Is It Time to to Consider a Detox?

Your Wellness Centre Naturopathy - Healthy Food - Detox

Since we all tend to over indulge in stodgy comfort food over the winter months, it’s about now that we start to feel a bit uncomfortable, with a few more inches around the waist.

Now’s the time to do something about it before it gets out of hand. And over the years I have found that an easy to do efficient detoxification process is just what’s needed so that you can look and feel healthier and be ready for Spring.

Just What is Detoxification?

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.

Have you noticed any signs or symptoms that indicate your body may be suffering from the burden of toxins and be in need of a good detox?

Signs and factors that indicate you may need to detox:

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.

We will recommend a Detox Program that is tailored to your individual health needs. Therapeutic detox options include an Integrated Detoxification, or a Specialised Gut, Liver or Heavy Metal Chelation Program for more targeted results.

So Detox and Renew Your Life

When detoxing, it is important to reduce the toxic load that you are encountering in your daily life. This includes a detox diet to encourage clean eating and reduce your exposure to dietary toxins. This diet will be rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, low in animal fats, and contain alkalising, and anti-inflammatory foods.

Other sources of Toxicity

It is just as important to remove other “toxins” from your daily life that may be affecting your health.

Stress is a major factor that may need addressing.

We may also advise you to do an audit of toxic household chemicals by reviewing your personal care items, cleaning products, and plastics used for food containers and water bottles.

The New You

By the end of your Detoxification Program you will be looking good and feeling great.

What’s Involved in Detox?

Your individualised Detoxification Program will involve 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.
