Detox. – is a term you’ve no doubt heard a lot of on TV, in magazines or in the gym. But why should you ‘detox’? Detoxification is your body’s natural process of changing dietary and environmental toxins into less harmful substances before clearing them from your body. Supporting the natural detoxification processes can help improve digestive function and may facilitate healthy weight loss.
However the benefits do not stop there as healthy detoxification also lead to a reduction in other seemingly unrelated symptoms, such as sore joints and achy muscles, feeling tired all the time or painful periods. Even if you’re fit and well, for many people a regular detox leaves them feeling more energized. You can start with a 2 week express detox.
Toxins in Daily Life
The term ‘toxin’ refers to any substance with the potential to interfere with normal cellular function which may negatively impact both your short and long-term health. You do not have to look very far to find toxins as they can be found in household chemicals, personal care products, and also in some foods (e.g. food may be exposed to pesticide residues or toxic metal contaminants). Your body is designed to remove these toxins via the ‘channels of elimination’, i.e. your liver, kidneys, bowels and skin; however it is possible for these channels to become congested, and this may reduce your overall health and wellbeing.
Why Choose a Professional Detox Program?
Walk into any pharmacy or health food store today and you will find a number of over the counter detox products. However, since these packages don’t assess your individual health requirements they are limited in their ability to meet your detoxification needs. Some of the over the counter detox programs can be harmful to your health, if they haven’t been formulated appropriately to facility the proper function of detox. A personalised program based on your specific health history, together with the added benefit of professional support and advice can have a much greater impact on your detox outcome – helping to promote long-term wellbeing beyond the duration of the program.
Herbal and Nutritional Help to Boost Your Detox
The Detox Program that I recommend incorporates synergistic blends of herbal and nutritional formulas, based on scientific research, to lay the foundation for effective detoxification. These formulas focus on supporting the three main channels of elimination: the liver, kidneys and optimal digestion.
Detox Diet and Lifestyle Support
Modern diets can be a major source of ongoing toxin exposure due to the intake of caffeine, alcohol and refined processed foods, which typically contain artificial additives, preservatives and toxic fats. Not only do these add to your toxin burden but put unnecessary pressure on your organs of detoxification. By minimising certain foods, whilst increasing your intake of plant-based wholefoods, you can enhance the effects of the herbal and nutritional formulas and boost your detox capacity. During your personalised detox program, I will advise you on the specific dietary and lifestyle measures that will help you get the best results.
