What is Detoxification?

Detoxification is the body's natural, ongoing process of neutralising or eliminating toxins from the body. Toxins (anything that can potentially harm body tissue) are transformed chemically to less harmful compounds and excreted via stools or urine.

Why Detoxify?

Our bodies are assailed day in, day out with chemicals from environmental pollutants, medications, contaminants in our water supply, pesticides and hormones in our food supply, alcohol, and the list goes on.

As the toxic load in our bodies becomes increasingly alarming, detoxification is indeed important for our overall good health.

Although our body's natural detoxification processes are quite amazing, there are now over 70,000+ chemicals in existence, and most have been developed in the past 100 years!  The human body has simply not evolved quickly enough to keep up with this growing exposure to toxic chemicals.

What's more, your body's natural detoxification may be impaired by factors such as:

  • inadequate nutrients, vitamins and minerals that the liver and other detoxification systems need to perform effectively;
  • certain medications;
  • poor liver health;
  • constipation;
  • poor kidney health;
  • insufficient detoxifying enzymes

The result is toxic burden - an accumulation of harmful toxins in your body which can impact:

  • premature aging
  • joint and skin health
  • gastrointestinal / cardiovascular and neurological health
  • immunity and fatigue
  • hormone imbalances

What is the best way to Detoxify?

We recommend that any detoxification program is undertaken with assistance from your healthcare professional to ensure that you are providing your body with the right nutrients at the right time.  Your healthcare professional will also be able to support your unique requirements and monitor any adverse reactions or side effects which may occur as your body is cleansing.
