how it Started ...
With over 25 years of experience in healthcare and corporate America, our Founder, Helen Marie Loorents, faced health challenges that led her on a transformative path. Her 10-day detox experience in an Austrian Alps clinic revitalized her health and revealed the impact of toxins on well-being, beauty, vitality, and cognition. The solution became clear: embrace clean living. Inspired by Austrian Dr. Franz Xaver Mayr and his century-old clinic detox, used by select European wellness clinics, we've expertly adapted this trusted approach for home use. Guided by Viennese microbiome and toxicity specialist, Dr. Henning Sartor, our program unlocks centuries-old wisdom for your health journey.
How It Truly Began
Dr. Franz Xaver Mayr (1875-1965), an Austrian gastroenterologist, recognized the gut as 'the root' of human health. The intestines, vital for regulating and supplying essential nutrients, play a central role in our well-being. Dr. Mayr introduced groundbreaking orthomolecular medicine concepts, including natural intestinal cleansing and fasting therapies, activating the body's self-healing abilities. His approach involved early diagnosis and purifying the digestive system to reduce toxins and ease organ stress. Today, F.X. Mayr therapy is offered at select European clinics, and UPGRADERS® Method is inspired by these principles.
