Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 24, 2014
Connie Casad, MD, a well-known and respected gynecologist, bioidentical hormone specialist and functional medicine advocate with 30 years of practice experience in Dallas, Texas, has announced a second trial to evaluate the health benefits of dietary detoxification. The second study is scheduled to begin in January with new participants following excellent results from test patients who just completed a 21-day detoxification regimen.
When asked to explain her interest in conducting the study, Dr. Casad said, "About 10 years ago, I realized I could no longer consume beverages or foods with caffeine after about 4 p.m. without having sleep problems. As I set out to understand why this happens, I learned a lot about food and environmental toxins and the effect they have on human health. What I discovered was that over time our livers do not work as well as they once did. One of the ways we determine that the liver function is not as efficient is if we cannot tolerate caffeine well. This discovery was an important factor in my decision to re-educate myself about human health and wellness so I could offer patients preventative solutions instead of just treating disease with medicine."
After years of specialized training and advanced medical education, Dr. Casad conducted her first study program in November. Thirty of her patients entered the study designed to evaluate the health benefits of a 21-day regimen of dietary detoxification. Twenty-seven of the participants completed the process. More than 80 percent reported excellent results, including improved sleep, more energy, fewer aches and pains, and most importantly, individual weight loss from 5 to 14 pounds depending on the individual.
“We live in an environment with increased exposure to toxins much more abundant than even 30 years ago,” said Dr. Casad. “The list includes pesticides, herbicides and industrial chemicals that can infiltrate the human body through food, water and the air we breathe. Constant exposure leads to these unwanted elements becoming trapped in the body's tissues which has been shown to negatively impact health and wellness and is believed to contribute to the development of chronic disease. I am not at all surprised at the quality of the results we saw.”
She continued, “A medically planned and supervised body cleanse can allow our systems to burn fat that stores unwanted compounds that affect our health. As we oxidize toxins, they become water soluble allowing the liver to process and eliminate them. Our study program included three meals a day, two of which were medically supported shakes. The third meal came from dietary choices rich in protein, foods without any sugar, and gluten-free grains in moderation. Individuals were encouraged to drink lots of fresh water, eight to 12 glasses a day. Snacks were allowed as long as they met the previously mentioned conditions. During the cleanse, we supported the body with selected supplements under my supervision.”
"I have done this program myself with noticeable benefits. I now will encourage my patients to consider doing this once or twice a year. An elimination cleansing diet of 21 days helped study participants to feel better, sleep better, eliminate headaches, lessen bloating and other intestinal conditions, improve joint health, and restore overall vitality while helping their bodies withstand all of the internal and external stressors we experience in our daily active lives.”
