Detox is a shortened term related to detoxification. It is by now widely utilised within the health and wellness space. But in the context of this short introductory note, detox programs in rosemead, ca are designed to help afflicted patients deal with their addictions to or an abuse of a wide variety of substances which of course could include your everyday food as well as cigarettes. But conventionally, these programs may be targeting those with heavy addictions to drugs and/or alcohol.
Essentially, to detox means to cleanse. You are cleansing your body of its numerous toxins. And you are cleansing your mind from its dependence on substances which are inherently harmful to your body and mind’s health.
There is this old expression; wonder if you are familiar with it. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak, words to that effect. No matter how hard a person tries (mentally?) he or she is simply not able to shake off the chemical dependencies. And by chemical here is meant how the body reacts and processes substances entering or invading it. There are of course chemical interactions with the brain. And take the most toxic poisons you could imagine. The body may wish to consume in order to process but it simply cannot adapt.
A classic case of adapt or die perhaps?
Anyway, the clear objective is to use the process of detoxing the body (and mind) in order to help the patient lose his or her chemical dependency or addiction to drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, copious amounts of what essentially amount to unhealthy food and even compulsive habits such as extremely high volumes of long distance running or excessive sex with multiple partners. Part of the process is introducing the patient to healthier lifestyle alternatives.
