Botanical medicine is the use of plants as medicine, often in a liquid form such as a tea or tincture (alcohol based) or in a pill form. Plants are different from their pharmaceutical counterparts in that they are often more gentle than drugs and they contain nutrients in addition to their “active” ingredients.
This is an Intravenous or oral therapy using the synthetic amino acid EDTA or sulfur derived compounds of DMPS or DMSO to detoxify the body.

Part of a treatment plan will often involve individualized dietary analysis and/or the use of high quality, specific nutrients to address a patient’s specific medical needs. Some of these nutrients may be taken orally, some of them may be best taken intravenously or intramuscularly.
Sauna is an important part of detoxification because it causes a person to perspire. Certain toxins, such as solvents are stored in the body’s fat and so by inducing a sweat, one can excrete these accumulated toxins out of his/her body.
