Jonathan Hunsaker: Welcome, everyone. On today’s episode of Ask the Doc, we are talking about detoxification and when do you know that you’re healthy enough to do a detox.
Welcome, everyone. Jonathan Hunsaker here with Organixx. And I’m with my good friend, master formulator, the one and only Dr. Daniel Nuzum. He’s joining me here in person. We’re trying a little bit different format here for Ask the Doc.
Today’s question comes from Tammy, and she writes, “Hi, Doc, you stated that you have to be stable before attempting detox. How do you know you are stable and okay to proceed?”
Dr. Daniel Nuzum: Okay. Well, that would depend on your energy level.
A lot of people, if you’re really, really ran down and just barely hanging on, then that’s probably not a good time to jump into a detox. You don’t need to stress yourself more; you need to build yourself up a little bit, then you can start to detoxify.
I equate stabilization as being out of acute danger. You’re stable when you’re not in an acutely life-threatening situation. You’re out of that. Everything’s stable, your system is doing well, you’re not in an acutely ill situation. That’s when you’re stable when you’re out of that acute stage. That’s when someone’s stable.
From that point on, the progression in order to really heal from something, they have to detoxify. That’s the most direct step in the process of healing after that.
Jonathan Hunsaker: And I think you bring up a really good point because it’s understanding when you’re only—you’re stable if you’re NOT in that acute life-threatening stage. Because I can imagine, as well as myself, you think “Okay, well, I’m just not sure if I’m feeling good enough yet to do a detox. I’m not feeling good enough.” But sometimes you’re not going to feel good enough until you do a detox. So, it’s really understanding that you don’t need to be a hundred percent to start your detox, right?
Dr. Daniel Nuzum: Correct.
Jonathan Hunsaker: Perfect. Are there some other—just give us an idea like, how do I know “Okay, yes I’m ready.” And you say energy levels, like give me an idea.
Dr. Daniel Nuzum: If someone is functional; they’re able to get up, get around, and they’re feeding themselves, they’re eating, they’re able to use the bathroom, they’re not— they’re not in the hospital. And they’re not in an immediate health crisis. That’s when they’re stable. When they’re not in that situation.
So, the things are stable; the fire is settled down. It may still be there a little bit, but it’s settled down, and it’s manageable. So, the symptoms of whatever it is they’re dealing with are managed at the moment. That’s when they’re stable. But in order to progress from stable to getting well, they have to detoxify.
And so, once you’re stable, once things are settled down and managed properly, you’re not in acute pain, you do not have any immediate health crisis, then you’re probably in a stable state. And the way to progress to get healthier at that point is to detoxify.
Jonathan Hunsaker: Absolutely. It’s a great explanation, great detail. I love the way that you explain things. Let me ask you this as well when we’re—when somebody’s about to do a detox, and depending on their health stage, I would imagine it makes a difference on how intense of a detox that you do. Yes?
Dr. Daniel Nuzum: Oh, especially if they’ve never done it before. I tell people, let’s say you’re 30 years old, 40 years old, 50 years old and you’ve never detoxed. I equate that to living in a house for 30, 40, 50 years and never cleaning it. To really clean it out, if you try to do that all at once, it’s just going to make a mess. It would be a catastrophe. You know what I’m saying?
And so, step by step, and take it through a process. And that’s what our Detoxx program was designed for, for people that had never done a detox before. Never purged their system or cleansed their system before. And we can do it for one month, you can do it for two months, you can do for three months, on this whole program and it’s that progression, it’s that time that allows for that deep cleaning to happen. That’s super important.
Jonathan Hunsaker: Well, perfect. Thank you, Doc. Thank you for sharing all of your wealth of information with us. Tammy, thank you for sending in your question.

  1. Taking ciprofloxacin 500 Mg 2x/day for two weeks due to infection contracted from mesh ventral hernia repair. Would love to detox. Is it safe to detox now? Was taking levaquin 500 Mg 1/day, but stopped due to tendon issues. Praying that cipro will have less side effects.
    Please help.
