Detox & Cleansing Services
There is now irrefutable evidence that toxic burden contributes to many chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, autoimmune disease, and neurocognitive disorders.
Toxic load refers to the built-up toxins and chemicals in our bodies from a variety of sources including our environment, the chemicals that find their way into our food and water and the personal care and household products we use. Once these toxins build up and the body can not detoxify well enough to remove them, they can cause damage.
In addition, stressors such as emotional, spiritual, and mental challenges may also contribute to toxic burden and block detoxification processes. You can also have neurotransmitters build up which can also be detrimental to mood and emotional stability.
Getting a complete assessment of these toxins is very important to be able to determine the most effective way of treatment.
Assessing the detoxification process from a genetic perspective is essential in designing a comprehensive personalized program that helps you to heal your unique challenges and overcome obstacles that are compromising your body’s natural detoxification processes.
At AustinMD, we offer the tools to test for these toxins and provide you with a plan to help optimize your detox mechanisms to help reduce your toxin exposure and support your body’s own natural detoxification pathways.
What is Detox Therapy?
A detoxification program works to rid your body of toxins and restore the body to its optimal health. Similarly, doing a cleanse, like colon cleansing, can help to better the primary function of the digestive system. Participating in a detox or cleanse can also help with pain management, lymphatic drainage, joint pain, irregular periods, increased energy, as well as aid in the body’s ability to keep itself healthy functioning properly.

Functional Medicine FAQ
At your initial consultation, you will be given an opportunity to discuss your personal health goals with Dr. Roy or his Functional Medicine certified nurse practitioner. This is an opportunity for you and our team to identify if you are a good candidate for our services.
Expect the consultation to last for 60-75 minutes. If you are a good candidate for our care, we will go over the test kits and some paperwork to get you started. We value your time and do our best to provide a timely service.
The initial consultation appointment is $350 to see Dr. Jenny, NP and $400 to see Dr. Roy. It’s important for you to complete the consent forms and any questionnaires assigned, 48 hours prior to your visit. This allows the providers to develop the best plan for you and utilize the appointment time efficiently to answer your questions. During that visit, the functional testing needs will be determined and any additional testing kit costs will be shared with you. An In-Body scan and a 60-minute Functional Medicine dietician appointment is also included with this consultation, which can be scheduled after you receive your test results.
All testing that we do is known as functional lab testing. Functional lab testing helps us evaluate your health at a cellular level and this testing is different from traditional testing because it helps evaluate the root causes of your symptoms instead of just diagnosing you with a condition. This testing is done through your stool, saliva and or blood often times we provide you with the kits and many of the samples can actually be collected from the comfort of your home or the local lab. Each lab test provides us with details of clinical data and insight into your cellular function and we want to make sure that you fully understand your lab results and that you can easily share them with your health care team if necessary.
Once we get your lab results back and review them for your mineral nutrient needs we will recommend a personalized supplement program. Our recommendations will include only the highest quality products to create more predictable outcomes. By doing the right testing to start with we can ensure that you’re taking the right supplements for the right length of time. All supplements and remedies are included in our Creating a Healthier You program.
Depending on your health issues, some supplements may be taken on a temporary basis and others may be taken on a more permanent basis.
Although food is the best medicine, supplementation supports the lifestyle changes and fills in any genetic weakness.
To determine a client’s treatment, Dr. Roy and his staff will review your entire medical history. You may want to request copies of your medical files to share with him.
Your medical files and treatments are held in the strictest of confidence; all correspondence is handled through our secure patient portal.
We believe in education in bringing about improved wellness and teaching others about the importance of diet, exercise, hormones and stress relief.
We do not accept any form of medical insurance or Medicare. We do encourage you to use your insurance for lab work, however some tests may not be covered. You may also use pre-tax dollars from a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Care Credit to pay for your consultations and supplements used for specific health problems.
To provide you with the most affordable care possible AustinMD has made special arrangements with all of our lab vendors to provide our patients with direct lab pricing. This ensures that you’ll get the lowest price possible and all lab testing that you receive. Some tests with some insurance companies will cover a large portion of the test. On average, you should budget $500-$1500.
A Health Savings Account (HSA) enables you to pay for medical expenses on a tax-free or pre-taxed basis. For more information and to see if you qualify, you will need to speak with your medical insurance provider.
