Herbal DTX is designed to treat various kinds of chronic poisoning reactions, including but not limited to such toxins as environmental toxins, chemical compounds, heavy metals, and drugs. Such toxins are present in our everyday lives, including but not limited to insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, gas exhaust, artificial hormones, heavy metals, air and water pollution. Acute poisonings are far more difficult to diagnose as the signs and symptoms are often vague and non-conclusive. Chronic poisoning usually occurs following long-term exposure to toxic agents and their gradual accumulation in the body to create various illnesses and diseases. Furthermore, since the liver and kidney are two organs that are primarily responsible for metabolizing and eliminating foreign substances, it is extremely important to ensure that these organs are functioning properly. Individuals with chronic poisoning often have damaged liver and kidney functions. Therefore, optimal treatment must address both detoxification of the offending agent and healing of these two organs.

Pharmaceutical Drugs & Chinese Medicine: A Comparative Analysis

One striking difference between between western and traditional Chinese Medicine is that western medicine focuses and excels in crisis management, while traditional Chinese medicine emphasizes and shines in holistic and preventive treatments. Therefore, in emergencies, such as gun shot wounds or surgery, western medicine is generally the treatment of choice. However, for treatment of chronic idiopathic illness of unknown origins, where all lab tests are normal and clear diagnosis cannot be made, traditional Chinese medicine is distinctly superior.

In cases of chronic poisoning (from chemicals, heavy metals, and various environmental toxins), there are often many vague, non-specific, non-diagnostic signs and symptoms accompanied by normal laboratory tests. Under these circumstances, western medicine struggles to determine the exact diagnosis and corresponding treatments. on the other hand, traditional Chinese is beneficial as it excels in regulating imbalances and alleviating associated signs and symptoms. This formula is extremely beneficial because many herbs in this formula have been shown to have marked effect to detoxify various types of toxins, and to protect and restore normal functions of internal organs (liver and kidneys). This, however, is a gradual process that requires long-term commitment. Herbs should be taken continuously for 6 to 12 months for optimal success. By treating both symptoms and cause, herbal therapy effectively prevents deterioration and restores optimal health.
