Before Conception Health
Maybe everybody else has already heard of Before Conception Health here in Desert Hot Springs at 68257 Calle Azteca, but it's news to me. Their goal is to detoxify future mothers before they become pregnant. They list three doctors on their team. Two are not MDs and the third makes no claim to be an MD, so from the city's point of view this operates simply as another hot water spa resort, and I believe Transient Occupancy Tax is collected.
Sounds like a good business idea. You can get most people to spend more on their children than on themselves.
They're doing business pretty similarly to all the other spas in town. They all make health claims that we like to believe, and that they have anecdotal evidence to support, but none can afford the science work required to really prove what they say.
Does soaking in hot mineral pools improve one's health? Thousands of years of human experience say yes, but the scientific world has not researched it much because there's not enough money in it.

I would ask them to provide a list of toxins and proof that they are actually being removed.
