Detoxification - General Practice: The Integrative Approach. In this chapter we examine what toxins are, where they are found and how they can affect body systems to cause illness. We also examine the underlying principles of detoxification protocols. While these are commonly used by doctors with training in environmental medicine and complementary therapies, it is important to remember that the concept of detoxification will continue to be subject to rigorous debate in the field of medicine.
