WHY DETOX IN THE FIRST PLACE?
In the 21st century toxicity is unavoidable. We are all exposed to some of the residual burden of the two to three thousand new-to-nature chemicals which are invented and released into the environment every year; we are exposed through air, water, soil and food. We also produce many toxins in our own bodies that are associated with common clinical conditions. We are all different in our responses due to a combination of our genes, age, lifestyle, immune reactivity, antioxidant defence and other factors which determine our resistance to toxicity.
Just eating more vegetables and staying off alcohol is not really detoxing – that’s just known as eating better. Many people do not use professional advice or products to achieve the best results.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DETOXIFICATION?
- More energy
- Improved health
- Feeling younger
- Better understanding of your own body
What does an integrated evidence-based detoxification program really mean for you as opposed to a store bought ‘detox’?
A therapeutic detoxification strategy treats the gut first, then the liver, supports the kidneys and enhances cellular function.
Signs of toxicity are linked and also are the drivers in chronic disease. Lifestyles that cause us to be overweight, sedentary, stressed and tired contribute to the load.
We use the following screening tools to help assess, motivate and track progress during detoxification.
