What is Cellular Detoxification?

by Dr. Nick Zyrowski February 14, 2020

The body has its own way of detoxifying. However, when we become overburdened with toxins, we need extra help. The toxins affect the liver’s detoxification system, causing the liver to malfunction. Afterward, the toxins multiply faster than the body can remove them. Then disease symptoms start to show. 

Why is Cellular Detoxification Important?

pregnant womanOver 100,000 new chemicals have been released on the market since World War II. Every year it is estimated that four billion pounds of these toxins are released into our environment. Our water, soil, plants, air, environment, and bodies are being contaminated every single day. A recent study found that the average fetus grows in a womb contaminated with as many as 287 foreign chemicals. In the study, the level of mercury in umbilical cord blood was 1.7 times higher than the level in the mother’s blood. Even if you specifically were not exposed to toxins, your mother may have given you more than you bargained for. In this article, we are going to uncover everything you need to know about detoxifying in order to express health.

Types of Detoxes

There are many types of detoxes. Many people have heard of colon cleanses, foot baths, and healing magnets. However, none of these remove toxins in your body. This is why I am offering mystep-by-step cellular detoxification program to help my clients. I want to make sure that people understand how detoxification actually works.

There are two phases of detoxification. Phase 1 is where enzymes convert toxic chemicals. This changes their biochemical makeup. One concern is that the overactivity of phase 1 enzyme chemical conversion can occur.  The worst offenders are some of the simple toxins we encounter on a daily basis such as saturated fats, artificial flavoring, exhaust fumes, and artificial sweeteners. (1,4)

Phase 2 detoxification occurs in the liver when another biochemical change takes place in order to make the chemical water-soluble. This is what allows your body to excrete toxins through urine in order to express health. (1,3) If you would like further help with cellular detoxification, ourTrue Cellular Detox will give you a great advantage.

Signs and Symptoms of Toxicity

Toxicity has many signs and symptoms. Unfortunately, there is no one determining factor that shows whether you are toxic or not.  This is why it is always important to dospecific lab testing when possible. Here are some common signs and symptoms of a toxicity problem:

  • Skin issues: Your skin is one of your body’s primary ways to eliminate toxins from the body. Issues such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis are symptoms of a toxicity issue.
  • Inflammatory conditions: Chronic disease is associated with inflammation. Toxins will cause an inflammatory response in the body. This can develop into many diseases. 
  • Gastrointestinal problems: Those who suffer from an overgrowth of toxins can suffer from many symptoms. Constipation, leaky gut, ulcers, poor digestion, diarrhea, and diverticulitis are a few of them. 
  • Brain fog: Heavy metal toxicity is known to mimic dementia in young adults. Heavy metal poisoning can cause many symptoms as well. Most of them are cognitive. Luckily, I have resolved this issue and this personal struggle has led me to be able to help so many people with cellular detoxification.
  • Hormone imbalances: A major concern is what is known as xenoestrogens. Xenoestrogens are toxins that are synthetically made that mimic estrogen in the body. It causes symptoms surrounding PMS and endometriosis. Men are also affected by xenoestrogens.

Now that we’ve examined some of the symptoms linked to toxicity, we will discuss what some common causes of toxicity are and what to avoid

Common Causes of Toxicity

There are many causes of toxicity. However, there are some very common ones to focus on. We will discuss them below. 

Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings are silver-colored mercury fillings. Dental amalgam fillings are not safe! In fact, mercury is the second most toxic element on the planet. There are over 4000 research papers indicating mercury as a highly toxic substance! Yet these amalgam fillings are placed just inches from the brain and are constantly leaching mercury into the body. Research shows that the more amalgam fillings a person has, the more mercury is in their organs, including the brain, kidney, liver, and heart. There are countless doctors and institutions that agree that mercury amalgams are the cause of most of the 21st-century diseases our nation is plagued with. Some of these include ADD, ADHD, autism, and Alzheimer’s.

  • The World Health Organization scientific panel concluded that there is no safe level of mercury exposure.
  • In 1988, the US EPA considered scrap amalgam fillings a hazardous waste and applied OSHA guidelines to the disposal of hazardous waste.
  • Most European countries have banned amalgam use for children and women of childbearing age.
  • The average adult has at least 5 grams of mercury in their mouth. Only .5 grams of mercury is enough to contaminate a 10-acre lake.


When we think of pesticide exposures, we typically think of exposures from food. This is true. However, it appears the larger direct exposure is from what we are spraying in our homes and on our lawns.

The amount of pesticides is increasing every year. The U.S. uses 4.5 billion pounds of chemicals per year. We also use 75% on agriculture products. Furthermore, the United States uses 25% on home, garden, and construction.

About 25% of direct exposure is having a major impact on our children. A systematic review showed children had an elevated risk of kidney cancer associated with paternal pesticide exposure and four studies found associations with brain cancer. The studies also discussed:

  • Pesticides implicated in non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and leukemia.
  • Overall increased risk of acute leukemia if exposed to pesticides in utero or during childhood.
  • Most of the pesticides implicated were insecticides and herbicides used on lawns. Some pesticides were also used on fruit trees, gardens, and indoor control of insects. 


In the United States, our municipal water supply is overburdened by the poor quality source water. The only way that cities are able to meet the federally mandated water standards is to add more chemicals, primarily chlorine. Those with a well aren’t better off; with herbicides and pesticides from farms making their way into the groundwater and into your drinking water. People still believe today that drinking tap water is safe because it has been treated with certain chemicals that kill bacteria and other harmful organisms. The truth is that these very same chemicals that protect us from microorganisms are ironically linked to more dangerous diseases. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) produced a drinking water quality report that included 47,667 drinking water utilities and 20 million test results from around the United States. Water utilities nationwide detected more than 300 pollutants between 2004 and 2009. More than half of these chemicals are unregulated, legal in any amount. In water, there are two major chemicals added that qualify as major threats that must be eliminated: chlorine and fluoride.


You are exhausted all the time. You can’t make it through work because of a throbbing headache. You had to quit the team because you can’t breathe well enough. It’s difficult to complete even simple tasks. Your life has become nearly impossible. All the while, you look fine. But you feel sick and have lost your quality of life. Sound familiar? It is not all in your head. These are all typical signs and symptoms of a biotoxin illness commonly referred to as mold illness. The most widespread and under-diagnosed neurotoxic illness is caused by mold. Mold illness is a subcategory of biotoxin illness called “Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome”. It is an epidemic brought about by the modern way of constructing buildings. We live in the Era of Dangerous Buildings with 50% of our buildings (NIOSH, 2011) having water damage. Dangerous Buildings are those that are filled with biotoxins that your body cannot process because of your genes. Buildings today tend to create an environment that is favorable to mold growth, so where there is water, there is mold.


As we have discussed, 75% of the United States’ chemical usage (4.5 billion pounds per year) is on agriculture. However, we must consider the steroids, hormones, and antibiotics added as well. Steroids and hormones are used for meat growth. They are added to milk cows to increase milk production. In our food supply, these growth hormones cause abnormally early menses of young girls. They also produce an overabundance of female hormones in young men.

Antibiotics are also given to cows and farmed animals to prevent them from becoming sick. Cows become sick mainly because of the grains they’re being fed. This is because they were never meant to eat them. These antibiotics transfer from the meat and milk we consume into our bodies. On average, one glass of inorganic, store-bought milk contains the residue of about a hundred different antibiotics. Once in our bodies, these antibiotics ultimately weaken our immune system.

JAMA published a study that showed that women who had more than 25 prescriptions spread out over a period of 17 years had more than twice the risk of breast cancer than women who had not taken any antibiotics. There are now strong correlations between the number of antibiotics in food we eat and human cancer. This also includes chicken, eggs, and any other farmed animal that is not fed an organic diet.

Because chickens have cooped in cages the size of large shoe boxes stacked on top of one another, diseases spread rampantly between these animals. Therefore, farmers keep extremely high doses of antibiotics laced in their feed to avoid disease from spreading in huge numbers. Again, because of the link between antibiotics and cancer, 90% of store-bought chicken is estimated to have either cancer or tumors. Do you really want to eat flesh contaminated with cancer?

Man-made Fats and Rancid Oils

Man-made fats (AKA trans fats) include hydrogenated oils, partially hydrogenated oil and margarine. They have been used to extend the shelf life of foods and replace natural fats that were thought to be the cause of obesity. Rancid oils include vegetable oils (i.e. canola, corn, cottonseed, soybean, and safflower oils) and are used in almost every product on the market today because they’re cheap. Vegetable oils are very sensitive to heat and light. Therefore, upon processing, these oils go rancid very quickly even before they make their way into your kitchen.

These man-made fats are actually toxins that cling to the arterial wall. This causes inflammation of the arteries, which is known to be the real cause of heart disease. When you eat these fats, you might as well be ingesting plastic. Your body doesn’t even recognize them as food. They also attach themselves to the cell membrane, which causes cellular congestion. Ultimately, this process reduces the oxygen and nutrition that gets into the cell. Then it inhibits the waste from trying to get out. Eventually, these “sick cells” will lead to chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, or even cancer.

Other major toxins include: 

  • Vaccinations
  • Plastics
  • Beauty Products
  • Vaccinations
  • Household cleaners
  • Contents of your home (carpet, furniture, paint)
  • Electromagnetic field radiation

Now that you know more about the many toxins in your body, we will discuss how to remove them. 

How do I remove these toxins from my body?

There are so many “get rich” detox fads out on the market and it really frustrates me. I get frustrated because I know people are being taken advantage of when they buy these products. After no results, people develop the belief system that detoxes can’t help them and there is no hope. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

Detoxes must be done correctly in order to see results. The only way to do this is to do a deep cellular detox that cleanses the cells. Alongside this detox, a focus on a brain detox must also be taken into consideration.

The most comprehensive detoxification

Cellular detoxification is a missing link in modern-day healing techniques. Our world contains more chemicals and stresses than ever before, and our bodies are struggling to keep up. Cellular toxicity and chronic inflammation are the cause of many diseases.

This90 Day True Cellular Detox Package by Systemic Formulas is specifically designed to support the detoxification organs, detox the cells, and remove toxins from your body. The 3 phases were formulated to heal the trillions of cells in your body and decrease chronic inflammation.

The body has its own innate ability to detoxify. When we become overburdened with toxins, many things will happen. The onslaught of toxins in today’s world may be happening faster than the body can remove them. When this occurs, both disease and symptoms will begin to present themselves. 

Included in this kit is 3 monthly phases:

  1. True Cellular Detox: Prep Phase
  2. True Cellular Detox: Body Phase
  3. True Cellular Detox: Brain Phase

During this90 Day Detox, you’ll experience a deep cellular cleanse, purging unwanted toxins from your body, a restoring of your cell membranes, and a decrease of inflammation.

Step 1. True Cellular Detox: Prep Phase

TheSystemic Formulas Prep Phase prepares the cellular purification and downstream purification pathways for safe and effective elimination by establishing methylation, nourishing cellular receptors, and reseeding the gut with high-potency probiotics. 

  • Assist in preparing the body and brain for cleansing.
  • Support optimal liver and kidney function.
  • It provides high-potency probiotics.
  • Supports cellular purification.

Step 2. True Cellular Detox: Body Phase

Impurities move from higher concentration to lower, thus preparing the body withSystemic Formula Body Phase is crucial before the purification of the brain. In the body phase, you will take methylation support to the next level, achieve liver enterohepatic circulation cycle cleansing, enter the first level of intracellular cleaning, and support the mitochondria for optimal cellular energy.

  • Assist in preparing the body for purification of the brain.
  • Assist healthy liver enterohepatic circulation cycle cleansing.
  • Supports normal methylation processes.
  • Supports normal mitochondria function for optimal cellular energy.

Step 3. True Cellular Detox: Brain Phase

The ultimate goal is to nourish and cleanse the brain, and nerve tissue using fat-soluble “true binders”. TheSystemic Formulas Brain Phase allows deep cleansing of the cell and binds impurities for safe elimination. While giving intracellular and neuronal antioxidant support, and multi-mineral support for optimal brain health.

  • Assist in purifying the brain.
  • Supports the safe elimination of impurities.
  • Supports normal brain function.
  • Provides intracellular and neuronal antioxidant support.

How often should I detox?

I believe this is relative to your situation. If you’re someone who has made a solid effort to remove all toxins from your home, workplace and overall environment, you can detoxify your body less regularly. You will still need to detox now and again because it’s almost impossible to get all the toxins out. You are also inevitably going to be exposed to toxins in this very toxic world. If you make no efforts at all to remove toxins from your environment, you will have to detox much more regularly. I know of people who detox daily because of their toxic work environment, which is out of their control.

The other thing that you need to consider is your toxic load based on a toxicity test. When I work with individuals, a case history is just as important as taking into consideration the lab results. Together you can make a scientific plan to safely remove toxins from the body. I personally like to detox every 6-8 months. This is how I feel the best and maintain a high level of health.

After a cellular detox many people have reported:

  • Better sleep quality
  • Increased energy
  • Weight loss
  • Increased focus
  • Better mood
  • Relief from pain

You’ll also reduce chronic inflammation, which will help prevent:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Other degenerative diseases

If living a healthier, toxin-free life is something that speaks to you, then you should sign up for the CellularDetoxification Program. This self-guided program is newly modified to not only teach you how to properly cellular detox, but also how to keep your home, diet, life, and yourself toxin-free! Start living with more energy and greater health. I hope that a cellular detox is in your future.
