Drainage Pathways Protocol

Dr. Jess has all of her patients start by opening their drainage pathways and it is the first step no matter where you are at in your health journey. Learn the foundations of health and how to become your own best doctor by starting here.

Overview

We’re exposed to thousands of toxins and chemicals every day. Our bodies are beautifully designed to deal with those exposures as long as the detox pathways and innate drainage function correctly. When these pathways are restricted, health complications can occur. An understanding of these detoxification pathways and how to keep them maintained is the goal of this protocol.

So what are drainage or detox pathways, also known as emunctories? You all know them and after your education, you should be able to screen your own drainage pathways to see where you might be sluggish or blocked. Examples are the bowels, the liver, the lymph, the glymphatic, the fascia, women’s cycles and breast milk, the bile, the kidneys, the lungs, the skin, the mitochondria, and cellular energy pathways. These are the body’s natural ways of releasing daily exposures that make their way inside our body. If these pathways start to become stagnant, you can’t remove toxins or exposures as you should. Eventually, your toxin bucket fills up, leading to disease.

If you can educate yourself, and learn to read and understand your body’s language, you can UNDERSTAND and KNOW how to ‘unstick’ your own drainage pathways. Complete this course if you are starting your own health journey!
