Pro 7 Panel: Detoxification
Dr. Sima Aidun, N.M.D.
Because all areas of genetic testing are interconnected with one another, a weakness or strength in any one area can positively or negatively affect other areas. This is why we take a holistic approach to genetic testing with the Pro 7 Panel, rather than testing just one area of concern.
How Important is Detoxification?
We hear a lot these days about the toxins in our body and how important it is to detoxify ourselves. Multiple products promising to “cleanse” our system of toxins claim to do the job for us.
But the truth is much more complex.
Your body’s ability to detoxify is a cornerstone of your health and well-being. A highly operating, internal detoxification system prevents chronic diseases, especially cancer, and contributes to a sense of health and well-being.
Toxins Are a Major Concern of Modern Life
It’s true that we are daily bombarded with many different sources of toxins, some obvious, some not so obvious. There are “unseen” toxins such as radiation and pollution; “lifestyle toxins” like smoking, drinking, food additives, GMOs, and animal fats; “chemical toxins” found in drugs (both prescribed and over the counter) and everyday substances such as cleaning products and plastics.
“Toxins have multiple ways to enter our body: through skin absorption, oral ingestion, or inhalation.”

How Do Toxins Get in Our Body?
Toxins have multiple ways to enter our body: through skin absorption, oral ingestion, or inhalation.
Once a toxin enters our body, its first stop is the liver, where the majority of detoxification takes place. The liver transforms the toxins into a form that can be removed from our body through our skin via sweating, by way of exhalation from the lungs, through our gastrointestinal system with bowel movements, or through the kidneys with urination.
In order to optimize your detoxification ability, make sure the organs in charge of eliminating toxins (skin, lungs, gastrointestinal system, and kidneys) are in tip top shape.
And of critical importance is to make sure the liver has all the support it needs to perform detoxification efficiently.
Supporting Your Liver
One of the major detoxification players in the liver is called “glutathione”. Glutathione, an antioxidant produced naturally in the body, is present in every cell and is our most powerful detoxifier.
In order to optimize your ability to detoxify, you must have sufficient glutathione levels in the blood.
What information does the Pro 7 Genetic Testing Profile reveal about Detoxification?
The precise way to determine your body’s ability to produce and activate glutathione is through a Pro 7 Genetic Testing Profile.
This test will determine how well you are making glutathione, if your glutathione molecules are activated, and help us determine what level of glutathione replacement your body requires and how it should be administered.
Using precision medicine through genetic testing, you can know exactly how to care for your body’s detoxification system, ensure you are ridding your body of toxins, and attain optimum health and well-being.
