Detox

Every day we are exposed to external toxins from our environment and internal toxins produced as the by-product of our digestive and metabolic processes. Detox or detoxification refers to the body’s ability to neutralize and eliminate harmful chemicals and to rediscover its ideal balance. ###

This helps to increase energy and vitality, creating a foundation for optimum health, longevity and personal growth. Thus, a Detox program is recommended for individuals who

  • have chronic digestive problems
  • have impaired liver function due to unhealthy lifestyle or chronic illness
  • are on medication affecting the liver
  • are on hormone replacement therapy
  • have PMS and moodiness
  • have chronic headaches
  • have chronic skin conditions
  • have gallbladder pathology

If our body has the proper nutrition and if the organs of detoxification – skin, bowels, liver, kidneys and lungs – are functioning at optimal levels, our body is able to eliminate unwanted substances safely and efficiently through cellular processes via these organs. This manifests as elimination through perspiration, bowel elimination, urination and respiration.

This process has a huge affect on our body and common symptoms alleviated by detox may include:

  • Headaches
  • Stiff, aching joints and muscles
  • Susceptibility to infections
  • Respiratory difficulties
  • Allergies
  • Digestive problems
  • Constipation
  • Acne
  • Low energy and fatigue
  • Restlessness and irritability
  • Mental fogginess
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Depression and moodiness
  • Poor quality sleep and insomnia
