What’s the big deal about a detox?

Detox. It’s a term you’ve no doubt heard a lot of on TV, in magazines
or in the gym. But why should you ‘detox’? Detoxification is your
body’s natural process of changing dietary and environmental
toxins into less harmful substances before eliminating them from
your body. Supporting natural detoxification processes can help
improve digestive function and may facilitate healthy weight loss.

However, the benefits do not stop there as healthy detoxification
pathways may also lead to a reduction in other seemingly
unrelated symptoms, such as sore joints or painful periods. Even
if you’re fit and well, for many people a regular detox leaves them
feeling more energised whilst reducing the toxin load.

The term ‘toxin’ refers to any substance with the potential to
interfere with normal cellular function and which may negatively
impact both your short and long-term health. You do not have
to look very far to find toxins as they may be found in household
chemicals, personal care products, and also in some foods
(e.g. food may be exposed to pesticide residues or toxic metal

Your body is designed to remove these toxins
via the ‘channels of elimination’, i.e. your liver, kidneys, bowels
and skin; however it is possible for these channels to become
overwhelmed, depending upon your level of exposure, and this
may reduce your overall health and wellbeing.
Walk into any pharmacy or health food store today and you will
find a number of over the counter detox products. However, since
these packages don’t assess your individual health requirements
they are limited in their ability to meet your detoxification needs.
A personalised program based on your specific health history,
together with the added benefit of professional support and
advice from your qualified Practitioner can have a much greater
impact on your detox capacity – helping to promote long-term
wellbeing beyond the duration of the program.
Our Practitioner Only Detox Program incorporates three key
herbal and nutritional formulas, based on scientific research,
to lay the foundation for effective detoxification. These formulas
focus on supporting the three main channels of elimination: the
liver, kidneys and optimal digestion.

The first formula helps optimise your liver’s detoxifying capacity.
It contains the herb Milk thistle along with Cape jasmine and
Green tea to help protect your body from the harmful effects
of metabolising toxins. In addition, the amino acids taurine and
glutamine support liver detoxification pathways and promote a
healthy digestive tract.

The second formula incorporates the greens Spirulina, Coriander,
Kelp and Aloe. These herbs assist with the binding of toxins and
promote alkalinisation, since an alkaline pH is required for
effective removal of wastes via the kidney.

Finally, a traditional herbal formula containing Dandelion,
Gentian, Lemon balm and Ginger not only helps to minimise
any existing symptoms of poor digestion such as burping and
bloating, but helps stimulate the digestive secretions and bile
flow you require for optimal digestive function.
Modern diets can be a major source of ongoing toxin exposure
due to the intake of caffeine, alcohol and refined processed
foods, which typically contain artificial additives, preservatives
and toxic fats. Not only do these add to your toxin burden but
put unnecessary pressure on your organs of detoxification. By
minimising certain foods, whilst increasing your intake of plantbased
wholefoods, you can enhance the effects of the herbal
and nutritional formulas and boost your detox capacity.

During your personalised detox program, your Practitioner will advise
you on the specific dietary and lifestyle measures that will help
you get the best results.
Supporting effective detoxification is a cornerstone of Natural
Medicine practice. A personalised detox program prescribed by
your Practitioner can not only help you achieve optimal results
but offers long-term benefits for your health and wellbeing
that cannot be matched by an over the counter package.

The Practitioner Only Detox Programs are simple and easy to follow,
accompanied by a comprehensive diet and lifestyle plan, and
