One of the foundational therapeutics in functional medicine is supporting detoxification for our patients. When we think of toxicity, endogenous (internally produced) toxins don’t necessarily spring to mind. But the microbiome is a source of metabolites and inflammatory mediators that can either support health and detoxification or contribute to our toxic load and disease.

There is a bidirectional relationship between the gut and the liver governed by the microorganisms populating the GI tract, referred to as the gut-liver axis (GLA). It explains why we see deeper cleansing when detoxification protocols are combined with a microbial balancing cleanse. Additionally, biofilms, produced by microorganisms, can be an ongoing source of toxins. If left unaddressed, they can create a continual source of toxic exposure and an obstacle to lasting therapeutic effect.
