Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How does Detoxination work?

A. Our proprietary, 2-week wellness protocols use immediate release niacin (vitamin B3), exercise, and Full Spectrum Infrared saunas to mobilize the toxins from fat stores and enhance their release from your body. The niacin is ingested approximately 2 hours prior to cardio and resistance band exercises to get your blood circulating and to break up fat cells throughout your body and muscle tissues.

Niacin, in the form of nicotinic acid (unlike niacinimide), causes a flushing of your skin and a prickly sensation which are desired side effects caused by vasodilation. Approximately 2 hours after ingesting niacin (I), Lipolysis, the breakdown of fats and other

lipids by hydrolysis to release Free Fatty Acids and toxins, occurs in a four hour "window of opportunity" (II) in which clients will exercise and sauna bathe in two cycles of approximately 30 minutes, each.

The immediate-release niacin dose increases over the two week program in order to reproduce the red flushing of the skin to promote sweat. Usually the niacin starts at 100mg and may gradually increase up to 3,500mg - 5,000mg.

We utilize Full Spectrum Infrared saunas with therapeutic lighting, and the temperatures can range from 130 to 158 °F. These saunas are capable of penetrating up to 2 inches under the skin which allows for the maximum release of toxins in the shortest amount of time.

At these temperatures, individuals can comfortably stay inside the saunas for 30 minutes, or as tolerated. Cold showers are recommended in between the sauna cycles, and we test core body temperatures after each session.

As the bad toxins are sweated out via the sebaceous glands and skin pores, so are the good things your body needs; therefore, clients are given a regimen of replacement electrolytes, vitamins, minerals and essential oils. Berkey® filtered water and a special blend of calcium and magnesium are also provided for rehydration and muscle relaxation.

Studies demonstrate that the sauna detoxification protocol can average a 30% reduction in bioaccumulated toxic material while providing over 78% in symptom relief! See our Resources page for more information.

Prior to our program a physical is recommended. We can provide your primary care provider with a detailed breakdown of the protocols in order to make an informed evaluation. Also, we have medical staff that know our program who can perform a physical, if needed. Each day clients are weighed in and out, and body metrics, such as BMI, belly and arm measurements, and blood pressure are recorded.

Optional pre- and post-program toxin analysis, IQ tests, and instant drug screens are also available.

Q. How long is the program?

A. The program takes 2 hours per day for a minimum of 2 weeks. You should budget 3 hours to allow for travel, paperwork and measurements, as well as showering and changing clothes.

Some clients take longer than the average 2 weeks due to their exposures to heavy metals and other chemicals.

Here is a video of a typical daily Detoxination® session featuring Dan and Suzy Root:

This well studied protocol improves your body's metabolism and ability to handle toxicants even after cessation of our program. See our Resources page for more information.

Keep in mind that you'll learn to do the program in the first 2 weeks, so we recommend you purchase a sauna and our supplement kits to continue your Detoxination® in the comfort of your own home!

Q. Will my body continue reducing toxins after the Protocol?

A. Yes! Studies have demonstrated a sustained reduction in body burden over 4 months post-sauna therapy. This study was published in National Safety News:

Consider adding a Full Spectrum Sauna in your own home for continued detoxification, relaxation, pain relief, weight loss, lowered blood pressure, improved circulation, healthier skin, and even anti-aging!

Q. Can I take my phone, laptop, or tablet into the sauna?

A. YES! With Full Spectrum Infrared saunas, you can take in your electronic devices, hook up to the built-in speakers for your listening enjoyment, and even read your favorite book!

Q. Do I have to prepare for your program?

A. Yes, you need to be mentally and physically prepared to commit to the minimum two weeks of program time.

Depending on your current physical activity we will tailor your exercise requirements to produce the best results.

Nutrition and sleep are also very important to the success of Detoxination® therefore, we will monitor your eating habits and sleep cycles using FitBit Charge 2 units.

An optional ketogenic diet plan may also be advised that we will tailor to your needs, and this diet must begin at least 3 weeks prior to your Detoxination® Program in order to reach a state of ketosis.

You must refrain from using any fragrances or scented products while on the program as these may bother other clients and are toxic to your body.

Due to the amount of fluids lost during the protocols and the stresses to your body, recreational drugs and alcohol must not be consumed.

It is extremely beneficial to notify your friends and family that you are doing this program so they will not tempt you into unhealthy activities!

Q. I've heard niacin causes liver damage, is this true?

A. We use immediate release, pure nicotinic acid which has not been shown to cause any significant liver damage. Niacinimide, on the other hand, was developed to prevent the flushing and prickly sensations and is usually sold as "sustained release" niacin. Due to the potential liver damage and lack of flushing, niacinimide is not administered in our Detoxination® protocols.

Q. How much does it cost?

A. Please contact us for a free consultation. We must assess your needs based on known chemical exposures to determine if our wellness program is right for you. In addition to our wellness program, we offer a medically supervised protocol that can average 33 days.

Insurance usually covers medical testing; however, unless the chemical exposure is covered by Workers Compensation, your medical insurance may not cover our program.

We accept cash, check, credit cards, and Care Credit to fund your Detoxination®.

Q. Where is your detox center?

A. Our headquarters are located in Rancho Cordova, California, at 2706 Mercantile Drive, Rancho Cordova, CA 95742.

This facility will also be used to train, certify, and license others to incorporate our protocols within their own gyms, holistic centers, and medical offices in order to create a nationwide network of Detoxination Wellness Centers Licensees!

Q. Who cannot do your program?

A. Unfortunately, anyone who is pregnant, breast feeding, on psychotropic medications, or wheelchair bound is unable to benefit from our Detoxination® protocols.

In the case of pregnant women or lactating mothers, the toxins that are released during the program will pass to the baby. Studies have shown that breast milk tends to concentrate toxins.

For those who are on psychotropic medications, the sudden removal of these drugs results in extreme withdrawals.

Wheelchair bound individuals cannot fit into the saunas, and due to heat convection, the metals in wheelchairs become unbearably hot.

During our free consultation, you will receive a complete list of contraindications or preclusions for our program to review.
