Is it Time to Detox?

Detoxification is a process that your body undertakes every day to help eliminate toxins and restore a healthy balance. Your body is constantly exposed to toxins from the external world, as well as those created within. The human body is amazing in the way that it has evolved since prehistoric times to adjust to the ever- changing world; but what happens when the toxins in our world are evolving faster than humans? This can increase the body’s toxic burden and impact on its ability to clear toxins.

Do you want your body to effectively eliminate toxins you are exposed to? Or maybe you are interested in detoxing because you want to look and feel even healthier!

What’s Involved in Detox?

An effective detoxification program involves reducing the toxins that you are exposed to on a daily basis, whilst strengthening the function of your detox organs to process and eliminate toxins stored in your body. This is known as reducing the toxic burden and improving your toxic resistance, thereby enhancing your ability to cope with toxins. Detox can greatly improve your overall health and wellbeing. 


Detox and Renew Your Life
As your practitioner I create a detoxification program that is tailored to your individual needs. When detoxing, it is important to reduce the toxic load that you are encountering in your daily life. I encourage you with clean eating and reducing your exposure to dietary toxins. I show you how to follow a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, beneficial fats, and containing alkalising and anti-inflammatory foods. I also recommend herbal formulations, probiotics and nutrients to support detoxification.

The following ingredients can help promote your detoxification abilities:

  • Milk thistle, green tea, gardenia - Stimulate the liver, enhancing the elimination of toxins
  • Dandelion, ginger, meadowsweet - These herbs regulate healthy digestion by increasing digestive juices and enzymes
  • Glutamine and zinc - Nutrients to protect and heal the gut


The New You
Undertaking a regular detox may enhance your health and wellbeing, improving quality of life. Many people schedule a detox every six or twelve months for optimal health to help improve the balance between your body’s toxin burden and its detox capacity. By the end of your detoxification program your efforts should see you looking good and feeling great.
