FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE is the future of conventional medicine that is actually available to you right now. It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the patient as a whole, not just a specific organ or complaint. Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in healthcare that better addresses the patient and the needs of the 21st century. The approach focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease and not simply treating the symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
Why do we need Functional Medicine?
- Our society is experiencing a sharp increase in the number of people who suffer from complex, chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto's, MS and Lupus.
How is Functional Medicine Different?
- Functional medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease.
Are you hungry for good health? Experience the benefits of helping your body cleanse with the Standard Process Detox/Purification Program. The purification program combines a generous menu of whole foods with supplements that support the body's ability to remove naturally occurring toxins. This promotes a state that allows for toxin release. Naturally occurring toxins that build up in the body can contribute to:
- Brain Fog
- Fatigue or difficulty sleeping
- Indigestion and other temporary gastrointestinal upset
- Food cravings and weight gain
- Low libido
What contributes to toxin buildup?We are exposed to toxins every day. In fact, our bodies produce waste toxins known as endogenous toxins simply by functioning. Our bodies also encounter external (exogenous) toxins or chemicals made outside the body. Exposure to these toxins can overburden a system’s natural ability to detoxify.
Why do we need Metabolic Detoxification?Toxins can contribute to fatigue or difficulty sleeping, indigestion and other temporary gastrointestinal upset, food cravings and weight gain, reduced mental clarity, low libido, skin issues, and joint discomfort.
What is Metabolic Detoxification?It’s a series of natural biochemical processes responsible for clearing toxins from our bodies. In the three-phase process, the body unlocks fat-soluble toxins and converts them to a water-soluble state that is easier for our bodies to remove. We need key nutrients and phytonutrients to support each of these phases.
How Do the Three Phases of Metabolic Detoxification Work?
Phase I: UnlockThe body transforms fat-soluble toxins to an “unlocked” state that is more water-soluble, and in many cases, more toxic than its original form. SP Detox Balance delivers key nutrients.
Phase II: NeutralizeThe highly toxic substances produced in Phase I convert to non-toxic molecules and become even more water-soluble. SP Detox Balance delivers key nutrients.
Phase III: EliminateWater-soluble toxins leave cells, and the body eliminates them. SP Detox Balance delivers plant-based fiber to aid toxin elimination.
Is Nutrition Important During Metabolic Detoxification?The detoxification system is highly dependent on proper nutrient support for optimal functioning. This product provides significant amounts of protein and key amino acids including those required for conjugation enzymes (phase II enzymes). It's a good source of fiber and magnesium among other vital nutrients. Fasting or poor nutritional support during a detoxification program has many adverse health effects, including decreased energy production, brain fog, mood and sleep difficulties, and a breakdown of lean tissue. Detoxification is an energy-dependent process, and maintenance of adequate energy supply is crucial. SP Detox Balance supports whole-body detoxification.

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese natural therapy that helps to balance the body's energy fields.
