When toxins build up over time, they can contribute to chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, and cellular damage, which are underlying factors in the development of various chronic diseases. Detoxification plays a crucial role in the prevention of such diseases by minimizing the accumulation of toxins and reducing their potential harmful effects on the body.

We investigate 5 systems involved in toxin elimination:

Nervous System

Possible symptoms:

  • chronic fatigue
  • sleep problems
  • poor stress coping mechanisms
Cardiovascular System

Possible symptoms:

  • unexplained heart palpitations
  • increased blood pressure even with small external stressors

Possible symptoms:

  • unexplained weight gain
  • accumulation of oxidized forms of estrogen
  • menstrual irregularities
Liver and Gut

Possible symptoms:

  • fatigue
  • pale skin
  • brain fog
  • headaches

Possible symptoms:

  • swelling
  • stiffness in the mornings
  • decreased energy after consumption of red meat

The DETOX panel investigates genetic predispositions of 2 detoxification phases:


  • Hydroxylation renders toxins water – soluble and occurs with the involvement of more than 100 enzymes from the cytochrome P450 group.
  • Conjugation combines toxins with another substance, either with other toxins, enzymes, or amino acids.



  • Sulphation, which involves the conjugation of toxins with sulphate.
  • Conjugation with glutathione. Glutathione is a major antioxidant in our body, and through its conjugation, heavy metals, pesticides, and the most dangerous carcinogens are eliminated from the body.
  • Glucuronidation – the most energy – demanding process of detoxification, as it processes a large amount of toxins. It detoxifies drugs, steroid hormones, preservatives, nicotine, and bilirubin. Genetic defects in this phase can lead to Gilbert’s syndrome.
  • Acetylation , which neutralizes histamine, serotonin, exhaust gases, tobacco, and other substances.
  • Methylation – that occurs in four cycles that form the basis of methylation: Urea cycle, Ammonia cycle, Folate cycle, Methionine cycle.
