-invasive Mesotherapy, in which infra red rays are used is the best way because it helps in weight loss and also to detoxify.


Far InfraRed therapy involves the use of Far InfraRed rays to gently heal, soothe, stimulate and detox the body as well as the mind. Far InfraRed Rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate into the inner-most regions of the tissues, muscles and bones in the human body. The profuse sweating achieved after a few minutes in Detox carries off deeply embedded impurities, dead skin & toxins. This detoxification is known as the safest natural heat therapy for sweating & relaxation.


This Infra red detox creates same amount of perspiration as a10 km run, which burns 600-900 calories in just 45 minutes. As our body increases sweat production, to cool itself, our heart works harder to boost circulation, thus it improves our cardiovascular system. This also helps in strengthening our immune system as when our body temperature is raised our system starts fighting with this "artificial fever". Sweating helps to detoxify your body, by removing the accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium and cholesterol.


If we are not perspiring we are missing as much as 40% of our body's ability to get rid of toxins. Thus, there is reduction in heavy metals which has been directly related to metabolic imbalance in body resulting in a decrease in fat stored (lipophilic) toxins which are a big hurdle in weight loss.


"Oligoscan" is a test that helps in checking toxins present in body.
